Living a Fertile Lifestyle

By Dr. Nashat Latib • Mar 21, 2023

Harness the Power of a 5000-Year-Old Framework to Boost your Fertility

We can talk all day about how to eat and supplement for fertility, and it does help. Still, if you really want to get the best results possible getting pregnant naturally or with IUI/IVF, and growing a healthy super baby… we recommend living a fertile lifestyle!

The thing is, we are all unique, and we have unique lifestyle needs that will best support our fertility.

In our practice, we use the Dosha Body Type system, a 5000-year-old Ayurvedic framework, to determine our client’s body types. Once we know your dosha body type, we can give you specific lifestyle recommendations best suited to you that will help you improve your fertility the most.

What are the Dosha Body Types?

You can discover your body type by taking the short quiz located here.

According to Ayurvedic teaching, each individual has a unique combination of three doshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These doshas represent the three fundamental energies that govern all physiological processes in the body, including fertility.

The goal with Dosha body typing is not to change your body type but rather to understand your constitution so that you can make choices that will serve you best. You want to live in harmony with your body type to prevent many illnesses or diseases resulting from imbalances and increase your natural fertility.

Vata-Type Recommendations

A Vata-type person is a person who might forget where they place their keys or sunglasses, can be scattered or unfocused, and may be doing one thing and easily get sidetracked by something else. The Vata body type tends to be on the skinnier side and tends to have energy in spurts. 

Lifestyle recommendations for the Vata type:

  • Adequate, good-quality sleep
  • Prioritize discipline, habits, and routines
  • Incorporate grounding and meditation practices
  • Recommended exercises: nourishing movements like yoga or short circuits of exercise 10 to 15 mins in length
  • Prioritize warm, nourishing foods and minimize cold/raw foods

Pitta-Type Recommendations

The Pitta-type tends to be intently focused. This is someone who is focused on goals and might be very driven and committed to success in their work, career, or business. They’re also going to be equally intense about wanting to become parents. So the Pitta-type often takes on this intensity around any goal that they have in their lives. 

The Pitta body type tends to exhibit more inflammatory conditions and may experience pain in various parts of the body, and we don’t just mean physical pain. For instance, the pain could also just mean the discomfort experienced when hungry.

Lifestyle recommendations for the Pitta type:

  • Eat regularly to avoid strong hunger pangs.
  • Take breaks during long periods of work.
  • Incorporate 10-15 minutes a day of meditation or grounding exercises.
  • Add in cooling or raw foods like fruits and vegetables, and avoid spicy or fried foods.

Kapha-Type Recommendations

The Kapha-type is centered and balanced and tends to be on the heavier side. They may easily gain weight and find themselves sitting idly for a long time during the day. The positives of Kapha are that they often have thick hair, thick nails, and healthy-looking, vibrant skin.

Lifestyle recommendations for the Kapha type:

  • Get 7-9 hours of sleep a night, even if you feel like you can run on less.
  • Add spontaneity into your day, such as going for a walk in the middle of the day, calling a friend at an unusual time in the middle of your workday, or just doing something that disrupts a scheduled pattern.
  • Focus on eating light or warm foods and avoid heavy and oily foods.
  • Incorporate cardio or weight lifting into your workouts.

In Conclusion…

Living a fertile lifestyle starts with finding out your Dosha body type. By understanding which dosha is dominant in your body and adjusting your diet, lifestyle, and activities, you can improve your fertility and overall well-being.

In our practice, we help our clients design an overall fertile lifestyle. If you’re interested in working with us directly…
