Some Keys To Connection, Happiness, & Maybe Fertility


I've posted a very good article below about how you can be more content and happy by surrounding yourself with nature, people and even pets! I truly believe that the more content you are, the more you will attract what you want in your life (including a baby!)

Making Connections: Eight Ways to Connect

This article is from Dr. Andrew Weil's website - I've been a fan of Dr. Weil for many years and have read many of his books and publications. I like the fact that he is an MD who is supportive of alternative therapies. Hopefully his research and knowledge will permeate traditional western medicine.

Cruciferous Vegetables and Monosaturated Fats For His Fertility

Men can do quite a bit to enhance their fertility by eating hormone regulating foods. Vegetables which fall into the "cruciferous" category are great for men. This article also explains how the right fats can help. Read more:

How Eating Cruciferous Vegetables and Monosaturated Fats Can Elevate Testosterone Production (factoidz.com)

From the article:

1. Increase the number of meals

If a person is taking two or three meals a day, he should start taking 6 meals a day. Though it is a little bit difficult, he must do it, as the frequent intakes of meals naturally regulate the hormonal processes and metabolism.

2. Meals with mono-saturated fats

There is an amazing fact about fat is that it regulates the hormonal process in the body. Fat is considered a micro nutrient which has the ability to raise the level of testosterone in the body. But for this mono saturated fats are preferred. Peanuts, avocados, fish and healthy oils like flax seed, olive and canola contain essential fatty acids which must be taken regularly.

3. Intake of cruciferous vegetables

Vegetables like Broccoli, radishes, cauliflower, cabbage, turnips, and brussel sprouts are known as cruciferous. They are known for decreasing the estrogen level and increasing the testosterone level. But soya protein should be avoided as it may have adverse effect.

Yes, Daily Intercourse Helps Sperm Quality

The amount of intercourse recommended if a couple is trying to conceive has been debated.
I've read countless articles which say every day, every other day, etc. etc. etc.

This article seems to support having intercourse every day up to a week before ovulation. There seems to be value in moving the sperm through the male reproductive system so there is always a new fresh supply. Read more:

From the article:

we found that although frequent ejaculation decreased semen volume and sperm concentrations, it did not compromise sperm motility and, in fact, this rose slightly but significantly.

“Further research is required to see whether the improvement in these men’s sperm quality translates into better pregnancy rates, but other, previous studies have shown the relationship between sperm DNA damage and pregnancy rates.

“The optimal number of days of ejaculation might be more or less than seven days, but a week appears manageable and favourable. It seems safe to conclude that couples with relatively normal semen parameters should have sex daily for up to a week before the ovulation date.

Pregnant Naturally With Alternative Treatments




This YouTube video from www.hunyuan.org is a testimonal about a couple who had been told their chances of conceiving were slim to none. They followed an all natural program and got pregnant naturally despite the odds. Her testimonial is more proof that there is hope even in extreme circumstances. I hear from women every day who supposedly beat the odds (but I'm not sure what the "odds" are based on!)

Age Is Not A Contraceptive!

Surprise Pregnancies over 40

On my website, I write about how I became pregnant by surprise at the age of 49 after having my successful pregnancy with my daughter at the age of 44.

Surprise Pregnancy at 43, Then Another 2 Years Later

Wow, what an interesting story. This Christian site did an article on a book called "Surprise Child" about a woman who has a surprise pregnancy at the age of 43, then another one two years later. Although the article talks about how she struggled to get through it, it should be encouraging to those of you who think getting pregnant over 40 is impossible. Read more:

From the article:


That last example was the story of Leslie Leyland Fields, a then-43-year-old college professor who found out she was pregnant with her fifth child—and then two years later with her sixth. The news of her fifth and sixth pregnancies did not come easily to Fields or her husband, who thought they were done with diapers and midnight feedings. She writes honestly about her struggle to find joy in these pregnancies in a book called Surprise Child...

...Fields found that her church friends could not understand why she was upset, yet her work colleagues could not understand why she would choose to have two more children. Feeling alone and isolated, Fields says she knew that "God is the maker of life" and that she had "to find a way to receive with open hands these children He had made." And she did just that, realizing in the process that her surprise children were no surprise to God and that He would supply her family with everything they needed, including the strength and joy to love two more children.

Return to Nature, The Best Medicine

With many cases of infertility being attributed to environmental chemicals and toxins, I find it interesting how many of us turn to more drugs and chemicals to solve the problem. This article talks about some of the toxins we are exposed to, how they can cause infertility and some things you can do about it. Read more:


Nutritional and Environmental Approaches to Infertility
by Jaqueline Johnson
(www.positivehealth.com)


From the article:

A letter from Dr Neil Ward (Director of Research, Chemistry, University of Surrey) to the Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine in 1995, on behalf of Foresight (the pre-conceptual care society), stated:

"Out of the 367 couples, 217 with a history of reproductive problems, 89% of women had become pregnant. 327 children had been born since enrolment, with no multiple pregnancies. All babies were born healthy and well developed at between 36-41 weeks. None were transferred to special care baby units...."

The work carried out by Foresight has done much to make all of us realize that a simple return to the remedies and solutions offered by nature itself goes a long way to putting right what ails us, sparing many people the agony of childlessness, or a tragic outcome to pregnancy.

Reproductive, and pregnancy-related problems in humans, are not experienced in isolation. For many years now, scientists have been reporting not only that increasing numbers of animal species have become extinct, but that reproductive failure amongst species, ranging from fish to birds, whales to otters to crocodiles, is causing grave concern. Birth defects, sexual abnormality, unusual diseases and serious burns to the skin of water creatures have been causing concern for decades.[1],[2]

Nature is about synergistic survival. We humans are part of nature as surely as if we were bound to the earth by roots. We are part of the tapestry that has woven everything together.

With multiple factors affecting our ability to reproduce, disturbingly we do not have to look very far to appreciate the very insidious perpetrator that threatens the survival, of all species on the planet.

However, the chilling discoveries within the animal kingdom have a human correlation – in falling male sperm. Research shows that the culprits are chemicals from our industrialized world that block or mimic the hormone oestrogen![1],[2]

GMOs (GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS) AND YOUR ABILITY TO GET PREGNANT

GMO's and Fertility

I was surprised to find out that many product which we use every day contain genetrically modified crops. For instance, some brands of condiments have GM ingredients, but, of course, it's not marked on the label. Here is an article about how GM foods may affect fertility:
