8 Foods That Increase Fertility In Women

pregnant-woman-nutrition

We live in a world with some amazing medical and technological advancements, but many people often overlook the simplest and most natural solutions. While it may seem more like an old wives’ than medical advice, certain foods can influence a woman’s ability to become pregnant.

 

Diet influences your overall health, which means that eating the wrong foods can increase a woman’s chances of infertility. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly one in ten women will experience infertility, with an unhealthy diet being high on the list of probable causes. Keep in mind that infertility can also stem from health issues like PCOS, hormonal imbalance, and endometriosis. To increase fertility, women should incorporate the following foods into their diet.

 

Berries:

Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries contain anti-inflammatory phytonutrients that help boost female and male fertility. Much like citrus fruits, berries are high in vitamin C and folate, both of which aid healthy fetal development. Try to consume at least one cup of berries a day.

 

Quinoa:

It can be hard to choose which carbs you should eat. It is best to opt for whole grains, but the best source of healthy gluten-free carbs is quinoa. Not only is quinoa high in fiber, but it is also rich in zinc, folate, and protein. Swapping animal proteins for plant-based proteins like quinoa can increase your odds for conception. Complex carbs also help to regulate a woman’s cycle, making it easier to pinpoint peak fertile days.

 

Don’t Overdo It On Botanicals:

While it is beneficial to limit caffeine consumption and focus on herbal teas, it is integral to know what herbs to avoid. A lot of fertility problems can be attributed to too many botanicals in your diet. If you are trying to get pregnant, you should avoid ephedra, St John’s wort, ginseng, licorice, and sassafras.

 

Walnuts:

Containing high levels of fiber and omega-3s, walnuts should be eaten when trying to conceive. They contain magnesium, which helps to increase blood supply to the uterus and promotes progesterone production, both of which are integral for increasing fertility. Magnesium also helps to alleviate morning sickness that women tend to experience in the first trimester.

 

Leafy Greens:

One of the best ways to obtain prenatal nutrients (calcium, iron, and folate, which helps inhibit birth defects in the spine and brain in the first few weeks of pregnancy) is by eating dark leafy greens. Load up on leafy greens by including them in smoothies, salads, or vegetable medleys. Great greens to eat include kale, chard, collards, or spinach.

 

Beans:

These plant-based protein sources are rich in B-vitamins, fiber, folate, and iron, which helps to naturally boost libido and increase fertility. An iron deficiency can cause an anovulation, which is when ovulation doesn’t produce a healthy egg. It is best to opt for dried beans and soak them before cooking. Try to have beans in at least two meals a week. If you buy canned varieties, make sure that the cans are free of BPA, a toxic chemical that can negatively affect estrogen levels.

 

Avocados:

Not only are avocados great sources of folate, but they also contain omega-3s and vitamin K, which helps to balance hormones and absorb nutrients. Avocados are also rich in monounsaturated fats and potassium, which helps to stabilize blood pressure levels. Women with PCOS or diabetes are encouraged to eat avocados because they contain vitamin E, which works to protect cells against oxidative damage.

 

Figs:

The Ancient Greeks believed that figs helped to increase fertility. This belief is now supported by scientific evidience! Containing a lot of iron, figs are beneficial for healthy eggs and ovulation.

    Q: What Can I Do To Increase My Fertility So As To Get Pregnant?

    A:

    First, perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and lastly the FERTILITY CLEANSE. After these cleanses, perform the FEMALE SEXUAL REJUVENATION KIT. After this kit is performed, take 3 capsules daily of BUNNY RABBIT, FECUNDITY , and drink 1 cup of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily. Though optional, we highly recommend our APHRODISIAC INSPIRANT for use throughout the day or as needed. It is highly suggested that you read and re-read our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL during your cleanses and even off your cleanses. Visualize yourself pregnant, belly protruding and all, and even shopping for baby clothes. If you're really bold and daring, start buying baby clothes and supplies right now. If you see the baby in your mind and buy what the baby needs NOW, the baby will come! Also read our article entitled "IMPOTENCE INFERTILITY AND STERILITY" in our articles section on our website. Dedicate at least 3 days out of the week for intimacy and sexual intercourse. There's no conception absent sex, so engage in plenty of good steamy sex. A vegan/raw foods diet is best to enhance fertility.

    Q: I have been reading a lot lately on HCG levels and people who have acquired HCG injections to lose weight at a fast rate of speed. Ultimately, if I understand correctly, HCG is a fertility booster. Would the fertility kit your company produces have the same effect, and actually raise the HCG levels of a person's chemistry? I would much prefer to treat my body 100% organically/herbally. I have highly mixed emotions about allowing "doctors" to inject something into my body, if there is an alternative.

    A:

    Our Fertility Kit is 100% organic (natural) and does not only work on one level (i.e. HCG), but all hormonal levels in addition to balancing, strengthening, and toning the hormonal system. All hormones are raised to their necessary level with our fertility kit and regimen.

    It is unnatural to inject anything into the human body. It's a disrespect to the body which is perfectly qualified to do what it was designed to do if you just give the body what it needs.

    Follow your emotions (or gut instinct) about doctors and injection. Dherbs offers a safe and sane alternative. Give it a try! GO NATURAL!

    Take the Female Health tea along with the kit to enhance its effect and the chances of conception.

    Q: Please reply to this (I will not buy from you unless you reply to my email; I want to check some things with you before I buy): 1- Please tell me if the following products in your website can be taken by pregnant women: folic acid, iron phosphate, bioflavonoid formula, iodine phosphate, multi vitamins and minerals, vitamin c formula, b-vitamin complex, iron phosphate tea? 2- I want to buy all the nutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc.) that I need for my baby (I'm 3 months pregnant). If I buy the multi vitamins and minerals, do I need to supplement any additional products that I mentioned above (esp. folic acid, vitamin c, iron, b-vitamin complex)? 3- I also want to buy Eklampein formula, prenatal laxative, prenatal formula, healthy pregnancy, and prenatal tea. Since I can't buy all the products that I mentioned in this email; I need your help to buy less. Because the ones that I will buy; I will buy enough to last me about 5/6 months (so I will still be buying so many from you even if I buy 3 or 4 different products). I don't have enough money; please work with me and tell me which ones I need for complete prenatal care and since I will be buying too many; please give me discount (so I can afford it and take good care of myself and my baby in the same time).

    A:

    Folic acid, iron phosphate, bioflavonoid formula, iodine phosphate, multi vitamins and minerals, vitamin c formula, b-vitamin complex, iron phosphate tea can all be taken by a pregnant woman. You could delete bioflavonoid and B-vitamin complex though and still get necessary nutrition for your pregnancy. And yes, Dherbs.Com will give you a nice discount on a large order.

    Q: I originally came to this site looking for the body cleanse I heard about on the radio. Once I started to read up on the products offered I noticed that there is a special packet for fertility which my husband and I are dealing with now. Am I able to take the body cleanse and the fertility kit at the same time? Or do I just need to body detox since that addresses fertility and a lot of other issues I have concerns about? My husband has had 2 kidney stone removal surgeries in the past and just recently we went back to the doc because he is experiencing lower back pain again. What do you suggest for him?

    A:

    Take the kits separately! Detox first with the FULL BODY DETOX and after this kit perform your FERTILITY CLEANSE. Your husband should perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. A chiropractic and acupressurist may be helpful to him.

    Q: I was diagnosed with PCOS about 5 years ago. Although my husband and I have been having unprotected sex for 5 years I have not yet conceived. I have also been on Metformin and Clomid to aid in conception to no avail. My cycles are irregular and only come 2-3 times a year. My husband smokes cigarettes and Marijuana. I believe that the combination of my condition and his habits are rendering us childless. I just ordered your FERTILITY CLEANSE for me and the FULL BODY DETOX for him. Is this the regimen that you would suggest? We start with to aid in conception?

    A:

    You both should have stared with the FULL BODY DETOX and then you should have performed the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE followed by the FERTILITY CLEANSE and he with the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE followed by another FULL BODY DETOX. If the conception is important the bad habits (smoking) needs to cease. They offer no benefit whatsoever. Please read our articles â€SMOKING†and â€THE BLUNT FACTS ON MARIJUANA†as well as â€IMPOTENCE INFERTILITY AND STERILITYâ€.

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: I need to get the Thyroid Formula again for myself. Also I was thinking of getting the Fertility Cleanse as well. I have gotten pregnant, but I miscarried early in the pregnancy. My tubes are clear; my husband has a good sperm count and motility. My thought was that your kit couldn't hurt to try. Yet I'm not sure I need to do all of it. Meaning I don't have any yeast problems, never had a disease, etc. What is your thought on this? Just do it all anyway and treat the whole area?

    A:

    IT NEVER HURTS TO CONSUME HERBS DUE TO THEIR POTENT PROPERTIES. PLUS HERBS CLEANSE AND PROVIDE NOURISHMENT. I'D SAY GIVE IT A TRY IN ADDITION TO EVERYTHING ELSE YOU'RE DOING. IF YOU ARE MISCARRYING EARLY, THEN YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM YOUR CERVIX TO HOLD A FETUS. THERE'S A DEFECT WITH THE CERVICAL SOFTWARE.

    Q: I am nine weeks pregnant and having a difficult time. Before I was pregnant I was on an incredible herbal regimen that had me feeling like superwoman. But my herbalist is not very knowledgeable of what herbs are safe for pregnant women. I eat healthy, taken all-natural prenatal vitamins, but would like to do more to get that "Superwoman" feeling back. Is there a book u could recommend that might help educate me as to which herbs are safe and which to avoid during pregnancy?

    A:

    I know the feeling you're talking about. There are many books on herbs and pregnancy.

    Check out these 2 books:

    "Herbal Healing For Women" by Rosemary Gladstar

    "The Complete Woman's Herbal" by Anne McIntyre

    Herbs to avoid while pregnant include all OXYTOCIC herbs or herbs that make the uterus contract, i.e. Black Haw, Beth Root, Black Cohosh, Blue Cohosh, etc.; all ABORTAFACIENT (abortion-inducing herbs) such as Pennyroyal, Rue, etc.

    Study up on abortaficient herbs and oxytocic herbs and you'll be fine.

    Read our article on Pre Natal Health on our site under "Articles."

    You can have a healthy all-natural pregnancy and delivery.

    Q: Greetings! Is it OK to take the Fertility Cleanse and Fibroid Buster Cleanse at the same time? You mention that dairy products are not good for the body due to the hormonal chemicals. Is organic milk OK? Lastly, do you offer discounts for multiple product purchases and combined shipping? The two products I am interested in are very pricey $199 & $135. If you have any sales or discounts available I would be very grateful!!

    A:

    We don't advise taking 2 cleanses together (too many capsules to consume)! Perform one at a time! If you order all at once we can give you a 10% discount (but you'll have to call in your order when you are ready to order). Organic milk is just as bad as regular milk!

    Q: My husband has sent you a question about painful erections. I just wanted to add these occur during the night and prevent sleep or during the day. They are not painful during intercourse. In other words they are unwanted erections. His pleasure during intercourse seems to be minimal. He seems to masturbate a lot and hence his vitality is low. As we are trying to get pregnant we do not want to decrease his fertility or increase his sex drive.

    A:

    Males get erect for a reason. They may seem unwanted to you guys, but not to the body. If it's not a bother to you, allow him to enter you (vaginally). The semen lost during masturbation could be inside of you for purposes of procreation. The more he gets to ejaculate inside of you, the more those painful erections will subside (and the better your chances of becoming pregnant). The erections are a subconscious body statement that he really wants to reproduce as well as that he is boiling with unexpressed creativity that only has an outlet via sexual intercourse. The more intercourse, the more those erections will subside. Or, he must learn to channel his sexual desire up to his higher charkas via yoga and other measures which would stimulate his pineal gland and crown center. Doing this, he'd become more spiritual and intuitive. You guys might also want to consciously have intercourse at night as the night-time (moon) supports conception. Go with the flow of Nature!

    Q: My question is regarding fibroids. I have been told I have had fibroids about the size of someone 3 months pregnant. I have been told there are two in clusters. They gave me the diameters, but I don't have that information at this time. My OB/GYN has told me he believes it is causing me to be slightly anemic. I have been trying some remedies on my own like more exercise and a change in diet. My primary physician does not recommend surgery she has me taking iron ferrous sulfate supplements twice per day to help with my iron count. It seems to be helping. The only problem I have with taking the iron supplements is that it sometimes causes constipation and I am normally pretty regular. I usually eliminate 2 times per day sometimes 3. My OB/GYN on the other hand keeps pushing for me to having surgery.& amp; nbsp; They had me take BC pills, however I took myself off of them because they made me sick. I took them only for 6 months. I'm 45 and have never taken BC pills ever and I don't want to start now. I've never been pregnant. I flow heavy on my 2nd and 3rd day heavy and after that it is manageable. My cycle has improved however I want to reduce the flow on those days if possible and of course dissolve the fibroid if at all possible. Doctors tell me they won't go away unless removed. I used to be on my cycle for 7 days and 4 of those days were heavy. Now I'm normally on for 4 days and only the 2nd and 3rd day are heavy. I know that as I reach menopause they may shrink in size, however I'm still aways off from that. I eat no red meat however I do eat fish and poultry. I eat a pretty good balance of vegetables and fruits, mostly raw and steamed. I drink lactaid milk. I don't eat much dairy except cheese and eggs occasionally. I do have a weakness, I love potato chips. I know this is not good. I can feel the fibroid get bigger when I eat them. When I stop for a period of time it decreases in size. At least I feel like it does. I'm not a sugar craver, however during the week before my cycle I'll crave sweets. I usually resist. I feel it's my diet that has caused the fibroids as well as every female in my family has had a hysterectomy due to fibroids. I think it is also hereditary as well. Whatever the case I'd like to know what regimen can you put me on that will help me? The goal is to reduce or dissolve the size of the fibroid so it is not affecting my iron level. I'm also starting to see my abdomen get bigger when I've always had a flat stomach. Perhaps this is me just getting older, however I think it's the fibroids. Constant low levels over time can't be good. I hope I have provided you enough information to give me your recommendation. If not please feel free to e-mail me for any additional information you need. I'm looking for a natural cure. Outside of this condition I'm in very good health. No problem with weight, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm pretty athletic and active as well. Please advise. I look forward to your recommendation.

    A:

    I remember just recently e-mailing you on this inquiry. Your diet MUST CHANGE! Consider full fledged RAW FOODS and VEGAN diet during your healing transition. Lactaid milk is HORRIBLE for you. Did you read our â€FIBROID TUMORS†article?????? You need to keep on performing FULL BODY DETOX followed by Fibroid Buster kit and regimen, back to back! Continuously! Detoxing must become a lifestyle for you! For iron, consider Dherbs.Com IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. Also, consider a telephone consultation because time is greatly limited in writing back in response to inquiries. There is much healing for you, Beloved!

    Q: I am a woman who happens to be diabetic and now I am pregnant. I would like to know what foods I should eat and restrain from while I am still pregnant. I am also taking insulin to keep my blood sugar levels low enough as not to harm my baby. They are telling me I need to eat dairy and meat to meet the dietary requirements for a healthy baby. Please help me.

    A:

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. New life is such a wonderful thing!

    We recommend that you drink our Pancreas tea (1-2 cups a day).

    Eat plenty of cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Abstain from dairy products and meat products. If anything, eat meat-less (vegan) alternatives -- you can find plenty in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual ($11).

    Eat plenty of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables. You can eat steamed vegetables and brown and/or wild rice (with vegan chicken if you like). Just switch meat for vegan products and switch to non-dairy products or dairy alternatives (which can be found in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle manual) in order to receive the necessary nutrition without any harmful side effects.

    For great nutrition for your baby, we recommend the following Dherbs formulas: PRE-NATAL FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS, and Iodine Formula.

    For natural sugar, try Stevia, Agave Nectar, and/or Grade B maple syrup.

    Q: I was wondering if you had any insights as to why I experience "warm flashes" during the luteal phase of my menstrual cycle. I've been sampling your Female Hormonal Formulas, for some time now, and while some products have helped lengthen my cycle, I still am having the hot feeling. I'm 36 years old, have never had a child, and am wondering if there's any way I can "preserve" my fertility up until age 40.

    A:

    It's never hopeless unless you agree to believe that it is. Have you performed a female based cleanse (Total Woman Cleanse)? Any warming (i.e. hot flashes) pertains to dumping off toxins, but usually due to the uterus being taxed. How's your uterine health? Any problems in that area?
