Nutritional Therapy and Fertility

Nottingham Nutritional Therapy to Boost FertilityIt can be extremely disheartening and stressful when having problems trying to conceive. Infertility can affect both men and women, and the cause of which is currently “unknown”. According to the NHS, around 1 in 5 couples may have difficulty conceiving. This is approximately 3.5 million people in the UK alone. It is clear that the healthier you are, the stronger your chances of conceiving. Nutrition is without doubt an important factor when looking at health, fertility and conception.

The nutrients and vitamins that we absorb hugely impact on our overall health and hormone levels. Good nutrition can not just help with conception but is also vital for the health of the developing foetus.


A balanced and nutritious diet may help with:
Production and maintenance of healthy sperm and eggs. Weight management, stress, immune issues, hormone imbalance, assists in effectiveness of other treatments.


When Should I See a Result from Nutritional Therapy?

Results are largely dependent on level of commitment to altering your diet and lifestyle. However, once healthier changes have been implemented, you should start noticing and feeling the health benefits within 3 months (on average). With every couple facing fertility issues, both individuals should address their nutrition, as this largely influences the quality of sperm and egg.

How to Book with Our Nottingham Fertility Nutritionist?

Before your first consultation, you will be required to complete and return an in-depth questionnaire and 3-day food and drink diary.

Your first consultation may take up to 90 minutes, whereby the nutritional therapist will listen to your areas of concern and your symptoms, and will go through your completed questionnaire and food diary, explaining any links between any deficiencies or imbalances and your symptoms.

Your nutritional therapist will discuss alterations to your diet, and may recommend relevant nutritional supplements if necessary.

Follow-up consultations will look at how you have managed over the last 4-6 weeks after making the recommended alterations.

We will look at how you are feeling compared to your first visit, and whether any further adjustments to your diet, or any further supplementation would be beneficial.
