Conscious Fertility

Feb 21, 2023

Can our thoughts and feelings impact our physical well-being?


That’s the question we’re setting out to answer this week on the Conscious Fertility podcast. I’m joined by Dawson Church Ph.D., the founder of the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare, to talk with me about the incredible link our mindset has to our mental, emotional, and physical well-being — and the impact it could have on our fertility.


In previous episodes, we’ve talked a lot about EFT, or the Emotional Freedom Technique, and how quickly it can rewire our brains to heal past trauma. In this episode, Dawson Church will share how EFT and having a positive mindset have led to positive fertility outcomes for couples struggling to conceive, helped people heal from PTSD, and taught others to turn adversity into conscious growth. 


If you’re ready to build a more blissful brain and experience more joy — whether you’re on a fertility journey or not — join us as we explore the fascinating abilities of our minds!
