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.

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:

CAH (congenital adrenal hyperplasia), a common yet often overlooked condition that can lead to infertility and a host of perplexing symptoms  — a hormone deficiency that leads to excess production

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.

"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
Kokopelli fertility bracelet, Moonstone, Rose Quartz
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
Click here for chakra fertility jewelry
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:

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?
