Eating for Fertility - Page 2

post #21 of 24

I agree. We seem to have been moving towards 'strictly' organic for the past two years, and most of our foods are STILL not organic!

 

We eat a very healthy diet though, so all that's left is to FINALLY move everything over to organic. It's just very hard when certain foods are double or more! the price of a non-organic alternative. I realize the benefits though, so now is the time ;-)

Good nutrition is definitely important.When I talk about fertility with clients I usually focus on building a good foundation for everything to work the way it should. That means hormonal balance& structural balance. The right food & exercise contribute to building a solid foundation. :)  As I Mercier Therapist I definitely focus more on the structural balance, but also usually recommend some  great herbal teas/supplements that can help.  I like to see clients on an organic diet or at least minimally processed foods. Go for real foods. I think your focus on healthy eating & slowly making changes that you would need to make if you got pregnant are a great way to start. You don't want to end up too overwhelmed and then being too stressed out to stick with the changes. I know that has happened to me! :)

Calpurnia I saw your reply on Bikram - I love yoga but thought that it's important not to do Bikram once you've conceived (and you might not know it right away), because you should avoid excessive heat? Just wondering...
