Both men and women who are having difficulties with infertility are looking for natural solutions. Naturopathic care and whole food supplements are a proven method to either work alone, or alongside conventional medical approaches to treating infertility. I’ve chosen to write this infertility blog to help educate couples about the efficacy of detoxifying the body preconception, and also giving the mom and dad the proper nutrients before conception to increase their chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Detoxification-
Cleansing and detoxification are a must before conception to increase the chances of becoming pregnant, but more importantly, to increase the health of the coming baby. Toxins can be stored in both partners for years and have a negative effect on the health of the egg and sperm. DNA changes occur in the presence of toxins and need to be eliminated before conception. When the mom is pregnant, the baby acts as a sponge and takes all the toxins to be processed through its brand new liver, kidneys and digestive tract.

I usually encourage patients to detoxify for at least 3 months, both partners, prior to conception if possible. The product I use with great success is my own formulation, VitaDetox. The revolutionary product helps detoxify the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, digestive tract, lymphatic system and blood. The dosage is 2 capsules, twice per day, on an empty stomach.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture for fertility is very helpful at balancing the CHI, or energy in the body. It helps to allow for healthy conception and pregnancy and minimizes the chances of miscarriage. Acupuncture for the mom to be helps to balance the hormones and relaxes the nervous system.

Whole Food Vitamins
Vitamin and mineral status of parents to be is very important when trying to conceive. I have found nutritional deficiencies in a large number of patients who have difficulty with infertility. I always recommend whole food vitamins to correct the deficiency. Whole food vitamins like VitaFruits and VitaVeggies are made directly from nature’s best nutrients, without any synthetic vitamins or minerals as most other supplements on the market contain. Whole food vitamins are important for fertility to supply the anti-oxidants, phytonutrients and vitamins and minerals needed from a whole food source.

Beauty Benefits of Vitamin D

Best Absorbed Vitamin D

Vitamin D3 is an essential nutrient that most people who live in temperate climates are deficient in due to the lack of sunshine and skin exposure to the sun’s rays. The sun’s UVB rays are responsible for creating vitamin D3 in our body, through the interaction with cholesterol. It is important to note that we require Vitamin D3 as a potent anti-oxidant and cancer preventative! Yes, that’s right, we need Vitamin D3 to prevent cancer, even though we’ve been taught through the media that the sun is harmful and causes skin cancer. I believe we should all get some healthy sun exposure, in the summer months to improve our Vitamin D levels. This means exposing our arms and legs to the sun, for at least 15 minutes, 4-6 days per week, between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. If you live closer to the equator, you naturally have more exposure to the sun than someone like me, who lives in Canada and has many cold winter months, without sunshine. If you are able to travel to a warmer climate in the winter months to get some natural sun exposure, this is fantastic.
The beauty benefits of Vitamin D3 are surprising. Vitamin D3 helps improve skin tone and texture, “Having sufficient vitamin D in the skin helps minimize acne, boost elasticity, stimulates collagen production, enhances radiance, and lessen lines and the appearance of dark spots, he says.” Dr. Dennis Gross, board certified NYC dermatologist.
Recent medical news has shown that Vitamin D3 is best produced and absorbed into the skin after 48 hours post sun exposure. It is recommended that once you have had your sunbathing session, you should avoid washing your skin with soap for the next 2 days as this will wash away much of the Vitamin D3 your body has produced in the sebum of your skin cells. I would suggest you not wash your arms and legs perhaps, but do wash your other parts with soap, to avoid body odor and bacterial multiplication.
For those people who simply cannot get enough sunshine, I recommend a Vitamin D3 supplement, like VitaTree Vitamin D3. This unique formulation of Vitamin D3 is made from lanolin, the oil secreted by sheep’s wool. This is the next best way to get your Vitamin D, and in the right form being D3, cholecalciferol. Vitamin D2, ergocalciferol, is the Vitamin D supplemented in most food sources and has very little absorption as compared to D3.

Home Remedies to Detoxify the Liver

Squeezing fresh lemon in water and drinking it throughout the day is a great way to detoxify the liver. Lemons contain d-limonene, and mormolin, which are compounds that induce Phase 2 detoxification in the liver, especially glucuronidation and glutathione conjugation. Use 1/4 to 1/2 a lemon in 8 oz. of water.

Natural Cures for Beer Gut

Natural Cures for Beer Gut

If you, or someone you love is suffering with a big beer belly or gut, you need to read this information and make changes immediately. A large, chronically distended abdomen is very common, yet not normal. It is a tell-tale sign and symptom of dysbiosis in the gut. Dysbiosis is an imbalance between good and bad gut bacteria in the small and large intestine. This happens over time from eating foods that perpetuate these bad bacteria and yeasts in the intestines, one of the main culprits is beer! This is because, beer and other alcoholic beverages are high in sugar, yeast and are fermented. A triple whammy for encouraging the growth of the bad organisms, especially candida and yeast.

This causes gas, bloating and the chronic distended abdomen. The cure?- modifying the diet to limit sweet, starchy, fermented and yeasty foods, plus the addition of probiotics, or good microorganisms to fix the imbalance between harmful bacteria, yeast and candida and to create a more healthy gut function and immune system.

Probiotics must be human compatible organisms, with high potency.

Another helpful protocol for a large belly is detoxification. VitaDetox helps cleanse all the internal organs, including the digestive tract in a gentle, yet effective manner. It is an easy to swallow, vegetarian capsule. You need not change your diet when doing the VitaDetox, however, if you choose to, VitaTree will give you a list of foods to avoid or limit during the cleanse. This is totally your choice, but can have a quicker impact on weight loss if you do avoid these foods. For more info visit www.tryvitatree.com.
