How a Plant-Based Diet Improves Fertility

How a Plant-Based Diet Improves Fertility

We have heard many success stories about infertile couples who have been able to conceive a child after switching to a whole-food, nutrient-dense, plant-based diet.

According to this article by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, "Approximately 7.3 million women in the U.S. have impaired ability to become pregnant, and 10-17% of couples experience infertility or subfertility at some time." 

Nutritional excellence promotes the health and performance of every cell, organ, and system in our bodies. By replacing nutrient-deficient foods, toxins, and chemicals with micronutrient-rich foods, exercise, and weight loss, we give our bodies the chance to heal and function optimally. There are several lifestyle behaviors that infertile women can change that can positively affect their fertility in Dr. Fuhrman's article "Six Ways To Improve Fertility."
