    S5E8 How to Maximize Fertility, Why Men’s Health is Equally Important + Exact Labs and Supplements for Preconception

    Are you thinking about starting a family or having another child but don’t know how to prepare your body? Do you want to maximize the healthy “epigenetics” you pass on to your child? Or maybe you’re currently struggling with infertility and need extra support? Elizabeth Wade is a naturopathic doctor who takes an empathetic, highly-individualized, root-cause approach to reproductive health. She offers a refreshing perspective on infertility (why it’s not the end of the story and how “subfertility” can be supported) and provides insights on labs, supplements, and more.
     
    HERE’S THE JUICE:
    Why men’s role in fertility is equally as important as women’s (i.e. male blood markers that can contribute to miscarriage)
    The incredible opportunity you have every 3-4 months to completely change the genetic expression of your DNA for healthier outcomes and babies
    The importance of folate for both women AND men!
    The difference between infertility and “subfertility” – only 2% of people are considered sterile
    The importance of “belief hygiene” and nervous system support in preparing for pregnancy
    All about the tubal, pelvic, and cervical factors in infertility
    How to understand labs for fertility and the exact blood panel Elizabeth recommends for preconception
    Should you test your AMH or can it cause more anxiety?
    What the ideal preconception diet looks like
    Dr. Wade’s opinion on organ meats and Omega 3 fatty acids
    Why choline is necessary for brain development in babies and how to get enough of it 
    The unique combination of NAC, melatonin and coQ10 for follicle development

Christine Cimabue is a licensed general contractor and holistic construction consultant who believes that the condition of our home can play a huge role in our ability to heal, thrive and feel safe.

    HERE’S THE JUICE:
    All about mold in homes – why it grows, how to find it, how to get rid of it and prevent
    What it means to have a “healthy home” vs a “sick home” and the refreshing idea that a healthy home is NOT perfect
    Why decorating your bathroom with aesthetic touches like wallpaper can be problematic

    The potential downsides of “energy efficient homes” and air-tight environments
    How to effectively monitor humidity and moisture levels in each room with a $5 device to identity and prevent water damage
    Her controversial opinion that basements should actually NOT be finished and what to do if you currently have a finished basement
    Why LED lights can be overstimulating to our nervous systems & what to use instead to support your circadian rhythm
    The affordable tool that helps to prevent and avoid potential leaks from your appliances
    The key to renovating old homes with healthy materials (like KD versus green lumber)

    Do you notice the same patterns keep coming up with your partner or friendships? Do you find yourself afraid of conflict – avoiding hard, but necessary conversations? Are you struggling with creating the space to feel your emotions instead of numbing them? Krista Williams is a coach, podcast host, and close friend who shares how the “mother wound” shows up in our social dynamics and the way we feel safe in the world, why codependency extends far beyond our partner, and the impact of Internal Family Systems (IFS) also known as ‘parts work’ on getting in touch with your inner mother.
     
    HERE’S THE JUICE:
    What the “mother wound” is and how it is crucial for developing female friendships & feeling safe in the world
    Why codependency stems from a desire for safety, stability, and connection in intimate relationships
    How using internal family systems (IFS) can help us hear our true “inner mother” who has acceptance for all parts of us
    How to recognize your inner voices like the critic, perfectionist, child, and rebel
    The challenges of adjusting to different versions of yourself, especially as we change and grow in the context of long term relationships
    Exactly how to create space to feel your emotions and the questions to ask yourself to start processing them
    The power of curiosity & asking questions in supporting your friends to come to their OWN conclusions, instead of going into fixer mode
    How a darkness retreat taught Krista how to self regulate and process her emotions for the first time
