SHOULD YOU EAT SOY IF YOU'RE TRYING TO CONCEIVE?

Does Soy Help Or Hurt Fertility?

It seems that lately there's been a Soy "backlash". First you hear how good it is for overall health and fertility, then all of a sudden it's bad. I did make Soy part of my diet while I was trying to conceive, and I can tell you from experience, it didn't hurt my fertility. Besides, think of all of the Asian cultures where soy is a staple in their diet...they certainly don't seem to be underpopulated! One argument that critics of soy make is that Asian cultures eat fermented soy like tofu which is healthier.

Most Americans are consuming unfermented soy which is supposedly worse than the fermented variety. Unfermented soy has phytates which may interfere with nutrient absorption. Some of the most popular unfermented soy products are soymilk, tofu, soy nuts and soy meat alternatives. Fermented soy includes miso, soy sauce, tempeh, and natto.

In general, women could benefit from eating more fruits and vegetables. If you're concerned about Soy, eat it in moderation. It's a great source of vegetable protein and there's so many different ways to
get it in your diet.  Protein is a necessary component of hormone production.
Here is an article that I've published before and it addresses soy and fertility:

Our results suggest that a high-soy diet probably won't compromise fertility in women," says researcher Jay Kaplan, PhD, of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, in a news release. The results of the study were presented today at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

50 YEAR OLD WOMAN'S SURPRISE SUCCESSFUL PREGNANCY

Pregnant Naturally at 50

Getting pregnant naturally at or over the age of 40 doesn't surprise most people, but what about getting naturally at 50?

Yes, it happens...I myself had a surprise pregnancy at the age of 49  but I miscarried click here for more on my surprise pregnancy at 49 -getpregnantover40.com). My point here is that it does happen - sometimes when you least expect it. Here is one woman's story:

This baby was a complete surprise. I'd tried to have another baby after my son was born when I was 41, but after four miscarriages I finally gave up hope that I would have another child. My periods stopped abruptly when I moved to the East Coast to take a new teaching job, and I accepted the fact that I had started menopause.

My husband, John, and I were in New York for a weekend workshop when I noticed that my breasts had started swelling and felt tender. "Maybe I'm pregnant," I quipped to John, not really believing it. Then I squeezed a nipple and got a little milky fluid. "Oops! This doesn't feel like menopause!" I said.

I felt very ambivalent about being pregnant again. If the pregnancy continues, I thought, fine; I'll have another baby. If it doesn't, that's fine, too, because I can pursue my new career. After four miscarriages, I was afraid to get very excited. I didn't want to be disappointed again.

I felt a little embarrassed going to the doctor and admitting I was pregnant at my age. Then I asked the important question: "Given my history of miscarriage, do you think I can carry this baby to term?" The doctor was matter-of-fact: "I don't see why not." I asked her about checking my progesterone level to make sure it was high enough to maintain the pregnancy during the first trimester. She didn't seem very concerned. However, I was; so every time I felt a twinge that resembled a cramp, I rubbed natural progesterone cream on my belly. I have no idea if it helped prevent an early miscarriage, but it did ease my mind somewhat.

INFERTILE LABELS: SELF FULFILLING PROPHECY

Infertility:  I Can't Have A Baby, Don't Say It!

Did you ever notice that somehow people seem to live up to their "labels"? I recall back when I was in elementary school, the kids that were labeled "difficult" or "troublemakers" seemed to live up to their reputations. It's almost like they couldn't break free from it.
 See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for trying to conceive with vision boards
 So what does this have to do with getting pregnant? Well...if you're having trouble conceiving, labeling yourself "infertile" may actually make you infertile. Who knows how our brains latch on to things...I know, for me, whenever I know I can do something, I do it. When I think or "know" I can't
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Sacral Chakra Necklace, Love Dream Trust Hope
do something, I can't.

Years ago, when I was engaged to be married, people asked me if we were going to have kids, and I would laugh and say "oh I'm probably infertile....haha". I wonder how much that was a self fufilling prophecy? I never wanted kids when I was younger. As a matter of fact, when I went to my 20 year high school reunion, people would say to me, "you always said you didn't want kids, and here you are, 20 years later, you were true to your word". Little did they know that I was trying to get pregnant at the time. I didn't share that with anyone because it was so out of character for me to want kids!

The moral of the story is, if you've been trying to get pregnant for a while (perhaps a year or longer) try labeling yourself "a future mom". It may change what you manifest in your life.

Here is an article about the power of our words and their connection to what we bring into our life:

Another very important aspect of conscious language is the LAW OF FOCUS. What ever we place our attention on is what we create. It's important to focus on the positive thing we desire rather than the negative thing we want to avoid. For example, never focus on NOT AGING. Focusing on not aging ensures that you will age and quickly. Instead focus on being healthy, vibrant, and youthful.

KOKOPELLI, FERTILITY SYMBOL EXPLAINED

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-jewelry-fertility-gemsThe Kokopelli symbol originated from the Native American culture. It has the flute player with feathers on his head. This is a well known and well accepted symbol for fertility. Kokopelli is thought to carry an unborn babies on his back and gives them to women. Like many fertility symbols, Kokopelli also represents fertility in terms of agriculture. His flute is thought to chase away winter and bring in the warmer weather of spring.  He has the power to grow things... not just in agriculture, but human life as well.  This is why he is considered an aid to women trying to conceive.  Kokopelli is thought to be fun loving, music making and a bit of a trickster....sounds like the true spirit of a child which you want to
bring into your life!

Kokopelli is thought to bring good luck It is believed that his good luck powers came from his power
to create life.  Unmarried women who don't want children are supposed to avoid him. It is said that you should be careful if you sleep at some campgrounds near ancient carvings of Kokopelli because wives and daughters can wind up pregnant if you're not careful!

Kokopelli is so widely accepted as a fertility symbol that one of the major fertility associations had a gala event called the "Kokopelli Ball".  This event honored those professionals, individuals and organizations that further the field of infertility research and treatment.

HOW ACUPRESSURE CAN HELP YOU CONCEIVE

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40, How Acupressure Can Help

I've written before about how acupressure points throughout your body can enhance ovulation and fertility. I did an entire video on acupressure, reflexology and fertility yoga called:, "Fertility Bodywork" (www.getpregnantover40.com), I show how you can perform acupressure (and reflexology)on yourself if you don't want to seek the services of an outside professional.  
Picture:  www.acupressure.com
Here is a site that explains acupressure and acupuncture:

What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments, and is ideal for self-treatment and preventive health care for boosting the immune system. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health. 

Acupuncture & Acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure. When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, detoxify the body for greater health and beauty, and tone facial and back muscles.

In 2014 Susan Devere reconnected with her then "ex-husband" and they decided to give their relationship another chance.  What is amazing is that there were 30 years between their first and second marriage!  They found each other through social media and one thing led to another resulting in their second marriage.  I guess fate intervened and Susan became pregnant for the first time at the age of 48.   This surprise "honeymoon" pregnancy shocked not only her, but the doctor's too!

TCM, HERBS: TOOLS FOR THE BABY MAKER

Traditional Chinese Medicine Helps Women Get Pregnant

I'm always finding success stories about women over 40 who use alternative treatments or traditional chinese medicine to get pregnant. Although I didn't use these methods to conceive my daughter, I certainly think they are a good option for some couples.  I did, however, work on increasing pelvic circulation as I show in my DVD on Fertility Bodywork (www.getpregnantover40.com).
Read more about  Dr Xiao-Ping Zhai:

The first – and as yet only – woman Zhai sent over to the London Fertility Centre successfully conceived on her second try – at the age of 43. Amanda (not her real name) married when she was 40 and started trying immediately with no success. Her baby is due on 1 January next year and she is over the moon.

Acupuncture for fertility (getpregnantover40.com)
"I'm now 44," she says. "I'd had three IUIs and IVF before going to Zhai, and my consultant told me to give up because I was just too old and my eggs were too weak. I saw Zhai throughout 2008 and then we did one IUI in the LFC and I got pregnant but miscarried. The second time, in April, it worked. I was 43. I still can't believe it. It can only be because of her – not only did she improve my egg quality, but the IUI at the LFC, with her in charge, was completely different to any other clinic, where you are aware that, really, you have people around you thinking you're past it and should have a donor egg."


Watching a Zhai consultation is bizarre. She will check the tongue, the pulse, sleep patterns, whether a patient is thirsty, peeing a lot and their bowel movements. Often changes are made to the diet – no sugar, coffee, alcohol, dairy, wheat, spicy foods – and every month a woman is asked to keep a temperature chart.
Slowly, through the use of herbs and acupuncture, Zhai begins to regulate the vital energy, or Qi, that flows through the body. According to this ancient practice, good health and metabolism depend on Qi. As it flows, it provides warmth and distributes body fluids.
Each organ has its own pattern of Qi and each organ is represented on the tongue, which presents Zhai with a kind of map of the body's health. If one organ is not functioning properly, it affects the rest of the body: "It only takes one thing to be wrong to throw the whole system out," she explains.
Common diagnoses seem to be too much liver heat and blood stagnation, damp-heat obstruction in the abdomen, slow blood circulation to the ovaries – you get the picture.
Zhai says she can start seeing changes within three months but will not put a time frame on treatment: "Every woman is different."
The herbs she uses are mostly shipped in from China and made up to her prescriptions, although she is currently looking at manufacturing them in the UK. They include carthamus flower (huang hua) for regulating the flow of Qi to alleviate pain, glossy privet fruit (nu zhen zi) for nourishing the kidney and liver, as well as peach kernel, angelica root and codonopsis root.

SUGAR HARMS SPERM

Trying To Conceive Over 40, Women and Men Should Avoid Too Much Sugar

Where do we begin....sugar is bad on so many levels.
 It has been blamed for everything from the obesity epidemic, and from my standpoint it harms fertility in both women and men.  In women, the insulin resistance can disrupt hormones, and in men, according to this article it can harm semen.  It is unclear whether its the sugar itself that causes problems or if it is the after effects of the sugar that is the culprit (i.e. high blood sugar, obesity, diabetes, etc.) Read more:

SEE ALSO: MALE FACTOR INFERTILITY: INCREASE SPERM COUNT (getpregnantover40.com)


The body also turns surplus sugar into fat and stores it around the vital organs, placing us at risk of liver and heart disease.
Some experts now believe excess sugar is behind the UK’s enormous rise in obesity.

There are also fears that high sugar diets and the spikes of insulin they trigger may fuel the growth of cancerous tumours, while other research has found that sugar may coat semen and damage male fertility.

I THOUGHT I WAS A VICTIM OF INFERTILITY BUT I WASN'T!

You are in charge of your fertility, not the doctors!

 It seems after the "Secret" came out some years back that everyone is talking about the law of attraction...how you manifest in your life what you focus on.  If you label yourself "infertile", guess what? You are going to attract infertility into your life.  This is something that I realized when I was trying to conceive...I needed to refocus my thoughts on how I was going to have a baby and seeing myself pregnant and having a child.  Prior to that, my focus was on how hard it was to get pregnant
and how I was struggling with "infertility".  It's a small shift, but it makes a huge difference.  I also "gave responsibility for my fertility" to the doctors when I started fertility treatments (which all failed and left me with only one fallopian tube after IVF left me with an ectopic pregnancy.

WHO IS SAINT RITA, WHY IS SHE ASSOCIATED WITH FERTILITY?

Even if you did not grow up Catholic, you may still find some comfort in prayer to saints who are
associated with certain causes and conditions.  One of these is Saint Rita. 

Among the other areas, Rita is well-known as a patron of desperate, seemingly impossible causes and situations. This is because she has been involved in so many stages of life – wife, mother, widow, and nun.  Those who are trying to conceive or experiencing miscarriage may truly feel that getting pregnant and having a heathly pregnancy is truly an impossible cause.  But, sometimes the things that
we think are out of our reach can come easily.  I have done many blog posts on women who went through fertility treatments only to fail time and time again.  Then, miraculously, they get pregnancy by surprise.

My ever expanding jewelry line just wasn't complete without a Saint Rita Necklace.  Click the picture below for more information.

PREGNANCY VISUALIZATION, FERTILITY MEDITATION

Meditation and Visualization for Pregnancy

Call it day dreaming, call it visualization, or call it mental creation...the fact of the matter is that our thoughts are things. Before you can attract or create your reality, you need to think it and visualize it. In my Meditation and Visualization CD, I talk about exactly what I visualized to bring my daughter into my life. Sometimes the image was so clear, that I would swear that my baby was in the room with me...this was all before I even conceived her. Give it a try, it's relaxing, uplifting, and best of all, effective!

Here is a site that explains in more detail how visualization works:

Thoughts are endowed with a creative power that molds our life, and attracts what we think about. Thoughts travel from one mind to another, and if they are strong enough, they can be unconsciously picked up by people, who are in a position to help us achieve our desires and goals.

We are part of the Omnipotent Power that has created the universe, and therefore, we participate in the process of creation. Bearing this thought in mind, there is no wonder that thoughts materialize. Stop for a moment and think - You are an indivisible part of the great Universal Power! This means that your thoughts can come true! Not all thoughts of course, but those that are concentrated, well-defined, and often-repeated often.

Thought is energy, especially a concentrated thought laden with emotional energy. Thoughts change the balance of energy around us, and bring changes to the environment in accordance with them.

There is another explanation why visualization brings results. It may come as a surprise to most, but the theory of "Maya" - Illusion, which comes from the eastern philosophies, provides the explanation.

According to the Indian philosophy "Advaita- Vedanta", which is called "Nonduality" in the West, the world is not real, but only an illusion, created by our thoughts. Since most people think and repeat the same or similar thoughts often, focusing their mind and thoughts on their current environment, they create and recreate the same sort of events or circumstances. This process preserves the same "world" and status quo. It is like watching the same film over and over again, but we can change the film by changing our thoughts and visualize different circumstances and life, and in this way create a different "reality". For us, it is a reality, though in fact it is just a dream we call "reality".

WOMAN PREGNANT AT 47 BY SURPRISE, HAS HEALTHY BABY

I love publishing stories of surprise pregnancies in women who are supposedly too old to get pregnant.  Here is a story of one women who was already a grandmother and out of nowhere finds out she is pregnant.  She wasn't necessarily happy about it and even considered termination as many older women do when they find themselves unexpectedly pregnant.  However, she did have a healthy happy baby who is now the light of her life.  Read more:

In truth being mistaken for Lily’s grandmother is my greatest dread so I’m doing everything in my power to make sure it doesn’t happen.
When I go out with her I always straighten my hair and put on a bit of eye make-up.
However feeling self-conscious about my age is a small price to pay for the joy Lily brings me.
It made me so sad to read recently that the abortion rate among women over 35 is rising, possibly because women stop using contraception as they think they’re too old to conceive.
I didn’t plan to have a baby at 47 but Lily is the light of my life.

COUPLE HAS BABY NATURALLY AFTER IVF TRIPLETS

Getting Pregnant Spontaneously After Fertility Treatments

I found an interesting article while reading the BBC news. This particular article is a number of years old, however it's still an interesting story. Apparently, a woman underwent IVF and only wanted two embryos transferred. As it turned out, three were transferred and she had triplets.

See My story about having a baby at 44 without IVF: www.getpregnantover40.com

 She and her husband subsequently sued the clinic because of the financial hardship this put on the

couple. Who would have ever predicted this one? I'm sure those of us who struggle with infertility have a hard time relating to this, but it does raise some questions about all of the things that can go wrong with assisted reproduction. 

Another reason I wanted to post this article is because the woman in the story, after having triplets with IVF (and after receiving a financial settlement from the clinic for transferring three embryos) became pregnant naturally with a fourth child! It just goes to show you, the natural route may deserve a chance - just think of all of the stress and turmoil this couple could have avoided.

10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DHEA FOR FERTILITY, EGG QUALITY

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!

SEAWEED, FOOD FOR FERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40 Help From Seaweed

I have heard about the nutritional benefits of seaweed for years.  It's starting to catch on in this country and has been very popular in Asia.
Here is an article about the benefits of seaweed. If you scroll down to the bottom of the article, it also gives some recipes. Seaweed helps many bodily systems and functions including hormonal balance. Read more:

From the article:

SEAWEED IS A WAY TO GET YOUR JUICES FLOWING

Daily use of seaweed provides optimum nourishment for the hormonal, lymphatic, urinary, and
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle bracelets, two options, click here
nervous systems. The hormonal system uses minerals and trace elements so richly available from seaweed to repair tissue, build new cells, and create hormones responsible for regulating blood pressure, metabolism, fertility, sexuality, and reaction to allergens, to name but a few.


The lymphatic and immune systems are avid partakers of seaweed’s splendid feast of nutrients. Combined with this optimum nourishment, the communication enhancing effects of seaweed further enhance response time and strength in the immune system. This reduces opportunist bacterial and viral infections and helps prolong youth and vitality, not to mention joy and ease in life.

The urinary system gets a special boost from seaweed’s seeming excess of potassium and sodium. Those with cystitis, kidney weakness, gout diabetic kidney ills, and bladder weakness find health / wholeness / holiness with seaweed and Wise Woman Ways.

The nervous system relaxes in the presence of seaweed’s mineral abundance. Seaweed creates an inner environment where nerve signals flow more smoothly and where brain chemicals are produced as needed: to maintain alertness, increase memory, reduce pain, and provide a sense of buoyant bliss.

CALLING ALL ANGELS TO HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

I always say that I said many prayers on the road to parenthood.  Sometimes they were "bargains"...like:
"Listen here God...if you give me a baby, I promise I'll never do such and such again... " and other times I fell back on my faith which certainly has wavered over the years.  However, you may want to try "petitioning your angels".

I started noticing many of the things I was asking for were happening without my needing to take any action at all. My job is to identify what I want, to ask for it, allow it, and to say thank-you when it comes.
I ask for assistance with everything in my life. Each day I awake imagining my spiritual crew ready and anxious to honor me and help me with my requests. I have a section in my day planner I call "Ask my Angels." Each morning I have a meeting with them and write down the things on which I would like them to work. Here is a typical day's request

• Thank you for flowing to me the ideas of what to buy at the grocery store today to make easy, delicious, healthy meals this week.

WOMEN OVER 40 KEEP DESIRE FOR BABY PRIVATE

Pregnancy Over 40 Is a Private Matter

One thing many women over 40 who are trying to conceive have in common is they seem to be very private about their infertility. I even knew one woman who was in her mid 40's who fired her housekeeper for coming at unpredictable times before all the "fertility related" paperword etc. could be put away.

For another article on whether or not to share information about your infertility, visit:www.getpregnantover40.com

Everyone is different and some people are more comfortable sharing information than others, but for me, here are the main reasons I kept my fertility issues under wraps:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

1. The age factor: Society seems to judge "older" women more harshly. Some people view getting
pregnant only for the young. Older women who try to have a baby are judged harshly as if there's some kind of cut off point when getting pregnant is no longer acceptable. That's starting to change as many high profile celebrities and women in general are having babies at an older age.

2. Fertility issues revolve around the most private bodily functions. Getting pregnant is all about egg quality, sperm counts, intercourse, menstrual cycles, etc. It doesn't get more private or personal than that.

3. Failing in private is easier than failing in public: Whether it's getting pregnant or anything else, who needs the public humiliation?

4. Many people think having children later in life is "selfish" and "self-serving" -that's hard to listen to (as if it's anyone else's business). People think that just because you're over 40, you're going to die before your child reaches adulthood. Hey...all I can say is that the average life expectancy for women is almost 80 years old. Older mothers also have a great incentive to keep themselves healthy - and there's some evidence that women who become mothers later in life live longer. So there!

5. Even after my pregnancy was common knowledge, I still received comments like: "I can't imagine having a baby at your age" or "why would anyone want to have a baby over 40?" All I can say about that is most of the people making those comments had kids too young in life. They had a hard time struggling with work, finances, etc. What they don't realize is that although having kids late in life is some work, it's mostly fun - you have so much more time, patience and insight. Because you're a better parent, your child/children are better adjusted, and not constantly acting out to get your attention.

So, the moral of the story is: people who harshly judge come from their own set of beliefs and experiences which are totally different from yours. Keeping your information private is certainly a way of avoiding this negative influence into your life. That's one reason why I recommend a support group. Most of the women are a little older and it's a safe place to let it all out.

TRICLOSAN IN HAND SANITIZERS, SOAP, HARMS FERTILITY

Trying To Get Pregnant? Antibacterial Soap May Be A Problem

It seems Americans have gone a little too far with the whole "cleanliness thing".
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com has more articles on environmental threats to fertility
 I've never been much of a "germaphobe" and neither were my parents. Funny thing is I hardly ever
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard pendant necklace, for motherhood/fertility
got sick as a child other than the occasional cold (and I never had allergies). Maybe our immune systems got the workout they needed by allowing our bodies at least some exposure to germs. Additionally, the whole "antibacterial" soap craze may not only kill germs, but these soaps my be affecting your hormonal balance.
Having a properly functioning thyroid gland is important for fertility - so you may want to switch back to the good old fashioned soap your mom used.
Here's an article that explains more:

"UVic molecular biologist Caren Helbing found while triclosan -- common in soaps, clothing, toys and other items having antibacterial properties -- isn't lethal in small quantities, it can potentially affect the human thyroid gland. The thyroid plays a role in development, body temperature and metabolism.

"For most things, regular soap is just fine. In terms of children's products, they shouldn't have triclosan in them at all," Helbing said in an interview."

EFT: EMOTIONAL ACUPRESSURE FOR FERTILITY

I heard about EFT many years ago when I was searching and researching natural ways to prepare my body for pregnancy.  EFT stands for "Emotional Freedom Technique" and it can be thought of as emotional acupuncture or acupressure.  It is a system of  clearing out emotional blockages that may be preventing you from getting pregnant (it can be used for a number of disorders, not just infertility).
It combines the physical benefits of acupunture with the benefits of cognitive therapy.  Many women who delay childbearing do so for reasons relating to their childhood and their upbringing.  For
picture: renegadehealth.com
example, I had a negative impression of marriage and children for many years and, when I was younger, I would tell people I didn't want children.  It wasn't until I was in my upper 30's that I got married and even thought about getting pregnant.  It's no wonder my body wasn't responding the way it should to getting pregnant or staying pregnant.  I did practice EFT, and I'm sure it helped me get pregnant naturally, even at the age of 44.

PROBIOTICS FOR FERTILITY AND OVERALL HEALTH

Probiotics are Essential for our Health

Guest post by: Jennifer Kays

Most of us are unaware that our health is directly connected to billions of beneficial microorganisms that live in our gastrointestinal tract. These microorganisms help our body break down and absorb food, produce essential nutrients, and help to clean putrefaction and waste. The microorganisms also kill harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast. These microorganisms are beneficial bacteria i.e. flora that make up over two pounds of our body weight. We need to maintain an adequate amount of beneficial bacteria i.e. flora to counteract harmful bacteria\'s potential harm to our health.

SEE ALSO: PROBIOTICS FOR FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)

So why has it become necessary and essential for us to add natural probiotic supplements to our diet?
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Featured: The Combination Fertility Symbol Necklace
Click here for our complete line of fertility necklaces
Our current food production in our country has become that of highly processed foods that are full of chemicals, simple sugars, and carbohydrates. This means that we are eating foods that are essentially without anything living. A very large portion of our agricultural production has used a great amount of pesticides and fertilizers that have almost depleted living soil-based microorganisms that are essential for our health. It has become standard practice to use antibiotics for any ailment that we may be experiencing. Anti means against biotics. In other words, antibiotics kill all the bacteria in our intestinal tract whether it\'s beneficial bacteria or harmful bacteria.. Farm animals are given antibiotics in their feed and we in turn ingest the antibiotics when we eat meat. The chlorine in our water kills our intestinal flora. Alcoholic beverages kill the flora we need and leaves an environment for the growth of harmful bacteria, yeast and fungi. Overuse of intestinal cleaners and colonics for detoxing our intestines removes much of our beneficial flora. The use of radiation and chemotherapy also kills our beneficial intestinal flora.

Our modern food processing, diet, and other practices can leave our digestive system without the essential flora it needs to keep us healthy. As a result, many of us experience acid reflux, depleted immune systems, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, candida, food allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome and perhaps a cancerous condition.

When we use probiotic supplements, the supplements are designed to withstand the acidic condition of our stomach which can kill beneficial bacteria. A probiotic must be resistant to gastric, bile and pancreatic juices in order to reach our colon alive. The probiotics then attach to the wall of our intestine and increase the number of beneficial bacteria and lowers the amount of harmful bacteria.

Probiotics break down hydrocarbons i.e. divides the food we eat into it's most basic components so it can be absorbed by our digestive system therefore increasing the amount of nutrition we need for energy and cellular production and repair. In addition, probiotics get beneath the layer of sludge and accumulation of waste on our intestine walls attach themselves and loosens the waste and decay so that it can be eliminated. The sludge and decay often keep toxin e.g. heavy metals in our bodies. When the waste remains on our intestinal wall it can lead to either constipation or diarrhea. Probiotics relieve constipation or diarrhea giving us a healthy regular elimination of waste. Therefore, probiotics clean our intestinal system removing toxins so eliminating the need for use of colonics and heavy intestinal cleansers.

Probiotics produce important enzymes and increase the availability of vitamins and nutrients, especially B vitamins and vitamin K, lactase, essential fatty acids and calcium. The beneficial bacteria contained and supported by probiotic supplements strengthen our immune system therefore increasing our resistence to viruses, allergies, candida, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Probiotic beneficial bacteria work with tissue and cells to metabolize proteins and eliminate toxins from our bodies. Probiotics help to kill viruses and parasites. Probiotics help to lower cholesterol. Probiotics help prevent yeast and fungal infections and even eliminate them if they are already in existence. Probiotics stimulate B-Lymphocyte and similar natural anti-bodies that help fight infections. Probiotics produce Lactoferrin which is an iron-binding protein needed to obtain iron from our foods and facilitate the absorption of iron that we need for our oxygen carrying blood cells. Probiotics also stimulate our body\'s natural production of alpha-interferon which is essential for proper immune system response and effectiveness.

Since our skin is a major part of our respiratory system and waste elimination system, when our intestinal system is not able to function properly, our skin then is used to eliminate waste from our bodies. This results in skin irritations and disorders. Probiotics increase the waste and toxin elimination from our intestinal system making it unnecessary for our skin to be used for excess waste elimination. Therefore, with the use of probiotics, skin irritation and disorders are prevented and often eliminated if they already exist. Since our skin is no longer being burdened by waste elimination, body odor is eliminated along with bad breath. Not just our skin is cleared of toxic waste when our intestinal system if functioning properly with healthy flora, but also our lungs and other vital organs freed of toxic waste.

It is indeed unfortunate that our modern food production and processing practices have made it necessary for us to use probiotic supplements in order to have a healthy digestive system and to be able to properly eliminate the toxins i.e. chemicals and heavy metals that have become a part of our food production. It is also unfortunate that our over use of antibiotics, synthetic prescription drugs and chemicals such as chlorine, which were supposed to keep us healthy are actually causing us difficulty as they kill the healthy flora that we need in order to live. We need to be aware of these developments take care of ourselves with the use of probiotics. Probiotics are essential for our health.

THE ROLE OF RELIGION IN GETTING PREGNANT

Can Religion Help With Pregnancy Over 40?

As I get older, I see the world less in black and white and more in shades of grey.
See:  www.getpregnantover40.comfor infertility in the bible
 There are so many different belief systems out there. This Newsweek article addresses some different religious viewpoints on fertility treatments as well as whether or not having religious beliefs can help you get pregnant. Read more:

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saints-for-fertility.htm
Click here for more on saints for fertility and getting pregnant
For Orthodox Jewish women, having children is critical to identity. "Not having children is unheard of," explains Michelle Friedman, a New York City psychiatrist who sees many Orthodox Jews in her practice. "The continuity of the covenant is bedrock." That's why so many Orthodox Jewish couples enthusiastically embrace reproductive technology. Mormons support in vitro fertilization but "strongly discourage" the use of donor eggs or sperm. Focus on the Family's James Dobson, in his "Complete Marriage and Family Home Reference Guide," writes that IVF is OK but the use of donor sperm and egg are "morally indefensible from a biblical perspective." For traditional Roman Catholics, IVF is, of course, forbidden. Some deeply religious couples take the Biblical injunction not to "spill seed" literally; for them, clinics can provide special condoms so that sperm can be collected during intercourse. In all of these cases, marriage is a requirement.

Women who sincerely want to bear children on their God's terms, then, face excruciating choices. Can an Orthodox Jewish woman use a donor egg from a non-Jewish donor? Can a conservative Christian adopt frozen embryos, knowing that some of those embryos might die in utero? When Eileen Lyon, who is Catholic, was trying to conceive, her ob-gyn pressured her to try IVF but she said no. Her Catholicism, she says, gave her a sense of the sacredness of her marriage and of her own body, which she was not willing to violate. "You feel kind of brutalized by physicians who dismiss your religious views. If you choose against IVF, it's your fault you will have no baby," says Lyon, who is a history professor at SUNY Fredonia. Lyon finally sought treatment at the Pope Paul VI Institute, a clinic in Nebraska that seeks to help infertile couples without IVF. After surgery for her endometriosis, Lyon had a baby boy. Even though she tried—and failed—to get pregnant a second time, Lyon says she is glad she made the choices she did. "I feel a real sense of contentment," she says. "It's God's will if you have a baby."

Conventional fertility clinics may be dismissive of the Nebraska institute's approach, but one thing appears to be true: a religious or spiritual mind-set may help infertile women. In a study of nearly 200 women published in 2005, psychologist Alice Domar and her colleagues found a high correlation between women who said they were religious and those with low rates of anxiety and depression during fertility treatment. Here, then, is the million-dollar question: does being religious actually help infertile women get pregnant? Domar says it's possible. If religious women have less depression and anxiety, and lower rates of depression and anxiety correlate to higher pregnancy rates, "it stands to reason that religious and spiritual women should have higher pregnancy rates." No wonder Sarah laughed.

HIGH FSH, THE REAL SCOOP

FSH Information

One reason I left the "traditional" medical protocols for getting pregnant is because too much emphasis was put on the proverbial "numbers".
If you're numbers fall outside the "acceptable" range, you're basically told to give up or to consider donor eggs.  FSH stands for "follicle stimulating hormone" - it is what is sounds like: the hormone which helps your follicles develop. Many women live and die by their FSH numbers, but FSH is only one measure of fertility.  As mentioned below, a high FSH reading can be caused by a number of factors.  The number can also fluctuate.  Read more:


Click Here To Read More About Getting Pregnant Naturally With High FSH (getpregnantover40.com)


 High FSH does not preclude pregnancy. High FSH indicates that a woman is likely to be a poor responder to fertility medications. It does not necessarily mean that there aren’t any high quality eggs remaining and that pregnancy is impossible. It MAY mean that it will take a long time for her to become pregnant and that IUI/IVF may or may not increase her chances of pregnancy. If a young woman has prematurely high FSH, this woman MAY or MAY NOT suffer from premature ovarian

failure or premature menopause.

High FSH can be caused by other factors besides DOR (Diminished Ovarian Reserve). Your RE should rule out other potential causes for high FSH before diagnosing you with DOR. Other causes are unusual but should be investigated nonetheless. FSH can rise due to autoimmune disorders, adrenal gland impairment, hereditary dizygotic twinning, discontinuing the use of oral contraceptives (FSH can rise temporarily after extended use of contraceptives), lactation, unilateral ovariectomy, recovery from hypothalmic amenorrhea and excessive smoking.

OVERALL HEALTH AND FERTILITY WITH AYURVEDA

Ayurvedic Tips for Kapha Season

Guest Post By Nicole Perriella

Based on ancient texts called the Vedas, Ayurveda is a comprehensive healthcare system from India. It is known as the "Science of Life." Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of creating and maintaining health through proper diet, daily and seasonal routines, appropriate exercise and lifestyle. Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and utilizes the same techniques like asana, meditation and pranayama. Its focus is on preventing the imbalances that eventually lead to disease. Health and disease have two locations: the physical body and the mind. By taking proactive steps towards perfect health before symptoms appear, we can often prevent illness.

__________
In Ayurveda, an individualized, multidimensional approach is taken based on unique mind-body constitution. The doshas are the three energies that govern all the functions of the body. When a person understands his/her unique mix of the three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), he/she can adjust diet
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Click here for Sacral Chakra Fertility Jewelry
and lifestyle accordingly to maintain balance and achieve optimal health.
Late winter and early spring are considered Kapha Season in Ayurveda. This means that we can adjust our daily lifestyle choices to find balance in body and mind. When one quality is present (for example, cold), we create balance by adding the opposite quality (hot).
Kapha dosha is dominated by the water and earth elements. If you mix water and earth, you create mud. It makes sense that kapha energy is heavy, sticky, lubricated, steady, cold and nurturing. Just like the fertile mud gives rise to beautiful plants and flowers, kapha energy stabilizes us for growth.
6 Tips for Kapha Season
1. Exercise every day! This is especially important for people with a Kapha-dominant constitution. Walking, swimming, biking, running and yoga are all good choices. Since we remove ama (toxins) through movement and sweat, this one tip will make a huge difference.
2. Add some spice to your life. Sprinkle cardamom, wasabi, cayenne, ginger, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, pepper and mustard seed on your food to add heat and spark agni, the all-important digestive fire. Foods that are dry, warm and spicy clear congestion and keep things moving.
3. Sip warm water. Warm foods and drinks are easier to digest and help keep us regular. Consider warm water with 1/4 tsp cayenne powder, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 1 tsp raw honey for a detoxifying tea.

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com) 

4. Breath freely by using a neti-pot. Since Kapha dominates the chest and upper stomach regions of the body, it's wet and sticky nature causes mucus to get stuck. The neti-pot helps flush out mucus and seasonal allergens.
5. Favor light fruits like apples, pears, pomegranates and apricots. Avoid heavy fruits like bananas, avocado, pineapple, orange, dates and figs.
6. Declutter! Kapha-dominate people tend to collect things. This type of material "congestion" weighs us down. Instead, spend a few minutes each day recycling papers, donating clothes or cleaning things up. It will help you feel free and light in mind and body.
Incorporate these tips to breathe freely and enjoy balance during this beautiful season.

HOW EARTHING "GROUNDS" YOUR 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]
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!

A LITTLE KISS MAY BE ALL YOU NEED TO GET PREGNANT

When I was in college, KISS meant, "keep it simple stupid".  But for now, it's going to mean something different.  I never knew there was such a thing as a KISS gene. Well, it's not exactly what you think. Apparently there is substance called kisspeptin which comes from the KISS gene.

Kisspeptin is a product of the KISS-1 gene and is a key regulator of reproductive function. Animals and humans lacking kisspeptin function do not go through puberty and remain sexually immature.

Dr Waljit Dhillo and colleagues have already shown that kisspeptin treatment leads to the production of sex hormones in fertile women.

Now, they have extended their research to look at the effects of kisspeptin in women whose periods have stopped due to a hormone imbalance.

ONE CHRISTIAN WOMAN'S VIEW ON DIFFICULTY GETTING PREGNANT

Many of my readers turn to their faith when they are struggling with infertility.  I know from my struggle with trying to get pregnant for 6 years that it can take a toll on your marriage.  Even though I can't claim to be a "religious" person, I did say many prayers on the road to parenthood. 
For more articles on getting pregnant over 40 or any age, visit: www.getpregnantover40.com 
 Fortunately it all worked out in the end, but if you are Christians struggling with infertility, this article may be helpful:

Infertility: Staying In Agreement With Your Spouse

Author:Mardie Caldwell
'Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7,8

Prayer is the lifeline of a believer when he or she is pulled by the currents of trials and tribulations. When prayer becomes as natural as the air we breathe, it opens up opportunities for God to answer our prayers. Mind you, His answers may not be the ones we specifically seek, but there is always the promise of an answer.
See also: infertility-in-the-bible (www.getpregnantover40.com)

If you are a couple dealing with infertility, these may be times of frustration, anger, and hopelessness. According to medical terms, a couple is infertile after at least a year of unprotected sex. For most couples, once this dreaded deadline passes, it is the beginning of innumerable medical tests and painful poking and prodding. When they eventually learn that they have remote chances of conceiving naturally, it takes them on an emotional and spiritual rollercoaster ride. The stress of whether to go in for fertility treatments, adoption, or simply wait on God for a miracle can be too much to bear, even for a Christian couple.
Couples struggling with infertility go through a whole range of emotions. But, the ones that weigh in the most are feelings of being abandoned by God and a sense of incompleteness. If you relate to this problem, then I want you to know that God has not abandoned you. Being \'childless\' does not make you any less in the eyes of your Maker.

If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on the path to take (adoption or assisted reproduction), it may do you a world of good to surrender your future to God\'s perfect will. As we see in Mathew 7: 7-8, continuous prayer leads to receiving, finding, and opening of doors of opportunities. The Bible declares that when two or more of God\'s children come together in His name, He is in their midst. Spend time everyday in prayer as a couple. Welcome God into your marriage, ask Him to strengthen you as a couple during this difficult time, seek His wisdom and will concerning your options, and knock on the doors of Heaven until it opens up its blessings for you and your spouse.

I worked with Lisa and Thomas many years ago through Lifetime Adoption Center, as they were in deep disagreement over the route to build their family.  Lisa had endured seven unsuccessful attempts at intra-uterine insemination and she was ready to start adoption.  Thomas came from a large Italian family that valued children and family heritage. 

http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-rita-for-fertility.htm
Click here for more on Saint Rita and Saint Gerard for Fertility, Pregnancy
When speaking with them at length, it became very clear that something had to give.  Lisa was exhausted of the shots, the attempts, and the monthly failure.  Thomas feared that an adopted child would not be readily accepted in his family since the true Italian bloodline would not be preserved.  We prayed together, asking that God would give Lisa strength if she was to continue, Thomas courage if he decided to speak with his family about adoption, and both of them wisdom to understand that in following God\'s perfect plan, the decision they made would be blessed by Him.

Today, they have a beautiful 6-year-old daughter, placed in their arms the day of her birth.  She is wholly and lovingly accepted into Thomas\' proud, Italian family as God intended. 
The Word of God declares children to be a material and spiritual blessing: they are to take care of us in our old age and are our heritage. God will never deny you this blessing. It is His desire that every one of His child bears fruit, physically and spiritually. As a Christian couple, I urge you to believe that God has a definite plan for your parenthood and that He is in control, even though your life seems to be in turmoil. Let prayer unite you in all the areas where you are not in agreement with your
spouse, so that you can make godly decisions for your future.

MUSTARD: SUPERNUTRITIOUS FERTILITY CONDIMENT!

I consider mustard to be the hero of condiments.  Why is mustard good for your health and fertility?  Mustard comes from the seeds of the mustard plant which is one of the superstar cruciferous vegetables. 
Not only is mustard extremely healthy, but you can eat a lot of it, guilt free.  It is extremely low in calories and it adds a lot of tangy flavor to your food.  So what are the benefits of eating mustard if you are trying to conceive?

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY AND GETTING PREGNANT (getpregnantover40.com) 

  • Mustard it high in phytonutrients which help regulate hormones.

  • Mustard is high in Selenium which  has been found in large healthy follicles and it has been associated with a decreased risk of misarriage.
  •  Mustard is high in Magnesium. Magnesium supplementation has been shown to help previously infertile women succeed in getting pregnant.  The women in one study received supplemental magnesium which normalized their red cell magnesium levels and helped with fertility
  •  Mustard is a source of omega 3 fatty acids which can help with hormone production.

I've actually started adding some mustard to my balsamic vinegar salad dressing (I mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar and mustard with some salt and pepper).  It's really delicious and it adds a creamy texture to the dressing.  You can also eat "mustard greens"  See how to prepare greens here (getpregnantover40.com)

HOW CAN INOSITOL HELP YOU CONCEIVE?

Getting Pregnant With The Help Of Inositol

I've been hearing more and more about inositol for female fertility. Inositol or sometimes called myo-inositol can help with insulin resistance and it is one of the B vitamins. It can help with ovulatory disorders and help women who have stopped getting their periods as a result. Here is an

excerpt from a study done on women who took myo-inositol
 from: nih.gov:

"the number of mature oocytes was significantly increased in the myo-inositol group compared to D-chiro-inositol. Concurrently, the number of immature oocytes decreased in myo-inositol treated patients. Furthermore, the myo-inositol-treated group showed an increase in the mean number of top quality embryos and in the total number of pregnancies compared to the D-chiro-inositol-treated group.
