LET’S GET STARTED!
Ok! Ready to start in making yourself the most fertile and healthiest you’ve ever been? Great!
Remember- The best course of action is to allow yourself a minimum of 3 months in order to see these added benefits start to manifest in your overall health and in your fertility. Follow as many of these steps as you can…hopefully, incorporating the entire system for a complete turnaround.
STEP 1– GOOD NUTRITION IS SO IMPORTANT- Change your diet and change your fertility health! I recently read a billboard that I loved, “Take care of your body…it’s where you live”. So true! Read these informative articles and start to incorporate our suggestions into your daily diet.
CLIFF’S NOTES VERSION (BUT YOU SHOULD READ THE ARTICLES, REGARDLESS :)):
Incorporate more fertility friendly foods into your diet, cut out unneeded sugars and fats, decrease or eliminate diary products, cut out sugar-producing carbs in the form of processed glutens, eliminate sugar as a whole from your daily diet. Desserts are a once in a long while treat now!
STEP 2– EXERCISE! I know that some might receive this recommendation with an “ugh!” or with a “yup, gotta get back on that”, or a “I’m working out three times a day” (good for you!), whatever your current regimen, it’s good to know the in’s and out’s of how exercise affects your fertility and what research has shown. Read this great articles from Fitness Magazine to gain more knowledge:
STEP 3- SAY NO TO CIGARETTES! Quitting smoking (yes, even you- social smokers!) We’ve all heard it before and it’s no secret the many dangers smoking has on your fertility. It’s like sitting in a toxic room, full of deadly chemicals, and voluntarily inhaling these fertility and health killers into your body. How does smoking actually affect your fertility? What do studies show? Let’s find out!
STEP 4- STRESS! Who can truly live stress-free? It seems like we are programmed this day and age for stress to be a part of our lives, day in/day out. Do we truly believe that something as seemingly “natural” as stress can affect your fertility? The answer is a resounding YES it can! Here’s our research and our suggestions on how to greatly diminish it’s affect on your ability to conceive.
STEP 5- AVOID CAFFEINE- Now, I can imagine what you might be thinking right now…another thing I need to eliminate as in my favorite latte/espresso/coke/diet coke too? Well, if you want those eggs to be more fertile and your uterus to have increased blood flow then this habit needs to be curbed (at least in the short-term). Remember, you will need copious amounts of the stuff once your newborn arrives anyway :). Read our 2 part research to know why we suggest cutting back on the caffeine:
STEP 6- TAKE SUPPLEMENTS. Adding supplements to your daily routine can greatly benefit so many fertility issues such as poor egg quality, low ovarian reserve, PCOS, and Endometriosis, to name a few. You’d be amazed to learn what new studies have shown on how adding DHEA, Co-Q10, Vitamin C and others can truly make a difference in your ability to conceive naturally and/or in combination with an upcoming IVF.

STEP 7- AVOID TOXINS AT ALL COSTS. Toxins are all around us. We are bombarded daily with dangerous chemicals in our water, air, and even food. But did you know that your own beauty products could be disrupting your endocrine system and introducing harmful toxins into your bloodstream? It’s a scary thought but one you need to seriously consider as you move forward with your fight against infertility. Read our insightful analysis of several popular beauty products on the market today which are detrimental to your ability to conceive:

We’ve also done some extensive studies on sunscreen (yes, sunscreen!) and the results have the harm they can cause will astound you:
STEP 8- DO A CLEANSE!
Cleanses are great and act like a “wiped clean slate” when trying to overcome your fertility issues. Even if you’re just starting out or have been trying to conceive for some time now, your body can always perform better when it gets a chance to stop and start the healing process. You see, your body (contrary to what others may say) is always wanting to better itself by producing new cells and is always in a constant state of renewal. It’s true that, as we age, the renewal process begins to slow down but it doesn’t ever stop! With your help and determination, your body can take a breather and begin a total rejuvenation process. Here are our recommendations:
Begin your journey now with a fresh and positive outlook! You have been given some very strong and valuable information and ammunition in your quest to becoming more fertile. Now get started!
