How to Increase Your IVF Success Rate Naturally
Your Guide to Increasing Your IVF Success Rate...
To increase your IVF success naturally, I have written this brief guide too help you. This guide will give you methods which have undergone study and have proven, at least in some cases, to help increase IVF success rate naturally, as well as improving egg health.
It must be noted before we get too deeply into the guide here that none of the supplements which are mentioned here in this guide should be taken once you begin IVF medications. You should complete the program of supplements described here before you begin these medications. The ideal situation here is to take these supplements for three months prior to beginning IVF medications in tandem with the fertility diet.
To increase your IVF success rate, follow this three step strategy.

Step One - Cleanse
To increase IVF success naturally, you need to lay the groundwork for a successful conception. To a large extent, the success of a IVF procedure depends on healthy eggs and proper implantation of the embryo. However, you need to keep this in mind – the life cycle of your eggs is about 90 days. During this time, the health of your eggs can be affected by factors including your diet, your stress level and your circulation. To ensure good egg health, you should begin preparing yourself 90 days ahead of time.
The first step is to clear out all of the toxins and hormones before adding good nutrition and supplements. The first step includes:
A fertility cleanse will clear out excess hormones and toxins from your liver. This cleans will also remove stagnant blood and old tissue from your uterus. You should begin this cleanse the day after your period ends.

Step Two - Nourish
After completing the cleanse, you will focus on providing your eggs with the nourishment which they need and on preparing your uterine lining for implantation. These are two things which we can have a lot of control over. This step is done through diet in conjunction with herbs and other nutritional supplements.
The Fertility Diet
A few months before your IVF, begin eating a fertility diet. Getting nutrient dense foods is vital to producing healthy eggs and promoting implantation of the embryo
Take a Multivitamin
A prenatal multivitamin can be a great help in getting you the nutrition you need for egg health and preparing the lining of your uterus. My favorite is Mega Food’s 100% whole food Baby and Me multivitamin. A synthetic multivitamin just can’t offer you all of the benefits that this vitamin does.
Use Supporting supplements
• COQ10- CoQ10 helps to keep the eggs integrity by protecting them from free radicals. Coq10 is best taken for two to three months before having IVF.
• L-arginine - L-arginine is an amino acid which has shown promise in increasing ovarian response, endometrial receptivity, and pregnancy rates in IVF patients who supplemented in large doses (16 grams) of L-arginine. (Published in Human Reproduction 1999). L-arginine

Use Fertility Superfoods
These are extremely nutrient dense foods which offer great benefits to you each time they are ingested. Personally, I favor putting all of these fertility superfoods into a "fertility smoothie".
Maca is a nutritional powerhouse which helps you to achieve proper hormonal balance by nourishing your endocrine system, although it does not contain any hormones itself. Hormonal balance is essential for a successful IVF, since this makes for healthier eggs.
• Royal jelly/propolis
These superfoods increase the quality and quantity of eggs. Royal jelly is the food produced by bees which turns an ordinary bee into a queen, capable of producing as many as 2,000 eggs per day. You should take this supplement for at least two months before beginning IVF procedures.
Royal jelly is the hormonal stimulant used by queen bees to ensure plenty of offspring. You should take this supplement daily in order to achieve the best results. However, if you are, or think that you may be allergic to bees, stay away from this and all other bee products.
This nutrient dense algae contains a wealth of minerals, antioxidants and protein which feeds your eggs with the nutrients they need and alkalinizes your body. Take this supplement daily, one tsp.
Step Three - Nurture
The last part of this program to increase IVF success is to use two therapies which are proven to help the success rate of IVF. These are used right before beginning the procedure and immediately after beginning.Acupuncture and IVFRecent studies have show that women who undergo acupuncture within one day after embryo transfer increase the rate of a successful implantation by as much as 65% compared to those who either did not undergo acupuncture or who had a “fake acupuncture” procedure performed.To further increase your chances of success, get in touch with your acupuncturist long before your IVF procedure to make sure that they will be available, since timing is vital for this procedure.HypnosisHypnosis has also been shown to be useful in increasing IVF success rates. In one study, women who underwent hypnosis had twice the success rate of women who did not employ hypnosis.Hypnosis is one of the easiest things which you can use to prepare for your IVF. Before, during and after the IVF procedure are all times when you can benefit from a hypnosis procedure and there are hypnosis CDs which are made specifically for IVF purposes. You can use these CDs on a daily basis before and after your procedure, as well as during. Hypnosis will also produce a calming effect, helpful during the stress of preparing for an IVF procedure.
