Nutritional Therapy & Natural Medicine


Infertility can result from the wrong level of acidity in the vagina, making it hostile to sperm. It can also be caused by excess mucus in the body blocking the fallopian tubes. In both partners, adequate zinc levels are very important to aid sexual performance and fertility. Zinc deficiencies in men can lead to low sperm count and low sperm motility. Vegetarians and vegans are more likely to be deficient in zinc because animal products are valuable sources. However, supplementing with zinc alone is not advisable because it can throw other important nutrients out of balance. There are many factors that can be addressed by nutritional therapy to try to enable conception and to produce a healthy baby when the time comes.
