  • Eat a diet with plenty of protein and good fats and low in carbohydrates.

  • Avoid plastic. Drink from a glass or glass water bottle and avoid plastic wrap and containers.
  • Drink 2-3 litres of filtered water daily.
  • Eliminate soft drinks and other sugary foods such as lollies and biscuits.
  • Add cinnamon to smoothies or protein shakes to help stabilise blood sugar.
  • Reduce alcohol to an occasional treat or better still, eliminate altogether.
  • Quit drinking coffee and switch to tea instead.
  • Drink herbal teas instead of caffeinated drinks. Try licorice tea or spearmint tea.
  • Learn all you can about eating low GI foods and lowering the glycaemic index of your meal by food combining.
  • Take a high-quality multivitamin such as NaturoBest’s Preconception Multi for Women, along with a calcium and magnesium supplement such as
    Calcium & Magnesium Plus K2 & D3.
  • Have blood tests every three months with a fertility naturopath, herbalist, or nutritionist to monitor your progress.
