07: Food and Fertility: Can Diet Impact Your Chances for Pregnancy
How Food Can Have an Impact on Fertility for PCOS, Endometriosis, and Other Fertility Factors.
In this podcast episode we sit down with Brooke Boskovich, the Fertility Dietician. We know that food, more specifically nutrition, plays a large role in our overall health and wellness, but with Brooke we dive into the affect various foods have on our fertility. This is a very difficult topic for many who are trying to conceive. Brooke guides us through the world of nutrition and how when used early enough, it can potentially help to increase fertility even in women with PCOS, Endometriosis, unexplained infertility, and more.
Brooke explains the impact and importance of a woman’s fertility throughout her life and how this is an indicator of our overall health and wellness. Often her patients have lived with different conditions for years and only were diagnosed as part of fertility counseling or treatment, herself included.
What we covered:
- The link between nutrition and fertility.
- Brooke’s own personal journey through infertility, and diagnosis.
- Often couples try other treatments and diagnoses before seeking nutritional guidance.
- Fertility is a direct indicator of our overall health and not just our ability to conceive.
- We can use nutrition to balance our hormones for healthy and regular cycles.
- What a fertility nutrition program looks like from a holistic approach, including diagnostic tests, and action steps.
- How our partner’s nutrition can impact our chances of conceiving and carrying a healthy baby to term.
