    The Soul of Your Baby is Waiting for You

    The Soul of Your Baby is Waiting for You

    Dr. Emma Brodzinski joins us today as we're digging into shamanic journeying and how this can help when we are TTC.
    We struggle with impatience, uncertainty and want to control the outcome. As a recovering control freak –  as a recovering control freak this sounds familiar to me.
    What if there was a way to know in your heart, that the soul of your baby was waiting? How would you approach this journey differently?
    I’m excited to welcome back to the podcast Dr. Emma Brodzinski. Dr Brodzinski is a therapist working from a shaman perspective.
    What is shamanic perspective? She is a healer, working with energy and spirit.
    Let’s move from pushing and controlling every part of this journey to a quiet sense that the soul of your baby is waiting for you.
     
    In today’s episode you’ll learn:
    1) Shamanic journeying work and how it helps someone struggling to visualize a positive outcome
    2) What are spirit guides and to find your guides.
    3) Spirit animals and the messages they can have for us as we navigate a struggle.
    4) How journey work help us fine-tune our intuition. Plus what emotional and physical pain can mean from a shamanic perspecitive.
    It doesn't matter whether you're 28 or 38. You're already READY to have your baby... you just wish your body would catch you up.
    You may be feeling impatient, frustrated, which leads to you trying to plan and control EVERY aspect to 'make it work'.
    But clinging on tighter to something you want often leads to panic and stress. And we both know that those things don't benefit your fertility journey.
    What if there was another way?
    One where you just knew that it would work out for you?
    Where you could finally relax and stop worrying about timing, planning, and controlling the outcome.
    You'd just know that your child was waiting for you. That the SOUL of your baby - was waiting for you.
    How would the journey look different if you KNEW that your baby really was waiting?
    Would it be easier?
    Give you more trust in the process?
    Help you feel peaceful?
    I’m excited to announce our Step Into Your Power course is OPEN for registration.
    Here’s what you can expect during the 6-week course:
    Week #1 - How To Use Your Intuition Over Your Inner Critic
    We all have an inner critic. The voice inside your head, that unless we train ourselves, can take over our lives and make us feel that nothing will work. You’ll learn how to turn down the volume on the voice in your head so that you can encourage that little voice of wisdom, (otherwise known as your intuition) in order to see a positive outcome.
    Week #2 - Tuning Into The Spiritual Nudges
    Whether you believe in the universe/God/Higher Power - they really DO have the best in mind for you. And if you really knew and BELIEVED this to be true, how would you approach this journey differently? You’ll learn to listen to the spiritual nudges we all have and to dream big so that you can move from overthinking and worry to trusting the process and knowing that your baby is waiting for you.
    Week #3: Reclaiming Yourself
    During tough times it can be easy to lose touch who we are or who we used to be. You’ll learn to gather the pieces of yourself to discover who you are becoming so that you can see a positive future and feel whole again.
    Week #4: Connecting With Nature and Your Spirit Animal
    We live in a world where many of us have lost our connection with nature. Mother nature has great lessons to teach us (if we know how to listen). You’ll learn to connect with your power animal (yes we all have them) so that you can gather a deeper understanding of what this journey means for you. Plus you’ll discover how to add helpers to every room and you’ll begin to listen to your guides who only want the best for you and can help with your fertility journey.
    Week #5: Developing a Spiritual Contract

    What You Need to Know about Gluten and Infertility

    What You Need to Know about Gluten and Infertility

    Dr. Tom O'Bryan joins us today as we’re digging into gluten sensitivity and the impact it has on fertility.
    I have talked about the importance of going gluten free for years.
    As you may know I have non-celiac gluten sensitivity….plus premature ovarian failure.
    I found out the connection too late…as I was fully in menopause.
    If you are still cycling naturally there are steps we can take.
    For me gluten causes all kinds of health issues (bladder infections, sinus infections, yeast infections and lots more).
    Yes we are in the middle of a gluten free craze.
    And not everyone needs to go gluten free, but as my guest Dr. Tom O’Bryan shares in our interview,
    Both partners (yes that’s right!), both partners should go gluten free for at least 3 months (and ideally dairy and processed sugar free too!).
    It’s time to draw the line in the sand.
    Commit 100%.
    Because gluten light does not work!
    I'm excited to welcome Dr. Tom O'Bryan to the podcast. He is a world-renowned expert in the field of gluten-related disorders, Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS), Celiac Disease (CD) and their link to other chronic conditions, including autoimmune disorders and diseases.
    In this episode you'll learn:
    Why it is important for both men and women who are trying to conceive to go gluten free. Studies prove the chances of conception improve.  
    What should you do if you find out you have gluten sensitivity and you get pregnant? Should you re-introduce gluten during pregnancy? What are the risks?  
    If we are sensitive to gluten and then we consume it…how long does it take to heal the gut? What if we are already gluten free and it’s not working…what to do next.  
    Should we test for celiac disease? Is it worth it? We discuss the best tests for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease…hint your conventional doctor’s tests are extremely outdated.

    How To Choose The Right IVF Clinic

    How To Choose The Right IVF Clinic

    Dr. Marc Sklar joins us today as we're digging into how to choose the right IVF clinic and optimize your success
    As you know we take a functional approach to fertility so you can either “get" pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the clinic you can increase your chances of success.
    However, you have may have come to that place in your journey that IVF seems like your next logical step.
    Because you have already done these three (3) steps with your partner:
    - Identified the stressors using functional testing such as food sensitivities, gut infections, environmental toxins, mental emotional triggers and structural (i.e. pinched nerve) and had your blood chemistry review using functional reference ranges (to catch any missed healing opportunities).
    - Addressed the imbalances by making the targeted changes to your diet and lifestyle (this will take a minimum of six (6) months). Including retesting to ensure all infections are eradicated.
    - Optimized your body, mind and spirit to get in the best possible health for pregnancy and postpartum period.
    If you haven’t done this yet, I encourage you to check out Functional Medicine 101 to learn how the functional approach to fertility can help you get pregnant naturally.
    I wanted to give you some resources to help you figure out which clinic is right for you.
    I’m excited to welcome Dr. Marc Sklar to the podcast. He is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and trained at the Harvard Medical School, Mind/Body Medical Institute.
    On this episode you’ll learn:
    1) How to choose the right IVF clinic. What to look out for (ie turnover of staff, age limits for treatment, if they are too busy to answer your questions (what this means for you as a patient) and cost.
    2) What lab work you should be asking for before treatment starts (ie HSG, physical exam, anti-sperm antibodies, trans-vaginal ultrasound).
    3) The do’s and don’t of a successful transfer.
    4) Techniques to do at home to improve IVF.

    3 Reasons Why Your IVF Might Have Failed

    3 Reasons Why Your IVF Might Have Failed

    Today we’re digging into 3 reasons why your IVF might have failed.
    I have experienced a failed IVF. After I had my daughter, we waited one year and then did a frozen embryo transfer. I was determined to have my kids close together. Like really determined! Unfortunately it did not work. We had to go on a list for a separate donor and had our son, three years later.
    I had no idea that there were specific steps I could take to improve my success with IVF and donor eggs.
    Before you go through another round of IVF lets take a targeted functional approach to WHY it’s not working in the first place. You’ll learn my top three reasons why your IVF may have failed.
     
    This episode is for you:
    You have experienced a failed IVF treatment
    You are planning another IVF treatment
    You‘re not sure what to do to optimize your success
     
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) Missed physical and emotional stressors. These cause inflammation in the body and negatively impact hormones. We discuss specific steps to help with diet, environmental toxins, infections, and chronic stress so that you can reduce inflammation and prepare your body for a baby.
    2) Missed healing opportunities. We discuss low vitamin D, thyroid dysfunction, long-term hormonal birth control use, blood sugar imbalance, chronic stress, over exercising, under fueling, obesity and trauma so that you can get to the bottom of why it’s not working.
    3) Following generalized recommendations. These may have worked for someone else – but is it right for your body? Diets such as Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Whole30. Taking heaps of supplements that may be harmful for your fertility. Self-prescribing doesn’t work. You’ll figure out how to take a personalized targeted action plan that is right for “your" body so that you can improve your preconception health.

    How to Detox Heavy Metals to Improve Fertility

    How to Detox Heavy Metals to Improve Fertility

    Wendy Myers joins us today as we’re digging into heavy metals and how they can impact your fertility.
    We are exposed to over 85,000 chemicals in our environment. These chemicals negatively impact hormones and ultimately fertility.
    Specifically, exposure can negatively impact sex hormone production in men and women, contribute to irregular menstrual cycles, reduced testicular function and more.
    Exposure can include cigarette smoke, air pollution, plastics, tap water, ingesting fish and/or shellfish with mercury, rice which may contain arsenic just to name a few!
    All of us have some degree of heavy metal exposure, but some people are more sensitive to these heavy metals than others. 
    In our Couples Coaching program one of functional tests we have access to is the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test. A Hair Mineral Analysis assesses your mineral levels and toxic heavy metal levels that are being eliminated into the hair. So many of us are eating the healthy nutrient dense diet and are well fed but undernourished, because our body is not absorbing the minerals.
    Let’s dig into how to minimize our exposure and balance our hormones.
    I’m excited to welcome Wendy Myers to the podcast. She is a detox expert, functional diagnostic nutritionist and NES Bioenergetic Practitioner
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) The reasons that heavy metals accumulate in our bodies (ie missing nutrients for detoxification, mineral deficiency)
    2) We discuss the top 4 heavy metals that cause hormonal balance (ie Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Arsenic).
    3) Strategies to help detox. (ie sauna, supplements – binders to remove toxins, the benefits of coffee enema and more).

Natural Fertility Advice at its Best

I stumbled across this podcast a few months ago and I love it. I love that it’s focused on the natural route since things like IVF not only scare me but also are not in line with my religious beliefs. I’ve learned a TON from listening and have implemented many things into my own life that are hopefully getting me that much closer to being a mom. Keep the episodes coming!

shtamk11 ,

Very informative!

BB2797 ,
