Get Pregnant Naturally


Mar 15, 2021

Jodie Cohen joins us today as we're digging into how to utilize essential oils on the fertility journey.

Our goal at Fab Fertile HQ’s is to reduce inflammation and stressors on the body, in order to optimize preconception health and pregnancy success.

As you may know, we work with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, premature ovarian failure/insufficiency, and/or diminished ovarian reserve.

Our proven Fab Fertile Method addresses food sensitivities, gut infections, thyroid dysregulation, blood sugar imbalance, interrupted sleep, mental/emotional stress, and more so that you can prepare for pregnancy success.

And while we may know that worrying, feeling impatient, frustrated, or stuck in comparison does not serve us – it’s easier said than done to simply turn off our stressors.

You’ve probably tried a lot of things to reduce your mental-emotional stress, however, usually, it’s a number of small changes that help shift the needle so that the body can know it’s safe for a successful pregnancy.

I’m excited to welcome Jodie Cohen to the podcast. Jodi is a bestselling author, award-winning journalist, functional practitioner, and founder of Vibrant Blue Oils, where she has combined her training in nutritional therapy and aromatherapy to create unique proprietary blends of organic and wild-crafted essential oils. She has helped over 50,000 clients heal from brain-related challenges, including anxiety, insomnia, and autoimmunity.

 

In this episode you'll learn:

1) How essential oils activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

2) What is the vagus nerve and why it is so important to activate it so that we can reduce stress.

3) How to optimize sleep; address insomnia with simple steps you can implement today.

4) How essential oils help with anxiety, depression, and mood imbalance so that we can increase our resilience.

5) We discuss top essential oil blends and what to look for in an essential oil.
