Holistic Infertility Treatment in Elizabethton, TN
A large portion of couples trying to conceive these days are faced with the often frustrating and heartbreaking reality of infertility. It can be a long road to find something that works. That being the case, many couples have embraced an integrative approach, looking toward non-traditional and alternative options as both a last resort and first option.
The holistic, alternative and integrative healthcare approach focuses on the body as a whole, this includes nutrition and every conceivable option which may directly AND indirectly be affecting your health, in this case infertility.
With that said, diet is at the center of many holistic health care practices—the diet having the capacity to effect everything from metabolism to DNA replication.
The Holistic Diet for Infertility
The foods we eat in our never-rest lifestyles are often processed with chemicals and in many cases, may be entirely the wrong food for our bodily needs. All foods are not created equally.
A different diet is recommended for men and woman as both have different hormonal needs, however beyond those specifics some universal truths hold firm. These truths come in the form of vitamins and nutrients needed by every human:
- Monosaturated fats
- Polyunsaturated fats (Omega-3)
- Whole Grains
- Fruits and vegetables
- B vitamin complex
- Folic acid
- Vitamin C
All of these are recommended as part of a healthy diet and a good foundation to improving your odds of conceiving. However, avoiding specific foods is essential as well.
Natural Infertility Remedies
There are specific natural cures to consider as well, but check with your doctor before taking any natural remedy as many can have adverse effects and drug reactions. Chasteberry is a berry producing plant that can help regulate progesterone levels, a key hormone in pregnancy. Pygeum africanum is used to treat prostate issues in men. Club moss is often used to treat impotence in men as well.
If you're experiencing infertility difficulties there are alternative options. As a complementary treatment to traditional medical solutions or as a stand-alone option, holistic infertility treatments may be for you.
