Today’s podcast episode is all about money- or rather deciding which blood work panels and diagnostics are TRULY WORTH the financial investments that come with them.
Today’s episode kicks off a new mini-series I’m doing called, “Where Should I Spend My Money?” For today, we’ll talk about:
----> The standard tests you should ALWAYS ask for…
----> The test to get if you haven’t had your period in 3+ months…
----> When a uterine biopsy makes sense… and when it doesn’t.
----> What tests your partner should be getting...
----> And you’ll get my thoughts on the HSG test, sonograms, laparoscopies…
Listen, I know it’s overwhelming just to read that list above… and depending on your insurance or the type of test, you’re probably seeing $$ all over the place.
But this is important- and with new advice, information and “internet experts” coming from all aspects of your life- I promise this episode will help break it down CLEARLY and CONCISELY so you spend money on the right things at the right time.

Could a Keto Diet Help With Fertility With Carrie Jackson, RD, MS
39:33This is episode a lot of you have been waiting for. Keto diet is all the rage right now. Everyday, I receive many emails from women who are trying-to-conceive and wondering if the Keto diet is the right diet for them. I want to you to meet Carrie Jackson, Registered Dietician and MS of Nutrition. I invited Carrie on the show because she's a nutrition expert first and foremost.

Let's dive into the conversation with Carrie Jackson on the Keto diet.
How To Intentionally Get Pregnant with Jane Ritz
1:13:22You 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!
13:38This 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
22:50It 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

12:26It’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.
