Natural Ways to Enhance Fertility

  • Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park - Pfeiffer Room 1000 East Beltline Avenue Northeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49525 United States (map)


During this session, we looked at some of the most common threats to fertility, how to prepare your body for pregnancy, and will lay out a plan for health that you can begin two years before conception.

Threats to Fertility:
> Inadequate nutrition
> Toxic burden on our body
> Poor sleep leading to inadequate healing
> Physical de-conditioning
> Untreated food sensitivities leading to autoimmune reactions later in life

Platform for Health
> Nutritional Essentials
> Balance of essential fatty acids, enzymes, fiber, minerals, the right supplements, spices and herbs that heal.
