How To Improve Ovarian Health
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

The production of follicles depends on 5 main hormones.
1. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) secreted by the hypothalamus.
2. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) secreted by the hypothalamus.
3. Luiteinizing hormone (LH) secreted by the hypothalamus.
4. Estrogen secreted by the ovaries
5. Progesterone secreted by the ovaries and adrenal glands.

These 5 hormone work together to trigger ovulation. GnRH stimulates the release of FSH and LH from the anterior pituitary gland. This stimulates the follicle growth. If anyone of these hormones is out of balance the entire system will not work properly.

Vitex Agnus Castus is also recommended to increase follicle size, but this herb cannot be taken while on Clomid. Talk to your doctor about the possible side effects of Clomid on your ovarian reserve and long term use of this drug. If your doctor agrees to give you some time to use alternative medicine for a number of months your body will be able to achieve hormonal balance and produce healthy size follicles. Vitex is a slow acting herb and should be taken for at least 4 months. If you are suffering from PCOS it is very important to follow a diet that is low in sugar because insulin spikes can cause your follicle to be smaller in size. So keep you blood glucose under control by eating lots of bruits and vegetables. Juicing is a very good way to boost fertility/

In homeopathic medicine the most useful remedies used to increase follicle size is Folliculinum. This remedy should be selected in the appropriate homeopathic potency and dilution for each individual case. A woman suffering from PCOS will need this remedy at a specific time during her cycle, while a woman who is suffering from absent periods due to unovulation will need this remedy at a different potency and time during the cycle. A woman who has a very short cycle will need this remedy for increasing the length of her cycle and increase the luteal phase if too short.
This remedy is often recommended as part of the Homeopathic Fertility Program. To receive your individualize homeopathic protocol, please place your order.
