Play • 56 min

Monika Friedman joins us this week as we’re digging into how to improve the chances of conception in your 40’s with low AMH/High FSH.

If you are reading this right now you are ready to get pregnant and have your baby.

If you were anything like me when I was going through infertility you are planning your next steps.

But what if what you’ve been told about low Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) or follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and age is wrong?

Today we are debunking the top 3 myths about AMH/FSH and how to improve pregnancy success in our 40’s.

I’m excited to welcome Monika Friedman to the podcast. Monika is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is one of our Fertility Coaches and 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.

Monika is a Fertility Coach helping professional women increase their chances of getting pregnant with less anxiety and more joy along the way. She is a 4-time IVF warrior, a yoga teacher, and a working mom with an MBA and 15 years of corporate experience under her belt.

In this episode you’ll learn:

1) What to do next if you have low AMH/high FSH in your 40’s

2) What do low AMH/high FSH really mean for your chances of conception?

3) We debunk the top 3 fertility myths around Low AMH and how to prepare for a successful pregnancy.

Overcoming Emotional Eating with Tricia Nelson
*Show Summary:* *"To heal your hunger, you have to feel some hunger because that hunger informs you of what's going on."* Do you feel defeated because of your Yoyo diet? Do you feel frustrated from preventing yourself from binge eating unhealthy foods, but you still end up feeling guilty after a stressful day? Have you always been disappointed because of overeating? Tricia Nelson, the author of Heal Your Hunger book and a transformational speaker, shares her roller coaster experience in being an emotional eater. She tried many ways like diet, pills, programs, and consulted an eating disorder therapist to find solutions, but unfortunately, nothing worked for her.  She would always go back to her yoyo diet, which broke her hope of finding the real problem. Being focused on food and weight symptoms is not the key because it is just a symptom.  What you have to dive into and deal with are the underlying causes, like the emotional factors. Good thing, Tricia overcame this through the help of her spiritual healer by addressing the real cause of her eating disorder. Her journey has been her inspiration in educating people about food addiction or any health issues where the diet is involved. Listen as she breaks down the common misconceptions about food, emotional, and physical hunger. *Important Links* Gutsy Health Website Provo Health Instagram Heal Your Hunger Website Heal Your Hunger Book  Heal Your Hunger Instagram *Exceptional Highlight:* * “Whatever the health problem, diet plays a major part of getting the problem and then healing the problem.” *  We use food as a form of escape because of worry and stress and fear, we want to numb out. * Feed your body and get used to a regular schedule of eating, so that you have space between the meals.. *Show Highlights: * *What is Tricia’s story?* *Tricia 2:21* * I started out as an emotional eater, I think from the get go like as far back as I can, I remember food was a big highlight for me. *How did she figure out the missing piece to her problem?* *Tricia 5:1* * I was still young. I tried so many things, I'd actually lost some weight. And I was about to go back up the scale again, because that was my habit.  *How did she start to heal her hunger?* *Tricia  24:55* * I did a lot of intense work. After a year or so I was in so much of a better place, and I didn't have the cravings anymore. I was in a thin body and I could handle being in a thin body, feeling worthy of being seen or feeling comfortable. *How does one differentiate between emotional hunger and physical hunger* *Tricia  37:4* * I've been doing this work for over 30 years now and it amazes me as a motivator, like I'll get off a phone call that's really stressful and I’d be like, “I'm hungry”. * And I'll think, “What can I eat?” And then I'll have this conversation with myself. And I'd be like, “Wait, you know, you just had breakfast a couple hours ago. Are you really that hungry?” Support the show (https://www.mygutsyhealth.com/gutsy-family)
