Tea Drinking

So far I have been to 3 acupuncture sessions. I am trying have hard to stick to the NO cold food or drinks that she suggested. It is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I have been drinking a lot of tea lately… Since that is my main beverage is tea I thought that there might be tea that helps promote fertility. Browsing google I found FertiliTea. After reading dozens of reviews and articles I figured I would give it a try.

“FertiliTea is the natural, healthful – and delicious – herbal tea designed to support the entire reproductive system and help optimize your chances of conceiving. Designed by fertility expert Amos Grunebaum, MD, FertiliTea is the only herbal tea that offers a complete spectrum of carefully selected fertility-enhancing ingredients.

How Does FertiliTea Support Reproductive Health?

Chasteberry (Vitex) stimulates the hormones involved in ovulation and restores female hormonal balance. It’s useful in normalizing pituitary gland function and the balance of progesterone and estrogen levels. Vitex is used as an herbal treatment for infertility and is especially helpful for women with irregular cycles, ovulate issues, or a short luteal phase (a shortened second half of the menstrual cycle). The effectiveness of Vitex increases over time with continued use.

Red Raspberry Leaf is highly regarded for its ability to tone the uterus and muscles of the pelvic region. A highly nutritive ingredient, Red Raspberry is a powerful fertility-promoting herb, especially when used in combination with Peppermint.

Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant that enhances reproductive health by repairing the oxidative damage that occurs naturally as the result of environmental toxins and aging. A study from the American Journal of Public Health found that drinking 1/2 cup or more of green tea daily doubled the odds of conception per cycle. Due to the inclusion of Green Tea, there is a very slight touch of caffeine (equal to just 1/25th a cup of coffee).

Ladies Mantle is a “tonic” (tones and brings health) herb that is useful in regulating a woman’s monthly cycle. It also exerts a toning effect on the cervix.

Nettle Leaf contains a wide spectrum of vitamins and minerals that are critical to good reproductive health, including Vitamins A, C, D, K, Potassium, Phosphorous, Iron, and Sulfur. Nettle Leaf also contains Calcium – a mineral that affects a woman’s ability to conceive and maintain pregnancy.

Peppermint Leaf gives FertiliTea a delicious flavor & has the added benefit of serving as a sexual stimulant!”



Had my first acupuncture appointment yesterday. Not as bad as I thought it would be! They suggested that I come in 1-2 times a week for at least a month to get the best results. So this is where we are starting… I am going to try to get in there as frequently as possible!

She did have a few tips that I never thought of…

1. Do not drink cold beverages – she explained as, just like in the winter when things freeze and slows things down, cold beverages slow down the flow in your body.

2. Try to keep your lower back warm – almost as in the answer as above, to keep the blood flowing properly in that area will help.

She had other tips but these were the ones that I found most interesting and had never heard before. 

First Acupuncture!

Finally was able to schedule my first acupuncture session. I have been wanting to do this for a while… In a previous post I talked about Acupuncture for Fertility, and I am all about giving new things a try. You never  know what will help.

I am very excited and nervous all at once. I am not exactly sure what to expect, but I am going in open minded and ready to take in the whole experience. Only wish my husband wasn’t deathly scared of needles so he could be there by my side.
