SEAWEED: SUPERFOOD FOR FERTILITY AND HEALTH

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40 Help From Seaweed

I've heard for many years that seaweed is one of those superfoods that isn't really understood that much in this country.  It can improve fertility in many ways.  Some women have undiagnosed thyroid issues which are made worse by stress.  Seaweed can help with thyroid imbalances with its iodine content. It is also high in fiber which can help remove excess estrogen which can be the culprit in many hormonal imbalances.  It can also help with PCOS because it helps to regulate blood sugar.  Read more:

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.

PREGNANT AT 45, WOMAN SHOCKED BUT DOESN'T CONSIDER IT A MIRACLE

Here is a great article about an author who got pregnant by surprise just when she had given up the idea of having more children.  The article goes on to say that, yes, it may be somewhat unusual for a woman to have a baby in her 40's, but it certainly is not a medical miracle.  Women frequently can and do become pregnant naturally in their 40's.  Read more:

Author Kate Kerrigan had her second son when she was 45, eight years after she gave birth to her first son. “I had my first child when I was 37 and I was very much thinking this was the last gas station before the desert. I was in my mid-30s before I met a man willing to marry me. By that time I was in a panic to get pregnant. I had a lot of anxiety about leaving it too late.

“We had Leo when I was 37 and we were thrilled and started immediately to try again but we had no luck and I thought well, we'll just leave it at one. When I was 45, I got pregnant again. I thought I was menopausal and had gained a little weight. I did the test as a dare because my friend mentioned my thick ankles. When it came up positive it was a shock.”

People’s attitudes were surprising, says Kate. “People kept telling me how great I was — aren’t you great! — as if this was some kind of marathon achievement or as if I was a medical freak. I was much clearer about what I wanted, I had so much more confidence and I knew what I wanted for my birth plan.

VIRUS FOUND IN 43% OF UNEXPLAINED INFERTILITY CASES

 I have a page on my website (getpregnantover40.com) devoted to infections that cause infertility.  I am really flabbergasted at the number of cases of infertility that could be resolved by clearing up an underlying infection.  This article is about a new discovery of a virus which is a member of the herpes family that, in one study, was found in 43% of women with unexplained infertility.  Read more:

 From the article:

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/infections-causing-infertility.htm
Read more on infections causing infertility
The little-known member of the human herpesvirus family called HHV-6A infects the lining of the uterus in 43 percent of women with unexplained infertility but cannot be found in that of fertile women, researchers have discovered. The study also reported that the infection is exacerbated by hormone estradiol. Estradiol fluctuates with the menstrual cycle. High levels may trigger an active infection localized in the uterus.
 The study also found that the response of the immune system to the virus may contribute to making the uterus less hospitable to a fertilized egg. The virus seems to activate immune cells called natural killer cells in the uterus, and lead those cells to produce chemicals called cytokines. Cytokines are tools the immune system uses to orchestrate an attack on a foreign invader, like a virus. However, the activated immune system cells and abnormal levels of certain cytokines may make it harder for a fertilized egg to lodge in the uterus, and grow into a baby.

DIET AND CORTISOL REDUCTION, KEYS TO HEALTHY PREGNANCY

Having A Baby Over 40

I'm thoroughly convinced that quitting my pressure cooker corporate job what absolutely critical to my successful conception and pregnancy.

 Healthy diets and staying in control of stress doesn't just help you conceive, it helps create a healthy baby. According to this article, your diet deficiencies and stress hormones can have long-term affects on the health of your child. Read more:

But one of the most important- and to some degree unavoidable- environmental variables is stress. This is commonly studied using sheep, as the lamb normally grows to the same size as a human baby in a relatively long pregnancy, and the development of major organs including the heart and brain is very similar in humans and sheep. To simulate stress in pregnancy, Professor Wintour's team exposed sheep early in their pregnancy to a stress hormone, cortisol, for a short duration. The offspring were later found to develop high blood pressure from four months after birth, which increased in severity
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle Bracelet in two varieties, rose quarz or amethyst
as they aged. Kidney development was also impaired. Dr. Julie Quinlivan, working with researchers at the University of Western Australia, found that injecting sheep with stress hormones later in their pregnancies and on a number of occasions produced different effects, including the later development of insulin resistance and diabetes. This suggests that the timing of stressful insults can have varying outcomes.


The duration of exposure to stress is also crucial. Dr. Quinlivan notes, "Basically, if you have a single exposure to stress hormones, the body is very resilient. But if you have repeated exposure to stress, it affects the number of brain cells in a fetus' brain, the growth of the baby, and the development of the thyroid and the immune system, so it has multiple effects". In addition to physical effects such as hypertension or diabetes, abnormal concentrations of cortisol in-utero can also create psychological syndromes. Studies have found that infants exposed to elevated levels of cortisol in the womb- often because their mother was under stress or depressed herself- are at increased risk of depressive disorders throughout childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Such individuals also commonly exhibit cognitive delays and long-term behavioral dysfunction...

 ...So what does all this mean to the woman who is pregnant or hoping to become so? Put simply, she should eat well not just from the time the pregnancy is confirmed, but ideally also in the months leading up to conception, so as to avoid any potential deficiencies at a time when the fetus is particularly vulnerable. Such a diet should include lots of fruit, vegetables, bread and cereals, moderate amounts of dairy foods and lean meats, and small quantities of foods high in sugar, salt and fat. While adequate Vitamin A is essential for kidney development as noted above, supplements of this vitamin are not recommended without medical supervision, as these may cause birth deformities. Instead, try increasing the consumption of milk, eggs, green leafy vegetables and fruit. Two servings of fish per week are also recommended for their omega-3 acids, while adequate Vitamin D can be obtained from a daily ten minute exposure of the lower arms and legs to sunshine (though avoid the hours between 11am and 3pm). Iron stores can be boosted by eating red meat in conjunction with foods that enhance iron absorption, such as oranges, broccoli or potatoes.

FERTILE CERVICAL MUCUS, ONE MUST HAVE FOR CONCEPTION

Improving cervical mucus to get pregnant

I've previously talked about something called hostile cervical mucus (when your body is not sperm friendly)  So, how do you improve the quality of your cervical mucus if you're trying to conceive? I was told, years ago after a post-coital test, that too many sperm had not survived.  The conclusion was that my cervical mucus was not sperm friendly.  I was able to fix this on my own since I eventually got pregnant naturally. Here is an article that talks about foods and supplements and their

HORMONAL IMBALANCE UNDERLYING SOME MISCARRIAGES

Hormone Imbalance and Recurrent Miscarriage

I've always described getting pregnant as a synchronistic series of events like an orchestra where every instrument must play on cue. This article explains how hormonal imbalance can throw everything off just a bit causing a miscarriage when you conceive. There are a number of things that can throw hormones out of whack including body weight, stress, poor diet and so on.

From the article:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Tree of Life Fertility Bracelet
The simplest way of thinking about this in terms of its negative effects on a successful pregnancy is that the abnormal cycles indicate that the patient is either not ovulating at the appropriate time (around day 14, counting from the first day of the last period) or, if she is, she has inappropriate production or action (in terms of timing, amount, or effect) of the hormone progesterone that is made by the ovary (the corpus luteum at the site from which the egg was hatched) during the second half of the menstrual cycle and the early weeks of pregnancy.
__________
  SEE ALSO: NATURAL WAYS TO INCREASE PROGESTERONE (getpregnantover40.com)
 __________

 Unusually long cycles usually reflect a delay in ovulation and are more common in women with thyroid disorders, excess amounts of the pituitary hormone prolactin (hyperprolactinemia) from any cause, and women who have ‘polycystic ovary syndrome’ that may be accompanied by hyperandrogenemia (increased levels of male hormones), elevated levels of luteinizing hormone (LH, another pituitary hormone that stimulates androgen production in the ovary), and insulin resistance. Unusually short cycles usually indicate an inadequate progesterone effect on the endometrium (often called “luteal phase defects’) and may result from too little progesterone production or from an endometrium that is less responsive to the hormone..

FERTILITY DRUGS LINKED TO THYROID CANCER

Fertility Drugs and Thyroid Cancer

Many articles have come out over the years about whether or not fertility drugs may lead to ovarian cancer.

The latest research says that they don't (I'm still a little worried though). However, there is more research now that Clomid and progesterone supplementation may double the risk of thyroid cancer. I had both of these treatments before I started trying naturally. Apparently, these cancers don't show up for seven years or more after treatment. I realize, doctors probably didn't know these risks at the time, but I wish someone would have warned me. So if you're considering drug treatment for fertility issues, ask your doctor about ALL the risks involved, even the ones that don't show up for years after the fact. Read more:

risk of cancer.

The 23,000 women who take clomiphene every year have twice the chance of developing thyroid cancer, a study suggests.

The drug is the most commonly used fertility treatment in Britain.

It is often given to 'kick-start' ovaries before before women start more invasive procedures such as IVF.

The study also warns that the hormonal treatment progesterone, used to improve a woman's chances of having a baby under IVF, may raise the risk of thyroid cancer by up to ten times. However, more research is needed to confirm this.

The study of more than 54,000 women, published in the medical journal Human Reproduction, last night led to calls for better regulation of fertility drugs.

Researchers from Copenhagen University Hospital found 29 cases of thyroid cancer among women aged 28 to 55, with most diagnoses taking place seven years after fertility treatment.

CLEFT LIP REDUCED WITH FOLIC ACID

The importance of folic acid in women in their childbearing years has been well publicized for the prevention of neural tube defects.
 However, this article also talks about how folic acid may prevent cleft lip. Read more:

Folic acid is a B vitamin found in leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, beans, and whole grains. It can also be taken as a vitamin supplement, and it is added to flour and other fortified foods. The recommended daily dietary allowance for folate for adults is 400 micrograms or 0.4 mg. The new study was conducted in Norway, which has one of the highest rates of facial clefts in Europe and does not allow foods to be fortified with folic acid.

The researchers examined the association between facial clefts and mothers' intake of folic acid supplements, multivitamins, and folates in diet. The researchers found that folic acid supplementation of 400 micrograms or more per day reduced the risk of isolated cleft lip with or without cleft palate by one-third, but had no apparent effect on the risk of cleft palate alone. "Folic acid deficiency causes facial clefts in laboratory animals, so we had a good reason to focus on folic acid in our clefts study," said Wilcox. "It was one of our main hypotheses."

MACA, FOOD FOR FERTILITY, GETTING PREGNANT

Maca has come up in my reading for many years.  It is an interesting root which many women swear by to help them with ovulation and conception. It also reportedly has benefits for men.  Maca is a cruciferous vegetable which would put it in the same category as broccoli, cabbage, kale and all of those super nutritious foods.  The taste of it is described as "earthy and nutty".  Read more:

Maca is a type of root crop, native to the Andes Mountains of Peru. The Peruvian natives have used Maca root for hundreds of years for a number of different purposes. Fighting infertility with Maca is a practice that goes back a long time and has a record of results. 

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY, DIET TO GET PREGNANT (GETPREGNANTOVER40.COM) 


How Maca Root Fights Infertility
Both men and women can fight infertility with Maca. For women, Maca can help to regulate imbalances in some of those important fertility hormones. It can also correct or at least mitigate some of the hormone dysfunction that comes with menopause.
For men, Maca can help to increase sperm count. As you probably know by now, a low sperm count is the leading cause of infertility in men. Maca can also help with sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to move forward toward the egg).
A Natural Approach to Fertility
One of the most attractive things about Maca is that it doesn’t rely on artificial manipulation of the body’s hormones to work. It actually doesn’t even contain any plant hormones. Instead, it uses plant sterols to trigger your body into producing the right amount of hormones so as to maximize fertility.
Other Health Benefits
On top of fighting infertility, Maca has been used for a number of other health purposes. People have used it to reduce stress, to help with hormone imbalances that aren’t fertility-related, to strengthen bones and teeth and to help control the symptoms of menopause.

ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA CAN HARM YOUR ABILITY TO GET PREGNANT

The adrenal glands are critical for hormone production and fertility.  They are located above the kidneys I have a page on my website devoted to a condition called "Adrenal Fatigue" (click here to read about this condition at getpregnantover40.com).  But there is another condition involving the adrenal glands called "Adrenal Hyperplasia".  It can be treated, but it is frequently misdiagnosed as precocious puberty (where girls go through puberty at an early age.)  Read more:

of androgens. In women it can interfere with ovulation; in men it can cause low sperm count. In addition, it can lead to short stature, body odor, acne, irregular menstruation and the excessive hair growth called hirsutism.

 In younger patients, the disease is often mistaken for precocious puberty. “A lot of reports are saying the age of onset of puberty is beginning to get lower, so a lot of doctors dismiss the symptoms of early puberty,” said Suzanne Levy, acting executive director of the Cares Foundation, a research and advocacy organization for people with C.A.H.

ZINC: A MUST HAVE FOR GETTING PREGNANT

Zinc Produces Superior Eggs for Healthier Children

Several new studies show how important zinc is to reproductive health. These studies indicate that Zinc may aid in the creation of a superior-quality egg that is more likely to be fertilized and produce a healthy child, as well as improve the future cardiovascular health of your child.

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

Researchers measured the concentration of zinc and other minerals in a maturing egg and found that zinc was by far the most important nutrient relating to the process of producing a good egg that will make a healthy embryo. In fact, eggs require a 50% surge in zinc uptake before it can be fertilized. No zinc, no baby.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
See our complete line of Fertility Bracelets, click here
"Zinc helps the egg exit from a holding pattern to its final critical stage of development," said O'Halloran, the Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern. "It's on the knife's edge of becoming a new life form or becoming a cell that dies. It only has 24 hours. Zinc seems to be a key switch that helps control
whether the egg moves forward in its development stage."
For years I have given zinc to women who said they had trouble getting pregnant, with a typical "thank you" phone call several months later. Here is some science that proves the point.
Zinc works in hundreds of enzymes relating to growth and metabolism. While a woman may have enough zinc to get pregnant a very important question is: Does she have adequate zinc to give her child a best chance at future health? Another new study shows the extreme importance of this topic.
In this animal study researchers tested the effects of zinc deficiency during pregnancy and lactation on the future health of kidneys and blood pressure regulation. They found that a lack of zinc in these earlier phases of life caused high triglycerides, high blood pressure, and poor kidney function later in life. While restoring zinc status later in life helped reduce triglycerides it could not fully correct the problems with poor kidney function that resulted in higher blood pressure.

This study shows that zinc adequacy during pregnancy and lactation helps optimize the growth and function of kidneys. If a person fails to take advantage of this during development, the kidneys will be a weak spot in metabolism as a person grows older, leading to high blood pressure and higher rates of kidney disease.
On the flip side of this coin, an earlier study showed that giving pregnant women 15 mg of zinc per day resulted in children who had better muscle development between ages 4 months and 12 months. This indicated that zinc adequacy during pregnancy has a profound affect on the thriving ability of an infant.
Another animal study showed that zinc supplementation was able to guard against the adverse effects of alcohol during pregnancy, including still births and mortality in early life. This is a significant finding. Similarly, there is another study that illustrates how zinc protects against damage to the digestive tract from alcohol. This is especially important since a young woman who is consuming alcohol may not know she is pregnant.
Collectively these studies point to the extreme importance of zinc adequacy before, during, and following pregnancy. Its use could have a profound effect on the future health of our nation.

CAN EVENING PRIMROSE OIL HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/evening-primrose-oil-for-fertility.htm
I've heard about Evening Primrose Oil for year to treat a number of conditions like eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain, menopause symptoms, and more. It contains the pain relieving compound phenylalanine as well.
By interfering with the production of inflammatory prostaglandins released during a woman's period,
the GLA in evening primrose oil can help to lessen menstrual cramps. It is also thought to help with fertility especially in improving cervical mucus which is essential if you want the sperm to be able to swim efficiently to the egg.
For men, EPO promotes blood flow.  The GLA in evening primrose oil can help treat a primary cause of male impotence; compromised circulation leading to impaired penile blood flow.

HIGH RATE OF NATURAL CONCEPTION AFTER IVF

If you keep hearing about women and couples getting pregnant naturally after IVF, there may be a good reason why.  One third of couples who have a child through IVF get pregnant naturally for a subsequent pregnancy.  Why is this happening?  There are a number of reasons that could be behind these numbers.  First, IVF technology is constantly improving and everyone seems to be willing to jump into the procedure because of higher success rates when many of these couples would conceive
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Amethyst Fertility Bracelet click here
naturally if given time.  If a couple has unexplained infertility (as I did), that doesn't necessarily mean they can't get pregnant, it just means that they haven't got pregnant YET.  Sometimes small changes in lifestyle, stress, body weight, diet, sleep patterns etc. can tip the odds in their favor.

FOR MORE ARTICLES ON NATURAL CONCEPTION AFTER IVF SEE: getpregnantover40.com

In some previous blog posts, and from my own experience, I have mentioned something called "hormonal hangover".  This is when the drugs from IVF stay in your system and can not only cause problems if you do get pregnant, but they can throw the delicate balance of your natural hormones out of whack.  It makes me sad and a little angry to think about how much time, money and physical pain I endured needlessly with fertility treatments.  I believe these treatments actually kept me from getting pregnant naturally.  One of my IVF cycles led to an ectopic pregnancy where one of my tubes had to be removed (ectopic pregnancies are more common with IVF) and this not only decreased my chances of getting pregnant when I was ovulating on that side, but it also led to emergency surgery, and time lost when trying to conceive.

PH TO GET PREGNANT, ALKALINE OR ACIDIC?

Alkaline Vs. Acidic Foods for Fertility

First the basics. Water has a pH (measured according to the potential of hydrogen scale) of 7.0. This
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertility Bracelet with Rose Quartz, Moonstone, Amethyst Click Here
range is considered neutral, as water is neither alkaline or acid. Any substance with a pH greater than 7.0 is alkaline, and any substance with a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. For a human to maintain a proper balance, it is best to shoot for a range between 6.0 and 6.8.
The acid-alkaline balance of the blood must be stabilized via the food we eat and, as such, we must give the body a constant supply of potassium, magnesium, calcium, and sodium because these important minerals help neutralize the acid wastes that accumulate when we consume proteins, sugars, and starches.
Acid wastes can also be especially dangerous because they are believed to cause a variety of health problems and chronic diseases.

REFLEXOLOGY CAN HELP YOU CONCEIVE, GET PREGNANT

Fertility Bodywork - Reflexology

My DVD called "Fertility Bodywork" has everything from fertility yoga, pelvic massage, to acupressure and reflexology which you may perform on yourself. I thought this article might be of interest from the UK's Daily Mail. One reflexologist claims an amazing success rate. Read more:

From the article:  Reflexology, a traditional healing art dating from the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, involves manipulation of pressure points in the hands and feet and is often used to ease period pain,headaches, sinus and back problems as well as the effects of chemotherapy.
Practitioners claim the soles of the feet are like a mini map of the inside of the body and are linked to our inner organs and systems, including the fallopian tubes and ovaries. By massaging different points on the feet therapists claim they can unblock energy pathways in the body and so help the body to regain its natural balance and heal itself.
Some points on the foot are associated with a woman's egg production and by manipulating these areas reflexologists claim they can correct the imbalances which can hamper pregnancy.
The latest research, a two year clinical trial at the IVF unit at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, is the brainchild of reflexologist Jane Holt. She approached the unit after 13 of the 23 women she treated
with a range of fertility problems fell pregnant last year.  from:(www.dailymail.co.uk)

OVARIES MAY MAKE NEW EGGS - EXTENDED FERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40 and New Egg Supply

I've written about this subject before, some studies suggest that there may be a way for the ovaries to replenish their egg supply.
 The current belief is that a woman is born with all the eggs she will ever have. Read more:

Women may possess a hidden cache of stem cells in the bone marrow that constantly replenish the ovaries with new eggs, a new study suggests.

The idea contradicts long-established scientific dogma that holds that a woman is born with a complement of eggs that must last throughout her reproductive life.

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

The theory, proposed by researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital, would, if confirmed,
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle Bracelets, Rose Quartz, Amethyst
have major implications for fertility treatments, but at present it has many critics.

The researchers, led by Jonathan Tilly, report in this week's issue of Cell that the cache of germ-line stem cells in the bone marrow send cells via the blood stream, to the ovaries, which signal to the marrow when new supplies are needed.

Their work depends mostly on experiments with mice but they also cite cases where women have received bone marrow transplants after chemotherapy and unexpectedly conceived - the result, the researchers suggest, of receiving a new supply of oocyte-making cells from the new bone marrow.

VERY EARLY PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS, STRANGE, UNUSUAL

If you've struggled with infertility and you are trying to conceive, you analyze and probably over-analyze everything going on in your body especially after you know ovulation has occurred.  When I was trying to conceive I obsessed on every little change that happened in the weeks before my cycle was due to begin.
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
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

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!

OMG...ANOTHER MOTHER'S DAY STRUGGLING WITH INFERTILITY

Well, this "holiday" coming up may be the worst one of them all if you're trying to conceive. What could be harder than watching the rest of the country celebrate the joys of motherhood while you sit there stuck in infertility  quicksand.

I know much has been written by myself and others about surviving holidays while you're trying to conceive. Mother's day is a big one...so how do you get through it? Many years ago, I started the tradition of hosting a mother's day brunch at my house. I actually started this before I was even married and I continued it while I was struggling with infertility and miscarriage. Even though it seems counter-intuitive, it actually was a great thing to do. I love a good project and planning and
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm

organizing a big get-together was just enough to keep my mind off my woes.

Even if you decide not to host a big get-together at your house, try to find something that's going to keep you busy over the mother's day weekend. Since the weather's finally getting nicer, plan some outdoor activities. Work in your yard or garden, or plan a home improvement project. I can't tell you how many projects I completed during the six years I was trying to conceive. In retrospect, I'm glad I used my time productively...not only was it good for my mental health, but it was nice to get so many projects out of the way that I don't have time for now. It will be your turn one day...don't put your life on hold while you're waiting.

When I was trying to get pregant, I watched many mothers' days come and go. I remember thinking, wouldn't it be neat if I got pregnant right before mother's day and I could announce it to everyone on mother's day? Well...it never happens like that unless you're reading a romance novel or watching made-for-TV movie.

My advice? Don't ever put dates or deadlines on when you're going to get pregnant. You really will be setting yourself up for failure. Every pregnancy I had always came as a total shock (even though I was actively trying). I realize that when you're trying to conceive, every month is an opportunity for success, but it's when you start trying to force things into place that you get into trouble. If you're not pregnant this month, it doesn't mean that you're doomed. It simply means that you're not pregnant this month. When I really want something, I make my intentions known to the universe through visualization and meditation, and then I try to divert my attention elsewhere. That way I don't try too hard which essentially acts as a roadblock to my success.

YOGURT, PROBIOTICS CAN HELP YOU CONCEIVE, GET PREGNANT

 fertility yogurt

 

Fertility Yogurt Tastes Like Ice Cream!

Here is a yogurt combination which I came up with myself when I wanted a healthy sweet alternative to ice cream.  All of the ingredients either help fertility or substitute other harmful substances.  I'm totally hooked and even though I'm not trying to conceive now, I still eat it every day.  For extra health benefits, try to buy the yogurt with "active cultures".  This will give you the additional benefits of probiotics in your diet.

Here is my recipe:
1/2-1cup Plain Unflavored, Unsweetened Yogurt with active cultures (I use non-fat, but some sources claim that full-fat yogurt....

FERTILITY DETOX: CLEANSE YOUR BODY

Your egg quality may be determined a full 3 months before you conceive.  That is why it is so important to start treating your body right long before you actively start trying to get pregnant.  It is scary how many chemicals we come in contact with in the environment and many can harm fertility.  So what can you do to help rid yourself of these harmful substances?  There are natural ways to detoxify your body so you can have a healthy pregnancy.  Of course you will want to be consuming foods that can help fertility (click here for my series on fertility foods), but in addition to that, you will want to be taking active steps to cleanse and detoxify your body.

DANDELIONS ARE GREAT FOR FERTILITY: TEA RECIPE

Dandelion Fertility Tea Recipe

I'll have to admit, I've always thought of dandelions as a nuisance...until I found out what a superfood they really are.  Their bright yellow color is the first indicator that they are high in antioxidants!  You know the old saying...eat colorful fruits and vegetables for maximum health.  Dandelions are obviously inexpensive...most of us with lawns or parks nearby can easily find them.  What are the benefits of dandelions?

They cleanse the blood and help rid the body of toxic waste
They lower blood sugar
dandelion fertility tea recipe, picture of teaThey are effective against fungal and bacterial infections (including candida)
They can lower blood pressure
They are rich in vitamins, calcium potassium, iron, magnesium and more.

All of these nutrients and benefits are important if you are trying to conceive.

SEE ALSO: HERBAL FERTILITY TEA RECIPE (getpregnantover40.com) 



To make dandelion tea, first, pick fresh dandelions from an area that you are sure has not been
fertilized or sprayed with herbicides or pesticides.
Although the entire dandelion is edible, the green parts are bitter, so separate out the yellow petals for your tea.
Use fresh water in a teapot (if you are concerned about your water quality, use bottled spring water) and boil to about 170-180 degrees. Put the dandelion petals in a tea ball and place in the cup and put your heated water in the cup with the tea ball. If you would like to make a pitcher of tea, you can use a “tea sock” which will hold much more of the petals. Drink fresh or place the pitcher in the refrigerator after it is brewed to have later. It is usually recommended to drink within 72 hours for maximum freshness.

HOW ADRENAL FATIGUE HARMS YOUR FERTILITY: NATURAL SOLUTIONS

 Adrenal fatigue seems to be a common "buzz word" nowadays and probably for good reason.  So many people are burning the candle at both ends, that they are stressing their adrenal glands.  The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system and are responsible for a number of hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and more.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle Bracelet, White Turquoise, Amethyst
So what does this have to do with infertility?  Everything!  For starters, adrenal fatigue can cause an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone.  Normally, there is a balance between these two hormones that help women ovulate and have a regular period.  They rise and fall in orchestration with
each other...sometimes one goes up while the other falls and so on.
When the adrenal glands are overworked, progesterone is moved from helping the body with ovulation and the menstrual cycle and diverted to produce cortisol.  This causes estrogen to dominate and then you have a condition called estrogen dominance.
I would have been a perfect case study for this condition when I was in my upper 30's.  I had a corporate pressure cooker job and I really had no idea how much stress I was under because it became commonplace in my day to day life.  I worked long hours, I gulped my lunch down while I was walking from meeting to meeting, and I internalized all of my workplace demands.  So what can one do to help your body's adrenal glands get back to normal?

PELVIC MASSAGE FOR FERTILITY (PERFORM YOURSELF)

Pelvic Massage Techniques


My Fertility Bodywork Video demonstrates these techniques, but here are some pelvic massages you can perform on yourself.  It is not recommended to do any of these techniques if there is any possibility that you may already be pregnant.  You should also refrain from these techniques if you are on your menstrual cycle:

1.    Uterine Lift

Many women carry their uterus too low because of past sports and exercise, trauma and heavy lifting.

2.    Uterine Massage
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility Goddess with Moonstone

First, find your uterus with the triangle mentioned above with your thumbs and forefingers.  Start the massage with an up and down motion along the uterus.  Then, using moderate pressure, massage the uterus along an imaginary circle on the outside of the uterus and then an inner circle on the uterus.  The massage will consist of small circular motions with your index and middle fingers.  To finish, roll over on your stomach and pat your lower back.
 The uterine lift can put the uterus back into its proper position which will help with the proper flow of blood, lymphatic fluids and nerve impulses.  First, find your uterus by making a triangle with your thumbs and forefingers with the thumbs at the navel.  The uterus should be at the tips of the forefingers. Move down to the bottom of the uterus which should be just above the pubic bone.  Push down and try to scoop the uterus up with your fingers toward your navel.  Hold for about 30 seconds and release.

ALL ABOUT NATURAL PROGESTERONE CREAM FOR FERTILITY

So what is Natural Progesterone Cream?  Many women experience something call estrogen dominance.  Normally your hormones have a happy balance between estrogen and progesterone.  They rise and fall during your monthly cycle which helps trigger your period.  However, I had
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Rose Quartz Fertile Turtle Bracelet
(also available in Amethyst)

Click here for our selection of fertility bracelets
something called estrogen dominance.  My progesterone fell too quickly in my cycle which made it hard to sustain a pregnancy.  When I went through fertility treatments, they checked my progesterone and they said it had a "ski jump" pattern.  It went up, but it fell too quickly in my cycle which made sustaining a pregnancy difficult.
When I discontinued fertility treatments, I wanted a natural option to help my body manufacture progesterone.  So I did some research on natural ways to increase progesterone through diet and I also did some research on natural progesterone cream which I used.  This did help to lengthen my cycles and eventually I got pregnant with my daughter naturally at the age of 44 (with only one fallopian tube I might add!)

BIRTH DEFECTS, PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS: ARE THEY REALLY HIGHER OVER 40?

 When I was trying to conceive over the age of 40, I was bombarded with all of the negative outcomes and statistics of how women over 40 suffer higher miscarriage rates, higher stillbirth rates
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
CLICK HERE FOR CHAKRA FERTILITY JEWELRY
and a higher rate of birth defects. I went out of my way to avoid reading about the doom and gloom of pregnancy over 40. When I finally got pregnant with my daughter, the well-meaning medical professionals added insult to injury by scaring me half to death by constantly reminding me that I was considered to be "advanced maternal age" and I had endless ultrasounds and every prenatal test in the book. I was counseled with genetic testing, and told that after my delivery (which could likely be a C-Section), I might need a hysterectomy if they couldn't get the placenta out. As it turns out, I had a completely normal pregnancy with absolutely no complications and a completely normal delivery with no interventions at all. Best of all, my daughter was completely perfect and still is (in my totally unbiased opinion!)
 So, what is the real scoop about pregnancy complications and birth defects over the age of 40?

CAN I GET PREGNANT WITH HIGH FSH?

When I was trying to conceive, I used to live and die by my "numbers".  I did go through fertility treatments before I conceived my daughter naturally.  I can't even begin to tell you how much lab work I had and how the whole process revolved around FSH levels, estrogen, progesterone...blah blah blah.  I finally felt like my life was not my own.  My body and my fertility were owned by the doctors. 
After my failed IVF's, multiple miscarriages, an ectopic pregnancy with the loss of one of my tube...I finally threw in the towel and thought this is no way to live.  If this is what it takes to have a baby, I guess I will have to wait until my next life.  But then, guess what happened? I let go and let my body
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility Symbol Necklace with healing stones and symbols
do what it should do naturally.  I ate well, got plenty of sleep and followed what I now call my natural pregnancy protocol and conceived my daughter the old fashioned way. 
So, what were my FSH levels at the age of 44 when I had her?  I don't know!  But I'm sure they were high as they probably are at that age.
I have a number of true stories on a page on my site devoted to getting pregnant with high FSH.

WHAT ARE CASTOR OIL PACKS, HOW CAN THEY HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

Natural Holistic Remedies - Castor Oil Pack

Guest Post By Alan Joel

Edgar Cayce, the medical clairvoyant, in his "readings" suggested the use of castor oil packs for all kinds of conditions, from detoxification to arthritis, to improve circulation and to increase elimination. Both in literature case studies and in my practice I've seen it to be one of the best natural
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard Fertility Necklace
holistic remedies around. Plus, it's something really simple to do. Just apply wool flannel soaked in castor oil and slightly warmed to the affected area of your body. Put a heating pad on top and relax for 1-1.5 hours. Wipe off excess oil with a baking soda paste and you're done.
In my healing practice I've seen castor oil packs help with conditions ranging from bone spurs and arthritis to acute injuries like sprained ankles. Castor oil packs also relieve pain from aching backs and chronically sore joints. This application of castor oil is natural, holistic, and inherently wise. When applied to a joint, the castor oil helps to dissolve anything that should not be there, such as adhesions or bone spurs, while leaving intact everything that should. Impressive. Ready to dive in? Here are the simple steps to use this natural holistic remedy.

FOR A VIDEO ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CASTOR OIL PACKS FOR FERTILITY CLICK HERE (getpregnantover40.com) 


1. Use official Edgar Cayce castor oil materials. You can order the wool pack and Palma Cristi Castor Oil from Heritage Store in Virginia Beach or at most local health food stores.
2. Follow the directions on pack but do not boil wool pack in water.
3. Fold pack so it will fit in the bottom of a pyrex brand bread or baking dish.  Saturate with caster oil and then warm in oven or toaster oven (do not use the microwave - ever!)
4. Remove the cloth cover from heating pad and turn on high.
5. Put down a plastic sheet or large trash bag where pack is to be done to protect sofa or bed.
6. Fold an old towel lengthwise and put on top of plastic to wrap around pack and heating pad.
7. If the pack is to be done on front of body, put warmed pack saturated with caster oil on area after you lie down. Put heating pad on top of pack and wrap towel around you and the pack.
8. If pack is to be done on the back of the body, lay towel down with the heating pad on top of that. Place the pack on top of the heating pad and lie on top of the pack, then wrap the towel around.
9. Leave pack on for 1-1.5 hours. While pack is on, listen to soft, harmonious music, or read (or be read to) spiritual or uplifting material.  No chaos or negative energy, which could contaminate the finer bodies.
10. After 1-1.5 hours, remove the pack and store it in the pyrex dish in a cool dark place.
11. Wash the entire area with a mixture of baking soda and warm water. (Use about a level teaspoon of baking soda and just enough water to create a mixture slightly thinner than paste.)  Using an old wash cloth, scrub the entire area with the baking soda solution.  This removes any remaining oil and, more importantly, neutralizes the acids that are pulled out by the pack, transforming them into harmless salts to be flushed out by the lymphatic system. This is a key to success for this natural holistic remedy.
12. Other notes:
  • The pack is best done in the evening, prior to bedtime, since this is a very relaxing time. The wool pack is generally folded in half when applied to the body.
  •  
  • It is best to establish a rhythm of doing and not doing the pack: Monday - Wednesday - Friday, or Tuesday - Thursday - Saturday, or Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday then stop for 4 days.
  •  
  • The first pack done should generally be done on the entire abdomen to clean the organs of assimilation and elimination first.  Then the back can often be next - then the specific problem area.  Then keep rotating. It is not necessary to wash the pack.

FENG SHUI TO HELP YOU CONCEIVE

Pregnancy Over 40, Try Feng Shui!

I've written before about feng shui for fertility and this article has some new suggestions for what to place in the bedroom and how to arrange furniture.


At first, I didn't know if I believed in feng shui, but the more I read about it, it makes sense that energy can be blocked by furniture placement, clutter and so on.  Read more:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Feng Shui Amethyst Bracelet for Fertility
Feng Shui to improve fertility luck and help conceive babies

The following Feng Shui tips are meant to help couples who have difficulty conceiving, despite being medically fit in reproductive health.

Poison Arrows afflicting the main door and bed

Look out of your house and check if there’s any ‘poison arrows‘ pointing directly towards your main door. Poison arrows in Feng Shui refers to sharp and pointed structures which inflicts bad chi to the lives of afflicted inhabitants. It can be a sharp angle of a building, edge of a wall, pillars, trees, table corner and such.

SEE ALSO: MORE ON FENG SHUI TO GET PREGNANT (Getpregnantover40.com)

Within your bedroom, observe and find poison arrows pointed towards the bed.

If you find any, both external and internal poison arrows must be shielded, reflected or hidden from view.

If you have any doubts with your own ability to recognise or suppress poison arrows, it is best to use a qualified Feng Shui practitioner for peace of mind.


The bedroom and interior decor

Again, take note of poison arrows pointing towards your bed and hide them from view.

If your bedroom is a mess you should probably give it a good spring cleaning now. Clutter weakens the ‘chi‘ in a given area. Since we’re trying to apply Feng Shui to bring about positive ‘chi’ into the bedroom, clean it up until your bedroom feels comfortable and relaxing to be in. Some feng shui practitioners suggest anything under the bed must not be disturb when couples are trying to conceive until the baby is born.

This is important: Position the bed so that your husband’s head is pointed towards his ‘Nien Yen’ direction, which activates his descendant’s luck. To find out your husband’s ‘Nien Yen‘ direction, you should first find out his KUA number. There are a number of feng shui related websites out there that calculates it for you – Smilingbamboo.com for instance, also has a chart of favourite directions for every individual’s KUA number.

VISUALIZATION MAY WORK BETTER THAN FERTILITY TREATMENTS

Having A Baby Over 40

Estrogen levels, progesterone levels, FSH levels, egg quality, sperm quality, ovulation, fertilization, uterine lining, implantation, HcG levels, etc. etc. etc.

Whoa! STOP!

Volumes have been written on all of the above. Do we really need to delve so deeply into our reproductive physiology to have a baby? Well, I guess that's what we pay reproductive endocrinologists for. It's mind boggling to think about the synchronistic orchestration of events that have to occur to get pregnant and have a baby. But is all this really necessary? Is it all just luck or a random luck of the draw that determines who gets pregnant and who doesn't? Especially for us "long shots?" Do we all really need medical degrees? And even if we all had one, would that help us get pregnant? Is it a productive use of our time to try to control microscopic events? Whew!

Let me propose that you step back for a moment and try a different approach:
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Click here for fertility bracelets with healing stones

Focus on the outcome of your desires, not the path that will get you there.

If you desperately want a baby, you need to be focused on having a baby, not on every blip of your lab work. That's one reason why I'm so glad I discontinued fertility treatments. I didn't want someone telling me every reason in the world why I wasn't going to get pregnant(and every reason why I would miscarry if I did). I was going to have a baby and that was that! So there!

So how do you shift your thinking? First of all, I do believe in preparedness. That's one reason I developed my pregnancy protocol. It helps to prepare your body for conception and pregnancy. But a major factor in success (not just in getting pregnant) is visualizing the outcome. For example:

If you desperately want a baby, visualize how happy you'll be when you hold that baby in your arms... don't focus on how you want a baby and you don't have one

Visualize playing and laughing with your baby, feeding your baby, dressing your baby, and loving your baby. Your visualizations should be so strong that you're your smiling and happy the rest of the day because you know your baby is on the way... not sad and depressed that everyone has a baby except you

It's a small but powerful shift in thinking and it's a heck of a lot easier than going to medical school (I have a CD on visualization and meditation which may help - click here.) I don't know the universal mechanics, but it's what you focus on that you attract. If you focus on your baby, you attract a baby, if you focus on not having one....guess what? If you're in the negative mindset...have a good cry, maybe even scream while your at it. Once you get it out of your system, you may be better able to focus on what you want, not what you don't have.

VAGINAL LUBRICANTS: SOME HARM, SOME HELP SPERM

Getting Pregnant, Cervical Mucus and Vaginal Lubricants

Lets face it, painful intercourse doesn't help matters when you're trying to conceive.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
Most of us have heard that vaginal lubricants are a big no-no because they hurt sperm (even if they don't contain ingredients classified as spermicides). 
 This article discusses the research in that area along with one recommendation for a sperm friendly lubricant. Read more:

Additionally, a common misconception is that if a lubricant does not contain a spermicide or if it is water soluble, it will not impair sperm function. Unfortunately, this is completely inaccurate. Water based lubricants often have glycerin (which has been shown to be toxic to sperm) and propylene glycol both of which are highly hyperosmotic.

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertility Bracelets with Healing Stones and Fertility Symbols click here
 This results in irreversible damage to sperm and a loss in motility after exposure to commercial lubricants. Damage to sperm and subsequent inability of the sperm to penetrate into the cervix following contact with lubricants may prevent conception in some couples, resulting in consequences such as undesired childlessness, or the advancement to more invasive advanced reproduction technologies (all of which carry added economic costs and medical risks). If there is any evidence that a vaginal lubricant can interfere or limit a couple's fertility, it should carry a warning label to avoid its use while trying to conceive, and testing needs to be established by the FDA for any products that claim to not harm sperm.  

See Also: Improving Cervical Mucus (www.getpregnantover40.com)

In contrast, Pre~Seed "sperm-friendly" Intimate Moisturizer was developed in response to the need for a product to replenish vaginal moisture without harming sperm while couples were trying to conceive. Each lot is tested to not harm sperm before it is sold. So if you are trying to conceive, know the facts about vaginal lubricants. They damage sperm and should be avoided. If you need help with dryness, as many couples do, Pre~Seed was developed by a Sperm Physiologist and has several studies presented at National Reproductive Meetings suggesting its "sperm-friendly" nature.

GETTING PREGNANT, LET GO AND LET.....

I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say that! When I ran a support group for my local infertility organization, practically every woman in the group who got pregnant said that very thing.

Infertility chips away at your self esteem and it makes you believe that you're unworthy of the most basic of human needs. If you've been struggling with infertility for over a year (or two or three), you begin to believe that getting pregnant is this impossible dream - it's soooo way out there that you'll never achieve it. Well...it may be helpful for you to know that almost everyone in your situation has
felt that way.

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Sacral Chakra Bracelet for Fertility and Pregnancy, Click here
A couple of weeks before I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I was ready to throw in the towel. I told everyone in the support group I was moving on to childfree, and my husband and I started making some real plans for the future. For the past six years our lives revolved around timing
intercourse, taking pregnacy tests, having miscarriages (and sometimes surgery to remove them), and spending every waking moment wondering if I had done everything possible to conceive.

SEE ALSO: SURPRISE PREGNANCY AT 49 (getpregnantover40.com)

And then, just when I had made peace with my decision to move on to childfree, the "impossible" happened - I was pregnant. Why is life like that? Why did I have to get to the point of hopelessness before I suceeded? Well, my theory boils down to this: When you lower your resistance, you make room for success. So what does that mean? When you want something so bad, and it's not happening, you focus more on what you don't have instead of what you do have or what you want. You try to force things into place. When you finally give up, the flood gates open. Your dream starts chasing you instead of the other way around.

We've launched enough intentions to be busy for many lifetimes, but we just need open the pathway for them to come to fruition. We've all heard the old sayings, "Relax, it will happen" and "Let go and let God". All of these are different ways of saying the same thing. Know in your mind that good things will come to you. The fastest and most direct route to getting what you want is by bringing yourself to a positive point of attraction.

Staying in the mindset of why me? Why can't I get pregnant? Why can't I have a baby? This will only attract more of the same. Sometimes, letting go can feel so good...and guess what? Feeling good attracts the positive things to your life.
