The Portuguese spread their seed in surprising ways...

Portuguese cuisine is one of the most influential in the world.

Consider these internationally recognized dishes...

  • In 1543, a Chinese ship with 3 Portuguese was blown off course on their way to Macau and landed in Japan.  Before the Portuguese were banished in 1639, they left a battered and fried green bean recipe called peixinhos da horta.  Today, in Japan, it’s called tempura and has been a staple of the country’s cuisine ever since.
  • When the Portuguese turned up in Goa, India, where they stayed until 1961, they cooked a garlicky, wine-spiked pork dish called carne de vinha d’alhos, which was adapted to vindaloo, one of the most popular Indian dishes today.
  • Egg tarts in Macau and southern China are direct descendants of the egg tarts found in Lisbon bakeries. 
  • Brazil’s national dish, feijoada, a stew with beans and pork, has its origins in the northern Portuguese region of Minho
  • In Malaysia, several staples, including the spicy stew debal, hail from past Portuguese traders

You see this cross-pollination of ideas in every aspect of life.  That's what contributes to diversity.  Often, with a result that's even better than the original.

And that's why my approach to improving fertility naturally works... cuz it uses ideas from other fields that haven't even registered on the radar of reproductive medicine. 

No one area of science has all the answers.  It's just impossible.  There's so much about the body that we don't understand.

But if ideas from other areas and fields are incorporated, then a whole new buffet of solutions become suddenly available for women trying to get pregnant in their 40s or have poor egg quality or low ovarian reserve.

Those solutions are in the GPS (Get Pregnant and Stay pregnant) Fertility program: zenfertility.com/gps
