FERTILITY AND OUR FUTURE
• 22 min. read
When we are young, we often imagine that we will have children when we grow up. Over the years, we start to hear it from others as well: "When you have your own daughter..." or "This will be a story you will tell your son someday". We are brought up to take for granted a family consisting of parents and children. It becomes an expectation that comes from both ourselves and others.
Therefore, if you decide as an adult that you want to start a family, but conception or pregnancy turns out to be problematic, it can be very discouraging in many ways. There is an ingrained idea of what a family looks like, and suddenly that foundation is shaken. Then come the emotions of loss—both of a person and of a vision of the future—often followed by feelings of inferiority or guilt. It's also common to feel like you've let others down, whether it's your partner who was hoping for a daughter or a son or your parents who are expecting a grandchild.
What people who struggle with infertility go through is devastating. We're sure you know someone who has struggled to have a baby. Maybe it was you, hoping month after month to see a positive pregnancy test result, or praying you wouldn't miscarry again and being disappointed each time. Countless people have been in this situation, tried every technique known to increase their fertility, only to face the loss again.
All these people can confirm: infertility is one of the greatest mysteries of our time. At first glance, it looks like a biological process that should run smoothly. In practice, it is often a source of frustration, confusion, frustration, self-recrimination and despair. Although the medical community has developed methods that help some people create the families of their dreams, the main problem remains: why do so many people who want to start a family have difficulties along the way?
Barrenness is a sign of our times. In our modern age, women and men face so many challenges, from stress to pollutants and pathogens. This overload puts a strain on the body, sometimes leading to the heartbreaking result of someone being unable to conceive. Believe it or not, however, infertility is not only a result of changes for the worse, it is also a byproduct of progress. Women were once expected to start a family young, and alternatives to this norm were limited. Much of a woman's attention was focused on conception at an early age, and because of the mind-body connection, this meant that the body's reserves were directed to the reproductive system.
Today, women have many more options. Although women still do not get all the respect and freedom they deserve, the role of women in society is much more developed than it used to be. Conceiving at a young age is often no longer a priority – and rightfully so. Many women prefer to get an education, explore different career paths, and travel in early adulthood rather than have children right away. They take the time to find the right partner instead of settling for someone who lives up to others' expectations. They seek to live their lives to truly discover themselves before starting a family.
So, if the time comes when a woman's priorities change and she is ready to get pregnant, her body is not necessarily ready. Sometimes this is due to anti-fertility drugs, foods or chemicals that the woman has unknowingly been exposed to in her life. Sometimes this is due to a hidden illness that she did not know until now that could disrupt her family plans. And often at play is the reproductive system, which needs recharging with energy and attention. (Of course, sometimes it's none of the above and we actually need to look at the male side of the equation).
In his book "The Most Useful Foods" , Anthony William recounts the case of one of his patients named Monica, who visited him in agony over the inability to conceive. At the time, she was 38 years old and considered being a mother one of her life's goals. Yet every time she got pregnant, she soon miscarried. Monica felt tired, helpless, worried that her window of fertility was closing and did not want to give up hope. "I just don't understand," she said. "I thought having children was supposed to be the most natural process in the world. Why do I feel like I'm putting up some kind of desperate struggle?"
When Anthony William does a reading on her problems, the Spirit of Compassion reveals that a hidden viral problem is draining her reproductive system's "battery" ( a concept we'll cover further down the article ), preventing proper ovulation. All of her body's energy was directed at fighting the virus. Before she could be in the best possible shape to carry a baby, she needed to heal herself and redirect her body's resources to her reproductive system. Following Anthony William's guidance, which we share in this article, Monica finally gave birth to a healthy boy one year later, and a girl three years later. With proper care for her reproductive system, she realized her dream of being a mother.
It's time for more people to experience healing like Monica's, to connect the progress of our society with a true understanding of how fertility works. In this article, we'll look at all of the above, including the workings of the female reproductive system that are still unknown to science, as well as how to give your body the optimal care it desires to have the best chance of conceiving. of a healthy baby. If you've traveled everywhere and tried everything, there's still hope. Infertility is not something you did to yourself. It is not a punishment, a label, or a life sentence. Your desire to expand your family is not only natural, but also noble: our survival as a species depends on caring and dedicated people like you to raise the new generations that will carry us into the future.
The future of the human race
It is imperative for the survival of the human race that the infertility rates on the planet begin to reverse. This may surprise you. As Anthony William mentions in his books, although the population is seemingly growing, humanity is headed for a major demographic crisis. You might think that while infertility is personally devastating to the people it affects, it won't stop the world's population from continuing to grow. The truth is that we are headed for a much different future than the growth models predict. Right now, yes, the number of people on earth continues to increase. However, we are approaching a plateau as the infertility rate rises sharply. After forty years, as many as 50% of women of childbearing age will not be able to have a child. The total population will begin to decline.
If we want to stay afloat in the challenges ahead, the time to understand and deal with the infertility situation is now. The future doesn't have to be bleak. There are measures you can take to protect your reproductive health to ensure a bright future.
A hidden cause of infertility
We are all familiar with the concept of a dead battery. Ever since rechargeable batteries were invented, we've had to remember to keep them charged—with varying degrees of success. Have you ever had your phone run out of steam in the middle of the day because you forgot to turn it on the night before? We've all seen the little battery icon drop to red, knowing that our device is struggling to get power and that it won't be long before it's functional at all—unless we recharge it.
If the human body was equipped with an indicator light, most women with infertility problems would see a low battery warning. That's because a woman's reproductive system is like a battery: it takes proper care, foresight and attention to recharge and function at full capacity. If you're a woman struggling with infertility, there's a good chance your reproductive system needs a recharge.
Many women who have been trying to conceive for some time report that they pay a lot of attention to their reproductive system so that its batteries are working at full capacity. They eat well, track their periods, use positive visualization – all of that. Anthony William has always encouraged such women that these are excellent steps to take, they just need to know some secrets about how the reproductive system works to take their efforts to the next level.
Reproductive system with dead battery
First, it is important to understand how the reproductive system is exhausted. The main factor is birth control. Nowadays, many women take birth control pills in hopes of avoiding an unwanted pregnancy until they are at a stage in their lives where they are ready to conceive. As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, of course it is vital for women to progress in society and have the freedom to choose how their lives develop. You just need to be aware that if you've been on birth control, your body has learned to divert resources from your reproductive system. Some women may start taking the pill (or any form of contraceptive) as early as high school and continue into their late 20s or beyond. Some who started taking the pill in their teens and stopped taking it after college in hopes of starting a family right away may have been on it for eight years. That's eight years their body has been trained not to give birth. That doesn't mean it's guaranteed that she'll have trouble conceiving when she goes off the pill, it just means that if she does, it's a likely factor.
Other forms of contraception, from abstinence to barrier contraceptives, can have a similar effect, because the more years a woman goes without becoming pregnant, the less energy goes to her reproductive system and the more her body learns the pattern of pregnancy retention. (Of course, low battery doesn't mean no battery; many women can confirm that they conceived when they were actively trying to avoid pregnancy.)
This is not to say that women should not delay having children - not at all. It's just important to understand that when going from avoiding pregnancy to trying for it, the body may need some time and support to adjust.
Recharging the reproductive battery
Have you ever let your car sit in the garage for too long? Have you been busy or maybe you've been away and when you finally get a chance to get back behind the wheel and turn the key, you hear the engine choking as it tries to draw power from the battery? This is because, as we all know, the car needs time in motion for the alternator to keep the battery charged. Once you finally got the engine running, all the car probably needed was a good, long drive, and then some consistent time on the road to get it back into working order.
While the workings of a woman's body, especially her reproductive system, are of course much more complex and mysterious than that of a car, the maintenance mentality is the same one you should apply to your fertility quest. A woman's reproductive system has its own soul with a specific set of needs. In addition to avoiding certain antifertility factors, eating a variety of life-giving, fertility-enhancing foods and using spiritual techniques—all of which we'll cover later in the article—are a critical part of how to send your body the message that you're ready to having a baby is about learning how to consciously rewire your system so that you are ready to create a new life.
This is different from focusing on your desire to conceive. It is also not the same as the meditations we will mention at the end of this article. It's about making that mind-body connection happen physically so that your body learns that it's time to start devoting resources to every single part of your reproductive system to get it back up and running.
Here's the exercise: Imagine plugging a cable into your reproductive system to charge it. Imagine how every part of your reproductive system - from the uterus, through the fallopian tubes to the ovaries - draws energy from this source.
It may sound crazy or abstract, but it's still a very powerful technique and it works. Nowadays, our bodies are highly adapted to technology. Our eyes are staring at screens from morning to night, gadgets wrapped around our wrists follow our every move, and our phones are always within arm's reach. As a result of this constant exposure to technology, our bodies really connect with the concept of being connected to the web.
The key is to perform the exercises regularly to make them part of your daily routine. If you have a normal schedule for turning on your phone, such as every night before bed, follow the same procedure to visualize your physical charge. If you and your partner are struggling with infertility, if you've both seen a doctor and can't find any reason for your difficulties, this technique, combined with the other treatment tips in this article, could be the turning point.
Men and fertility
To increase male fertility, it is necessary to go back to the basics. There are no magic recipes in this area, nor will an overly complicated approach help you. Instead, you should focus on the following simple steps to increase sperm count and motility.
First, it is important for men to reduce their mercury levels. Mercury in the body is a huge cause of male fertility decline, so if you're a man trying to start a family, it's important to add spirulina , frozen wild blueberries , cilantro, garlic, barley grass juice powder , and Atlantic seaweed such as dulse . And it's not about taking some of them just once in a while, you want to make this a daily protocol over an extended period of time.
Also, the same diet that promotes female fertility also promotes male fertility, so men should make sure they get plenty of the right foods for this. And the anti-fertility foods and chemicals listed below are just as important for men to avoid as they are for women. In addition, the herb ashwagandha can be very beneficial for male fertility, as well as nettle leaves , red clover flowers, vitamin B12 and zinc .
Zinc is actually one of the most valuable minerals when it comes to male sperm health. Not only is it important to eat foods rich in zinc (such as turnip greens, radishes, artichokes, nettle leaves, parsley and onions) and possibly supplement with zinc , it is also important to maintain zinc stores, by refraining from ejaculation that is not intended to produce offspring, as frequent discharges increase the likelihood that sperm will be sluggish, apathetic and malnourished, both from overuse and from the loss of zinc stores with each discharge. Instead, abstain for the best chance of strong, healthy sperm.
Factors that interfere with fertility
If you're trying to have a baby, you should definitely limit your exposure to toxins. And if you've read Anthony William's book The Most Healthy Foods , then you also know that the Four Merciless are a threat to everyone's health. Radiation, DDT, toxic heavy metals , and virus booms have a direct impact on fertility levels, and the best way to combat the risk is through awareness and the healing power of food. It's also important to know that there are other hidden factors, including foods, chemicals, and activities that can compromise fertility and drain the reproductive battery. To have the best chance of conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy, pay attention to the information that follows.
Foods that interfere with fertility
If you have been trying to conceive and so far have been unsuccessful for no apparent reason, it would be a good idea to stay away from foods that contain high levels of adrenaline. These are foods of animal origin (chicken, turkey, lamb and other types of meat, fish and dairy products) and due to the high level of stress that the animal experienced during its slaughter or capture, they are saturated with adrenaline. It acts as a contraceptive, and while many women eat meat and get pregnant, others are very sensitive to its negative effects, even in small amounts. You could reduce your animal food intake by 50% or consume the meat of small animals, for example birds, including pheasants and chickens, as their adrenal glands are very small. After you give birth, you will be able to eat whatever you want again.
Other foods that can trigger and worsen conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, salpingitis, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts - and thus interfere with fertility - are eggs, corn, wheat, canola oil, dairy products , aspartame and monosodium glutamate (be aware of products that contain it), as well as conventionally grown and unsprouted soybeans. If you have polycystic ovary syndrome or endometriosis and are advised to consume eggs, do not be misled. This advice is not based on truth. Eggs not only help with these diseases, but also contribute to their development, as they feed the pathogens that cause them. (You can read more about eggs and other harmful foods in Anthony William's book The Best Foods .)
Chemicals that interfere with fertility
When you're pregnant or trying to conceive, you need to protect your reproductive system from the attacks of phytotoxic hormones, chemicals found in pesticides, herbicides and plastics because they disrupt hormonal balance. Make every effort to limit your exposure to these harmful substances. Also avoid chlorine and fluoride.
Actions that interfere with fertility
As we mentioned earlier in the article, spending years not wanting to have a baby or looking for the right partner – all the while taking measures not to get pregnant – can sometimes mean your body gets used to not conceiving. So if you've had this mindset in the past and now want to have a baby, you may need to take active measures, such as the reloading exercise above, to reset your reproductive system.
Another main factor for problematic conception in women is increased stress levels, the functioning of the reproductive system is hampered not only by foods saturated with adrenaline, but also by the excess of adrenaline produced by the body when a person is under great stress. Then the body's defense mechanisms are activated. If you are experiencing strong emotional excitement or another form of intense tension, the body instinctively tries to prevent the additional stress that the baby would cause the body. The adrenaline released in the fight-or-flight response also acts as a steroid to prevent conception. (Some steroids produced by the body—such as thyroxine in the thyroid gland—promote fertility.)
Adrenal fatigue can also prevent conception, as the adrenal glands are involved in the synthesis of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone in a woman. When these glands are hypo or hyperactive, it is a sign of hormonal imbalance that would prevent conception. If you have problems with the adrenal glands and you want a child, it would be best if you made a habit of eating (every hour and a half - two) - this way the glands will not have to work overtime to compensate for the drop in the blood level sugar. The foods that follow will also help the body deal with stress without going to extremes.
A woman's reproductive system has a soul of its own. This means that when trying to develop her fertility, it is important to take something beyond the physical steps mentioned above. There is a very real element of spiritual care in this regard. Just as partners try to get in sync with each other when trying to conceive, it's important to get in touch, soul to soul, with your own reproductive system. The meditations that follow offer an opportunity to do just that, and also serve as powerful methods of coping with stress.
Meditation in motion
During this meditative walk, tell your reproductive system that it is allowed to conceive. Give her your one hundred percent support. Honor her as a separate and holy being connected directly to the heavens, and realize that she may have felt isolated up until this point. She hears you and wants you to respect her. Do not bombard her with demands, but encourage her with love as you would with a child dear to your heart who listens to your guidance, but until now has been afraid to blossom. Call upon the Angel of Fertility for support. Make this walking meditation part of your daily routine. Each time you finish, ask yourself if you feel like you really gave your reproductive system permission to conceive and that it heard you.
Inhaling white light
Lying on your back in a quiet room, take deep, gentle breaths with your eyes closed. Imagine that your mouth and nose are in your lower abdomen and that with each inhalation you are bringing white light directly into your reproductive organs. This is an exercise that aims to boost the recharging of your womb. When you are so busy that you are constantly breathing rapidly, moving from one stressful situation to the next, the body learns to focus on dealing with crisis situations. Everything happens in the head, so your valuable resources go there. By taking the time to do this breathing meditation, you are training your mind and body to lower this attention. As you take heavenly light into your reproductive system, you remind yourself physically and spiritually that right now you are truly focusing not on the noise of everyday life, but on this sacred mission.
As you pursue this calling, know that it will affect all aspects of your life. The intention to conceive carries a powerful charge. It unfolds, touches others, and changes your life, no matter what. If, despite your best efforts, you do not have a child, do not lose faith in the higher good or in your worth. Don't blame yourself. Whatever the outcome, the effort put into conceiving a child is never in vain. So many things in life are a process of conception and birth. This is how every great idea comes to fruition, and how every seed grows into a great sheltering tree. The energy you put into hoping for a new life will be redirected to something else new and beautiful. Every time you focus on a new life, you achieve harmony with the divine and give something good to the world.
