DO YAMS REALLY HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

http://getpregnantover40.com/sweet-potatoes-for-fertility.htmCertain Types of Yams May Lead To More Twin Births

We all know that there are more twins nowadays with the use of fertility drugs.
However, it was recently reported that in an area in Nigeria the incidence of twins is quite common.
No one knows exactly why, but one possibility is that their diet is quite high in yams. Based on previous research I have done, the yams which may stimulate ovulation are not the kind you eat on
Thanksgiving, They are a variety called "Dioscorea villosa". 
When I was trying to conceive, I looked for these yams (Dioscorea villosa) at every health food store

in my area and I couldn't find them (when I asked, they looked at me like I was speaking Greek). Perhaps they are more common in other areas around the US and the world.
Even though Thanksgiving sweet potatoes aren't famous for producing twins, they are extremely good for fertility due to their nutrients.  Here is the article about
sweet potatoes for fertility:

http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-rita-for-fertility.htm
Click here for Saint Rita Pendant
I have readers from all over the world with many different belief systems, but one of the most popular pages on my website is "Saints to pray to for fertility and protection of pregnancy"(click here).
Two of the most popular are Saint Gerard and Saint Rita,
I have pages devoted to both of these saints along with prayers (links to these pages above)
These saints are part of the Catholic belief system, but do you have to be Catholic to pray to saints?  No..around the world, people are taught prayers and the Rosary even though they may not have been brought up Catholic or Christian. They report finding peace and comfort in these prayers. It is thought to be not just a benefit to them, but to the entire world.
It is usually recommended to read up on the life of a saint, so you understand their history and why they have reached sainthood. Stay calm and focused and find a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. You can use the prayers on the links above, or compose your own prayer in your own words. Speak from your heart.

AMETHYST, MOONSTONE, FERTILITY CRYSTALS TO DETOXIFY

Healing Stones for Fertility

One of the reasons I started offering my line of fertility jewelry is because I wholeheartedly believe in the power of natural stones and the healing power of the earth.  So how does fertility jewelry work?
Different stones target different parts of the body and/or bodily functions and processes. These natural stones and crystals have "earth energy" and when it combines with our body's energy, healing occurs. Crystals and stones vibrate at their own frequency just like the cells in our body vibrate at their own frequency. When the cells in our body come in contact with the stone's frequency, energetic changes occur. These changes can create a third and larger energetic field. The body's nervous system senses these changes and sends the information to the brain. The brain triggers biochemical healing within the body. It's similar to getting back to nature. When people are stressed and out of balance, it's frequently recommended to engage in "earthing". This is where you have your body come in direct contact with the earth by walking barefoot on sand or grass or just sitting directly on the ground. These healing stones allow you to have a natural earth object with you at all times.

Amethyst and Moonstone are particularly helpful for detoxification:

Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and promotes spiritual protection, purification and physical detoxification. Low-level heat that radiates from the Amethyst can promote antioxidant activity in the body. This crystal increases energy levels in the body and as a result promotes the healthy growth of new cells. Moonstone works to assist in the elimination of toxins and helps your body utilize nutrients. It also works with your energy to cleanse your chakras of negativity.

FENG SHUI: CAN IT HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Elephant, Amethyst, Moonstone, Rose Quartz Bracelet
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

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...

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

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."
