Today I’m welcoming Justine Altman back to the podcast!
We’re digging into how diet impacts fertility.
Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program – which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception.
If you are struggling with infertility…your body is desperately trying to tell you something…focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success.
Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with POCS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.
It’s day #1 of our fertility series. Over the next 3 days, you’ll be receiving actionable steps that you can implement right now so that you can prepare your body for a baby.
Diet is one of our favorite topics and it is so impactful for fertility.
So many are eating generalized diets that may even harm our fertility.
Or we’re completely overwhelmed with the diet recommendations that we don’t even know which diet is right for us.
This episode is for you if you are ready to finally figure out what you should eat to optimize your fertility.
On this podcast you’ll learn:
