Flax seed and conception
During my last trip to the grocery store, I found that flax is in just about everything now. I can't even count how many cereals touted flax as an ingredient. And even eggs bragged about the chickens being fed flax to boost omega-3 content.
Fertility Secrets Handbook Review
The book "Fertility Secrets Handbook" by Helene Kvist is one of many e-books on conception. I bought it a few years ago, and I review it now.
Fertility is a gift wasted on the young
It is sad but true that your most fertile days are probably when you want to be least fertile. You can push that envelope, however, by how you live.
Fenugreek and Fertility
Fenugreek is not a fertility aid, but it has a very important use for nursing mothers.
Fasting and conception
Fasting is a great way to lose weight, detoxify or cleanse your body, and its even something required for some religious observances. Intermittent fasting, which is a daily fast, can improve your health in many ways, but not if you're trying to conceive.
Faith and conception
If you're not a religious person, conception is purely a chemical event. But the fact is that if that were true, then scientists would be able to make embryos in the lab. They can't.
Excess estrogen effect on conception
Excess estrogen in our foods is causing havoc with fertility. Estrogen is one of the female hormones, but too much of it doesn't make you "more" of a woman--it is not a good thing.
Evening Primrose Oil and Conception
Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) has been a popular conception aid for years. Research doesn't show much efficacy, however. And there are times of the month that it is definitely not a good idea.
Essential oils and fertility
Fragrances can contain a lot of chemicals that are actually bad for fertility, but some essential oils can actually help you conceive.
Epsom salts and conception
Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate salts. Added to a foot soak or bath, your skin will actually absorb magnesium. If you're deficient, this can be a way to get magnesium, and your skin won't absorb more than you need. Anyone for a bath?
