How to Naturally Increase Fertility

Transcript:

Patients ask me all the time what are the things they can do naturally to the boost their fertility. The whole body deserves to be taken care of, we’re not just treating one aspect. In order to support fertility, I always recommend a healthy diet and lifestyle to increase fertility: McDonalds and fast foods are not your friend.

I recommend eating organic foods and vegetables as much as possible. If you Google “the dirty dozen,” it will give you a whole list of fruits and vegetables that have high pesticide residue. There is a lot more data coming out saying that our pesticide exposures and environmental toxins are affecting our fertility.

Exposure to chemicals such as phthalates and other pesticides, called endocrine disruptors, can affect our hormonal system. There is now a higher incidence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis possibly as result, so try to minimize exposure to these products by eating organic and eating as natural and unprocessed as possible.

The other thing I always recommend to naturally increase fertility is at least 30 minutes of moderate paced exercise five times a week. Exercise releases a lot of important endorphins that are good for you overall and boost your mood.

Last but not the least, there is again a lot of data coming out about use of plastics and how those chemicals leach into our food products. As much as possible, avoid using plastics in the microwave, store your food in glass containers, don’t drink from bottles of water that have been sitting in your car for long periods of time.

These are just general common sense things that everybody can incorporate into their daily life to naturally increase fertility.
