There is a very interesting article in the latest (October 2013) 'What Doctor's Don't tell you' about brave Dr Jayne Donegan, a GP that was all for vaccination (like most other doctors) in her early career but changed her mind when she started to do her own research into vaccines. Her career was almost ruined when she discovered that doctors are being misled by the government about their safety and effectiveness.
Dr Jayne Donegan believes that her profession is being deliberately misled by the UK's department of health (DoH) which, in its 'Green Book' on vaccinations issued to all doctors, is deliberately massaging the data to make vaccines seem more effective and safe than they actually are. She was for this reason charged by her own governing body, the General Medical Council (GMC), of serious professional misconduct of bringing the profession into disrepute. The hearing was the result of the GMC charging her directly although, in the vast majority of cases it only acts when the public has filed complaint. Remarkably, the GMC panel found her not guilty and agreeing in their findings that she had been objective, independent and unbiased in her research conclusions. Which kind of suggest that they are agreeing with what she is saying.
1. Zink - is Absolutely vital for reproductive health. It affects every part of the female cycle. From the desire for sex and adequate levels of hormones that stimulate the egg to grow to preventing early pregnancy losses. Zink is also vital for men as it improves the quality of the sperm. Zink can be found in good quality meat, fish, oysters, eggs, nuts, ginger root, pumpkin seeds and green leafy vegetables.
2. B6 - Works together in synergy with zinc. You will find B6 in bananas, broccoli and watercress.
3. Good fats - Or your omega 3 (oily fish, flax and chia seeds) and omega 6 (raw and unsalted nuts and seeds) are needed for the sex hormones to function correctly. A deficiency here is likely to affect your menstrual cycle and therefore your fertility.
4. Antioxidants - To keep your body young and healthy. They are especially good for older women trying to conceive and for women living in cities because of the pollution. Examples of antioxidants are your vitamin A, C and E, Selenium and zinc. Make sure you have a diet high in colorful raw fruit and vegetables for you anitoxidants.
5. Folic Acid - Is important because it lowers a naturally existing protein called homocysteine in your blood. If your homocysteine is too high it can increase the risk of miscarriages and also your baby’s health is in danger as it contributes to defects such as spina bifida. Folic Acid is also involved very much in fertility. Folic Acid is found in all green leafy vegetables. Some midwifes suggest you take folic acid as a supplement 3 months before you conceive.
