Nyack Fertility Expert Publishes
NYACK, NY – As a follow-up to the principles of healthy living laid out in her first book, Chill Out & Get Healthy (Penguin/NAL), popular women’s health and fertility expert Aimee E. Raupp, M.S., L.Ac., recently launched a new title, Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now & Into Your 40’s.
Raupp’s second book is a compilation of her expertise and clinical experience helping hundreds of women, many of whom had been told their chances of getting pregnant were slim, to get pregnant and have healthy children. A biologist-turned-acupuncturist, Raupp incorporated Western scientific findings and fundamental practices of 5,000-year-old Traditional Oriental Medicine to calculate the nutritional approach that can optimize women’s reproductive health and fertility.
“As my practice grows and the incidence of infertility continues to rise, I thought that women who are trying or thinking about trying to conceive would greatly benefit from my advice,” Raupp explained, “and I didn’t want a single day to go by without them having this dietary and nutritional roadmap.” So she published Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now & Into Your 40’s as a pre-release of her forthcoming volume on fertility and health.
“Throughout my years of clinical practice, I’ve helped hundreds of women get pregnant, naturally or with assisted reproductive techniques such as IUI and IVF. The diet I’ve formulated can help improve a women’s fertility, no matter where she is on her journey,” said Raupp, who complements her dietary and nutritional guidance with acupuncture. “The bottom line is,” she added, “a lack of proper nutrition greatly complicates a woman’s ability to get pregnant.”
Raupp’s new book asks readers, “Are you eating yourself infertile?” and goes on to detail fundamental nutritional precepts essential to fertility while debunking myths of healthy eating. The book provides a five-day sample menu to illustrate to readers how they can nourish their bodies with wholesome, nutrient dense food, and access to a bonus section of Raupp’s Website with additional fertility resources.
“Nutrition is an essential pillar to conceiving and producing a healthy child, but there remains a lot of confusion as to which dietary approach is best,” added Raupp. “I wrote this book to emphasize diet and nutrition through the lens of published scientific research and the best practices of Traditional Oriental Medicine, in lay language for everyone to follow.”
Raupp’s motivation to develop the Yes, You Can Get Pregnant diet was also personal. “The reality for me is that I will probably have my first child closer to the age of 40,” she explained. “So I wrote the book and am following all of its advice because I know it will help keep my body and fertility in check so that I can have children when I want to.”
The book is available electronically and in hard copy.
WHY WOMEN NEED THE YES, YOU CAN GET PREGNANT DIET NOW MORE THAN EVER:
- Infertility in the U.S. affects 6.1 million couples (approximately 10% of American couples of childbearing age)
- Infertility in the U.S. is rising, and one contributing factor is more women today are waiting until their 30’s and 40’s to have children, when reproductive health may be depleted
- The Yes, You Can Get Pregnant diet combines Western scientific findings and Eastern medicine to frame nutrition as a foundation for reproductive health
- Through her private practice, the author has succeeded in helping women who’d lost hope for having children to get pregnant on this diet
