Maggie Berghoff joins us today as we're digging into the top environmental toxins and how they impact fertility.

Many of us know how mental emotional stress impacts our fertility, but we may not know the impact of environmental stress.

We’re exposed to chemicals in our food, our personal care products (yes this includes feminine hygiene products) and cleaning products.

Turns out these chemicals are linked to endocrine disruptors that impact both male and female fertility.

And the studies prove it:

Women with a history of miscarriage may have up to 300% more of a chemical used in perfumes and cosmetics in their bloodstream than women who have never miscarried. (Human Reproduction Journal)

Two common chemicals found in leather upholstery, carpets, soap, toothpaste, and even baby bottles have been linked to high infertility rates. (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology)

Today I’m welcoming Maggie Berghoff. Maggie is a functional medicine nurse practitioner and health consultant.

In this episode we’ll discuss:

  • How to replace your products with non-toxic options (it’s not about throwing out all your products (that can create more stress!).
  • How to ensure your water is safe - what you need for a filter and what you could be missing in the shower.
  • What to do about the air you breathe – filter recommendations and why indoor air pollution is worse that outdoor
  • Blue Light exposure – we’re big on this one – we’re all exposed to blue and green light from our tablets/computers/phones – this impacts our melatonin which is essential for male and female fertility
  • Sound exposure – noise activates a stress response, which triggers a release of cortisol. We discuss how to minimize your exposure.
  • EMF exposure – we discuss how to minimize WiFi and 5G and why this matters for fertility
