Most of all I want you to wake up! With Functional Medicine, we can discover what causes infertility and eventually reverse the condition.
In this episode, we're digging into how to minimize toxin exposure while TTC.
We are exposed to over 85,000 chemicals in our environment.
Environmental working group scientists have identified dozens of studies published in the past five years that report the presence of PFAS, or perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, in cord blood.
“The presence of these chemicals is also a threat to pregnant people, serving as first conta...
We’re digging into how to select your omegas as you prepare for your baby.
Most of the population does not meet the recommended daily requirements for this essential nutrient.
And it is needed for healthy egg and sperm quality.
The nutrient helps with the following:
We’re digging into why fertility cleanses/detoxes can harm fertility and what to do instead if you have low AMH/high FSH.
Preparing your body for conception can be overwhelming and confusing.
All these generalized recommendations may leave us wondering what to do next.
We may think fertility cleanses or detoxes are a good first step.
But what if the detox or cleanse caused unwanted side effects that actually harmed our fertility?
We’re digging into how to connect with your spirit baby.
Many times before couples work with us, they have experienced cancelled IVF cycles due to low follicle count, failed IVFs due to egg or embryo quality, or have been labelled a poor responder.
I know firsthand how difficult it is to hear that you have a very small chance of conceiving naturally or that donor eggs are your only option.
This information from a well-meaning repro...
We’re digging into how to select the correct fertility supplements that can improve pregnancy success.
I know you’re probably taking a lot of supplements right now.
There are so many supplements on the market. It’s downright confusing to know which ones will help both egg and sperm health.
That’s why I’ve compiled the top fertility supplements you need to take to improve pregnancy success this year.
This is a comprehensive list tha...
We’re digging into how to release generational trauma and prepare for parenting.
Let’s face it: no one has experienced a perfect childhood.
Whether you vow never to repeat how you were parented or you want to model how you were raised to your children.
Getting clear about your intentions as you plan for your family is essential to start immediately.
After all, prepping for a baby isn't just about parental leave, nurseries, and regi...
We're digging into why thryoid health matters for low AMH/high FSH.
Our Fab Fertile Method includes a deep dive into your health utilizing cutting-edge functional tests and addressing biochemical and mental-emotional stressors.
A theme we see with primary ovarian insufficiency, diminished ovarian reserve, low AMH, and high FSH is thyroid dysfunction.
And looking at the TSH is NOT the answer.
I know you may have been told that our t...
We’re digging into tips for eating for fertility in the summer.
Making dietary changes can be hard (especially during the summer).
You may feel like putting off the changes until September.
However, eating foods that nourish your body does not need to suck.
And delaying making the changes only delays your chances of pregnancy success.
What if we could take advantage of the bounty that summer produce offers us?
This is not about eat...
We’re digging into what to ask an OB/GYN when you are TTC.
When we visit a conventional OG/GYN, we typically have a very short time to get our questions answered.
It can be intimidating, confusing and emotional when trying to figure out why we struggle to conceive.
Plus, medical gaslighting is real.
You know your body best, not the person in the white coat.
The conventional medical system is broken, and IVF is a big business.
We’re digging into gut health and why this matters when you are TTC.
Addressing gut health is key for anyone on the fertility journey (especially if you have low AMH and/or high FSH).
So often we myopically focus on the AMH and FSH levels and forget about our health.
If you are dealing with any digestive issues such as loose stools, constipation, burping, bloating and gas consider this a HUGE clue that there is an imbalance in your...
We're digging into why gluten matters if you have low AMH/high FSH.
Most people with low AMH/high FSH have made some dietary changes.
You’ve probably changed your diet. You may even have reduced gluten, and maybe you didn’t notice any difference in your health.
If you have digestive symptoms after consuming gluten, consider yourself fortunate because you know for sure there is a correlation.
But most of us don’t have digestive prob...
We’re digging into how to balance blood sugar when you are TTC.
When I ask the question to women with low AMH/high FSH “Have you ever experienced mood swings, sugar cravings, poor sleep and feeling hangry?”
It’s usually at least one but more likely all of the above.
These symptoms (yes, they are symptoms of a greater imbalance in the body) can be why you may be experiencing irregular or absent periods and ovulation disorders.
We’re digging into depression and the link to a fertility diagnosis.
Many people have dealt with depression for years before they were even trying to conceive.
Conventional medicine will give you a diagnosis and perhaps even medication, which many people take for years without digging deeper to figure out why it happened in the first place.
The conversation around mental health is changing.
But what if it’s not depression?
We're digging into how the elimination diet can improve pregnancy success.
There are so many diets that claim to optimize egg and sperm health.
And while one diet might work for someone, is it the right approach for you?
Our bodies are all different.
That’s why our Fab Fertile Method always starts with an elimination diet.
It is the gold standard to figure out if you have a food sensitivity, and we have BOTH partners do the elimina...
We’re digging into secondary fertility and getting sleep with young children as you prepare to expand your family.
Many couples have no problem conceiving their first child and then struggle to conceive their second.
They may deal with low AMH, high FSH, DOR, or POI. We see this all the time (even when the first pregnancy was very easy).
I’ve spoken with many women who tell me that they know that they need to sleep to get pregnant,...
We’re digging into how to improve the oral microbiome and why this matters when TTC.
We all know that brushing and flossing our teeth is a good daily habit, but what if our dental health was linked to our reproductive health?
We talk a lot about how a healthy gut microbiome and vaginal microbiome are essential for anyone on the fertility journey, but what is the oral microbiome?
Periodontal disease can be linked to egg and sperm he...
We’re digging into how to optimize sleep to improve fertility.
Good sleep is the cornerstone of optimal fertility. However, so many of us are struggling with sleep.
Whether it's falling asleep, waking up at night or feeling tired all day.
And sleep aids are a bandaid and do not provide the restorative sleep needed for reproductive health.
The good news is there are targeted strategies that help to improve your sleep.
Sleep hygiene ...
We’re digging into repeat miscarriages and trying to conceive after loss.
Many women suffer from miscarriages and repeat miscarriages. The devastating emotional toll it takes can be hard to endure.
It’s a topic that’s still very taboo, and couples are even hesitant to tell close friends and family members that they are pregnant for fear of losing the baby and then having to explain the loss.
When we experience a miscarriage, what w...
We’re digging into bioidenticals and why this matters when you are TTC.
When I was diagnosed with POF/POI at 28, I was told that I needed to get hormone replacement therapy right away to protect my bones, prevent osteoporosis, and protect my heart.
So I took a synthetic form of hormone replacement therapy for years.
Then, I discovered that the root cause of my infertility was food sensitivity, gut infection, and chronic stress.
We’re digging into how to select the right prenatal as you prepare for your baby.
As we prepare for pregnancy success, a prenatal is an essential part of our fertility toolkit.
However, not all prenatal supplements are created equal in terms of quality, nutrients, and delivery systems.
There can be a lot of confusion, and buying a prenatal on Amazon is never a good idea.
Should your prenatal have folic acid or methylfolate?
