    How To Choose The Right IVF Clinic

    How To Choose The Right IVF Clinic

    Dr. Marc Sklar joins us today as we're digging into how to choose the right IVF clinic and optimize your success
    As you know we take a functional approach to fertility so you can either “get" pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the clinic you can increase your chances of success.
    However, you have may have come to that place in your journey that IVF seems like your next logical step.
    Because you have already done these three (3) steps with your partner:
    - Identified the stressors using functional testing such as food sensitivities, gut infections, environmental toxins, mental emotional triggers and structural (i.e. pinched nerve) and had your blood chemistry review using functional reference ranges (to catch any missed healing opportunities).
    - Addressed the imbalances by making the targeted changes to your diet and lifestyle (this will take a minimum of six (6) months). Including retesting to ensure all infections are eradicated.
    - Optimized your body, mind and spirit to get in the best possible health for pregnancy and postpartum period.
    If you haven’t done this yet, I encourage you to check out Functional Medicine 101 to learn how the functional approach to fertility can help you get pregnant naturally.
    I wanted to give you some resources to help you figure out which clinic is right for you.
    I’m excited to welcome Dr. Marc Sklar to the podcast. He is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and trained at the Harvard Medical School, Mind/Body Medical Institute.
    On this episode you’ll learn:
    1) How to choose the right IVF clinic. What to look out for (ie turnover of staff, age limits for treatment, if they are too busy to answer your questions (what this means for you as a patient) and cost.
    2) What lab work you should be asking for before treatment starts (ie HSG, physical exam, anti-sperm antibodies, trans-vaginal ultrasound).
    3) The do’s and don’t of a successful transfer.
    4) Techniques to do at home to improve IVF.

    3 Reasons Why Your IVF Might Have Failed

    3 Reasons Why Your IVF Might Have Failed

    Today we’re digging into 3 reasons why your IVF might have failed.
    I have experienced a failed IVF. After I had my daughter, we waited one year and then did a frozen embryo transfer. I was determined to have my kids close together. Like really determined! Unfortunately it did not work. We had to go on a list for a separate donor and had our son, three years later.
    I had no idea that there were specific steps I could take to improve my success with IVF and donor eggs.
    Before you go through another round of IVF lets take a targeted functional approach to WHY it’s not working in the first place. You’ll learn my top three reasons why your IVF may have failed.
     
    This episode is for you:
    You have experienced a failed IVF treatment
    You are planning another IVF treatment
    You‘re not sure what to do to optimize your success
     
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) Missed physical and emotional stressors. These cause inflammation in the body and negatively impact hormones. We discuss specific steps to help with diet, environmental toxins, infections, and chronic stress so that you can reduce inflammation and prepare your body for a baby.
    2) Missed healing opportunities. We discuss low vitamin D, thyroid dysfunction, long-term hormonal birth control use, blood sugar imbalance, chronic stress, over exercising, under fueling, obesity and trauma so that you can get to the bottom of why it’s not working.
    3) Following generalized recommendations. These may have worked for someone else – but is it right for your body? Diets such as Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Whole30. Taking heaps of supplements that may be harmful for your fertility. Self-prescribing doesn’t work. You’ll figure out how to take a personalized targeted action plan that is right for “your" body so that you can improve your preconception health.

    How to Detox Heavy Metals to Improve Fertility

    How to Detox Heavy Metals to Improve Fertility

    Wendy Myers joins us today as we’re digging into heavy metals and how they can impact your fertility.
    We are exposed to over 85,000 chemicals in our environment. These chemicals negatively impact hormones and ultimately fertility.
    Specifically, exposure can negatively impact sex hormone production in men and women, contribute to irregular menstrual cycles, reduced testicular function and more.
    Exposure can include cigarette smoke, air pollution, plastics, tap water, ingesting fish and/or shellfish with mercury, rice which may contain arsenic just to name a few!
    All of us have some degree of heavy metal exposure, but some people are more sensitive to these heavy metals than others. 
    In our Couples Coaching program one of functional tests we have access to is the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test. A Hair Mineral Analysis assesses your mineral levels and toxic heavy metal levels that are being eliminated into the hair. So many of us are eating the healthy nutrient dense diet and are well fed but undernourished, because our body is not absorbing the minerals.
    Let’s dig into how to minimize our exposure and balance our hormones.
    I’m excited to welcome Wendy Myers to the podcast. She is a detox expert, functional diagnostic nutritionist and NES Bioenergetic Practitioner
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) The reasons that heavy metals accumulate in our bodies (ie missing nutrients for detoxification, mineral deficiency)
    2) We discuss the top 4 heavy metals that cause hormonal balance (ie Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Arsenic).
    3) Strategies to help detox. (ie sauna, supplements – binders to remove toxins, the benefits of coffee enema and more).

    How to Ask for Support When You are TTC

    How to Ask for Support When You are TTC

    Elyse Ash joins us today as we’re digging why support is so important during the fertility journey.
    When I was on my fertility journey – I thought I could do it all by myself.
    Because I was a strong woman, right?
    I didn’t need anyone else.
    I wasn’t crying everyday.
    So therefore I was fine?
    But I wasn’t.
    I was busy thinking about what I would do if it didn’t work.
    I was worried that I would bother someone with my sad news.
    I was so guarded, that I didn’t allow myself to feel all the feelings, because I thought if I was vulnerable I would crumble into a big heap and never get up again.
    No one really understood what I was going through. It wasn’t their fault; they just didn’t get it.
    And while I watched my friends get pregnant so easily, I pretended I was just fine.
    What I know for sure… is that support would have helped me cope in a much more positive way.
    We don’t need to go through this journey alone.
    It is not a sign of weakness to ask for support. It is brave.
    Today I’m welcoming Elyse Ash from Fruitful Fertility. She is the founder of Fruitful Fertility a mentorship community for women going through the fertility journey.
    On this episode you’ll learn:
    1) Why is connection so important during infertility (especially during COVID).
    2) What type of support may be more harmful than helpful (ie family, friends, social media)
    3) What if we feel resistance to support (why this is a sign to dig deeper)
    4) Why it is important to get support from someone on the other side of the struggle.

    What You Need to Know About the Elimination Diet if You are TTC

    What You Need to Know About the Elimination Diet if You are TTC

    Sarah Clark and Brandy Buskow are digging into why an elimination diet is essential when trying to conceive.
    The first place we start with the couples in our Fab Fertile Couples Coaching Program is the elimination diet.
    It is the gold standard to figure out if you have a food sensitivity.
    We have BOTH partners do the elimination diet (it is not just about you changing your diet). It takes two to have a baby!
    And while the majority of couples that I speak with tell me they are eating a “clean” diet, most have not done the elimination diet.
    A food sensitivity is a stressor on the body and must be addressed (we see so many people get this wrong).
    If your body is mounting an immune response to your favourite foods, this causes inflammation. When your body is under attack from seemingly healthy foods (or even not so healthy foods) it wants to survive not procreate.
    Figuring out the diet that is RIGHT for you is essential when you are trying to conceive.
    This episode is for you:
    If you have tried making changes to your diet but didn’t notice any improvement - so you gave up.
    You’re already dairy and gluten free and so is your partner - but you are still not pregnant.
    You have made all the changes to your diet but your partner is still eating his regular diet.
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    1) Is your infertility a symptom of something else going on in your body (Hint – digestive issues, skin problems, mood problems, joint issues and autoimmunity are ALL clues).
    2) What is a leaky gut and why this matters if you are TTC.
    3) Which foods to avoid during the elimination. How to reintroduce the foods (this part is crucial)
    4) Which foods will you eat (it is NOT about starving or drinking green juice).
    5) How to commit and actually start the elimination diet. Gluten light/dairy light do NOT work.
    6) Supplement recommendations and lifestyle strategies to support you during elimination diet.
     
    Step by step guide to the elimination diet to optimize your fertility. Check out the Fertility Preparation Program - 10 Day Elimination Diet (includes chef prepared receipes/meal plan/grocery shopping list) - https://fabfertile.com/product/fertility-preparation-program/

SpellboundYogi ,

The best fertility podcast!

I think I’m on my second round of listening to all podcasts! So much valuable info, so inspiring and empowering.
Thank you for what you’re doing!

Angel Cur ,

Already Helped Me So Much!

Sarah's podcast has been one of the only things to get me through the past month since getting my fertility diagnosis. I listen to an episode every day and love how so many of her guests are renowned in their field. Sarah's knowledge and personality makes the podcast enjoyable while also being very educational. This podcast is super beneficial even if you are not TTC and want to be healthier! I wish I would have found this podcast 2 years ago when I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto's but I am so thankful I can listen to it now.

canuckindc ,

Learning so much!

I can not recommend this podcast enough a I have learned so much about my body and my fertility. Do yourself a favor and listen to one episode that grabs you, knowledge is power and you won’t regret it.
