Do you really think nutrition has such an impact on your fertility? Many women don’t.
I do happen to believe the way I eat and how I take care of my body, is in fact the only way my body has been open to receiving the blessings from God in his ordained time.
The problem is, we trust and believe doctors way to much. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do have a lot of respect for the medical field, I just feel that more often than not doctors treat only the symptoms and not the real causes. Infertility is usually a symptom of something in our body not functioning correctly. Usually our hormones. And what we eat directly affects our hormones.
But yet, not once did my doctor ask what I was eating. Not once did he make sure I was getting enough nourishment. I had a long discussion with him right when we were starting to try to conceive, and the only thing he mentioned over and over, was that my PCOS shouldn’t be a problem (yea, no ovulation=no problems!) and after a year to call him so he could write me a prescription. I asked repeatedly what I could do naturally, things I could change, and I received no answers.
My husband and I made the decision to not seek the medical route when it came to our fertility, although for many couples I know that’s not the case. Some do decide to accept the prescriptions and the alternative treatments to have their families and for that I make no judgment. But even if you decide to go the conventional medical route, your nutrition still makes a difference. There isn’t a pill that automatically makes you healthy. You can take one to get your body to ovulate, but if you’re not eating right, that egg won’t be nourished enough to thrive.
All in all, you are what you eat.
