Fertility challenges affect one in eight couples. The diagnosed challenges are divided into thirds: 1/3 due to female partner, 1/3 due to the male partner, and 1/3 due to a combination or is unexplained. The diagnosis of infertility is based on one year of unprotected sex without conception.
The good news is that there is so much a couple can do to enhance fertility naturally. The greatest success we have had with assisting couples to become pregnant revolves around enhancing liver detoxification. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver is considered the gland of hormone harmonization (among other things). The mere fact that we live in an ever accumulating toxic world is at the core of infertility. In many cases, having the couple perform a detoxification protocol and maintaining a healthy lifestyle following is enough. The maintenance is simply healthy nutrition with enhanced detoxification using one drink of Complete Detoxification daily with added glutathione from a supplement called Recancostat. We have actually seen Recancostat enhance the volume of sperm in men. There are other glutathione formulations available, yet this one has been the most successful in our practice. Prenatal vitamins for women are essential and our Prenatal Forte contains extra liver support. The active ingrerdient in vitamin E is tocopherol, which literally translates to “fertility” in latin. The last basic nutritional enhancement supplement we suggest is an essential fatty acid formula completely free of mercury with high absorption, cold pressed and free of chemical stabilizers and additives.
The other aspect of fertility that cannot go without exploration is the symbology of the pelvic cavity, which has been named “the flow chakra”. Literally, we see blood flow from this body part during menstruation, as well as the flow of urine in both men and women. When infertility has become a couple’s diagnosis, fear sets in, which disrupts the natural flow of life. This is well understood, but must be nurtured in a way to enhance the journey as well as the outcome.
