Why Autism Matters When You Are TTC and How To Improve Preconception Health
May 16, 2022
We’re digging into autism and why this matters when you are TTC.
Focusing on preconception health is important for your health, postpartum period and the health of your children.
I didn’t focus on my health prior to having my children and my postpartum period was rough. Both my kids have food sensitivities, asthma, ear infections, ADHD and more.
It may feel like we need to rush to the fertility clinic to get pregnant ASAP. After all, the fertility industry tells us that we’re too old, our eggs are too old and that the only option for pregnancy success is IVF.
I believe that knowledge is power.
You are in a very powerful place right now to really focus on your health and address missed healing opportunities that conventional medicine may tell you are normal.
We’re discussing the rising rates of autism in children and what may be causing this increase.
Today I'm excited to welcome Luminara Serdar. Luminara is is an autism recovery expert. She’s trained as a scientist in genetics, cell biology and biochemistry, as a functional nutritionist and holistic healer.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- Why would someone who is trying to conceive be concerned about autism? How to increase our chances of having a healthy baby.
- The reasons for the increase in autism.
- The factors that impact autism.
- The role of food sensitivities, gut infections, heavy metals and nutrient deficiencies.
- How genetics impact autism.
- Diet and lifestyle changes to help with autism recovery.
