    Top 2 Things You Need to Maintain Your Fertility Diet || Q&A PART1

    Top 2 Things You Need to Maintain Your Fertility Diet || Q&A PART1

     
    Functional medicine should not be a class or money thing.
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩The top two things you need to commit to finding your right diet.
    🦩The importance of accountability.
    🦩Why you need self-love.
    🦩How willpower is not enough.
    When it comes to following through with things we are much more likely to stick with something when someone else is counting on us.  This is why accountability is so important on our infertility journey.  Both accountability to ourselves and accountability to others is a vital key to our success.
    You need accountability.
    One thing I have found working with women on this journey and from my own personal journey is that we are really bad with self negativity sometimes.  We tell ourselves we are to blame for this, or it is punishment for past mistakes, or we aren’t fit enough. Whatever it is, we tend to talk down to ourselves.  But we have to switch this self-sabotage to a dialogue of self-love with ourselves.  
    I love to hold myself accountable for the things I believe are going to get me to my goal.
    Another thing I address in this episode is willpower.  We are told that we just need more willpower to exercise, more willpower to eat healthily, etc.  But in truth willpower alone is not enough.  We have ingrained habits that we have developed over years and there is emotion tied to many of our eating decisions, and stress plays a role and we can’t just expect to “will” those things away all of a sudden.  Instead, we have to explore and understand our patterns and make slow adjustments.
    We have ingrained patterns that we have to explore and understand.

    How to Improve Egg Quality Before IVF || Q&A PART 2

    How to Improve Egg Quality Before IVF || Q&A PART 2

     
    “The issue with fertility is that we need our whole body and it’s all connected.”
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩Warning signs that we often think are normal.
    🦩The cause of cysts and how to deal with them.
    🦩How to lower your inflammation.
    🦩Dealing with stress.
    In this episode, I dive into what I thought was normal when it came to inflammatory issues.  I had so many warning signs in my teens and twenties.  I thought it was normal for me to look bloated after having certain meals, or I thought it was normal to naturally be smelly. I also always had throat issues and thought it was just “normal” things different people went through. But these are all early warning signs that we need to look at more closely.
    “More women are having cysts because their bodies are so inflamed.”
    Sometimes when we have issues such as these we tend to look at the medical issues, and we go to the infertility doctors all while ignoring the whole-body perspective.  Eating right, and getting our health in order is not an easy thing, but in order to get to the root of the problem, we have to take a closer look at the whole body.  
    “After 8 years of infertility, I got pregnant naturally.”
    We also think that age plays such a role, and while it does, I am an example that age is not the end-all.  I could not get pregnant in my mid-twenties but did get pregnant at 37.  Health plays more of a role than age.
    “Infertility sucks.”

    How to Improve Egg Quality Before IVF || Q&A PART 1

    How to Improve Egg Quality Before IVF || Q&A PART 1

     
    “At the end of the day, it’s your body that has to create the eggs.”
     
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩How to best prepare for IVF.
    🦩Why IVF is not enough sometimes.
    🦩How do you tell if you are intolerant to specific foods?
    🦩Improving your egg quality.
     
    In this episode, I dive into IVF.  We can think that IVF is the end-all answer for us, but we still have to have healthy eggs for a successful IVF. That’s why I highly encourage you, even if you are going for IVF to really hone in on changing your diet and getting yourself to the healthiest state possible.  This can take some time, and while I know we are usually extremely anxious to get started on IVF, it’s better sometimes to give ourselves some time to get healthy before jumping into it.  I recommend at least three months of lifestyle and diet changes before going in for IVF.
     
    “Your health plays an important part in IVF working.”
     
    In addition, I am taking your questions and dive into endometriosis, supplements, and much more.  There are so many questions and sometimes unknowns in the fertility world which is why I love to sit down and help you with a lot of the common questions that can arise when you are on this journey.  From egg health to maintaining your ovulation levels after ovulation we are diving into so much rich content today.  Let’s do this together!
     
    “Our whole body is connected.”

    Boost Your Fertility Naturally & Get Closer to Creating the Family of Your DREAMS

    Boost Your Fertility Naturally & Get Closer to Creating the Family of Your DREAMS

     
    We can do ourselves a huge favor by sometimes sitting down and being still.
     
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩Steps to find your fertility.
    🦩Changing your lifestyle.
    🦩The importance of rest and recovery.
    🦩How the Finding Fertility Program works.
     
    When it comes to your fertility journey it can be overwhelming knowing where to start.  There is so much information out there, and there are many things that contradict each other.  But that doesn’t mean there are no true answers out there because there are.  I really wanted to lay out in this episode some key elements that you have to be doing on your fertility journey.  
    “Shift the mindset.”
    I lay out the beginning steps you need to be taking to adjust your lifestyle, from your mental state to your eating habits, to your physical health.  We think that we have to push ourselves to our limit in order to be healthy and reach our family goals, but in reality that can harm more than it can help.  I talk about finding the balance, and why it is so necessary.
    “Your mindset controls your actions.”
    I also talk about my fertility program and offer some insight as to what it includes how it has helped others and share how it works so that you can better decide if it is a right fit for you.  
    Find ways to love yourself.

    How To Improve Your Chances of Getting & Staying Pregnant Q&A Part Two

    How To Improve Your Chances of Getting & Staying Pregnant Q&A Part Two

    “Fertility is fickle, there is nothing written in stone.”
     
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩Will cysts go away on their own?
    🦩How birth control changes our hormones and fertility health. 
    🦩How your body needs to reset once getting off birth control.
    🦩Dealing with stress and anxiety.
     
    In today’s episode, I took your questions online and answered them so we cover a vast array of topics from ovarian cysts, to supplements, to eating healthy. 
    I know how overwhelming this journey can be but it is truly a matter of three main things, your diet, your lifestyle, and your mindset and I am here to provide you with simple steps you can take to improve each of those things.
    “Focus on the things you can control.”
    We are told so often that our one answer is just on the medical side, and while sometimes that can greatly help us, it’s often not enough.  We have to be making steps in our own lifestyles, we have to take steps to a healthier version of ourselves. 
    I also dive into the effects of birth control, and how we need to detox from it, once we come off it and are ready to try to conceive.  It can affect our hormones greatly and no two of us are the same when it comes to how exactly it affects us.
     “Focus on your diet and lifestyle.”

    Fertility Diet to Improve Egg Quality :: Q&A Part One

    Fertility Diet to Improve Egg Quality :: Q&A Part One

    “Diet is one of the hardest things to tackle next to mindset.”
    Topics Discussed:
    🦩Digging into food intolerance.
    🦩The best tests for intolerances.
    🦩Is water fasting good for us? 
    🦩Managing endometriosis.
    In today’s episode, I am answering your questions on food intolerances and more.  There are many different food intolerance tests and not all are created equal.  I dive into what tests I recommend and think work the best. 
    Then once we get our test results where do we go from there?  It can be overwhelming when you receive your results especially if there are a lot of intolerances that come back from your tests.  But everything doesn’t have to be all at once. 
    We can make small steps towards changing our diet.  Baby steps are okay. 
    Sometimes if we are intolerant to food it will flare right up and we will see external signs, but sometimes our intolerances are more hidden so we have to really take a deep look.  Usually, we see the common inflammatory foods pop up on most tests, but we also see a lot of random foods pop up so it is always good to get thorough testing done.
    “IVF is not a long-term solution to health.”
    I also dive into questions about water fasting, getting the nutrients you need, folic acid, cycles, and much more.  There is no one quick fix, but when we slowly begin to implement the different diet, lifestyle, and mental attributes we can make great strides.

Heather Parady ,

awesome show!

Monica knows her stuff AND makes it fun! Awesome show to beat the overwhelm of such a big topic!

Hlynnes ,

Stumbled upon this amazing podcast

I found this podcast after seeing an IG post from Erin at fertility hope yoga. I figured why not check it out as I’m navigating this journey that I didn’t expect to be this long or difficult. Love that I can listen while I work or multi task (I never have time to read or reading leads to a rabbit hole that’s not safe). Thank you for making this podcast and can’t wait to listen to more of your episodes.

Smalls409 ,

Very good podcast

I love all the topics Monica covers. Very informative. She is very real and says the things as if you were saying it. She’s funny as well! I always enjoy listening to these episodes. Makes the journey a little easier 😌
