Natural Viagra Fertility Snacks & Supplements For Better Mood & Sex Drive

Are You Seeking a Better Mood and Sex Drive?

Specific ‘fertility fit’ exercises can help to improve mood (through the release of endorphins) and testosterone (one of your sex-drive hormones for men and women).

Food is Mother Nature’s gift to humanity to keep libido alive

Think about it, you are born a natural baby-making-machine so you can rely on Mother Nature to provide the healing solutions you seek if you are looking for a better sex life.

  1. Asparagus 
  2. Avocado
  3. Banana
  4. Beetroot
  5. Blueberries
  6. Eggs (free-range of course!)
  7. Chocolate (read more about the benefits of chocolate, here)
  8. Fish (oily, especially wild salmon)
  9. Maca (superfood root from Peru, needs to be consumed with Lucuma for maximum benefits)
  10. Nuts: Ranked in order: almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, peanuts (really classified as legumes!) and hazel nuts
  11. Olive oil (only cold pressed and never heated or you will de-nature the oil making it carcinogenic)
  12. Onions & garlic (in small doses and never consumed for more than two consecutive weeks because it is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal medicine, not to be part of a staple diet)
  13. Oysters (rich in zinc)
  14. Pumpkin seeds (rich in zinc)
  15. Thai Black Ginger (known as nature’s viagra!)

Black Thai Ginger is natural viagra

Black Thai Ginger (Kaempferia parviflora), is a plant from the Zingiberaceae family. This popular herb is a traditional Thai medicine for erectile dysfunction because it stimulates sexual performance and sperm density.

How does Black Thai Ginger improve erections and libido?

Black Thai Ginger includes the presence of PDE5 inhibitors.

PDE5 inhibitors function similarly to Viagra

These inhibitors increase blood flow to the testicles and stimulate the production of dopamine (a feel good hormone) within the hypothalamus, which leads to enhanced sexual performance.

It is also used to increase libido in women! In fact, the extensive list of benefits of Black Thai Ginger may surprise you:

Key Benefits of Black Thai Ginger

  • Enhanced sexual desire
  • Increased sexual motivation
  • Increased erectile performance
  • Increased sperm density
  • Anti-plasmodial (anti-cancer)
  • Antifungal
  • Mild antimycobacterial (antibiotic function used to treat diseases like TB)
  • Excellent antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Adaptogenic activity
  • Anti-allergic activity
  • Anti-cholinesterase activity (been linked to prevention and treatment for Alzheimer’s disease)
  • Anti-gastric ulcer effects
  • Anti-obesity effects
  • Anxiolytic and antidepressant effects

What does it taste like?

Black Thai Ginger tastes like ginger, but not as hot.

How do you take Black Thai Ginger?

Best taken in its organic form and in powder (£99.00 for 200g) which you can blend with your morning MSM fertility detox drink or in capsules (£36.00 for 50 capsules).

The Ultimate Fertility Detox Drink for Improving Sex Drive

 

  1. Start with 1 teaspoon of Powerfully Pure brand MSM and over time build up to a tablespoon over time
  2. Pour hot clean water from the kettle
  3. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and room temperature water
  4. Add Fertility Honey (maximum serving = 1 tablespoon a day) – buy here
  5. Add bio-available vitamin C (1 teaspoon) – buy here
  6. Apple Cider Vinegar (1 table spoon) if possible – buy here
  7. Mix in Black Thai Ginger for maximum sex-drive effect
    • NOTE: Wait 20 minutes before consuming any supplements or food

Best prepared in this order because the boiling hot water will destroy the properties of the honey. Enjoy!

You can also add Black Thai Ginger powder to your home made energy balls and smoothies. These are delicious ways you can enjoy natural viagra fertility snacks.

Natural Viagra Fertility Snack Ideas For Better Mood & Sex Drive

  • Raw chocolate brownies
  • Chia puddings
  • Paleo bars
  • Home-made wild salmon & avocado sushi with quinoa or cauliflower rice – instead of white rice(remember to use tamari as a dipping sauce and not standard ‘soy sauce’)
  • Home-made mushroom, avocado & egg sushi with quinoa or cauliflower rice – instead of white rice (remember to dip in tamari, not standard ‘soy sauce’)
  • Sweet potato chips
  • Kale chips
  • Trail Mix (mixed nuts with dried blue-berries, goji berries and dates)

*These are all listed in my fertility recipes (over 100 recipes that are included in my Online Fertile Lifestyle Course)

Basic Rules to Keep Your Sex Drive Alive

Choose snacks that do not have:
  1. Grains
  2. Processed vegetable oils
  3. Refined sugars
  4. Synthetic ingredients (E-numbers, ingredients that don’t sound like natural foods)
Choose snacks that include any of the 15 sexy foods listed and pictured above!

Enjoy!

The scientific link between mood and food

Yes, there is a scientific link between mood and food. Basically, your brain and gut are closely linked so when you eat well, your mood improves. When you put less strain on your digestive system you have more energy and it boosts fertility.

So… What more can I say except:

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates

Create Your Best Baby – With Clean Living

Create Your Best Baby – With Clean Living

 

Did you know Essential Oils can be safe for fertility and pregnancy?

Maybe you have heard they are not?

It all comes down to quality. Essential oils that are 100% organic (meaning they do not have the hormone disrupting chemicals of herbicides, fungicides and pesticides) and that are of the highest grade (therapeutic grade) are pure plant based medicinal oils.

Depositphotos_25288983_s-2015

doTERRA is a safe essential oil to use (and this is explained by Tatyana Tavares) whom I have teamed up with to educate you about ways you can create your best baby through clean living.

Whether you are trying to conceive or trying to hold your pregnancy through to full term this video (first of my free ‘Create Your Best Baby’ mini-series) will teach you how you can use organic, therapeutic grade essential oils safely.

The video I first of all invites you to become aware of the internal and external environment of your cells that will influence your egg health, your womb health, your wellbeing as well as your baby’s wellbeing.

As a fertility specialist for over 10 years now, I see countless clients who come to me with either unexplained infertility or secondary sub-fertility and I have found that through simple ‘clean living’ strategies they are soon on the road to faster fertility success.

You see, our homes are laden with toxic chemicals that were not around during our Grandparent’s days. Standard house-hold cleaning products and personal care products, even our drinking water are saturated in hazardous toxins that lead to unbalanced hormones (they are classified as being Endocrine Disruptors).

You can read more about this topic where I have listed a few articles here.

 

This episode talks about living toxic-free and making a few changes to your cleaning products to create a cleaner home environment (that is child-friendly and hormone balancing too).

 

(We understand you are busy, so these videos are kept short and punchy – no longer than 20 minutes.
Still don’t have time to watch the whole video?
Simply scroll down to some of our tips below which are an extension of the video)

How to create a toxic-free home

Natural cleaning products for a child-friendly home that won’t disrupt your hormones

  1. Citrus Oils (Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange)
  2. Eucalyptus
  3. Malaleuca (Tea-tree)
  4. Vinegar
  5. Bi-carb soda

 

How it works

Make up a solution of vinegar, filtered water and either citrus, eucalyptus or tea-tree. For stubborn stains you can use oregano and bi-carb soda

Natural mould remover

Clove

Natural and non-toxic limescale remover

Food grade Citric Acid crystals

Hand sanitiser blend + travel companion so you don’t get sick on planes, etc

Combine Colloidal Silver and Gold Blend (here) with Cassia & Cinnamon Essential Oil

To clean and purify the air in the home put these in your diffuser

  • OnGuard – Protective Blend
  • Lemongrass
Our gift to you

We understand how overwhelming this might be to embrace, but do not worry.

Tatyana is willing to offer you a lifetime of complimentary essential oil coaching so you know how to utilise doTERRA essential oils.

I am willing to offer you free step-by-step training on how to embrace clean living for a healthier, happier, easier fertility and pregnancy journey.

How to Increase Feel Good Hormone Serotonin When Trying to Conceive

How to Increase the Feel Good Hormone Serotonin When Trying to Conceive

Jump for Joy

 

(By Fiona Kacz-Boulton)

Trying to conceive with all the ups and downs you can endure along the way can be a painful and isolating struggle.

Both stress and depression negatively impact your fertility because they create hormone imbalances.

It is like a fast-acting downward spiral that only seems to be made worse when people around you keep announcing their ‘happy news’ that they are pregnant, or; when people keep saying “just don’t worry about it and it will happen,” or; “just relax and be happy.”

These kinds of comments only take your feelings of sadness to a state of heightened anger!

 

If you are not careful and allow yourself to sink into a state of depression or become riddled with stress, it will further reduce your chances of fertility and parenthood success – creating such a vicious cycle of heartache.

TTC Depression - Im fine

In a desperate attempt to cope, you read about the benefits of meditation. You practice your fertility meditation only to find your mind uncontrollablly chanting the mantras:

“It is so unfair; why me? When will it be my turn? Will I ever have this baby?”

 

You are tempted to find a “quick fix” and scroll through pages of advice splashed across your computer and smart phone – all thanks to the new man you spend the majority of your time with: Mr Google.

 

… But he only makes you feel more confused and distraught…

 

The only quick fix you can find seems to be anti-depressant mood enhances, such as SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) which are not ideal because less that 50% of people find they work. Additionally, you want to be as healthy as possible whilst trying to conceive. Furthermore you want to optimize your egg health and don’t want to self-diagnose or self self-medicate.

 

Is this you? Do you find yourself here or some place similar?

Do you want to naturally be able to improve your mood whilst trying to conceive?

Then let’s look at new things you can add to your fertile lifestyle to help you begin to feel better.

When you feel better you have more energy and you become resilient: able to cope better when life throws you another disappointing or heart-breaking blow.

The four main feel good hormones to increase naturally are:

  1. Dopamine
  2. Endorphins
  3. Oxytocin
  4. Serotonin

Sexy beauty couple

In a nutshell, there is one thing that helps raise all four of these feel good hormones and that is “passionate sex.”

 

In addition to lusty love-making I am going to start from the bottom of the list and work my way up over a series of articles to help you maximize your mood-enhancing repertoire from other lifestyle choices.

What is serotonin and why is it good for fertility?

Serotonin is a feel good neurotransmitter it literally helps you to maintain a positive mood. Fertility is triggered by joy, for this reason you want to embrace the amount of serotonin synthetized in your body and brain.

 

Serotonin Fact ♯1

It’s believed that low serotonin levels are the main contributing factor responsible for the current world-wide depression epidemic.

 

Serotonin Boosting Foods

Contrary to ‘what seems logical’ foods that contain serotonin do not raise serotonin levels when ingested.

Serotonin Foods

For example; bananas, pineapple, kiwi fruits and tomatoes contain serotonin but eating them does not directly raise your serotonin levels because they do not cross the blood-brain barrier.

Tryptophan Foods

The pre-cursor to Serotonin is an amino acid called tryptophan but again, eating foods high in tryptophan (such as eggs, fish, chicken, turkey, chickpeas, etc.) does not directly raise your serotonin levels either. Again, this is because they do not cross the blood-brain barrier.

 

When protein and carbohydrates are eaten together not only can your gut not digest it (it can only digest one at a time) but your brain can not get the benefits of tryptophan either.

 

During her research at MIT, Dr. Judith J. Wurtman, co-author of The Serotonin Power Diet, Wurtman discovered that eating carbohdyrates separately from proteins helps the brain synthesize serotonin. Furthermore, According to Kathleen DesMaisons, Ph.D., author of Potatoes Not Prozac, the potato changes your brain chemistry. She says, “The potato creates an insulin response that affects the movement of the amino acid tryptophan from your blood into your brain. Your body uses tryptophan to make serotonin, the brain chemical that makes you feel mellow and happy. Serotonin also helps you to “just say no” to sweets and other things by putting the brakes on your impulsivity.”

 

Craving sweets and sugary carbohydrates is the first sign that your dopamine levels have dropped and for women this is commonly triggered by stress.

 

What is the solution?

These aformentioned doctors believe eating a stand-alone potato can help. It is best to top your potato with turmeric or fermented foods such as kimchi or raw sour kraut as well as good quality virgin cold-pressed organic olive oil. Each one of these ingredients can help increase your serotonin levels.

 

Other organic foods for boosting serotonin whilst trying to conceive:

  1. Dark chocolate (Caco nibs)
  2. Sweet potatoes
  3. Root vegetables
  4. Fruit
  5. Short grain brown rice
  6. Oatmeal (gluten free oats) – did you know all oats are gluten free and what makes them ‘glutenous’ is the fact they are rolled in flour whilst being processed.

Organic supplements that are safe for boosting serotonin whilst trying to conceive:

 

Curcumin (from turmeric, also helps reduce inflammation)

  • Available in supermarkets and healthfood stores

 

Kefir (Either water kefir, coconut kefir or raw organic cow’s milk kefir which helps to improve digestive function too)

  • Available in healthfood stores

 

Digestive Herb Mix – (a chewable blend of fennel seeds, peppermint, liquorice, jaggery, dhania dal, ajwain, whole flax seeds, hari patti, sesame seeds)

  • Available in my shop for £17.99 (100g)

 

Klammath Blue-green Algae (A slow release energy source with an accumulative effect – meaning it builds up in the body over time and has the cleanest and potent forms of B12 and omegas. It also has the ability to penetrate the blood brain barrier)

  • Available in my shop for £42.00 (130 vegan capsules)

 

Marine Phytoplankton (An instant release energy source that has the cleanest and richest source of combined B12 and omegas as well as being able to penetrate the blood brain barrier)

  • Available in my shop for £36.00 (130 vegan capsules)

 

Vitamin D3 (There are different forms of Vitamin D. D3 is best for fertility. Vitamin D3 is best form of the vitamin. Ensure that you also have taken Vitamin A and K to balance the Vitamin D – you will be if you are taking the fertility honey and/or the JuicePlus+ capsules).

  • Available in my shop for £16.99 (60 capsules)

 

 

Serotonin Fact ♯2

According to the Scientific American, 95% of serotonin resides in your digestive tract not your brain! (Read more here – https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/gut-second-brain/)

 

This is why the emphasis on gut health is important (and the consumption of pre and pro-biotics). It has been proven that if you do not have enough ‘good bacteria’ in your digestive tract it can negatively impact your brain health resulting in lowered serotonin levels and causing depression.

Digestive Health

What can upset your good bacteria?

 

Top 8 intestinal flora destroyers

 

  1. Antibiotics
  2. Anti-bacterial cleaners and hand soaps/body washes
  3. Artificial sweeteners
  4. Inflammation (which is why I recommend turmeric and JuicePlus+ capsules for they reduce inflammation)
  5. Non-organic food because commercially grown food has been sprayed with: herbicides; fungicides; pesticides which destroy gut health
  6. Sugar
  7. Stress (which inhibits the function of the digestive system)
  8. Tap water (if you only use a Brita filter it won’t get rid of the chlorine which is what destroys the good bacteria). Read more about tap water here

 

 

Other lifestyle choices to proven to help enhance serotonin levels:

 

  • Eat within an hour of waking
  • Sleep between 10:00pm – 6:00am in a pitch black room
  • Exercise for 20 – 30 minutes per day with a raised heart rate
  • Fertility Meditation
  • Fertility Mind-mastery to create the much needed positive mind-set that ‘significantly boosts serotonin levels’ stated Healthline, see article here
  • Fertility Yoga
  • Reduce time using dirty technology (our technology emits electro-magnetic frequencies which disrupt our natural rhythms and are linked to raised cortisol levels)
  • Have lots of passionate sex (as mentioned earlier)
  • Stress management techniques
  • Sunshine (light therapy) is renowned for remedying depression. Research that shows a clear link between light and serotonin was published on PubMed called ‘Bright light exposure during acute tryptophan depletion prevents a lowering of mood in mildly seasonal women.’

Sound familiar?

If you are one of the many women on my 90 Day Fast Track to Fertility Fertile Lifestyle Online Course then will will sound familiar to you. (Namely the Mood and Food section and Managing Moods Module; Mind-Mastery Module; Fertility Fit and Chakra Yoga Video on Demand). The 6 pillar epigenetics protocol (as illustrated below) will inevitably help you to balance your mood, your hormones and your feel-good neurotransmitters!

Stress - business woman running late with clock under her arm. Business concept photo with young businesswoman in a hurry running against time. Caucasian / Chinese Asian isolated on white background in full length.

Sages say “if you dont have time to meditate then meditate for an hour!”

Honestly, meditation is that important that modern day experts say “if you have not got time to meditate, you do not have a life.”

However, as a meditation teacher since 2003, I want to share some meditation wisdom with you.

There’s a meditation called Candle Gazing you can do:

  1. It’s effective in only 5 minutes (longer if you can afford the time!)
  2. It does not require audio guidance
  3. It’s easy, anyone can do it
  4. It’s powerfully healing
  5. It helps to rid the mind and body of stress

Ready to learn how?

Watch this video below, enjoy!

I promise you, this is one of the easiest and most effective meditations that you can do when you “don’t have time to meditate.”

All you need is a candle!

However, don’t buy a toxic candle, by a natural soy or beeswax candle. Soy Candles

You can by fertility enhancing candles
