A practical and evidence-backed approach for improving egg quality and fertility— fully revised and updated in 2019. <br /><br />The latest scientific research reveals that egg quality has a powerful impact on how long it takes to get pregnant and the risk of miscarriage. Poor egg quality is in fact the single most important cause of age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and failed IVF cycles. <br /><br />Based on a vast array of scientific research, It Starts with the Egg provides a comprehensive program for improving egg quality in three months, with specific advice tailored to a variety of fertility challenges— including endometriosis, unexplained infertility, diminished ovarian reserve, PCOS, and recurrent miscarriage. <br /><br />With concrete strategies such as minimizing exposure to common toxins, choosing the right vitamins and supplements to safeguard developing eggs, and harnessing nutritional advice shown to boost IVF success rates, this book offers practical solutions that will help you get pregnant faster and deliver a healthy baby. <br /><br />“Rebecca Fett’s first edition of ‘It Starts with the Egg’ revolutionized the way the fertility community viewed supplements and the impact of environmental toxins on reproductive health. Through summarizing evidence-based research, she took the guess work out of recommendations. I’m thrilled to have a new edition to recommend to my patients."<br />- Dr. Lora Shahine, M.D., FACOG, Director of the Center for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss at Pacific NW Fertility,

<p>Out of the 100 million women—almost 11 million in the United States alone—who are on the pill, roughly <strong>60 percent</strong> take it for non-contraceptive reasons like painful periods, endometriosis, PCOS, and acne. While the birth control pill is widely prescribed as a quick-fix solution to a variety of women’s health conditions, taking it can also result in other more serious and dangerous health consequences. Did you know that women on the pill are more likely to be prescribed an antidepressant? That they are at significantly increased risk for autoimmune disease, heart attack, thyroid and adrenal disorders, and even breast and cervical cancer? That the pill can even cause vaginal dryness, unexplained hair loss, flagging libido, extreme fatigue, and chronic infection. As if women didn’t have enough to worry about, that little pill we’re taking to manage our symptoms is only making things worse. </p><p>Jolene Brighten, ND, author of the groundbreaking new book <strong>BEYOND THE PILL</strong>, specializes in treating women’s hormone imbalances caused by the pill and shares her proven 30-day program designed to reverse the myriad of symptoms women experience every day—whether you choose to stay on the pill or not. The first book of its kind to target the birth control pill and the scientifically-proven symptoms associated with taking it, <strong>BEYOND THE PILL</strong> is an actionable plan for taking control, and will help readers:</p><p>• Locate the root cause of their hormonal issues, like estrogen dominance, low testosterone, and low progesterone</p><p>• Discover a pain-free, manageable period free of cramps, acne, stress, or PMS without the harmful side effects that come with the pill</p><p>• Detox the liver, support the adrenals and thyroid, heal the gut, reverse metabolic mayhem, boost fertility, and enhance mood</p><p>• Transition into a nutrition and supplement program, with more than 30 hormone-balancing recipes</p><p>Featuring simple diet and lifestyle interventions, <strong>BEYOND THE PILL</strong> is the first step to reversing the risky side effects of the pill, finally finding hormonal health, and getting your badass self back.</p><p> </p>

In this welcome guide, Amy Medling shows how to combine an anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing diet, daily movement, and stress-reducing self-care to successfully treat their PCOS.</p><p>Grounded in the latest medical research and filled with the knowledge she’s acquired dealing with PCOS herself and working with thousands of women, <em>Healing PCOS</em> offers women small, manageable steps that help alleviate their symptoms and control the inflammation, hormonal imbalance, and insulin resistance that underlie the condition.
