Wheatgrass sprouts were found to contain highly active fertility factors in laboratory studies back in the 1930's. Of course this does not necessarily extrapolate to humans, but it is a point worth noting. It is also very safe.

If my own clinical observations are anything to go by, I would recommend wheatgrass to any prospective mother, and feel quite positive about it.

Hi Flower,

I myself have heard countless women talk about how wheatgrass lowered their FSH. Another thing that lowers it is accupuncture. From what I'm reading you still can get pregnant with a high FSH naturally. It's hard to get pregnant with a high FSH using FERTILITY DRUGS... Please take the wheatgrass, it does change it according to a lot of  women. Stop worrying about FSH levels.No you're not running out of eggs, the levels bounce around. PLEASE PLEASE use the wheatgrass, I know!!!

Dr Chris and Tina.

I have started taking a powdered brand that seems to have a lot of "chemistry", which from what i've read, will help my mitochondria clean up their act, giving my eggs and embryos the best chance i can.

I have been having acupuncture for a year or so to address this problem. this has helped me improve some long standing deficiencies and imbalances. So i'm still hopeful that as my general health improves so will my fertility issues.

Thankyou for your encouragement.

The powder is acceptable, but scientific studies have shown without doubt that the extract used in the Dr Wheatgrass Supershots is 200 to 300 percent higher in antioxidants than fresh wheatgrass juice and much higher than in wheatgrass powders and tablets.

See http://www.drwheatgrass.com/info/newsletters/letter_may07 for more details.

Kind regards,

Hi Flower,

If you get the chance, get the book called the infertility cure, and you'll see what I mean. Infact, wheatgrass is one of the diets for infertility. I can tell you, whatever you were told from the doctor, you'll get a different perspective. Infact the women who wrot the book name is Randine A Lewis. She was initially a RE fertility doctor, top of her class, Harvard Graduate. She didn't believe in the nutrition and herbs to change the body. I can tell you, after her OWN fertility struggle, she realized what she was taught wasn't exactly correct. She had her first child at 44. Also, get the book called Supernatural Childbirth by Terry Mize. I'm going through a similiar situation, but I'm telling you, you will be OK...

I just wanted to leave a message about my recent experience with Dr. Wheatgrass superhots and pose a general question to Dr. Chris about what he thinks has happened in my situation. I am a 45 year old female, with a history of surgery related infertility, and now High FSH. I was told recently by my IVF specialist that my FSH was too high to continue with IVF. He  tested me at 70 which he said meant that my ovarian reserve had sunk so low I was in perimenopause. Anyway, I had read about the benefits of wheatgrass as a potent fertility booster and so decided to try Dr. Wheatgrass Supershots to see if they would help. I took a double dose (two capfuls) every day for three months. I have just done a new FSH test, and discovered much to my delight and amazement that my FSH is now 6.9! The IVF specialist is reconsidering allowing me to continue with IVF. It seems incredible, but true.

Thank you for posting this important information. It appears to support Tina's comment: (12 January, 2008) "I myself have heard countless women talk about how wheatgrass lowered their FSH".

Since 1995, I have observed numerous therapeutic responses to wheatgrass which often suggested the presence of immunomodulatory i.e. "normalising" activity. For example, the presence of hemostasis (blood clotting) and hemolysis (clot dissolving) occurring in the same wound or injury (View example).

Also, it has been shown in laboratory animals that the cereal grasses can increase production of prolactin and growth hormone from the pituitary gland via alpha tocopherol succinate, an analogue of vitamin E. See abstract. Assuming we can extrapolate, wheatgrass could conceivably also stimulate FSH production.

Now, according to M. Dardenne et al (Advances in Neuroimmunology, Volume 6, Issue 4, 1996, Pages 297-307) "cross-talk involving the endocrine (hormone) and immune systems is now largely established." In other words, the immune system can produce hormones and hormone-producing glands can produce immune system cell messengers.

It could follow that wheatgrass may have a modulating or normalising effect on FSH levels with subsequent fertility-enhancing effects.

Kind regards,
Dr. Chris Reynolds

Hi Tina

thanks for asking. i haven't visited for a while. i have one of the books on order. i hadn't ordered earlier as i was already undergoing an ivf cycle and was hoping for the best outcome. this didn't happen and so am searching again.

after seeing panpan's comments i've ordered some  supershots to see what effect this has.

Panpan

thankyou so much for posting your experience....

on a slightly different tack - do you know if wheatgrass contains azelaic acid?

No, it has not been tested for this molecule. However it is a good suggestion that I will put to the board. Thank you for your input.

There may be some connection between azelaic acid and the increased hair and nail growth and acne improvement many report from taking wheatgrass Supershots or applying the wheatgrass skin products.
Kind regards,

Hey Flower! 
I have been thinking about you. There is an article I wanted you to look at. Lowering the FSH is necessary, from what I was told,  ONLY for the fertility drugs. If your FSH is high, you have a better chance of getting pregnant naturally. Stay with it, talk to God everyday in faith. I will be praying for you . But I can tell you SOO many women had VERY VERY high FSH,  I'm talking a 26 year old with a FSH of 108, she had a death in the family, then it went back to 8 or 9.
I hope you get the book the Infertility Cure, the first page will tell you, being infertile is a myth. A lot of times, from what I was told by an accup. that kidneys deplete nourishment as we get older. I'm assuming that must mean wheatgrass put back what we lost, that's why you feel so much younger when you take it.
Don't rush the body, work out, take yoga, I guess don't stress. Just know I will be praying for your pregnancy NATURALLY!!!

Given Panpan's experience (see posting above) I can only say it is well worth a try.

One study has shown that barley grass, which has a similar therapeutic profile to wheatgrass, stimulates growth hormone and prolactin production by the pituitary gland in laboratory animals. (This article is mentioned in my posting of 12 February, 2008) Although one can't extrapolate directly to humans, this may suggest that FSH levels could also be affected. However FSH was not measured in this study.

Kind regards,
Dr. Chris Reynolds.

This message is for Panpan.  I am in a very similiar situatuion as you.  Unfortunately, in just one month my
FSH jumped from 11 to 58.  I am 43 years old and luckily have had very regular cycles.  Like you, my RE has told me there is no hope to use any fertility drugs.  I have $1200.00 worth of Follisim that no one will give me.  Thankfully, I still manage to produce follicles but obviously not good ones.
Is there anything else you did, (change in diet, exercise or
acupunture to lower your FSH?  You seem as determined as I am and I would greatly appreciate any tips or insight.
Actully, I'm scared to death.

Dear Holly,

 I assume you are in the US. If you are, I would suggest that you do three things:

1. Continue to take wheatgrass;
2. Make an appointment with Dr Lifang Liang in San Francisco. She is a Chinese doctor who has successfully used herbs and accupuncture to help high FSH women conceive wth or wthout meds. Her details are on the web.
3.Make a phone appointment to talk to Dr. Check at the Cooper Centre for Reproduction in New York. They are one of the only Centres to support high FSH, older women and actually dont charge that much for a cycle compared to most centres. Dont worry, they have even had success with women who were menopausal not just high FSH. Again their details are on the web

Hope this all helps.

Dear Panpan,

Thank you for all of the advice.  Actully, I am flying out
to Cooper to see Dr. Check on Dec. 10th.  My RE is
totally lost.  First, he told me I have no eggs left and today
he says he thinks I have follicles.  I'm so tired of this
roller coaster ride.  He said that I need to see Dr. Check
and that he will follow whatever protocol he prescribes.
I have heard and read amazing things about Dr. Check.
Incidentally, how are u doing?  Are you going to do IVF?
I am in this US are you?

Hi Holly,
Please see reply I wrot earlier in the year: Also, get the book Supernatural Childbirth, women for centuries have been given birth at your age, and that's not late, my aunt natural gave birth at 50 to her children. This is not rare. You have eggs as long as you have a PERIOD!!! When you're 40 the average women has 20,000 follicles left. I think the science is all wrong. But please read also, Infertility Cure, written by a top RE, who realized what she was taught in school was wrong! She had her own child with herbs at your age. I will pray for you for CHILDREN!!

Hi Tina,

Thank you for all of your support and advice.  I am
going to see Dr. Check at Cooper Institute on Wed
Dec 10th.  I am also taking two shots of wheatgrass per day
along with herbs, DHEA and Vitex. I don't want to
lie, I'm scared to death because I think I have developed
dry eyes and read that this is a sign of menopause.  I got
my period this month, but it was not as heavy as usual.
I know I'm not supposed to stress out, but I can't help it.
Pray that all goes well with Dr. Check.

Hi Holly,

I know you don't want to hear the words " not to worry" but here goes " Not to worry" First off, Our periods change from month to month, you are noticing everything about your period now because you're are paying attention to it because of this process you're going through. Second, your period is going to be lighter and possible brighter in color, wheatgrass does this. The vitamin k causes you not to overbleed. Go on google.com and look up menstrual cycle vs. vitamin K. Dry eye is also a symptom of other things, like toooo many herbs. Just stick to the wheatgrass Please! You don't need this other stuff. Look at the pass blogs we all wrote. Also, I don't know what you're faith is, but if you get the book, Supernatural Childbirth(conception, delivery) etc. You'll see, that the doctor is not the final answer. It's not a pie in the sky book. But it shows you the difference between facts of things and truth. Remember, your period changes no matter what age, you're just keep a watch on it every month, which is causing you to get upset. Please get that book even though you are going through the procedure with Dr. Check... please! It will change you, I would recommend you get the CD if it's not sold out, or better yet, get the one you can download to your IPOD or MP3 player, so you can hear it over and over again. You're YOUNG HOLLY and there are a LOT of women who had babies older than you. You're not going to here this from the doctors, they will tell you to get donor eggs etc..
 Just continue the wheatgrass!!!!
I'm not going to get into why they do this, but it has nothing really to do with helping YOU!
JUST GET THE BOOK from this site: http://www.harrisonhouse.com/SearchResults.aspx?search_string=Supernatural+Childbirth&SEARCH=Go
JUST GIVE THE WHEATGRASS A CHANCE!!! What you lost from your body from aging(like we all do) will be put back in with the wheatgrass, that's what it does, REVERSE THE BODY! I strongly believe that eggs regenerate!!  I will continue to pray for you, keep me informed! It takes about 3 months for the wheatgrass to affect the cycle, so relax.

Hi Holly,

I'm sure by now you have heard about a woman gave birth in India at 70 and another one went to India from Puerto Rico at the age of 66 and gave birth. Ok, NOW DO YOU BELIEVE ME AND PANDA! Your eggs don't go away, when you age, they stop responding, because you lose enzymes and other stuff during aging. Wheatgrass puts it back in..... I repeat 70 and 66, these two women are old enought to be your Mom. The one women who had the baby at 70 was married 20 years ago, this is her FIRST child Holly.
Ok, also, I'm not surprised by this, India uses "Wheatgrass" for a lot of ailments! LOT OF WHEATGRASS!!! A family member recently passed, I was giving her wheatgrass one day, she decided on her own she didn't want to take it,  her doctor ( who's from India) came in the room and asked, what are you giving your her, she LITERALLY snatched the drink out of my hand and gave it to my Mom quickly and told her to drink it"  Having babies late in different parts of the world are not rare. Only the US decided to make it rare!!! Please stay with the wheatgrass for at least 3 months. Infact, stay with it for life and see all the wonderful benefits. IVF doesn't make you grow eggs, you already are equiped with them... The IVF make them respond!!!
Here is the link: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,463353,00.html
You will be just fine. I will continue in prayer for you!!! When you feel down, think of these women, think of my My family member who had twins naturally at 51, my Mother had me in her 40's.

Dear Holly,

I was in the US for 8 years but am an Australian National and have come back to Australia, principally because IVF is much cheaper here....around $2000 US a cycle. I consulted Dr. Check and he was very optimistic but my main problem with his clinic was the distance I had to travel in order to receive treatment. Further, my infertility has been caused by other factors, apart from those obviously age related. I have a serious auto-immune disease which has made it difficult to conceive. I am now 45, going on 46, so my chances of a natural conception are statistically low. It is still possible, however, to obtain a donor egg and proceed to a natural pregnancy. With due respect to our friend, Tina...this is actually what has happened in India. I am proceeding along this path and its option for you, in the event that your own eggs dont work. I would say, however, not to compare yourself to me, as I have a pre-existing problem which would make it difficult for a young woman to concieve let alone a woman of my advanced age. You may still be able to concieve your own child naturally by using the wheatgrass. Give it a few months and also do what Dr. Check recommends. I would also encourage you to seek assistance from Dr. Lifang Liang in San Francisco. Women come to her for fertility related issues from all over the world. She specializes in using natural medicine to augment and support IVF and has written a book about it. I didnt have success with her but I met several women who did, one of whom was aged 50. Incidentally that woman used her own eggs ....

Good Luck,

Pan

Hi Holly,

I thought this article was based on this women using her own eggs like the previous woman in her 60's. I am currently in the Indian region as I travel here very often with my husband. Yes, there have been woman close to that age, use their own eggs, via IVF. Yes, the last women did it in South Africa at 61 years old. There was a time when you were told you couldn't carry after a certain age, nowyou can, they say the eggs are too old after a certain age, but we are now seeing not the case. They have used a procedure where they used an older women eggs and put it in a younger body, guess what, pregnant!
India grows the most wheatgrass for medicinal and other purposes is India. Keep up the wheatgrass.
Pan Pan, sorry to use your name, it was another women who I may have blogged with that saw the affects of wheatgrass. However, Pan Pan, have you ever checked out the book, the Infertility Cure. Please do so, there were women that had the same situation as you. Please, it's written by a women who was an RE, top graduate from Harvard in her field, has now realized, that medical science in fertility is not completely ... complete. She herself was pregnant at 45. Please check it out, and I WILL continue to pray for you as well.

Holly, please keep going, and please get the books I recommended.

Hello Panpan and Tina,

Thank you both for all of your wonderful support and advice. I met with Dr. Check who is absolutely magnificient.
The man is a genius.  He was able to analyze me and give
me answers to questions no other doctors could.  I love his
enthusiasm and wisdom.  I have decided to start treatment with him and continue drinking wheatgrass religiously.  He
doesn't believe I am going into menopause and is optimistic.
As he put it, I need some fine tuning.  I am very excited about starting treatment and will keep everyone posted.
God Bless the both of you.

Hey Holly!!!
I'm happy for you!!!! I gotta' feeling you will get pregnant from the wheatgrass alone. NOOOO, You're not going through menopause! Men get dry eye too, again, we all need to fine tune, over the years, we lose enzymes from our body, you HAVE to put them back in. The only way to put them back in is with the food that has your DNA, WHEATGRASS! Your body has soooo much enzymes, that a vitamin in a bottle can't produce all of them. You will start to see a change in your body with the wheatgrass, don't ever stop taking it!
I will keep you in my prayers. Funny, everytime I pray for my friends to get pregnant, it happens!! I"m just as excited for you as you are for yourself.
Here is some articles about wheatgrass!!
Really sit down and read what's going to be going on with your body with this wheatgrass and look at Dr. Chris's forum and testimonies.
see articles: http://ezinearticles.com/?Wheat-Grass-Shots---Benefiting-Fatigue-to-Fertility&id=776100
Remember, your eggs are not locked away soemewhere where they are not getting the nutrition. What I mean by this, whatever you feed the body, your fertility follows. Wheatgrass affects the WHOLE BODY Holly. No matter what you have, wheatgrass can affect it. I still get eczema on my hand, but once I started the wheatgrass, it started fading,  which is an auto immune thing from what I heard, but no more, I have no PMS Migraines any more, no more colds, more wind when I work out etc, these type of positive results started a coupleof weeks after I took different type of wheatgrass, it's been two years and I feel GREAT!
 It's said the high magnesium in wheatgrass builds enzymes that support your fertility. Holly, we are made of enzymes, millions that we don't know about but God who made us! Wheatgrass was a food used thousands of years ago.
Still, get the Supernatural Childbirth book while going through the treatment!!! Yes, your period will be light with the wheatgrass, A GOOD THING!!!

Dear Dr. Chris,

I've just found your web site today, trying to find some solutions to my issues on fertility.

I am a 43 years woman. I live in Australia. I am on the way to try IVF with my partner and it seems that I could already be menoposal.  I had issues with my period in the past such as no period for three months, some hot flashes.

I have been doing acupuncture for the last few months and I went to see the specialist the other day and the news was quite bad. Only one folicule in one ovaries... Not flash.

I have been taking one and off wheatgrass shots. Sporadicly I have to say. What was written in the blog was amazing.

Do you think that wheatgrass could help me with the problem I have. I am also taking a lot of vitamins supplements.

Looking forward to your reply.

Kindest regards
Willya

As you appear to have discovered from this forum, it is quite possible that wheatgrass might help, but it would be wrong of me to give any kind of guarantee.

There is very little I can add other than my experience of seeing a good deal of "infertile" women conceive after taking wheatgrass regularly. One in particular after 9 years of trying to conceive. It is really a matter of trying it for yourself knowing there is likely to be a hormonal shift as a result, and that wheatgrass is quite safe.

Kind regards,
Dr. Chris Reynolds.

Hello Dr You mention increase hair growth, is that facial hair or general hair growth?I have just started using the wheatgrass recovery cream on my face and for my fissure. I also take the supershots, is it safe if your trying for a baby?

Neither actually. Wheatgrass can sometimes stimulate growth of dormant hair follicles in autoimmune-caused alopecia or hair loss. Some people have reported stronger and healthier head hair they attribute to taking wheatgrass regularly.

Supershots are quite safe for you to take if trying to conceive. They contain all natural ingredients and, after all, wheatgrass is a food.

Kind regards,
Dr. Chris Reynolds.

Hi Dr. Chris,

I have read all of these posts and I am hopeful that I can use Wheatgrass to lower my high FSH. I am 41 with my last FSH of 42. 

I'm not sure which to order from the site. People talked about the super shots. Is that best? Or, should I order the frozen package of juice? As a first time user, I'd love some advice on the best choice when my goal is lowering FSH with the product. I know it is great for general health as well.

Thank you,

Kristen

I can only go on my own experiences of the wheatgrass Supershots having quite a profound influence on some patients, plus many anecdotes from around the world. I don't know about frozen wheatgrass juice. Certainly, Supershots are shelf stable for at least 2 years which is not the case for frozen juice. Also, the dose is only 5mls daily and retain in the mouth for a couple of minutes to allow for maximum absorption of bioactives, then swallow the remainder.

Kind regards,

Dr. Chris Reynolds.

Thak you so much for your post! I just happened to be taking 2 ounces of wheatgrass 3 times a week for the past 3 months. I'm doing acupuncture, taking DHEA, Royal Jelly, CoQ10, Evening primerose oil, acidophuluis, and a prenatal chewable vitamin. I have been diagnosed with DOR and that's al my RE talked about was a donor egg. I'm searching the internet in vain looking for "that fertiliy cure" that would help me. My FSH is 15.9 and my AMH is .16. There was still a part of me that believed that since I have a period EVERY month EVERY 27 days, and all my progesterone tests have been high for positive ovulation, there was still hope of us getting pregnant. I'm 38 years old. This will be my first pregnancy.

I was so debating about trying this fertility cleanse that people are raving about. I wasn't sure if the wheatgrass, we juice it ourselves) would be enough to restore my body to where I can get and sustain a pregnancy. After reading your post, I broke out in tears. It meant so much to me to read so much positive feedback from someone who could relate. I'm not very religious, but I'm going to buy the "Supernatural" book you suggested. Thank you so very much for your words of encouragment and inspiration! I'm very stressed which over the years has caused my ovaries to not get a sufficient blood supply since my body has been in the "fight or flight" mode. I bought Dr. Randine's book as well, it helped to understand more of what is actually is going on with me in acupuncture. Thank you so very much again, you made my day!!!!

Hello Ladies,

I just wanted to let you know that on October 3 my FSH was 12.4 (I was also on day 3 of my menses for labs). I was so worried once I learned about the score and immediately researched how to lower it. I started to take wheatgrass and I just got tested again November and it was down to 10.9!!!! I had only been taking it a few weeks so I know it works.

My question is this: My doctor just put me on Clomid since I have been TTC for 1 year. Clomid actually stimulates the follicles (fsh) so will taking wheatgrass affect my trial on Clomid?

Unfortunately there is no simple answer to your question, but in my experience and to my knowledge, there is no contraindication to taking wheatgrass while on any medication. Wheat, after all, is a staple food.

Kind regards,

Dr. Chris Reynolds.

I doubt that anyone can answer your question adequately as there are no clinical trials available to verify the dosage. As a general rule, it is probably best to double up on the regular daily dose. I would therefore recommend 5mls of Supershots or perhaps 15mls of fresh wheatgrass juice morning and night . The most important thing is to keep the liquid in your mouth for a couple of minutes before swallowing to allow maximum absorption of bioactives sublingually.

Kind regards,

Dr. Chris Reynolds.

The amount of wheatgrass you take is not as important as the way you take it. Please read my brief article on this topic:

I have a question does vitex have estrogen or estrogen properties because I have uterine fribroids and I want to use vitex/chasteberry to help regulate my periods?

 

Has anyone with a heart condition ever used vitex, maca or dong chi?

Hi all

I am a Bowen Therapist and there are Bowen treatments (moves) that are for and have had success in helping with fertility issues.

Bowen Therapy is a gentle and effective treatment for pain relief and healing.

Bowen Therapy is a holistic and multidimensional approach to pain relief and healing. The underlying cause or source of many health or pain problems could be found in the soft tissue or fascia. Fascia is a specific type of connective tissue that forms a three dimensional web surrounding every tissue in the body. Fascia is the body organiser embracing all nerves, bones, arteries, veins and muscles. Therefore fascial dysfunction can affect every structure, muscle, nerve and organ in the body. The Bowen Technique helps the body remember how to heal itself.

There are specific moves that have been successful with fertility (both in male and female). Gentle moves are made over and along the coccyx and ovaries in addition to other specific moves.

As with wheatgrass, perseverance is often required as there maybe additional areas of the body that may require rebalancing first.

Research Bowen Therapy online and I hope that this will be beneficial to all those out there looking for answers.

Regards

Mick

Hi Dr

I want to lower my FSH definitely, and can you please recommend which product I need to take? I am currently taking powder one, and I found power one drinking during period, the period tend to be a bit heavier, is that good sign or not? As I can't find wheatgrass capsule or tablet online shopping, it's most of skin care product.

Can you please send me link and recommend which one is good for me? Do you mail to South Africa?
Thanks

Increasing numbers of women with high FSH's trying to conceive are finding their levels falling after persevering with wheatgrass Supershots. There is some evidence that wheatgrass acts directly on the pituitary gland to achieve this. However, there are no clinical trials to prove it. Certainly, many of my own patients have conceived once they persevered with wheatgrass daily. Also, it is possible that the change in your period is a result of you taking wheatgrass powder.

I recommend 5ml twice daily for the first month, ensuring you hold the liquid in your mouth for a couple of minutes before swallowing to allow for maximum absorption of the bioactives in wheatgrass sublingually.

We now have a distributor in South Africa. This is their website link: http://drwheatgrass.co.za/

Kind regards,

Dr. Chris Reynolds.
