Infertility: It’s more than just your ovaries

Here’s hoping everyone had a great Independence Day celebration, even with the HEAT Wave and Thunderstorms (here, in the US)!

This evening — Thursday, July 5th, 2012 — at 8 PM eastern (www.time.gov), I have the pleasure of discussing the “Infertility: It’s more than just your ovaries” with Dr. Patrick Flynn.

In 2002, 2 million American women of reproductive age were infertile. Infertility is also common among men. In fact, iinfertility is actually a global issue. Data from the CDC shows that “The desire to have children is powerful and widespread, but for a size able minority it is not easily fulfilled. Challenges to fertility arise from genetic abnormalities, infectious or environmental agents, delayed childbearing, behavior, and certain diseases. Awareness of the potential risks may lead some people to adopting corrective behaviors and maintain fertility. Many people, however, find themselves coping with infertility.”

Treatment for infertility is fairly complex and along with fertility treatment facilities, many have turned to a more holistic approach. Treatment remedies include modalities such as acupuncture, yoga, massage diet/nutrition, herbs, vitamins, counseling/support groups and yes, even laughter therapy (clowning).

Dr. Patrick Flynn is an expert in the area of infertility, and the use of complementary therapies for this rising health concern. We will discuss the ABC’s and D’s of infertility.

Here are a few of the questions we’ll discuss:

  • Where does the current healthcare system go wrong when dealing with infertility?
  • Is in vitro the answer?
  • Is it the same approach for every woman?
  • Does stress affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant?
  • How does birth control impact fertility?

Is gluten destroying your health?

On Thursday, May 3rd, 2012, I will be discussing “Put That Bread Down: How Gluten May be Destroying Your Health & What To Do About It” with Dr. Thomas O’Bryan.

Dr. Thomas O’Bryan is an internationally recognized speaker and workshop leader specializing in Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease. He is a ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and metabolic disorders. He is a clinician par excellence in treating chronic disease and metabolic disorders from a Functional Medicine Perspective.

Dr. O’Bryan is always one of the most respected, highly-appreciated speakers.

In sensitive individuals, Gluten Sensitivity can trigger Auto-Immune Disorders, Epilepsy, Thyroid Disease, Diabetes, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and more. Perhaps one of the more surprising messages is the impact of Gluten Sensitivity on the brain. The “dimmer switch”, that occurs in the brain (especially in children), is one that parents and care givers would never suspect.

What can you do to outsmart stress & prevent adrenal fatigue?

This Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 8 PM eastern (www.time.gov), I have the pleasure of discussing the “Adrenal Fatigue & Outsmarting Stress” with Dr. Lena Edwards.

“Avoid Stress”. You’ve heard that before. So what are you supposed to do? Avoid your wife or husband, better yet the kids. How about avoiding those bill collectors and your boss, or the insane manager, who just doesn’t get it. Maybe the manager is you. Maybe you can’t meet payroll and you’re about to get fired, and the list goes on and on…divorce, death, disability, termination, and those crazy, unexpected life events. And don’t forget The Economy. Everything, that is out of your control. Or is it?

This is such an important topic since everyone is “Stressed Out” in some form or fashion, and the health effects are taking a large toll on the body, mind and spirit, in individuals and in families.

What is real solution for this “all time” pan-epidemic problem of the 21st century? And, why does it matter? Or does it?

So, is your cell phone killing you, and how about that cordless?
