Infertility and fertility issues is a rising problem in today’s society. This is the unknown fact that in most of the cases, the body can reverse infertility naturally if the body is given the correct resources.

What are the causes of infertility:

Infertility issues or problems are caused by number of factors from lifestyle to medical conditions like Hormone Imbalance, Endometriosis, Anovulatory Cycles, physical blockage, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, inadequate hormone production, lack of luteinizing hormone, high levels or prolactin, short luteal phase and many other factors contributing to making person infertile.

How to Reverse Infertility:

Reversing infertility is the system used when working with women on fertility basics, but it is also very useful for helping with PMSing, fatigue, heavy periods, cramping and other hormone related problems. Reverse infertility is designed to address all the issues that are contributing the physical inability to conceive or to get pregnant.

1. Nutrition:

Nutrition is by far the most important step in this phase. In modern times or in recent times, many people are undernourished, despite being overweight or obese. The undernourished body simply will not allow conception or will not support a pregnancy to occur or a pregnancy to continue if it doesn’t have the basic foundation it needs in the body to sustain a pregnancy. You can try conceiving until you are not sure that you are infertile, for this keep tracking your ovulation period and know the ovulationsymptoms. Many women switch to a low-fat, high-fiber diet in an attempt to lose weight and increase health. Weight loss and maintained BMI has been shown to increase fertility, but losing weight to an extent that body is not ready to hold the baby for next 9 months in this way is rarely effective for increasing fertility because it deprives the body of the necessary fats and proteins that are necessary for hormone production. You can try conceiving until you are not sure that you are infertile, for this keep tracking your ovulation period and know the ovulation symptoms

Some nutritional ways to help optimize fertility:

1- Remove or avoid processed foods, sugars processed grains, and starches from the diet. Obtain more nutrient dense carbohydrates from fresh vegetables, some fruits or berries and starchy sources like sweet potatoes and squashes.

2- Increase healthy fats in the diet and especially from sources like coconuts, olive oil, butter, grass-fed meats, coconut oil, olives and eggs, avocado or nuts.

3- Get enough protein in your diet especially from grass-fed meats, eggs, and nuts. This is very important during pregnancy as an adequate protein can help minimize the risk of certain pregnancy complications.

4- Eat a lot of fresh vegetables, especially green leafy varieties like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard lettuce, chard, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and similar veggies.

Each woman is born with millions of immature eggs that wait to be released, normally one at a time, every month. A poor diet can disturb ovulation and can prevent pregnancy. We must eat healthy and nutritious food for the proper growth and development of eggs.

Ultrasound can detect uterine abnormalities such as fibroids and polyps, distal fallopian tube occlusion and ovarian abnormalities including ovarian cysts. These are some of the medical issues that cause infertility in women.
