Do you ever find yourself saying things like “I’m infertile,” “I don’t have the willpower,” “people think I’m annoying,””I can’t do this,” “this is too hard.”

We probably all have said something similar.  These are what we call limiting beliefs.

Limiting beliefs are show stoppers.  They stop us in our tracks and prevent us from moving forward.  Just by having these beliefs, we do not think, do or say the things that the beliefs prevent us from thinking, doing or saying.  And we end up totally sabotage ourselves.

Having a fertile mindset is as important as having a fertile cycle and a fertile lifestyle.  

Today's episode is part 1 of a two part series on how to overcome limiting beliefs that are preventing you from getting pregnant.  We learn what limiting beliefs are and where they comes from.

Let's dive in.

Today, I want you to meet Heather, a member of the Practically Fertile Club.  

Heather has gone through three rounds of IUI and is currently taking a break to get healthy before trying again.  Heather’s challenges right now is with the nutrition plan.  She is trying to stick to the plan as closely as possible but is gaining weight instead of losing weight which she needs for optimal hormonal balance.  

The reason I reached out to Heather to offer her the honor coaching call is that I know so many of you are also struggling with the nutrition piece of the puzzle.  You think you’re doing the right thing, but you’re not getting the results you’re looking for.  

So I think you’re going to really enjoy this episode because it helps to know that you’re not alone.  I know some of you when you hear Heather’s story, you’ll be nodding your head “yes, that’s me.”  And even though no two people are alike and what I’m recommending for Heather isn’t necessarily what I would recommend for you, I know you’re still going to walk away with new ideas that might apply to your own situation.

I had Heather send me her food journal for a week prior to our call.  And we were able to uncover three reasons why she is gaining weight instead of losing weight.  

The good news is the last time I checked in with her, the weight had started to come off.

I’m so excited for you to listen to this, let’s jump into my on-air coaching call with Heather.

Welcome to episode 47.

I touched on the core principle of Chinese medicine in episode #43.  In that episode I talked about how the guiding principle of Chinese medicine is to always strive for balance.

But specifically what do we try to balance?  You hear me tossing around the terms qi stagnation, qi deficiency, blood deficiency, yin deficiency, what do these all mean?  

In today’s episode, we are going to talk about the four substances, Qi, Blood, Yin and Yang. 

These four substances power your body by working together.  When one of them is out of whack, it will affect the rest.  

Let’s dive in and find out why they’re important and how they affect your balance.
