Are You Eating A Spermicidal Diet?

Are you eating a ‘spermicidal diet’ without knowing it? In other words, are you following the fads of ‘low fat’ or ‘high carb’? These are direct paths to infertility, not to mention other major diseases. It’s bad dietary advice generally, but especially when trying to conceive.

These fads are the kingpins in the ‘spermicidal diet’. They sound healthy, but create a state of acidosis, which is the opposite of what you want. Doctors miss this basic fertility factor. It’s why they throw around the “unexplained infertility” label so often. Fertility drugs are often prescribed prematurely, costing you extra time and money. Not to mention the side effects! Correcting your fertility diet is a simple and effective solution.

Coffee, carbs, and all forms of sugar will kill your chances at conception. Most ‘convenience’ foods are quite inconvenient for your fertility. Drugs (both prescription and recreational), and alcohol multiply these negative effects. The trappings of the ‘modern’ diet work against your ‘primitive’ reproductive biology.

There’s a long history of food industry lobbyists pushing to get the wrong food advice in front of your face. Beware the health myth of the low-fat diet, and the way that marketing presents the high carb to you. Your job is to tune out this bad nutritional advice, and focus on fertility foods. What the heck! Follow this healthy way of eating for the rest of your life.

“Save the environment!” Your vaginal environment, that is. Conception doesn’t occur if the sperm cannot reach the egg. A ‘spermicidal diet’ makes your vaginal biochemistry inhospitable to sperm. A healthy fertility diet ensures that your “fertility window” will open during ovulation. Testing your pH level every day is an essential part of your fertility regimen. Adjustments to diet and lifestyle are the primary way to balance your pH.

Reverse this acidifying trend in your diet. Focus on good, basic nutrition in vegetables, fermented food, and meats. Tailor the above to your unique body type. Limit high glycemic foods in your diet. You’ll even want to limit fruits, as all forms of sugar can tip the scales.

Make sure your alkalizing practices include:

  • Nutrient dense foods like meats, vegetables, nuts and some berries. Follow either the Weston A. Price or the Ketogenic diet.
  • Practice “Sequential eating”. Drink water before the meal, and then order your food in increasing density. Remember the traditional order in a restaurant of “Drinks. Soup or salad. Appetizer. Dense main course eaten at the end.”
  • Be sure you drink between 2-3 liters of water per day, and increase depending on how active you are.

Avoid the following acidifying practices:

  • Drugs, alcohol
  • Dehydration (don’t wait until thirsty!)
  • Processed food, fast food, fried food
  • Sugars and refined grains
  • Overeating and emotional eating
  • High carb, low-fat diets

The “Make or Break” Factor of Your Natural Fertility Success : pH Balance

This may not have been your conversational topic over dinner last night. I don’t begin discussions around vaginal pH, either. But, if you’re aiming for natural conception, it’ll become your top daily thought. The sperm and egg cannot meet until the conditions are right.

Are you on good terms with your microbiome? This is the flora and fauna that makes up your gut health. Probiotics are great for creating more life-sustaining organisms in your body. Also, a well-balanced pH helps to preserve it. It has a bearing on your fertility status, as well.

Your vaginal pH stays in a acidic state for most of the month. This is part of your healthy immune function. It ranges from 3.8 – 4.5 during the non-fertile part of the cycle. This healthy range helps to prevent infections of bacterial vaginosis and yeast overgrowth. This is why it’s important to take a probiotic after having been on antibiotics.

Luteinizing hormone (LH) increases during ovulation, which shifts the cervical mucous to alkaline. This lifts the normal barrier of mild vaginal acidosis. It creates a 48 hour window when the sperm has a fighting chance to make it through to the egg. That is, as long as the couple’s pH balance is in a healthy range. If not, the fertility window remains closed.

There are many factors affecting pH, including diet, hydration, and other lifestyle issues. Many couples consume an acidifying ‘spermicidal diet’ due to misguided advice. The emphasis on low-fat, high-carb eating is one of the reasons that infertility is on the rise.

If your pH balance is off, then your chances of conception approach zero. The vaginal environment will not allow sperm to pass. Nor will the sperm be models of vital health, either. This is why pH balance is the very first thing we ask couples to correct on their journey to fertility.
