A functional approach to fertilityLooks At More Than What Is At The End Of Your Fork.
Functional Lab Testing and Interpretation
Functional lab tests are much different than traditional testing you may have received. I use a DUTCH Hormone test and Gut Testing on every client to get right to the source of any foundational imbalances. Other lab testing is available on a case by case basis. No more cookie cutter approach. Why guess when you can test… the right way!
Virtual One-on-One Consults & Packages
Let’s get real, a lot of people know that eating a smoothie for breakfast is better than eating donuts, but forming the habit to do it is a different story. Once we have data from functional lab tests to guide the way, it’s important to work with someone who can help drive consistent change day-to-day. However, it’s up to you to make the change in the end. Are you up for it?
Professional Grade Supplements
Supplements aren’t just innocent little vitamins and minerals that can do no harm. Supplements are powerful immune, enzyme and metabolic modulators when used correctly. The problem is there aren’t regulations in place that ensure that the listed supplement facts and ingredients are actually what’s provided in the bottle. Are you willing to chance it?
I’m Olivia, Functional Fertility Dietitian, and Founder of Let’s Get Real RD, LLC.
Over the course of my career in functional nutrition I have seen countless times the total transformations that can be made when people “get real” about their health. Now that I am doing things my way, I am all in on “getting real” about fertility.
Maybe because my story is like many of the women’s I work with, maybe because I believe women are under-served and misdiagnosed far too often in traditional medicine, and definitely because it’s time for a change.
Did you know the median visit length at a doctor’s visit is 15.7 minutes? And you’re lucky to even get that! That’s hardly enough time to even ask about what foods you should be eating to optimize your gut health (mom’s gut=baby’s gut), that new prenatal that all of the celebrities are raving about, or talk about why you’re still tired even after getting eight hours of sleep, let alone learn how to balance your hormones and increase your fertility naturally!
That’s Where I Come In.
LGR provides functional fertility consulting for women who want a more personalized approach to everything hormone balance and fertility… much more than 15.7 minutes can offer. A “functional” approach means more than looking at what’s on the end of your fork. It’s about using your unique biochemistry to implement targeted lifestyle and dietary changes to achieve a fertile system – whether that is to prep for a baby now or for a year in the future. It’s recommended that this process begins 6-24 months before even starting to conceive, especially if you are or have been on birth control or have existing hormone issues.
PCOS or other Hormone Imbalances
PBCS (Post Birth Control Syndrome)
Family Planning For The Future
Who Do I Work With?
My programs are specifically designed for women under the age of 40 who are looking to either begin or sustain a healthy family.
Some women know they want to start a family at some point, but want to begin making changes today to have success when the time comes. It’s recommended to begin this 6-12 months ahead of time.
Many women I see haven’t really thought about their fertility because they have been busy building a career or traveling but then experience PBCS when they come off birth control or conception isn’t as easy as they thought.
Other women have already started a family, but know things today about the world of nutrition that they didn’t know before, and want help navigating a different approach to pregnancy this time around.
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, or a combination of these symptoms, it’s time to address the underlying cause(s) in order to optimize not only your fertility, but your life:
Period Fluctuations: heavy periods, no periods or sporadic periods
Mood Imbalances: PMS, anxiety, depression
Hormone Imbalances: PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, PBCS, thyroid disorder
Gut Issues: leaky gut, gas, bloating, constipation
Isn’t it time to actually understand how to optimize your wellness today so you can thrive tomorrow? In whatever your goal or timeline is, if you’re struggling with the following symptoms or just want to create the most optimal environment to nourish a healthy baby, let’s talk!
