Inflammatory Infertility Diet

How to Improve Your Chances of Fertility Naturally

Did you know that chronic inflammation affects all the components necessary for reproduction? That is why an anti-inflammatory diet is the best diet to improve female and male fertility, but there’s something really important I would like you to know.

Not all anti-inflammatory diets are the same, and so, for some, depending on what you are following, it may not work! The inconsistency of the information online on what you can and can’t eat in anti-inflammatory diets is really confusing. Some only focus on individual nutrients or single food groups, and some carry many health risks.

I have noticed that there are recommendations to eat foods, take supplements, and follow weight loss regimes for fertility that will ultimately cause inflammation, for instance.

This post is about how the right anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle will work if fertility is your health goal. Even if you have a condition that is linked with infertility, chances are, you may be able to put that into remission on this anti-inflammatory diet, too.

Best Diet for Infertility

Infertility affects around 186 million individuals worldwide! 50% are attributed to female factor infertility, and 20-30% are male-related. 20-30% is due to both male and female factors.

Fertility treatment is not an option for many people for many reasons, but the wonderful news is that there are hundreds of studies that show how you can have more control over your fertility. The efficacy of a diet and lifestyle intervention for fertility is real!

It is no surprise that what you eat over a certain amount of time will have a major effect on your body and fertility, in a good or bad way.

How you live and think and what you don’t do has a significant effect on your body and fertility, too.

Now, it isn’t just about high fats, ultra-processed foods, and lack of exercise. There are foods for improving your chances of having a baby, but you can’t just eat those foods alongside inflammatory foods, for instance. I note a lot of suggestions online on what to eat to get pregnant faster, including inflammatory-inducing foods, which won’t help fertility. Even low-calorie and low-fat foods are highly inflammatory. This is why I always advise taking a qualified nutritionist’s advice for fertility, chronic inflammatory conditions, and so on.

Also, you don’t have to be overweight and have issues with conceiving. Have you read Signs of Inflammation That May Surprise You?

A gut-healthy, anti-inflammatory diet rich in every nutrient needed for fertility will help you. A good ratio of nutrients from a multitude of foods for fertility eaten daily, along with anti-inflammatory lifestyle changes, will help. Remember, it isn’t just one thing alone that you have to do to get pregnant and have a baby.

For example, omega-3 is good for fertility, but you can’t just take an omega-3 supplement and carry on living an inflammatory lifestyle.

Plus, if you are on a strict diet, have malabsorption issues, or are anemic, please check this article: Help With Anemia, B12, and Iron Deficiencies & Comfort & Joy for Ulcerative Colitis.

How Does Chronic Inflammation Affect Fertility?

That is because chronic inflammation affects all the components necessary for reproduction, like the uterus, cervix, placenta, and testes, for instance.

Plus, there is a certain amount of immune response needed for fertility, and it plays an integral role. When you consider that chronic inflammation is also a dysregulated immune system, you can see why people are having babies using this method.

Check these posts: Overcome Anxiety and Infertility & Getting Pregnant With Endometriosis.

Why Can’t I Get Pregnant?

Low-grade prolonged inflammation (chronic inflammation) circulating in the body causes infertility through conditions like:

• PCOS – low-grade inflammation is prevalent in this condition

• Endometriosis – inflammation in endometriosis impairs the process whereby the endometrium changes in preparation for pregnancy, reduces progesterone and causes disruption in the endometrium.

• Obesity

• Diabetes

• Metabolic dysfunctions

• Other autoimmune disorders

• Premature ovarian failure (POF)

• Irregular menstrual cycles – which could be anovulation

• Anovulation, which is ovulation disruption

• Ovary inflammation

• Hormone dysregulation

• Implantation failure

• Recurrent miscarriages

• Sperm count and quality issues

• Epigenetics – some couples face fertility through underlying genetic issues.

How to Have a Baby Naturally

Studies show that lowering chronic inflammation results in better outcomes of all of the above.

In fact, I have heard many doctors lately term fertility issues as ‘inflammatory infertility.

Remember to be cautious about following a diet that claims to be anti-inflammatory. You could become more inflamed by following it. You also may have a condition that requires more attention to put it into remission or need mental well-being support and exercise that reduces inflammation.

That is why EBS also has a personalized advice section for a plethora of conditions, which complements the method to lower inflammation and increase fertility chances in the Premium Membership.

Getting Pregnant With Endometriosis

You Can Have a Baby With Endometriosis

Hello Everyone. If you have endometriosis, there is no doubt that the impact on your life is profound.

Endometriosis pain can be different for every woman. It can feel like your insides are being torn apart or electrified at some parts of the month, or you may have dull, nagging aches in the back and pelvic area regularly. Accompanying symptoms can interfere significantly with your daily life.

This post is to reassure you that there is natural help if you have endometriosis and are worried about infertility. Please share with anyone that suffers from this debilitating condition. It may give them great hope.

Endometriosis and Fertility

How Can You Have a Healthy Baby?

Endometriosis and Fertility

Life with endometriosis can be extremely limiting and can often send sufferers to bed for days on end, where they spend the time curled up in a ball, with intense pain, feeling unable to move.

Your tummy can swell, causing what is commonly known as an ‘endo belly’. The pain can be excruciating when you go to the bathroom, extending to other parts of your body, like your back and legs.

Heavy periods can accompany endometriosis, meaning you can never be far from a bathroom. Endometriosis can lead to hormonal acne, painful cysts, psoriasis, and arthritis.

Endometriosis can be exhausting and can leave little room for life’s pleasures.

Intimate relationships, work, school, social life, and mental well-being can all be affected, and for many, there’s the added worry about infertility.

Infertility With Endometriosis

As I mentioned, endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory condition that can present itself with severe pelvic pain throughout the month, along with many debilitating symptoms.

It can cause dyspareunia (painful intercourse) and severe constipation and is linked to infertility. This chronic inflammation condition often goes undiagnosed mainly.

The World Health Organisation reports 190 million women of reproductive age globally receive an endometriosis diagnosis. It describes endometriosis as the tissue that lines the uterus, which then grows outside the uterus.

An immunosuppressive state caused by chronic inflammation (dysregulation of the immune system) can be the perfect environment for this to occur.

The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG) states that 6 out of 10 endometriosis cases are not picked up in the US.

AJOG classifies endometriosis as a wide-ranging and pervasive sequela (a condition that is a consequence of previous injury) described as ‘nothing short of a public health emergency ‘requiring immediate action.’ 

AJOG also states that from a clinical perspective, endometriosis may be better defined as a menstrual cycle-dependent, chronic, inflammatory, systemic disease that commonly presents itself as pelvic pain.

Oftentimes, other health challenges present themselves with endometriosis. Like iron deficiency and the symptoms of what that entails, like extreme fatigue, difficulty walking, or the need for infusions.

Can Endometriosis Cause Depression?

Depression often accompanies this chronic inflammation condition, which is understandable. Endometriosis can take over your life. If social life is diminished, work life is a challenge, and you are confined to bed regularly, this can all contribute to low mental well-being.

Depression also occurs due to a physiological process due to the nature of the chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation increases neuroinflammation (brain and spinal cord inflammation), which affects mental well-being.

Anxiety and depression are heightened when inflammation is present.

Can You Get Pregnant With Endometriosis?

Yes, you can get pregnant with endometriosis. Many women with endometriosis have gone on to have healthy babies by reducing inflammation.

Inflammation can disrupt the function of the endometrium, causing impairment in critical cell processes that prepare the endometrium for pregnancy, and it can reduce progesterone levels, for instance.

Discuss this anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle to treat endometriosis with your doctor.

We start with a focus on the microbiome and the liver on the 6-week Reset. Read the testimonials about the benefits of this health-changing protocol before going forward to next-level health.

Certain bacteria in the microbiome are associated with endometriosis, which is balanced through the Eat Burn Sleep lifestyle. Treating gut dysbiosis improves immune response and reduces chronic inflammation.

This is why members who have endometriosis and other inflammatory conditions, with fertility concerns, have been able to conceive and have a baby on this lifestyle.

Chronic inflammation is linked to infertility and miscarriages.

When you reduce inflammation around the uterus, the chances of having a healthy implantation and a positive outcome for pregnancy are much higher.

How Can You Have a Healthy Baby?

Lowering chronic inflammation in the whole body will assist with treating dyspareunia, increasing the chances of getting pregnant, and carrying you through to delivering a healthy baby.

There are reasons why our members who have endometriosis feel like they can live a normal life again. Treated from all angles, with the right foods, exercise, and stress management, inflammation is reduced at systemic levels immensely.

When you have endometriosis, it can seem like there are not many days to look forward to that don’t have the ramifications of what the chronic inflammatory condition entails.

The excellent news is that on Eat Burn Sleep, pain, bloating, and inflammation reduce as the days go by. Days can be looked forward to as these subside, and life can be enjoyed again.

If you have the Eat Burn Sleep Premium Membership, you can personalize the program, depending on your health goals.

We have so many ways that you can incorporate tailored health advice for endometriosis. There’s the fertility (with or without IVF) section for men and women, plus endometriosis, hormonal balance, and depression section.

You may have other health concerns accompanying your endometriosis that you need help with, like bloating, migraines, acne, psoriasis, and hair loss. There’s a pregnancy and postpartum section for when your fertility dream has been realized!

Whether fertility is a goal for now or the future, don’t despair, and certainly don’t delay reducing your chronic inflammation systemically. Everyone’s health improves dramatically when you follow the Eat Burn Sleep method.

I am sending good wishes for a healthy, happy day!

Increase Sperm Count Naturally

Men’s Reproductive Health

Hello everyone! I wanted to address an essential component of men’s overall health and mental well-being for this post. It is reproductive health!

It is estimated that 50% of infertility cases are down to male factor infertility, and studies suggest a significant decline in male reproductive health worldwide over the last 50 years. Scientists believe that much of the reason comes from a lack of nutrition and an unhealthy lifestyle.

Lifestyle intervention is usually recommended for an array of conditions, and such is the same to boost fertility.

For this post, I will talk about sperm count and how to improve its quality and quantity – naturally, within your control. So, this post is for you if you hope to increase your sperm count now or are looking ahead to the future. Spread the word!

What Is a Low Sperm Count?

What Can Cause Low Sperm Count?

Natural Ways to Increase Sperm Count:

Reducing Inflammation Helps Fertility

Foods That Affect Sperm Count

Stress and Low Sperm Count

Exercise and Sperm Count

Sleep Affects Sperm Count

How Weight Affects Sperm

Smoking Kills Sperm Count

Are Supplements Good For Sperm Count?

What Helps Increase Sperm Count?

What Is a Low Sperm Count?

Sperm count is the average number of sperm in one sample of semen. A healthy sperm count is considered to be 15 million per milliliter, which mounts to around 39 million per ejaculate.

A low sperm count is anything less than 15 million to relate to fertility issues, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be. It may just take a little longer! There are men with low sperm counts who go on to have no fertility issues.

However, the arduous journey the sperm has to travel to get to the egg via the women’s cervix, uterus, and fallopian tubes requires sperm to bear the correct size, shape, and motility. Not all of them make it there! The more that you have, the better the chances.

What Can Cause Low Sperm Count?

There are several reasons why a low sperm count occurs, and your fertility specialist will aid you with the right medical advice. They have your medical history and will look for signs that may possibly cause low sperm count.

What is interesting to know is that chronic inflammation is linked to fertility issues for both men and women.

Chronic inflammation and low sperm concentration can be seen in the conditions of Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, hormonal imbalances, and depression. Still, as I have spoken about before, it can be hidden.

Your medication could be causing a low sperm count if you take anti-depressants, anabolic steroids, or anti-androgens, for instance.

Oxidative stress, mental and physical stress, smoking, being overweight, poor nutrition, high-fat diets, drugs, lack of sleep, exposure to toxins, and other environmental conditions…the list goes on.

It could be genetic. It could be physiological.

What is also interesting to know is that your gut health could be causing a low sperm count. Dysbiosis (unbalanced gut) is the leading cause of many non-communicable diseases, including chronic inflammation.

Gut health is affected by your lifestyle and all of the above. Dysbiosis can occur in a less-than-optimum healthy state, of course.

There’s growing knowledge that gut dysbiosis is also linked to male infertility.

So addressing the dysbiosis and inflammation through our gut makes sense then that good gut microbiota and nutrition come into enhancing, as well as preventing, male fertility.

Treating microbiota with the correct nutrition, reducing harmful microbes, and increasing beneficial microbes in the gut are gaining increasing attention as sperm count treatment. Much of it is because of its lack of side effects.

Members of Eat Burn Sleep will vouch for the positive side effects of eating microbiota-balancing foods. Digesting essential nutrition to promote beneficial bacteria will create a balanced environment of good microorganisms that host an array of incredible side effects, as listed below (and throughout this platform).

Natural Ways to Increase Sperm Count:

Reducing Inflammation Helps Fertility

As mentioned above, chronic inflammation causes gut dysbiosis, which is linked to male infertility.

Lowering inflammation will boost fertility and promote good sperm quality, quantity, and motility.

Chronic inflammation also increases oxidative stress, and by lowering inflammation with an anti-inflammatory lifestyle, oxidative stress will be reduced, further protecting reproductive health.

Foods That Affect Sperm Count

The foods that you should eat to promote good sperm concentration should naturally, as discussed above, be microbiota-balancing.

An environment in the gut of good microorganisms should be the focus and eliminate unhealthy bacteria while promoting healthy gut bacteria.

There’s solid evidence of nutritional interventions’ role in male fertility preservation and improvement.

Zinc, for instance, and other essential synergistic nutrients to combat oxidative stress and allow for sufficient activation and absorption is needed for men’s health and normal sperm function.

Be careful, though, because many substances in a range of ‘whole’ and ‘healthy’ foods inhibit zinc, iron, and other minerals.

A lot causes chronic inflammation, which is why there is a lot of confusion surrounding nutrition and why nutritionists and dieticians are the best people to help you when it comes to determining what is good for increasing your sperm count and fertility chances.

You have to avoid certain foods that you may think are nutritious because they won’t be beneficial for fertility in particular.

Eliminating intakes of harmful components is imperative.

What I have noticed is that there are some ‘fertility diets’ on the internet that advocate for foods that are typically known as healthy but cause digestive issues and inflammation.

Unhealthy fat intake is associated with lower total sperm count, and healthy fat is associated with higher sperm count.

Avoid extreme diets that are unbalanced and are not only depleted of essential health nutrients but can also be potential risk factors for men’s health.

Many trendy diets can lack specific amino acids, for instance, or include inhibitors of zinc absorption. There’s a delicate balance.

Also, what is considered is that if there is chronic inflammation in the body, then this causes further implications.

Many extreme diets cause chronic inflammation and put it into a vicious cycle that can cause hormonal imbalances, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. They open the body up to being susceptible to more diseases affecting fertility.

A good balance of the right compounds is needed for optimum health, and particular sperm-friendly nutrients are taken in combination that significantly improve sperm concentration, motility, and testosterone levels.

Optimum health through gut health is needed to reduce oxidative stress, increase sperm count, and improve fertility in general.

When optimum health is achieved, mental well-being also improves. This isn’t just because you are feeling fitter. The brain-gut connection is explained here: Why You Really Need to Know This if You Have Depression.

This also explains why there’s a link between depression and infertility.

Have you read the article: Help With Male Infertility

Improve Fertility For a Healthy Baby, Inflammatory Infertility Diet, Getting Pregnant With Endometriosis, Overcome Anxiety & Infertility & Help With Male Infertility.

Stress and Low Sperm Count

High levels of psychological stress, anxiety, and depression lower testosterone levels, reduce sex drive and erectile function and impair sperm concentration, motility, and sperm size and shape.

An increase in cortisol resulting from stress is one of the major causes of low sperm counts, and lowering it is crucial.

It’s a vicious cycle since depression, stress, and anxiety can go hand in hand when faced with infertility when you want to conceive.

These can all affect libido and erectile dysfunction, too, posing more challenges.

If you are taking anti-depressants, this further inhibits your goal of fertility.

The common side effects of anti-depressants are chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, and some of them (SSRIs) are associated with harmed sperm quality and DNA damage.

Have you read: Come Off Antidepressants,

Side Effects of Antibiotics & IBD, Painkillers Not Helping Your Headache & How To Reduce Chronic Inflammation?

Mental stress can manifest in the body and cause infertility, digestive issues, headaches, insomnia, and chronic inflammation. Stress left untreated can lead to chronic conditions. 

Stress could come in many forms as a result of experiencing many things you cannot control, but there’s good news in that it also comes in forms as a result of what you can control (food, sleep, exercise, lifestyle choices).

In many cases, calming stress and lowering cortisol by focusing on what you can control will give you better tools to deal with many things outside your control.

The great news is that you will produce more ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters by reducing stress with nutrient-rich foods, neuroplasticity exercises, ‘unstressful’ movement, good sleep, meditation, and stress reduction guidance.

‘Feel good’ neurotransmitters like serotonin, produced in a healthy gut, will decrease depression.

Read more about neurotransmitters here.

Exercise and Sperm Count

Getting the proper exercise is vital for your sperm count.

Regular exercise relaxes your mind and body and promotes sperm count and motility. Plus it will also aid in reducing stress by lowering cortisol and adrenaline.

You may enjoy intense workouts, but intense isn’t what you need right now. Endorphins are still experienced with the right exercise, with the bonus of improved body composition without raising inflammation.

If you are not used to exercising regularly, then the short exercises on Eat Burn Sleep, easily squeezed into your day at home, will be encouraging. Before you know it, you regularly exercise and feel amazing, boosting your sperm count. 

Don’t forget that walking is always a great way to exercise. Members, check the walking guide.

Sleep Affects Sperm Count

Ensure that you get regular good quality sleep.

Studies show that late nights and sleep deprivation affect sperm count, survival, and motility. Also, too much sleep is associated with poor semen quality!

Getting the right amount of good, quality sleep is essential for healthy sperm.

If you are in sleep deprivation, have long-standing habits of short periods of sleep, or are programmed through your work to sleep lightly, you will benefit from sleep promotion through Eat Burn Sleep. Plus, there is Personalized Advice to change the most stubborn insomniac sleeping routine in the Insomnia section. 

It works even on insomniacs and long-standing shift workers!

How Weight Affects Sperm

Obesity is associated with an altered reproductive hormonal profile and impaired semen quality and function.

Some studies (Palmer et al.) suggest that male obesity also impairs offspring’s metabolic and reproductive health, suggesting that paternal health is passed on to the next generation via the sperm. However, this can be altered with epigenetic modifiers, i.e.. Lifestyle intervention.

Weight loss happens as a side effect if you reduce inflammation with EBS lifestyle intervention, which will, needless to say, improve your overall health and sperm concentration and count.

Read: How Can You Lose a Lot of Weight Fast?

Smoking Kills Sperm Count

There are many studies that state that smoking has a detrimental effect on sperm health. Tobacco and nicotine both will reduce sperm count.

Smoking not only adds to oxidative stress but also causes zinc deficiency, which is essential for men’s health.

It’s incredible what embarking on a lifestyle intervention can do when it comes down to breaking habits, even hard habits like quitting an addiction.

Reprogramming your mind with a lifestyle intervention is about replacing unhelpful habits with better ones for optimum health.

Nutrition is potent for your brain, motivation, neurotransmitter production, and willpower.

It will keep your body from getting inflamed and keep it satiated.

Hard cravings are eliminated, which could be down to the neurotransmitters produced in a body with optimum health through a healthy gut.

The neurotransmitters, reduction in inflammation, good sleep, and neuroplasticity exercises like the meditations we have on EBS can increase control networks within our bodies that regulate emotions and improve brain activity, for instance.

Many members have said they don’t get cravings for addictions anymore.

Certainly, neurotransmitters like serotonin are produced naturally in our lifestyle. Serotonin is increased with nicotine. The lack of this neurotransmitter causes craving, mood, and appetite disturbances when people stop smoking.

When you have a nourished body and mind, triggers that activate mechanisms in your brain to reach out and seek an addiction, whatever it was, are closed down.

A nourished body, through a healthy gut, produces much serotonin and other neurotransmitters.

It’s that powerful!

Maybe also the commitment to better health and the production of other neurotransmitters that make you feel amazing naturally aids in the process.

Eat Burn Sleep could help you with your quest to stop smoking to enhance your fertility.

Pollutants and toxins are to be avoided as much as possible to increase sperm count.

Are Supplements Good For Sperm Count?

Certain supplements are good for sperm concentration and motility. Get advice on the right supplements to take alongside a nutritious eating plan. Supplements do not compare with foods’ bioavailability, but the right ones could enhance your chances of increasing your sperm count.

Members can access this information in the specialized advice section for Fertility for Men and Women.

You may be interested in reading: Ways to Improve Fertility & Have a Healthy Baby.

What Helps Increase Sperm Count?

Always obtain medical advice, diagnosis, and treatment from your healthcare professional.

Medical professionals worldwide recommend this nutrient-rich, anti-inflammatory as a lifestyle intervention. You may want to run it by them. We have been BUPA-global approved!

There’s more to it, though. Your health relies on other vital factors.

Remember to ensure that you get a good balance of work and play. This is so important for optimum men’s health.

Spend time with people that make you feel good. Go for a walk with a good friend. Take a massage. Listen to music, and have a little dance! Promote an increase of dopamine – that feeling of pleasure washing over you while your brain feels perked up.

Increasing this hormone that you are in control of, along with promoting further ‘feel good’ neurotransmitters by eating gut-healthy foods and reducing inflammation, will all aid in achieving your fertility goals.

Ensuring that you are being kind to yourself; mind and body – will bring remarkable results.

It will raise your spirits, mood, and, hopefully, your sperm count!

I wish you a healthy, pleasurable day.

Improve Fertility for a Healthy Baby

Looking to Improve Your Chances of Having a Baby?

Hello everyone!

Whether you are looking to give your body the best chance to conceive naturally or are on IVF and want a greater chance of success, we are glad you are here because we can help you.

It could be that you have had recurrent miscarriages – or want to prepare your body for having a baby in the future – but if it’s your mission to have a baby, this post is for you.

Keep reading because you are about to find out how to improve your chances of having a baby – and this applies to women and men.

Improving the Immune For Fertility, Pregnancy + Having a Baby

Improve Liver Health For Fertility

Natural Ways of Improving Chances of Having a Baby

The Impact of Infertility

Astonishingly, there are 1 in every 6 couples in the UK and the US right now who have difficulties conceiving. That equates to 3.5 million! Worldwide – between 48 million couples and 186 million individuals have infertility!

The cost of fertility treatments, which include artificial insemination, intrauterine insemination, and in vitro fertilization, is expensive.

If you are experiencing infertility, there is no doubt that it impacts your life. The emotional stress of trying to have a baby and being disappointed regularly, with an enormous cost financially and to physical health, can take over your life.

Diet and Lifestyle Helps People Have a Baby

Eat Burn Sleep is a 360-degree anti-inflammatory lifestyle. We assist people with lower inflammation successfully at a systemic level and improve gut, mental, liver, and immune health (which amounts to optimum health).

Lowering inflammation helps you have a baby because many reasons you cannot conceive, carry and have a baby are linked to chronic inflammation (excessive).

Chronic Inflammation and The Reproductive System

The female reproductive system is geared to resolve inflammation since an average amount of inflammation is required to function at full capacity.

The menstrual cycle, for instance, deals with clearing tissue debris and regeneration as a regular function. An acute amount of inflammation is needed for cell repair during ovulation, menstruation, implantation, and giving birth.

However, it is important to keep inflammation low because chronic inflammation will cause problems with ovulation, low sperm count, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, implantation, hormone imbalance, early pregnancy health, and even after the baby is born.

Chronic inflammation is linked to infertility, miscarriages, endometriosis, PCOS, and autoimmune disorders that impact being able to have a baby.

Preparing Your Body For Having a Baby

Lowering your inflammation is key to preparing your body for having a baby. Whether that is naturally, through IVF, to lessen the risk of miscarriage or boost sperm count, you must look at your whole lifestyle.

Eat Burn Sleep is successful at helping people have healthy babies, and I will briefly explain.

You see, inflammation is lowered, and the gut, immune, liver, and mental health are also optimized. These are all major in improving fertility, IVF success, pregnancy, and giving birth.

Chronic inflammation conditions that affect your chances of having a baby are all treated on this lifestyle successfully.

For instance, check out the testimonies for weight loss, endometriosis, and PCOS. Many men are boosting their testosterone and sperm count by following this lifestyle. It really works!

Improving the Immune For Fertility, Pregnancy + Having a Baby

The immune system plays an integral role in the reproduction of both males and females. There is a close functional relationship between the immune system and the reproductive tracts.

For instance, a healthy immune will heal the ovary after the egg erupts and then help repair the uterine lining during menstruation.

A healthy immune system is required for internal protection from infections and for tolerating sperm.

A healthy immune is required to trigger blood vessels necessary for growing the placenta to facilitate the healthy development of a baby, for instance.

Conditions like obesity, diabetes, and metabolic dysfunctions impact male fertility, endometriosis, and PCOS, for instance, for women, since they are characterized by chronic inflammation and immune alterations.

Women with autoimmune disorders can fail to recognize a pregnancy or develop antibodies attacking sperm (and even embryos), seeing them as foreign invaders.

Many autoimmune diseases are treated and put into remission with this anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

As many of you know, due to this lifestyle, I have put my two autoimmune diseases into remission and do not take any medication anymore.

Improve Gut Health For Fertility

Your gut microbiota is linked to infertility since poor gut health can cause hormonal imbalance.

Many studies improving gut dysbiosis lead to more pregnancy successes.

Since 70% of your immune cells reside in the gut, it makes sense that your gut needs to be in optimum health to protect your immune system and reduce inflammation.

Eat Burn Sleep recipes are packed with the ultimate nutrition to improve health, fertility, IVF success, and having a baby. The lifestyle helps you digest, absorb, and hold on to that nutrition.

(Improving gut health helps your baby’s health when it arrives since it inherits its Mother’s microbiome! It also lessens the chance of postpartum depression).

Improve Liver Health For Fertility

Your liver is linked to infertility since a tired and congested one can produce a multitude of symptoms that are often caused by hormone imbalances.

Medication, unhealthy foods, exposure to toxins, and an inflammatory lifestyle contribute to a congested liver. Eat Burn Sleep’s reset will detox, recharge, and renew your liver efficiently.

Your liver needs detoxification if you are having IVF treatment. You will no doubt be feeling rather sick if you are taking IVF.

This powerful anti-inflammatory lifestyle kickstarts you on your road to improving chances of IVF and fertility, lessening the risk of miscarriage, and helping you give birth.

Natural Ways of Improving Chances of Having a Baby

Stress is linked to infertility, miscarriage, and giving birth since chronic inflammation is also linked to mindset.

E.g., Excess cortisol levels can inhibit the body’s main sex hormones and suppress ovulation, sperm count, and sexual activity.

Sleep is linked, too. During sleep, HGH is produced, which is essential for optimum health. (There’s Insomnia advice as well as Fertility advice in the Personalized Advice section).

Lower levels of HGD are linked to obesity and diabetes, which can affect your fertility and having a healthy pregnancy. Chronic sleep deprivation is recognized as being one of the major contributors to diseases like type 2 diabetes, too.

Lowering stress and improving restorative sleep are significant parts of Eat Burn Sleep through mind reprogramming, guided meditations, movement, mindfulness, and other neuroplasticity exercises.

Because improving gut health leads to improved mental health, it is a biological reaction – not just through seeing and feeling the positive results of being on this lifestyle.

If you are looking for a fertility diet to improve pregnancy health and a diet to have a healthy baby, you have found it!

The whole body is optimized to improve fertility, support the success of IVF, lessen the risk of miscarriage, and help give birth on this anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
