What goes inside the mother’s body has a direct impact on the baby growing inside her. A healthy and balanced diet is crucial not only for expecting mothers but also for women who are wishing to start a family as this helps to boost the chances of conceiving by enhancing fertility. Multiple unsuccessful attempts at conceiving can be quite overwhelming and around 20 to 25 couples have to face this problem. Undergoing tests, follicular scans, ovulation inductions, ultrasounds and IVF procedures can drain you emotionally and mentally. At Zeeva, we believe that a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet not only complement natural and modern medicine but also increase their effectiveness.
When you do not eat properly, it is very likely to affect the body’s metabolism. Lack of nutrients can affect your menstruation cycle, making it difficult to track your ovulation. Unhealthy eating habits can also trigger problems like obesity and PCOS which are the leading causes of female infertility. Even in the case of males, unhealthy dietary habits can interfere with the chances of conceiving by drastically impacting sperm quality. The direct correlation between a person’s diet and its impact on his/her hormones and reproductive organs has been established scientifically.
Our experts suggest that achieving and maintaining a healthy BMI (body mass index) can alleviate the chances of conception. Women with a BMI of 25 or greater are recommended to lose weight for successful conception whereas those below having a BMI of 18.5 or below need to increase their calorie intake and gain weight as being underweight can affect the ovulation cycle. Losing weight does not mean that you have to go for fad diets. In fact, doing so is going to do you no less harm than being overweight. At Zeeva, we offer personalized diet plans to suit the specific needs of your body to make sure that your health is not being compromised at any point.
