The Link Between ‘A Leaky Gut’ and Trying to Conceive

Updated: Nov 6, 2020

Many people do not understand how our gastrointestinal health can affect fertility. Nor the fact that it may be the reason you’re not getting pregnant. I’m sure all of us have heard the phrase “you are what you eat” — but this does not only apply to weight or physical health, but to fertility as well.

Your gut does much more than digest and process food, it influences the health of every system of your body and the proper function of the immune system. They call the gut the second brain as it influences how we think and feel and how we synthesize and secrete hormones, the hormones essential for fertility.

A leaky gut is caused when the lining of the intestinal wall is injured, this is often due to processed food, gluten, medications, or the body becomes sensitive to certain foods, an allergy.

Signs of a leaky gut include constipation, diarrhea, IBS, abdominal bloating, heartburn, sharp abdominal pains or gas, these are signs of a leaky gut.

When we have a leaky gut “foreign” substances enter the bloodstream causing chronic irritation and inflammation and this leaves the immune system in a constant state of attack, which is not ideal when you are trying to conceive, as the body’s resources are diverted away to the acute injury, and it cannot prioritise a pregnancy.

Before specialising in fertility I mainly saw patients struggling with allergies, gut health issues, and hormonal imbalances. In fact, it is very rare that I do not see gastrointestinal issues in my fertility patients.

As a Fertility Homeopath, one of the first things I tackle is your gut health. There are a number of ways I do this, but here are the top ones!

  1. Homeopathic Detox of Antibiotics

  2. Bowel Nosodes — A Homeopathic probiotic to restore gut flora

  3. Liver Support Remedies

If you are trying to conceive and also are experiencing gut health issues then please get in touch, gut health can be resolved extremely quickly with Homeopathy.
