Signposts Of Wellness When Trying To Conceive

Feb 29, 2008
When you are trying to conceive and create a healthy environment for your baby to grow, you must be well. But how well is well? Should you expect to have one or two colds a year and possibly one dose of the flu? Should you feel tired, irritable, depressed and have loss of concentration? Or are these things signs that your body is functioning below par?

Recent research shows that 'self-perception of health status' is a good indicator of whether a woman is likely to have fertility problems. In other words, if you don't feel on top of the world then you just might not be well enough to conceive and have a normal baby.

If you aren't well, then no number of drugs and IVF treatments will help you when you are trying to conceive. In fact the drugs and treatments might make you worse and sadly you will then be labeled as having 'unexplained infertility'. You will be even more depressed than you were when you started out because you will have gone through so much and still have empty arms.

How should you go about working out how well you are? One way is to take a long hard look in the mirror. Does your skin glow or are you pasty or spotty? Do you feel or look bloated? Do your eyes look clear and bright? What is the color of your lips and inside your eyelids? Is your tongue pink or white and furry? Do you feel relaxed? Does your head ache? These sorts of questions will help you think about your wellness but you might need some help.

In my on-line 'clinic' I have a questionnaire that both asks questions and gives advice in response to the answers given. I have recently analyzed the results and found that over 90% of the women who responded had negative health symptoms. All these women were either infertile or had suffered one or more miscarriages. My analysis also showed the causes of the symptoms - that is women who drank insufficient water had one group of symptoms whilst those who ate insufficient vegetables had another group of symptoms. This proved not only that the symptoms were real but that they reflected the inadequacies of lifestyle.

The relationship between symptoms and lifestyle means that you can use your symptoms to monitor your progress. Your symptoms will disappear as you become well and fertile.

I have personally developed a number of different products to help you understand how to be really well when you are trying to conceive. If you adopt a healthy lifestyle then you will also reduce your risks of having a miscarriage. Your baby will also be less likely to have any problems during pregnancy or after birth.

If you are over 35 or even more importantly if you are over 40, you must optimize every aspect of your lifestyle to help overcome the effects of aging. The good news is that feeling well is a recipe for happiness which will spill over into your relationships and all aspects of your life.
