The Surprising Effect Of Sugar On Your Fertility And How To Reverse It

The Surprising Effect Of Sugar On Your Fertility And How To Reverse It

  We all know it’s important to eat a healthy diet, but how important is it for my fertility…really?   If you experience PMS, have an irregular menstrual cycle, are having trouble getting pregnant, or if you’ve been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), my answer is VERY.   Here’s how it works:  When one eats a diet that consists mostly of food from the cupboard instead of food from the fridge, i.e. high glycemic refined carbs and little to no nutrients, one’s blood sugar spikes and drops, spikes and drops, 5-7 times a day, every day.   Each spike requires one’s body to produce insulin to store all the excess sugar, thus causing a sugar crash where one craves more sugar.   Over time, this vicious cycle takes its toll on the pancreas, who produces the insulin, and the insulin receptors, who get overworked and close up shop. This is called insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes.   So how does this effect your fertility?   Spiking your...

Learn This Beyond-Easy But Crucial Technique To Conceive Naturally

Learn This Beyond-Easy But Crucial Technique To Conceive Naturally

  I absolutely love this technique. It’s one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to signal your body it’s time to conceive. And you can do it anytime, anywhere, and no one will ever know.   For all you science nerds out there (takes one to know one) let me explain how elegantly this works.   Your nervous system is divided into two parts, voluntary and involuntary. The voluntary nervous system is in charge of things like moving your arm when you reach for that ovulation test kit. 😉 Or when you slap the snooze button in the morning — thanks voluntary nervous system!   Your involuntary nervous system is in charge of things like telling your stomach to digest your food, telling your fingernails to grow, alerting your immune system to fight off a cold. Our body miraculously performs these tasks daily whether or not we think about it.   Now we’re getting to the good stuff.   The involuntary nervous system is further...

3 Reasons You’re Not Infertile, Even If Your Doctor Thinks You Are

3 Reasons You’re Not Infertile, Even If Your Doctor Thinks You Are

  A lot of women come to me discouraged by their experience with western medicine, particularly when it comes to getting pregnant. While western medicine offers many technologically advanced options these days (that can be even more effective when used in conjunction with Chinese medicine), many women feel they don’t want to go to extreme, unnatural or expensive measures to have a baby. If you’ve been trying and not succeeding to get pregnant and your doctor thinks it’s time for intervention, here are 3 reasons you’re not infertile through the eyes of Chinese medicine:   1) It takes time to create a new environment (or fertile ground) in your body and mind. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views the body as a microcosm of nature.Western medicine focuses on fixing one small part of the body, whereas TCM fixes the entire ecosystem. As it is possible to turn infertile land into fertile land, it is also true within the body. In addition to creating fertile ground in your body, in Chinese...

Are You Afraid To Go Off The Pill?

Are You Afraid To Go Off The Pill?

  You are not alone! Most women I talk to are ashamed or embarrassed to tell me how long they’ve been on the pill. They want to go off of it, but they are afraid their PMS symptoms will get worse (than they already are), their period will be so unpredictable that they won’t know when it’s coming, or their hormones will be so out of whack they’ll be an emotional basket case! (Sound familiar?) In Chinese medicine, the Liver becomes easily stressed thus producing things like irregular periods, horrific PMS symptoms and mood swings. And, yes, you guessed it, one of the ways the Liver becomes stressed is by taking the pill. If you’ve had a gut feeling that you should go off the pill but you’re afraid to, I want to put your mind at ease. Here are 3 reasons why you don’t have to be afraid to go off the pill:   1) Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Every woman should read this book! If you have...
