I have seen a common phenomenon not only in myself but in the people around me and my patients. I have seen healthy, energetic people go through periods where they lose all motivation and fail to move forward on a clear path. They have no energy, their get up and go, has gotten up and gone! It's not laziness or depression. No matter how hard you push or dig deep into your will power it just feels like too much.

I wanted to pass along a handful of things we all can be doing which not only will supports our immune function but also our fertility. A healthy body is one that is strong in both these areas. What makes supporting these systems easier is that there is a massive overlap. Often doing 1 think will improve both fertility and immunity. Here are a few of my favorite ways you can do both at the same time with only 1 change.

A few years ago I wrote a blog describing 5 fantastic ways to treat endometriosis. I wanted to take some time to revisit this blog post and create 4 Natural Ways To Treat Endometriosis. I will update this blog with more information and a few clinical experiences that I have gained since first writing that blog post.

In the past few months we have faced something few of us would have ever imagined possible. It's straight out of a hollywood film like Contagion or Outbreak. When talking to patients I can hear the fear in their voices. I can see the feeling of unease when waving to my neighbors. We have a feeling of fear around our health, our finances, a general sense of lack of control, even a fear of running out of toilet paper!

I wanted to pass along a story from one of my more recent patients, let's call her Alison. Alison first came into my office in the 3rd week of January looking for help with her health and improving her chances of having a child. She was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Although all her tests with her doctor have come back normal she definitely was not feeling healthy.

We often wish our friends and family good health over the holidays. Most of my patients are telling me right now that they want to be healthy in the new year, they are going to make better health choices once January comes.

Sometimes it's easier to add than to take away! What I mean by this is many of my patients openly say that they are not holding back this holiday. They will enjoy the holidays to the fullest. Lots of processed foods, speciality coffee's, alcohol and little to no vegetables. If this is the case, instead of trying to take some of these foods out maybe we can add something in to decrease the negative impact on your health.

Most people feel it is a rule that we all need to gain weight over the holidays in order to enjoy ourselves. We overindulge in too many foods and too much drink. We are too busy to stay active and exercise. When we look around us everyone else is doing the same thing. We feel comfortable in our poor decisions as it is socially acceptable. Most of us enter into January feeling tired, depressed and a few pounds heavier.

Our Grandparents are filled with information, and we traditionally seek knowledge from them when we were looking for life's answers. Today we first search google for tidbits of information and rarely use our grandparent's experience. Unfortunately google often overwhelms us with information in contrast to our Grandparents as they would provide us with a few pieces of clear useful actions.

Most studies and data we have look at how age negatively affects a woman’s fertility. Unfortunately, there are few good studies showing how a man’s fertility changes as he ages? We are now seeing fewer men having children in their 20's while men having children in their 30's and 40's has increased. Basically, men are waiting longer to have children.
