I recently had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Walter Willett, a researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health, and author of “The Fertility Diet.” His groundbreaking research provides strategies for overcoming ovulatory infertility through dietary changes. These strategies have helped countless women achieve pregnancy.
Infertility is complicated – emotionally and physically. I know. I struggled with unexplained infertility and went through years of tests and treatments. I am also a writer and editor whose expertise is in fertility and women’s health. There are many causes of infertility and certainly not all can be overcome by changes in diet and nutrition. But the majority of women who struggle with infertility related to ovulation and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) can certainly benefit from dietary changes, changes in activity and exercise level and other lifestyle modifications.
Changes in diet include:
- Eliminate low-fat dairy products, and include a serving of full-fat dairy daily
- Eat more vegetable protein and less animal protein
- Get more iron from plant based sources, not red meat
- Clean up your beverage consumption
- Eliminate trans fats
Nutrition is the foundation for good health. In my practice we start off with a solid preconception health and holistic nutrition foundation for both partners and work together to help you attain your goals.
Dr. Willett was one of my lecturers at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’m so honored to have learned from the best. I’d be honored, too, to work with you, to help you strengthen your body and mind for pregnancy.
