    Using Yoga to Deal With the BS of Infertility with Erin McCullough from Fertility Hope Yoga

    When I first started off with yoga I hated it, I struggled with sitting still, and my mind fought it.  Along my journey as I continued practicing it, things finally hit for me and I saw yoga’s ability to transform my thinking, and how it allowed me to deal with difficult situations and difficult people in my life in a healthy way.In this episode I sit down with Erin, founder of Fertile Hope Yoga.  She explains how yoga allows us to open up emotionally, and how it healed her after growing up being an unwanted child.  She talks about the flow our bodies are able to get into both the physical and mental working together to shower out love and peace around us.Yoga’s ability to help our mindset cannot be expressed enough.  I also share my own hesitations and what happened when I finally “gave in” to yoga and embraced it. Topics Discussed:How yoga is much more mental than physical.Yoga and its ability to open us up.How yoga can reshape our mind.Yoga has the ability to keep us mentally on track during our infertility journey. -- Quotes:“You don’t have to look like or be anything to access yoga.”“The magic is it allows you to show up without judgement.”“You have to get really vulnerable to leave the unsafe places.” -- Connect with Erin:Website: https://fertilehopeyoga.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fertilehopeyoga/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fertilehopeyoga/Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/fertilehopeyoga/_created/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/fertilehopeyoga?reload=9 Connect with us!🦩Download your FREE 3 Things that can make all the difference in helping you get & stay pregnant here: https://www.findingfertility.co/perfectfertilitydiet 🌺 Get Steps Closer to Getting & Staying Pregnant with a Personalized Health Coaching:https://www.findingfertility.co/FertilityHealthCoachingInstagram: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityIG TikTok: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityTikTok  🍍HELP SUPPORT THE SHOW 🍍 You can shop for your favourite fertility support products over on:Seeking Health:https://bit.ly/FFSeekingHealth & Amazon:http://bit.ly/FindingFertilityAmazon   🎙 Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform:⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Apple: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYAPPLE⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Google Play: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYGOOGLEPLAY⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Stitcher: http://bit.ly/FindingFertilitySTITCHERSpotify: https://spoti.fi/3eHuAKZ⁠ 🍍 Anything written or said about health and diet are my opinions, that I have formed over the years, through trial and error, study, reading, listening and observing.

    How to Reverse Premature Ovarian Failure with Sarah Clark from Fab Fertile

    The conventional method of solving infertility leaves much to be desired.  Often a blanket approach is used and everyone is shoved into IVF treatment without taking a further dive into what is really going on with each individual.  In this episode I sit down with Sarah Clark and we discuss why the holistic approach is so important to getting pregnant.  In addition, we talk about the alarming increase of infertility in both male and females and the impact that may have on future generations.  We dive into food and inflammation and how both have dramatic effects not only on our infertility, but on our overall health and wellness, and how those traits can be passed on to our children if we don’t take action to become healthier versions of ourselves.  You don’t want to miss this deep dive in all things fertility with Sarah Clark. Topics Discussed:How the traditional infertility system looks at infertility.The societal rise of infertility.How your work affects your infertility.Should you quit your job when dealing with infertility? -- Quotes:“You are in charge of your health.”“We don’t realize how sick we are before we dive into fertility.”“I don’t think people realize their 40 or 50 hour work week is having a huge impact on their fertility.”“You don’t have to accept every invite.” -- Connect with Sarah Clark:Website: https://fabfertile.com/Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/get-pregnant-naturally/id1329414094 Connect with Monica ::🦩Download your FREE 3 Things that can make all the difference in helping you get & stay pregnant here: https://www.findingfertility.co/perfectfertilitydiet 🌺 Get Steps Closer to Getting & Staying Pregnant with a Personalized Health Coaching:https://www.findingfertility.co/FertilityHealthCoachingInstagram: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityIG TikTok: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityTikTok  🍍HELP SUPPORT THE SHOW 🍍 You can shop for your favourite fertility support products over on:Seeking Health:https://bit.ly/FFSeekingHealth & Amazon:http://bit.ly/FindingFertilityAmazon  🎙 Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform:⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Apple: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYAPPLE⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Google Play: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYGOOGLEPLAY⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Stitcher: http://bit.ly/FindingFertilitySTITCHERSpotify: https://spoti.fi/3eHuAKZ⁠  🍍 Anything written or said about health and diet are my opinions, that I have formed over the years, through trial and error, study, reading, listening and observing.

    PMS & How it Can Be Affecting Your Fertility with Lisa from Fertility Friday

    PMS & How it Can Be Affecting Your Fertility with Lisa from Fertility Friday

    When it comes to PMS, we have come to a point where we accept whatever it throws at us.  We deal with pain, aches, cramping even when it is extreme because we have begun to believe that is normal.  But PMS pain especially when it is intense is not normal. So how do we evaluate whether or not our PMS is normal or if we need to re-evaluate it.  In this episode I sit down with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack as we discuss what a normal healthy cycle looks like and what we should begin to evaluate if our cycle looks different.  We also dive into how health, exercise, sleep and what we eat play so much of a role not only in our infertility journey but in how our body’s respond to and make hormones. We have to learn how to listen to our bodies and recognize when something is off based on us, rather than what someone else, or even society tells us.    Topics Discussed:Pain during PMS.Acknowledging the cyclical nature of the menstrual cycle.The effects of stress on our hormones.The importance of sleep. -- Quotes:“Pain during your period is not normal.”“There is a time when we need to step back and take care of ourselves.”“We think of situational stresses, but there are also chronic stresses.”“Excess of sugar causes stress.” -- Connect with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack:Website: http://thefifthvitalsignbook.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fertilityfriday/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FertilityFridays/Twitter: https://twitter.com/fertilefridayPodcast on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/fertility-friday-radio-fertility/id953371091?mt=2--Connect with us! 🦩Download your FREE Your 3 Step Guide to Improving Your Chances of Getting and Staying Pregnant: https://www.findingfertility.co/perfectfertilitydiet 🌺 Get Steps Closer to Getting & Staying Pregnant with a Personalized Health Coaching:https://www.findingfertility.co/FertilityHealthCoaching Website: https://www.findingfertility.co/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/findingfertility/TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@findingfertility?source=h5_m 🍍HELP SUPPORT THE SHOW 🍍 You can shop for your favourite fertility support products over on:Seeking Health:https://bit.ly/FFSeekingHealth  Amazon:http://bit.ly/FindingFertilityAmazon   🎙 Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform:⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Apple: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYAPPLE⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Google Play: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYGOOGLEPLAY⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Stitcher: http://bit.ly/FindingFertilitySTITCHERSpotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0BMtwCvdyR4aJyfSfcKh6i 🍍 Anything written or said about health and diet are my opinions, that I have formed over the years, through trial and error, study, reading, listening and observing.

    Should You do the Elimination Diet or Food Sensitivity Test?

    Should You do the Elimination Diet or Food Sensitivity Test?

    Hello BeautifulWhen it comes to food sensitivity tests I know it can be a big investment, not just financially, but also an investment of time.  It is very important rather than just jumping from diet to diet trying to figure out which one works for you.  We can often play guessing games with infertility diets and the food sensitivity tests help us stop the guessing and finally figure out what works best for us.In addition, when we figure out what triggers us, we begin to feel so much better as we learn to eliminate all the foods that our bodies are not agreeing with.  I break down how to begin an elimination diet because I know it can feel overwhelming when we are faced with all the foods we need to stay away from.  But it’s a slow journey and doesn’t have to be done all at once.  Topics Discussed:Why do a food sensitivity test?What food sensitivity tests entail.How to break down changing your diet so it’s not overwhelming. -- Quotes:“Not all food sensitivity tests are created equal.”“These diet changes can become a new lifestyle.” -- Connect with us!Website: https://www.findingfertility.co/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/FindingFertilityInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/findingfertility/Baby and Me Journal: https://www.findingfertility.co/infertilityjournalAmazon Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/influencer-77328ce4Email: me@mymindfulme.com Subscribe to us on:iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-infertile-diagnosis/id1467058429Spotify: Stitcher: https://www.findingfertility.co/infertilitypodcastYoutube: Google: https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/Iqqdhvzt4bwex3iziweaxz77ewu-- Connect with us!🍍🦩Download your FREE 3 Things that can make all the difference in helping you get & stay pregnant here: https://www.findingfertility.co/perfectfertilitydiet 🌺 Get Steps Closer to Getting & Staying Pregnant with a Personalized Health Coaching:https://www.findingfertility.co/FertilityHealthCoaching  Connect with Monica over on Instagram: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityIG TikTok: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityTikTok   🍍HELP SUPPORT THE SHOW 🍍 You can shop for your favourite fertility support products over on:Seeking Health:https://bit.ly/FFSeekingHealth & Amazon:http://bit.ly/FindingFertilityAmazon   🎙 Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform:⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Apple: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYAPPLE⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣Google Play: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYGOOGLEPLAY⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Stitcher: http://bit.ly/FindingFertilitySTITCHER 🍍 Anything written or said about health and diet are my opinions, that I have formed over the years, through trial and error, study, reading, listening, and observing.
