Geering Up For 5th Annual Baby Reunion

On Saturday, August 15 we will once again be hosting our annual baby reunion at Clawson Park. The event celebrates the success of fertility treatment by inviting former patients who had a baby or babies as a result of treatment with us. It allows our staff to meet their new addition(s) and for families to mingle with others who went through similar experiences. It is always a fun time!

A BBQ lunch will be served and entertainment with include glitter tattoos, rides on a trackless train, and a visit from Mickey Mouse! Due to the large number of patients that have had success through our clinic, this year we had to limit the number of people who were invited. Patients who had a baby in the past five years received and invitation.

Dr. Bradley Miller and the rest of the RMA staff is looking forward to the event!

Nutrition and Fertility: Myths and Facts

Dietary patterns have long since been associated with affecting fertility success rates. From old wives tales to proven scientific studies, there are a range of beliefs regarding the impact that nutrition has on fertility.

Nutrition Myths and Pregnancy

Below are some myths regarding nutrition and its effect on fertility success rates:

  • Consuming more soy products increases the success rate of fertility.
  • Consuming too much caffeine decreases the success rate of fertility.
  • Alcohol can boost your chance of pregnancy.
  • A diet low in fats and high in carbohydrates is ideal for achieving pregnancy.

Nutrition Facts and Pregnancy

Below are some facts regarding nutrition and its effect on fertility success rates:

  • Moderation of nutrition is the best, and most trusted, factor for fertility success rates.
  • Any time you can reduce the amount of stress in your life it will have a positive effect, even with fertility success rates.
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol decreases your chance of pregnancy.
  • A diet with moderate to moderately high consumption of fats (both saturated and unsaturated) are the preferred fuel source to assist with pregnancy.

Below are references to two studies that help to clarify some of the myths regarding nutrition and fertility:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17329264/

Very well summarized by HealthyBabyCode.com – “A study at Harvard found that women who ate two or more servings of low-fat or non-fat dairy per day, like skim milk or yogurt, had 85% higher risk of infertility than those that ate full-fat dairy products.”

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2170167

Very well summarized by HealthyBabyCode.com – Another study found that “Women who eat less saturated fat have a smaller chance of becoming pregnant. More specifically, the authors found that women with oligomenorrhea, a condition of light or infrequent menstruation associated with infertility, consume significantly less saturated fat and significantly more polyunsaturated fat than women with normal menstruation and fertility.”

Run For Charity

This coming October is shaping up to be very busy one for me. On the 10th I will be turning 49 and on the 15th Charla and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. Finally on the 20th, Charla and I plan to run the Detroit Marathon, yes that’s right, 26.2 miles over bridge into Canada and back into the US through a tunnel. You may think that this is some form of a midlife crisis but there is a purpose behind my insanity. We are part of one of the largest groups ever to run the Detroit Marathon (over 1400). Our goal is to raise over a million dollars to build wells for the Pokot Tribe in Northern Kenya.

In this remote area of Africa, they have no access to clean water. Every day the women walk over 5 miles one-way to bring back contaminated water which is slowly killing them one way or another. In fact there is over 25,000 children throughout the world that die each day due to diseases related to lack of clean water.

I am humbly asking you to assist me by being one of my sponsors. My personal goal is to raise over $2000. There is no donation that is too small and all donations are 100% tax deductible. In addition I am going to match every donation dollar for dollar. You can donate online at the link provided below or you can send a check to the Hope Water Project at the address listed below. Please include my name in the memo line of your donation.
