GREENS TO CLEANSE AND IMPROVE FERTILTY

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40 Helped With A Fertility Detox Green Cleanse

I'm sure most people feel like I do after a big holiday meal.  For most people, the holidays don't just involve one meal, but weeks of eating sweets, meals out and probably a lack of exercise.
Your whole body feels sluggish, tired and heavy. You might want to try a green cleanse (greens are great for fertility).

THANKSGIVING MEAL MAY HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

  • Turkey:  lean turkey meat is a great source of protein and iron.  Some protein is needed in your diet to help your body manufacture high quality eggs.  Iron  deficiency has been associated with ovulation problems and meat sources like turkey are the easiest for your body to absorb.

  • Sweet potatoes:  Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin C, B, and vitamin B6. These antioxidants protect against cell damage.  They have a positive affect on blood sugar and they are high in fiber which helps to eliminate toxins.  Read more about sweet potatoes here.

  • Leafy Green Salad or Cooked Greens -
Kale is a superfood which is great for overall health. It's high in a number of vitamins and minerals which help to detoxify the body. Kale is also a great source of iron and calcium which is important for follicular development. Kale can help reduce inflammation in the body.
Collard greens are also a nutritional powerhouse. They are high in fiber and essential nutrients all of which are good for fertility and hormone regulation.

  • Nuts:

Nuts may not be part of the main course, but frequently nuts are  part of the appetizer portion of the meal.  If you can, eat non-roasted nuts as these have the natural beneficial oils perserved.  Almonds and walnuts are a great source of the good fats which help with hormone regulation and walnuts are helpful for women with PCOS

  • Pumpkin Pie:

Okay, I know it's probably going to have some fat and sugar, but pumkins are a fertility power house. Pumpkins are a great source of B vitamins and folate which can help prevent birth defects.  Pumpkins are also a source of calcium and iron.  If you can preserve and eat the pumpkin seeds, even better!

  • Pumpkin seeds: These are great for mens fertility as they are high in zinc and essential fatty acids

Have a wonderful, healthy and safe holiday!

VISUALIZATION AND GETTING PREGNANT

Trying To Conceive Over 40 - Pregnancy Over 40

One of the most frustrating things about trying to conceive month after month is that you can't really see what's going on. Let's face it, most of us don't have a high powered microscope hanging around our house - and even if we did, how on earth would we capture all the events involved with conception...Did the sperm meet the egg? Did the embryo find it's way down the fallopian tube? Did the embryo find a good spot to implant? If it did implant, is it getting the right mix of hormones and nutrients? It goes on and on...if you think about it, it's a miracle anyone gets pregnant.

So how do you deal with moving blindly through the getting pregnant maze? Well...here's how I dealt with it. I made my own step by step, frame by frame story board in my mind. That's what I call visualization. I would picture the sperm meeting the egg, the egg moving effortlessly through the fallopian tube (I only had one), I would visualize a little fairy (similar to Tinkerbell) helping the egg attach and so on. Sound crazy? Maybe, but all I can say is that it works. I truly believe that your mind has the ability to control actual physical processes in your body. At least for me, the best way to communicate to my body through my mind was with the use of pictures.

It's true, a picture is worth a thousand words and it's a heck of a lot easier than trying to use a microscope.

I received so many inquiries about visualization, that I developed my CD on guided visualization and meditation. Learn more here:

Meditation and Visualization CD (www.getpregnantover40.com)

Whether or not you think this CD would be helpful, you should develop your own method of visualizing what you want. Not only does it help you to attract what you want into your life, it can also be a great stress management tool. It's hard to be in a bad mood when you think about your soon to be baby.

PREGNANT NATURALLY AFTER 7 FAILED IVF'S


Wow, what a story. This article talks about a woman who tried to get pregnant for 14 years.
She had numerous failed IVF's and even tried surrogates. Imagine the time, money, and emotional turmoil she went through only to get pregnant naturally.

25% Of Women With Failed IVF Go On To Get Pregnant Naturally

 She did have complications with her pregnancy, but I wonder how much sooner she may have gotten pregnant had she not been through all the rigors of fertility treatments.  Last Friday, I posted an article about how 25% of women failing IVF go on to have natural pregnancies.  Here's another one... read more:

From the article:
Lucy Fitzpatrick gave birth to Louis on her 40th birthday after seven attempts at IVF, a twin miscarriage and two tries at using surrogates. She finally became pregnant naturally, but then developed serious complications and gave birth prematurely.
The property developer from central London, who is now 47, was helped to have her son by the research centre at St Thomas' Hospital, funded by baby charity Tommy's. Last week, she returned with Louis, seven, to thank its head of obstetrics Professor Andy Shennan and his team.
In an interview with the Standard, Mrs Fitzpatrick, who conceived Louis naturally, called for more funding for research into preventing complications during pregnancy.

NONSTICK COOKWARE MAY CONTRIBUTE TO IINFERTILITY

 The Dangers Of Nonstick Cookware

I recently replaced much of my cookware to the non-stick variety. Yes, it's somewhat expensive, but I've heard so much about the dangers of nonstick cookware that it may be worth the investment in something safer.
I know the coated pans are easy to clean, readily available and hard to give up.
However, this article talks about how some non-stick chemicals may affect your fertility:

SEE ALSO: FERTILITY DETOXIFICATION (getpregnantover40.com)

A provocative new study finds that women who have trouble getting pregnant are more likely to have high concentrations of certain nonstick-chemical pollutants circulating in their blood than are those who become pregnant within the first month of trying. The suspect compounds — generally known as PFOA and PFOS — are the original primary constituents of Teflon and Scotchguard products.

Since the potential toxicity of certain perfluorinated chemicals began to emerge about a decade ago, formulations of both commercial nonstick-product lines have been reengineered to avoid reliance on PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate). Nonetheless, plenty of both compounds still can be found in air, water and the bodies of people throughout the developed world. Indeed, babies are usually born carrying traces of both compounds — and their chemical kin — supplied by their moms’ blood.

Over the past two years, Chunyuan Fei of the University of California, Los Angeles, and her colleagues have linked elevated concentrations of both PFOA and PFOS in mom with a decreased likelihood that her baby or toddler would meet early developmental milestones — such as being able to sit or walk without support or to retrieve something (such as a toy or book) when asked.

FERTILE WINDOW HARD TO FIND

Pregnancy Over 40, You May Be More Fertile Throughout The Month

You Ovulate on Day 14, right?
 Maybe, maybe not. Here's a very interesting article which happens to be written for women trying to avoid pregnancy, but the information may be very helpful if you're TTC:

SEE ALSO: WHY FERTILITY CHARTING AND BBT MAY NOT WORK (getpregnantover40.com)

From the article:

"Researchers showed that 2% of women started their fertile window by day four of their menstrual cycle, and 17% by day seven. Day one of the menstrual cycle is the day that menstruation begins. More than 70% of women were in their fertile window before day 10 or after day 17. Women who regarded their menstrual cycles as "regular" had a 1 to 6 percent probability of being fertile even on the day that their next period was expected to begin. This leaves few "safe" days for natural birth control methods such as the "rhythm method." Women who participated in the study were required to provide daily urine samples that were tested for estrogen and progesterone. A sudden change in these hormones marks the occurrence of ovulation. This test was used to identify ovulation days during 696 menstrual cycles.

Previous reports by Dr. Wilcox and colleagues had shown that the fertile window spans six days and ended on the day of ovulation; however the new report found that even women whose menstrual cycles are normally regular can experience sporadic ovulation. Late ovulation causes 4 to 6 percent of women to potentially be fertile during the fifth week of their cycles--more than 28 days after menstruation last started."

STORIES OF WOMEN IN MID 40'S GETTING PREGNANT NATURALLY

Wow, I could have written this article myself!  It is called, "IVF, and the great lie about fertility in the over 40's".  It gives stories of women who were "hopelessly infertile" and told they were unable to have children (and many had undergone failed IVF's) only to conceive naturally and have a baby!

From the article:

SEE ALSO: WOMEN WHO CONCEIVED OVER 50 NATURALLY (getpregnantover40.com)


What if women of 38 and over were needlessly spending thousands of pounds on IVF to get pregnant? Or if women who felt their families were already complete were having unwanted pregnancies because of the mistaken belief that their chances of conceiving were negligible?
Recent figures from the Office for National Statistics show that live births to mothers aged 40 and over have nearly doubled in the past decade, and the Mail revealed that the number of women having abortions in their 40s has risen by almost a third in ten years.

CAN LAUGHING HELP YOU CONCEIVE?



Much has been written about the healing power of laughter and it can be an important factor in changing your mindset and lowering your resistance.  Laughter can lower your blood pressure, reduce stress (and stress hormones), increase endorphins (natural painkillers) and strengthen the immune system.    Best of all it’s free and fun! 

Has laughter ever been studied in regards to fertility? There was actually a study done in Israel on women undergoing IVF.   Half of them were entertained by a clown for about 15 minutes after the embryos were transferred into their wombs.  The routine included jokes, tricks, and magic and was performed on a one-to-one basis.  The study sample included 219 patients (110 in the intervention group and 109 in the control group). There were no significant differences between the groups regarding age. The pregnancy rate in the intervention group was 36.4%, compared with 20.2% in the control group. Researchers thought “laughter may have an effect on the embryo-uterine interplay through neuroendocrine pathways or non-ovarian stress reduction, augmenting uterine receptivity”.[1]

SEE ALSO: HOW STRESS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO MISCARRIAGE AND INFERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)


Although this study was done on women undergoing IVF, I can’t help but believe that the beneficial effect of laughter can help women who are trying to conceive naturally too.
How can you laugh at a time like this?  You just have to figure out what tickles your funny bone.  For me, watching the television show where people send in their silly home videos was a guaranteed laugh.  Sometimes I’d have tears running down my face I would laugh so hard.  Try it!  I didn’t always feel like laughing, but I’d start watching and I couldn’t contain myself!  Many cable channels play the reruns at all hours and you can find almost anything online, so it’s pretty easy to find at least one episode per day.  It’s those belly laughs that make you cry that are especially healing and cathartic.

HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

Can Acupuncture Help You Conceive?

If you research acupuncture, you will find that scientifically, no one is really sure how it works. In Chinese medicine, it is believed that we have “meridians” which run through our bodies creating a flow of energy.
 If this energy is blocked, it can cause a number of problems. Acupuncture uses small needles which stimulate certain points on the body which help the energy flow again through these meridians.
It is believed that acupuncture can cause the release of endorphins and some research suggests that it can stimulate parts of the brain corresponding to the acupuncture points where the needles are inserted.

New born babies have 78%. By the age of one that drops to about 65%. Adult men have around 60% water and women, who in general have a higher fat content, about 55%. These percentages can vary depending on age, weight and health issues.

So let’s consider the importance of water for your fertility.
