The human body is an amazingly complex thing. Biologically, we’re designed to run efficiently by ingesting nutritious foods that give us the energy to exert ourselves physically, but also to fuel the neurons that fire within our brains.
Our brains are hundreds of times more complex than the most advanced computers on the planet. A brain is capable of keeping your body running on unconscious actions, such as breathing, or keeping your heart pumping, but it’s also capable of releasing various hormones that help us to cope with everything we face during the day.
Your own body will release certain hormones to let you know its tired, different hormones when it’s time to wake up, more hormones when you’re feeling happy and different ones again when you’re stressed or upset.
That’s not even counting the myriad of hormones, enzymes and other goodies your brain releases to tell your body it’s the optimum time to release an egg from one of your ovaries at the right time for your body to conceive.
So what happens when those hormones aren’t released at the right time or in the right amounts?
In most cases, people tend to visit their doctor and come home with a prescription for drugs to help regulate those hormones. What they don’t know is those chemical cocktails can sometimes cause other issues with the smooth functioning of your body, even while they might be addressing the initial problem you sought to fix.
Think for a moment about how your body might be a little like a car. If you put the wrong type of gasoline into your car’s tank, it’s not likely to run very well. If you put cooking oil instead of motor oil into the engine, it’s very likely to break down completely.
Now think about what you put into your own tank each and every day to keep your motor running.
You might think you’re eating enough food to sustain you on a daily basis, but really think about what nutritional value you’re adding into those meals.
Once again, to use the car analogy, if you were to fill your car’s gas tank with water, it would be full – but it won’t be full of what it needs to run properly.
The same is true with your body.
In order to really function properly and really respond to any kind of infertility treatments, you need to overhaul your current nutritional plan. Look at some ways you can cut out the processed foods and replace it with healthier options. Are there any ways you could increase the nutrients you consume by replacing a few simple things?
Of course, it’s also worth looking at what else you’re putting into your body’s tank. Things like caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and drugs can also reduce your chances of conceiving naturally, as they affect the normal functions of your body.
