1. Use Fertility Charting to See Where You’re at Hormonally
Fertility charting is wonderful because it gives you huge insights as to what’s going on in your body.
It lets you know:
- If and when you’re ovulating
- The length of your luteal phase
- If you have possible hormonal issues
- If you have potential thyroid issues
Once you start charting, you can ask your doctor about anything else that comes up.
2. Eat a Healthy Diet
Following a healthy diet is always beneficial, but here are some specific things for women over 35 to be aware of.
Get Enough Antioxidants
Antioxidants must be actively in your blood for them to consistently fight off free radicals. For this reason, you should be eating antioxidant-rich foods all day long.
Another reason antioxidants are important is because they protect cells – including egg (and sperm) cells.
So, loading up on colorful, antioxidant-rich foods is the way to go to keep your fertility health in tip-top shape.
Eat Plenty of Fiber
Fiber helps the body cleanse itself of excess hormones and regulate blood sugar levels. These things are essential when you’re trying to boost fertility health.
To get enough fiber, make sure to include lots of fruits, veggies, beans, and whole grains in your diet.
3. Reduce Toxins
Be aware of cigarette smoke, overconsumption of alcohol, high levels of stress, and chemicals found in household products.
Chemicals in cleaners, fragrances, and other products can mimic hormones in the body.
Because of this, it’s important to research and choose safe alternatives to everyday products.
4. Manage Your Stress
Stress management is essential when it comes to fertility. This is because too much cortisol can have a huge impact on your hormones.
And your hormones affect the maturation and release of an egg during ovulation.
So, you should have a stress management program in place for long term and in-the-moment stress. Herbs, extracts, and essential oils are great tools for this.
5. Cleanse the Body and the Home
Fertility cleansing has been an extremely helpful element for many of our clients over the last 13 years.
This helps the body with its natural cleansing and detoxification processes. It’s a kind of “restart” that helps the liver and uterus work optimally.
Cleansing the Home
Additionally, make sure your home is a safe environment for your fertility and hormonal health. This means keeping an eye out for those toxins we mentioned earlier.
6. Support Egg Health
Supporting your egg health is a vital part of your overall fertility health.
Of course, all the tips mentioned here will boost your egg health, but we do offer specific resources for this.
While getting pregnant at 35 and older is more difficult than when you’re in your 20s, it’s certainly still possible.
By taking the steps we talked about above, you’re already off to an incredible start in supporting your fertility health.
