Diet and Supplements To Enhance Men's Fertility and Sperm Count

The following supplements have been found to be fertility boosters in men:

Zinc and Folic Acid
Fertility Bracelet, customize your charm!
Zinc and Folic acid taken together have shown to significantly increase the number of normal sperm in semen. Folic Acid may be found in green leafy vegetables, legumes, oranges and fortified cereals. Zinc is found in red meat, poultry, and fortified cereals. You may want to take a supplement if you can’t get these through your diet.


Selenium may be essential for male fertility. Selenium may prevent sperm damage and is found in seafood, meat, liver, and grains. It is usually present in multivitamins.

Omega-3 fatty acids

Sperm have naturally occurring "prostaglandins" which are hormone like substances. Some prostaglandins are good and some are bad. Men should do everything they can to manufacture the “good” prostaglandins which will help with sperm quality. Some men with poorly functioning sperm have been found to have low levels of the good prostaglandins. You should be eating a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. See my fertility diet section for food sources. You could also consider taking a supplement.


L-Arginine can help with the quality and quantity of sperm. It is an amino acid which is found in the head of the sperm.


L-Carnitine is an amino acid which helps with the motility and volume of sperm. It also helps with the formation (size and shape) and proper maturation of sperm.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has been shown to enhance sperm quality by protecting it from DNA damage. If the sperm’s DNA is damaged, and conception occurs, it could lead to miscarriage, or possibly chromosomal damage and birth defects.

Men, Watch Out for These Things If You're Trying To Conceive


Most vaginal lubricants are harmful to sperm. However there are a few on the market that are not. Do your research to find lubricants that are sperm friendly if you absolutely need a vaginal lubricant during intercourse. Some sources actually recommend using egg whites if you need lubrication. If at all possible, do not lubricants.


Certain medications can interfere with sperm production. Some of these include cimetidine (an acid reducer), some blood pressure medications, certain antibiotics, some medications taken for depression, some arthritis medications and cancer chemotherapy drugs. Talk with your doctor if you need to take medications for any reason to find out if the drug you are taking affects sperm production. If it does, there may be alternatives.

Hot Showers, Saunas, Hot Tubs
Try to avoid long hot showers, saunas, baths, hot tubs, etc. The testes are normally cooler than the rest of the body and this is important for sperm production. Studies have shown that sperm concentration dropped by 40% when the scrotal temperature went up by 1 to 2 degrees (Fahrenheit).
Laptop Computers

Using laptop computers may raise scrotal temperature up to 5 degrees. Part of the increase in temperature is attributed to the heat generated by the computer itself and another part of the increase is attributed to the position men must sit in to balance a computer on their lap (with their thighs close together). If you do use a laptop computer, sit at a desk. Do not put the computer directly on your lap.

Boxers vs. Briefs?
There actually is no evidence that wearing boxers vs. briefs is better for male fertility. Most people think that briefs will warm the testicles more because they’re tighter and worn closer to the body. Maybe that’s true, but it hasn’t been proven to lower fertility. You be the judge, if you want to try boxers, there’s no harm in it.

EPO or Evening Primrose Oil has been known to enhance women's fertility for women who are trying to conceive and get pregnant. It comes from a wildflower which grows in North America (the oil is extracted from the seeds.) You can take this supplement in in capsules or liquid form in the amount of 1500mg to 3000mg per day. It should be kept in the refrigerator and out of sunlight. Of course, you should talk with your doctor before taking any supplement

Evening Primrose Oil is high in vitamin E and GLA (gamma-linolelic acid) which helps your body
Healing stones, fertility bracelet, elephant charm
manufacture the “good” prostaglandins. These “good” prostaglandins are hormone-like substances which improve the cervix and cervical mucus. GLA also works as a vessel dilator and blood thinner.

Evening primrose oil is also thought to improve the uterine lining and strengthen the placenta. It acts as an anti-inflammatory which can help with conditions like endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disorders. It should be noted that some studies have questioned it's effectiveness as a fertility enhancer, however this could be attributed to poor study design. If you are having problems with the quality of your cervical mucus, Evening Primrose Oil may help with this as well. If you are experiencing thick or hostile cervical mucus, it may help you attain the "egg white" consistency that is necessary to help sperm swim. It is recommended not to use this supplement during the last half of the menstrual cycle (luteal phase) since it may cause uterine contractions. If you are trying to conceive, this could make conception less likely since it may be harder for the egg to implant.

There are a number of infections which can cause infertility. As I was researching this subject, I was quite surprised how many cases of infertility could be resolved by just clearing up an underlying infections. The first one is quite common, bacterial vaginosis. See also an article by Dr. Mirkin about other infections which should be ruled out before women undergo fertility treatments:

Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis isn't technically considered a sexually-transmitted infection, however, having a number of sexual partners or even a new partner can make a woman more likely to get this infection. There are a number of organisms that are normally found in a woman's vagina, however, with bacterial vaginosis, the balance of good bacteria and bad bacteria is thrown off. Two different antibiotics are recommended as treatment for bacterial vaginosis: metronidazole or clindamycin. Metronidazole comes in both pill and gel form. Of course you should talk with your doctor about symptoms and treatments.

Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma

from Dr.

Recent reports from the University of Maryland (25) and Germany (1) show that before you consult an infertility doctor to help you become pregnant, take antibiotics to treat a possible hidden infection. Many other studies show that the most common cause of infertility is a uterine infection (2,3,4,5,6,7,8).

Of women being evaluated for infertility, 40% are infected with chlamydia, mycoplasma or ureaplasma, as are 36% of those with a previous history of uterine infection and 50% of those with tubal blockage. More than 60% had evidence of a past infection (9). The more partners you have, the
Amethyst, White Turquoise, Elephant Fertility Bracelet click here
more likely you are to be infected (10), although you can be infected by one contact (11). An infection can prevent pregnancy by blocking the uterine tubes (12,13,14). It can damage sperm (14A), so they can’t swim toward the egg (15), and it can cause abortions, premature birth and low birth weight (16,26,27,28,29). Infected people may have burning on urination, discomfort when the bladder is full or an urgency to void. Women may have only spotting between periods (17).

Infection with chlamydia is the most common cause of blocked Fallopian tubes that cause infertility. First, chlamydia paralyzes the cilia so the egg can’t reach the uterus, then it blocks the tubes so that nothing can pass into the uterus. The first study from the Netherlands shows that having antibodies against chlamydia is a potent predictor of blocked tubes (34). The second study shows that many women infected with chlamydia don’t have high antibody titers to chlamydia (35). Men and women can be infected with mycoplasma or ureaplasma (17A,17B), even though all available tests can’t find them (18) and they may have no symptoms at all. A dipstick urine test may diagnose the infection (19,20). Semen from 91% of infertile men contains types of bacteria that grow without oxygen (21). Before infertile couples spend between $10,000 and $150,000 for infertility evaluations and treatments, they should ask their gynecologists to treat them with newer erythomycins, Zithromax (250 mg once a day for 8 days) or Biaxin (500 mg BID for 10 days), for chlamydia and mycoplasma infections (22,23).

Infections in Pregnancy


Rubella in pregnancy

If you catch rubella (German measles) in the first four months of pregnancy, it can seriously affect your baby's sight and hearing, as well as causing brain and heart defects. All children are now offered a vaccine against rubella through the MMR immunisation when they are 13 months old, and a second immunisation before they start school. If you are not immune and you do come into contact with rubella, tell your doctor at once. Blood tests will show whether you have been infected and you'll be able to decide what action to take.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) in pregnancy

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that is one of the herpes group of viruses, which can also cause cold sores and chickenpox. Infection can be hazardous during pregnancy as it can cause problems for unborn babies, such as hearing loss, visual impairment or blindness, learning difficulties and epilepsy.  CMV is particularly dangerous to the baby if the pregnant mother has not previously had the infection at some point in her life. It is not always possible to prevent a cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, but you can take some steps to reduce the risk. CMV infections are common in young children. You can reduce the risk of infection with some simple steps, such as:
wash your hands regularly using soap and hot water, particularly if you have been changing nappies or if you work in a nursery or day-care centre
you should not kiss young children on the face – it is better to kiss them on the head or give them a hug
do not share food or eating utensils with young children or drink from the same glass as them
These precautions are particularly important if you have a job that brings you into close contact with young children. In this case, you can have a blood test to find out whether you have previously been infected with CMV.

Herpes in pregnancy

Genital herpes infection can be dangerous for a newborn baby. It can be caught through genital contact with an infected person or from oral sex with someone who has cold sores (oral herpes). Initial infection causes painful blisters or ulcers on the genitals. Less severe attacks usually occur for some years afterwards. Treatment is available if your first infection occurs in pregnancy. If your first infection occurs near the end of pregnancy or during labour, a caesarean section may be recommended to reduce the risk of passing herpes to your baby. If you or your partner have herpes, use condoms or avoid sex during an attack. Avoid oral sex if you or your partner have cold sores or genital sores (active genital herpes). Tell your doctor or midwife if either you or your partner have recurring herpes or develop the symptoms described above.

Chickenpox in pregnancy

Chickenpox infection in pregnancy can be dangerous for both mother and baby, so it's important to seek advice early if you think you may have chickenpox. Around 95% of women are immune to chickenpox. But if you've never had chickenpox (or you're unsure if you've have it) and you come into contact with a child or adult who has it, speak to your GP, obstetrician or midwife immediately. A blood test will establish if you are immune.

Toxoplasmosis in pregnancy

You can catch toxoplasmosis through contact with cat faeces. If you are pregnant, the infection can damage your baby, so take precautions – see Infections transmitted by animals, further down this page, or preventing toxoplasmosis. Most women have had the infection before pregnancy and will be immune. If you feel you may have been at risk, discuss it with your GP, midwife or obstetrician. If you are infected while you're pregnant, treatment for toxoplasmosis is available. Treatment can reduce the risk of the baby becoming infected. Where the baby is infected, treatment may reduce the risk of damage.

Feng Shui can be used to attract baby chi for pregnancy. Feng Shui was originally developed in China and it is considered both an art and a science. If you are wondering exactly what feng shui means, the word "feng" means wind, and the word "shui" means water. It is thought that our spaces are filled with energy or "Chi". One goal is to make sure that your living area has positive energy flow. So how can Feng Shui help with fertility and getting pregnant? Your environment can help create positive baby "Chi". Read more:

Feng Shui Tips for Fertility

1. Clear out clutter that might be blocking energy flow - this also makes room for a baby in your life

2. Remove ceiling fans and large light fixtures over your bed - this is thought to empty the energy around the solar plexus which might prevent a pregnancy from implanting or growing.

3. Remove mirrors from your bedroom and keep mirrors away from your front door. Mirrors are thought to push away energy

4. Keep electronic devices away from your bed

5. Do not store items under your bed

6. Elephants in feng shui, among other things, symbolize fertility - place an elephant in the West or Northwest direction. You can also wear an elephant charm (see the fertility bracelet here) which can also promote fruitfulness in the wearer. It is also recommended to put one elephant inside the bedroom door and another outside the bedroom door to welcome your new baby into your life.

7. Avoid the color red in your bedroom as it is too hot and is thought to drain the baby energy. Try to incorporate calming and gender-neutral colors like white, tan, ivory and gold.

8. Add a water feature to your house and bedroom like a small fountain.

9. Place a small dragon symbol or charm near your bed to conjure up Yang energy to help you conceive

10. Make sure there is nothing but open space in your entry area outside your front door. If you have a busy street, trees or other obstructions outside your front door,try placing wind chimes on either side of the front door to counteract the obstruction

11. Put a bowl of pomegranates (which symbolize fertility) in your bedroom, but keep them fresh. You could also hang a picture of a pair of pomegranates

12. Consider using fertility friendly green sheets on your bed and painting the wall behind the bed

yellow (the color of children)

13. Eliminate “poison arrows” near your front door and in your bedroom. These are sharp angular objects which create sharp corners pointing at you. You can cover them up with plants, but don’t use plants that have sharp leaves creating more arrows.

14. Add a figure or statue of Buddha with children in the West area of your bedroom. Do not place this figure on the floor

15. Place a hollow piece of bamboo in the West area of the bedroom. This symbolizes growth, flexibility and freedom.

16. After you have cleared all the clutter from under your bed, place a bowl of uncooked white rice underneath the bed. This symbolizes fertility for those sleeping in the bed. Before we knew the dangers to birds, white rice was thrown at weddings to bring children to the newlyweds.

17. Hang pictures of babies and children in your bedroom. This might also be a good place to hang your vision board 

18. Wear fertility stones such as Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Carnelian:
Rose Quartz is also called Pink Quartz. It is a popular stone for healing and is frequently used in feng shui. The pink color of rose quartz is thought to attract love energy. Rose quartz is thought to carry feminine
energy and it targets the heart chakra. Rose quartz promotes vitality, energy and fertility and it is commonly thought of as a fertility stone. It can also be helpful to put rose quartz on your belly when you do become pregnant.
Amethyst is considered to be a healing crystal. It is supposed to strengthen the endocrine glands which are at the root of hormonal balance and it is good for the nervous system. It balances your energy and it is thought to be good for sleep which is essential if you are trying to conceive. Amethyst is thought to absorb negative energy and promote positivity.
In the evening, after wearing this jewelry and taking it off, hang it in the southwest portion of the bedroom preferably next to a picture of you and your partner and perhaps next to a vision board of babies.

Carnelian is a stone that is orange and resonates with the sacral chakra which is tied to the reproductive system in both women and men. In Feng Shui, Carnelian means "fire energy" and it is thought to bring passion to couples and add warmth to the home. It encourages abundance and its Yang nature inspires action. Wearing this stone during meditation or prayer can help encourage a connection with your higher power and/or guardian angels. Orange stones, in particular, are fertility and potency symbols and are linked with conceiving a child.

19. Fertility Goddess symbolism.

Most cultures have some type of fertility goddess. Using fertility goddess symbols that are meaningful to you can help increase your chances of getting pregnant. Most women and men find it easiest to wear jewelry with goddess charms rather than carrying them around in other ways. After removing the jewelry in the evening, it is recommended to store them outside the bedroom as it is seen as a sign of disrespect in Feng Shui to place a goddess in the bedroom. Perhaps place them in a jewelry box in the bathroom or closet.

20. Turtles in Feng Shui:

Turtles can help strengthen energy and they provide protection and stability. Additionally they symbolize longevity and good luck. All these things are important if you are trying to conceive. In other cultures, turtles have been linked with the fertility goddess Aphrodite,the Greek goddess of love and procreation.

21. Wear and decorate with the color orange to activate and balance your Sacral Chakra. As mentioned above in the fertility stones, orange stones like Carnelian resonates with the sacral chakra. However, wearing the color orange and incorporating a small amount of this color in your decor can help as well.

How do you know if you have fertile cervical mucus? What can you do to improve the quantity and quality? Having the right amount and the right consistency of cervical mucus is critical to conception. During your cycle you have a “fertile window” when your cervical mucus is sperm friendly which is usually right before and during ovulation. So how do you improve your cervical mucus? Here are
Chakra Fertility Bracelet: Carnelian, Amethyst, White Turquoise
some things you can do:

Drink water

It just makes sense that if you are dehydrated or underhydrated that your cervical mucus will be thick with less volume. When you have a cold or cough, one of the first things doctors will tell you to do is “drink plenty of fluids”. Why? Because it thins out your mucus so you can cough it up. The same thing holds true for cervical mucus, with proper hydration, the consistency will be thinner and you will have more of it. Sperm need “egg white” consistency cervical mucus.

Dietary Changes

Grapefruit juice:
Drinking grapefruit juice seems to help some women with the consistency of their cervical mucus.

Limit Dairy Products
Dairy products may make cervical mucus thick

Dark Beans
Try to consume black or red beans

Dark Leafy green vegetables
Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries

Evening Primrose Oil
This should be taken in the first half of your cycle before ovulation. The recommended amount is 1500-3000mg per day

Cough syrups which contain the expectorant guaifenesin.
The idea here is that it thins out the mucus in your lungs so you can cough it out but it will also have an effect on thinning out your cervical mucus. Follow the directions on the package as differing brands will contain differing amounts.

Egg Whites As A Vaginal Lubricant
Remove a fresh egg from the refrigerator, and let it get to room temperature (although you should not let the egg stay out of the refrigerator for more than an hour). Separate the yolk from the white and discard the yolk. Ensure that there are no bits of shells present in the egg white and use as you normally would with a vaginal lubricant. Make sure your hands have been freshly washed and careful attention should be made to make sure that the egg has not been out of the refrigerator for more than an hour to avoid contamination with bacteria.

Medications/Supplements to avoid:

Avoid taking too much vitamin C as this could cause your cervical mucus to become too acidic

Avoid taking antihistamines as these dry up your mucus which may be good for your nasal passages, but it will dry up and make cervical mucus thick as well.

Avoid over-the counter vaginal lubricants as these typically do not create the proper environment for sperm. However, there are some lubricants on the market like "Pre-seed" which are sperm friendly.

Explanation Of Chicken Pox

Most of us of a certain age think about chicken pox as something little kids get. Chicken pox is caused by the herpes virus (varicella-zoster). It is an infectious disease, contagious, and can spread either through direct contact with the affected person or through the air. Chicken pox frequently affects preschool and elementary age children, however, men and women can get it too and it can be more severe in adults. When a person is affected with chicken pox, they will usually feel feverish, with muscle aches, appetite loss, nausea and perhaps headache. A rash will then appear with blisters which scab over. Shingles is another disease which is caused by the same virus.
Fertile Turtle Bracelet, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, White Turquoise
Vaccinations typically protect against chicken pox, however, it still is possible to get the disease even
after receiving a dose of the vaccine. Adults who did not have chicken pox as a child can get it as an adult. It usually passes without complications, but it can lead to problems like infections of the skin, pneumonia or encephalitis in rare cases.

How Can Chicken Pox Affect Male Fertility?

First, if a man has chicken pox in childhood, this should not affect his fertility in adulthood.

If an adult Male has chicken pox with a fever, the high temperature could affect his production of sperm as fever with any other illness. However, sperm production should return to normal within about 3 months.

In rare cases the varicella virus can lead to a condition called “orchitis” which could lead to the reduction in size of the testicles and ultimately affect a man's sperm production.

Chaste tree berry acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands

by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) production and mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). The result is a shift in the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, in favor of progesterone. The ability of chaste tree berry to raise progesterone levels in the body is an indirect effect, so the herb itself is not a hormone.

Lack of menstruation (amenorrhea) that is caused by a lack of ovulation, and therefore a lack of progesterone production, should result in menses when progesterone is taken. Progesterone-induced

menses indicates an intact reproductive system that just isn't going through its cycle.

It suggests that the body is producing enough FSH to stimulate the ovaries, and that the ovaries can develop follicles. It also indicates that follicular production of estrogen is sufficient to cause the lining of the uterus (endometrium) to grow and that the sloughed endometrium is able to pass through the cervical opening and the vagina. Therefore it's possible that the problem is a dysfunction in the hypothalamus or pituitary glands. The ability of chaste tree to modulate the hypothalamus or pituitary then makes this herb a good candidate for treating amenorrhea (infertility).

It inhibits prolactin release by the pituitary gland, especially when you are under stress.

The Evidence for Vitex Agnus Castus

Here are some vitex studies relating to the use of the chasteberry:
Vitex and Fertility. In this study, a chasteberry preparation was used in a study of 3,162 women to assess the effectiveness of vitex for corpus luteum insufficiency. 77.4% had menstrual cycle disturbances of various types and the others suffered from a range of gynecological problems which included symptoms of corpus luteum insufficiency. The average length of treatment was 5 months. Hormone cytology and symptoms were used to assess the treatment.

The women reported the treatment as completely effective (33%), significant improvement (55%), and no change (7%). Their doctors reported very good results in 68% of cases, adequate in 22%, and no change in 7%.

High levels of the hormone prolactin are commonly found with corpus luteum insufficiency. Vitex is useful for reducing high prolactin levels.

The Vitex Fertility Solution - How Does the Vitex Fertility Solution Work?
By Guest Post by Olivia Hall
A well known herb called Vitex or Chasteberry is said to have a lot of ingredients that can correct a lot of hormonal imbalances in women. One of the most important factors in attempting to conceive is a regular menstrual cycle. Can the Vitex fertility solution help with this?
It has been proven time and again that Chasteberry or Vitex can correct problems including insufficient progesterone. If a woman has insufficient progesterone, she may be susceptible to ovarian cysts, endometriosis and uterine fibroids. So how does Vitex work, exactly?
1. This herb increases lutenizing hormone (LH) production and reduces or inhibits the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). These hormones are produced in the hypothalamus and pituitary glands. This causes a change in the ratio between estrogen and progesterone, increasing the progesterone.
2. High levels of prolactin can be a barrier to fertility. Vitex works to reduce the high levels of this particular hormone.
3. If a woman is not having regular periods, or has no periods at all, the increase in progesterone should cause her to begin menstruating, naturally. If a woman lacks progesterone, the egg may not be released, and, of course, if the egg is not released, there is no chance of conception.
4. A daily dose of 60 drops of a tincture containing vitex or 175 mg of an extract is recommended as a vitex fertility booster.
There are some known drug interactions included with hormone replacement therapy, oral contraceptives, and dopamine agonists. Of course, if you are trying to increase fertility, you are likely not taking any oral contraceptives. In order to get the best results from this course of treatment, you will need to take vitex for a minimum of three to six months.

Most women report noticeable results around the fourth month or menstrual cycle of taking this supplement. Vitex can be taken for up to 18 months continuously.
It is important to obtain Vitex in a supplement that is as close to natural as possible. Many so called supplements on the market contain very little active ingredient or actual herb extract, so you will need to examine and read labels very carefully.
Working towards a better hormonal balance and eventually, inducing ovulation can be achieved, with this supplement. The key to becoming pregnant is ovulating and having a regular monthly period and menstrual cycle. You can achieve this regularity with the vitex fertility treatment option.

When I was going through fertility treatments, the first medication I was prescribed was Clomid. We tried the clomid alone which did not result in a pregnancy. After that, we tried Clomid with inseminations which failed as well. Although some women do benefit from Clomid, recent studies have questioned it's use, especially in women who aren't necessarily experiencing ovulatory problems (i.e. their infertility is unexplained or due to other factors).

As reported in the BBC News, in Scotland, a six month study done on 580 women with unexplained infertility. The results showed that 17% of the women who tried naturally became pregnant. Those on Clomid alone had a pregnancy rate of only 14% and those with inseminations had a rate of 23%. As you can see, trying naturally may actually be a better plan than taking Clomid.

Side-effects of Clomid

Clomid can lead to ovarian cysts and even hyperstimulation of the ovaries which, although rare, can

be life threatening. More commonly, women may experience mood swings, depression and even some visual side-effects. When I was taking Clomid, I called it “the week from hell” because it felt like my regular PMS but magnified by 100. Of course, if you are stimuating ovulation, and you do happen to conceive, the chance of having multiples increases which can lead to a number of pregnancy complications. Lastly, a study published in the journal "Human Reproduction" found a possible connection between Clomid and thyroid cancer. Although more study is needed, it worries me that I took these drugs without knowing all of these possible complications.

Why Clomid May Reduce The Chance Of Pregnancy

If you are taking Clomid, but not using inseminations, it actually may reduce the chance of pregnacy. Why? Clomid reduces estrogen which has a negative affect on cervical mucus. Optimal cervical mucus has an egg-white consistency. Clomid tends to make it thick. So, although you may be stimulating ovulation, you may not be able to take advantage of it since your mucus is not sperm friendly.

The Difference Between Sweet Potatoes and Yams

Many sources claim that yams can help you conceive twins. You may have heard that sweet potatoes or “yams” are good for fertility. Well, it's very true, the are! First let's clear up the confusion between yams and sweet potatoes. True yams (called Dioscorea) are not the ones you usually find in American grocery stores. They can be found in Africa and Asia and perhaps in some specialized grocery stores
Click here for our complete line of fertility jewelry
in the United States and elsewhere. I've looked for them in my local healthfood store and they didn't know what I was talking about. In some areas of the world where Dioscorea are readily available, women have a high rate of twins. These yams are thought to stimulate ovulation.

Since regular sweet potatoes or sometimes called “yams” (orange in color) are the most readily available, lets talk about the ways they may benefit fertility. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin C, B, and vitamin B6. These antioxidants protect against cell damage – your eggs may benefit, no matter how old they are. Sweet potatoes also have an anti-inflammatory affect in the body. They have a positive affect on blood sugar and they are high in fiber which helps to eliminate toxins. Most Americans eat sweet potatoes as part of their Thanksgiving meal, however, they're starting to show up in fast food restaurants as a substitute to the traditional “side of fries”. The only problem is that they may be cooked in unhealthy oils. This video shows how you can quickly and easily make your own sweet potato fries in 15 minutes:

Drinking tea is a good way to add herbs to your diet. There are many fertility teas on the market, but why not blend your own? Here are some of the common ingredients in fertility tea:

Chasteberry (also called vitex)

Chasteberry is supposed to have a positive affect on your FSH by increasing LH (and thereby decreasing FSH). High FSH (over 10) is considered to be an indication of ovarian failure. Chasteberry can also help if a woman has high prolactin levels. High prolactin can have a negative
Saints for Fertility Pendant Necklaces, click here
affect on fertility.

Green Tea

There are differing opinions about whether or not green tea can either help or harm fertility. Green tea has polyphenols and hypoxanthine which may be responsible for more viable embryos and possibly a greater chance of fertilization. Although green tea has caffeine, it is found in lesser amounts than other caffeinated beverages. On the downside, tannic acids in green tea may have a negative affect on a developing embryo and constrict blood vessel formation.
Read more about green tea and fertility here.

Red Raspberry Leaf Red Raspberry Leaf can promote fertility because it has a positive affect on uterine and pelvic muscle tone. Red Raspberry is also thought to lengthen your menstrual cycle by increasing the second half after ovulation.

Red Clover

Red Clover Tea may help clear out fallopian tubes, and may help regulate your cycles. It has phytoestrogens and can help with your body's pH which can make cervical mucus more sperm friendly.

Nettle Leaf

This tea is thought to strengthen the adrenal glands, uterus and hormones. It has chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals. It can help rid the body of toxins and it is thought to be especially good in women over 40.

Ladies Mantle

Ladies Mantle is thought to help tone the cervix and can also help regulate the menstrual cycle.

When you are ready to brew your tea, you can do it a couple of ways:

Because it helps with pelvic and uterine muscles, it is also beneficial in preparation of labor.

1. If you are using tea bags (pre-packaged tea), you can get a large tea brewing container and add all the teabags and brew together. If the teas have different brewing times on the package, use the one with the shortest brewing time. Once the tea is brewed, store it in the refrigerator and heat one cup at a time (or you can drink it iced). If it is too concentrated, you can dilute it down a bit with water.

2. If you are using loose tea, combine equal parts of the loose teas together in a bowl (then store in a glass container. When you are ready to have a cup of tea, get a tea ball and use about 1-2 teaspoons of the mixture per cup (6-8 oz). 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. Close the 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 tea. 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.

I had daily salads when I was trying to conceive. Not only are they great for your overall health, but there a number of vegetables that can enhance fertility by providing antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and other hormone regulating nutrients. They are also quick and easy to make because they don't require cooking. Read more:

Fertility Greek Coleslaw

Cut a head of purple (red) cabbage in half or thirds immediately before eating (don't cut ahead of time because this may damage some nutritional value - refrigerate the other half/third for left overs for use later)
Use a cheese shredder and shred the coleslaw as finely as possible (this make digestion a littler
Fertility Bracelets in our new fertility shop, click here
Add a little salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle a little olive oil on the coleslaw
Add vinegar or a vinagrette spritzer (most of these are very low in calories)

Dice a small tomato and add to the coleslaw
Add about 5 greek olives
Mix well and enjoy!

Fertility Salad Recipe

Start with red (purple) cabbage. This is a great hormone regulator because it is loaded with phytoestrogens and antioxidants. Cut it in half and save the rest for later. Shred about 1 cup with a cheese shredder as finely as possible. Raw cabbage can be a little hard to digest, so if it is shredded finely, it will help.

Cut up about 1/3 of a large cucumber. Cucumbers (especially the seeds) are considered a fertility enhancer in women.

Peel a ripe avocado, cut in half and discard the pit. Cut ½ of the avacado and save the rest for later. Avacados are a great source of the good fats and they can help enhance progesterone production and keep the balance between estrogen and progesterone.

Cut a tomato in half and cut into cube size pieces. Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene which can reduce inflammation and help with endometriosis.

Add about 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil (a great source of the good fats)

Add some balsamic vinegar if desired

Add salt and pepper to taste.

There are many foods that have hormone regulating properties. When I was trying to conceive, I jokingly said that I was on "vegetable therapy". If you think about it, it makes sense...much of what makes us infertile or hurts our egg quality are environmental factors and lifestyle choices. If you look at your diet day to day, how many vegetables (preferably organic) do you get in your diet? It is estimated that in the United States, only only 33% of people eat more than two fruits and vegetables per day and only 23% of people eat more than 3 per day. Is it any wonder why we are suffering from not only infertility, but a number of other health problems like obesity (which also contribute to infertility. So, if people are not eating fruits and vegetables, what are they eating? My guess is that there are a number of processed foods that are taking the place of healthy eating. These processed foods can contain GMOs (which are not labeled), trans-fats, flavor enhancers like MSG, and are probably packaged in plastic which can leach into the food causing estrogen imbalances.

Leafy green vegetables are one of the best kept secrets for women who are trying to enhance fertility
and regulate hormones. They are loaded with nutrients and they can help cleanse your body. Most people don't get enough vegetables to begin with and that is certainly true with leafy greens as well. When I was trying to conceive, I had to educate myself about how to prepare green vegetables.

Kale is a superfood which is great for overall health. It's high in a number of vitamins and minerals which help to detoxify the body. Kale is also a great source of iron and calcium which is important for follicular development. Kale can help reduce inflammation in the body.

Collard greens are also a nutritional powerhouse. They are high in fiber and essential nutrients all of which are good for fertility and hormone regulation.

When I was trying to conceive, I did drink some herbal teas and after I got pregnant, I drank mint flavored decaffeinated green tea. Since I had horrible morning sickness, coffee was out of the question and I thought green tea was a safe choice. The mint also helped to soothe my gag reflex and the warmth of the tea was somewhat helpful for the constant nausea. Since that time, I have come across some research about green tea and the pros and cons of drinking it during pregnancy and while trying to conceive. Even though I drank quite a bit of green tea (especially in the first trimester), I did not have any complications and had a normal pregnancy.

Some sources draw a correlation between drinking green tea and increased rates of conception, although this could possibly be attributed to green tea drinkers having healthier lifestyles. One widely cited study in The American Journal of Public Health reported that drinking 1½ cups or more of tea daily can double the odds of conception per cycle. However, this study did not specify what kind of tea the participants drank. Regular tea and green tea both have polyphenols and hypoxanthine which
Fertility Religious Necklace, Saint Rita click here
may be responsible for more viable embryos and possibly a greater chance of fertilization. Although green tea has caffeine, it is found in lesser amounts than other caffeinated beverages (but I would recommend drinking decaffeinated). On the downside, in pregnancy, some sources claim green tea may possibly increase the chance of pregnancy loss because the tannins could have a negative effect on a developing embryo by constricting blood vessel formation (although I was unable to find scientific research to support an association between green tea and pregnancy loss). The tannins may also interfere with iron absorption. Since green tea has a number of health benefits unrelated to fertility, I included it in my diet. I drank mint flavored decaffeinated green tea when I was experiencing morning sickness after I conceived my daughter (this was before I knew of any possible association with miscarriage), but obviously it didn’t hurt my pregnancy.

Wheatgrass has recently gained in popularity and is showing up in juice bars everywhere. When I think of wheatgrass, I think of cows grazing in a pasture, but it's a great food for people too. So why is wheatgrass so good for fertility? Here are some reasons:
Fertile Turtle Bracelet, click here
It is a high alkaline food. You need a balanced pH level so that your body is sperm friendly. Wheatgrass also contains folic acid. Folic acid has been found to prevent neural tube defects and it's recommended that women who are trying to conceive take folic acid BEFORE they try to get pregnant. Wheatgrass also enhances men's fertility because it is high in antioxidants. Sperm are actually very fragile creatures. Men who have a diet high in antioxidants can protect their sperm from free radical damage due to environmental factors. Wheatgrass is known to purify the blood and tonify the liver and kidneys for detoxification. There are also external ways to use wheatgrass, for example, did you know you could bathe in it? As odd as that sounds, you can add some wheatgrass juice to your bath water and soak for 1/2 hour. This is thought to disinfect the skin and it is actually reported
to increase your red blood cells. It is also great if you have itchy skin or body odor. Read more about the benefits of wheatgrass:

What's So Good About Wheatgrass?
Guest Post By Michael D. Byrne Until about 5 or so years ago, I had never heard of wheatgrass. Then it seemed to crop up everywhere (if you'll pardon the pun). It took another couple of years before I actually started looking into it and I found

some interesting information.Firstly, what is wheatgrass? It is simply germinated or sprouted wheat - preferably organic. Once sprouting takes place valuable enzymes are activated in the grain. The sprouts can be eaten and the enzymes then work in the body to aid digestions, provide energy, neutralise toxins and cleanse the blood. Wheatgrass can also be juiced and the juice consumed to provide water, oxygen, enzymes, protein, phytochemicals, chlorophyll, carotenoids, fatty acids, and trace elements.
Wheatgrass has a history going back over 5000 years but it was really in the 1930's that it became popular in the West. An American agricultural chemist, Dr. Charles F Schnabel, noted that ailing hens fed fresh, young wheatgrass recovered quickly. They also grew faster and had double the fertility compared with healthy hens fed standard diets. This discovery became the impetus for a lifetime of research into the reason for this amazing result. Others have researched wheatgrass and have published studies to show its tremendous benefit for maintaining health and vitality.
Wheatgrass juice is very high in fresh chlorophyll which has been shown to aid liver function, remove toxins, and boost the immune system. One of the benefits of chlorophyll is that it is similar to hemin which is a component of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the protein that in human that carries oxygen to the cells. The main difference between chlorophyll and hemin is that while hemin is based on iron, chlorophyll is based on magnesium. Experiments carried out on severely anemic rabbits showed that when given chlorophyll they made a rapid return to a normal blood count.
In addition to anemia, chlorophyll has been shown to benefit the heart, the lymphatic systems, the vascular system, the intestines, lungs, and glands. It can also assist in lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, lower acidity and help treat and prevent cancer. And chlorophyll is just one component of wheatgrass.
Because it contains 8 essential amino acids, 80 identified enzymes and a range of vitamins and minerals in wheatgrass is often called a complete food. Research studies have shown that it contains powerful anti-cancer agents: the chlorophyll, antioxidants, abscisic acid, and the 80 enzymes. Its alkalising action helps balance the body's pH and move it from the cancer inducing acid state caused by our consumption of so many processed, sugary and fatty foods.
While fresh is best, most of us probably don't have time to grow and juice wheatgrass so it is available as shots, powders and tablets from a variety of suppliers. Wheatgrass is certainly a worthwhile addition to your diet. Wheatgrass has so many benefits it should be part of a daily diet.

The reason it's called “progesterone” is because it is “pro-gestation” or it supports a pregnancy.

Women with low progesterone may experience miscarriage or recurrent miscarriage because their body cannot sustain their uterine lining long enough to nuture their baby. During the menstrual cycle, progesterone typically is highest during ovulation. If the egg that ovulates is not fertilized, progesterone falls and estrogen rises causing the women to get her period.

Things that can cause low progesterone:
Fertility Jewelry, click here
1. Stress – stress causes an increase in cortisol and through a chain reaction will decrease in progesterone – this is one reason women are told to reduce their stress levels if they want to conceive

2. An over production of estrogen can cause estrogen dominance which can throw the delicate balance of estrogen and progesterone out of whack

3. Age - Some hormones decrease as women get older

4. Adrenal fatigue – this can occur from stress, poor diet, and lack of sleep, exposure to toxins, long illnesses and even a low fat diet. The adrenal glands are involved with the production of hormones, if they aren't functioning at full capacity, this will affect your progesterone production.

Natural Ways To Increase Progesterone

1. Nuts like almonds and seeds like sunflower seed can help your body increase progesterone naturally. Be sure you buy unroasted nuts and seeds as roasting can spoil the beneficial oils. You should look for them in the refrigerated section of your health food store.

2. Vitamin B6

3. Avacados – These are an excellent source of something called plant sterols. Plant sterols help to create a balance between estrogen and progesterone which will help with estrogen dominance.

4. Natural Progesterone Cream – This can be found at your local health food store. Look for 480mg USP progesterone per oz.

5. Leafy Green Vegetables – These contain magnesium which will help your body manufacture progesterone naturally.

Chakras for Life and Fertility

First, lets define what a chakra is...the word comes from Sanskrit and means wheel or vortex. A chakra is thought to be part of the non-physical body through which the life force moves. Although there are hundreds, usually the focus is on the 7 main chakras which we will discuss here. These 7 chakras go from the top of the head (crown) to the bottom or base of the spine. It is believed that each chakra vibrates at the rate of a particular color. There are also natural stones and crystals that vibrate with the chakras. We will start with the base and move our way up.
Sacral Chakra Fertility Bracelet in our new fertility shop click here

Chakra #1 Root Chakra

This is located at the base of your spine. The color associated color is red. This chakra is associated with the adrenals and our survival instinct and may be key in our stress levels as well as our "fight or flight response. The stone associated with the root chakra is Hematite.

Chakra #2 Sacral Chakra (Fertility Chakra)

The sacral chakra is thought to vibrate with the color orange. It is the chakra associated with the ovaries in women and the testicles in men. Therefore, this chakra is key for fertility. This chakra can
also govern our creativity and our enthusiasm. Carnelian is the stone that resonates with the sacral chakra. See the orange box above for more on Carnelian.
Women can care for their sacral chakra by doing yoga poses that open up the hip and sacral area (see more on Fertility Bodywork here).
Women can also care for their sacral chakra by dealing with past trauma surrounding relationships, sexual trama and the pain and distress over past miscarriages See also: How to have a memorial service for your lost baby through miscarriage.

Chakra #3 Solar Plexus Chakra

This chakra is associated with the digestive system and vibrates with the color yellow. The stomach, small intestine and liver are connected to this chakra. The Solar Plexus Chakra may also contribute to fear and anxiety if out of balance. On the upside, it can help with feelings of personal growth and power. The stone associated with the solar plexus is Yellow Avertine.

Chakra #4 Heart Chakra

This chakra is called the heart chakra and vibrates in two ways. The lower heart chakra vibrates with the color green and the higher heart chakra vibrates with the color pink (pink is opposite on the color wheel from green). The organs of the body associated with this chakra are of course the heart, but also the breasts, thymus, immune system and circulatory system. This chakra can help with love and compassion. The stone associated wth the heart chakra is green avertine and pink (or rose) quartz.

The EPA estimates that the average American has at least 400 toxic compounds in their body! Here are some ways to help you body detoxify especially if you are trying to enhance your fertility and prepare your body for pregnancy:

It has been estimated that your egg quality is determined up to three months before ovulation. So the time is now to start detoxifying.



Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. Psyllium is used
Fertility Bracelets, Customize your stone and charm! Click here
as a laxative and is found in many over the counter preparations. I've been taking psyllium for years. The recommended dose is about a tablespoon, but you need to drink plenty of water afterwards because it expands and you will want to flush it out. Psyllium has been associated with lowering cholesteral and blood sugar regulation as well. I just feel better when I have a lot of fiber in my diet. There's something cathartic about emptying your colon. You feel lighter and it has to have a detoxifying affect to rid yoursel of the organisms and intestinal contents. I usually take psyllium after meals, but it can also help you eat less over a day because it makes you feel full longer.

Water, Water, Water

I know there have been some stories in the media about how it’s a myth that you need 8 glasses of water a day – I don’t believe it and neither do plenty of experts who say just the opposite. Much has been written about the critical role water plays in almost all bodily functions and I think it was an essential piece of my successful pregnancy. Water helps to keep your bowels regular. You don’t want toxic substances building up in your system by getting constipated (eating fruits and vegetables will help with this too). If you’re dehydrated, your cervical/vaginal fluids will not be the right consistency for sperm to swim upstream. Your fallopian tubes need to be properly lubricated for the egg to travel down. It just makes sense if you don’t have enough hydration, everything is going to be dried out. You want to get in the habit of drinking lots of water now because you’ll want to continue this when you’re pregnant. When I was pregnant I drank between 64-80oz of water per day and I always had a good volume of amniotic fluid (there is a special test they do to measure amniotic fluid – it looks somewhat like an ultrasound machine). The nurse would always say “I’ll bet you drink a lot of water” because my test results always looked good. In Ayurvedic medicine, there is a practice of drinking water the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach called “Usha Paana Chikitsa”. This is thought to help cleanse the colon and purify the blood. The body is better able to absorb nutrients after this process. This is thought to help with a number of conditions including infertility. You should not consume alcoholic beverages the night before and you should not eat anything for one hour after drinking the water. Sources on this recommend 5-6 glasses of water upon waking, however, I am hesitant to recommend this amount all at once since too much water too quickly can overload your kidneys. I frequently did (and still do) drink a couple of glasses of water first thing in the morning.

Detoxification Bath With Epsom Salt

I have also taken Epsom salt baths. Not only are baths very relaxing which can help with stress, Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) are thought to have a number of detoxifying and health promoting properties. The salts draw out toxins. Epsom salt baths are also thought to facilitate insulin transport, absorbtion of nutrients, regulation of enzymes, reduction of inflammation and reduction of muscle cramps, they aide with tissue and protein production, and they reduce headaches like migraines.

To take your Epsom salt bath:

Draw your bath water to your desired temperature, add 2 cups of Epsom salt while the water is running. Do not eat before your bath, but drink water before and after.


A type of blue-green algae, the Aztecs discovered spirulina thousands of years ago and soon made it a staple in their diet. Now days, spirulina is considered a “superfood.” Spirulina contains chlorophyll which is used for “detoxification” by helping remove toxins such as heavy metals and other pollutants from the circulatory system. Spirulina is available in powdered form and it usually comes with recipes for smoothies and cooking suggestions. The benefits of spirulina include:

Spirulina is a protein rich food which is needed for hormone production and high egg quality

Spirulina is high in the beneficial omega 3's which not only help with hormone production, but they have an overall anti-inflammatory affect on the body

Spirulina has chlorophyll which helps to detoxify the body. It can bind with heavy metals to remove them.

Spirulina is high in iron which has been shown to help with fertility and is very important should you become pregnant

Spirulina is high in B vitamins including folic acid which you should start taking before becoming pregnant to reduce the chance of birth defects

Spirulina is high in calcium which is important for pregnancy (it can have 26 times the amount of calcium in milk!)

Healing stones for Spiritual and Physical Detoxification

Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and promotes spiritual protection, purification and

Can I get pregnant with high FSH is a common question. Many women over the age of 40 have been told that their "FSH" levels are on the high side. Usually, fertility doctors want the FSH to be under 10. However, there are recorded cases of women getting pregnant with their own eggs with FSH levels that were even over 100!
For example, The Oxford Journals Human Reproduction reported on three cases of women who had successful pregnancies with their own eggs with FSH levels that would be considered "off the chart" and most doctors would have only given them the option of donor eggs. In one case, a 46 year old got pregnant with an FSH of 22. The other cases in the report were a 36 year old with an FSH of 143 and a 35 year old with an FSH of 105.

After I discontinued fertility treatments, I never had my FSH checked because I didn't want more discouraging information clouding my mindset. I knew I was going to get pregnant even if the odds

were against me. But what if your levels are higher than the recommended numbers? This article and video below explains what you can do naturally to lower your FSH.
High FSH Levels
Guest Post By Mina D Craig
Are you having trouble getting pregnant? Did your doctor tell you it was because your FSH levels are too high? Here is an alternative natural way to balance your FSH levels, to help you increase ovulation. and to conceive naturally.
FSH is released by the pituitary gland, and it starts a chain reaction. The hormone goes to the ovaries through your blood, and causes your ovarian follicles to grow and develop. Once the follicle has grown enough, it releases an egg (ovum) that will head down the tubes for fertilization. The ovarian follicles release hormones also, and these tell the pituitary gland to stop sending FSH.

Sometimes, the follicles don't get the message, they don't respond to the FSH. So the pituitary gland repeats the message, and repeats it again and again until the follicles say we got the message. Thus high FSH levels. If your young the medical reason could be premature ovarian failure, if your a little further in age it could be called menopause.
The follicles within the ovaries can not respond timely for several reasons, but some causes are more common. For those whose age is considered by doctors to be mature the common problem is not enough blood flow to the ovaries themselves. FSH is a hormone that travels through the blood steam, so not enough blood to the ovaries means the message is not getting through and the follicles are not getting stimulated.
The most dangerous and alarming results of the elevated FSH level, is deprived quality of eggs because for healthy and normal growth of follicles oxygen, nutrients and hormones are required. At this stage if you try to conceive it increases the rate of miscarriage and defects during birth of the child and sometimes medicines and IVFs also do not work for elderly mothers.
You must be wondering about the natural solution for increased FSH level and improvement of the egg quality.
Acupressure Massage. You might think because ovaries are inside that massage wont help, but it can. Acupressure massage can help increase blood flow, getting nutrients, oxygen and hormones to where they are needed, helping to get hormones back in balance. There are many things that you can do to help get the blood flowing, yoga is one that can also help all your reproductive parts, and help you get ready for the big b-day too. You can also do brisk walking to help get the blood going.

Another option is cleaning out your body to remove any chemicals that are affecting your eggs and your hormones. Body cleansing can help you by removing xenoestrogens, which can wreak havoc causing ovulation and menstruation disorders, and keeping your hormones out of whack. You can also try "FerilPlus", its completely organic, all natural and contains herbs scientifically proven to increase your chances of getting pregnant. It will help balance your hormones to get you back on track.
Salt intake has to be reduced because salt can result in dehydration and puts the kidneys under a lot of pressure. In Chinese medicine, hormonal balance has been attributed to the kidneys. Kidneys can also be taken care of by reducing caffeine intake.
A healthy diet of foods that are of an organic nature is vital to ensure your body has all the nutrients it needs for fertility. A person cannot, however, get all the needed vitamins and minerals without nutritional supplements. Nutritional supplements are best when made from real food extracts. When made from real food extracts, the supplements would be easily digestible and can be easily assimilated by the body. My clients who use "AntioxiPlus" and "AllkaGreens Plus" have always come back with fantastic results.
