Today I coach Jodie, who is 38 years old, She’s concerned about low reserve, high FSH, and secondary infertility.  Medication such as letrozole has not worked for her.  

She has already cleaned up toxins around the household, and personal care products.  She took the Nutrition Intensive Workshop a few months ago, but found the Nutri-Sync protocol to be too intensive.

I help Jodie come up with a new fertility plan that she'll follow for the next three months.

Taking a prenatal meant for pregnancy sometimes isn't the most ideal situation.  You might be missing out on certain fertility boosting ingredients.  You might also be taking in too much of a nutrient that you really don't need until you're pregnant.

If you remember Dr. Andrea Jang, she was on my podcast a few months ago.  I adore her.  She is an acupuncturist in California, and recently branched out into the functional medicine world.  

Last time she was on the show, we talked about why conventional blood work and tests don’t always tell the whole story.  And we talked extensively about the thyroid. 

I thought, since I've been feeling a little off lately, why not have my thyroid panels run with Andrea to see if there’s anything that needs attention.

Long story short, I got my results back, and Andrea said I am an under converter of T4 to T3, which is why I feel off. 

So I turn the tables on her today, and she gets to coach me on what my results mean, and what I can do about them.

Expecting life to always turn out the way you want is guaranteed to lead to disappointment because life will not always turn out the way you want it to.

And when those unfulfilled expectations involve the failure of other people to behave the way you expect them to, the disappointment also involves resentment.

No doubt one of the most popular supplements for fertility because it helps with boosting energy production of the cell and therefore can help with egg quality.

It is also a really expensive supplement.  So, with these different variations of CoQ-10, which one is best for fertility so that you get the most bang for you buck?

We’re going to talk about something that’s kind of a difficult topic...and that is eating disorders and how that might affect fertility.

I’ve shared with you before my personal struggles with body image and eating disorder...to say that it’s a struggle is an understatement because it’s painful to be living with negative body image and feeling like you’re the fattest person in the world even though you’re actually very underweight.

But I I want you to know that you’re not alone, and that you’re courageous and brave to acknowledge that you need help.  

Just know that as with anything you will overcome this.  You can beat this.  Take baby steps each day and start getting yourself to your most fertile state.  It might take a few months, it might take a year, but you will get there.  Our bodies are resilient, and amazing.  As soon as you start nourishing it, you’ll already be more fertile than you were yesterday.
