What causes infertility?

There are so many different factors that contribute to infertility which is why it’s important to seek a wellness coach to find out the best natural path for you. Most of the time, the cause is related to hormone imbalances, polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, anovulatory cycles, blockages, or many other lifestyle factors.

When you can find the underlying root cause of your health issues and treat them with the correct nutrition and customized herbal products you can inspire your body’s profound ability to heal itself.

How to heal infertility naturally

Before you try investing in expensive fertility treatments, trust your body to heal itself naturally. With modern American diets, the solution is often a simple diet and lifestyle change. Even for those of us who eat a relatively healthy diet, our bodies are undernourished because the basis of our diets has low nutrient and good fat content. Optimizing our diets for fertility includes things like removing grains, processed foods, sugars, and starches. Increasing healthy fats from nutrient dense sources like coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado helps our bodies to absorb necessary vitamins. The majority of our diets should be plant based with proteins from hormone free, grass fed meats and fish. Also important is drinking enough water to sustain your body.

For many women, dietary changes alone will create the momentum within your body to become fertile. Sustaining these changes will create a healthy pregnancy as well.

You might also require a change in lifestyle. Eliminating bad habits like smoking, drug use, caffeine, and high stress levels can certainly affect your abilities to become pregnant. Lack of exercise, overexposure to toxins, and many medications also negatively affect the chances of conceiving.

For women who have sustained the necessary lifestyle and diet changes, supplementation is also a helpful resolution. Custom herbal supplements have helped women for centuries across the world. Whether taken in capsule, tincture, or tea form, herbal supplements can be the extra nudge in the right direction towards fertility. Vitamin supplements may also be necessary depending on your individual body chemistry.
