Infertility is on the rise and so is a host of other hormone related problems. That is why I started the hormone balancing portion of our West Bend Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center. To help people who feel hopeless, like I once did, address this problem naturally. There are a lot of factors to this, but one factor you should take into consideration if you want to get healthy and create optimal function within yourself, is how much sugar is in your diet
I am a huge fan of regularly eating fruits especially in the morning because most also supply you a lot of living water for hydration. Which is important after not having any water for 6-8 hours as you slept.
I wouldn’t worry too much about fruits in your diet, unless you have made every other change I am going to mention, and nothing has improved. Everyone is different, and our tolerances to different foods are different. If you have made a lot of changes and still have not seen any improvement, then you may want to consider a food intolerance blood test. This will show you if there are any foods your body does not naturally process well that could be creating inflammation or taxing your body.
I would first look at if you are regularly eating a lot of foods with processed or refined sugar, such as soda, donuts, candy, chips, etc.… Many times, snacks are where people get themselves into trouble. Please remember, artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup count, and are worse than sugar.
This high processed carb diet, also known as KETO, stresses the adrenal glands and pancreas, resulting in increased levels of insulin and reduced levels of DHEA (The building block for testosterone).
The common thinking that cholesterol is bad, and a low-fat diet is good, is not accurate. Cholesterol is one key building block for all reproductive hormones in both, men and women. That’s a reason why cholesterol-lowering drugs can cause all kinds of problems, like reduced muscle mass, depression and erectile dysfunction.
Dr. Hugo Rodier, a holistic medical doctor, once said: “They ought to put a warning label on foods with a high content of refined sweeteners, ‘Warning: This product may cause erectile dysfunction’. The reason for this is, diabetes and high blood sugar adversely affect circulation, making it more difficult for a man to get an erection.
WHAT TO DO:
- Drink water- not drinks with sweeteners in them and if you do want something sweet, drink fresh juice. It takes longer to process and is easier on your pancreas.
- Snack on fruits and nuts in the morning and quality meat or nuts in the afternoon. This helps provide healthy carbs that you need, but also protein and fat, which you also need.
- For meals, get local or organic ingredients and cook from scratch. You can have some grains, but make sure they are fresh with minimal processing.
These are great recommendations to stay healthy and help prevent you and your kids from developing problems. However, if you are already experiencing issues like: chronic fatigue, infertility, low libido, erectile dysfunction, sleep problems, menstrual problems, anxiety or depression, it won’t be enough to heal your body and return to optimal function.
A saliva test will tell you exactly how your glandular and reproductive system are functioning and what supplements, and when and how much you need to take, will help your body restore balance, function optimally and heal your infertility or other issues.
This system helped my wife and I get pregnant with our 2nd child, and that is why we are doing it in our West Bend Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center. We want to help people the same way I was helped.
