Tip Follows :

Low sperm motility is one of the main causes of male infertility. Sperm motility refers to the strength and the endurance of sperm cells to swim towards the egg in order to fertilize it.
Fortunately it is possible to improve sperm motility relatively quickly by selecting the right foods, supplements and  Homeopathy  remedies. Here are 5 tips to get started:
•   Eat foods rich in zinc. Low zinc levels in men affect sperm motility, sperm quality and sperm counts. Foods rich in zinc include seafood (particularly oysters!), liver, lean cuts of red meat, nuts and grains. 
•   Take a vitamin E supplement. Vitamin E protects against free radicals, unstable molecules which damage sperm cells and cause them to become immobile. 
•   Eat foods rich in selenium. Selenium scavenges free radicals and is used by the testes to make selenoproteins, a vital protein required in sperm formation. Well formed sperm are more likely to be motile than sperm with poor morphology. Foods rich in selenium include eggs, brewer's yeast, brazil nuts, garlic and seafood. 
•   Eat foods rich in L-carnitine. L-carnitine is an amino acid used in the production of sperm, and scientific studies have shown that men increasing their intake of the amino acid improved sperm motility and sperm quality over a period of 4 months. L-carnitine-rich foods include lean cuts of meat and dairy products. 
•   Take herbs such as maca root and ginger. Both are non-toxic herbs which have been used by other cultures, for example in Traditional Chinese Medicine and South American Medicine, to improve male fertility. They are particularly beneficial for improving sperm motility and are ingredients in FertilePlus. 
Low sperm motility does not mean the end of male fertility. With a bit of time, dietary changes and herbal remedies, it is possible to improve your sperm motility, and produce motile sperm in just 3 months.

Homeopathic Treatment For Female Infertility :

The term ‘infertility’ refers to being incapable of reproducing in spite of attempts by
intercourse without contraception.
 Types of Infertility in Women:

When a woman of reproductive age is unable to conceive after 1 year of unprotected vaginal intercourse, then it is termed as infertility. There can be a number of conditions, acquired or genetic, that can cause infertility in a woman. The acquired conditions are age, tobacco smoking, sexually transmitted diseases, body weight and eating disorders and chemotherapy. Some sicknesses also can cause infertility.
The most common genetic conditions that may cause infertility are:
• Endometriosis
• Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
• Pituitary Tumors
• Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
• Fallopian tube

ENDOMETRIOSIS:
This is a health disorder that affects only women. In this condition, cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This may lead to pain, irregular bleeding and problems in conceiving (infertility). The cells in the uterus are called endometrial cells. These cells are shed each month during menstruation. In Endometriosis these cells attach themselves to tissue outside the uterus and are called Endometriosis implants. These implants are found most commonly on the ovaries, the Fallopian tubes, outer surfaces of the uterus or intestines, and on the surface lining of the pelvic cavity. They can also be found in the vagina, cervix and bladder although less commonly than other locations in the pelvis. In rare cases, Endometriosis implants do occur outside the pelvis, on the liver, in old surgery scars and even in or around the lungs or brain. These implants are benign (not cancerous) while they do cause other problems. The cause of Endometriosis is unknown. One theory is that the endometrial cells that are shed when the woman gets her period travel backwards through the Fallopian tubes into the pelvis, where they get implanted and grow. This is called retrograde menstruation. This backward menstrual flow occurs in many women, but researchers are of the opinion that the immune system may be different in women with Endometriosis.
Endometriosis is common. Sometimes it may run in the family. Although it is typically diagnosed between the ages of 25 and 35, the condition probably begins around the same time as regular menstruation. Endometriosis is estimated to affect over one million women (estimates range from 3% to 18% of women) in the United States. It is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain and reasons for laparoscopic surgery and hysterectomy in this country. Estimates suggest that between 20% and 50% of women being treated for infertility have Endometriosis and up to 80% of women with chronic pelvic pain may be affected too. A woman who has a mother or sister with Endometriosis is much more likely to develop the condition compared to other women.
You are more likely to develop Endometriosis if you:
A] Started menstruating at a young age.
B] Never had children.
C] Have frequent periods or they last 7 or more days.
D] Closed hymen, which blocks the flow of menstrual blood during the period.

1) Symptoms of Endometriosis:
 Pain is the main symptom of endometriosis. A woman with endometriosis may also have:
A] Painful periods.
B] Pain in the lower abdomen before and during menstruation.
C] Cramps for a week or two before menstruation and during menstruation (cramps may be steady and range from dull to severe).
D] Pain during or following sexual intercourse.
E] Pain with bowel movements.
F] Pelvic or low back pain that may occur at any time during the menstrual cycle.
G] Diarrhea and/or constipation.
H] Lower back pain.
I] Irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding or.
J] Blood in the urine.'


2) How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?
Endometriosis can be suspected based on symptoms of pelvic pain and findings during physical examinations in the doctor’s office. Occasionally, during a recto vaginal exam (one finger in the vagina and one finger in the rectum), the doctor can feel nodules (endometrial implants) behind the uterus and along the ligaments that attach to the pelvic wall. At other times, no nodules are felt, but the examination itself causes unusual pain or discomfort. An ultrasound, can be helpful in ruling out other pelvic diseases and may suggest the presence of Endometriosis in the vaginal and bladder areas, but still cannot definitively diagnose Endometriosis. The only accurate way of diagnosing Endometriosis is at the time of surgery, either by opening the belly with large-incision laparoctomy or small-incision laparoscopy.


3) Suggestion about Homeopathic Treatment of Infertility Associated with

Endometriosis: Endometriosis is more common in infertile, compared to fertile, women. However, the condition usually does not fully prevent conception. Most women, especially those with mild to moderate endometriosis, will still be able to conceive,. It is estimated that up to 70% of women with mild and moderate Endometriosis will conceive within three to six month with homeopathic treatment.

 PCOD OR POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME :

A common endocrine disorder that affect 5-10% of women today. The major factors causing PCOS are obesity and complex changes taking place in the hypothalamus, pituitary and ovaries resulting in the over-production of male hormones. Major signs of PCOS are irregular or no periods, excessive growth of hair and infertility i.e. difficulty in conceiving.

1] What Causes Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?
  No one is quite sure what causes PCOS, and it is likely to be the result of a number of both genetic (inherited) as well as environmental factors. Women with PCOS often have a mother or sister with the condition, and researchers are examining the role that genetics or gene mutations might play in its development. Hormonal abnormality in women with PCOS is excessive production of the hormone LH, which is involved in stimulating the ovaries to produce hormones and is released from the pituitary gland in the brain.

2] Symptoms of PCOS:
  The principal signs and symptoms of PCOS are related to menstrual disturbances and elevated levels of male hormones (androgens). Menstrual disturbances can include delay of normal menstruation (primary amenorrhea), the occurrence of fewer than normal menstrual periods (oligomenorrhea), or the absence of menstruation for more than three months (secondary amenorrhea). Menstrual cycles may not be associated with ovulation (anovulatory cycles) and may result in heavy bleeding. Generally, the patient presents the following symptoms:
• Irregular menses (usually delayed).
• Weight gain and difficulty in losing weight.
• Acne, oily skin, dandruff.
• Excessive hair growth on the face, chest, back.
• Thinning of hair.
• Infertility.
• Miscarriage.
• High blood pressure.
• Diabetes.
• High cholesterol.


 BLOCK FALLOPIAN TUBE DAMAGE:
Blockage and scarring of the Fallopian tubes, “the passageways for the sperm and egg”, are other common causes of infertility. A number of conditions can result in tubal scarring or obstruction. The Fallopian tube carries the fertilized egg to the uterus and also is the passage where the sperms meet the egg. Any kind of damage or blockage in the Fallopian tube will make conception difficult. A Fallopian tube could be damaged by inflammation, a previous history of ectopic pregnancy wherein the fertilized egg continues to develop in the Fallopian tube itself or a previous surgery of abdomen or pelvis. This can be very effectively treated by homeopathy.

Autism is a complex developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, although it is sometimes diagnosed much later. It affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills.

Common features of autism include impaired social interactions, impaired verbal and nonverbal communication, problems processing information from the senses, and restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior.

Alternative Names

Pervasive developmental disorder - autism

Causes, Incidence, and Risk factors

Autism is a physical condition linked to abnormal biology and chemistry in the brain. The exact causes of these abnormalities remain unknown, but this is a very active area of research. There are probably a combination of factors that lead to autism.

Genetic factors seem to be important. For example, identical twins are much more likely than fraternal twins or siblings to both have autism. Similarly, language abnormalities are more common in relatives of autistic children. Chromosomal abnormalities and other neurological problems are also more common in families with autism.

A number of other possible causes have been suspected, but not proven. They involve digestive tract changes, diet, mercury poisoning, vaccine sensitivity, and the body's inefficient use of vitamins and minerals.

The exact number of children with autism is not known. A report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that autism and related disorders are more common than previously thought, although it is unclear if this is due to an increasing rate of the illness or an increased ability to diagnose the illness. Autism affects boys 3 to 4 times more often than girls. Family income, education, and lifestyle do not seem to affect the risk of autism.

Some parents have heard that the MMR Vaccine that children receive may cause autism. This theory was based, in part, on two facts. First, the incidence of autism has increased steadily since around the same time the MMR vaccine was introduced. Second, children with the regressive form of autism (a type of autism that develops after a period of normal development) tend to start to show symptoms around the time the MMR vaccine is given. This is likely a coincidence due to the age of children at the time they receive this vaccine.

Several major studies have found NO connection between the vaccine and autism, however. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention report that there is no proven link between autism and the MMR vaccine.

Some doctors attribute the increased incidence in autism to newer definitions of autism. The term "autism" now includes a wider spectrum of children. For example, a child who is diagnosed with high-functioning autism today may have been thought to simply be odd or strange 30 years ago.

Symptoms
Most parents of autistic children suspect that something is wrong by the time the child is 18 months old and seek help by the time the child is 2. Children with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and nonverbal communication, social interactions, and pretend play. In some, aggression -- toward others or self -- may be present.

Some children with autism appear normal before age 1 or 2 and then suddenly "regress" and lose language or social skills they had previously gained. This is called the regressive type of autism.

People with autism may perform repeated body movements, show unusual attachments to objects or have unusual distress when routines are changed. Individuals may also experience sensitivities in the senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, or taste. Such children, for example, will refuse to wear "itchy" clothes and become unduly distressed if forced because of the sensitivity of their skin. Some combination of the following areas may be affected in varying degrees.

Communication
•Lack of pointing to direct others' attention to objects (occurs in the first 14 months of life)
•Does not adjust gaze to look at objects that others are looking at
•Cannot start or sustain a social conversation
•Develops language slowly or not at all
•Repeats words or memorized passages, such as commercials
•Does not refer to self correctly (for example, says "you want water" when the child means "I want water")
•Uses nonsense rhyming
• Communicates with gestures instead of words

Social interaction
•Shows a lack of empathy
•Does not make friends
•Is withdrawn
•Prefers to spend time alone, rather than with others
•May not respond to eye contact or smiles
•May actually avoid eye contact
•May treat others as if they are objects
•Does not play interactive games

Response to sensory information
•Has heightened or low senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, or taste
•Seems to have a heightened or low response to pain
•May withdraw from physical contact because it is over stimulating or overwhelming
•Does not startle at loud noises
•May find normal noises painful and hold hands over ears
•Rubs surfaces, mouths or licks objects

Play
•Shows little pretend or imaginative play
•Doesn't imitate the actions of others
•Prefers solitary or ritualistic play

Behaviors
•Has a short attention span
•Uses repetitive body movements
•Shows a strong need for sameness
•"Acts up" with intense tantrums
•Has very narrow interests
•Demonstrates preservation (gets stuck on a single topic or task)
•Shows aggression to others or self
•Is overactive or very passive

Signs and tests All children should have routine developmental exams by their pediatrician. Further testing may be needed if there is concern on the part of the clinician or the parents. This is particularly true whenever a child fails to meet any of the following language milestones:

•Babbling by 12 months
•Gesturing (pointing, waving bye-bye) by 12 months
•Single words by 16 months
•Two-word spontaneous phrases by 24 months (not just echoing)
•Loss of any language or social skills at any age.

The other pervasive developmental disorders include: An evaluation of autism will often include a complete physical and Neurological examination. It may also include a specific diagnostic screening tool, such as:

•Autism Diagnostic Interview - Revised (ADI-R)
•Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS)
•Childhood Autism rating Scale (CARS)
•Gilliam Autism Rating Scale
•Pervasive Developmental Disorders Screening Test-Stage 3

Children with known or suspected autism will often have genetic testing (looking for chromosome abnormalities) and perhaps metabolic testing. Autism encompasses a broad spectrum of symptoms. Therefore, a single, brief evaluation cannot predict a child's true abilities. Ideally, a team of different specialists will evaluate the child. They might evaluate speech, language, communication, thinking abilities, motor skills, success at school, and other factors. Sometimes people are reluctant to have a child diagnosed because of concerns about labeling the child. However, failure to make a diagnosis can lead to failure to get the treatment and services the child needs.


Treatment
An early, intensive, appropriate treatment program will greatly improve the outlook for most young children with autism. Most programs will build on the interests of the child in a highly structured schedule of constructive activities. Visual aids are often helpful

Treatment is most successful when geared toward the child's particular needs. An experienced specialist or team should design the individualized program. A variety of effective therapies are available, including applied behavior analysis (ABA), speech-language therapy, medications, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. Sensory integration and vision therapy are also common, but there is little research supporting their effectiveness. The best treatment plan may use a combination of techniques.

DIET
Some children with autism appear to respond to a gluten free or a casein-free diet. Gluten is found in foods containing wheat, rye, and barley. Casein is found in milk, cheese, and other dairy products. Not all experts agree that dietary changes will make a difference, and not all reports studying this method have shown positive results.

OTHER APPROACHES

Beware that there are widely publicized treatments for autism that do not have scientific support, and reports of "miracle cures" that do not live up to expectations. If your child has autism, it may be helpful to talk with other parents of children with autism, talk with autism specialists, and follow the progress of research in this area, which is rapidly developing.

At one time, there was enormous excitement about using secretin infusions. Now, after many studies have been conducted in many laboratories, it's possible that secretin is not effective after all, but research is.
Complications Autism can be associated with other disorders that affect the brain, such as Tuberous Sclerosis, Mental retardation or Fragile X syndrome.
Some people with autism will develop Seizures.

The stresses of dealing with autism can lead to social and emotional complications for family and caregivers, as well as the person with autism.
