Inflammation May Be Impacting Your Fertility

A lot of fertility problems come from inflammatory causes. The good news? This is something we can control.

In this episode of the Fundamentally Fertile podcast, I talk with fertility expert Dr. Susan Fox about how inflammation affects the body, and specifically how it impacts fertility. You’ll learn how to spot the signs of hidden inflammation and be one step ahead of your health.

We explore the ins and outs of food ingredients and how you can use your diet to avoid inflammation.

Lastly, we discuss everything you need to know about parasites and how to tell if you have any in your own body.

If you struggle with an unknown medical symptom, there’s a good chance you may find the solution in this episode!

Key Topics and Takeaways:

  • How inflammation causes infertility.
  • My unique, three-pronged approach to addressing inflammation.
  • The importance of reading labels and identifying chemicals.
  • Case studies of my own clients’ experiences with anti-inflammatory diets and fertility.
  • Three factors that are common to most chronic fertility and auto-immune conditions.
  • Signs you may have a parasite.

Memorable Quotes:

“I just want to make sure that listeners understand that they don’t have to feel pain in order to presume or question whether or not there’s an inflammatory process. There are these more subtle indicators.” (9:18, Dr. Fox)

“What I’m talking about is not a pharmaceutical bandaid. This is not some sort of artificial inducement that will make it seem like you’re okay. But you’re not really okay underneath. We’re talking about a holistic view of the body to actually create healing from the inside out so that you are in better shape to be a parent.” (10:55, Elizabeth)

“You just have to read the labels, even from things that you have long assumed safe.” (17:17, Elizabeth)

“You don’t even ever have to have eaten something for you to be reactive to it.” (26:22, Elizabeth)

“Your eggs are only as good as your health.” (32:53, Dr. Fox)

Total Health Summit 2019

I’m so excited to share my talk presented at this year’s Total Health Summit!

My hour-long session was filled with fun anecdotes and great information as we explored the causes and effects of inflammation in the body. I shared details of my unique three-pronged approach to reclaiming health as well as my best tips that I offer to patients in my nationwide dietary therapy clinic to help them find their way back to health.

If you or someone you know are suffering and not finding lasting relief, they might be a good candidate for my all-natural, non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory programs.

I’m currently offering a FREE Naturopathic Health Assessment to fill just a few spots in my private practice. Book your appointment now to see if what I offer could help you feel better!

New Discovery: Every Neurological Disease Has an Immune Component


Newly discovered vessels in the brain connect directly to the immune system, says a research study by the University of Virginia (UVA) School of Medicine.

This pathway was previously not thought to exist and could have a major impact on how to address neurological dysfunction. Numerous neurological disorders present with signs of inflammation and accumulated waste in the brain.

“They’ll have to change the textbooks. There has never been a lymphatic system for the central nervous system…,” says lead researcher Jonathan Kipnis, PhD, professor of the UVA Department of Neuroscience and director of UVA’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia (BIG). “It will fundamentally change the way people look at the central nervous system’s relationship with the immune system.”

The immune system is responsible for creating inflammation in the body. I have long believed that neurologic issues are related to inflammation, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, autoimmune issues like M.S., and even depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems.

In my clinic we work to reduce inflammation naturally in order to allow the body to heal and function effectively. We see dramatic improvements in neurologic function simply by identifying and removing personal inflammatory triggers.

Do you wonder if your condition might improve by reducing inflammation in your brain? Book a complimentary, risk-free, no-commitment Natural Health Assessment here and find out if you can free yourself of inflammation and feel better quickly!

Additives In Your Food Can Be Harming Your Health

Increasing rates of dementia, auto-immune diseases, cancer metastasis, eczema, asthma, and autism are among a growing list of diseases that have been linked to soaring exposure to nanoparticles found in common food additives.

If you’re not up on your label lingo, you’re probably not even aware of how many additives are in our everyday foods.

The study out of the University of Sidney in Australia investigated the health impacts of food additive E171 (titanium dioxide nanoparticles) which is commonly used in high quantities in foods and some medicines as a whitening agent. Found in more than 900 food products such as chewing gum and mayonnaise, E171 is consumed in high proportion everyday by the general population.

The microbiome refers to the population of bacteria, flora and fauna that live in our gut and play a crucial role in human health.

“It is well established that dietary composition has an impact on physiology and health, yet the role of food additives is poorly understood,” said Associate Professor Chrzanowski, a nanotoxicology expert from the University of Sydney’s School of Pharmacy and Sydney Nano Institute.

“There is increasing evidence that continuous exposure to nanoparticles has an impact on gut microbiota composition, and since gut microbiota is a gate keeper of our health, any changes to its function have an influence on overall health.”

“This study presents pivotal evidence that consumption of food containing food additive E171 (titanium dioxide) affects gut microbiota as well as inflammation in the gut (edit: emphasis mine), which could lead to diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases and colorectal cancer,” he said.
