How pH balance influences fertility
For many couples who are waiting to say we have a surprise , guess what, having a baby is a
lifetime dream. Achieving this dream happens naturally most of the time, however
sometimes, there are situations where a little awareness of our bodies and diet can help.
The proverbial saying 'You are what you eat' is the notion that to be fit and healthy, you
need to eat good food. Same holds good for your fertility health, especially for maintaining
vaginal pH balance.
Here is an excerpt from a research paper which explains and demonstrates the relationship
with pH balance and fertility.
The optimal vaginal pH to maintain sperm viability and motility ranges from 7.0 to 8.5. In
fact, a reduction in sperm motility is seen at vaginal pH of less than 6.0. The alkaline pH of
semen protects sperm temporarily. However, reduction in semen volume and/or decreased
alkaline seminal vesicular secretion may negatively impact fertility since buffering capacity
of semen against vaginal acidity becomes inadequate.
The cervix generally functions as an effective barrier to sperm; an adequate production of
cervical mucus is essential to transport sperm from the vagina to the uterine cavity.
Acupuncture is an essential part of restoring this balance. Get a booster Acupuncture
treatment and start your alkaline diet , during ovulation for best results.
Thus TCM identifies an important indicator for a human body’s health: the human blood pH
value, which, under normal conditions, ranges from 7.34539 to 7.45461. Outside this range
(acid: Yin condition; alkaline: Yang condition), disease appears. Almost always, when there
is virtual disease, the condition of human blood pH value is a Yin condition; when there is
real disease, the condition of human blood pH value is a Yang condition.
There are many wonderful alkaline foods taken regularly, which have the potential to
increase the chances of conception.
