What’s the secret to having a healthy baby? According to the charity Foresight improving natural health in both parents can enhance fertility and improve the chances of successful pregnancy.
For 30 years Foresight has been helping parents preconceptually by devising individualised diet and health programmes for couples to help them to overcome issues such as infertility, low sperm count, miscarriage, birth defects and premature birth. Much of their work is with couples who are finding it hard to conceive.
The charity continually tracks results with its couples and the newly released figures from 2002-2009 are hard to argue with.
Two groups of parents were followed; 1578 couples completed the full programme and 518 did part of the programme but did not complete is. Amongst those who completed the programme 89.8% conceived and the miscarriage rate was 2.96%. Amongst those who did part of the programme 69.1% conceived and the miscarriage rate was 7.53%.
By comparison the national miscarriage rate is 25%.
In the UK, 1 in 7 couples is infertile. Prior to coming to Foresight many of the couples had tried several other ways of getting pregnant. Amongst the study population the success rate of intrauterine insemination was just 6.3%. With IVF the success rate was 11.4% and with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), where sperm is injected directly into the egg, it was 16.5%.
The Foresight programme
The most vital component of the Foresight programme is hair mineral analysis. This is used to detect mineral deficiencies and overload with toxic metals such as lead, aluminium, cadmium and mercury. The deficiencies and the toxins can both be dangerous to a baby and impede normal development.
In addition, parents are provided with:
Participants in the programme are also given a list toxic substances in cosmetics, hair dyes, household cleaners and pesticides that couples wishing to conceive a healthy baby should avoid.
Overall, more than 75% of couples experiencing problems with infertility have gone on to have babies using the natural methods of the Foresight programme.
