In the previous blog I discussed the finding that cadmium is capable of destroying 25 -OH vit D3 in all chronic disease. If you google low vit D3 and infertility you will see several articles on the association of low vit D 3 and infertility. I found that to be true in patients with infertility that have had vit D 3 measurements. In overcoming infertility it is certainly a good idea to take sufficent vit D3 which might be 10,000 units a day or getting 20,000 units a day with sunshine between 11am and 1 pm from May to October in Northern lattitudes. In addtion it is important to look at stress. Stress releases free cadmium and lowers vit D3.
At the same time, it is wise to eat an anti-inflammatory diet. Wheat is pro-inflammatory but spelt, quinoa, brown rice and buckwheat are anti-inflammatory. See The Cancer Fighting Kitchen by Rebecca Katz for a great list of anti-inflammatory foods.
Lowering stress by using the mind is also a key step. A very easy book to teach you how to use your mind is Real Happiness by Sharon Salzberg. The CD in the back can be listened to and followed for 4 minutes or so after each meal.
Movement lowers stress as well and lowers cadmium. Eat-Pray-Move. It is good for more than chronic disease.
