So, you decided to start a family… And it is this time now when you take stock of your lifestyle habits, and look into what can be improved on to maximise your chances of healthy pregnancy. Your emotional and physical health may be good and little adjustments need to be made. But if you are in a category most of my patients are, you will need some looking over your lifestyle and especially diet now that you are on your fertility journey.
A diet based on Food Energetics gives excellent results in promoting fertility and achieving healthy pregnancies. It offers a qualitative, holistic concept of individually prescribed dietary plan focusing on the thermal nature and flavour of foods and their energetic properties. It works because it is rooted in basic principles of natural laws, and is the most common sense diet I know, easy to follow and including most foods you eat anyway. Here is the list of some foods and their energetic properties:
Depending on your constitution, previous medical history and your symptoms, your dietary plan is devised: foods to eat and foods to avoid, how to prepare it and how to combine different flavours. If you have any pre existing health conditions to resolve, such as endometriosis or PCOS that are preventing you falling pregnant, your diet plan will be specifically prescribed to eliminate aggravating foods and drinks as well as introducing foods to boost your fertility.
Basic recommendations to initiate your fertility boost:
-Use high quality, unprocessed foods, organic if you can.
-Never eat if you are stressed, angry or upset-this is a major.
-Do not rush meals and chew your food well.
-Drink minimal amounts of liquids during the meal-large amounts dilute the process of digestion-another major.
-Eat seasonally appropriate foods.
-If you are on a vegetarian diet, make sure you add energetically warming foods that will be prescribed to you by your practitioner.
