Getting Started: How to Create Your Fertility Program
Before planting a garden, one first prepares the soil, making sure it is rich with nutrients and all the components needed to help the seeds grow into healthy plants. Think of your fertility health in the same way. You can build a healthy foundation by supplying the body with necessary nutrients on a daily basis. What you are consuming day in and day out has an affect on the health of every cell in your body, including eggs and sperm, which matters when it comes to the health of your baby. Are you wondering how to get started?
In this guide, you will learn key areas of focus and the steps to take to create your own personalized fertility program. We find that on average it takes at minimum of 3-6 months to prepare the body for pregnancy, so keep that in mind as you create your own personal fertility program.
Step 1: Nutrition and Lifestyle
Eating a fertility diet in preparation for pregnancy and to boost fertility is one of the most powerful health changes you can make! Numerous studies have shown that specific changes to the diet can improve fertility, prevent recurrent miscarriage and support a healthy pregnancy.
Although we generally recommend beginning your journey to a healthy pregnancy with a fertility cleanse to remove excess toxins from a poor diet and lifestyle, nutrition plays a vital role when it comes to having a healthy body and reproductive system. The building blocks for hormones are found in the foods we eat.

Step 2: Foundational Cleansing
The time while you are preparing for conception is one of the most important times to create a healthy body in preparation for pregnancy. It is also the best time to do a fertility cleanse. Fertility cleansing is a way to support the body in preparation for conception by cleansing the uterus and liver. A fertility cleanse encourages the liver to cleanse the body of toxins and excess hormones. It also supports the uterus to cleanse itself of old stagnant blood and increases circulation to the uterus while tonifying the uterine tissues.
Step 3: Choose Herbs and Nutrients Specific to Fertility Health
While cleansing is beneficial, not just any cleanse is going to be beneficial for fertility. A fertility cleanse is specific to the reproductive system and assists the body in eliminating the additional burden of substances not good for fertility. Performing a one month Fertility Cleanse is one of the best first steps you can take in preparation for conception and to support normal hormonal balance.

Step 4. Circulation
Promoting circulation to the uterus is crucial for improving uterine health and for pregnancy preparation. The best way to get nutrients and oxygen rich blood to your uterus can be done through daily moderate-intensity exercise - walking and Fertility Yoga are great - Self Fertility Massage™ and Castor Oil Packs.
I absolutely love the direct connection to uterine health that takes place with Self Fertility Massage™ and Castor Oil Packs. There is really no other weekly practice that is so effective at increasing circulation to the uterus as these two natural therapies are.

Step 5. Build a Mind and Body Practice & Stress Management
This step rounds out your fertility journey through enhanced quality of life by teaching you how to manage stress. Stress has a huge impact on fertility by altering hormone balance. We know that trying for a baby isn’t a-walk-in-the-park for everyone. Let’s face it, trying to conceive can, at times, be really stressful. Implementing a daily mind and body practice is going to help you stay calm and focused, so you can achieve your goals in a more connected and meaningful way, all the while promoting hormonal harmony.
