Paradoxically,we live in the most fertile and infertile of times.Worldwide the population climbs alarmingly,while at the same time,many of us seem unable to conceive.While Mother Earth strains to sustain an ever-growing population,loving couples struggle with the heartbreak,despair,and feelings of physical inadequacy,that accompany infertility.

Not just Humans struggle with this problem.Evidence points to an increasing number of reproductive abnormalities among Fish,Frogs,Alligators,and other Animals.Pollution is partly to blame;environmental contaminants have been linked to delayed fertility among wild Birds and animals in the Great Lakes basin.At the same time dozens of studies seem to indicate that male sperm counts,(among Adults),have dropped MORE THAN 50% BETWEEN 1938 and 1990.

Environmental Pollution is a broad category encompassing:Pesticides,Plastics,Food Wraps,and Chemicals known as "Hormone Mimics".All of these substances appear to hinder the body's natural reproductive hormones."The McMaster Institute of Environment and Health's Reproduction Environmental" research team reported that couples took longer to conceive when frequently exposed to Common Chemicals,like Household Cleaners and Solvents,Paints and Gasoline.

According to researcher,Edmund R.Burke,of Colorado,even one caffinated soft drink,coffee,or tea a day,can diminish conception ability as much as 50% Caffeine stimulates production of natural chemicals in the body that slow conception.

So,limit your exposure to damaging chemicals and pollutants.Purchase natural products for cleaning and bathing.A few examples are:Vinegar,Lemon,Tea Tree Oil,or Lavendar Oil.

Quit smoking,and cut way back or avoid altogether,caffeine.Eat healthy foods like Organic Fruits and Vegtables,Juices,and Milk.Add fiber- rich ,low- fat Grains,(for instance,Wheat bread,instead of White;Wheat Flour,instead of White), and Vegies to your diet.Reduce consumption of,(or do away with altogether), fatty,cholesterol-laden Meats and Dairy products,(some milk or cheese is ok,once or twice a week).In addition to a Vegetarian diet,(or a near- vegetarian diet), controlling our weight,protecting our hearts,and giving us an abundance of cancer-fighting antioxidents,now the POWER OF PLANTS INCLUDES YET ANOTHER PROFOUND ADVANTAGE:IT ENCOURAGES FERTILITY.

If you are trying to get pregnant,MODERATE YOUR WEIGHT.Both OVERWEIGHT and UNDERWEIGHT women experience trouble conceiving.MEN too,must maintain at least a MINIMAL level of body fat to produce "Healthy" levels of sperm.To reproduce,Men and Women, must store a minimum amount of body weight.Women with a "BODY MASS INDEX" below 17, often slow down their cycle or stop menstruating altogether.Overweight women,with a "BODY MASS INDEX" of 27 or more,often have trouble with ovulation.(To find out more on this subject,please refer to my "Overweight" page).

When researchers examined over 3,500 women with ovulatory infertility problems,at fertility clinics in Australia,they concluded that this form of infertility is Highest in Obese and Severely Underweight women,with even Moderately Overweight or Underweight women also being at risk.

Nutritional supplements can play a sigificant role in increasing your chances to conceive.Folic Acid may boost fertliity,as may Vitamin C, Paba,(a B-complex vitamin),Vit.B-6, Zinc,and Iron.In one study done by Alan R. Gaby,MD,and Jonathan V. Wright,MD,seven previously infertile women conceived within 28 weeks after starting an Iron and Vit.C program.In some men,infertility results from a tendency of sperm cells to clump together.A daily Vit.C supplement reduces clumping and protects sperm, from injury caused by toxins,like cigarette smoke. L-carnitine(an amino acid),and Zinc also play a major role in the production and function of sperm.

Some possible Alternative Treatments or Herbs that boost female fertliity are:"Maca-Maca" (and /or) "Chasteberry".Women should be taking the pills or drinking the tea,atleast two to three times a day.An IMPORTANT POINT to REMEMBER is that if your body is UNHEALTHY in some way,taking a "FERTILITY HERB" ,will do LITTLE or NO GOOD.

CHICAGO (AP)
- Frequent mountain-biking may reduce fertility in men, according to a small Austrian study that adds fodder to a debate over cycling and male sexual function.

The research suggests frequent jolts and vibration caused by biking over rough terrain may cause abnormalities, including small scars within the scrotum and impaired sperm production.

The abnormalities were found in professional mountain bikers and other "extreme" bikers who logged at least 3,000 miles yearly — or an average of more than two hours a day, six days a week.

Dr. Ferdinand Frauscher, a urology-radiology specialist at University Hospital in Innsbruck, Austria, said he studied about 55 avid mountain bikers and found nearly 90 percent had low sperm counts and scrotal abnormalities.

Only 26 percent of the 35 non-bikers he studied had similar damage, according to research presented at this week's annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.

Whether the abnormalities were severe enough to make fathering a child difficult is uncertain, though some of the bikers studied had already experienced difficulty conceiving, Frauscher said.

Participants were aged 17 to 44.
His study looked at fertility rather than impotence, which was linked to recreational cycling in research heavily publicized in 1997. The earlier findings, by Boston University impotence specialist Dr. Irwin Goldstein, were construed by many cycling aficionados to suggest that men should avoid any cycling sports.

Some doctors thought Goldstein's findings were overstated, but the issue has prompted a mini-industry of bicycle seats designed to avoid the compression of penile arteries that Goldstein said occurs during cycling.

Such problems may occur on narrow, racing-type seats, Frauscher said. Some newer, wider designs feature holes or gaps to avoid pressure, but these likely would have no effect on the scrotal damage found in the Austrian study, which may be caused by jolting over rough terrain rather than artery compression, Frauscher said.

Frauscher said men shouldn't avoid mountain biking because of the study, but should perhaps consider investing in bikes with shock absorbers or suspension systems designed to reduce the jolting.
