What Sources of Folic Acid Are Best For Fertility?

Folic acid (also known as Vitamin B9) always comes up as a topic of prenatal health. Not only is it an essential nutrient for a growing baby but also for the pre-fertility health of the parents. It is necessary for regularity of ovulation, for starters, as well as sperm health.

We usually only recommend supplements for their intended purpose. That is, to supplement a healthy diet and not replace it. We also emphasize food-based vitamins over synthetics. Your body does not recognize those manufactured pills. They’ll go from one hatch to the other (mouth to rectum). They are not absorbed very well at all. It would be more efficient to dump those into the toilet, where they’d end up anyways.

Real food and food-sourced vitamins are going to give you a whole lot more of what your body needs.

Which Foods are Rich in Folic Acid?

  • Dark leafy greens. Including spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, mustard greens, romaine lettuce, asparagus and broccoli.
  • Fruits like papaya, oranges, grapefruits, strawberries, and raspberries.
  • Love on your guacamole! One cup of avocados has approximately 22% of your daily folate needs! It’s also high in fatty acids, vitamin K, and dietary fiber.
  • Peas, beans, and lentils are also high in folic acid. Go for lentils, pinto beans, and garbanzo beans (chickpeas). Also black beans, navy beans, kidney beans, lima beans, split peas, green peas, and green beans. With one bowl of lentils, you’ll have met 90% of your daily folate needs! This is better than what any multivitamin could ever offer you.
  • Nuts and seeds are good sources of folate. You can try almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds. Almonds and peanuts also rank high in folic acid. Try sprinkling them on salad. You can also take them to the next level by sprouting them. Your future offspring will love you for it!
  • Other foods high in folic acid are okra, cauliflower, beets, celery, carrots, squash, and corn. You can cut brussel sprouts in half and roast them face down in olive oil and garlic.

Many maternal vitamins tout folate in their ingredients, however, it is folic acid you’re seeking in your diet. In this case, Mother Nature knows best. Her source is always the best choice so enjoy her bounty and make it part of your natural fertility plan.

Follow Your Taste Buds For Maximum Fertility

Let your taste buds lead you to maximum fertility. Wait, what?!?

I’m not talking about additives, preservatives, or artificial flavors which trick your taste buds. Neither do I mean emotionally-driven food cravings. These are feeding your emotional rather than physical body. There’s a world of difference between natural desires, and cravings or addictions.

I’m talking about being Adam or Eve, plucking your food straight out of the “Garden of Eden”. This is the context of having healthy, natural foods to choose from. Stock your fridge to be as close as possible to this ideal at all times.

Pay close attention to your tongue’s feedback. It’s the “Yum!” factor which tells you that a food has a high nutrient/mineral density. High nutrient-density foods are what your body needs to create a balanced pH. And balanced pH is what you need to be in a perfect state of fertility.

This is why we ask you to measure your pH level every morning as part of your fertility plan. Your pH is the “potential for hydrogen ion transfer” your cells have. This is a measure of how well energy will flow. It’s based on your mineral balance. In other words, your pH measurement shows you if you’re on track with all the fertility minerals you need. At the dietary level, this is a function of the “nutrient density” of your food.

Your tongue and taste buds function as nutrient-density detectors. The ‘Yum!’ factor is your subjective experience of this objective mineral event. This pleasure signal is telling you to “eat more of *this* food!”. It’s a measurement of the mineral density of a given food. It also gives you direct feedback on how much of it you need at this moment in time. Your body makes dynamic adjustments for your moment-to-moment nutritional needs.

There’s another sensation that works alongside “yum”. It’s the qualitative feeling of “satisfaction”. Don’t mistake this for plain mechanical “fullness”. Be watchful, as with nutrient dense foods you’ll arrive there quicker. In one  bite, you are satisfying true nutritional needs. But then in the next. you may shift to habitual “filling the tank” mode. This is also why organic food isn’t as expensive as you think. Organically grown and produced food has much higher nutrient-density. You get more nutritional value from smaller portions.

Also, notice the difference between your ‘true desires’ and ‘cravings’. Hold tight to your relationship with your taste buds and their love of nature’s foods. Food marketers and engineers work hard to manipulate your taste buds. They have a billion dollar budget aimed at sabotaging your built-in nutrient detector. Food marketing tries to entice you onto the sugar and carb train. Their goal is to get you hooked on their profit-dense foods. Never forget nutrient-density as one of the highest health principles to follow.

Your taste buds are designed to detect nutrient density. Nutrient density is necessary for pH balance. And pH balance lays a foundation for healthy fertility. THIS is the flavor train you want to ride.

Nutrient-dense foods are like “astronaut food”. They pack the most value into the smallest package. The nutrition-to-waste ratio is high. Organic, unprocessed meats, vegetables, and fruits are nutrient-density’s best friends. Your tongue knew all of this long before science did.

Why ‘Letting Go’ Is The Key Fertility Emotion

Diet isn’t the only possible cause of an acidic pH reading. Your cellular physiology also responds to your state of mind. Chronic disappointment or sadness impregnates your cells with a kind of “grief disease”.

Let’s use one of our chief homeopathic fertility remedies to illustrate. The remedy we often use for chronic grief is called Natrum Muriaticum (Nat-m.). It has a state of mind which cannot “let go.” It can’t let go of the thoughts or emotions of grief, sadness, or “what should have been.”

Physical symptoms may include constipation. This is the body’s way of “holding on” to its past. Chronic sinus infections are another example of the body not letting go. In this case, the accumulation of un-cried tears block the sinuses. Antibiotics will do nothing to release this emotion.

The emotion of Nat-m instinctively seeks to protect itself. “I got hurt in the past, and will never let that happen again.” This personality doesn’t allow anyone to get too close, in the emotional sense. Any emotional bonding or intimacy raises subconscious fears of getting hurt again. A more superficial pattern of social interactions is typical. They “hold their cards close to their chest,” as the expression goes.

We’re portraying the more extreme version of this emotional state. The average case of Nat-m is not this overt. They may have close, intimate relationships, in contradiction to the above definition. Yet, a Nat-m state may still exist at the level of cellular functioning. This creates a state of cellular acidosis. As you know, this goes against the functions of natural fertility.

A miscarriage could be the trigger of a Nat-m state. Or even your general perception of “failure” at not being able to conceive. The telltale signs of monthly blood in your underwear can reinforce this. You only crave to see the plus sign in the glass frame of a pregnancy test. Disappointment and “holding on” may be your natural emotional response.

You may even feel that it is your fault, somehow. You may project that grief onto your own physiology, your parents, or your partner. This means you’ll have a hard time receiving water, nutrition, or even a new life. You may find yourself irritable at this point. To some degree, your worldview becomes colored by this Nat-m state.

There’s an interesting phenomena we’ve observed around this. It illustrates how the idea of “letting go” connects to fertility. You may have heard stories of an ‘infertile’ couple suddenly receiving a surprise pregnancy? This typically happens right after they’ve adopted a baby.

That’s because they have finally “let go” of their attachment. They are no longer attached to conceiving a baby, and open themselves up to new possibilities. This pure act of “letting go” unblocks their fertility function. New hope replaces grief and disappointment.

We’ve seen this identical phenomenon in couples who needed Nat-m in their fertility plan. With the correct, individualized dose and potency, the effect can be dramatic. In all homeopathic healing, the state of mind shifts first. Then the physical symptoms follow suit. Signs of improvement start along with this prescription. Subtle signs of improved sleep, mood, or an overall sense of wellbeing come first. Fertility and conception are usually not far behind.

The mind leads, and the body follows. The mind “lets go”, and the cellular functions return to normal. Proper pH balance returns, and the vaginal mucous creates a fertility friendly environment. The effort you’ve put into a healthy diet finally starts to bear fruit.

Note that ‘positive thinking’ is not enough to reverse such a state. Especially when it has penetrated the cellular functioning. Visualization or meditation cannot “cure” a deeper Nat-m state of mind. Do you feel that you’ve “run out of rope” with diet and lifestyle changes? This idea can breathe new life into your fertility plan. The “state of mind” of your cells is as powerful as a healthy fertility diet.

Would You Take Fertility Advice From a Dentist?

Would you take fertility advice from a dentist? Insights can come from unexpected places. Dr. Weston A. Price’s research led him to some surprising conclusions. He was a 20th century dentist with a holistic perspective on health. He noticed the deterioration of his patients’ dental health, and wanted to find out why. Could modern, industrialized food be to blame?

Dr. Price set out to compare the modern diet with more traditional approaches. He travelled around the world to study the diets of indigenous peoples. He wanted to find out the relationship between diet and dental health. He noticed that traditional, natural diets always lead to better dental health. Teeth were straight, strong, and lasted for a lifetime.

He also noticed that fertility health was much better. Here are some of the key points from Dr. Price’s studies:

      • The same factors that create good dental health likewise create healthy fertility. These include good pH balance, nutrient density from whole and raw foods. Of course, there were never any additives or preservatives.
      • He made a most striking observation related to childbirth. With a natural diet, a wide jaw and facial structure also corresponded to a wide, open hip structure. Birthing complications are a rare event in this state.
      • What happens after the introduction of industrialized food into a culture? You’ll see the the open jaw and hip structures narrow with each generation.
      • What happens after the introduction of industrialized food into a culture? You’ll see the the open jaw and hip structures narrow with each generation. Think of the increasing number of birth interventions we have now. C-sections, interventions, and medicalized birth are the result of our big diet shifts.

Health has always been an inside-out job. What’s “good for you” as a whole person, is generally good for all your “parts.” What’s good for your dental health will also be good for your fertile bits as well. If a dentist gives you advice for your fertility, you may want to take note! That is, if he looks at health from a holistic perspective.

Do You Know How To Measure Your pH?

Step one in every conception plan is to balance your pH. I’m speaking to both of you! It still takes two to make a baby. The brief 48-hour fertility window around ovulation depends on this. It’s up to you to set the right conditions for the sperm to meet the egg. If either of your systems are acidic, the odds plummet.

The pH scale goes from 0 to 14. A pH of 7.0 and higher is alkaline, and anything lower is acidic. The healthy target range is slight alkalinity between 7.3 and 7.45. A much higher level is too alkaline, which is as problematic as being acidic. Men don’t produce enough healthy sperm when they are too acidic.

The pH scale is logarithmic instead of linear. This means, for example, that a pH of 4 is ten times more acidic than pH 5. It’s 100 times (10 times 10) more acidic than pH 6. You can see that every increase or decrease of 1 point changes the concentration by a factor of 10x. The further down the scale your reading is, the more nutritional effort it will take to get you back to neutral. In other words, each step you get further away from neutral requires a 10x increase in your effort.

Litmus paper is what you will use to measure your pH. You can pick it up at your local pharmacy or order it online. Amazon can deliver it right to your door. It’s possible to test your saliva, but urine will give the more accurate reading.

Take your reading from your first two pees of the morning. The first one before hydration, and the second after. A healthy pH will tend to show the first in the low acidic range and the second in the alkalinity sweet spot. That’s because the first one indicates all the metabolites that have built up overnight. Your reading after hydration tends to show your typical level of pH balance.

Does your second daily pH reading tend to show you in this alkalinity sweet spot? If so, then you have a solid foundation to build your fertility plan upon. This simple, objective measurement is as fundamental as tracking when your ovulation is.

Healthy Fats for Healthy Fertility

Are you getting enough healthy fats? They’re essential for fertility, and for your health in general. And don’t forget – good fats are not what make you fat. Sugar and carbs do.

Healthy fats are essential for regulating fertility hormones, menstruation, and the timing of ovulation. They increase cervical mucus which helps mobilize sperm when it’s time to meet the egg.

The male reproductive system is also regulated by good fats. Prostate health, and healthy sperm production depend on them. Retrain your mind to think “Low fertility” whenever you sees a food labelled “Low fat.”

Derive your healthy fats from animal and vegetable sources including:

    • Animal:
      • Fish oil.
      • Whole fat, organic, raw milk is a fertility superfood. Pasteurization destroys the enzymes in raw milk.
      • The by-products of free-range, organically raised animals:
        • Butter, lard, cheese, and cream.
      • Find a good source of healthy meats and animal fats. You’ll want free-range, organically raised animals. Avoid all the antibiotics and hormone drugs found in commercial meat and dairy.
    • Vegetable:
      • Flax (cold-pressed, organic) and borage oil.
      • Olive oil (cold-pressed, organic).
      • Sesame oil.
      • “Tropical” oils of coconut, palm, and palm kernel.
      • Cod liver oil. It’s an especially good source of Vitamin D over the long dark winter.
  • The bad fats to avoid:
    • Trans-fats: essentially, all the “man-made” fats. For example : margarine, cakes, pies, cookies, crackers, microwaves popcorn, breakfast sandwiches, cream-filled candies, doughnuts, frozen pizza and fast food like french fries.

Don’t fall for “the cholesterol myth.” It’s a marketing ploy invented by the Statin-drug industry. They want you on their drugs. “Low fat,” and “low cholesterol” are two of the biggest dietary threats to your fertility health.

The Cancer Connection – Genetics, Infertility, and You

There’s a close relationship between the factors of infertility, and a predisposition to cancer. We all have cancer cells in our body. It’s a normal part of our physiology.

Your body is in a constant state of recreating itself. Old cells are constantly being replacing by new ones. Your body’s cell factory is busier than Santa’s workshop on December 23rd.

But even in a state of perfect health, some newly created cells are defective. This is to be expected with such high speed production. A healthy immune system disposes of these defective cells immediately.

These cancer cells only become a health problem when chronic stress or illness prevents your immune system from doing its job. Defective cells can start to accumulate. If this trend continues, you cross a biological threshold, and “cancer” is now a pathology. Your inner “PacMan” can’t gobble up the defective cells as fast as they’re being created.

Eat well, get plenty of sleep, minimize toxins – I think we all got this memo on cancer prevention. But perfect diet and lifestyle aren’t enough for cancer prevention. What if there’s an underlying predisposition to cancer in your family tree? What if you’ve been dealt a stacked deck of genetic cards?

This is where cancer meets infertility. The genetic predisposition to cancer also shares many elements with infertility. The big underlying pattern is what we could call “reversal”.  That is, the natural flow of life is reversed, and starts flowing in the wrong direction. In a state of natural health, your life energy flows from the inside out. This is true at both levels – biological and psychological. In cancer and infertility, it’s like the flow is going the wrong way down a one-way street. You can imagine what that would feel like!

“Stress” is part of life, but how we handle it makes the difference. The cancer state of mind tends to internalize stress. It’s a “grin and bear it” attitude. Life energy is flowing more in than out. Sadness, anxiety, or disappointment all get stored up rather than expressed.

This same pattern is mirrored at the cellular level. It disrupts the all-important fertility factor of pH balance. If cancer is in your family tree, pH balance will be an uphill battle for you. Even with a “perfect” diet, your cells will struggle to function naturally.

This pattern goes opposite to natural fertility. While the state of mind internalizes stress, the cells become acidic. Natural flow is from the inside out, but it’s reversed here. The state of mind reinforces the acidic cellular physiology, and vice versa. It’s a vicious circle.

How can you tell if the tendency to cancer is in your family tree? There are subtle signs, beyond an obvious medical history of cancer. Conditions such as chronic fatigue, depression, or anxiety may exist. Trouble with sugar metabolism, diabetes – or even an extreme “sweet tooth” counts.

The underlying state of mind is one of “resignation”. It’s a stance of reacting to external forces, rather than having a self-directed posture in life. A state of over-sensitivity may display physically or emotionally.

These are just hints, but they all illustrate the underlying reversed flow of life energy. Your body does everything it can to reverse this pattern. It chews through a lot of your resources along the way, including procreativity.

This is not a part of cancer we usually hear about. It’s the very early part of the disease which begins with a reversal in some of the most basic life functions.

What’s the importance of this to your fertility plan? It’s to realize that there are non-lifestyle reasons your pH level may seem more acidic than you’d expect. Promise me you won’t reach for strong fertility hormone prescriptions out of panic! Start by restoring your basic life and health functions first.

Who’s Messin’ With My Taste Buds?

How long does it take to eat a raisin?

We found out one night at a mindfulness workshop. Our yoga instructor friend was the presenter. She started by giving us one raisin each.

“Don’t put it in your mouth yet. Contemplate its shape and texture.”

We noticed its wrinkly contours. Even the tiny sensation of its weight in the palm of our hands.

Then we finally got to put it in our mouths. Our goal was to be sure to take three minutes to chew it one hundred times. It was an exercise of painful enlightenment. The taste of that raisin was mind-blowing! It was like eating a raisin for the very first time.

No, you don’t need to eat this way!

We’re reminding you to stay in touch with the simple pleasures of natural foods. Your body has a feedback loop regulating your nutritional intake. It starts with a sensation of flavor, and ends with a feeling of “satisfaction”. This works best when you stay in the realm of natural foods.

Beware the trappings of “convenience” foods. They come from the multi-billion dollar research budget of the food industry. Their intention is to design food that overrides your tongue’s innate wisdom. They want to lead you astray from the simple foods of nature. They turn your “nutrient density” detector into an addiction trigger. Your tongue starts to work for the enemy as a double agent. Their goal is to keep coming back for more “hits” of empty nutrition. Every food additive sends false signals to your tongue.

We could imagine a whole book called “Who’s Been Messing with my Tastebuds?” Or its sequel – “90% of The Modern Grocery Store is a Vast Wasteland of Empty Calories.” The sophistication of this food science is quite a sight to behold.

These clever scientists are always finding new ways to artificially trigger your “yum!” response. Yet without the nutrient density to go with it. Nutrient density only eats into their profit margins. Natural eating habits  do not lend themselves to high profits.

Think of your local grocery store as the testing laboratory. Most of the “food” in the grocery store is part of a grand experiment in addiction and profit. Your tongue  and wallet are the targeted guinea pigs.

Your food addictions and compulsions are their success. The food industry needs loyal, repeat customers. Hormone disruption is an unfortunate casualty along the way. True nutrition is not the name of this game.

What happens when your tongue becomes dependent on artificial stimulation? Its ability to detect nutrient density weakens. You lose sight of what you’re putting in your mouth. Are you consuming any GMOs, additives, fillers, or flavor enhancers? Worse, have any of these ingredients become habitual? It’s very easy for addiction to trump intuition.

Stay true to your fertility plan. Choose natural foods originating as far as possible from food engineers and marketers. Let your tongue do what it does best – detect nutrient density. Keep it away from addictive sensations. Real food enhances your health. It should never provoke side effects. It is meant to make you healthy, and fertile.

Nutrient Density Shopping Tips For The Modern Grocery Store

“If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space.”

~Stephen Hunt

You may have seen this statement used somewhere before as a motivational quote. The idea being something like living with courage and individuality. It means something quite different to us. We’re offering it to you as instructions for how to grocery shop for your optimal fertility diet.

What’s your first thought when you go to the grocery store? Remind yourself of the following from now on. They put all the fresh food around the outer perimeter of the store. This is where there’s electricity to power coolers and freezers to keep food fresh.

There’s very little “food” in the inner aisles. Think of them as science experiments you’d rather not be the guinea pig for. The average “expiry date” for these foods is somewhere in the next century.

When my kids were little, I used to say to them, “Always eat as close to God as possible, the way nature intended.” Imagine how your great-grandparents would have eaten. What was their relationship to food? For starters, they had no access to processed, chemically-laden foods. The only preservatives were the traditional methods of fermenting or pickling. Their generation did not suffer from our epidemic level of chronic health issues. Eczema, allergies, and asthma were rare. Food was still food. There were no labels to read and their grocery stores were MUCH smaller. They ate to live, they didn’t live to eat!

The outer perimeter of your grocery store is a good source of healthy food. But there’s an even better option. That is, getting your produce and meats at your local farmers’ market. There, you have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with your farmer. You can learn about their approach to farming, and know where your food comes from. You may even get the chance to visit their farm, and see its operation for yourself. The life energy contained in local food begins with the human care that goes into producing it. It hasn’t travelled on the back of a truck for many days on end. It’s about as direct a relationship you can get from farm to plate. Freshness and nutrient density are still at their peak.

We live in the age of food labels, so it’s critical to learn how to read them. A walk through your grocery store feels like an advanced chemistry class. Research the different names for common additives, preservatives, and flavor enhancers. MSG, for example, is an unhealthy additive that hides behind a bunch of different names.

Also, beware of sweeteners of all kinds – they’re in everything! HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) has many alternative names to watch out for. ‘Crystalline fructose’, or ‘glucose-fructose’ are two examples. Most packaged food has some kind of modified or artificial sweetener. Find out the names of the most common ones, and their derivatives. Start with the big ones, like ‘sucralose’, ‘maltitol’, and ‘maltodextrin’. You’ll soon become like a seasoned bouncer rejecting teenagers with fake ID.

The more conscious food consumers are, the more clever marketers have had to become. They are always trying to outsmart you. They’ll change the names of bad ingredients to be healthier sounding. Bring a running list of your ingredient research notes to the grocery store, to know what to avoid buying. Try to make this a fun task for yourself. Pretend you’re playing a hilarious new board game called “Sneaky Synonyms”. The grand prize is your own health.

How Mineral Deficiency Causes Infertility

If you’re deficient in minerals, your body will start to turn off its fertility functions. Why would it do this? It’s because your body operates more like a kingdom than a democracy. I know this idea feels offensive to our modern ears. We don’t condone political systems which play “favorites.” We wish our body would treat each organ as an equal.

Our physiology is quite primitive, in this sense. It plays favorites when in “survival” mode. You will sacrifice one organ or function to save a more noble one. The “king” and “queen” (brain and heart) are the most important players. Their protection comes at the expense of the “lesser” organs. When there isn’t enough nutrition to go around, the peasants go hungry long before the king or queen have to. There’s no “one person, one vote” philosophy here.

Let’s take a practical example of this concept. Calcium is an essential mineral for fertility. A systemic calcium deficiency will plague some organs and cells more than others. Your body will “sacrifice” its calcium levels in one place to pump them up elsewhere. Calcium fuels the sperm’s whip-cracking snap of its tail to thrust it towards the egg. Calcium in your reproductive tract is one of the first sources that gets raided. The meeting of the sperm and egg is thus postponed.

Here’s nature’s bottom line : it’s not prudent to give a baby to a couple with nutritional deficiencies. If it’s already a stretch to feed two mouths, then don’t add a third. Your body treats such deficiencies as a temporary “state of emergency”. Reproduction gets put on hold for the time being. Pure survival overtakes the “luxury” of reproduction. The body must choose between the lesser of two evils. When it comes to survival, “fear” wins out over “love”. It tries to conserve what it has instead over creating something new. Fertility is one of the first things to go, in such a state. With the deficiencies in our modern food chain, can you see why fertility is becoming epidemic?

You want to keep your fertility physiology focused on the love/expansion side. This is the opposite of survival. Love and expansion begin with proper nutrition. It activates your entire reproductive system. In this sense, you can think of your pH strips as “love meters”. Self-love and self-care are the foundation of proper fertility nutrition.

In the grand scheme of healthcare, fertility issues represent a minor challenge. They’re an early warning sign to what could become more serious health challenges down the road. Consider fertility difficulties as a ‘blessing’ in this sense. It’s actually alerting you to an early stage of nutritional deficiency. The good news, is that it’s still easy to correct at this point. You correct your fertility state WHILE prevent long-term health issues. It’s a true win-win for you and the baby you’re seeking to conceive.

Daily pH readings of your urine or saliva are perfect for managing this. They’re a window into your current nutritional state. You can expect to create improvements over days or weeks. Mineral nutrition is the primary tool here. Keep nursing your pH levels back into a healthy range. Consistent daily alkaline readings is what you’re aiming for. It tells you when your mineral intake is fully aligned with your fertility goals. Your body will switch its expansive “love” functions back on at the cellular level. Fertility will follow… naturally.
