Nutrition and fertility

Aug 17, 2015

Nutrition and Fertility are more inextricably entwined than you may initially think. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) different foods are categorized into temperature categories based on how they interact with your body: cold, cooling, neutral, warming, and hot. When attempting to become pregnant, you should seek foods that are “warming.”

 

Examples include: Leafy greens, seaweed, barley, burdock root, carrot, turnip, parsnip, cherry and peach and raspberry (lightly cooked), garlic, chives, leeks, fennel, cinnamon, ginger, clove, black beans, chicken or trout or salmon (lightly cooked), and walnuts.

The concept behind having warming foods is that it enhances the Qi, so that you have the strength to conceive, as well as keeping the uterus warm.
