Ayurvedic Diet Tips for Pregnancy Conception


Two types of food called 'Vrishya' and 'Bringhana Diet' are recommended by Ayurveda for achieving an ultimate healthy body that will also have fine reproductive capacities for pregnancy conception. The Vrishya foods as well as some herbs included in it increase shukra dhatu in both men and women. Bringhana diet includes fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains and cereals, and healthy dairy protein like paneer (cottage cheese), milk, and yogurt.

Have such foods as asparagus, broccoli, milk and milk products. They improve the quality and quantity of sperm and ovum necessary for pregnancy conception.
Milk shakes including milk-date shake, milk-mango shake, and rice pudding are also good for enhancing reproductive capacity leading to pregnancy conception.
Certain spices included in Vrishya food are ajwain (carrom seeds), cumin, turmeric, and black cumin. Take them in small quantities in food. Cumin is believed to purify uterus in women and the genitourinary tract in men. Turmeric improves the interaction of hormones and targeted tissues responsible for reproduction and conceiving baby naturally. It also enhances the binding of estrogen and progesterone that helps in pregnancy conception.
When desirable of pregnancy conception, Ayurveda suggests avoiding coriander as it is not nourishing to shukra dhatu.
Although basil herb is very useful for other things, large quantities of basil is better avoided by couple who wants to conceive baby naturally as it does not support the shukra dhatu.
Apart from the above two herbs, both men and women must also avoid eggplant,tomato,and bell pepper as these vegetables clog the channels restricting the chances of pregnancy conception.
Avoid too hot or spicy food or foods that are too heavy and cold, like ice-cream.
Quinoa seeds help in enhancing estrogen activity in women and support the hormonal activity of both men and women. As such, quinoa, sometimes referred to as a type of grain, should also be taken by couple who desire of pregnancy conception. It can be cooked with a little ghee (clarified butter), salt, and spices like cumin and black cumin.
Eat fruits like papaya and pineapple (especially women should have them as they help in strengthening the ovum leading to healthy pregnancy conception).

Couple Having Healthy Food












Men should particularly have asparagus that has testosterone-enhancing quality. Almonds and dates are recommended by Ayurveda for enhancing sperms in men.
If anyone from the couple trying to conceive baby naturally, has intolerance for dairy products, s/he should get enough protein from beans, pulses, and nuts as the body needs certain amino acids in order to work properly and to create healthy shukra dhatu that are crucial for pregnancy conception.
Have sweet, juicy fruits such as mangoes, peaches, pears, and plums as well as dry fruits like as dates, figs and raisins.
Have a stewed apple for breakfast. It will lead to a healthy body, the basis of pregnancy conception.
If the digestive fire or agni is strong, one should cook a banana in ghee (clarified butter), season it with cinnamon and cardamom before having it. It increases fertility and leads to pregnancy conception.
Split black gram or urad dal can also be taken. However, it is heavy so it should be cooked with spices that enhance agni or digestion fire but at the same time do not aggravate Pitta dosha. Therefore, cook urad dal with spices such as turmeric, cumin, and fennel.

Other Ayurvedic Pregnancy Conception Tips


The couple who desires conceiving baby must also bring certain lifestyle changes for a healthy pregnancy conception. The reproductive organs or the genitourinary tract is governed by Vata dosha, particularly by the sub-dosha Apana Vata. Vata is naturally cool and excessive heat that accumulates in genitourinary tract, might create imbalance. Shukra dhatu also needs a cool environment in order to support fertility and pregnancy conception. Too much heat destroy the quality as well as quantity of sperm and ovum that hampers conceiving baby naturally. Therefore, reproductive area should be kept cool by taking certain measures.

Don't eat too hot and spicy food that can lead to lesser quantity and quality of sperm and lesser motility of the spermatozoa in men as well as low quality of ovum in women.
Don't skip meals as it aggravates pitta dosha.
Avoid drinking too much alcohol, smoking cigarettes, or taking drugs. They can disturb shukra dhatu and also the production of semen and ovum resulting in lower chances of pregnancy conception.
Avoid packaged, canned or frozen foods as also leftovers, foods with vinegar, excessive amounts of citrus foods, pungent foods with chemicals and preservatives as they all increase Pitta.
Wear lose fit garments. Tight elastic waists and polyester-blend fabrics can damage the reproductive system as they hold the heat in. The reproductive area of the body must allow the heat to flow out because overheating can damage the sperm.
Avoid sitting for longer periods as it restricts the flow of energy and clogs the Vata channels. As a result heat does not get released properly, and builds up in that area, disturbing the overall health of semen and ovum. If you must sit for longer, take breaks frequently by getting up from your seat and walking for a while.
As the groin area always releases heat, take steps to cool the area, especially if you sit for longer in office. When at home after a day's work, try to release the heat by sitting in cool water in a bathtub, and patting the genital area with a herbal bolus. To make the bolus, take one part dried rose buds and four parts rolled oats in a cheesecloth. Tie the ends of the cloth and dip the rounded part in the cool bath water. Pat the genital area for five or ten minutes. This releases the extra heat, and creates a cool, soothing and calming effect before you go to bed.
Avoid stress as it can inhibit pregnancy conception. Take to meditation, aromatherapy, or light breathing exercises for getting relief from physical, emotional and mental stress.

Happy Couple












If you want to conceive baby with pregnancy planning, take herbs under expert supervision for internal cleansing, and for increased fertility.Shatavari for women andAshwagandha for men, apart from other herbs have been identified by Ayurveda as increasing fertility and chances of pregnancy conception. The couple going for pregnancy conception should start the detoxification program three months before trying to conceive baby naturally. Ayurveda does not recommend having more sex for pregnancy conception. However, it is recommended at the time of ovulation. To have sex every two or three days is more effective as it lets the males sperm count to replenish itself.
Women trying to conceive baby naturally must keep track of her menstrual cycle by counting it from the first day when it begins. The most fertile days are considered to be during tenth and sixteenth days. Having sex on these days (though not daily) can help in natural pregnancy conception.
The chances of pregnancy conception increase if the woman keeps lying on her back after intercourse and draws her knees up to the chest. This allows sperm to move toward and pool around her cervix that helps to conceive baby naturally.
