Fertility in both men and women has been on a steady decline for half a century, with statistics showing that infertility now affects an estimated average of one in five couples of childbearing years in Europe, America, the UK and Australia.
Desperate young couples are turning to assisted conception and endure months, even years of heartbreaking regimes of hormone therapy and intrusive procedures.
The cost is high and success is not a given.
The right FOOD can help combat INFERTILITY
Eating right has its rewards. And what better reward than conceiving a baby? Eating a diet of nutrient-dense fertility foods, and excluding those foods which may have adverse effects on fertility, can begin to make a difference in as little as three months.
But is eating the right food enough?
Alarmingly, this rise in infertility coincides with a more prevalent use of, and exposure to many factors that are part and parcel of modern life:
- alcohol and recreational drugs
- prescribed and over the counter medications
- environmental and industrial pollution
- toxins from cookware, plastics, personal care and cleaning products
- pesticides and chemical products
The air we breathe, the houses we live in, environments we work in, hobbies we indulge in, even the clothes we wear, are slowly damaging our health and devastating our reproductive systems.
Research has also exposed clear links between health and fertility issues and electromagnetic radiation emissions from our mobile phones, computers and the countless electric appliances that have become essential to us. Our bodies’ cells communicate via minute electrical impulses, and when we are exposed to external electromagnetic radiation of considerably greater strength these can affect us on a cellular level, damaging sperm, eggs and embryos, inducing miscarriage, while causing havoc with the body’s metabolism in countless other ways.
