    The Functional Medicine approach to infertility with Sarah Clark

    Welcome to the Fertility Foundations podcast with nutritional therapist, Functional medicine practitioner and coach Sandra Greenbank.

    This week on the podcast I'm joined by functional medicine practitioner and coach Sarah Clark. She is the author of Fabulously Fertile - Supercharge your Fertility Naturally. Her fertility coaching program, which includes functional lab testing, supports couples to make diet and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby. On Sarah's Get Pregnant Naturally Podcast she shared the with functional medicine and natural fertility solutions we can eventually reverse infertility.

    On this episode we dig deep into why and how the functional medicine approach is so different to the conventional approach to infertility, and also how to understand whether this approach is the right one for you.

    Your Menstrual Cycle, The Fifth Vital Sign with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack

    Your Menstrual Cycle, The Fifth Vital Sign with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack

    Welcome to the Fertility Foundations podcast with nutritional therapist, Functional medicine practitioner and coach Sandra Greenbank. 

    This week on the podcast I'm joined by author,  Fertility Awareness educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, who teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health.
     
    In her new book The Fifth Vital Sign, Lisa debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children by recognizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimization. She hosts the Fertility Friday Podcast, a weekly radio show devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health.
