PREGNANCY OVER 50, YES, IT HAPPENS NATURALLY, NO IVF

I frequently write about pregnancy over 40...I share how I prepared my body, mind with the right foods, the right lifestyle and paying attention to the mind-body connection.  My pregnancy was very deliberate.  But what about older women who get pregnant by surprise?  Most women over 50 aren't trying to get pregnant.  Yes, there are those who use donor eggs and go through fertility treatments, but there are also those who are completely shocked that they got pregnant.  Pregnancy over 40 certainly isn't as common as pregnancy over 40, but it does happen.  I have devoted a page on my website to this topic.  These are documented cases of women who were shocked to find out that they were pregnant.  Most thought they were going through some type of terminal illness.  It just goes to show you that age is just a number.

COENZYME Q10 FOR FERTILITY IN MEN AND WOMEN

I have written and number of articles about CoQ10 and male and female fertility, here is a fairly recent article written by 

Coenzyme Q10 (a.k.a. CoQ10) is all the rage right now with male and female fertility. So why is this one supplement, creating all the buzz? Well, CoQ10 is found in virtually almost all cells of our body including the ovaries. It is the fuel source for the mitochondria – which are the so called “power plant” within our cells where energy is generated. So, it is important for our body! Below is everything you need to know about this popular supplement and its benefit to fertility.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

What is CoQ10’s function?

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble molecule allowing it to flow freely in our cellular membrane (the layer that covers our cells). CoQ10 has a specific role in the mitochondria – it transfers electrons across the cellular membrane in the “electron transport chain.” Electrical energy is generated through this process creating energy in the form of ATP. All of the cells in our body use ATP as fuel!
CoQ10 is also known for its antioxidant properties – meaning it inhibits oxidation reactions. Sounds confusing? Well, oxidation reactions can produce free radicals that can be damaging to our cells.

 SEE ALSO: DHEA AND FERTILITY IN OLDER WOMEN (getpregnantover40.com)

Sources of CoQ10

Our bodies naturally create CoQ10 so it is not considered a vitamin and it does not need to be supplied through the diet. We do get some CoQ10 from meat, poultry, or sardine consumption. However, studies haven’t shown that increasing dietary intake of CoQ10 results in higher levels in the body.

CoQ10, Energy and Egg Quality

It is well documented that female fertility declines around age 30. But why is this the case? The main issue is the quality of eggs. Egg quality is important because it relates to the genetic status of the egg. As we age, our mitochondria also become more damaged and become less efficient at generating energy. The human egg has more mitochondria than any other cell in the body! (Remember, CoQ10 is the fuel source for the mitochondria!).

The concentration of CoQ10 in the body begins to decline around 30 years of age

So, in theory, older eggs result in increased mitochondrial damage and decreased CoQ10. If the eggs could function more efficiently and effectively, with more energy produced by the mitochondria with the help of CoQ10, maybe the egg quality would be better as well.
It is really about ensuring the egg has the energy it needs to complete all the processes that are involved in ensuring proper maturation and fertilization. 

Benefits CoQ10 for Fertility

Several studies have been completed monitoring teh concentration of CoQ10 in aging mice. One study showed that CoQ10 increases energy production and number of eggs ovulated after hormone stimulation.
A human study done on women was able to analyze CoQ10 levels in ovarian follicles and found that higher CoQ10 levels in mature eggs produced good quality embryos. Therefore, it is believed that using CoQ10 before IVF can increase mitochondrial activity – resulting in increased egg numbers and quality.

As always, please speak with your healthcare professional before starting any supplement. There are specific doses and forms of CoQ10 that should be considered for each person.

LIGHT THERAPY MAY RESOLVE INFERTILITY, HELP GETTING PREGNANT

Pregnancy Over 40, Light Therapy And Getting Pregnant

I never tried actual light therapy when I was trying to conceive, however I did make a point of trying to get at least an hour of sunlight every day.
 This site has some useful information about how light is essential for strong menstrual cycles and how women tend to be indoors more than men.  . Read more:

From the site:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Guardian Angel Fertility Necklace and more click here
Two Fold Benefit of Light—Light aids fertility in two ways:
First, Bright light during the day helps increase fertility. Scientists theorize that bright morning and evening light sends a signal to the body clock that it is the right time of year to conceive. (It is more difficult to conceive during the short winter days.) Bright light also controls the overproduction of melatonin, which may stifle fertility.

Second, evening light and dusk simulation help regulate menstrual cycles, and a regular menstrual cycle increases the odds of conception. Several studies show that using light at night regulates irregular and longer menstrual cycles, even in women whose periods lasted nine weeks or more. Irregular and long menstrual cycles were normalized within a few weeks of treatment. Apollo Health has participated in many of these studies.

Why Nightlight Regulates Cycles
While our daily sleep/wake cycles are tied to bright light, menstrual cycles are tied to moonlight. As explained in Dr. Smolensky’s book, The Body Clock Guide to Better Health:

“Our words, ‘menstruation,’ ‘moon,’ and ‘month,’ all come from the Greek word for ‘measure of time.’ A woman’s menstrual cycle runs its course in about twenty-eight days, one lunar cycle.

Circadian Rhythms and Conception
The body clock dictates when the ovaries prepare and release eggs for fertilization. One of the best signs of fertility is immediately after ovulation, when body temperature increases 1°. However, conception is more likely to happen a day or two before this rise in temperature. Maintaining a normal menstrual cycle makes it easier to predict the best time to conceive, and helps relieve the stress some couples experience trying to conceive

PRAYERS TO GET PREGNANT, FERTILITY, MOTHERHOOD & MISCARRIAGE

I know many people use prayer instead of or with visualization and meditation.  If prayer is part of your daily ritual and religion is an important part of your life, by all means, make it part of your fertility routine.  Even though I said many prayers on the road to parenthood, I found visualization and meditation to be empowering as well (see my meditation page here).  Do both if you choose.

If you need some fertility prayers, here are a few from the Christian perspective.  I realize I have readers from all over the world with different religions, but these can be modified to fit your belief system:

HOW PESTICIDES CAN THREATEN PREGNANCY AND FERTILITY

Pesticides in Pregnancy

I previously published an article about how pesticide exposure in pregnancy can affect the child's IQ. I've also heard that if you examine the breast tissue of most women, you will find pesticides and other hormone disrupting chemicals.
 That's scary since most women don't live near areas where these chemicals are sprayed. We're just exposed to them in our day to day lives. Pregnant women are no exception.  The University of Granada found that there were fifteen different pesticide chemicals and substances found in pregnant women.  Substances called organochlorines could affect a baby's urogenital system development.
It's hard to avoid these substances because they can not only be in our food, but also our water, air and soil.

BEST INTERCOURSE POSITIONS TO GET PREGNANT

Trying To Conceive Over 40, Positions That Help

Okay, this isn't exactly a dinner table topic when you're at your mom's house, but it is certainly worth reading about.
 There are certain sexual positions which are better than others if you're trying to conceive. Here is an article that explains more  (the first one mentioned is how I conceive my daughter):

From the article:


Best Positions
The man-on-top position works well when trying to conceive. Place a small pillow under your hips
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Amethyst Elephant Fertility Bracelet click here
following intercourse so that your cervix basically rests in the pool of semen for a short time (perhaps 20 minutes or so). This will allow the sperm time to easily swim up through the cervix. (Important Note: Do not use a large pillow, or you may sabotage your efforts, since the sperm may then puddle behind your cervix. Not a good place to be when trying to reach that egg.)

SEE ALSO: THE PROS AND CONS OF FERTILITY CHARTING BBT (getpregnantover40.com)

If you have a tipped uterus, you may have better luck having intercourse from behind (hands and knees position). By having intercourse in this position it allows the sperm better access to the cervix.

Positons to Avoid
For most women it makes sense to avoid straddling their partner while making love -- woman-on-top, sitting or standing -- since this can cause the semen to leak and may result in fewer sperm making their way to the egg.

YOGA POSES TO HELP GET PREGNANT, IMPROVE FERTILITY AND CIRCULATION

Yoga Poses To Help You Get Pregnant Over 40

Even though we're a nation of couch potatoes, or perhaps more accurately, "office chair potatoes", for much of my adult life, I had the opposite problem. I worked out too much. I was an exercise fanatic - and the harder and more high impact the exercise was, the better.
When I went in for a few trial treatments of acupuncture, the acupuncturist told me that my body didn't have the "constitution" for heavy exercise. She said it was much harder to conceive when you're under so much physical stress.

"So what should I do"? I asked. She recommended yoga. After some research, I found that there are
some yoga poses and postures that can directly benefit the reproductive system by opening up the pelvic region and the surrounding structures to increase pelvic circulation. Additionally, yoga can help with overall relaxation.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Our selection of Fertility Bracelets, click here

Here is a summary of some of the yoga poses which can benefit the reproductive system:

1. The Bridge Pose - the bridge stimulates abdominal organs and can relieve menstrual discomfort if done regularly. It calms the brain and can help with stress. Start by lying on the floor. Bend your knees, put your fee flat on the floor as close to your sit bones as possible. Bring your buttocks up until you form a bridge and bring your hands together clasped underneath you.
2. The Cobbler's Pose - this pose also stimulates abdominal organs, ovaries and is thought to be a natural remedy for infertility. Sit on the floor, bend your knees and let them lay out to the side. Bring your feet together and hold the toes or ankles with your hands.
3. The Lotus pose - this pose stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen and bladder. It can help ease the pain of childbirth if done throughout pregnancy. This pose starts by sitting cross legged on the floor. Slowly bring one foot on top of your thigh then the other foot on top of the other thigh. If this is painful, you may stay seated cross legged. Bring your thumb and middle fingers together and rest on your knees
4. The Reclining Hero pose - this pose probably needs to be done with support (a bolster pillow can be used along the length of your back). The reclining hero pose helps open up and stretch the abdomen and it can ease menstrual pain. This pose begins by kneeling then sitting down between your feet then slowly reclining down until you are laying on the floor. This is an intermediate pose and you may need additional support with a second pillow on your back until you become more experienced.

In my DVD, "Fertility Bodywork"(www.getpregnantover40.com) I demonstrate these yoga poses among others and I also have a segment on fertility pelvic massage, acupressure and reflexology and daily routines which help increase pelvic circulation and oxygenation.

PROSTAGLANDINS CAN HARM OR HELP FERTILITY

Here is another great site that goes into what you can do to encourage the formation of "good" prostaglandins and avoid the "bad" prostaglandins. This can help with painful periods and ultimately improves fertility. Read more:

Another cause of painful periods can be the excess production and release of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Many of the prostaglandins are actually ‘healthy’, and have a beneficial effect on the body (see page 154). However, two types of ‘bad’ prostaglandins, known as PGF2 Alpha and PGE2, can be increased in some women. PGF2 Alpha is a vasoconstrictor, which means that it works to reduce the blood flow to the womb muscle, and PGE2 is a highly inflammatory
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard Fertility Necklace and Prayer
substance that can trigger muscle contractions and increase the sensitivity of your nerve endings to pain.

See Also: DHEA For Fertility (www.getpregnantover40.com)

Research has shown that women with primary dysmenorrhoea have significantly higher levels of of both prostaglandins PGF2 Alpha and PGE2.

Prostaglandins are present in every cell in your body. They tend to be low in the first half of the cycle and then rise sharply towards your period, and can cause a variety of other symptoms including headaches, nausea and fatigue.

CAN DHEA HELP EGG QUALITY AND CHANCES OF PREGNANCY?

Top 10 Facts on DHEA and Fertility

Guest Post By Anna Millar

Are you considering supplementing with DHEA to increase your chances of falling pregnant?
To assist you in the decision making process we have compiled the following list of facts on the use of DHEA to increase fertility.
These top 10 facts on DHEA, in terms of your fertility, are important to know if you are considering taking DHEA to increase your chances of conceiving and, especially, if you are a woman over the age of 40.
1. What is DHEA?
DHEA stands for dehydroepiandrosterone. Whilst that sounds like a scary term what you basically need to know is that it is an endogenous hormone (which means it is produced by your body). To be exact it is produced by your adrenal glands which sit on top of your kidneys.

READ MORE ABOUT DHEA HERE (GETPREGNANTOVER40.COM)

2. Why is DHEA Important?
DHEA production in your body is vital as it is a precursor to your sex hormones. These sex hormones
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertility Bracelets with Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Moonstone
are critical to maintain health, muscle tone, sexual function, fertility, and general homeostasis (balance) within the body. Your body's DHEA production is generally greatest during your mid-20s and then steadily declines as you age. Without adequate DHEA production your body cannot produce the correct amount of estrogen to enable successful ovulation (and thus a fertile cycle).
3. Premature Ovarian Aging
The most common fertility issue, which ladies over the age of 40 who wish to get pregnant experience, is Premature Ovarian Aging (POA). Women who are diagnosed with POA are found to have a much earlier decline of ovarian function than the norm. Clinical trials have shown that participants suffering POA that took DHEA supplementation as a fertility treatment experienced an increased success rate in falling pregnant. This is because the DHEA hormone is a precursor to the sex hormones in your body (estrogen, testosterone, estradiol, etc...), which are necessary for the body to successfully ovulate and create the ideal environment for conception.
4. Which DHEA Supplement Should I Take to Increase Fertility?
Supplemental DHEA for women wishing to increase their fertility levels should not be confused with supplemental 7 Keto DHEA. The Keto hormone, found in 7 Keto DHEA supplements, in your body has already been metabolized past the point where estrogen, estradiol, and estrone can be created from it. In most instances, the DHEA 25 mg supplement is what is necessary to assist older women in becoming pregnant, however you should seek advice from a health care professional before deciding on a dosage amount. For example, a woman in her 30s would need a different dosage to a woman of similar health in her 40s.
5. DHEA Fertility Study Results
A clinical study from Israel showed how the use of DHEA, along with other fertility treatments, actually improved the percentage of conceiving and carrying a healthy pregnancy from 4% to 23% in older women. The DHEA dosage was 75 mg per day and taken for 6 months.
6. Use of DHEA in Fertility Clinics
Over 33% of modern fertility clinics use DHEA fertility treatments to increase the chances of their patients conceiving. DHEA supplementation is used with women even if they have severely diminished ovarian reserves to encourage the hormonal conditions necessary to enable healthy ovulation of the eggs, and therefore increasing the chances of conception.
7. DHEA Lowers the Chances of Miscarriage
A study from the journal of Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology has found that when a woman takes DHEA, it was shown that it also lowers her chances of a miscarriage.
8. Links Between DHEA and Ovulation
The world renowned Mayo Clinic has also issued a statement about the benefits DHEA, in regards to fertility, and its benefits. They agree that a woman taking a DHEA supplement finds it is easier to ovulate and become pregnant.
9. DHEA Side Effects
The recommended DHEA dosage for assistance in fertility by the University of Maryland Medical Center is 25 mg per day. Higher doses might result in unwanted masculine features appearing on the participants.
10. Talk To Your Doctor First
The last, and most important, of our Top 10 Facts on DHEA and Fertility is to speak to your Doctor or health practitioner before commencing any DHEA supplementation. DHEA is still a hormone, which you are introducing into your body. Taking the incorrect amount for your current state of being and purpose can have detrimental effects. So please seek professional advice first!

MEDITERRANEAN DIET, GREAT FOR GETTING PREGNANT

Pregnancy Over 40, The Mediterranean Diet Can Help

I've heard about how the Mediterranean diet can help with weight loss, but it can also help with fertility.  This type of diet is rich in good fats with help regulate hormones.
 This article talks about how it can clear sugar out of the bloodstream and help balance hormones. Read more:

Rich in so many of the vitamins and minerals you (and your baby-to-be) will need to stay nourished during pregnancy, foods commonly consumed as part of a Mediterranean diet include tomatoes, spinach, olive oil, chickpeas, whole grain pasta, rice, fish, and chicken. These foods are less sugary than processed foods, notes Dr. Chavarro, but certain ingredients in these foods also play a special

role in keeping hormone levels balanced and healthy.

"The Mediterranean diet contains nutrients that help your body clear sugar from the bloodstream while using less insulin to do this job. This makes it easier for the body to keep the balance of reproductive hormones," says Dr. Chavarro.
The Research

To track the effects of a Mediterranean-style diet on fertility, Spanish researchers looked at over 2,000 women, some with fertility problems and others who had already become pregnant and given birth. When women's fertility and eating habits were matched up, only 17 percent women who meticulously followed a Mediterranean-style diet said they'd experienced trouble getting pregnant, while 26 percent of women who followed the diet least closely—and instead ate more processed foods and fatty meats—ended up with fertility problems.

CAN SPIRULINA HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

Spirulina is being called a "superfood" because it has so many health benefits.  If you are trying to conceive, spirulina has some of the following properties which can help fertility and pregnancy:
  • It is high in protein and amino acids needed for egg development and quality
  • It can work as a hormone regulator
  • It can encourage the good bacteria in your body
  • The chlorophyll can help remove toxins from the body which is important before you conceive
  • It is high in iron and folic acid which is important before and during pregnancy
  • It is high in calcium which is important in pregnancy

Spirulina Benefits - What Is Spirulina?

Guest Post By Warren J Becker

By now a lot of people have heard how spirulina benefits the body, but just what the heck is it?
Spirulina is actually a single celled organism from the cyanobacterium family, which is really just a fancy way of saying algae, (which is just fancy way of saying green pond scum). Don't let his small size fool you though, spirulina has a higher nutrient concentration then almost any other natural food!
Cyanobacterium are also known as 'blue green algae' and they grow all over the world, thriving in warm climates with lots of sun. Although blue green algae often lives in the ocean, spirulina is naturally found in lakes. These lakes are very high alkaline, meaning they are very salty, and usually do not support other life forms. The saline water in which it grows is what gives this supplement it's salty taste!
The deep green color, not to mention the health benefits of spirulina, come from the high chlorophyll concentration in the cells. Chlorophyll is a product of photosynthesis, otherwise known as converting sunlight into energy, and is considered to be like the blood of plants. This green pigment is a fantastic cleansing agent and has countless benefits for our body including cleansing our blood of toxins, keeping our brains sharp and providing great energy and endurance! Spirulina is known to have the highest concentration of any food on the planet! WOW!

This little guy is one of the oldest forms of life on earth! Dating back 3 1/2 billion years is a pretty big accomplishment! In fact, spirulina has been used as a food source for centuries as well! The ancient Aztecs and colonies who lived around Lake Chad in Africa would harvest the algae and dry it into cakes to eat.
The name 'Spirulina' is derived from the Latin word for 'spiral', as the cells link together to form microscopic spiralling strands.
Although this chlorophyll dense plant grows in the wild, most commercially available spirulina is grown in a controlled environment to ensure that pollutants do not contaminate the product. Countries like America, Mexico, Thailand and Burma (to name a few) have adopted the cultivation of spirulina in their industries.
When spirulina is harvested it is laid to dry before being crushed into flakes or powder. Flakes can be easily added to salads or sauces, while the powder can be mixed with water or in shakes. Alternatively the powder is pressed into tablets or encapsulated for easy consumption!
Start with taking just a half teaspoon a day, it is a great way to see how spirulina benefits you!

CAN SAW PALMETTO HELP MEN'S FERTILITY, SPERM COUNT?

Saw Palmetto for Men's Health

Guest Post By Mark Fantini

If you ever been to the sea islands off of South Carolina, Georgia, or Florida, you might have seen scrub bushes with six to seven pronged fronds that can leave a nasty scratch if you brush up on them. These are known as Saw Palmettos, and although they tend to grow like weeds off of the South Eastern seaboard, they are actually a beneficial plant whose raisin like fruit has been harvested for centuries for its ability to help enhance men's sexual health.
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saints For Fertility, pendants and prayers, click here
Saw Palmetto was first used by the Native Americans as a tonic to help increase a man's overall virility. It was believed to help increase sex drive, enhance fertility, cure impotency, and to even with urinary tract problems. It was generally combined with nettles and pumpkin seeds in order to help enhance its effectiveness. During Modern Times Saw Palmetto remained a popular medical tonic in this country well into middle of the 20th Century before being replaced by modern pharmaceuticals.

While Saw Palmetto was virtually ignored by the US Medical Establishment, it remained popular in Europe, becoming an oft prescribed supplement for men suffering from BPH. Scientific studies have
found that Saw Palmetto can help reduce the frequent urge to urinate which is the most common symptom of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Researchers also believe that Saw Palmetto might actually help prevent the growth of tumors associated with prostate cancer although more research is needed.
Saw Palmetto is not only good for your prostate and overall urinary tract health, it has also been found to help increase men's libido making it a popular addition to many natural male enhancement supplements. It is also thought that Saw Palmetto can actually help prevent premature balding, making it just about the ideal thing for all men to start taking.
For most people Saw Palmetto is safe. Any side effects are usually very mild and can include dizziness, nausea and headaches, and still, it is very unlikely that you will get any of them. Also, Saw Palmetto might slow blood clotting and should be avoided, if you are taking blood thinning drugs.
Due to its ability to improve men's health, Saw Palmetto is a key ingredient in many multivitamin's for men. If you are looking for a way to help reduce the frequent urge to urinate, to prevent the painful burning of urinary tract infections, or to increase your sex drive, be sure to start using a supplement that contains Saw Palmetto.

EARTHING, BIORYTHMS, GROUNDING: HELP FERTILITY

Earthing to get pregnant

There is a practice called “earthing” which is simply walking barefoot on grass, soil, sand and so on.  Whenever possible get outside (perhaps while on a walk to get your sunlight) and remove your shoes on non-paved or non-concrete earth surfaces.  Better yet, sit directly on the grass while you eat your lunch.  This is thought to draw electrons from the earth which has been associated with a number of health benefits including stress reduction and regulating our biological clocks and rhythms.  One study found, “The research done to date supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation.”[1]  This is one reason why I feel that wearing fertility jewelry with natural stones is so effective.  Crystals and stones vibrate at their own frequency just like the cells in our body vibrate at their own frequency. When the cells in our body come in contact with the stone's frequency, energetic changes occur. These changes can create a third and larger energetic field. The body's nervous system senses these changes and sends the information to the brain. The brain triggers biochemical healing within the body.
Earthing is also thought to neutralize free radicals that can cause harm and cell damage in your body.  I've heard that doctors are actually prescribing outdoor activities for kids nowadays since so many of them are sitting in front of one type of technology or another.  

If you think about it, getting pregnant is one of the most natural and "earthy" experiences for human beings.  Get outside, especially while the weather is still warm and get back to nature.  It sure beats going through high tech sterile fertility procedures!

ALOE VERA TO HELP FERTILITY, HOW TO DETOXIFY

Pregnancy and Fertility detoxification has been of interest to me for many years, especially while I was trying to conceive.  I've devoted a few pages on my website to this topic (see fertility detox
 and environmental detox).  Here is some information about how Aloe Vera can help you detoxify.  It is also a high alkaline food which is good for fertility.  Read more:

Aloe Vera Cleansing &  Detox


Dating back to 4000 BC, the entire plant -whole leaf, not just aloe vera gel with the unfiltered yellow sap and inner gel - was revered as an herbal medicine chest. It was used as an elixir in food or water for anything that ailed the family.

Today we have many of the same health issues that were linked to poor health centuries ago, including constipation, lung and liver congestion, troubled skin, blood sugar imbalance, allergies, heart burn, poor digestion and gas, along with weak immunity. Health experts agree that using a quality aloe vera product supports all the pathways for body wellness, including detoxification.

Detoxification is a critical step in body health. When the body receives the proper nutrients from foods, water, sleep and exercise, a natural process of cleansing waste and elimination toxins takes place both on a cellular and deep tissue level.

Channels of detox include the skin, lymph, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels. Unfortunately, many people do not give the body what it requires to detoxify or may have an under-functioning digestive tract that leads to a buildup of toxic waste in the cells and tissues. Environmental toxins like mercury, lead, arsenic, and other pollutants can add to the toxic burden and need to be cleansed out of the cells in order to feel good again.

Factors Influencing Waste and Toxicity in the Body
Poor Digestion - Bowel Disease (both IBS and advanced bowel disease, including reflux) is linked to low and improper gastric juices in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This leads to incomplete digestion of foods and varying degrees of inflammatory reactions in the gut, creating waste. It is best to experiment eating less of the complex carbohydrates of whole grains, milk and soft cheeses (even yogurts), refined sugar and certain thickeners. Choose foods (as tolerated) from fish, lean meats, beans, yams, red potato, vegetables and seasonal fruits (peeled) to lower symptoms .
 Food Abuse - Glycation describes an inflammatory sludge that develops in the body tissues from eating excessive carbohydrates and sugars. They disrupt the ability of enzymes to bind properly with certain protein compounds that lead to waste and premature aging. Cardiologists have found this factor to add to the potential for cardiovascular disease (CVD) issues.
    Constipation or Slow Bowels - Associated with a sluggish liver, constipation can cause more bloating, gas, pain and bad breath, allowing for the putrification of food by-products. Hundreds of bad bacteria, yeast, parasites and secondary chemical compounds are allowed to multiply. Each of these work against the immune system, causing more waste, allergy responses and yeast, further blocking absorpion of nutrients into the blood stream. Daily regularity is important for optimum health.

Complete detox relies on healthy liver function. Its many jobs include filtering the blood of waste and old cells, plus processing fat soluble vitamins A, E, D, K and Omegas 3, 6, 9 and proteins required for healthy skin and body. Also, production of bile for fat digestion, alkalinizing the GI tract (post-digestion) and making Phase II Enzymes that guard against cancer and premature aging are all very important liver functions that discourage disease.

Aloe vera is not only soothing to your digestive tract, but it can help to calm your nerves as well. It supports your adrenal glands by responding to stress in a healthy way. Aloe vera is an adaptogen -- a botanical that helps the body adapt to stress. Adaptogens like aloe vera help your adrenals cope with internal and external stressors in a gentle, stable way rather than with a sudden jolt in cortisol, a stress hormone. This helps to keep your mood and energy levels balanced and reduces your overall stress levels.

CAN PROBIOTICS HELP FERTILITY, VAGINAL HEALTH?

Fertility Yogurt Recipe with Probiotics click here
What exactly are probiotics and how can they help you get pregnant? Most of us think that bacteria are bad, but many bacteria and yeasts are actually good for your digestive system. The term probiotics refers to the good or helpful bacteria. The medical profession is really trying to cut down on the use of antibiotics. Antibiotics not only kill off bad bacteria, but they can also kill off helpful bacteria (not to mention encouraging the growth of so called "superbugs" that can be deadly. What are good sources of probiotics? This article can help answer some of those questions:

FERTILITY FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS FROM ACUPUNCTURIST

Fertility Acupuncture: Foods for Fertility

Guest Post By John Z Wheeler
Acupuncture is now widely used to help with Infertility. Chinese Medicine also uses nutrition along with acupuncture to increase fertility. Here are a few tips to increase fertility:
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Chakra Fertility Bracelet with Carnelian targeting Sacral Chakra
Warm cooked foods are strongly recommended, especially root vegetables. Chicken soup with ginger is often recommended in China for women trying to conceive.
Add vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. These foods contain di-indolymethane (DIM) which increases the metabolism of estradiol (a form of oestrogen) which will help the body use it more efficiently. In excess estradiol is associated with breast pain, weight gain,
uterine cancer and moodiness with low libido. Adding DIM will counteract these effects.
Balancing blood sugar levels will help with hormonal regulation and energy levels. This involves reducing high carbohydrates, the foods which release glucose quickly into the body. These include white sugar, biscuits, cakes, sugary drinks, too much fruit, cereals, bread, pasta, caffeine and alcohol.
Try to:
Eat a warm breakfast within one hour of waking up. Preferably oats, quinoe and a boiled egg or two.
Have protein with every meal.
Do not skip meals.
Google GI Foods and choose foods with low GI index.
Eat more alkaline foods then acidic foods for a better pH balance for conception. Eat alkaline foods such as vegetables, sprouts, non citrus foods and cereal grasses such as wheat and barley grass. Acidic foods include meat and dairy products. Chewing food thoroughly will increase this through the alkalizing property of saliva. Do this instead of drinking anything at meal times. Avoid heavy meals late at night.
Always try to use organic plant sources, these are stronger in Qi and essence which is important in Chinese medicine for fertility.
Get plenty of essential fatty acids from unprocessed plant sources and deep sea fish.
These are essential for the health of our cells and are crucial in ovulation.
Good sources include:
Fish and fish oil.
Eggs.
Soy products.
Raw nuts and seeds.
Flaxseed and Pumpkin seed oils
Dark green vegetables.
It is essential to avoid junk food, do lots of healthy exercise like yoga or tai qi, long walks etc and more important then anything else... Relax.
Supplement your diet with natural, high-potency multivitamin and mineral complex with iron, folic acid and B vitamins.
The vitamins and minerals important for reproductive health (Vit A,C,E, B complex, zinc and selenium) enhance fertility yet are lacking in the usual western high processed diet. If these nutrients were adequately supplied through the diet, many fertility problems could be avoided. Other supplements to keep in mind are as follows:
Folic Acid - Extremely important and should be taken as soon as possible. The lack of folic acid can impair the early development of the nervous system of the foetus.
Bee pollen and/or royal jelly are regenerative and tonifying.
Blue-green algae i.e. chlorella and spirulina nourish the endocrine, nervous and immune system, regulate metabolism and repair tissue.
Wheatgrass is tonifying and enhances immunity and restores hormonal function.
Vitamin B6 recommended for hormonal function. Best to take complete B complex. (Viridian does a B6 complex which has all the B vitamins with a strong B6 content.
Co-enzyme Q-10 assists energy levels working on the cells powerhouse.
I would recommend starting with a mild detoxification programme for 7-10 days to improve your chances of fertility. This will help the liver in its function of filtering toxins.
Foods you can eat liberally:
Vegetables - eat a large variety of vegetables, especially:
Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower as previously mentioned.

EARLY PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS, STRANGE WEIRD AND UNUSUAL

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle Bracelet - click here for our complete line
If you are trying to conceive, you analyze and probably over-analyze every little change in your body....not to mention hoarding pregnancy tests.  Do you think you may be pregnant but you're not sure of the signs and symptoms? I had quite a few pregnancies before I had my daughter. Even though most of them ended in miscarriage, I noticed that
there were some strange signs and symptoms of pregnancy. Even in my earliest days after conception, I could feel butterflies in my abdomen. I also would have sore breasts and tiny little waves of nausea. It seems crazy that such a microscopic change in your body can create such noticeable symptoms. When I ran an infertility support group, there was one woman there (who finally became pregnant naturally) who swore she felt herself conceive! Impossible? Maybe not! Read more about some strange signs and symptoms that you might be pregnant:
