Today on the show we are talking about infertility, and specifically how to improve the chances of natural conception through food, nutrition and lifestyle changes. I know many people, including some very close family members who have struggled or are still struggling to conceive. Luckily, my husband and I got pregnant fairly quickly, however, we know people who have gone through painful treatments, hormones, medications and one heartbreak after another, so my intention with this podcast is never to open wounds or make someone feel guilty. I did this interview to show people that there is something they might not even know available and works, which is nutritional and lifestyle changes. Unfortunately, the conventional medical community is not educated about this, so I hope this will shed some light and this message will get to the people who need to hear it. Since this is an extremely private and sensitive topic it is hard to tell someone you know is struggling to conceive what you’ve learned, instead just forward them this episode and say something like: “You know I love you dearly and want to see you happy, I’ve come across this show online and wanted to share this with you, I think you’ll like what they talk about. Free free to pass that along”. Remember, you will never truly know how it is to be on the other side, and if you really want to help do that with kindness, empathy, and compassion.
