My 6 tips to survive Christmas

This is an extract from my Christmas survival ebook – Fertilise Your Christmas (read more here).  Here’s to surviving the silly season and making it through with your wellness in tact!

PLAN. Have your go-to snacks and treats and where

possible offer to bring a plate (you have many appropriate

recipes now!). You won’t end up eating something that you’ll

later regret.

TAKE TIME. You don’t have to go to every single party, every

single ‘catch up’ or join in the craziness of hoards of people

at the shops. If you don’t manage to see your friends before

Christmas, chances are they’ll still look the same post

Christmas.

AVOID HANGOVER GUILTS. Know you might have a few

drinks? Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Coconut water is full of

electrolytes and helps to keep your body well nourished, ward

off any head or body aches and will put a zing back in your

step. Keep a bottle handy in your bag; take a good drink

before bed and also upon rising.

NOURISH. Eat for wellness. If it doesn’t serve you, you

probably don’t have to eat it. Remember, if it isn’t a

wholefood, it isn’t really food!

SLEEP. It’s pretty simple. It’s the elixir of wellness. 8 hours is

a minimum.

ENJOY. Above all, make the most of the time off, the chance

to take the pace down a notch come Christmas day and have

your health at the forefront of each and every moment.

You may be aware that Fertilise Yourself as we all know and love, will soon be no longer.  Because she’s having an overhaul, she’s being published (holy wow right!?) and she’s going to be bigger, better and brighter than ever before.

But that said – she’s still as beautiful as ever and she’s going off line for a while until her new big sister version replaces her.  So with this in mind, I want to give you one last chance to purchase my very first e-book half price!

To take advantage of the offer, you can purchase here.  Please be sure to spread the word – this won’t be around for much longer (just a few short weeks) and I want everybody to have the opportunity to not only absorb the information but enjoy the recipes too!

How to become a natural fertility expert.

Ok – not because I want to blow my own horn but because people are asking – e v e r y d a y – just how did I become a natural fertility expert I thought it was a great opportunity to dedicate some time in to finding out a little more about how I arrived here.  Whether people want to know more for their own journey to fertility (just who’s blog are you reading exactly!?) or to add more skill to their treatment scope, equally it seems you are all super keen to know a bit more.

People would once look at me like I had two heads when I’d say I was a Chinese Medicine Herbalist.  Most people had no clue what that involved and I’m pretty certain some thought I was a witch doctor that brewed herbs in my mushroom house in preparation to poison snow white.

Recurrent Miscarriage – what does that even mean and where can I even start to fix it?

I had somebody write in a little while back and ask if I could share a little about recurrent miscarriage. Tricky part is, from a Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective there may be a swag full of reasons why this happens outside of known causes (ie genetic defects or structural irregularities). TCM views people according to their constitution, including their signs and symptoms. It doesn’t put you into the box of ‘recurrent miscarriage’ so it makes sense that we need to look for clues as to what individual cases are presenting, to go on and create a successful treatment plan. If we look at this from a western perspective, it may be from hormone insufficiency, hormone imbalance or excess hormones, a thin uterine lining, cysts, fibroids… it goes on. But most specifically for me, looking at gut function is also key since the gut is the pivot of our health – if the gut isn’t adequately assimilating food and drawing nutrients from our food, there is just no way our bodies can be nourished well – our hormones are affected (see Fertilise Yourself). That fertility switch once again get’s the flick.
