Adults: Where To Start with BIORAY Professional™ Products
Healthy Conception for Women & Men
Both men and women benefit from a total cleanse before beginning to conceive a child. BIORAY’s Healthy Conception Program is cleansing, nourishing, and libido enhancing.
Over time there has been a significant decline of human fertility. This decline has resulted in a major delay in the average age of conception. The first pregnancy is postponed to ages at which women's fertility has decreased. In parallel, it has been hypothesized that there is a worldwide decline in male semen quality. The decline in semen quality has been linked to environmental and work-related toxic exposures.
Cleaning or “detoxifying” the body is of the utmost importance for both men and women who are considering creating a baby. Toxic pollutants are made up of a mix of heavy metals and chemicals. They have an impact on the conceiving parents as well as the child that is born.
This is a 5 phase process for men; and 6 phase process for women (it’s about the plumbing ;):
1. For a couple, supporting your ability to adapt to stress is paramount. Trying to conceive can be “complicated” and stressful. The nourishing the adrenal system not only helps us adapt to stress, it also supports our endocrine system which is vital in becoming pregnant for women and men.
2. For both men and women, healthy liver function supports the body’s elimination of pollutants and the production of healthy hormones.
3. For women removing heavy metals and chemicals not only supports your ability to conceive, it makes a good home for the baby (fetus), and nursing after birth. For men, it supports healthy mobility, motility, and quality of sperm.
4. For women with irregular or dark menses; supporting the luteal and follicular phases is important, that means healthy menstrual cycles that are regular and bright red.
5. Replenishing healthy hormone function can be supported by herbal combinations that support female progesterone & estrogen production and for men testosterone.
6. Waste removal means bowel regularity. Today sluggish bowels have become an issue for many due to the type of food eaten, which is: sugary, caffeinated, starchy, high protein (meat). Bowels moving daily, at least 12 inches long, formed and not hard, is what you want.
The Male Reproductive System
The entire male reproductive system is dependent on hormones, which are chemicals that stimulate or regulate the activity of cells or organs. The primary hormones involved in the functioning of the male reproductive system are follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone.
FSH and LH are produced by the pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. FSH is necessary for sperm production (spermatogenesis), and LH stimulates the production of testosterone, which is necessary to continue the process of spermatogenesis. Testosterone also is important in the development of male characteristics, including muscle mass and strength, fat distribution, bone mass and sex drive.
The Female Reproductive System
The female reproductive system provides several functions. The ovaries produce the female egg cells, called the ova or oocytes. The oocytes are then transported to the fallopian tube where fertilization by a sperm may occur. The fertilized egg then moves to the uterus, where the uterine lining has thickened in response to the normal hormones of the reproductive cycle. Once in the uterus the fertilized egg can implant into thickened uterine lining and continue to develop.
If fertilization does not take place, the uterine lining is shed as menstrual flow. In addition, the female reproductive system produces female sex hormones that maintain the reproductive cycle.
