Introduced in the 1960’s the Pill contains synthetic hormones in doses up to 50 times higher than would be found in pregnancy. Today’s children are born to mothers and grandmothers who may have taken The Pill to suppress fertility. 75% of women with fertility problems have taken the Pill.
The coil or IUD is usually made from plastic or copper. Copper causes the body to hold on to oestrogens and cause oestrogen dominance, in which oestrogen rises as progesterone falls. Copper also causes zinc deficiency – a mineral necessary for reproductive health.
In the 1930’s and 40’s Dr Weston Price studied 14 indigenous hunter gatherer tribes around the globe. He not only found them to be stronger and healthier than their ‘civilised’ counterparts, but also noted there were no fertility problems or birth defects. Prospective parents were subjected to an 18 month training for parenthood to ensure they were as healthy and fit as possible. They were given the best quality food and embarked upon a programme of gruelling physical exercise. Contrast this with today’s casual attitude towards becoming pregnant with little or no prior detoxification, nutrient optimisation or even avoidance of alcohol – which, incidentally is spermicidal.
Did you know that for a sperm to penetrate the ova (egg) it needs to have a pointed head (acrosome) that is high in zinc. Today’s diet tends to be low in zinc due to the effects of pesticides, alcohol and sugar consumption. If the sperm lacks zinc it will simply bounce off the egg.
Low sperm counts and poor sperm motility respond well to nutritional therapy.
Miscarriage can be the body’s way of detoxifying in preparation for a subsequent pregnancy.
The drugs used in IVF contain high levels of hormones to force pregnancy regardless of nutritional status or toxic loading. These hormones can affect the future health of the mother and baby.
Nutritional therapy has a 90% success rate in the treatment of infertility because it addresses the causes. IVF has an average 20% success rate, including miscarriages.
