I received a personal message yesterday after a long day at work. And it’s my favorite type of message - a pregnancy success story.
One of my listeners wanted to let me know that she has been following me for a few months and she incorporated my diet advice as part her daily routine. She is now pregnant and planning her gender reveal party.
It was so amazing to receive this message. First, she took the time out of her day to write me a note, and secondly, I’m so happy that I was able to make a difference on her journey.
For many of you, hearing about success stories is a double edged sword. It can certain give you a ray of hope, that “if she can do it, I can too.” But it can also cause the comparison blues
“Why is it so easy for her, but not me?”
Sure the FOMO Syndrome might be partly to blame here. We see Facebook and Instagram posts of cute pregnancy selfies, baby bump pictures and baby nursery decor. It’s hard not to feel like we’re missing out on all of those things.
But today, I want to actually address your burning questions “why her, not me.” Yes, there is a very real explanation why it maybe easy for some but others to get pregnant. At the end of this episode, you’re going to feel a whole lot better because you can actually do something about it.

Season 3 Episode 9: How to Avoid FOMO and Be Happier
If you’ve been listening to my podcast for a while, you most likely have heard the period series where I talked about how to know if your cycle is fertile. And one of the ways to gauge whether or not your cycle is fertile is the pain level of your period.
In a nutshell, if your period is super painful that means the energy and the blood are both really stuck. And when that happens, the uterus is not an ideal environment for implantation.
Today, I’ve asked Jocey from the office to come on the show. You’ve all heard me singing her praises because she is amazing.
We’re going to talk about painful periods. You know that Time-of-the-Month that you dread, not just because it means a big fat negative, but for a lot of you it means excruciating pain, you end up having to take a lot of pain killers, and sometimes it affects your quality of life, you have to cancel events, and call out from work.
Jocey has suffered from painful periods her whole life, and she has cracked the code to pain-free periods. She is going to go over her exact monthly routine and what she does to prepare her body to make sure the blood is flowing smoothly.
What Jocey is going to share is not just for painful periods though. Remember how all the energetics in your body are all connected, so by working on one you’re working on others. When one improves, they all improve. What you’re about to learn is not only going to help reduce the pain level of the period, it’s going to make the entire cycle more fertile overall.

Today’s episode is going to be on FOMO, have you ever heard of that word? FOMO, fear of missing out. That grass is always greener feeling, and there’s always something better out there.
Have you ever had this uneasy and anxious feeling that everyone else’s life is better than yours? Are you the type of read at least 10 reviews before buying a toaster just to make sure that there’s nothing better than this one toaster you’re thinking about getting?
Or how about this, you’ve heard about this big party, and you’re not really sure if you want to go but at the same time you’re thinking well what it’s super fun, you don’t want to miss out, but you really would rather stay home and watch a movie.
FOMO actually made it into the Oxford dictionary in 2013, and by definition it mean the uneasy and sometimes all-consuming feeling that you’re missing out – that your peers are doing, in the know about, or in possession of more or something better than you.
Suffering from FOMO has real consequences. My goal for this episode is to open up the dialogue and conversation about FOMO because I feel like most of us who suffer from FOMO don't realize that it's alive and well.
So we're going to talk about how to avoid FOMO so we can all make better decisions and feel good about those decisions.
I’m sure never in a million years would you have thought that in your late twenties and early thirties that you would be battling acne again. You’re excited to put that awkward teenage years behind you, but the acne just keep following you around. It’s so frustrating that no matter what type of face wash, moisturizer that you use, and zit zapper like salicylic acid, these annoying pimples always pop up especially in the week or two before your period and they don’t go away until after your period is finished.
You’ve probably heard that it’s normal to have acne before period, it’s because of the hormones are acting. But which hormones are acting up and why are they acting up, and what can you do about it? These are all the questions we’re going to talk about in this episode.
