Pomegranate stimulates libido and improves fertility

Are you looking for natural remedies to improve your fertility?
In this article I put pomegranate in the spotlight.
Did you know that pomegranate can improve your libido? A higher libido is certainly useful if you are trying to get pregnant. So add pomegranate to your hot dishes.
Below I will explain the effects of pomegranate, some suggestions for eating it and why it is best eaten warm.

Pomegranate from a Western perspective

The seeds in particular contain phytoestrogens, which are good for a balanced hormone balance. (You can safely use pomegranate if you have breast cancer).
It is very good against parasites, it destroys worms in the intestinal tract
It strengthens the gums
It soothes ulcers in the mouth and throat
Pomegranate can travel long distances when ripened, therefore it will not lose too much of its medicinal value.
You can also use pomegranate if you have breast cancer

Pomegranate from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

It builds up blood and body fluids
It strengthens jing, kidney yin and heart yin
It activates wei qi

Thermal effect of pomegranate

Pomegranate has a warming effect. Keep in mind that it doesn't build deep Yang, so it won't help with cold feet. In general, fruit does not have a very warming effect.

Contraindication to the use of pomegranate

If you have diarrhea and it has just started, do not use pomegranate.
However, if you have chronic diarrhea or dysentery, you can use pomegranate in the form of a decoction of the peel.

How can you use pomegranate for better fertility?

If you are trying to conceive, it is best for women to eat 3 hot dishes a day. Or at least dishes that are prepared warm and eaten later at room temperature. The reason for this is simple
The suggestions below are therefore hot dishes:

  1. Make some gluten- and lactose-free pancakes for breakfast and add pomegranate seeds to the batter.
  2. Garnish pumpkin, cauliflower or parsnip soup with some pomegranate seeds and pine nuts. Also stir a few pomegranate seeds into the soup just before serving, so that they can warm up a bit with the soup.
  3. Stir them into your warm millet porridge in the morning. Millet has a stabilizing effect and therefore also helps to prevent miscarriage during pregnancy.

Have you ever thought about fertility reflexology? This could also be an option to increase your fertility. Nutrition is the basis where it starts and the next step is complementary medicine such as reflexology, acupuncture and more.
