If you were like me when I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure I focused solely on the diagnosis.
It was like I had blinders on...I literally did not see any other path...besides what was written/talked about in blogs/forums...about what my diagnosis meant.
I felt very defined by the diagnosis and really quite hopeless.
I did not stop to listen to my body.... to those other health symptoms which for me were yeast infections, fungal rash and acne.
I barrelled ahead full steam to the fertility clinic. As you know I am one of the fortunate ones who had both my kids with donor eggs....but years later my health took a nose dive...and I later discovered my kids have food sensitivities. (which is linked to preconception health - epigenetics!).
This episode is a must listen....if you feel like your infertility diagnosis defines you...or you can't see an alternate pathway.
I started the Get Pregnant Naturally Podcast because I wanted anyone touched by infertility to wake up to the power of Functional Medicine.
On this podcast you'll learn:
How to stop treating the diagnosis and chasing the symptoms.
Why taking a break (I know this can sound scary - but stay with me!) to focus on preconception health makes all the difference and how it can impact postpartum health and the health of your child.
What exactly is metabolic chaos and why is this important for someone struggling with infertility.
How to cultivate patience during the healing process.
