#28 Fabulously Fertile's Sarah Clark Discusses Functional Medicine for Fertility

Sarah Clark.jpg

When Sarah Clark was 28 years old, she received a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure. She accepted the diagnosis and had both her children through in vitro fertilization. Years later she realized the root cause of her infertility was a food intolerance and later a gut infection. She did not discover this link until she was fully in menopause. Her message is one of HOPE. If you are still cycling naturally there are steps we can take with the tools of functional medicine.

She is a certified life coach with accreditation from the International Coaches Federation and a health coach with training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. 

She is the author of Fabulously Fertile - Supercharge your Fertility Naturally, Fabulously Fertile Cookbook and Fertility Preparation Program. Her fertility coaching program, which includes functional lab testing, supports couples to make diet and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby! 

On her Get Pregnant Naturally Podcast she shares that with functional medicine and natural fertility solutions we can eventually reverse infertility. Check it out on iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.

#26 Psychotherapist Bette Galen discusses the Importance of Emotional Wellbeing

Bette Galen.jpg

Bette Galen has been a Licensed Clinical Social worker for 16 years. Her specialties include – women’s reproductive health, trauma, and life transitions.

Counseling in reproductive health issues includes the emotional, psychological, and relational difficulties that occur when individuals and couples have unexpected roadblocks to growing their family. 

She regularly provides consultations, education, and support for individuals and couples pursuing egg, sperm,  or embryo donation,  those seeking  a gestational carrier and those wishing to freeze their eggs for later use.  Each month she facilitates  a general infertility group and a couple’s infertility group.  In addition to working in her private practice, she is a social worker on staff in the Complementary Care department of a prestigious New Jersey  practice of Reproductive Endocrinologists.

When working with clients who have experienced trauma, be it infertility related,  or sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, Bette is informed by many  modalities of treatment including but not limited to  Internal Family Systems, Pia Mellody’s Post Induction Therapy for Relational Immaturity,  and EMDR.

As we age and grow, we all face any number of transitions – death or estrangement from loved ones, parenting or childfree living, divorce, or employment changes in these challenging  economic times. Learning cognitive strategies to neutralize negative thought patterns, building mind/body techniques to help with relaxation in order to get ‘unstuck’,  and learning to set boundaries, manage emotions and expectations, and operating  from your ‘best adult self’  can help while transitioning.

After  many years of working in the fashion business, Bette went back to school for her master’s degree in social work.  She had her own difficulty with infertility and is passionate about helping those going through that difficult journey. She is a member of The American Society of Reproductive Medicine, The Mental Health Professional Group of ASRM, a Resolve Therapist, and is certified in Internal Family Systems.

#20 The Importance of Self Care

Today I discuss the importance of self care and how taking a few minutes a day can have a transforming effect.

When I worked in NYC and juggled the craziness of corporate life, I learned just how conditioned we've become and how my coworkers and I got rewarded for working inhuman hours.  I believe this type of pattern has impacted many in modern day society and think that this can have a detrimental affect on the mind and body.

#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.

#11 What is the Creighton Model Fertility Care System? w/ Kelly Castleberry

Kelly Castleberry desired to be more natural with her fertility soon after getting married, and picked up the book “Taking Charge of Your Fertility.” Kelly stopped taking the birth control pill and they avoided pregnancy for several months before attempting to conceive. When it didn’t happen within a few cycles, Kelly became alarmed and started seeking help. They experienced 1 failed IUI, 3 IVFs, and 1 miscarriage by the time they were 27. They had no living children and were without answers as to why they were experiencing infertility. The lack of compassion from their Reproductive Endocrinologists led them to walk away from mainstream infertility treatments in 2003.

In 2004 they adopted a son, and in 2006 Kelly gave birth to a daughter.

In the years that have followed, they have desired to continue the growth of our family, and that desire lead them to the Creighton Model FertilityCare System (a natural method of tracking women’s cycles) and NaProTECHNOLOGY.

Because their FertilityCare Practitioner and NaProTECHNOLOGY medical consultant gave them answers, renewed hope, and compassion, Kelly wanted to help other women and couples heal from their infertility. In April 2016 she began working towards becoming a FertilityCare Practitioner, graduated from the Education Program in August 2017 and will become certified in early 2019. In June 2018, Kelly started learning how to teach FEMM (another natural method of charting women’s cycles) and TeenFEMM. She will take the 3 hour final exam in early 2019 and then be certified. Kelly also offers Organic Conceptions, an audio program that helps the couple improve emotional wellness - their sense of self, their ability to cope, and begin engaging in life again with newfound control on the journey to parenthood and beyond.

Kelly works in a GYN office as an Office Manager/Health Educator teaching local patients and runs her own business – Dunwoody FertilityCare where she teaches the Creighton Model FertilityCareSystem and FEMM via Skype to clients all over the world.

Dr. Nicola Rinaldi has a PhD in biology from MIT.

In addition, Dr. Rinaldi performed the largest survey to date of women who likewise experienced amenorrhea, and includes results from the survey answering many of the common questions women have, such as "How long will it take to recover?" "Will I be able to get pregnant?" and "Will I resume cycling after pregnancy?". Finally, the book includes Dr. Rinaldi's own story along with those of hundreds of other women, providing hope and reassurance to women following in their footsteps. Since publishing "No Period. Now What?" Dr. Rinaldi has been a guest on multiple podcasts, attended the ACSM and SCAN conferences, presented posters at the 2017 Female Athlete Conference, and FNCE in October, and now works with clients on period recovery and getting pregnant.
