It's no secret that one of my favorite subjects to talk about is acupuncture.  

In this episode, I talk about how to know if acupuncture is right for you and how find an acupuncturist.  What are some of the questions you have to ask to see if that person is a right fit for you, what qualifications do you look for.  As much as I love my profession, I don’t believe all acupuncturists are created equal and I want to help you to find the right person so that you have an amazing experience.

As always, I appreciate you tuning in!  Let's roll!

In this episode, we’re going to talk about how to know if you’re ready for medical intervention.  

I love the fact that reproductive medicine has advanced so much now because 30 years ago, IVF wasn’t even an option.  And now many women are able to get pregnant and become mothers because of it.

But I think because IUI or IVF is a readily available option, many people are jumping into these procedures pre-maturely, at least in my opinion.

I totally get it, it’s so disheartening to get that big fat negative every single month, and when everyone around you is getting pregnant except you, of course if there’s an easier way, why not?

But today I want to specifically talk to you about why even if you’re considering IUI, IVF you need to make sure that your body is ready because guess what, IVF is only a 46% success rate.  

I’m going to talk about the steps you need to take before you even think about IUI or IVF.  And for some of you who are on the fence about IUI or IVF, this episode is going to also help you make the decision.

Welcome to episode 4!

So I'm back from D.C. and had an amazing time!  Many of you wonder if and how I stay on track with my diet and lifestyle while on vacation.  Vacations for some people is a time to relax, let loose and "cheat" on their diets.  My husband certainly does this.  As he is eating a chocolate cake he'll say "it's vacation."

I've often wondered why people think that vacation is a green light to be unhealthy.  

I think it's the principle of "everything in moderation is ok."  I used to be a fan of this, but now I'm finding that I'm wrong, and moderation may be preventing us from achieving our goals.

To find out why, let's jump in!

Welcome to Season 3 Episode 3, The first of the supplement series.  

Many of you have questions about supplements and what you really should be taking because surely there's something you're lacking that you didn't know about. 

My personal belief on supplements is that we're all over-supplementing.  We have this mentality that we can supplement our way out of a bad diet.  Why eat veggies when you can take a multi-vitamin?

In today's episode, we explore a list of common vitamins and talk about each one, and whether it's optional or for everyone.  My goal is to help you get away from this idea that you need to supplement.  The truth is, if you eat a proper diet, you don't need a ton of supplements.  

To get your hands on today's freebie which is a cheat sheet with all the supplements we talked about today, please visit www.adriennewei.com/podcast to download.

I'm excited about today's episode, let's roll.
