Using essential oils for fertility is a great way to complement whatever you’re already doing as well as reducing stress.   

I’m definitely not an essential oils expert.  I love using them for baths and diffusing them to make my house smell nice.  But when it comes to using oils therapeutically, I had to turn to my good friend Logan Campbell for help.

Many of you may remember Logan, she was my success story interview from way back in episode 20.  

This series was split into two parts.  Today you’re going to hear part 1, which is a basic intro to essential oils, ways to use essential oils, what you need to look for when buying essential oils. 

I do have a freebie for you courtesy of Logan.

It’s a recipe for homemade cleaner and also hand sanitizer.  I’ve used both of these recipes and I absolutely love them. They’re inexpensive to make, good for our hormones because there aren’t any harmful chemicals.  And the smell is amazing.

I know this is always difficult to talk about with our partners- but the truth is 40% of fertility issues come from men.

That’s roughly 1 in 4 couples <<----- And can be anything from low sperm count, motility or morphology.

You may remember episode 55 when I gave an overarching, high level view of male infertility- but today we’re breaking it down into smaller takeaways such as:

-----> The basic overview of sperm production...

-----> The 6 ways to boost sperm quality…

-----> My freebie with a list of common medications and their known effects on sperm count…

It’s like ripping off a bandaid it will sting at first, but the faster, the better. Don’t tiptoe around your partner’s possible fertility issues- only to drag it out and make it that much more painful.

To get pregnant you need an egg and a sperm.  Everyone knows that. But just having an egg is not enough, you need to have a healthy egg.

By now, most of you already know egg quality is crucial for getting pregnant.  Some of you listening are especially anxious because maybe you’re in your late 30s approaching 40, and the term advanced maternal age is everywhere.  Or some of you maybe fairly young but you’ve been told your AMH is really low for your age so that means you don’t have as many quality eggs.  

First thing we gotta do is to have a mindset shifts around egg quality.

No matter what your situation is, I want you to forget everything you’ve read or heard, and know that egg quality can absolutely be improved.  

In this episode you’re going to learn exactly how to improve your egg quality in 90 days.  Why 90 days? Because that’s approximately how long it takes for an egg to make its way from the ovarian reserve to become a mature egg.  During this period of time, you can influence the quality of the egg.

Today’s podcast episode is all about money- or rather deciding which blood work panels and diagnostics are TRULY WORTH the financial investments that come with them.

Today’s episode kicks off a new mini-series I’m doing called, “Where Should I Spend My Money?” For today, we’ll talk about:

----> The standard tests you should ALWAYS ask for…

----> The test to get if you haven’t had your period in 3+ months…

----> When a uterine biopsy makes sense… and when it doesn’t.

----> What tests your partner should be getting...

----> And you’ll get my thoughts on the HSG test, sonograms, laparoscopies…

 

Listen, I know it’s overwhelming just to read that list above… and depending on your insurance or the type of test, you’re probably seeing $$$ all over the place.

But this is important- and with new advice, information and “internet experts” coming from all aspects of your life- I promise this episode will help break it down CLEARLY and CONCISELY so you spend money on the right things at the right time.
