Wendy Myers joins us today as we’re digging into heavy metals and how they can impact your fertility.

We are exposed to over 85,000 chemicals in our environment. These chemicals negatively impact hormones and ultimately fertility.

Specifically, exposure can negatively impact sex hormone production in men and women, contribute to irregular menstrual cycles, reduced testicular function and more.

Exposure can include cigarette smoke, air pollution, plastics, tap water, ingesting fish and/or shellfish with mercury, rice which may contain arsenic just to name a few!

All of us have some degree of heavy metal exposure, but some people are more sensitive to these heavy metals than others. 

In our Couples Coaching program one of functional tests we have access to is the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test. A Hair Mineral Analysis assesses your mineral levels and toxic heavy metal levels that are being eliminated into the hair. So many of us are eating the healthy nutrient dense diet and are well fed but undernourished, because our body is not absorbing the minerals.

Let’s dig into how to minimize our exposure and balance our hormones.

I’m excited to welcome Wendy Myers to the podcast. She is a detox expert, functional diagnostic nutritionist and NES Bioenergetic Practitioner

In this episode you’ll learn:

1) The reasons that heavy metals accumulate in our bodies (ie missing nutrients for detoxification, mineral deficiency)

2) We discuss the top 4 heavy metals that cause hormonal balance (ie Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Arsenic).

3) Strategies to help detox. (ie sauna, supplements – binders to remove toxins, the benefits of coffee enema and more).
