Eating really well before you try to conceive is probably one of the best things you can do for your fertility. Here are my top 5 foods that I love including as part of my fertility diet:
We might think that periods aren’t that important unless we’re trying for a baby, but actually our monthly bleed is a key insight into our ENTIRE inner health!
Not only does our bleeding (or lack of it) tell us a lot, but the duration of our whole cycle and the consistency of ovulation is really important to be aware of.
Every month our body shows us exactly what’s up with our health, but rarely do we give it any attention. What if we actually used it as a secret map to show us what’s happening on the inside?
Fast forward a couple of decades and I’m noticing more and more that women are completely burnt out from trying to do and have it all. Whether it’s exhaustion, anxiety, intense period cramps, absent periods or fertility issues, something has taken its toll on women’s health. Could it be possible that this fierce striving for everything has left us incredibly depleted?
The idea of not wanting sex can be totally trivialised, but really if libido is at an all- time- low, chances are something in the body needs a bit of TLC!
As women, our desire for sex will definitely fluctuate with our cycle and, thanks to evolution, we should actually want it more around the time when we’re ovulating (shocker!) BUT if our sex drive is flatlining all the time and we’re just having sex because we feel we SHOULD have it, then we need to sort things out pronto.
With Christmas (and Chanukah!) right around the corner, I see the guilt plastered across everyone’s faces… . It’s a time of fun and fairy lights, yet women across the globe are already stressing about their winter weight and eating too many triangles from the Quality Street tin! UGH!!!
