Are you hoping to conceive? Would you like to identify the best diet, supplements and lifestyle factors to maximise your chances of getting and staying pregnant, and also to prevent miscarriages?
Research has shown that making changes in your diet and lifestyle can improve fertility for both men and women, and can also reduce the risk of miscarriage.
Interestingly, the most common cause of infertility is listed as 'unexplained', meaning the majority of doctors cannot identify the medical problems responsible after investigations.
Fertility is multi-factorial, so it is important to look at every aspect of your health, diet, emotions and lifestyle.
Nutritional support has been shown to be helpful with female hormone issues including PCOS and endometriosis, and on the male side with low sperm count and motility and high levels of DNA fragmentation.
For women, nutrition can improve the quality of eggs and help if someone has been diagnosed with an immunological problem. Sperm health and low sperm count, motility and the number of normal sperm can be improved with specific nutrients and lifestyle changes.
