Reproductive Health Information - Miscarriage Diet
Dietary suggestion for prevention of miscarriage and recurrent early pregnancy loss
At one time or another, women trying to conceive will understand the importance of optimal blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. Blood brings food and oxygen to your eggs, uterine lining, and developing embryo.
Stress, lack of exercise, not enough rest, lack of joy, and certain foods all can inhibit blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. This will ultimately lead to periods with clotted blood. Clotted menstrual blood is nothing more than uterine lining that is necrotic, or dead, due to lack of food and oxygen supply. If a new embryo tries to implant into uterine lining that is not living, the chances of its survival are drastically reduced. So treatment to reduce and eliminate clots in menstrual blood is a very common approach to improving fertility and reducing chances of miscarriage.
Here are a few Dietary principles you can implement when you are bleeding to help eliminate menstrual blood clots, increase your fertility, and reduce the chances of miscarriage;
1. avoid sour food when bleeding (yogurt, vinegar, pickles, grapefruit, currants, and green apples.
2. eat more blood nourishing foods when bleeding such as eggs, carrots, spinach, dates, & goji berries.
3. consume more blood invigorating foods when bleeding such as fish, ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric.
