Shutdown/Cleansing program for fertility (infertility)

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, January 02, 2008 | 3 comments

The following is a breakdown and explanation of what we would call a - 3 month cleansing / ovulation shutdown / restoration and weight loss program.

According to Dr. John R. Lee, MD it is sometimes necessary to shut "off" the ovaries for a few months to allow the body to heal. PCOS, PCOD, short luteal phases, ovarian cysts and other similar fertility issues will impede the bodies ability to conceive.

Add to this the need for cleansing the liver and colon, according to traditional Chinese medicine and herbal medicine wisdom through the years, and you have a powerful plan to achieve fertility naturally AND safely.

We have put this together over 8 years through the study of alternative medicine and traditional folk uses of herbs and for restoration and building of the body. In this case of course we focus on finding information to support these actions in the reproductive "department." It is our wish to help you conceive, as many others have, naturally.

The purpose of this program is:
A: To cleanse the major organs of the body which in some way will affect the reproductive system and often allow the body to produce life again. This does not mean that it takes only 3 months but it is a good amount of time to make changes. We will target liver cleansing and colon cleansing for this and provide tips for healthier eating to support this effort.

B: To restore cyst covered ovaries by shutting off FSH and LH surges for these 3 months. This focuses on PCOS, PCOD and the potential for cysts due to an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone or testosterone and estrogen. The hope is to restore the ovaries, for cysts to atrophy and for proper ovulation to resume without ovarian cysts preventing it. (see disclaimer.)
Since elevated prolactin, testosterone and estrogen levels affect FSH and LH balance AND cysts, this is important for over all hormonal health NOT just for the cysts. Many say " I don't have cysts." This may be true but shutting down is a natural way to prevent conception during this time while building the body into a healthy home for your baby to come. This is not recommended as a method of birth control in the BCP [birth control pill] sense. It is also NOT natural family planning.

C: Lastly to lose weight or change eating habits and to give the body proper nutrition which again can make for a better ovulation and a healthier baby. We believe that the true love of a mother and father is to love their baby before conception even occurs; enough to give the baby a healthier start in life. The healthier the start, the better the health after birth.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
