Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes of infertility?

Inability to get pregnant can be rooted in nutritional deficiencies. If you consume enough of certain nutrients in your diet (not from synthetic sources) you can greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Cause #1: Nutritional deficiencies

There are certain nutrients that are needed for the female body to be able to get pregnant. Being deficient in those or consuming them from synthetic supplements can be a great barrier to your fertility.

Fat-soluble vitamins, specifically vitamins A, D and E, are very important for being able to get pregnant. These are the vitamins that can go through the fat layer of the cell and can go right into the DNA to start improving your health.

Trace minerals are the minerals that are needed in your body in very small amounts. Specifically, zinc and iodine can cause infertility if you are deficient in them.

If you are deficient in some of these nutrients, it can cause being infertile.


  • Never consume prenatal synthetic vitamins

  • Fat-soluble vitamins:

    • cod liver oil (vitamins A, E and D)

    • pasture-raised eggs (vitamin A)

    • grass-fed cheese and butter (vitamin A)

    • organ meats (vitamins A, E and D)

    • pasture-raised eggs (vitamin A)

    • more seeds and nuts (vitamin E)

    • for vitamin D take long walks outside in the sun (at least 45 minutes)

  • Trace minerals:

    • seaweed and sea vegetables (iodine)

    • sea kelp (iodine)

    • beef (zinc)

    • seeds (zinc)

    • shrimp (zinc)

    • oysters (zinc).

Once you get pregnant continue with the above but make sure that after the birth of your child you:

  • breast feed

  • don’t give juice in a bottle to a baby as it will destroy the teeth
