Video: CNY Fertility offers The Fertile Secret: Nutrition for Fertility


Hi, I’m Lisa Stack, CNY Fertility Support Coordinator.  This is the next video in our The Fertile Secret video series.  I wanted to talk to you today about nutrition.  If you’re new to the series, take a look at the introduction video.  I’ve also covered massage and acupuncture up to this point as well.  Now, going back to nutrition.  What we eat, what we ingest, and what we put into our bodies is so important.  I think a lot of times, we stress about it.  We’re hearing all sorts of different ideas, scenarios and diets in the news.  We know that we should be an ideal weight, we should watch what we eat, we should eat whole foods, we should eat less processed foods, but how to go about that is challenging.  Sometimes, it can be intimidating, especially the idea of getting on a diet plan or seeing a nutritionist or looking specifically at what you eat.  All those thoughts can be intimidating and cause anxiety in some situations.  We want to make that easy for you.
On The Fertile Secret plan, what we’d like to do is to sit you down with our nutritionist.  They are very easy to talk to, very simple to talk to, very loving, warming, and outgoing.  We’ll look at what you eat.  We want you to be honest.  If you like a slice of pizza, tell us, because we do too!  We want to work with the foods that you eat, and your time available, and your finances available.  We will also want to look at all your diagnoses and come up with a great plan that works with what you can do, what tastes good, what works for your body, and what will optimize your fertility.  Not everyone is going to have the same plan.  We don’t want everyone to come in and walk out a tiny size two because that’s not everyone’s “healthy”.  We want to help you to move towards your ideal body weight, which is specific and unique to you; it’s not going to look like any other woman’s, it’s not going to give you the same protocol or the same size or the same number as with any other female that we work with through this program.  It’s completely unique to you and your situation.  What you feel you’re accomplishing and your goals are and where you are physically, mentally, and spiritually.
We will work with you to get you to your ideal size and your ideal you—your healthiest and happiest you.  We’re going to try to increase a lot of great, healthy whole fruits and vegetables, good dietary choices in regards to meat and dairy, fats, and all these choices will help increase your fertility, decrease those side-effects from PCOS that are really challenging to deal with and to have.  I understand, I have that myself.  Also, it’s going to be good to help set you up for a wonderful pregnancy.  While you’re pregnant, you’re going to thinking about all these dietary changes anyway.  You’re going to be eating healthy, taking your vitamins and watching your sugars, your caffeine and your fats.  You want to give your baby the best environment to grow up in and the best environment to be healthy, happy, and nurtured.  We are just setting you up to a great, healthy pregnancy and beyond that as well.
If you have any questions, please email them, call us, comment on the website, anything.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.  We do hope that you utilize our nutritionist and our healthy eating pro-fertility workshops, our nutrition for fertility workshops, and any of our vitamin or herbal supplements.  Just try to take this as a one-step approach.  Just take this one step at a time—one meal, one step at a time.  Always keep in the back of your head, healthy in, healthy out.  The great healthy foods that you put in your body and you allow your body to take in, are going to produce healthy results.  What else do we have to run on besides the foods that we eat?  So please, take a look at the rest of The Fertile Secret videos and also visit our CNY Healing Arts Centers.  Take a look at our herbal supplements and our prenatal vitamins that we have for you, as well as our nutrition information.
If you have any questions about any medical conditions that you have and your nutrition or specific diet plans or specific food restrictions, please bring those up.  Our nurses are able to help you, the nutritionists are able to help you, and our physicians are able to help you.  We have a great team here.  We want to make sure that you are functioning at your highest potential and you are fully exploring the completely fertile you that’s in there and we’re just helping you to bring it about.  Good luck!
