by | Jun 8, 2018 | ketoforwomen

If you’re interested to learn more about keto and fertility, and just women’s health in general, then this episode is for you! Dr. Isaac Jones and Erica Jones talk about how they use the ketogenic diet in their practices to help their patients optimize their health, and in particular to help women gain fertility.

Topics Discussed in this Episode

  • The benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle from an inflammatory perspective
  • The benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle from a fertility perspective
  • The 3 main things that cause infertility
  • The 5 things that create chronic inflammation on a cellular level
  • The ways that you can support your gut health and address infertility issues

Key Takeaways:

  • The majority of people genetically actually need a more low-carb diet, especially if they’re dealing with inflammation.
  • Most people have inflammation in their body on a cellular level, and the goal is to get rid of it. One of the best ways to do that is a low-carb diet, and one of the best strategies within the context of a low-carb diet is to follow the ketogenic diet.
  • The ketogenic diet is one of the best tools that anyone can use to get to a high state of performance.
  • Sugar is estrogenic, and one of the reasons why women can’t get pregnant is because they’re in a state of estrogen dominance.
  • Fertility issues improve when we see people get to a healthier weight.
  • Micronutrient deficiency is at very core of a lot of the challenges that we’re seeing in the 21st century.
  • Men have as much healing and digging to do with their health as women.

Action Steps:

  • Get a food sensitivities test.
  • Create a balance in your diet in terms of including the low-carb vegetables that you can eat and the leafy greens.
  • Supplement with a micronutrient complex when you’re on the ketogenic diet.

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
