 Changing Diet may Improve Fertility

Changing one's diet may help improve fertility, according to Sarah Dobbyn, a nutritionist and author of The Fertility Diet.

"Huge amounts of money are being spent on assisted conception techniques by hopeful couples who do not know that alcoholic and caffeinated beverages are liquid contraceptives, sweeteners can prevent ovulation and seemingly innocent foods such as peas, rhubarb and soya all inhibit fertility," said Miss Dobbyn.

She says that women must shun alcohol, caffeinated drinks, peas and rhubarb. There is no place for smoking, artificial sweeteners and even soya.

However beans, pulses, organic herbs, spices and nuts are to be consumed in plenty. Whenever possible fruits and vegetables must be consumed raw so as to balance the hormones in the body.

"It is a pain to give up caffeine, it is a pain to give up wine, but won't it be worth it when you have your own baby?" Miss Dobbyn said.
