Welcome to day#3 of our Mini-Series on the impact of stress on fertility.
If someone told me that my premature ovarian failure/insufficiency diagnosis was related to food sensitivities, gut infections, thyroid imbalance, blood sugar imbalance, and chronic stress…I probably would have been shocked.
When I was diagnosed with POF/POI almost 20 years ago – no one was talking about this.
My only hope for children was donor eggs. The doctors told me so.
And unfortunately, this is still the same standard advice 20 years later.
That is why I have devoted my time to work with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, POI/POF, and DOR.
Because although you may have been told that donor eggs are your only option unless the biochemical stressors are addressed – major healing opportunities are routinely are missed.
There is a reason WHY it’s not working and when we address the root cause we can get pregnant naturally.
In this episode you’ll learn:
1) How biochemical stressors impact our fertility and how to address the imbalances so that we can get pregnant naturally
2) Why focusing on your diagnosis can set you back and how to fast track your success
3) Which diet and lifestyle factors can help improve your chances of pregnancy success
