Getting Pregnant after Getting off of Gluten
About how long will it take to become pregnant once you go gluten free assuming
of course this is the cause of infertility?
Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing and there are too many factors involved. Remember it's not the gluten itself that causes the infertility, it's the effects it has on your body.
So, the REASON why you become infertile with gluten sensitivity is damage to the intestines which causes nutrient malabsorption from Increased Intestinal Permeability
which leads to autoimmune diseases, Adrenal Gland Fatigue
, intestinal parasites and a whole host of other problems.
There's also the issue of building up your body and replacing the nutrient deficiencies. If you do a gluten free diet like many people and you go get a bunch of gluten free junk food and continue to eat sugar, processed foods, artificial sweeteners and other low to no nutrient foods- then you'll not fix your nutrient deficiencies and you're just not going to get pregnant.
So, it depends on WAY too many factors to be able to say, "It will take between X and X months to get pregnant."
If you are trying to get pregnant, I HIGHLY suggest that you read the book, Nutrition
and Physical Degeneration
by Weston A. Price and the cookbook that shows you how to eat by these principles called Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats
These books talk about societies into the 20th Century who still ate the exact same way that they had for thousands of years. He talks MUCH about pregnancy and the ways that these societies would prepare women for pregnancy with the choicest foods- often going out of their way or enacting temporary peace during wartime to get these foods to ensure healthy pregnancies.
This is a far cry from most women today who I'll see having a latte and a pastry for breakfast at Starbucks who don't have a clue that this terrible diet could have consequences to their unborn children.
So, there is FAR more to nourishing your body in preparation for pregnancy than simply not eating gluten... Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune System Queen
