How To Intentionally Get Pregnant with Jane Ritz
You know how I'm always talking about the trifecta to getting pregnant? Nutrition, lifestyle and mindset? So many of you ask me for tips and tricks on how to improve your body physically, but no one ever asks me for advice on how to get into the right mindset. Yet, mindset is ⅓ of the pie, a crucial piece of the getting pregnant pie. But how do you get into the right mindset? Is it simply practicing gratitude and meditation? Is it simply just think positively? If you’ve followed me long enough you would know that the answer to that last question is a "no." So today, I have brought a very special guest to the show to talk about getting into the right frame of mind through being present, setting intentions and meditating. Meet Jane Ritz, other wise known as Jane the guide. Jane is an energy healer and sonic meditation expert. Now don’t make the mistake of turning away from this episode and thinking that it’s way too esoteric and "woo woo." There is nothing "woo woo" about this episode because we’re going to be talking about real action steps that you can take to get into the right mindset and I guarantee that you’ve never heard anything like this before.

You're a Perfectionist, me too!
This topic is an especially hard one to talk about because it has to do with my perfectionism because, I like to be perfect all the time. In fact I feel like I have to be perfect all the time. I want to really highlight this today because It’s taking me a super long time to realize that my perfectionism could be standing in the way of my own success. And perhaps you’ll resonate with some of the things that I’m going to talk about so bear with me. And I always say that self awareness is the first step. If you’re not self aware then it’s going to be hard to take action. So I think this episode will apply to a lot of you if not all of you who are listening out there.

How Each Human Emotion According to Chinese Medicine, Can Affect Your Fertility
It doesn’t seem fair but we all know someone who was so frustrated, then says screw it all, I’m going to party like a rockstar this month, eat what I want, do what I want...and they end up getting pregnant. So is there some truth to just relax and it’ll happen? I know so many of you love the tips and tricks but I keep noticing over and over again inside the private group that a lot of you are stuck on the mindset piece. So this is not going to be an episode where I tell you that you can’t feel a certain way because that’s not how I do things. But what’s really interesting is that in Chinese medicine, each emotion is tied to a certain organ system. And each emotion can absolutely have an impact on the functions of each organ system, and ultimately fertility. Links mentioned: Private FB Community Episodes mentioned: Episode 47 Episode 52

You Officially Have My Permission To Stop Worrying About These 4 Things
It’s hard to let things go sometimes- especially when we’re looking for answers. You’re not getting pregnant so CLEARLY it’s something you’re doing wrong, right? Well… no, not always. Sometimes it simply is just the timing... and has absolutely nothing to do with what flavor tea you’re drinking. Yes, you do need to pay attention to lifestyle habits… Yes, you do need to cut certain things from your diet… And HECK YES, you do need to understand your cycle… But still, there are just some things that you can officially toss in the “WHO CARES BUCKET!” And that’s what we’re going to gab about today!

My guest today is Jocey Rodriguez, my right hand person. She has been on show multiple times and if you’re part of our private Facebook group, you certainly have benefited from her expertise. A couple of weeks ago, Jocey and I were discussing cases, and we got on the topic of fertility urban legends that people believe to be true and how we wish these urban legends didn’t spread like wildfire.

How to Take Care of Yourself During Pregnancy and Post-Partum to Preserve Future Fertility
If you’re not pregnant right now I still want you to listen to this episode because here is the thing, setting a solid foundation for a healthy pregnancy and also post-partum, directly impacts your abilities to get pregnant in the future. We have a lot of mamas in the private group that are trying for a second or third child. And while they didn’t have any problems the first time, this time around seems harder. Well, that’s because the kidney energy is a bit more depleted. So while we can’t replenish the kidney energy, we can preserve it better. And how you take care of yourself during pregnancy and post- partum can affect how well you preserve that energy. I will go over in detail: Considerations for diet, exercise and self-care throughout all three trimesters of pregnancy. How to induce labor naturally. The one mistake most women make post-partum and the most important thing you need to do to take care of yourself. Remember, we inherit a limited amount of Kidney energy from our parents. So, the healthier you are, the more you have to pass down to your baby and future generations. Links mentioned: Private Facebook Community

Everything You Need to Know About an Acupuncture Session
I’m going to talk about something I love dearly, and that is acupuncture.

So in this episode, I want to go into detail and: clear up some misconceptions talk about about what a typical acupuncture treatment should look like from beginning to end what you can expect to feel during the treatment and after the treatment. I hope to ease your fears about acupuncture because it is such a powerful tool to help you get pregnant. I don’t want you to stop treatment or have your fears get in the way because of misconceptions, or because someone didn’t take the time to talk to you about what to expect.

Is Infertility Part of Your Identity?
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. I know a lot of organizations are raising awareness this week about this with activities and inspirational stories, and we’re doing the same at the office. But one thing I refuse to do is to use the word infertility and call this a disease. It’s not a disease. Just saying infertility makes me cringe because I do not like that word at all. I avoid it at all cost, like a plague. Every woman is practically fertile, period. But infertility has become an identity for so many women. What you don’t know is that our identify drives the stories that we’re telling ourselves. An identity is created based on some type of experience that we encounter, and we interpret the experience and ultimately form a belief around the experience. Then we craft stories based on this belief that become our identify, and our identity fuels our stories. It’s a loop that goes round and round and round. And it is exactly why in this loop, a lot of self sabotage happens. Links mentioned: Private Facebook Community

Plant-Base Nutrition for Vegetarians with Sarah Kaminski
In today’s episode, I interview Sarah Kaminski. You may remember her from an honor coaching call episode #61. I coached Sarah on how to recover from her most recent miscarriage. And most recently when we talked, I’m happy to report that her hormones levels have improved dramatically I’m just so excited for her because I truly feel pregnancy is just around corner for her. But today, I specifically wanted Sarah to come on the show because Sarah is Certified health coach with a passion for plant-based diet. And today, we’re going to talk all about plant based diet for those of you who are trying to conceive and are vegetarians. Although you’ve heard my spiel about animal protein vs. plant based protein in episode #46, I never try to force or persuade anyone to ditch their vegetarians diets because I’m respectful of the reasons why someone might choose not to eat meat, whether it’s ethical reasons or whatever. But what I’m finding is that a lot of vegetarians, especially those who are trying to conceive do not balance their meals to optimize fertility. And since I’m not a plant-based diet expert, I’ve asked Sarah to help me out and talk about how to thrive on a plant based diet. Don't forget to download Sarah's freebie!

What You Need to Know About Blocked Tubes
Remember the “Now What Series” way back when, I went through the popular conditions and what you can do if you were diagnosed with PCOS, unexplained infertility, endometriosis, High FSH. But I have talked about this one condition. There comes a time on every woman’s fertility journey when you start to get discouraged because nothing you’re doing is working. Many of you will eventually consult a medical doctor, hopefully a Reproductive Endocrinologist. The doctor will run a standard set of bloodwork and do an HSG. HSG is what’s known as the dye test, or hydrosalpingogram. This procedure is useful to look at the uterus and tubes to see if they’re healthy and connected. Many women discover that there are blockages in their tubes after the HSG. So on one hand, it’s a relief to know that there’s an answer as to why things are not happening. But on the other hand, it can feel like your fate is sealed...if the tubes aren’t open, how is the sperm going to get through. Everyone’s situation is different. At the end of the day, you have to do what’s best for you. But today, I want to talk to you about: Common causes of blockages in the fallopian tubes What you can do if you’ve found out that your tubes are blocked. Should you be moving on to medical procedures in this situation Links Mentioned: Private FB Community

How Stress is Damaging Your Fertility - HPA Axis Dysregulation
In our private group, I get this general feeling that there’s so much information out there and it’s hard to figure out who to listen to or what applies to you. But a common theme that I’m sensing is that many people are putting stress on their bodies without even realizing it. If you remember from a previous episode, we went over the idea of the kidney energy reservoir and how genetics, lifestyle choices can seriously impact how quickly we use up the energy in the reservoir. Even though I think people get this concept that if you withdraw from a savings bank without depositing back in, you’ll end up with a deficit...I don’t think the message really hit home because Chinese medicine concepts can be a little abstract. So today I want to approach this from a functional medicine perspective and talk about stress, the different types of stress, and how it seriously damages your HPA axis and therefore can affect your chances of getting pregnant. In this episode, I will: Explain the concept of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis The four common stress triggers that can cause HPA axis dysregulation My top tips on how to rebalance the HPA axis I’ve also created an assessment for you to gauges your risk for HPA axis Dysregulation, and it will quickly give you an idea of where you fall on the spectrum.

[On-Air Coaching Call] I help Sarah Create Her Pathway to Pregnancy™
So today, I want you to meet Sarah. Sarah is a mom to a beautiful little boy and she is trying to conceive for the second time but unfortunately suffered two miscarriages back to back. In this episode, we talk a lot about nutrition because Sarah is a vegetarian and has been for many years. Even though animal protein is my preferred source for proteins, I never ever force anyone to stop being a vegetarian. So don’t worry, I do not try to convince Sarah to switch her eating habits. But I give Sarah a few pointers on how to adjust her diet to boost her fertility. Sarah is super inquisitive. She asked a bunch of great questions that I think you’re going to love hearing the answers to. Some of these questions I see coming up over and over again in our private group, so it’s going to provide clarity for those of you who are confused about certain concepts.
