We’re digging into multiple sclerosis and autoimmune disease while on the fertility journey.
One of the themes we see with our clients is an autoimmune disease. Studies show that over 1/5 of premature ovarian insufficiency cases also have an autoimmune disease. We commonly see women with low AMH/high FSH also presenting with autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Rheumatoid Arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6885484/)
The conventional approach with autoimmune disease is to prescribe medication without addressing the underlying healing opportunities.
This approach leaves many of us feeling frustrated and without a clear action plan.
What we know after working with our clients is that there are specific strategies that can address autoimmunity and improve the chances of pregnancy success.
Today I’m excited to welcome Dr. Teri Jaklin to the podcast. Dr. Teri is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, certified in functional medicine, and also holds a certificate in Mind-Body Medicine from Harvard.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) What is multiple sclerosis (MS) and why is it important to address when you are TTC
2) The connection with food sensitivities, gut infections and heavy metals with autoimmune disease and MS
3) How exercise therapy can be helpful for MS
4) The belief that we can recover and heal and ultimately conceive
