Overview of eating for fertility – The Acubalance Fertility Diet & Recipes

We work with patients every day in our practice who are struggling to conceive. It’s a heartbreaking journey – and something that most couples never anticipate will happen to them. You are asking the body to do something seemingly natural and easy for others, and it’s not happening for you. When trying and it’s not happening, the intended parent(s) we work with experience high levels of stress and tension along with overwhelming frustration with the lack of control.

When deciding whether to seek conventional care, complementary/alternative medicine, or a combination of the two, the intended parent(s) can feel lost about what to do to support their fertility. We’re here to help you navigate those decisions. While Western technology is amazing and can bypass many of the obstacles to a baby that couples may face, there is currently no modality in the conventional system that addresses the quality of egg cells, sperm cells, and the uterine environment. At Acubalance, we tell our patients that we’re working to improve the quality of these components, to make it more likely that you’ll conceive and carry to term a healthy baby – whether conception takes place at home or in the lab at a fertility clinic.

What you eat has a significant impact on your fertility. This has been validated through research, and we’ve seen it in clinical practice. Through a combination of sound nutrition and lifestyle changes, herbs, supplements, acupuncture, IV therapy, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), and other complementary therapies, most of our patients find their way to a healthy baby, with or without the conventional Western medical system. The food you eat is the foundation upon which your health is built, and a healthy body = a fertile body.

This fertility diet is designed to give you an actionable plan when it comes to eating to support your fertility. Making these simple changes in the food you choose to put into your body truly adds up over time. If it feels like a lot to take on, start with one simple change: drink more water today. Then next week, add a few more servings of green vegetables. You don’t have to do this overnight, but know that every positive change you make will bring you closer to your goal.

We’re excited to be on this journey with you,
