Optimizing Your Fertility in the Winter Season

Winter is a time of stillness and deep introspection. With the bare trees and colder weather, we are asked to go within and build up our reserves for a re-emergence come spring.  Stress, overactivity, toxins and noise increase cortisol levels, eliciting the stress response and tax our reserves.  To attune with the winter season, find ways to hibernate and nurture your deepest yin energies.

Tips to Support Fertility in the Winter

1. Sleep Deeply: Our body’s circadian rhythm is governed by the cycles of light and dark, which regulate sleep, mood and metabolism. Adequate melatonin production supports healthy ovulation. Aim for more sleep in the winter, avoid the blue light from screens before bed which disrupts melatonin production.  Do your best to go to bed earlier (at least by 11pm).

2. Choose warming nutrition rich foods: Enjoy foods slowly simmered in water, like soups and stews, that support both fertility and digestion. Add small pieces of seaweed like kombu and wakame to soak up the minerals and build your inner reserves.

3. Sea salt foot soaks: In Chinese Medicine, salt is the corresponding flavor and water is the corresponding element to the winter season and fertility. For deep relaxation, gently detoxification and grounding at the end of your day unwind with a warm candlelit soak.

4. Eat more root vegetables: As Paul Pitchford says in Healing with Whole Foods: root vegetables “grow in cold climates and contain minerals and other elements that make it possible to survive in harsh weather and under snow. When eating, we take on their qualities and build resistance to cool weather and disease.” 

5. Choose black and blue foods: In Chinese Medicine, the corresponding colors of the water element and fertility are black and blue. Adding foods like black beans, black sesame seeds, blueberries and blackberries can support kidney, reproductive and adrenal health.

6. Sip tea: The ritual of drinking tea is calming and regenerating. They are also a great way to warm up on the cold winter days. Choose teas like our organic fertility tea, with herbs to support conception.
