Guidelines for holistic fertility
At Shannon South, Functional Nutrition for Fertility, we firmly believe that an individual’s overall well-being is deeply influenced by the choices they make in their daily lives. This is why we prioritize a holistic approach to fertility, where lifestyle choices play a vital role.
When it comes to holistic fertility practices, we provide general guidelines that can significantly impact your fertility journey:
Stress management is crucial during fertility treatment, as it affects individuals differently. To reduce and effectively manage stress, we encourage the following practices:
- Engaging in yoga sessions
- Incorporating meditation into your routine
- Exploring stress management initiatives, either through personal efforts or with the guidance of professional counseling
- Acupuncture has been proven to effectively reduce stress, making it a suitable option for patients undergoing fertility treatment. Additionally, acupuncture performed before and after embryo transfer can enhance uterine blood flow and potentially increase pregnancy rates.
We acknowledge that nutrition and diet directly influence the outcomes of fertility treatment and subsequent pregnancies. While some dietary supplements, like prenatal vitamins with folic acid for women, have demonstrated their benefits, we generally advise our patients against taking additional supplements unless specifically recommended by another doctor. It’s important to note that certain dietary choices have been associated with an improved likelihood of conceiving. Current research suggests that simple adjustments in dietary habits may hold more significance in increasing your chances of pregnancy than relying solely on medication. We would be more than happy to discuss these crucial concepts with you in detail.
Maintaining a healthy body weight is another factor that can enhance your chances of achieving pregnancy. Whether it involves losing weight if you’re overweight or gaining weight if you’re underweight, attaining a healthy body weight can contribute to restoring proper hormone levels and other bodily factors that influence fertility.
At Shannon South, Functional Nutrition for Fertility, we prioritize your overall well-being and understand that holistic fertility practices encompass various aspects of your life. We are here to provide support, guidance, and personalized care throughout your journey toward building a family.
