    Hi, regarding Julia Indichova's books, I have actually read both (Inconcievable and The Fertile Female), and while she did have trouble getting pregnant with her second child, her work is by no means related only to secondary infertility. She has helped numerous people get pregnant, from people who have never been pregnant before to people who have suffered from secondary infertility.

    Has anyone used honey for alternative health care? Raw honey, which is unpasteurized, has phytonutrients - as well as antibacterial and antifungal properties. The darker the honey the greater the antibacterial/antioxidant power. Lab studies have shown that honey can inhibit the growth of E. coli, salmonella, staphyloccocus and pseudomonas.

    When shopping for honey, you can be presented with a number of varieties depending on the floral source gathered by the bee. USDA grading of honey is dependent on calrity, aroma, flavor and absence of sediment. Grading has nothing to do with the darkness of the honey.

    Honey contains vitamins B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and amino acids. Minerals include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc.

    Manuka honey contains about 4 times greater the amounts of the above listed nutrients.

    It's said the word "honeymoon" stems from the ritual of couples taking a spoonful of honey at night to speed up babymaking. Honey has been said to rejuvenate aging sex organs in both men and women, stimulate ovarian function, improve egg quality and increase sexual stamina.

    *Honey can cause a dangerous disease known as botulism in infants, children under the age of one should never consume honey, raw or pasteurized.

    Had I known eating something sweet could potentially improve my fertility, I would have picked this over some of the other nasty foods I chose!

    great post k.c.a.

    and a great list! i almost have nothing to add or criticise
    only maybe the part about coffee...there are several conflicting studies about this, but it seems quite probable that ONE cup of coffee does not really hurt fertility that much.

    as the matter of fact, the best scientific evidence to date clearly says that mediterranean diet works best for women who are trying to conceive (which contains most of the stuff from your list). i've written tons of articles about it already, in my book there is a chapter on it, but for those who don't know any of that here is a link to one very good study published in fertility and sterility in 2010:

    mediterranean ivf - PubMed - NCBI

    fertility diet is also OK, but the data published originally by the harvard researchers were focused on women with ovulatory issues, which is only one aspect of infertility.

    Good point paleo mom.. I actually started a low GI diet and it has one cup of coffee for breakfast. The things that make coffee bad can be the creamers and the sugar that is used.

    I've been eating paleo for 5 yrs and I'm still not pregnant, so I know diet DOES play a part, but it's not 100%. I have unexplained infertility. According to my doc I'm the perfect picture of health. But I'm wording what your thoughts are on caffeine?

    If you are pregnant, always eat food that contains nutrition. Nutrition plays an important role to having a healthy reproductive system that helps to protect the egg and sperm. The fertility diet helps your body to equilibrium fertility issues and provides the building blocks for a healthy baby. So, you have to add fertility-boosting foods in your diet.
    - Beans
    - Green vegetables
    - Bananas
    - Almonds
    - Eggs
    - Broccoli
    - Brown rice
    - Milk
    - Meat
    - Sunflower seeds
