As you may be aware optimal fertility boils down to optimal health. Most people feel they eat a balanced and nutritious diet. After all being sick means you’re confined to bed and can’t perform your daily duties. So if things are not that bad you think that you must be healthy. However minor symptoms which come and go frequently are a sign of suboptimal health that needs addressing if optimal fertility is desired. Here’s a list of symptoms you should take seriously if they keep recurring:
These are cries for help and can signal a food intolerance, an allergy, toxicity, compromised immunity, nutrient deficiency, wrong diet for your body type, metabolic imbalances, hormonal irregularities, inflamed intestinal wall, infection, neurotransmitter imbalance etc…
So as you can see your health and fertility may very much be compromised even though you can still go to work and you don’t have to stay in bed.
Sperm cells and egg cells are the most sensitive cells in your body. This is also why they were so carefully tucked away in the body as to be protected as much as possible from external influences. But their location does not protect them from internal influences which they get exposed to from your diet, lifestyle and pollutants in your immediate environment.
