Research has shown up to a third of couples struggle to conceive - so what can people do to increase their fertility?

Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston gives her advice on the best foods to help to make you fertile.

1. Eat organic - We don't yet know what the impact may be of untested combinations of pesticides and food additives on fertility.

2. Go up-to-8-a-day - Five handfuls of veg and three pieces of fruit a day in a variety of colors such as red, purple, orange and dark green help to top up antioxidant levels which may help protect the genetic material in the egg and sperm.

3. Phytoestrogens for hormone balance - These plant-based hormone balancers help to prevent imbalances between estrogen and progesterone which may lead to fertility problems and early miscarriage.

4. Cut out the fertility hinderers - Two of the most important things to remove from your diet are alcohol and caffeine.

5. Get prepared - It's also a good idea to reduce the foods and drinks you can't eat during pregnancy before you fall pregnant so you are fully prepared and don't need to worry if you had something early on which is better avoided.

6. Essential fats - These fats support male and female fertility and hormonal balance and also help the baby's brain, nervous system and eyes to develop once pregnant.

7. Algae - Algae is a true super-food as it contains a vast array of nutrients, essential fats and amino acids in a totally natural and easy to absorb form.

-- Women who are trying to conceive will find a holistic approach in this hands-on manual.

Step-by-step guidelines help implement a three-part program — of yoga, hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory nutrition, and stress-reduction techniques — to cleanse the body, mind, and spirit in preparation for pregnancy.

In addition, this program draws on cleansing methods from traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda and has been specifically designed for women who are trying naturally or with assisted-reproduction plans.

Also based on new clinical research that suggests that gut health, chronic inflammation, and environmental toxins may be root causes of infertility, this important book offers all women a natural, holistic approach to readying the womb for a child.

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.
