I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Trying to Conceive?

Tips to maximize fertility.

Wanting to add to your family? Wonderful! Children are a gift and every life is precious. For some, getting pregnant is quick and easy. For others, it can take months or years of charting cycles and undergoing various medical procedures to finally conceive. In the event you’re having a hard time conceiving, don’t give up hope. To speed the process up, you’ll want to keep in mind some dos and don’ts.

Here’s what women should and shouldn’t do to help boost their fertility.

Take Care of Your Body

The first step to increasing your likelihood of becoming pregnant is taking care of your body by making healthy lifestyle choices. Eat a well-balanced nutritious diet with recommended daily amounts of iron, protein, vitamin C, and zinc. A deficiency in these vitamins and minerals may cause long menstrual cycles, infrequent ovulation, and an increased risk for miscarriage.

For added insurance, it’s a good idea to take a daily multivitamin to ensure you’re getting enough of these vital nutrients. Eat a protein-rich diet including foods such as lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, low-fat dairy, tofu and beans.

Maintaining a healthy weight is also important for fertility. Obesity poses a host of health risks but also lowers your chance of conceiving. Excess body fat messes with your hormones, causing your cycle to be irregular and ovulation to occur less frequently. On the other hand, being underweight can also affect your hormones. Being too thin may cause your hormone levels to be too low to ovulate each month. Low hormone levels may also lead to early miscarriage.

Exercise is a great way to stay fit and maintain a healthy weight. Avoid strenuous exercise (long-distance running or competitive sports) when attempting to get pregnant, as over-exercising affects ovulation and increases your risk of miscarriage.

Track Your Cycle

A woman’s cycle normally lasts between 25 and 35 days. The longer your cycle, the less frequent your ovulation. If you want to conceive, it helps to find the time of the month when you’re most fertile. This window of time is the day you ovulate and the few days before. To help determine when you’re ovulating, try using an ovulation test kit, track your basal temperature, or notice changes in your cervical mucus.

This may be a no-brainer, but it’s during this window of time that you need to have sex. Aim for once a day. There’s no such thing as too much if you want to conceive. Keep in mind that while vaginal lubricants may make it easier to have frequent intercourse, these lubricants will hinder your fertility.

Quit Smoking

If you smoke and are having trouble conceiving, don’t be surprised. The toxins in cigarettes damage a woman’s eggs and reduce cervical mucus, making fertilization and implantation difficult. If you do manage to get pregnant, smoking increases your risk of miscarriage and can lead to serious birth defects. Stopping before you get pregnant can help you get pregnant and avoid an array of potential health issues with baby.

Reduce Stress

Like intense exercise, psychological stress can interfere with your hormone levels, making it more difficult to conceive. If you’re stressed out from work, relationships, or from trying to conceive, learn to manage your stress through relaxation, lifestyle changes, or professional counseling.

Avoid Alcohol, Limit Caffeine

Both alcohol and caffeine negatively affect your chances of conceiving and carrying a pregnancy to term. Alcohol affects your estrogen levels, making it less likely for an egg to implant. Caffeine increases your risk of miscarriage.

It Takes Two

Your ability to conceive doesn’t all depend on you. Your husband plays an important role as well. Obesity, a poor diet, heavy drinking, and smoking all contribute to a low sperm count, damaged sperm, or weak sperm, all of which negatively affect your chances of becoming pregnant. It’s important for a man to get adequate amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, and selenium in order to make healthy sperm.

If you’ve been trying to conceive for a year or if you’ve had multiple miscarriages, seek medical assistance. Treatment is available. With the right steps, you may find yourself a new mother in no time!
