Fertility Rewire Podcast

Dec 13, 2019

In the second interview with Joanna, we dig deeper into the effects of your gut health on your general health and of course your fertility.

We hear a lot about good and bbad bacteria, and the message gets a bit confusing, for example, did you know that taking a probiotic isn't always the best thing to do?

I love chatting all things Fertility but as ever this is about taking a step back, looking upstream and actually looking at your overall health.

We hear a lot about gut health, how taking some good bacteria can be helpful.  But it can be a mistake to take probiotics if you don't first address the issues of potential damage in you gut

Joanna Plant talks with me in this episode about the importance of addressing your gut health, in terms of your genral health and obviously more specifically your fertility, or to be honest any body sytsme taht you are experiencing imbalance within.  If your gut is in poor health, or perhaps you have leaky gut, then we know as ever that the body is dealing with something big and may be in survival mode so your safety is affected. If you are not absorbing nutrients as a result than your body is not receiving the necessary sustenance especiall for normal functioning and yes for reproduction.

We are more prone to auto immune with increased permeability in the git.  It was a fascinating conversation and if you prefer to read about it, you can do so here.

Joanna explains how healing your gut is a process and requires a specific approach, putting in the good bacteria as many people focus on, is not the first step.
