Horny Goat Weed and Infertility; Sex is fun again.

What a name for an article, right? Well, the truth is that many of the things one benefits from for fertility are actually just aphrodisiacs.  When things are right in the bedroom, things are very often right for the nursery.  As alternative therapies go, Fertile Male is something worth looking into. I was approached by someone about a new product that contains these herbs and whole foods.  How much easier could it be to take a couple of capsules at the kitchen counter and end up in the bedroom?  Most of the supplements for men we carry are specific but this is an overall tonic. Fertile Male is for it all; improve sperm count production, male libido and enhanced fertility, semen production, improves testosterone, maintains or even improves B6 and more benefits. Fertile Lady has the same ingredients with a feminine name because it restores libido and healthy sexual function in women as well. Especially for fertility in older pre or perimenopausal women.  Horny Goat Weed is also available as a single herb.  (New label coming.)  Click on any of the bottles to take you to our store. I thought I would never be posting about this subject because there are so many junk products out there, put out there by creeps.  I know how many emails we all get about Viagra in our in boxes.  But here I am saying that this is a powerful combination of herbs and whole food and it may be worth a try.  Think about it.  When sexuality is waning it does NOT feel like the time to be making love.  It feels...

Herbs to increase iron levels

As with anything we do at Infertility Workshop we want to make sure that the herbs we introduce you to would be healthy for TTC.  So even though we don’t have all the answers, we do want to help you with your health questions about herbs as much as possible. Herbs for increasing iron levels are as follows: The best tea for enhancing iron absorption is anise.  Mint, caraway, cumin and licorice teas are also effective but anise is the best. Gentian (available in tincture form) is used in the treatment of anemia because it stimulates the secretion of digestive juices, thereby enhancing iron absorption. Yellow dock (available in tincture form)is used to raise hemoglobin levels in the blood and is also a good source of iron. Dandelion is another helpful herb and can be taken in tincture form, but if possible, juicing is best. You can purchase it in any good produce section or healthfood store or even a farm stand.  Just juice it for the best results because you will get the entire leaf and stalk for vitamins AND minerals.
