Alongside working with a fertility naturopath, there are some other things that you can do which will help enhance your fertility naturally.
Our first tip is to follow a naturopathic fertility diet which involves eating organic foods. Switching to organic food will help you to detoxify your system and provide it with a much-needed nutrient boost that can potentially increase your chances of falling pregnant. Organic food will limit your exposure to pesticides and hormones that are no good for your body, and we would also recommend steering clear of foods that are wrapped in clingfilm. Switch to glass bottles instead of plastic and avoid salads that are bagged as these can cause you to be exposed to lots of toxins and bacteria inside them.
Our second top tip to enhance your fertility naturally is to try and help your liver as much as you possibly can. If you smoke, now is the time to quit. You should try to avoid microwaving food and remove caffeine and drink herbal teas recommended by our Melbourne herbalist. A great way to help your liver eliminate toxins is with lemon or ginger tea. Try to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day as this will increase your nutrient intake and help aid bowel elimination.
Eating oily fish is our third top tip as these fatty acids will help to regulate your hormones. Tuna is a no-go due to its higher mercury content, but sardines, herring and mackerel are all great options. Seeds are also a fantastic source of fatty acids, and we would recommend incorporating flax, sesame or pumpkin seeds into your diet
Finally, our last top tip to help you improve your fertility naturally is to make sure that you are getting enough vitamin E. Vitamin E is found in wheat germ, vegetable oils, sesame seeds and sardines. It is important to make sure you are getting enough zinc alongside the vitamin E too which can be found in seeds and fresh ginger.
