The impact of insulin on fertility and why you haven’t been tested.
Have you actually been tested for your risk of miscarriage? My guess is no. In this solo episode, I introduce you to the impact that insulin has on ovulation, fertility, and miscarriage. Insulin can be elevated in women with PCOS or who struggle with weight management and blood sugar. This hormone is far from benign in the conversation on fertility and impacts a woman’s chance of ovulating and blocks implantation through unique newly-discovered mechanisms. This episode is a must-listen for women who are in the preconception phase, have struggled with miscarriage, or are deep in a fertility journey.
I introduce my new course, Fast Tracked Fertility which is open for enrolment. This live training course will help women create their own fertility plan over a 4-week boot-camp-style intensive. You can learn more about the program and sign up here. https://fasttrackedfertility.com/signup
The B******t Free Diet for PCOS. We’re not kidding.
Women with PCOS have probably been told one way or another that they need to eliminate certain foods. Gluten? Dairy? Inflammation? Legumes? Sugar? But what, if any of this, is actually true?
In this episode, I sit down with Melissa Groves, a registered dietitian, and nutritionist who specializes in helping women with PCOS feel in control of their symptoms through nutrition. We both have an evidence-based background in PCOS, and walk you through the studies on nutrition and what the research actually says. Spoiler: you probably don’t have to take out the foods you’ve read online.
We work hard to bust the “elimination” myth and share which foods we should be INCLUDING as part of a well-rounded approach to PCOS and insulin resistance in women.
Melissa offers unbiased information on Instagram to help women make better and more informed choices about nutrition and PCOS. YOu can find her at https://www.instagram.com/the.hormone.dietitian/
Is your subconscious sabotaging your progress? The importance of rewiring our childhood imprints for a happier life.
Where did you learn about money? Relationships? Sex? Did you learn the world was safe? Full of abundance? Your oyster? In this special episode, I spend time with my current mindset coach Adele Tevlin and we dissect how the imprints about the world that we learn between 0 to 7 years of age shape our reality and how willing we are to show up as our most confident and full selves. I share my own “discoveries” after working through this process with Adele and she teaches us how to start to unpack how our upbringing shapes our reality.
Adele offers mindset training to women that I highly recommend (no affiliation other than that I adore her and her programs). You can learn more about her next course offering at www.ceoblueprint.co/masterclass and find her on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/adele_wellness/
The 3 entrepreneurial-mindset skills women need for better health.
Women who are successful and powerful entrepreneurs have a few things in common and three of these mindset-habits are vital for all women to achieve better health. In this episode, I give you three new ways to think about your health and “health infrastructure” that borrow skills from successful entrepreneurial women. Women who run companies or who are in leadership roles know the value of their time, their team, and how to leverage resources to move their vision forward. I share how you can adopt these go-getter style practices into your daily life to achieve better health.

Is your diet ruining your thyroid?
Your thyroid is responding moment to moment to your life, nutrition and your body’s needs and dieting (especially when women restrict major nutrients) puts stress on this vital metabolic system. In this episode I interview Dr. Sarah Vadeboncoeur, a Naturopathic Doctor focuses on thyroid and metabolic health in women and whose mission is to help women live happy and energetic lives (without developing a terrible relationship with food). We cover the foundations of good thyroid health, and how your daily choices can support or hinder thyroid function.
Put your oxygen mask on first. How the health of the mother impacts the entire family unit.
When Dr. Whitney Young suddenly became a widow with two young children she realized that her health needed to be a priority in order to show up as the parent she truly wanted to be. She now works with families and moms to work through hard moments, phases, and years to encourage resilience, self-care, and thriving children. In this episode we share some of our hard-mom-lessons, talk about the importance of the health of our women, and practical self-care steps (that don’t include going to the spa). Whitney’s passion for creating peaceful and resilient families is clear in her message and her story. This is a vulnerable episode about how hard parenting is and how to overcome and rise above those hard moments. Whitney hosts a Facebook group Graceless Guilt to support parents in their journey.
