My Thoughts on Nutrition for Fertility

Nutrition is extremely important for balancing the hormones. A good diet will support and nourish the organs that produce hormones so essential for reproduction. And during this 30-day challenge, one of my goals is to get back to eating my normal diet as I went of track a bit during the miscarriage. And that’s ok for the most part, I didn’t abandon my ideals completely, I just allowed myself to eat foods I normally wouldn’t, and it was for the short term as I dealt with and recovered from the physical process.

But to make it easier on myself, I also came up with a checklist of foods that I want to try to get in each day, most days of the week. (you can download it on the front page of the forum if you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so here.

I’m hoping that having a visual reminder of the good foods I need will help me nourish my body in the best way possible.

The basic guidelines I set for myself mirror the way traditional cultures ate. Real foods, not processed, and prepared in ways that allow our bodies to absorb the most nutrients.

I recently sat in on a short class about regulating the menstrual cycle and this really stuck out:

 

“The cause of all menstrual issues is: not enough nutrients getting in – not enough of the bad getting out”

 

So by feeding my body good foods I can nourish my system and help the natural detoxification system as well to get the bad out.

 

As you work to balance your hormones, what foods do you make sure you’re eating each day/week? And why?

    I believe what we eat or don’t eat definitely affects both men’s and women’s fertility. We were not supposed to be able to conceive due to male factor infertility. The only way we can explain our first pregnancy which sadly is ending due to miscarriage is that it was a result of our diet changes (off gluten and dairy and eating more whole/nutritious foods and that it was also a miracle of God). We’re prayerfully hoping that with our continued good nutrition we’ll conceive again if God has it in his plans for our family.
