Please notice that she cleansed, did vitex and really researched to know her stuff.   She also mentions about progesterone cream and how it works and when it helped and when it didn’t.   The creams are in our catalog store under Cycle Balance Cream and Happy PMS Cream.   I think this is powerful. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please visit our blogging site instead for the most uptodate version of this page: Anne had a baby boy on December 10th, 2000. here is her story – it’s long but awesome This will just be a little bit on how I believe I was able to conceive. 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...

Cleansing and Detoxing

At InfertilityWorkshop we believe that the best you can do for your baby is to love him before he is even conceived.  To do this cleansing and detoxification is a valuable time spent. The companies whose products we carry are those that understand this and produceproducts made specifically to deliver the body from toxic waste, chemicals, years of buildup due to poor eating habits and build the body in the process.  It is not enough,for instance to move your bowel regularly if it is forced.  Rather it is important to”build” while removing waste product and teach the body to work well on its own. Our trusted companies to this end can be found at Product Lines. These products may be purchased in our catalog store and you may write us for more information if it is not available here for you. Please read about the three month cleansing/shutdownthat many people have used in our group and around the world.

Natural Progesterone Cream Shutdown

According to Dr. John R. Lee, MD it is sometimes necessary to shut “off” the ovaries for a few months to allow the body to heal. PCOS, PCOD, short luteal phases, ovarian cysts and other similar fertility issues will impede the bodies ability to conceive. In our history of helping couples to conceive naturally we have to come to understand the connections between the liver, colon, (including parasites residing in them) kidneys and background issues inhibiting fertility.  Time always feels short, especially for couples who have been trying for some time to conceive. Naturally, couples are anxious about the time and don’t normally want to take 3 months off. Once we have helped them to understand the importance of cleansing, according to traditional Chinese medicine and herbal medicine’s wisdom, they can embark on a journey using a powerful plan to achieve fertility naturally AND safely.    We do not say powerful lightly. This plan WORKS! We have every reason to believe it may very well work for YOU! I will venture to say that most of the women (and men) who come through our site and support group take part in this cleanse. Most leave pregnant; IF they have followed the plan to get healthier. We have put these pages together since 1998, through the study of alternative medicine, traditional folk uses of herbs, and for restoration and building of the body.  In this case of course, we focus on finding information to support these actions in the reproductive “department.” It is our wish to help you conceive, as many others have, naturally.

Q: What other products/herbs/foods might be helpful to use during this time? A: Let me answer this by explaining a little about how the body works. This will help you understand why some things might not be good right now and why others may help the process along. There are 12 systems in the body. Although the cleanse is targeted toward certain systems, all twelve body systems, of course, will be affected in general. These 12 systems are: * Excretory System – large colon * Digestive System – liver, salivary glands, gall bladder and pancreas * Endocrine System – Glands, pineal, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries, testes * Lymphatic System – spleen, thymus, appendix, tonsils, lymph nodes, lymph vessels and fluid * Urinary System – kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra * Reproductive System – ovaries, ova, testes, sperm Nervous System – brain, spinal cord, nerves * Circulatory System – heart, blood vessels, blood * Integumentary System – skin, hair, nails, oil and sweat glands Respiratory System – lungs, trachea, bronchi, bronchial tubes, alveoli * Skeletal System – all bones, cartilage, joints * Muscular System – all muscular tissue. The purpose of a good cleanse is to clean, repair and rebuild these systems as quickly, healthily and thoroughly and as naturally as possible Consider some of the following products for an ideal cleanse which will take charge of your entire body. These are combinations and single herbs or supplements traditionally used and most researched in these areas. Please read the product pages for more individual herbal information.

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.
