A thin uterine lining is a common obstacle many face in the realm of implantation challenges. And while conventional medical options are limited, natural medicine has a lot to offer.

“But why isn’t my lining cooperating?!” Often it is due to low levels of certain reproductive hormones, such as estrogen. This is common in women with PCOS or hypothalamic amenorrhea due to the underproduction of hormones. Other potential culprits are medications such as Clomid, insulin resistance, high androgens, scarring, infections, high stress, and growths like adenomyosis or fibroids.

Conventional treatments often involve supplementing estrogen in the form of patches and pills. Sadly, this isn't effective in many cases because some women's bodies can’t absorb it. In addition, blasting estrogen can actually worsen the situation for many women—especially those with estrogen-sensitive growths like fibroids, endometriosis, and adenomyosis. So what’s a girl to do?

Did you know that beef is one of the most powerful commodities on the planet thanks to its amazing protein and high contents of vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, iron, niacin, and vitamin B6?

In an ideal scenario, if you are purchasing beef, it should be organic, pasture-raised, grass-fed, and grass-finished, which means the cow is never enclosed in a pen, is never given antibiotics, and is never fed anything other than the grass on the ground as they freely roam the pasture. However, the reality is that most beef you will find in the grocery store, even in more high-end stores like Whole Foods, is using language to obfuscate your understanding of exactly what you are purchasing. Many brands use labels like “humanely raised” and antibiotic-free to distract you from the fact that it is not organic or grass-fed.

One of the safest alternatives is to purchase your meats from a local farm. Learn more in one of our most recent blog posts through the link below! 👇

Chocolate is a go-to for many women when they get in the mood for a "fix.” Particularly in the premenstrual phase of our cycle, the craving for this dark mistress can easily lead to daily indulgence. But dark chocolate is fine, right? Reasonably low in sugar, not too bad on fat, and loaded with antioxidants. That's the narrative I usually hear in defense of this decadent treat. Boo on me for delivering this news during the holidays (though that was actually part of the plan), but chocolate is definitely NOT your ally if you suffer from hormonal symptoms like PMS, mood swings, fluid retention, constipation, insomnia, and the like. It's especially not good after a medicated IUI or IVF cycle or two (or three, four, five...). Tune into this week's episode to find out why we crave chocolate and why it makes our hormonal hell much much more hellish. Teaser has a lot to do with its nutritional profile and how that mixes with our hormones.

Did you know that dandelion is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium?

It has been used as an anti-inflammatory, and to relieve liver and urinary disorders. It also helps maintain bone health and skincare.

Chinese Medicine practitioners prescribe dandelion tea to help detoxify the liver, eliminate free radicals, and minimize oxidative stress. By neutralizing these free radicals, this tea can help increase immunity and improve overall health and wellness.

We all know that our liver plays a major role in processing a myriad of toxins. As the hot seat of detoxification, the liver acts as the filter through which all things pass. If it is functioning in good order, the liver packages up all the junk that enters our system and helps it find the exit through bowels, kidneys, skin, and breath.

Lesser known is that the liver converts many of our hormones into their active forms (i.e., thyroid) and also cleanses hormone residues from our bodies (i.e., estrogen). It can't do its important work if clogged up, leading to toxic build-up and hormonal imbalances. This is really important because a funky thyroid or an excess of estrogen will start to throw off our fertility.

Collateral damage ranges from issues with ovulation to growth of fibroids or endometriosis, issues with egg quality and implantation. It runs the gamut! Why? Toxins and hormone residues from foods, medications (i.e., IVF…), and life in general, build up and lead to inflammation and free radical damage.

When our liver isn't doing its job, we are aging FAST.

This session is about tuning in and taking your power back. Nadia Murdock is a powerhouse - spiritually, emotionally, and physically. She is not like to give in to fear and knows when to hit pause then something doesn't feel quite right. When asked about how she makes decisions, Nadia refers to how she "felt" in each situation, rather than a swirling list of pros and cons. She focuses on tuning in to get the answers. But that's not all. Nadia knows her work with her care providers is a mutual, respectful relationship. One that should "jive" well. She encourages women to ask questions and seek out the right doctor if something is not working. Nadia's is a story of a long-awaited natural fertility journey, with some complications in her high-risk pregnancy that led to some real soul searching. An encounter with a doctor led her to do a deep dive into black women's experience in pregnancy and childbirth. And what she found was disturbing, to say the least.

Tune in for some much-needed wisdom. 🎙

Not feeling optimal but can’t quite place it? If you find yourself lethargic, foggy, bloated, with skin irritation, or other issues, it’s time to consider how your diet is playing a role. An “elimination diet” is a nutrition-focused method that helps one mark foods that are not helping you by eliminating foods for a certain period of time and then reintroducing them.

Thank you so much @naturna_life for this wonderful interview about "Reconnecting With Your Partner"! To listen to this episode 38, click on this link: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fertility-in-focus-podcast/id1544999680.💕 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ REPOST from Naturna Institute __________________________⁣ Anyone going through the fertility slug can acknowledge the effect it can have on our s*x life. So if you are struggling with s*xual connection as you try to make a baby, then this session is for you. ⁠⁣⁣ ⁠⁣⁣ In this week's episode, we are joined by Dr. Denise Wiesner L.Ac @denisewiesnerlac, an acupuncturist, intimacy coach, fertility expert, and author of Conceiving With Love. She has been featured in Goop, Psychology Today, and many other publications touting the importance of igniting that "flame." Though Denise acknowledges that you don’t need intimacy to make a baby, she believes in leading with love and maintaining a s*xual connection. Denise takes us through typical conversations with her patients that help them re-establish intimacy. She believes that this loving connection is important for everything from baby-making to child-rearing and overall satisfaction with your relationship. Then, with humorous anecdotes, she touches on communication tips and other tricks to help us reconnect. This episode is not to be missed! #fertilityjourney #tryingtoconceive #s*xcoach
