Look up “fertility” on Google and you’re likely to find a slew of articles geared towards women. Which makes sense, considering that it’s women who have to “try to get pregnant” and then carry a baby to term.
Fertility is defined by “the quality of being fertile” or the “ability to conceive children or young.”
All kinds of magazines and wellness publications boast the top ways for women to boost their fertility, listing everything from keeping a healthy weight to steering clear of pesticides. Rarely, though, do they touch on ways for men to improve their role in conception.
After all, it does take two to tango – making a baby does not happen alone!
At Dr. Gena Chiropractic, a family chiropractic care center in Plantation, we work with many expectant couples, and often hear about their fertility journeys. While expectant moms are more inclined to share the methods they followed in order to increase their chances of conceiving, more and more, we’re hearing about what their other halves are doing too.
Men are beginning to take a more active role in preparing their bodies to take part in conception. Men and fertility are a crucial part of the baby-making process!
If you’re a woman who is ready to start conceiving, or a man who wants to increase male fertility, here are the top 5 methods for boosting male fertility, naturally:
Reduce exposure to chemicals
The semen of the average man today has half the sperm, and of poorer quality, than 50 years ago. This is believed to be caused by exposure to xenoestrogens (PCBs, DDT, dioxin, other pesticides, plastics and industrial pollutants) that mimic the effects of estrogen. To minimize your exposure to these toxins, avoid:
Healthy body, healthy sperm, right? Right! According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, regular exercise and a healthy diet work to enhance fertility by keeping body weight at normal levels as well as relieving stress and anxiety.
Improve your diet
Maintaining a healthy body weight is instrumental when it comes to male reproductive issues. Obesity has been associated with a low sperm count and lack of sex drive and restrictive eating in men can also result in the same issues. Getting a healthy amount of whole grains, fruits and veggies can help boost fertility in men.
Herbs are an all-natural way to boost fertility and sex drive in men. Here are the top-rated herbal supplements for fertility:
And most importantly – keep your nervous system in check!
Your nervous system is the control center for your ENTIRE body. The importance to getting a nervous system check-up, a la chiropractic care, throughout the fertility/conception process is essential. Dr. Gena says, “It’s important to remove subluxations to the areas affecting nerve transmission from the brain out to the reproductive organs (for both men and women). This combined with everything else mentioned are some of the best keys to help ensure fertility success.”
Infertility affects roughly 15% of the reproductive age population, with 40% of those cases attributed to men. For more information on best health practices for fertility, visit Dr. Gena Chiropractic today!
