I would be very interested to know your opinions on this topic. My husband and I have started the ER4YT diet and love it! I am Type O and my husband is Type A.
I am currently 31.
When I was 22, I had my first child easily, although I was horribly sick for 9 straight months.
When I was 26, it took me 7 months to get pregnant, then after threatening to miscarry, I carried our second son to term. Again, I was incredibly sick for 9 months, losing 18 lbs before gaining any. Both boys weighed over 9 lbs and I did not have gestational diabetes.
Starting at age 28, we attempted 3 more pregnancies, all resulting in unexplained miscarriage. Karotyping done on the second fetus showed no abnormalities. We have tried Clomid, which did not help and was a horrible hormonal nightmare.. We had given up, until it occurred to me to pursue the role of nutrition and infertility (secondary in our case.)
I know I should have thought of this sooner, but there's no time like the present. I previously was a junk food junkie, consuming lots of caffeine and sugar, potatoes, corn, wheat, etc. Basically, all poison foods for Type O's.
Do any of you think that my diet contributed to my loss of fertility? If so, do you suppose I could have another baby if I continue on this diet (which I intend to do anyway.). My new doctor (an MD who now treats nutritionally, discovered I have hypothyroidism, and has me on Armour dessicated thyroid, 1/4 gram for now. Could this have played a role?
Also, do you believe there to be any benefit in removing dental metal from my teeth? I have a mouth full of fillings.
Thanks for reading.
