Improving Egg Quality and Fertility After Age 35 – FAM #049

Welcome!  My guest today is Bridgit Danner, who is an expert in women’s health.  She is the host of the Women’s Wellness Radio podcast.  I met Bridgit recently at a conference in California and am excited to have her on the show!

Bridgit is the owner of Blue Sky Wellness Studio in Portland, OR, which is a clinic offering naturopathy, massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture to its patients.  Bridgit has been in practice for 11 years, utilizing the principles of Chinese medicine.  She had her own health struggles as she experienced postpartum depression, so she boosted her nutrition, turned to functional medicine, and became passionate to help others.

Bridgit shares the following about women’s health and fertility:

  • At age 35, peri-menopause begins.  Ovarian function declines and hormone levels decrease.
  • Men’s sperm counts and hormone levels decline with age also.
  • For increased fertility, decrease your stress levels.
  • Men and women should do several things jointly to increase fertility:
    • Exercise improves circulation in the genital area—and fertility.
    • Nutrition is important!  Bridgit shares tips on fats, proteins, carbs, and vegetables to maintain optimum health.
    • Superfoods can easily be included daily as nuts, seeds, and berries.
    • Supplements (within reason) can help improve fertility.
    • Some herbs and teas have proven helpful in fertility.
  • Bridgit shares some tips for good health that apply to men only.  Join us for the details!
  • Bridgit has a Kindle book available for $3 titled Making Super Sperm, with a series of Kindle books in the works and available soon!

    Would these tips also work to reduce symptoms of (peri)menopause?

      Thanks for your question! Here is the response from Bridgit:

      Many egg quality improvements will also help perimenopause, or are anti-aging. Antioxidant foods are good for eggs, but is also helpful with anti-aging and disease prevention. Anything that helps with sex hormone production or supporting the luteal phase will benefit perimenopause. Some of the best things for perimenopause are stress reduction and magnesium supplementation, and minimizing alcohol and sugar. And the adapatogenic herbs can be good.

      Hope that helps!
