JBS

Natural Fertility

In this age of increasing infertility rates, miscarriage, childhood diseases and genetic disorders, JBS Wellness focuses on the benefits of preparing both partners for the most important job they will ever do. We take a comprehensive therapeutic approach using chiropractic, nutritional and energetic techniques to improving both male and female fertility naturally.

Causes of Infertility

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse and affects approximately 15% of couples in the United States.

There are many causes of infertility, these are just a few:

  • PCOS – Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Endometriosis
  • Poor or lack of ovulation
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Blocked fallopian tubes
  • Auto-immune disorders
  • Estrogen dominance (low progesterone)
  • Low or poor quality sperm
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Stress
  • Toxins

At JBS Wellness, we believe that if the body is struggling to heal, reproduction can become a low priority for the body’s resources. We provide couples with an individually tailored program using chiropractic, manual therapy, whole food & herbal supplements, homeopathy, dietary & lifestyle changes, cycle & timing strategies and education to allow their bodies to heal and in turn give them the best chance of conception.

Preconception Health Care

In the same way a runner prepares for a marathon, Preconception Health Care focuses on couples optimizing their health for the best possible conception, pregnancy, birth and baby. The tools we use are the similar to the approach to infertility:

  • Regular chiropractic care
  • Nutritional consultation and supplementation
  • Good nutrition
  • Healthy lifestyle

Consider these actions in combination with a tailored program to optimize fertility:

  1. Eat healthy, nutritious, organic whole foods including plenty of vegetables, whole grains & protein. Avoid prepackage, canned and processed foods.
  2. Drink purified water to avoid exposure to various toxins & heavy metals.
  3. Avoid sugar, which can cause nutrient loss and endocrine dysfunction
  4. Avoid coffee (regular & decaf), which contains an enzyme that interferes with healthy sperm production along with caffeine that can disrupt both sexes.
  5. Reduce intake of dairy which can cause mucous build-up & interfere with the reproductive tract.
  6. Do not consume food or liquids that have been microwaved because of the damaging effects of non-ionizing radiation.
  7. Do not heat foods in plastic or drink warm liquids from a plastic container.
  8. Do not use artificial sweeteners as they are very toxic to the body.
  9. Avoid recreational drugs, nicotine and alcohol.
  10. Switch to natural personal care products and cosmetics to reduce exposure of synthetic hormones & dangerous toxins. (www.safecosmetics.org)
  11. Use only natural household cleaners to avoid exposure to dangerous solvents. Also switch from petroleum based, which can disrupt hormones, to a vegetable base laundry detergent. (www.seventhgeneration.com)
  12. Keep cell phones away from reproductive organs. Men should not have a laptop sitting in the lap to prevent increasing the temperature of the scrotum.
  13. Avoid having X-rays taken & air travel to reduce the amount of radiation exposure, which can have damaging effects to egg & sperm.
  14. Men must avoid hot tubs and saunas to avoid raising the temperature of the scrotum, which can damage sperm. Advisable to wear boxers instead of briefs to allow scrotum to stay cooler than body temperature.
  15. Exercise for a minimum of 30 min 4 times per week to encourage healthy elimination, lymphatic flow, detoxification & normalize weight.
  16. Manage stress through meditation and other relaxation techniques. Stress is a major factor in poor health & infertility.
