Naturopathic treatment of male infertility focuses on improving sperm quantity, sperm quality, and overall male reproductive health. Researchers reported that sperm counts have fallen almost 50 percent since the 1930s. Although some dispute these findings, it is generally accepted that sperm counts are declining.
The reason appears to be environmental and dietary. Lifestyle changes are interfering with men's sperm production. If this is so, improving diet and making healthy lifestyle choices should positively impact male reproductive health.
The importance of a healthy diet cannot be overstated. To function properly, the male reproductive system requires the proper vitamins and minerals. Nutritional deficiencies can impair hormone function, inhibit sperm production, and contribute to the production of abnormal sperm.
Eat a natural foods diet that focuses on fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, poultry, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
Drink half of body weight in ounces of water daily (e.g., a 200 lb man would drink 100 oz of water).
Eliminate processed and refined foods (e.g., white flour, junk food, sugars), alcohol, and caffeine.
Avoid saturated fats and hydrogenated oils (e.g., margarine); use olive oil.
Pumpkin seeds are naturally high in zinc and essential fatty acids which are vital to healthy functioning of the male reproductive system. Eat 1/4 to 1/2 cup a day of pumpkin seeds to help maintain a healthy reproductive system.
The following supplements have been shown to increase sperm count and/or motility. Allow 3-4 months for the supplements to work.
Arginine—Take 4 gr daily. Needed to produce sperm. If the sperm count is below 10 million per ml, arginine probably will not provide any benefit.
Coenzyme Q10—Take 10 mg daily. Increases sperm count and motility.
Flaxseed oil—Take 1 tbsp daily. Is a source of essential fatty acids.
L-carnitine—Take 3–4 grams daily. Required for normal sperm function.
Multivitamin-mineral—Buy a high-quality product and take one serving size (differs from brand to brand).
Selenium—Take 200 mcg daily. Improves sperm motility.
Vitamin B-12—Take 1000 mcg daily. A B-12 deficiency reduces sperm motility and sperm count. Even if no deficiency exists, B-12 supplementation may help men with a sperm count of less than 20 million per milliliter or a motility rate of less than 50 percent.
Vitamin C—Take 500 mg 2 times daily. Is an antioxidant.
Vitamin E—Take 400 IUs 2 times daily. Is an antioxidant and improves sperms' ability to impregnate.
Zinc—Take 30 mg 2 times daily. Required for a healthy male reproductive system and sperm production.
