Infertility

According to the government statastics ,6.7 million women and two million married couples are infertile

, 35 percent of men are estimated to be sub –fertile and two percent of men are totally fertile.

In 1968 there were only 600, 000 office visits for infertility compared to the millions who fill up OB/GYN

Waiting rooms today.

Unfortunately conventional medicine has little to offer in the area of infertility other than diagnostic test, fertility drugs, and IVF ( in vitro fertilization) that is mostly geared towards the female.

They chalk the increase in infertility numbers up to better diagnostics , better trained or specialized, physicians, and media publicity from new treatments.

Because of failure to acknowledge this growing epidemic, little government funded research has been done into the actual cause of infertility-maybe the findings would be controversial and go against what the drug industry promotes ,or maybe because conventional medicine focuses on disease symptomology and not underlying causes.

The natural health community attributes  40 percent  of infertility problems to men,40 percent to women and about n20 percent to unknown origin.

Genetically modified foods which lack the nutrients  necessary for infertility( because they are infertile themselves)

Very few ,if any of hthe above things on these list are addressed when people sit down with a doctor to discuss infertility problems-but mabe it should

There are many natural remedies for improving fertility but the most effective route is to first remove the things that could be impeding conception,avoid genetically modified foods for trying to conceive andconsume a healthy diet rich in nutrients
