    How To Know If Gluten Needs To Be Avoided When You Are TTC

    How To Know If Gluten Needs To Be Avoided When You Are TTC

    We’re digging into why gluten matters if you are TTC.
    I get this question all the time, “Should I go gluten free if I’m trying to conceive?”
    As you may know, I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency at 28 and had both my kids with donor eggs. Years later I discovered food sensitivities, gut infections and chronic stress were the cause of my infertility.
    I had no idea that gluten was a problem for my health until years later. Looking back the symptoms were there – bloating, dark circles under my eyes (indicator of food sensitivity), acne, dizziness, mood swings, keratosis pilaris (also known as chicken skin on the back of my arms – exfoliation didn’t help) and of course infertility.
    As you may know, we work with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve and premature ovarian insufficiency/failure.
    We see a theme of non-celiac gluten sensitivity with food sensitivity tests coming back with gluten off the charts.
     
    I'm excited to welcome Brandy Buskow back to the podcast.
    Brandy is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.
    She is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Board Certified Functional Wellness Coach and Master EFT Practitioner. She loves supporting women so they can learn how functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease or illness.
     
    In this episode you'll learn:
    1) Why it is important to go gluten free when we are TTC.
    2) Consuming gluten during pregnancy and the potential risks for the child
    3) Difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity
    4) Connection between autoimmune diseases and gluten i.e. Hashimoto’s and Irritable Bowel Disease
    5) Best test for gluten sensitivity

    How To Transition From A Standard Western Diet To A Fertility Diet

    How To Transition From A Standard Western Diet To A Fertility Diet

    We’re digging into how to move from the Standard American/Western Diet to a healthy diet for your fertility.
    Let’s face it, eating a diet that is right for our fertility is confusing.
    Whether it’s fertility superfoods, generalized recommendations about what to eat or avoid for optimized fertility… we may not know where to start.
    However, we all know that eating packaged processed foods is not healthy for anyone – especially if we are trying to conceive.
    Changing to a healthy preconception diet is not about deprivation or eating food that tastes like cardboard.
    It’s about finding the most nutrient-dense foods that actually taste good so that you can prepare for a successful pregnancy.
    And it's not a “diet” – it’s a lifestyle change that literally is life-changing – our clients tell us so!
    You have your WHY, so let’s get started.
     
    I'm excited to welcome Justine Altman back to the podcast.
    Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility... your body is desperately trying to tell you something... focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.
    Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with PCOS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.
     
    In this episode you'll learn:
    1) How to make the change from the standard western diet to the healthy fertility diet/lifestyle
    2) How to set your intention so you stay committed. These changes may be simple but they are not easy.
    3) How to keep it simple without spending hours in the kitchen cooking.
    4) What to look for on labels so you don’t eat the wrong foods.
    5) What to do about emotional eating. How to deal with excuses or lack of motivation
    6) Why it’s important to include your partner in the changes

    Strategies To Help You For The New Year When You Have Low AMH/High FSH

    Strategies To Help You For The New Year When You Have Low AMH/High FSH

    We’re digging into New Year’s resolutions and an action plan for 2022.
    Happy New Year! If you’re like me you probably set some resolutions or I prefer the term intentions.
    Here’s mine (I’m already doing many of these but I like to restate them because they are so important to me):
    - Yoga 2-3x/week
    - Meditate daily and/or visualization
    - Wear my castor oil pack to bed (hello best sleep ever!)
    - Try one new recipe per week. Love me some soup! (Real Plans app is my favourite)
    - Grant myself grace and compassion (daily)
     
    Many of us set a resolution that is not realistic or is even in alignment with our highest self.
    The average person gives up their new year’s resolution by January 19th.
    I know you’re thinking “I’m a type-A, action taker and a doer by nature – I’ll push through”.
    But what if you’re doing things that actually set you back – instead of optimizing your fertility.
    I want to make sure that you don’t waste time in 2022 doing the wrong things that don’t get you closer to your goal of having your baby.
     
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) How to stop wasting time and fast track pregnancy success (hint: it’s not about consuming the latest fertility superfoods or starting fad diets)
    2) Why focusing on the basics shifts the needle faster
    3) This one theme we see with couples and how it can strain your relationship

    04:02- TODAY’S QUESTION: I NEED AN ACTION PLAN FOR 2022 TO HELP IMPROVE PREGNANCY SUCCESS
    When things don’t work we become very skeptical
    “With an action plan, you have got to take action.”
    We need someone to call us out on our own crap.
    The importance of having an open mind and not wasting time
    IVF is being recommended very early
    “If you were in top health, you would be pregnant.”

Two episodes in

I’m currently struggling with secondary infertility and stumbled upon this podcast, as I manifest my next pregnancy & baby. Am now only two episodes in and already have learned SO much that I did not know before. Thank you for providing these resources.

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!

Love this approach!
