Balanced Diet


  When you think of fertility, do you think of dieting? Most people do not think of dieting when it comes to fertility. In general, people strive for a balanced diet and try to eat “healthy”, but what we eat may influence our fertility more than we think.  Studies have shown that a diet high in low-fat dairy may increase the risk of anovulatory infertility in women though, the opposite can be said for male fertility.  According to studies, it is suggested that men should consume lower fat dairy due to the fact that the increased estrogen in full-fat dairy may negatively affect the morphology and mobility of sperm. Chinese medicine commonly uses food as medicine and bases its dietary recommendations on the individual patient’s constitution and underlying condition. Additionally, it will similarly place emphasis on one’s diet while trying to conceive. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are very personalized and effective for many reasons. So each patient male and female may receive different advice depending on what the goal of the treatment is.
