7 Crucial Questions To Ask Yourself If You’re Trying To Conceive

7 Crucial Questions To Ask Yourself If You’re Trying To Conceive

  If you are trying to conceive and it isn’t happening as easily as you anticipated, tracking down the cause can seem like an endless guessing game. I’ve created this simple list to help you pinpoint exactly what could be preventing you from conceiving, and what to do about it. If getting pregnant is taking longer than you expect, make sure you know the answers to the following 7 questions.   1) Is age a factor?   How to find out: As we age, our ovarian reserve or egg supply ages, too. Studies have shown a decline in egg quantity and quality can start in a woman’s 30s. If your over 30, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have declining egg supply or egg quality, but there are a few tests you can do to find out: Basal follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) test. FSH is the hormone in your body that produces mature eggs in your ovaries. If your FSH levels are too high, it could be a sign that...

How To Accomplish Your Goals Without Losing Steam (Or Self-Esteem)

How To Accomplish Your Goals Without Losing Steam (Or Self-Esteem)

  A real inspiration killer is trying to work toward a goal when you needed that goal to happen yesterday. Or 5 years ago. Whether it be a financial goal, a health goal, or a life goal, if the “getting there” doesn’t feel good, or if you feel desperate for it to happen, you will block any flow of divine creativity, love or abundance, which would help you reach your goal. Let’s face it, setting goals can be stressful. It sounds like a good idea at first, but as time goes by and you’re working your tail off and your progress is not what you expected, or the timeframe changes, or the path doesn’t look anything like what you envisioned, you can start to question yourself. With New Year’s just two weeks away, I think it’s important to address this popular topic of goal-setting, and offer some new insights that will make setting and reaching for your goals a more rewarding and empowering experience.   Try these simple, yet...

This Is Exactly How I Accomplish My Biggest Goals

This Is Exactly How I Accomplish My Biggest Goals

Over the past few years I have developed a New Year’s ritual that has helped me accomplish some of my biggest goals. I’d love to share it with you! 1) Get a blank piece of paper or spiral notebook. 2) Take about 10-15 mins and write down the highlights of 2012. What did you accomplish? What happened to you? Where did you go? Who came into your life? What lessons or skills did you learn? 3) Sit quietly for a moment and let your heart fill with gratitude for all the positive things that occurred in the past year. 4) Now, briefly take into account some of the things that didn’t go as planned or as well as you would have liked and ask yourself, “What did this experience teach me and how can I apply what I learned to 2013?” (Be very kind to yourself in this step and don’t ruminate for too long :-)) 5) Perform a satisfying act of “letting-go.” For example, write down the negative...

To Get What You Want, Ask Yourself This Simple Question

To Get What You Want, Ask Yourself This Simple Question

If you’ve seen me for an acupuncture treatment recently you’ve probably noticed I’ve gotten a little thick around the middle. I’m happy to tell you that I haven’t fallen off my own nutrition program wagon… I’m 4 months pregnant! Becoming pregnant was one of my main goals last year, and it didn’t come as easily as I’d hoped. When a goal or desire doesn’t come easily to me, it forces me to do some soul searching. Which is always a good thing. One of the best pieces of advice I received was from my mom–of course. 😉 She told me to ask myself this simple question in order to make anything I want to happen, happen: What will it take?   This question is genius and does two things: 1) It opens up your mind to the positive instead of focusing on the negative. Your mind is instantly pointed toward possibilities and solutions instead of fixating on the fact that you  haven’t yet reached your goal. 2) This subtle...

Holiday Blog Series: 5 Simple Strategies To Easily Digest Your Food

Holiday Blog Series: 5 Simple Strategies To Easily Digest Your Food

  Around this time of year my patients usually confess to me that they have been indulging in one too many holiday treats — and that their stomach is not as happy as usual.   Here are some quick and easy tips to help your tummy more easily digest your food during this treat-filled time of year. Or anytime of year!   1) Lemon with warm water or apple cider vinegar in the morning. Drinking a mug of warm (not hot) water with fresh squeezed lemon first thing in the morning will enhance your digestive enzymes and warm your Spleen and Stomach Qi (“chee” or energy), both of which will settle your stomach and help it to efficiently digest your food for the rest of the day. You can also try a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar in warm water, which will accomplish the same thing. (Though I prefer lemon. :-))   2) Probiotic. Find an excellent probiotic that is guaranteed to deliver exactly what’s stated on...
