EP 68: Fertility and the SHINES Protocol – The Info You NEEDED

Infertility is defined as 12 months of trying regularly without conception occurring. Although it’s not common, it happens to many couples, and it can be completely devastating when it does. With no known causes of infertility, the conception rate is about 85%, which means about 15% of couples fall within that definition.

Over my career, I’ve sat with hundreds of women and couples who have experienced this. In today’s episode, I’m talking about what you can do to optimize your fertility and support your reproductive health.

We’re talking about the various causes of infertility, the importance of considering both male and female factors, common fertility myths, the role of endocrine disorders, lifestyle factors, environmental influences, products, and supplements for fertility support, and more. Enjoy the episode!
