Consultation time: Time to consult with your ob/gyn or get a referral to a fertility center. Both you & your partner need to be evaluated. There are many possible issues & many available solutions.

Posibilities:: Libra, several factors can contribute to infertility such as daily stress and anxiety. It can also be caused by long-term injectable contraceptives or even underlying medical condition(s) that have been left untreated. You may also want to have your partner see a urologist for a sperm count. At this time, it is best for you to start by seeing an ob/gyn for further evaluation and testing.

Keep trying: Under the age f 10 it can take up to 45 times of visually presenting a food before a child will try it. After age 10 it can take up to 45 times tasting a food before we decide we like it. Keep presenting. Older children (3 and up) you can "require" to try say 3 beans or 3 small bites for a 3 yo..5 for a five year old, etc. I.

Food and play: Most children are healthier during the summer because they are out of school, relaxed, and playing. Diet is #1. Feeding as much fresh food as you can. As much organic as you can afford. Fruits and berries help boost the immune system as well. Elderberry twice a week is a good preventative. Drinking water to stay hydrated. Also have their vit d levels checked. Level of 50-70 is desired.
