Infertility And Your Diet
Infertility and your diet
If you have been touched by anyone having trouble with conception, than you will understand the challenges this can face on relationships.
One in six Australian couples has difficulty conceiving and the effect it has can be devastating. In both cases the issue can be with the female or male, contributing around 80% of the cause of infertility.
Causes of Infertility
- Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Supporting fertility can be a combination of hormone balance and weight loss. The use of nutrition supplements such as Vitex angus-castus have been shown to aid in fertility by reducing levels of prolactin.
Oestrogen excess has also been shown to cause endometriosis and fertility problems. Reducing levels of oestrogen can be achieved by increasing the fibre content of the diet and using probiotics to help normalise Gastro-intestinal health.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which is caused by the excess of androgens (male) hormones can be treated with a low GI diet.
There has also been a study linking high trans fat and reduced dairy intake to increasing rates of infertility. If you would like to look at your diet to help with improving fertility, you can call me on 1300 630 883
