Last year my cycles were running around 32 days consistently thanks toacupuncture. I started using progesterone cream (PC) in August thinking thatalone would help my luteal phase (LP). Since I wasn’t taking into considerationthat I would O later because of my longer cycle, I used the PC starting day 12or so. I did feel much better over all and slept REALLY well. I then joined theWalnut Study and had to stop using the PC. Within a month my cycles started tostretch out to 40+ days and by September or October I dropped out of the studybecause I couldn’t handle the stress of “when is it coming”. I dedicated October to studying the archives and reading whatever I could onherbs for treating...

FAQs of Juicing for Fertility

Are you ready for juicing?  Want to make eating for fertility even easier?  Juicing is a little work for a LOT of benefit. Use the contact form to write with your juicing questions.    Q:  What juicer is the best? A:  There are so many great juicers out there. I don’t believe you have to have an expensive juicer at first.  Work your way up, if you want, but I have never needed something fancy.  At this writing I use a Jack La Lane Power Juicer.  We are just going to talk about what makes  good juice, why juice and how to juice. Q: Why Juice? A:   Juicing is a natural way to supplement your diet with natural vitamins and enzymes.  Juice is able to enter your system with very little work for your digestive system because it is already broken down. Q:  Are organically grown foods better? A:   By all means.  Organically means it is pesticide and GMO free with higher growing standards. Q:  Some juicer companies make a lot of health claims about their machines, are these claims legitimate? A:   A juicer must be able to liberate the hidden values from fibers and place them into the juice under pressure without loss by aeration or static in order to obtain the full nutritional value of such juices extracted from fruits and vegetables. Juicing Tips from Cherie Calbom’s book “The Juice Lady’s Juicing for High Level Wellness and Vibrant Good Looks” 1.  Wash all produce before juicing; fruit and vegetable washes are available from many grocers and health food stores. Cut away all moldy, bruised, or damaged areas before...

Natural Health and the Prostate

Men worry about physical and mental function as they age.   But aging can be limited.    This is an excellent natural health article in general with many great tips to get you healthy and educated on the subjects of natural health and prostate health. By Dr. Andrew Meyers The idea that aging is inevitable can be a difficult concept for many men to accept. Aging, from the male perspective, is frequently associated with loss of physical and mental function and vitality. The implied stigma that comes with aging often prevents men from dealing with important health issues associated with the process. The goal of this article is to dispel the idea that aging has to be a limiting factor and to shed light onsome key health concerns for the 40-plus man. As my father, is in his mid-50s, I am personally witnessing the changes men face as we age. My father has always been vital and physically fit; however, his body is changing andwith it, his perspective. Sports-related injuries have taken their toll on his mobility,and he has had to adopt new approaches to his overall health. If we examine aging from a holistic perspective, we can see important health considerations among mind, body, and spirit. Whole health When we look at the aging process, some clear-cut research findings apply. We know from numerous studies that a whole foods diet high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and rich in nutrients is the best health-promoting approach.  Eating fresh vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidant nutrients and fiber helps reduce the risk factors for cancer. Consistent moderate exercise promotes cardiovascular...

Benefits of Pollen Extracts

Men who deal with infertility in smaller measures may benefit from the same supplement as those with prostate problems.  Prostate issues can often be tracked back to decreased fertility in males, even many years earlier.  The signs may just not have been seen.  Consider the article below and how it may relate to you. What about pollen? People sometimes confuse pollen with pollen extracts. Pollen is the substance found in plants that fertilizes other, like plants.  It consists of fine, powdery, yellowish grains or spores, sometimes in masses.  Bees collect this for the hive.  When this pollen is gathered from bees and the bee hive it is generally known as bee pollen. In a pollen extract, the pollen is gathered from plants and then is extracted in the laboratory. Bee pollen is also known as a healthful food and as a general tonic fo good health. Many athletes use it, as it is said to enhance performance. For more information on bee pollen and AIM Mountain Meadow Bee Pollen™. Pollen and pollen extracts have long been used to maintain good health.  Perhaps the better-known pollen product is bee pollen, which has been used as a tonic for centuries.   Another pollen product, pollen extract, is beginning to become known for helping to maintain urogenital health. Literature on pollen extract focuses on three physiological effects:  Smooth muscle contraction, anti-inflammatory action, and effects on enzymes. Smooth muscle contraction is important in prostate problems because muscle contraction plays a role in allowing the bladder to void. When the muscles at the neck of the bladder are tense, urinary problems may result. Spasms...

Bee pollen is a substance that bees collect from flowers to use as food. When a bee climbs into a flower to gather nectar, it brushes the flower stamen, which holds pollen. The pollen is collected in tiny baskets at the back of the bee’s legs. It is taken back to the hive, and enzymes and nectar are added to it to create bee pollen. This pollen is then used to feed the young. Bee pollen is often referred to as “the bread of bees.” What nutrients are found in bee pollen?

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...
