I wonder if it is a moral issue let to assist physicians when trying to be a mother. last week we had week the most important of our lives, the day of the mother, and I can’t getout of my mind the conversation I had with a friend, who already is 40 about what she feltwhen the doctor commented she was already ”old”, that their eggs were “getting old” in one way or another, and that women have an expiration date.
I am very natural and organic, but that sounded very strong, but I wonder every day what mothers think that despite all the difficulties have been mothers.
If you have children and want to take care both before and during there is a list of foodsand vitamins that can help fertility … beyond the faith.
1. Vitamins and minerals: important for the whole period of development of the baby and a great way to get them is through fruits and vegetables. But they also have micronutrients and antioxidants that inhibit the action of negative molecules that enter the body and damage the reproductive system and, of course, eggs.
2. Fruits and vegetables in bright colors like red, green and yellow: remember that thestronger the color, contains more nutrients and more positive results in preparation forthe arrival of your baby. You can get the purpose of eating two fruits a day and about three cups of vegetables.
Furthermore, to avoid constipation, you should accompany fruits and vegetables with atleast eight glasses of water a day.
3. Fiber: To avoid digestive problems and to support the conception and fetal development,can consume fiber. Cereals, artichokes, spinach, beets, plums, almonds and avocadosoffer a high fiber content that will help you avoid also the risk of developing polycystic ovary.
4. Vitamins: Vitamin A, C and E and zinc and manganese mainly act as antioxidants.Although the body produces naturally, are inadequate during pregnancy, so it’s very positive that consume oranges, melons, kiwis, tomatoes, garlic, nuts and cauliflower.
The B vitamins are important for fertilization, the arrival of the egg to the uterus and thebaby’s development. These are dissolved in water and easily lost, in addition, some features of modern lifestyle such as stress and alcohol consumption, accelerate this process.
I share with you several tips for varicose veins.
Keep your legs up: rest them on something that is above your hips so that blood can return to the heart, this will help blood not to accumulate in varicose veins. For example, you can sit and put the legs on a high stool, or stretch your legs up leaning on the headboard of your bed.
Massage your legs: Elevate your feet and massage from the ankle to the top, gently. Not overdo it with force, the idea is to massage gently, not cause you more pain or bruising.
Tilt your bed: Place pillows at the foot of your bed to sleep with the legs raised, so varicose relieve them at bedtime.
Apply compresses: Place on varicose veins compresses sandwiching a cold temperature as hot as other resist, and for 10 minutes and ending with the cold compress.
Exercise: The accumulation of blood in the veins of the legs is enhanced if you stay a long time standing or sitting, walking a little, even hourly, will help to empty the veins and prevent varicose veins, also will improve the blood circulation and also improve your fitness.
