The New Fertility Diet Guide and find out!
For some couples, getting pregnant is quick and easy. For others, things don’t exactly go as planned.
Sometimes, the difficulty is linked to specific physiological issues that require medical treatment. But according to the newly published book, The New Fertility Diet Guide, (Ivy League Press, NY, Oct, 2009) by best selling authors Niels Lauersen, MD and Colette Bouchez, many couples struggling to get pregnant require only small changes in diet and lifestyle to turn their conception odds around.
"Fortunately, for most couples having difficulties getting pregnant, there are no serious medical problems standing in the way, but instead small, even sub-clinical factors in both partners that come together to make conception harder than it has to be, “ says co-author Dr. Lauersen, who is also the medical director of GettingPregnantNow.org.
Indeed, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine reports that for the overwhelming majority of couples who visit fertility clinics, the diagnosis is “unexplained infertility”, which experts define as “ a constellation” of small factors in both partners that work to block fertility.
And now, The New Fertility Diet asserts there may be way to “unblock” those factors - and the answer may be as close as your dinner plate.
"There is some incredible evidence – solid medical studies – showing that by eating certain foods, combining certain foods, and avoiding other foods, every couple can use this fertility diet to get pregnant faster and easier,” says Lauersen.
Indeed, the new book is based on a fertility diet Lauersen says he created for thousands of his own patients – couples who, he says over the years became living proof that “feeding your fertility” really works!
" I've got a wall filled with hundreds of pictures of miracle babies, many of whom came into this world because their mom and dad believed in the power of nutrition to put them on the road to parenthood,” says Lauersen.
While The New Fertility Diet Guide details that eating plan – along with the latest research on how food effects fertility – based on some of that information Lauersen and Bouchez created this quick quiz to test your fertility food smarts.
