Natural Fertility Diet

Treating Infertility with a Healthy Diet:

This nutritional program (your natural fertility diet) is based on the logic that the real magic bullets for reversing infertility and gaining health and vitality are in nutritional components found in foods, not pharmaceuticals (chemical, herbal or botanical formulas). We now know scientifically that nutrients found in foods can help prevent nearly all the common degenerative diseases that strike us today. Following this program can really make a difference for you.

“You have your own individual potential for health,” says Udo Erasmus, in his book, Fats that Heal - Fats that Kill. Erasmus also explains that there are at least four reasons we can rely on ourselves to find a natural nutritional cure for infertility through the foods we eat and that we are not to expect pharmaceutical drugs or even natural herbal and botanical formulas to accomplish our health goals.

 1- Health is a natural state.

 • Internally, our optimum health possibility is determined by our genetic makeup, which includes complex and               sophisticated digestive, absorptive, constructive, maintaining, metabolic, protective, and healing mechanisms.               Because individuals differ genetically, optimal health is also somewhat different for each individual.

 

 • Externally, health is determined by the natural environment, which provides:

 a. the surroundings (setting);

 b. the building blocks from which our body is constructed and continuously reconstructed; and

 c. toxic substances that can interfere with processes that underlie health and healing (p. 414).

 2- Our body is made from foods, water, air, and light energy.

The key to effective primary health care and reversing infertility is found in living as we would live, if we were in an ideal natural setting, where foods are fresh, alive, raw, sun-ripened, locally grown, in season, and pesticide-free. Water is clean. Air is clean. Light is full-spectrum sunlight.

• From foods, water, and air, our body must derive 50+ essential factors to function in a healthy way, factors our bodies cannot make from other substances. These include 20 or 21 minerals; 13 vitamins; 8 to 11 essential amino acids; 2 essential fatty acids; water; air; light; and a source of energy (usually carbohydrates).


• Processing removes essential nutrients from foods and may also destroy nutrients or change them into toxic substances. Deficiencies of essential nutrients and toxicity in foods have both been documented in processed foods (p.414).

3. Infertility is a departure from health.

A departure from health is a departure from the ideal natural state, internally, externally, or both.

• The most common causes of infertility include malnutrition, (deficiency of essential substances or nutrient imbalances) and internal pollution (interfering substances such as pollutants, heavy metals, drugs, metabolic waste products, toxins produced by yeast, and toxins made in our body as a result of allergic reactions).


4. Infertility may be reversed by changing the diet you are eating.

• Reversal of infertilitty caused by malnutrition and internal pollution requires improved nutrition and detoxification.

• Nutrition can be improved by the consumption of whole foods, fresh vegetables juices, super food supplements and food concentrates.


Important guiding principle for a healthier body:

It should be kept in mind that the best natural fertility diet is one where you consume only original foods, or foods modified minimally, instead of consuming isolated or synthetic compounds (i.e., single amino acids, single essential fatty acids, vitamins or minerals). From foods, our bodies must derive all 50+ essential nutrients, on a daily basis, to function in a healthy way. Deficiency of any of these essential nutrients can lead to degenerative processes.


It’s difficult to define the impact of a particular nutrient on any specific disease. The reason is that nutrients work together synergistically, not separately, to improve physiological function, and help the body defend itself against degeneration.

For example, it has been scientifically proven through clinical research that individuals with infertility appear to have deficiencies in an important nutrient such as vitamin A which support and maintain epithelial cell integrity. Most holistic doctors will prescribe for you a single isolated vitamin A supplement. I, on the other hand, will recommend that you get your vitamin A from a food source instead. The following will explain why I recommend that our nutrients always come from a food source.

Synthetic Vitamin A: 

Synthetic vitamin A gives you only one form of vitamin A rather than the group of vitamins occurring naturally in a food. In nature, vitamin A is divided into two distinct groups, classified as A-1 and A-2. The A-1 group consists of the performed vitamins that are found in the body. They include retinol, retinal, retinoic acid, and the retinyl esters. In the A-2 group, you will find the dehydroretinal and dehydroretinyl esters. When a manufacturer synthesizes a single chemical structure such as a retinol or beta carotene to take the place of this whole family, there is no way that they can be “just the same” as the vitamin A in its’ natural source. It is only a “chemical identification”. 

Regarding beta-carotene, for example, foods contain several forms of beta-carotene itself as well as many other carotenes and other interrelated nutrients. Most supplements contain only one form of beta-carotene, a synthetic, chemically-pure form. Large amounts of a single form could interfere with the absorption, transport, or utilization of other forms of beta-carotene and other carotenoids. 


The toxicity of synthetic vitamin A is well known. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dry skin, hair loss, headaches, fatigue, loss of appetite, dry or sore lips, bone abnormalities, joint pain, liver, spleen, or lymph node enlargement, reduced thyroid activity, blurred vision and edema.


Natural Vitamin A: 

Vitamin A is a whole family of compounds, including retinol, retinal, retinoids, carotenes, and carotenoids, and always occurs in nature with synergists such as fatty acids, chlorophyll, other vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and trace elements. Scientists have identified more than 600 carotenoids so far, and are beginning to realize and admit that “there appears to be a biological relationship between all these carotenoids.” Humans need all these related nutrients as found in foods in their natural forms. A synthetic fraction such as beta carotene is not a vitamin in the body; it is only a “chemical identification” on a shelf because it is so labeled and sold.


Goals of this nutritional natural fertility diet program:

• This program will help you adjust your diet. I want to draw attention to the word “adjust” here, because it means a “process”, not an “event”. You will not be looking for a sudden “event” that just dramatically shifts your health. Healing is a process that your body will take you through, as you make gradual adjustments. You’re going to adjust your eating as you go along, fine tune it, in other words, until you achieve the results you seek. I will be guiding and coaching you all along this nutritional healing diet free of charge.


• Since you will be seeking health, not avoiding illness, your journey is similar to a treasure hunt. If you feel yourself trying to improve your health, or if you find yourself motivated by fear rather than hope, you’ve lost your way. I want to invite you to be a part of your body’s awesome process to become healthy and learning little treasures along the way, instead of avoiding perceived “dangers” you think your body may be carrying.


• This natural fertility diet program will help you seek to balance your foods in order to balance your body. Balance means a coupling of opposites, like breathing in and breathing out. All-natural systems exist by such polarities, and infertility is a sign that one of the opposites has become too dominant, and the other too weak. (The concept of balancing acid and alkaline foods is an example of this). So with this diet you will balance the properties and functions of your foods in order to balance the properties and functions of your body.


• You don’t have to jump into this natural fertility diet program with both feet all at once. If you choose, you may slowly change your way of living and diet to that which is health- producing in your own time-frame. You may set up one, two-or-five-year health goals. Take your time, as your body begins detoxifying and healing, it will become easier and more enjoyable to follow life enhancing health practices with your diet.

• Last, but not least, I hope that you will keep “diet” in perspective. Please remember that food is not all there is to life. I would like this natural fertility diet program to be pleasing to your taste buds, not just health promoting. I would like a commitment from you, but not to take yourself too seriously. I hope you anchor yourself in these guiding principles, yet try to be flexible, open-minded, and wise. And if you feel you have “failed” from time to time, just count your mistakes as information, not as defeat or as a cause of guilt. Following this natural fertility diet is a happy journey that will be full of challenging times, some doubts, moments of victory followed by days, months and then a lifetime of health and vitality and a infertility-free life!
