Increasing Your Fertility With Sun Exposure

Sun exposure is the very best source of Vitamin D. It’s true that you can also get it from swallowing a pill. But nothing beats the Vitamin D you get from sunlight on your skin. It converts cholesterol to vitamin D when it’s exposed to sunlight. In other words, you shouldn’t avoid sun exposure, OR healthy fats in your diet. [NOTE : If you do need to supplement with extra Vitamin D, use ‘D3’, aka ‘cholecalciferol’.]

Mainstream ‘wisdom’ has taught us to fear sun exposure. Yet it’s actually one of the most important things to include in your fertility regimen. Keeping your Vitamin D at adequate levels touches on virtually every aspect of fertility. Hiding away from the sun is about as wise as trying to hide from life itself.

Likewise, we advise against using commercial sunscreen. It seems to be a good idea, until you understand its true effects. It blocks this very healthy and important process, where you skin converts cholesterol to Vitamin D. Not to mention all the toxic ingredients in sunscreen, which get absorbed into your bloodstream. They disrupt hormones, and cause other health problems.

If you’re not in the habit of regular sun exposure, you should build up slowly. Your ability to absorb sunlight will increase over time. It will also increase along with your general level of health. Everything you do for your health in your fertility plan will increase your ability to take in the sun.

It’s no accident that pregnant women are seen as being “radiant”. It’s healthy to take in sunlight, and likewise, a healthy person “radiates” life energy outward.

A common homeopathic remedy that we use for infertility is Natrum Muriaticum. Typically, the Nat-m patient will present at least one major unresolved grief event in their history. One of the characteristics of this state is “inability to let go”. Similarly, the Nat-M patient has difficulty “taking things in”. Their skin is hypersensitive to the sun, and their eyes find natural sunlight too bright. Removing this blockage from their cellular memory allows them once again to enjoy the health benefits of the sun.

All this to say, is that there are many individual factors governing your health, and the level of sun exposure you can properly metabolize. Work at it regularly, until having daily sun exposure becomes the norm for you.

Sun exposure tips:

  • Expose as much of your skin as you’re able for at least 10  — 20 minutes per day year round.
  • Aim for steady, frequent, and short exposures to the sun year-round. Avoid the pattern of sudden blasts on weekends or holidays. If you live in a wintery climate, find a windless spot to sunbathe. Shed as much clothing as you can (i.e. at least your hands and face) and sunbathe as long as you’re comfortable.
  • Choose the gentler sunbeams of the morning. Avoid the intense heat of high noon and early afternoon.
  • DON’T use sunscreen. You want your general level of health to protect you, instead. Increase your sun exposure time according to your current level of health. Sunscreen blocks the essential production of vitamin D. It also contains toxic ingredients which disrupt hormone function. Sunscreen is actually one of the big culprits in skin cancer. Instead of sunscreen, use light clothing to protect yourself (sunhats, long-sleeves, etc.). Common sense goes a long way. You can apply coconut oil or aloe vera gel as better alternatives to sunscreen.
  • If you live near forest or vegetation, spend at least some of your sun exposure time there. “Organic light” (i.e. filtered through plants and vegetation) is easier to absorb. “Mineral light” (which comes directly from the sun to you) takes more work to process and absorb.

The Vitamin D – Fertility Connection

Infertility is on the rise. Vitamin D deficiency is widespread. Is there a connection?

Yes – there clearly is, in our clinical experience.

Why is this, and what you can do about it?

“Vitamin D” by Collin Grady https://flic.kr/p/azCeSV

Let’s first take a step back and look at rickets which is a bone disease caused by vitamin D deficiency. It’s rare now, but rickets was at epidemic proportions in recent centuries. Without vitamin D, calcium cannot be properly absorbed (which is necessary for healthy bones).

It’s like infertility is now the Rickets of the 21st century.

There’s a hormonal connection between vitamin D and fertility. To call it a ‘vitamin’ is a misnomer. It’s actually a hormone rather than a vitamin. It plays a critical role in your whole hormonal system. It’s necessary for the creation of the various sex hormones.

Let’s look at a few of the reasons vitamin D is essential for sperm health. It’s directly responsible for the creation of the nucleus of the sperm cell. It is also responsible for the quality and health of the semen and sperm count. The same calcium needed for bone health is also mission critical for healthy sperm. Calcium fuels the whipping motion of the sperm’s tail as it is approaching the egg, and needs to pick up the pace.

The very best source of vitamin D is through regular, healthy sun exposure. The skin, when exposed to sunlight, converts cholesterol into a form of vitamin D called cholecalciferol. This is another reason that healthy fats need to be part of your diet. Exposure to sunlight is as critical for your health as air, water, and basic nutrition.

There may be reason to supplement, as well. At the health food store, you’ll find this in supplement form called D3. Cod liver oil is a great nutritional source, and is usually recommended during the long dark season of winter.  Free-range eggs, and raw, organic dairy are also great sources. The further north you live, the more important supplementation becomes.

NOTE : vitamin D is fat soluble, which means that it IS possible to overdose. A regular blood test to measure your Vit D levels is a good idea to make sure that you’re staying in the optimal range.

Where do Babies Come From? The Sun, of Course!

All life on earth originates in, and is maintained by sunlight. Every aspect of health and fertility can be traced back to the sun. Even a casual study of the food chain will illuminate this. Photosynthesis converts sunlight into plant energy, which then flows up the food chain.

Our human physiology is still partially plant-like – we convert sun exposure into vitamin D when it touches our skin. It’s cholesterol that gets transformed into Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight. This is one of the reasons you need a steady intake of healthy fats and oils in your diet. When you see a food label boasting ‘low fat!’ think to yourself ‘low fertility!’.

It’s called ‘vitamin’ D, but it is actually a hormone, not a vitamin. It’s absolutely essential for your fertility. Sunlight on your skin produces the best form of Vitamin D.

Your hormones respond to the rhythm of the sun and moon. Light and darkness, or day and night are what set your hormones in motion. The hormones that tell your body when to get sleepy, and when to wake up are the same ones that make you fertile. Too much screen time in the evening is confusing to your body. Poor sleep is only an early warning sign of fertility difficulties.

You could even say that humans are miniature versions of the sun. How so? How are you like a ball of burning hydrogen gas in the sky? Do you remember the definition of ‘pH’? It stands for ‘potential for hydrogen ion transfer’. That’s another way of referring to the life energy that flows through your body. Your body is a scaled-down version of the sun – burning hydrogen to create and maintain your energy.

This is why measuring your pH is one of the best ways to test the health of your diet. An alkaline reading in the low 7 range shows that you are burning your fuel cleanly and efficiently. The more that your health is based on the sun and all its byproducts, the more fertile you will be.

How Slow Burn Weight Training Improves Your Fertility

There are two sides to the healthy exercise coin in every fertility plan. Today we will examine the side of strength training, the counterpart to cardio.

Resistance training provides many fertility benefits. It even improves your cardiovascular health! It helps improve your muscle tone, bone density, and blood pressure. It also raises your H.D.L., or ‘good’ cholesterol. All of these are essential for fertility health.

We recommend following the program explained in the book Slow Burn. You can choose either the ‘at home’ or ‘in gym’ protocol. It is a sequence of exercises targeting the 11 different muscle groups. Leg lifts and arm curls will not be new to anyone who has worked out. What makes it different is its form and technique.

“Weight Training Crossfit Fitness Models – Must Link to https://thoroughlyreviewed.com” by ThoroughlyReviewed https://flic.kr/p/SormZD

Imagine a slow motion replay of a televised sporting event. That’s what you’ll look like when doing Slow Burn. The goal of each exercise is to work the given muscle to the point of absolute fatigue. The motto of Frederick Hahn (the author of Slow Burn) is “failure is success”. He means that you’re aiming to work each muscle to the point of complete fatigue – where you’ve burned through its total energy storage. The Slow Burn routine is structured to achieve this failure in every muscle group.

Slow Burn is designed to have a deeper effect than normal resistance exercises. It burns through the energy of *all* your muscle fibers. That is to say, the fast, medium, and slow twitch fibers. One muscle and limb at a time, you’ll fail your way to Slow Burn success. You’ll know that each exercise is complete at the point of not being able to move another inch.

How you adjust the difficulty is also unique to Slow Burn. You’re *not* aiming to increase the number of reps each week. That always stays constant between 3 and 4 reps done over a slow 60 – 90 second time frame. In other words, you change the weight to keep the reps and timing constant.

The form of each rep is a deliberately slow movement for 10 to 12 seconds on the way up, and then again on the way back down. Maintain a slow, steady, and smooth movement, without any jerking, straining, or grunting. If you go to a gym, you’ll usually see weight training techniques that rely on quick movements and momentum. This is neither the safest or most effective approach to resistance training.

The complete Slow Burn routine takes less than half an hour to complete. Best of all, it is only necessary to do once every 7 to 10 days to maximize the benefit.

The excuse of “not enough time for exercise” disappears in light of Slow Burn. It only takes 30 minutes once every 7 to 10 days, and you can do it at home. It is safer and more thorough than typical strength training. It works through all 3 layers of your muscle, which regular weight exercises does not do. It is an essential component for your successful natural fertility plan.

Cardio Exercise for Fertility

Having a balanced approach to exercise is necessary for your successful fertility plan. The two main forms of exercise – cardio and strength training – form a polarity. There’s another polarity contained within cardio. It’s based on intensity — short bursts of activity alternated with longer stretches of recovery.

Dr. Al Sears wrote Pace: The 12-Minute Fitness Revolution, which formalized this idea. Cardio is most beneficial when done in cycles of high and low intensity. Each cycle has 30 seconds of high intensity followed by 90 seconds of slow or recovery pace.

“Stopwatch” by Ansgar Koreng https://flic.kr/p/2bx7VNy

Let’s take running as an example. The idea of PACE is to do a full out sprint for 30 seconds, followed by 90 seconds of moderate walking pace. The entire PACE routine consists of 8 such interval pairs. Begin and end with 5 minutes of stretching and warm up. You can do this whole sequence in under 30 minutes! Doing about 3 cycles of this each week is plenty to keep you in good cardio health. As your endurance increases, your heart and respiration will have better recovery time. You can apply this format of intervals to any form of cardio exercise that you like. As long as you overlay these intervals, you’ll get the benefits.

PACE, or interval training, is way more beneficial than longer form endurance exercise. Our ancient physiology is not designed to run at high intensity for extended periods. When we do, the message we give our physiology is “I’m in big trouble! Run for your life from the sabre-toothed tiger!” This bad news triggers your stress physiology. It spreads through your entire hormonal system like a social media meme.

Interval training doesn’t create this physiological stress. It is a safe and natural way to increase your level of HGH (human growth hormone). You may be familiar with HGH and its use in fertility treatments. When you apply intervals to your cardio, you benefit from a healthy level of stress that is stimulating, rather than damaging. As always, the difference between medicine and poison is in the dosage.

Where Does Exercise Fit Into Your Fertility Plan?

Your fertility plan must include a healthy dose of exercise. Its two primary functions are to create and regulate energy. It regulates your hormones, as well as cellular metabolism. It helps to create healthy eggs and sperm. It’s directly linked to the health and regularity of menstruation and ovulation.

“faltshiler / Florina female-jogger-morro-bay-coleman-avenue” by Mike Baird https://flic.kr/p/JAx46

Regular exercise improves metabolism and circulation which contribute to all reproductive functions. It also reduces stress.

Think of exercise as a fundamental part of trying to conceive. Your total fertility health depends on it. When done in moderation, it is one of the greatest hormone regulators. It also governs the health of your cellular DNA.

Exercise is normally understood as a way to burn off calories and lose weight. That’s actually one of its less significant health benefits. Your health and exercise goals change when you’re trying to start a family. There’s a big difference between getting in shape to carry a baby versus trying to fit back into your high school prom dress.

Doing either too little, or too much exercise will work against your fertility goals. If that’s you – exercising too much or too little – then you’ll need to find a healthy middle ground. Both ends of this spectrum are similarly harmful to your chances at reproduction.

Are you less active than you might like to be? Start by picking something that you actually enjoy doing. This is key for making exercise a long-lasting habit. Otherwise, you’ll deplete your willpower in trying to maintain a consistent effort. Choose an activity that best suits your personality.

Do you prefer team sports or solo activities? Does a more structured, formal activity appeal to you? Or do you thrive on more spontaneous activities, such as ringing the neighbor’s doorbell to go for a walk? You know yourself best! Use your own natural inclinations to your advantage. Never overlook the element of pleasure. It’s the factor that will make exercise an easy habit to maintain.

There’s another general key to follow in your fertility exercise plan. That is, to find a healthy balance between cardio exercises and strength training. The polarity between these creates a complete package. It takes two to make a baby – in this case, two types of exercise!

Nature is called ‘wise’ for a reason. She makes sure that babies go to the parents who are on track to stay healthy for the long haul. The nine months of pregnancy is only the beginning. Healthy, moderate doses of exercise send a signal to nature that these parents-to-be are likely going to be around for the long haul. Nature sends them to the front of the line at the baby store.

Goji Your Sperm and Egg Health

The goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that’s native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.

Hawaiian Goji Berries (Lycium sandwicense) by Forest Starr and Kim Starr https://flic.kr/p/SNAMsq

They’ve been known to elevate mood and also libido given their hormone balancing qualities. Goji berries help to improve fertility by increasing blood flow to the free-floating embryo affecting the likelihood of implantation by thickening uterine lining.

You can also strengthen the immune system with this powerful antioxidant. This is important when correcting the bioterrain of the host receiving new life. Goji berries promote healthy new cell growth and protect the liver. They boost energy levels, even in times of stress and fatigue.

Goji Berries as Nutrient Rich Superfood

Amongst the many essential antioxidants, amino acids and numerous minerals, there are two main elements in the goji berry that stand out:

    • L-Arginine.
    • Zinc.

L-­Arginine improves the reproductive health of both men and women by:

  • Increasing blood circulation to the uterus, ovaries and genitals.
  • Increases Nitric Oxide levels ­- supports healthy inflammation levels which may help to prevent uterine fertility issues such as fibroids, endometriosis and PCOS.
  • Supports normal sperm production and motility.
  • Encourages better production of cervical mucus through improved blood flow.
  • Supports a healthy libido.

Equally as important, zinc is necessary in the production of protein and DNA as well as the operation in over a hundred different enzymes. In addition, this super nutrient also carries out central cell functions including repair, growth and membrane transport.

For women, zinc helps with:

  • Mature egg production that are ripe for fertilization.
  • Maintaining proper follicular fluid levels for eggs to travel successfully through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus for implantation.
  • Hormone stability for estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels stable throughout the entire menstrual cycle.

For men, zinc is necessary for:

  • the creation of the outer membrane and tail of a sperm. Without it, the sperm cannot mature to a stage that gives them the mobility and strength to make the long journey through the vagina, cervix and into the uterus for fertilization to take place.
  • Chromosomal changes: low levels of zinc may also be the reason for chromosomal defects in the sperm, which could cause a miscarriage even if fertilization and implantation do take place.

Nuts and Seeds for Fertility

Nuts and seeds are some of the most nutrient dense and delicious foods on earth. They are an important part of fertility nutrition, pregnancy nutrition, and beyond, because they supply the body with ample fiber, protein, minerals and essential fatty acids. Proteins are required for building and repair of the body’s tissues in general, and baby-making in particular. The amino acids that make up protein are the building blocks of the body’s cells, and is also an excellent source of energy.

“nuts” by theilr https://flic.kr/p/djKiZh

You’ll need to know how to consume and store nuts and seeds for fertility health. All nuts and seeds should be consumed in their raw form, or as close to raw as possible, to ensure all nutrients stay intact. Essential fatty acids and zinc are especially sensitive to heat and can be destroyed when heated.

Nuts and seeds with the highest content of protein (per ounce) :

  • Peanuts 6.7 g
  • Sunflower seeds 6 g
  • Flax Seeds 6 g
  • Almonds 6 g
  • Sesame seeds 5 g
  • Walnuts 4 g

How Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid supports fertility:

  • Regulate hormones.
  • Increase cervical mucous production.
  • Promote ovulation and improve the quality of the uterus by increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs.
  • It helps to regulate the inflammatory response, thereby aiding fertility issues such as endometriosis, PCOS, and uterine fibroids.
  • It’s important for proper sperm production.
  • In pregnancy, omega-3 EFA can help support proper nervous system and brain development.

The best nuts and seeds for omega 3 are:

  • Walnuts – 1/4 cup = 2,270mg
  • Flax seeds – 2 Tbs = 3,510mg
  • Hemp seeds – 3 Tbs = 3,000mg
  • Chia seeds – 1Tbs = 2,300mg

Zinc

  • Zinc works with more than 300 different enzymes in the body to keep it running smoothly. It is important for fertility because it plays an important role in proper development of ova and sperm, hormonal balance, prevention of chromosomal defects, and prevention of recurrent miscarriage.

The best nuts and seeds for zinc are:

  • Pumpkin – 1/4 cup = 2.7mg
  • Sesame – 1/4 cup =2.8mg

Vitamin E

  • This vitamin is essential to fertility. In fact, the chemical name for the most active form of vitamin alpha-tocopherol comes from the work tokos which means “offspring,” and phero, which means “to bear”. So in order to bear children, you must have adequate levels of vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant which has been shown to be supportive of nerve cells, red blood cells, the liver and the immune system.

The best nuts and seeds for vitamin E are:

  • Sunflower Seeds – 1/4 cup = 18.10mg
  • Almonds – 1/4 cup = 8.97mg

How to Get the Most Out of Your Nuts and Seeds

  • Eat nuts and seeds that are organic and raw (see more below if you are sensitive to raw nuts).
  • Purchase nuts still in their shell.
  • Choose raw nut and seed butters or make your own.
  • Grind small fresh seeds like flax, chia, sesame to get the full benefits. That’s because small seeds usually pass through the digestive tract undigested.
  • Sprout raw nuts to help your body to digest them.
  • Make your own nut and seed milks.
  • Purchase nuts & seeds that have been stored in the refrigerated section of the store. This is more common in health foods stores.
  • For longer-term storage, keep in an airtight glass container in the fridge or freezer.

What to Avoid:

  • Avoid roasted nuts and seeds, especially those roasted in oil. Nuts roasted in oil may be high in free radicals, which damages cellular health. Dry roasted is better, but raw or sprouted is best.
  • Avoid salted nuts and seeds, unless you lightly salt them right before eating. The salt for soaking in brine water is fine.
  • Avoid purchasing nuts and seeds that have been stored on the shelf. The oils go rancid quite quickly.
  • Avoid roasted nut and seed and butters made from them.

Important Note About Peanut Allergy & Pregnancy:

  • Allergies to peanuts are serious. Some studies suggest that when a pregnant woman consumes peanut products, the fetus may be exposed to peanut allergens. This means a developing baby may be at higher risk for developing a peanut allergy later in life. This is especially concerning for parents with peanut allergy. It is suggested that pregnant mothers with a family history of peanut allergy on either side of the baby’s family, should avoid eating peanut products during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Three Facts You Need To Know About Dental Mercury, By Amanda Just and John Kall, DMD of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)

This article has been reprinted with permission from worldmercuryproject.org.

1. All silver-colored dental fillings, also called amalgams, contain approximately 50% mercury, and dental mercury is still being used in the USA.

In 2013, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) formalized a global convention to reduce mercury usage, which includes initiatives to phase down the use of dental mercury.  The UNEP mercury convention will come into force on August 16, 2017, and as part of this effort, the European Union is taking action on dental mercury.  A new EU mercury regulation plans to prohibit the use of amalgam for vulnerable populations (pregnant or breastfeeding women, children under 15 years old) and provide for discussion about the feasibility of ending dental amalgam use in the European Union by 2030.

Prior to the 2017 ratification of UNEP’s mercury treaty, other countries had already taken protective actions against dental mercury.  For example, Norway and Sweden have banned dental amalgam, and Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Japan have reportedly limited its use to less than 5% of tooth restorations.  However, mercury fillings are still used on about 45% of direct dental restorations worldwide, including in the United States.

All silver colored dental fillings, which are still being used in the USA, contain about 50% mercury.

2. Mercury vapor is released from these fillings into the human body, and this dental mercury has been linked to health risks.

Mercury vapor is continuously emitted from dental amalgam which means that people are directly exposed to the mercury in their mouths.  The output of mercury vapor can be intensified by the number of fillings and other activities, such as chewing, teeth-grinding, and the consumption of hot liquids.  Mercury is also known to be released during the placement, replacement, and removal of dental mercury amalgam fillings.

Scientific researchers have associated this mercury in amalgam fillings with Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), antibiotic resistance, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, autoimmune disorders/immunodeficiency, cardiovascular problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, hearing loss, infertility, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and an array of other health problems. Click here to learn more about the potential health risks of dental mercury.

3. Safety measures can reduce the amount of mercury vapor released during the removal of amalgam fillings.

Some patients require the removal of silver amalgam fillings due to device failure, while others opt for the removal of silver amalgam fillings because of cosmetic purposes (white-colored fillings match the teeth better) or because they prefer to have dental fillings that do not contain mercury. However, the process of drilling out amalgam fillings liberates quantities of mercury vapor and fine particulates that can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs, and this is potentially harmful to patients, dentists, dental workers, and their fetuses.

The application of specific safety measures can reduce the potential negative health outcomes of mercury exposure during the amalgam removal process.  It is crucial for patients to know what these safety measures are so that they can insure these practices are implemented during the removal of amalgam fillings.

These writers co-authored a chapter about the health risks of dental mercury that was published in a textbook about epigenetics from Springer in 2016.

Amanda Just, MS:  Ms. Just is the Program Director of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxiciology.  She is also a freelance writer and dental consumer who has shared her writings about the impact of dental mercury amalgam fillings with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and various NGOs.

John Kall, DMD:  Dr. Kall serves as the Chairman of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxiocology’s Board of Directors.  He is a member of the American Dental Association, a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), Past President of the KY Chapter of the AGD, a member of the Louisville Dental Society, and a member of the Kentucky Dental Association.

Why You Need ‘Living Water’ On Your Fertility Plan

Is the water you’re drinking full of life? The critical aspect to water quality is the degree to which it is ‘alive’ or ‘dead.’ We have to go back to the topic of minerals again to understand the meaning of “living” water. The highest definition we can give for cellular health is ‘a free flow of energy’. This depends on the mineral balance in the water molecules.

“black light” by David DeHetre https://flic.kr/p/8Dajhd

The words ‘hydration’ and ‘hydrogen’ share the same roots. These are ‘hydra’ (water) and ‘gen’ (generative energy). The transfer of hydrogen electrons at the cellular level is the flow of life energy. Water is the biochemical basis of life. It is identical with life itself.

This connects to our previous discussion on the pH balance of your diet and lifestyle. The term “pH” stands for “potential for hydrogen” . Your water needs to activate this potential, just as your diet and lifestyle do. This is another form of the concept of “alkalinity”, as applied to the quality of your water.

The contaminants in water create the toxicity and hormone disruption that you’d expect. Not only that, but they also kill its “aliveness.” They impede the free-flow of hydrogen ions. You could be drinking lots of water but still starving your cells of energy! In addition to drinking enough water, you need to ensure it is good quality, clean water.

We’ll be bumping into this topic again very shortly. In the meantime, stay hydrated with good quality water! It is not optional on your fertility plan.
