Fertlity Foods : Helpful in Fertility Treatment
The standard American diet known as, S.A.D – is very sad to say the least. Modern day produce and food is usually processed to death and lacking vital minerals and nutrients your body needs to be well and stay well. It is no wonder why folks are becoming sicker and sicker every day. Oftentimes, we ignore the signals our bodies are giving us when something is malfunctioning when what you put into your body is something you have the most control over.
Much like deficiencies in vitamin D, iodine and magnesium we see infertility in what I could consider epidemic proportions. With so many new cases being diagnosed each and every day and the defeated look families have from coping with this problem, it is heart wrenching. With problems like infertility, which involves a breakdown in the body, nutrition plays a significant role in repair. The things you allow into your body should be considered very carefully, as they have lasting effects and consequences. Make healthier choices and you will undoubtedly have a healthier body.
Health Concerns with today’s diet
- Increased GMO foods (genetically modified)
- Food grown in soil devoid of nutrients
- Conventional produce laden with pesticides and herbicides
- Conventional dairy full of antibiotics and growth hormones.
Nutrition Considerations for Infertility Treatment
Eat real food
Please remember the single best improvement you can make on your health is in the food you put into your body. You will not be or get healthy eating off the dollar menu at Fast Food restaurants. Their quality of meat and food sources are extremely questionable. Eat real foods, stay away from food opened from a wrapper. Organic is best whenever possible. If using conventional, please was fruits and veggie soap to clean them first before consumption.
Increase the following foodstuffs recommended by Expert Dr. Skip, Dallas :
- Nuts: Almonds, Walnuts
- Hemp seeds
- Coconut oil
- Chia seeds
- Whey protein
- Green leafy vegetables: Chard, Spinach, Kale
- Beets and beet greens
- Bee pollen
- Apple cider vinegar
- Black rice and butter
- Ghee is good too, if you are familiar
Stay hydrated and drink plenty of clean, filtered water. Coconut water is also very good for hydration. I advise my patients to discontinue use of all carbonated beverages except sparkling mineral water and to stay away from drinks with artificial sweeteners.
Green drinks and smoothies are essential to regain/maintain proper health, body pH and alkalinity. If you can’t make smoothies yourself in the fancy blender then here is an alternative click here. Drastically increasing the consumption of dark leafy green vegetables is a must. Blending in a Blendtec or Vitamix is preferred.
Avoid bad fats
NO MARGARINE and NO non-organic butter what-so-ever. Throw it away if it is in your fridge. Margarine is virtually plastic and of no value nutritionally. It does not offer any support in losing weight or dropping cholesterol levels. We recommend the use of organic, salted butter and coconut oil. Do make sure you are getting enough good fats. Avocados are loaded with lots of good stuff. You will NOT and I repeat WILL NOT gain weight from eating them.
Remember to avoid and minimize the following:
- Artificial sweeteners
- All dairy (especially non-organic)
- Food preservatives
- Food dyes
- GMO foods
- Trans fats
As a rule of thumb – If you can’t pronounce it, you should not put it in your body.
