podcast Sep 03, 2021

“If you’re still eating food you’re highly intolerant to; it’ll take you a lot longer to heal.”

Is gut health important for fertility?  Are you eating the right food for your body to help support your fertility? Did you know that your gut can be almost completely responsible for your fertility issues?

  • “What goes into your gut is going to affect everything else throughout your entire body.”

In this episode, Caitlin and I go into detail about our infertility journeys and how gut health contributed to our experiences. Your gut and environmental stressors play a huge part in healing your infertility.
