Well, good morning. This is Jeff from Arcanum Wholistic Clinic. And I just have a few minutes before I get started with my morning. I wanted to share some of the things that are in this article I’m looking at. This article was published a couple of days ago on bustle.com. It’s called “9 Fascinating Things No One Ever Taught You About Male Fertility“. And let’s see.
I’ve highlighted some things just to remind myself. Right at the beginning is a very interesting opening. It’s setting the context with talking about the importance of male fertility. And it sets the context with this statistic. It says, “infertility impacts one in eight couples.” That’s actually quite a lot. “And the causes vary—but male infertility is a third of the cause.” So I think we saw that in a recent article we looked at where the stats are quite high, or close to equal, between men and women being behind the causes of infertility.
There’s a point here I highlighted. It talks about,
“‘Sperm count decreases in hotter environments,’ Dr. Riley says, including places like hot tubs and saunas. This is why many doctors recommend men avoid soaking in hot water, or doing anything that will heat up that general area—such as placing a laptop on their lap—when trying to conceive.”
So, we have just the basic regimen issue of body temperature, and particularly in the whole groin area. This point is very interesting to me as well—their second point in the article. “Vegans have a lower sperm count”. And actually, we talked quite a bit about this, in our book on The 8 Steps To Natural Fertility. By the way, you can get that book for free. If you don’t already, it’s available at NaturalFertilityBook.com. And you’ll see in our Chapter 3 of that book, we talked about the importance in fertility, for animal source proteins for both the male and the female. And I know people will promote things like tofu and other vegetable sources of protein, but it’s not giving you the same factors that you need for fertility. So continue on from this point. Actually, just to finish off on my last point on this, this point of vegetable protein. Here, the same doctor Riley there, quoting says, “Alternate sources of protein would be useful to offset this issue.” But as I say, not so much, as I just explained that we have in our Chapter 3 of our book.
Going down to their fourth point. They talked about, “STI’s Can Lead To Infertility”. And I say, yes this is absolutely true. But where we also make a distinction is between actual current infections and someone actually contracts an STI in the present time. But what’s even more significant, even someone who has not ever contracted an STI, when we look at the whole genetic inheritance in either of the pair, either the man or the woman, you look back in the family tree and you see signs—certain diseases that run through the family. Whether we’re talking about, well heart disease is a very big one, but then there are many other littler ones—arthritis and allergies. And we even get into the realms of some conditions of anxiety. Anyways, there’s a whole range. I’m not going to pull up that whole list. But the idea here is that these STI’s have actually transcended the lines of family genetics. Actually, from generations back we still see the after effects of STI’s and all kinds of common health conditions that people normally wouldn’t associate with them. So yes, this point is absolutely valid about taking care of any STI’s. But we even go much deeper into dealing with that in the whole family genetic structure. The technical word that we use is the “chronic miasms”. Getting a little bit of Greek into our morning. But yes, certainly that’s a good point. We just say we expand on that even further in our fertility protocol.
So in this point here, let me just collapse this window. This is another doctor, Dr. Rizk, says “95.” Sorry, maybe that’s supposed to be the other way around, “55 to 95 percent of semen is made up of a thick fluid that allows sperm to swim to their destination.” And as I comment here, we actually cover the whole nutritional protocol, which gives this healthy composition of semen and sperm. And it’s, again, it’s in our book, you can download that at www.NaturalFertilityBook.com. And we actually give you the exact diet the exact way to get this healthy sperm. It’s nice that they have statistics and so on here, but they don’t really give very practical advice about how to do that.
What else do I have here? Just scrolling back to where I am. And I think the final point that they make in this article. I’m skipping some other points because they don’t really have much substance to them. There’s pretty big in general. But in this point here, “Stress Can Make It Tough To Conceive.” Well, that’s I suppose pretty obvious. Should be to most people. And definitely, that’s what I comment on here. Not only do we just acknowledge that as a general point, and then people are left a little bit mystified as to how to manage their stress or what they’re actually should do about it. But that’s why in our fertility protocol, we include the whole range of homeopathics that deal with specific emotions and specific stressess, not just as a general concept, but on a very individualized basis for how a given individual responds to that. And the way I’ll often talk about stress in the general health context, and the general treatment context, is that on an individual basis. We use stress as this general word, but what does it mean on an individual basis and the way that somebody experiences their stress and expresses it? Some people may experience it more as physical tension, tension in the neck, or tension in the gut, or things like that. Other people, it’ll come out in specific behaviors—behaviors that are showing high levels of irritability, or frustration, or things like that. Like they’re overt behaviors, or other people may just become very kind of withdrawn with the feeling of overwhelmed, and so on. Just to say that there’s a very individual expression of stress. And that’s what we formulate—the homeopathic remedies on that individual basis. To help someone kind of be much more steady and strong in the face of whatever stresses. Of course, stress is fairly universal. It’s just a question of how we’re able to deal with it.
So that’s pretty much the end of this article. I just wanted to bring out the good points and expand on where we could go even further with some of the things that they point to. Again, if you don’t have our Fertility Book, it’s free at NaturalFertilityBook.com. Thank you for listening, and I’ll see you next time.
