    Empowering Women on Their Fertility Journey with Dr. Kara and Dr. Hillary

    Empowering Women on Their Fertility Journey with Dr. Kara and Dr. Hillary

    This week, Ciara welcomes Board certified Natural Fertility Specialists, Dr. Kara and Dr. Hillary, founders of Cultivate Fertility. They share over 30 years of clinical experience and work with women to optimize their reproductive health at every stage of life using science based and holistic treatments. They discuss how fertility is not a one size fits all approach, what major factors of infertility we may be overlooking such as limiting beliefs and stress, the 6 Core Principals they use at Cultivate Fertility, and why taking pristine care of yourself is the best thing you can do both for yourself and your fertility. 


    In this episode, you will learn more about:


    How Dr. Kara and Dr. Hillary each got into the field of medicine, and their personal journey with fertility. The times that we feel are the most doom and gloom can really be a lesson about our own bodies and teach us so much about our health. Stress is a huge factor of why so many women struggle with fertility, yet it’s often brushed under the rug or not talked about at all. How PCOS, hormonal imbalances, and blood sugar all play a role in our fertility and overall health. Limiting beliefs and negative self talk can stop us from taking the action we need to focus on our health. More about Cultivate Fertility, and the types of programs and resources that Dr. Kara and Dr. Hillary offer.  When we cultivate our own health, we impact generations to come. The work we do around our fertility can have an impact on the baby’s nervous system and health. The six core principles that Cultivate Fertility uses as a modality to make sure their approach is whole: soothe, nourish, protect, prevent, hydrate, circulate.

    Life Is Tough, So Drop The “I Can't” And Find A Way To Win

    Life Is Tough, So Drop The “I Can't” And Find A Way To Win

    Ciara posted a picture of her first gym class back, and it lit a spark for the conversation this week. She may be a little slower right now or not able to do that extra push-up, but she feels great in her body and has kept a healthy weight. This year, many people have found themselves in a very difficult spot with much uncertainty and stress. Our response to this may have been to try and numb ourselves with food and alcohol, or even just to let our exercise and relaxation fall to the wayside. This week, Ciara discusses why this is the time where our habits matter most. When we put ourselves first, we build trust in ourselves and confidence in our ability to win. She shares a few success stories from her VIP program that will inspire you to know if they can do it, so can you.


    In this episode, you will learn more about:
    When the pandemic hit, many people relied on unhealthy coping mechanisms.Workouts are not the only way to lose weight, and that belief keeps you stuck.Don’t discount what you can do during a very busy and stressful time.It’s the routine and consistency that matters.Oftentimes we make it way harder than we need to. There’s always a way to win.As a single mother and busy entrepreneur, Ciara knows that it is her personal responsibility to stay healthy so she has energy for herself and those around her that depend on her.Yes, there is no guarantee in life, but you can reduce your risk factors and you can make yourself harder to kill.What can you do right now to help yourself feel better?When you are in the weeds, you pull yourself out. When things are crazy and you invest in yourself, everything will be better.When you decide you will take impeccable care of yourself, it builds trust in following through.Examples of a few of Ciara’s inspirational VIP clients that realized the power and inner strength they have.

    Weight Loss, Hormones, and The Missing Link

    Weight Loss, Hormones, and The Missing Link

    This week, Ciara continues the conversation on weight loss and offers up a recording from her Masterclass. She talks about the two most important hormones when it comes to weight loss, why we get cravings and how to handle them, insulin resistance, blood sugar stabilization, and the missing link that is crucial for sustainable and long term success. 
    In this episode, you will learn more about:
     The importance of insulin and cortisol when it comes to losing weight, storing fat, and balancing blood sugar. What causes cravings and how do we stay on track when we have them? Losing weight is an inner battle as much as an outer one. Your relationship with food directly correlates back to your relationship with yourself. Why is hormone balance important for weight loss? What insulin sensitivity is and three tips for balancing your blood sugar. How muscle mass plays a role in insulin sensitivity. Some practical ways to create a morning routine that will set you up for success. How does our gut microbiome play a role in keeping us healthy and maintaining our weight? Consistency matters more than perfection. Taking it easy on yourself doesn’t mean giving into every craving or throwing aside your values when things get busy. In fact, it means doubling down on your self care when you need it most.

    Weight Loss — It's Never About Food

    Weight Loss — It's Never About Food

    As Ciara reflects upon her recent birthday, she speaks about a feeling of pride for the hard work and dedication she has put in towards her own healing journey. This brings up the topic of worthiness, and that you don’t need to wait for things to be perfect or for life to settle down to begin your wellness journey. In fact, that is the time that you need it most. Ciara opens up about battling and overcoming her own eating disorder, and how she created a lifestyle that is based upon making choices that lead her to show up healthily and happily for herself and others. Whether you are looking to lose weight or just begin healing your hormones, the first step is knowing you are worthy of putting yourself first and keeping your personal promises.
     
    In this episode, you will learn more about:
    We often see the finished results of someone’s health journey, but there is so much growth that can go on behind the scenes. Ciara had done (and continues to do) a ton of inner work, hiring coaches, and learning to let go of old practices that did not serve her.Ciara developed an eating disorder in her 20’s that caused her to feel much shame and stress. She speaks about how she overcame it from an emotional standpoint first, and how disordered eating is rarely about food and more about control.Weight loss is much more than calories in / calories out.Those that have disordered eating are far from defective — in fact, those are the people that are often perfectionists.Ciara talks about how having a stressful and fast-paced job at a law firm led to some eating habits that were sabotaging the healthy eating she did during the week, and how just two days off could make such a big impact on meeting her wellness goals.The shame that one can feel when engaging in disordered eating can be crippling and isolating.Why restricted eating tends to lead to binging.Ciara explains that although recipes can be great, they can also be a hurdle for people trying to add in healthier items and let go of perfectionistic tendencies.When you treat yourself with love, respect and care you don’t allow other people to mistreat you.Ciara has love for her clients and will be there to help, but if you work with her, know that she is going to call you on BS “I can’t” type stories and limiting beliefs!Find an example of someone who did what you want to do, to show you that anything is possible.When your life is in chaos, that’s the time you want to double down on your own wellness.The first step is knowing you are worthy of health, and getting crystal clear on your boundaries.

Every Woman Should Listen

As a former client of Ciara, it is not surprising to me the wealth of information that she brings to this podcast. Ciara’s advice is sound and reliable and she takes the time to break down exactly why you should be following her every word. She is an expert in her field and her episodes are extremely informative and interesting and she just plain knows what will work for the female body. I listen to episodes over and over again because they are just that good and I’m so excited that she’s opening herself up for the world to hear. Highly recommend!
