Journal Your Way to Fertility Health by Nicola Salmon

In the world of google, no symptom, syndrome or side-effect is left unresearched and it’s so easy to become overwhelmed by all the information out there. 

Whether you are trying to work out what supplements to take, which foods to eat or how to reduce your stress, I’m sure you have found hundreds of different things to try. The problem with choice is that you feel like you need to try it all. And when researching on pregnancy, maybe the next thing you find will be *the* thing to help you get pregnant.

So where do you start?

How can you tell what’s going to work without reading every forum post and trying everything there is? 

The good news is, it’s simple. Almost too simple. 

Our bodies are incredible things. There are thousands upon thousands of different processes going on in our bodies every minute that we don't even have to think about. We don't have to tell our body to digest our food when we eat or increase our heart rate when we exercise. The body has the capacity to run and heal itself. 

When we start to listen to our bodies, they begin to tell us everything we need to know. Those annoying symptoms are your body trying to tell you something and when you start to listen, you learn what foods, supplements and habits will lead you to a healthier life.

This is where journaling comes in.

Fertility Journaling

You can start with a simple notepad and pen. Each day write down some simples things such as:

  • What and when you ate. (No calorie counting or judgement, just what it was)
  • What and when you drank.
  • How your energy varied throughout the day
  • How your mood varied throughout the day
  • When and how you moved your body
  • Any symptoms, aches, pains etc
  • Where you are in your menstrual cycle
  • How much sleep you got

With this information, you will begin to see patterns:

  1. You have trouble getting to sleep if you drink coffee at 5pm.
  2. Exercising in the morning makes your feel productive all day.
  3. You get a headache if you haven’t drunk enough water the day before.
  4. Your mood and energy will change depending on your cycle.
  5. You feel bloated in the afternoon after having milk on your cereal in the morning.

This information is priceless. It’s your personal instruction book to leading a healthy life.  

Once you get started with this practice, you will notice your body changing as you react to what it is telling you. Finally you'll have the power to make a difference in your health.

Effects of Childhood Trauma on Women's Health With Nikki Gratrix

Nikki Gratrix is our second guest on Mental Health Month and we're talking about the effect of childhood trauma on women's health. This is a great under-talked about epidemic that affects many people for years. And these childhood traumas could go from the very severe to the much less severe. But the good thing is that we can reverse them with interventions we can employ today. So this is a very interesting talk packed with facts and suggestions.

Nikki is an amazing speaker who has done a lot of research into the connection between childhood trauma and illness. She studied and was working in banking, economics & finance before moving to the health industry. She wanted to do something with more meaning and to help people directly.

Nikki trained and worked as a Clinical Nutritionist in the UK, and during this time she became more of a mind-body expert rather than just looking at nutrition and functional nutrition.

Learn Your Most Fertile Window With Justina Thompson

Justina Thompson

Welcome to Day 7 of Fertility Week!

Justina Thompson is a Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) coach and is our last guest for Fertility Week. She took a 2-year certification program with Sarah Naomi Bly and has successfully been using FAM to prevent pregnancy for 7 years. It is a natural birth control method free from side effects.

She learnt more about the importance of FAM for couples trying to get pregnantduring her 2 years training and while in internship.  A large portion of her training involved understanding how hormones work for the female body from the scientific level.  The focus for the program was to support hormonal health with lifestyle, nutrition and environmental factors.

Couples are often told by their doctors that unless they’ve been trying to conceive for more than 12 months, then they should keep trying which kind of leaves them in the dark. But with FAM and other types of charting like the BBT, which is very popular, the method targets the time when the woman is most fertile and more capable of conceiving.

In this episode, Justina talks about:

  1. Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) and how it works
  2. Signs of fertility in women - cervical fluid, BBT charting and cervical position
  3. Factors that trigger early or late ovulation
  4. Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPKs)
  5. Common problems and frustrations in charting

Ten Tips for PMS

As I prepared for this article, I googled “tips for PMS.”  Some suggestions were basic but good, such as stopping smoking.  Others were very disappointing, like use ibuprofen for cramps or take antidepressants for severe symptoms.  Yes those are solutions, but only temporary ones.  They don’t get to the root of your PMS problem.  And for actual prevention, that’s what you need.

PMS, or premenstrual syndrome, was first defined as a group of symptoms with no known cause that arises before or during your menstrual cycle.  In our modern culture, it’s become a common term and an expected part of having a period.

PMS is actually not a required part of your life, and it does have a cause: low progesterone / estrogen dominance.  Why you get into this pattern will vary with each woman, but there are a few main culprits.  

For today I’m going to give some of my best tips for PMS I’ve learned over my 12 years working with women.

1. Drink Water

Ok, this one may seem too easy.  You drink it everyday.  But if you aren’t getting enough water for your cells to function properly or for your body to detoxify, you can have symptoms of PMS.  

Some of my clients have relieved their symptoms just by making sure to drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water per day in the week before their period.  

Ideally we should all drink that much pure water everyday.  Tip:  start right away with a glass in the morning, and keep water near you to sip between meals all day.

2.  Get More Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that we need to make progesterone in the second half of our cycle, and the we need to prevent menstrual cramps.  

Food sources of magnesium include sunflower seeds, beans, nuts, dark leafy greens, avocado and dark chocolate!  That’s often why you crave it around your period!

If you are thinking, “well I take a multivitamin,” check the amount you’re getting on your bottle. Magnesium is very bulky and the RDA (recommended daily allowance) of 400 mg of magnesium can’t fit in a one-a-day pill.  

Magnesium bisglycinate chelate is one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium, and this is the one that I have chosen to use personally. Click here to learn how to tell if you have a magnesium deficiency, or check out my favorite brand here.

3. Take Fish Oil

Fish oil is anti-inflammatory, and quelling inflammation allows your cells to receive hormonal signals. Translation: your hormones won’t be going wack-a-doodle.  Fish oil also prevents inflammation that can cause cramps.  And it helps regulate the immune system in cases of autoimmunity that can be involved in female disorders such as endometriosis.

However, finding a high-quality fish oil is essential, and it’s not always easy. Read my article on healthy fats (including fish oil) here, and check out my favorite brand here.  

NOTE: My ‘big three’ cures for menstrual cramps are water, magnesium and fish oil.  Take caution not to overdose on sugars (see tip #8) when you add in these three beneficial substances.

4. Eat Fiber

Fiber is an unsung hero for hormones.  To have balanced hormones, you need to clear out old hormones.  How do you do that?  You need to support your liver and digestive tract.  

Fiber helps you move your bowels so toxins aren’t reabsorbed.  It also supports a healthy gut microbiome (the community of organisms in your digestive tract) so that you make vitamins and brain chemicals, which further keeps you balanced. You also get all the good stuff out of food through a healthy gut.  If I haven’t totally convinced you yet, fiber keeps your gut healthy.  An unhealthy gut is a major source of inflammation, which as you learned is no bueno for your hormonal health.

I’m not talking about that weird fiber you buy from the drugstore and mix into water.  Aim for eight different sources of fiber a day from a variety of leafy veggies, root vegetables, fruits and gluten-free whole grains and seeds.  In a week, aim for twenty different sources.  The more variety is the better, so try new foods from the produce section and from your farmers’ market.

You want to get 30 gm of fiber a day, which is kind of a lot.  I get extra by adding hemp seed and chia seed to my smoothies.

5.  Dose Up on Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is a power compound for women’s health. B6 is needed to make progesterone in the second phase of your menstrual cycle. If you are deficient, you could end up with PMS, a short cycle or spotting. This factors into fertility issues as well.

If you take a good-quality multivitamin, you are getting a dose of B6. But if you have severe PMS, you may want to try a high dose for a few months, along with some of the other tips in this article.

Some food sources of B6 are brown rice, liver, beef, lentils, tuna, banana, cashews, cabbage and turkey.

The RDA for B6 for women in their childbearing years is 1.3 mg.  I would try taking 100 mg a day for 3 months.  You can use the same dose (divided into 25 mg doses) for morning sickness.

6.  Try Borage Oil

Borage oil is derived from cold-pressing the seeds of the borage, or starflower, plant.  This oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and is high in GLA (gamma-linoleic) fatty acids.  You may have heard of using evening primrose oil for PMS, and that is good too, but borage oil is higher in GLA; it’s the highest of any seed oil.

It may be that, like black cohosh, it’s the potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of borage oil that enable your glands and organs to function correctly, thus alleviating PMS.

I recommend 1 capsule a day in the two weeks before your period.

7.  Get Sleep

When you sleep, you heal.  You make growth hormone and repair tissues. When you don’t sleep, you get cranky and have food cravings.  Then you eat a doughnut, feel guilty and feel sick.  

When you are trying to fix PMS, you want to create as much stability as possible in your body. This makes the changes that come with a menstrual cycle much easier to endure.  

So please get about eight hours of sleep each night.  Some of us need a bit more, and some a bit less.  Your sleep timing is also important.  At 10 PM your adrenal glands start to repair, so you want to be sleeping like a beauty by then.

8.  Avoid the Sweet Stuff

What do processed sweets and starches, pumpkin lattes and wine have in common?  They all disrupt your blood sugar and contribute to PMS.  I know it’s not what you want to hear, but it’s so, sister.

When your blood is often high is sugars, your cells block more sugars from coming inside.  This is called insulin resistance.  (Insulin is the hormone that helps delivers the sugars.)  This insulin lingering in your blood can cause increased production of testosterone, which converts to estrogen, and now you have that estrogen dominance / low progesterone state of PMS.

I invite you to spend a full menstrual cycle avoiding the sweet stuff and trying these other tips and see what happens in your cycle.  If you think about giving up lattes forever, it’s too much.  But you can commit to a month, and once you fall off the wagon and symptoms resurface, it’s much easier to choose to avoid the sweet stuff.  

If you are going to eat a processed carbohydrate or sweet, pair with protein, fat and fiber so it won’t spike your blood sugar as much.

A Natural Approach to Fertility with Dr. Aumatma Shah, ND

Women's-Wellness---Aumatma-Shah.png

 

Infertility is not a disease, it’s a symptom.  When we are in optimal health, we are fertile.  Dr. Aumatma Shah

Having been in the fertility field a while myself, I really appreciate Dr. Aumatma's lighthearted, compassionate, and inquisitive attitude about fertility.  It is all too easy to get discouraged, melodramatic, etc, and she does none of that.

Trying to get pregnant, and not initially succeeding, is incredibly stressful.  To have someone on your team who is a bright light of hope can be a game changer.

Dr. Aumatma is a naturopathic physician, and her approach to fertility includes the following:

Testing:

She will, as the case demands, run tests on:

  • Full thyroid panel
  • Food sensitivity test
  • Detox panel
  • Nutrients panel
  • Genomics profile

DetoxifyinG:

As our endocrine systems are so sensitive to toxins, and there are so dang many of them out there, detoxification can be vital.

Rebuilding:

Get nutrients into the body and healing with homeopathics are some of her techniques.

Energetics:

Releasing past traumas and re-learning to be a receptive female again in this man's world are examples of what she can help.

Dr. Aumatma offered a free gift to our community, which is a "How Fertile Am I?" quiz that she will personally review.

Fertility Success through the Four Pillars with Angela Tisci, LAc

It's easy to get caught in our 'critter brain' when we are trying to conceive.  Patients and practitioners alike can be so busy chasing symptoms and the latest trends, that the fundamental needs of whole health are ignored.

  • The three brains, and how our desire for safety sabotages our ability to change
  • The four pillars of health, including financial health and how this plays into the fertility path
  • How the right career and a clean house can support your fertility!
