What You Need To Know About The Elimination Diet If You Are TTC

Today I’m welcoming Brandy Buskow back to the podcast.

We’re digging into why an elimination diet is essential when trying to conceive.

Brandy is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception.

If you are struggling with infertility...your body is desperately trying to tell you something...focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.

She is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Certified Transformational Health Coach and EFT Practitioner.

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 to 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 does NOT work.

6. Supplement recommendations and lifestyle strategies to support you during an elimination diet.
