Better System. Better Balance.

Better Health.

Systems biology uses algorithms to measure body system balance in a holistic “real-life” forecast. We measure six Systems key to fertility health.​

The core issue for men with a Fluids PFP is improving the movement and nature of their body fluids. Fluid movement slows down when they build up or become stickier, and this causes heaviness, aching and tiredness. Although many Fluids PFPs will have issues with their weight, the main problem they need to address is fluid metabolism, and once fluids are healthy, any weight issues usually improve too.

Water makes up about 60% of healthy adults (it falls on either side of a normal BMI), and the quality, movement and balance of our body fluids are crucial for our health. Imagine if our bodies had an extra 20% liquids, or if they were thinner or thicker! It would dramatically change blood flow and how we feel and function, yet our crucial fluids are generally overlooked as a health issue.

The extra or thicker fluids that Fluids PFPs have cause tissues to swell and reduce circulation, and they can block tubes and disrupt the function of organs. The build-up of fluids and congestion is what causes feelings of heaviness and distension.

Circulation is essential for organ and muscle health, and when sticky fluids slow things down, it can create tiredness that usually improves with movement. Fluid problems are surprisingly common and can affect any part of the body, with typical signs of swelling, aching, woolly-headedness, dizziness or nausea.

Because body fluids moisten the skin, the skin can reveal fluid imbalances:

  • Rough, dry skin indicates a lack of fluids
  • Oily skin indicates thicker fluids
  • Swollen, puffy skin is a build-up of fluids
  • Lumps and bumps form when fluids congeal
  • Acne is a combination of excess fluids and heat (the redder the spots)

Male fertility and fluids

Body fluids play a significant role in male fertility, from the ability to get an erection to the health of sperm:

  • Sperm are made in the testes and carried out of the body in semen
  • 90% of semen comes from accessory glands like the prostate
  • Semen needs to be the right consistency to nourish and protect sperm
  • If it’s too thin, it doesn’t protect sperm
  • If it’s too thick, sperm get stuck in it after ejaculation

These problems usually show up as liquefaction and viscosity issues in semen tests, and the causes include infections, altered immunity and hormonal issues.

Having problems with your prostate is usually considered an older man’s issue, but it often starts earlier in life, and swelling of the prostate has connections to important fertility factors:

  1. Chlamydia infections
  2. Poor diet
  3. Excess weight
  4. Abnormal hormone levels

Hormones have a major effect on our fluid metabolism, and fluids have a significant impact on hormones:

  • Men put on weight when their insulin levels rise
  • Blood sugar levels rise with an increase in BMI [4]
  • Overweight men have higher estrogen and lower testosterone levels
  • Having more fat cells increases leptin levels, which increases estrogen levels in the body

These factors encourage the production of more sticky body fluids, and unfortunately, they also promote each other to lower sperm quality and sex drive.

There are SIX issues that can promote Fluids PFP dynamics, and we explain them in detail as understanding what’s driving the Fluids PFP makes it much easier to reverse them. Plus, four of the other PFPs can encourage the Fluids PFP to develop!
