How to Increase Fertility Naturally BEXLIFE- Miltalie, South Australia
Rebekah: Hey guys. It's Bex here and I amhere with the lovely Alisa Vitti in her apartment in New York City, surrounded by baby things. Alisa: Yes. Rebekah: The last time you were on Bex Life,you were not pregnant. I was not pregnant and we were talking about birth control. Alisa: Right, and why we should all get offof it. Rebekah: We didn't take it and look whathappened to us. Alisa: Well, this was by planning, yes.
Rebekah: And this was by planning too. Alisa: That's right. Rebekah: I'm really excited because I'm36 and you're 37. Alisa: And look at how young and gorgeouswe look. Rebekah: I know. We are gorgeous! Alisa: Gorgeous. Rebekah: Healthy, vibrant. We are of advancedmaternal age. I can hardly get the words out. Alisa: Technically speaking, yes.
Rebekah: It's so gross. I hate â€“ I don'teven like saying that. Alisa: I know, I know. Rebekah: We only advanced in intellect andbeauty, really. Alisa: Amen. Love it. Love it! Rebekah: But a lot of our girlfriends arehaving babies, having their first babies. This is your first. This is my fifth. I'mnot the norm and they're having trouble and girlfriends our age and girlfriends youngerthan us and their men. Alisa: Yes.
Rebekah: What's going on? Alisa: I think it's a growing and somewhatfor whatever reason silent epidemic, this rise in infertility, both male and femaleinfertility, and what is termed idiopathic meaning no known cause. So you go. You haveyour checkup. Everything looks normal. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to makethe baby. But you can't. In my ten plus years now of working with couplesand individuals on their fertility, there are three reasons that I see that are kindof at the core of why people are not able to have that reproductive capacity and thatfertile window be as big and wide as it should
be, right? Because you're really â€“ the whole reasonby the way why the pill was such a good thing back 50 years ago, 60 years ago when it cameout was because women were having their eighth, ninth baby at 45 because there was no wayto prevent additional pregnancies and they were fertile, perfectly fertile well intotheir 40s. Now we have women struggling in their midto late 20s. So what has changed? Here's what I think has changed. One, we're beingexposed to way more chemicals than we ever have been before.
The statistic that I have just read aboutis that your grandparents' generation was exposed to chemicals over the course of theirlifetime that you are exposed to in a 30day period. You're exposed to more chemicalsin 30 days than they were their entire lives. Rebekah: That's so scary. Alisa: And these chemicals of course are endocrinedisruptive which means they're really messing with your fertility. So that's reason numberone. Reason number two is that we are micronutrientdeficient in ways that we just are not realizing. We're eating like different kinds of diets.We're cutting out big macronutrients. We're
Why Do Women Put on Weight After 40
Why do women put on weight after 40? Women's' bodies slow down at menopause,the same way men start gaining weight as they lose testosterone. Guys don't necessarily gain weight as theyage. They start losing muscle mass. If they don'tcut back on calories or work out more, they start gaining weight. Or just a beer belly. Women tend to see a sudden drop off of estrogenaround 40 with menopause, so the weight gain
seems more sudden. Guys see a slow declineafter 30. Is menopause a death sentence, or a diet sentence?Where you have to diet the rest of your life? The natural weight gain can be avoided bywalking at least an hour a day. In short, working out more than you did beforemenopause but when you have less energy. That's why older people tend to gain a poundevery few years, regardless of gender. I've heard of women taking medications andprescriptions to avoid the weight gain. Taking estrogen will offset the likely weightgain, as well as reduce the risk of heart attacks that the shut down of the ovariescause. And it slows osteoporosis.
Then why do so many women take herbal supplementsinstead of taking estrogen? Because taking estrogen increases the riskof breast cancer, uterine cancer and other types of reproductive cancer. And stroke,dementia, gall stones and blood clots. Gain weight and lose bone mass or face thoserisks. No wonder it's a difficult decision. At least estrogen also reduces the risk ofbroken hips, heart attacks and such. It's better than a lot of the stupider things womentry to lose weight like cabbage soup diets and cookie diets. I'd try a cookie diet.
I'll say now, it only works if you don'teat anything BUT the few nutrient packed cookies. And it isn't a general pass to pig out onchocolate chip cookies.
