There are no guarantees when it comes to successfully conceiving a healthy baby, but there are steps you can take to make sure the very basis of your baby’s life, your genetic raw material, is as healthy as possible even before you conceive. It’s during the preconception period that your baby’s raw genetic material is being formed and influenced.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Afrouz Demeri, a licensed board-certified Naturopathic Medical Doctor specializing in integrative, Functional Medicine for women. Dr. Afrouz finds the root cause for hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, stress, weight or digestive issues, fatigue, depression, and anxiety. As faculty of the University of California Irvine, she sees patients at the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute or in her Ladera Ranch office in California.
Dr. Afrouz has been featured in publications such as Women’s Health, Now Magazine, Weight Wise Expo, and Vitality. When she’s not helping patients find their own lifelong wellness, you can find her studying yoga, cooking for her family of four, or teaching—and dancing—at the local Zumba studio.
In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Afrouz talk about all things fertility and how the 90-day period prior to conceiving a baby has the potential to change the genetic code of your baby. They discuss the toxins that can negatively affect your fertility and the overall health of your baby, as well as the importance of detoxing prior to conception. They also talk about how food is the most powerful form of medicine we can use to shift our epigenetics and how what we eat impacts overall egg and sperm quality, and the difference between a healthy diet and a fertility diet.
I know you’ll love this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
