#44 How the Fertility Journey can Become your Teacher w/ Fertility Health Coach Monica Cox

Monica is somewhat of a hippy & is a bit obsessed with real food. Her clean eating lifestyle evolved slowly during her NINE year infertility journey. She spent six years searching for an answer to her unexplained infertility, which included never seeing a BFP and two failed IVFs.

She decided to make some dramatic diet and lifestyle changes to improve her fertility health and requested immune tests, even though the doctors told her she wasn’t a candidate for such testing. The results came back and she discovered she had High Natural Killers Cells. The answer to her unexplained infertility. With five embryos on ice she did three FETs with immune suppressing drugs, which resulted in two miscarriages and one beautiful baby boy.

Two months after all medical treatment was done and dusted, she found out the dramatic diet and lifestyle changes had paid off and she was pregnant naturally for the first time ever. Baby boy number two entered their family in March 2018. Monica is a stay at home mom, wife, Fertility Health Coach, author of Baby&Me, Podcast host The Infertile Diagnosis and creator of #gratedvegbrekkie She’s all about inspiring others to improve their physical and mental health on www.mymindfulme.com

#15 Theta Healing with Tania Luisa Lester

Tania Luisa Lester began in the arts of healing in Western medicine graduating from Mt. Sinai school of Radiology Technology at the age of 19, and graduated as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer from the University of Miami / Jackson Memorial Hospital at the age of 21.  Thereafter Tania was employed as Head Diagnostic Medical Sonographer at New York University Medical Center for several years while she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Literature. During this time, Tania diagnosed numerous cases of cancer, and a multitude of other terminal diseases.  Tania was always perplexed as to why certain patients, with the exact stage and type of prognosis from a life threatening disease recovered, while others succumbed to death. 

Tania has been an intuitive person since early childhood, hence she has always known there was much more to this than chance.  It was when she herself became very ill that Tania became aware as to why certain people lived while others died.

A couple of months before her Son turned two she noticed she was losing weight.  Soon after, Tania developed severe back pain, so severe she had to go to the ER for morphine drips.  Tania awoke one morning with the right side of her face paralyzed, known as Bell’s Palsy.  Tania weighed about 93 lbs, and became very weak.  She was diagnosed with MS.  Tania’s MRI showed multiple lesions throughout her brain.  She was at her lowest point weeks after, weak with excruciating pain, and was sure she was going to die.  That night she prayed to be taken at a later date because her son did not deserve to awaken to find his Mother dead.  “God, take me tomorrow, but not today,” were her exact words.  At that exact moment the pain beyond her control began to lift and objects in my room moved… lights, noise, and voices not of this world were heard and felt.  Tania knew at that moment that she would live, she would survive and that she was given the answer as to why certain people survive while others do not.  It became clear to her that it is One’s INTENTION and CONNECTION to God that determines whether they will survive.  

It was during the years that Tania lived in Bali that she became acquainted with ThetaHealing.   It has changed her life.  The answer as to why and how she was able to “cure” herself is ThetaHealing.  Being in a Theta brain wave while connected with the Creator through energy and meditation is what allows physical healing to occur.  In addition, negative beliefs can be removed resulting in a healthy, joyous and fulfilled life.

At present Tania is an Instructor and Practitioner of ThetaHealing. Tania teaches and practices ThetaHealing in the United States and Bali, Indonesia, and provides ThetaHealing Sessions Internationally via Skype as well.
