How my infertility journey can help you! KELA SMI TH

Have you ever wanted something so bad you could taste it? Like your bones ached for it and you longed for it day in and day out? As if your life won't be complete until you have what you want. I will never forget those long years my husband and I spent trying for a baby. We did what most people do. We met, fell in love and knew we wanted a family right away. Hell I have wanted to be a mom since I was a little girl playing with my baby dolls. We thought it would be so easy. I mean we are told our whole lives to be careful. Abstain from sex because you will get pregnant, don't hold hands or kiss a boy, you might get pregnant. How naive was I to think it was that easy. Once we got married we got to work (literally). Trying every day for our baby. Month after month came and

went and still no baby. After about 6 months of trying, we finally came to the conclusion that we needed to get our doctor involved. We went to see my OBGYN and she ran a bunch of tests only to be told that we were fine and to keep trying. So a few more months went by and still no baby. That is when we tried a local fertility center. There they prescribed Clomid (I know now a very harsh and WAY overprescribed fertility drug). Three rounds of that and still no baby. That is when they suggested I have my tubes blown out. (A procedure where they insert a tube into your cervix and blow die through to check for blocks. I know fun, right).

"She thought she could fly, so she did. She flew and continues to fly!"

Try, try, try some more. Still no baby. That is when the doctors recommended IUI. This was a procedure that was very expensive and not guaranteed. Why can't I just get pregnant. It's so easy right. That's what they told me. What was wrong with me. I didn't understand. After many restless nights and lots of prayers, we decided enough was enough. We decided that we would have that baby and many. We decided to take my health into our own hands and that is exactly what we did. I got really curious with my body. What foods were going to help put my body and my health into the optimal state for conception. How was exercise affecting my adrenals and hormones, how was the stress of this blocking my ability to conceive. How were these restless nights playing a role. How did all of this tie together and was preventing us from getting pregnant.

Once I figured this out, I was able to conceive not once but twice. We now have two healthy baby boys who are 3 and 6 and our lives our complete. That is the reason I got into this work and why I am so passionate about helping women and couples who are struggling with infertility and hormone imbalance. I do not want another women to suffer the way I did. I want to help you reverse your infertility diagnosis and get pregnant naturally. That is why I am gifting you my two free cookbooks and my master class. These cookbooks are packed full of quick, easy and delicious recipes. These recipes are the ones I used to help reverse my unexplained infertility. My master class, The hormone puzzle is packed full of simple action steps that you can begin doing today. If you are already doing fertility treatments these will work together to help you achieve even greater results. If you want to take a more natural approach, these recipes and the info in this class is exactly what you need to put you on the right path to a health baby.

Ingredients:

1 Cup Coffee Grounds 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil 15 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Once scrub has been combined transfer into a glass container to be stored in shower or bathroom. When ready to use apply to damp or wet skin in circular motion. Be careful of any open cuts the peppermint oil can cause sensitivity. Leave on for 1-2 minutes and rinse off. That is why taking a few minutes everyday to meet our own needs is not selfish or vain. It is a necessity. It helps if you think of it as a bank account. The more you invest, the more you will have to give in the future. When was the last time you invested in yourself? Take the time today to reward and replenish your reserves. Even as little as five minutes can change the outcome of your day for the better.

Too often we forget to take time out for ourselves. We have been conditioned over the years to put others before ourselves. While I am all for giving back as much as possible, what happens when we have given everthing we have?

"If there is no road to where you're going make one!"

If you’re a skateboarder and you want to become a global influencer you’re not going to target a bunch of women in a quilting group, or a group of vegan chiefs, right? Usually you are looking for the mirror image of you. Now that you figured that out what kind of content would you like to share with the world? Keep in mind everything you are accountable for your message to the world, everything you put out there you are responsible for. So if you’re a skateboard first do no harm, don’t post videos of you doing a 720 Gazelle Flip without the proper safety gear. Yes, I had to google the “scariest skateboard trick” so I could throw that in there. its name.

My question to you is what kind of I influence do you want to put out into the world? It might sound like a lot of fun being smack dab in the middle of social media as an influencer, but with that honor, comes a ton of responsibility.

THE PRICE OF FAME

Everything you say and do is looked at, listened to and duplicated so again I ask. “WHAT KIND OF INFLUENCE DO YOU WANT TO PUT OUT INTO THE WORD?” Once you have that figured out it gets a lot easier, then you just ask yourself who are you targeting?

My final tip to you would be to simply stop selling and pitching to people. You are enough and once you recognize that in yourself you will be open to receiving the flow of followers, friends and connections your going to make.  1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

EXPERIENCES OVER TOYS

B y: Mel i ssa Ross

Their “best day EVER” becomes the day that you put everything down and just spent time with them. Whether it was an ice cream date on a hot day or an angel in the snow, it was unforgettable. Learning this lesson from my children, I offered them the choice of an alternative Christmas gift one year. “What do you think about Mommy buying you a vacation instead of toys for Christmas?” As you can imagine, they were filled with questions about what that meant for them. Would Santa still bring them a gift? Would they still have a stocking? Would they get to choose the destination?

Un w rap the g i ft that keeps g iving .

At a very young age, our children teach us a valuable lesson. The unwrapping has come and gone, the glamour of the shiny new toys has worn off, and for most little ones, the excitement is in the box. They spend hours climbing in and out, crafting it into a super rocket ship to take them to the moon. Or perhaps a shiny race car that wins them first prize on the baby circuit. All the while, parents quip about the money spent on toys collecting dust and the rocket ship box that’s harboured in a protective corner of the house. The lesson learned? – That the experiences had travelling to imaginary far off places deep inside the box were far more valuable than the toy inside. Months later, the toys were discarded without memory of their existence, but the time that they stepped onto that imaginary moon lay forever in their hearts. As our children grow, they continue to teach us the same lesson in more grown-up ways.

EXPERIENCES OVER TOYS! B y Mel i ssa Ross

My then 9-year-old, son was immediately on-board, but my 6- year-old daughter was reluctant. However, she agreed to try it once and see how it felt. That first year, we didn’t venture far. I gifted my kids a trip to Florida to their grandparents’ condo for the school spring break. They spent nine days touring all of the local attractions. They met turtles and pirates and famous dolphins. They played at the beach, ate ice cream and learned how to play shuffleboard with Pa. They even got rained out of the Tampa Bay Rays’ spring training. They had the time of their lives and were hooked on travel. The minute we got home, they were full of ideas for next year’s trip, and the tradition began - Experiences over toys.

Does your experience need to be an expensive plane ride away? Absolutely not. It could be family ski lessons or a weekend away. Whatever is in your budget. The key to the experience, my friends, is YOU. The time that you take away from the hustle and bustle of work and life to spend with your little ones is all the experience they will ever need and holds far greater value than any toy could ever match. This Christmas, I encourage you all to take time away to spend with your little ones to create the greatest “best day EVER”.

Meet your expert Scott Gates Scott was blessed to grow up in Southern California. Not in a big city, but where people could ride there horses to a restaurant, and you waved at everyone driving by. He also grew up with lots of childhood illness, constant digestive issues, terrible allergies, and asthma.

He has endured the stress of owning his IT company, and the drain and damage that stress can do to your health.

Coach Scott’s program’s are more than just for guys working out. It’s about bringing your “A” game into their health, business, family, mindset, and career. In todays world, there are very few programs that support being a man. I started this after years of hearing women complain about their guys. And trust me, I spend as more time sticking up for guys and coaching women on men, as I do on supporting the guys I work with in this program. What game have you got?

CREATE MESSAGES THAT ATTRACT PAYING CLIENTS. BY RACHEL FELDMAN

A simple 2-step process.

Create a post on Facebook saying that you’re launching your new business (or new program or offer). Say this in your post: “I’m giving away 1 free program to 5-10 amazing people who want to stop yo-yo dieting, quit their sugar addiction, and have tons more energy. In exchange, I’ll ask you for a 30-minute interview and testimonial. The people I’m looking for are [insert qualities of your ideal clients]." You’ll us that 30-minute interview to ask them questions and get feedback on your program. You’ve already got a network of friends, family, and co-workers, and they’re probably your biggest cheerleaders. If you’re a new coach, start by tapping into your current network and talking to people who might fit your ideal client profile. Here's how: Online: Reach out to people you know (friends and family) who already TRUST you. Make the same offer to have 5-10 people join your program for free in exchange for feedback and a testimonial. If you’re already an established coach, announce the beta test of your new program for a deeply discounted rate. Again, in exchange for feedback and a testimonial. Get on calls with the people you’ve invited into your free or discounted program, and ask them questions like: What are you struggling with when it comes to ______ (insert what you help with)? What do you wish your health, life, etc. looked like instead? What have you tried in the past that hasn’t worked? When you’re searching for answers, what format appeals to you? (quick fix, deeper support, checklist, video, etc?) What did you gain from joining my program? What did you achieve? (ask this after you’ve coached them) Step 2: Get your ideal clients on the phone and ask questions. The simple 2-step process below will help you understand exactly what your ideal client is struggling with, how they think and feel, and how to find the exact words to use in your messaging. Step 1: Do Some Practice Coaching or Beta Testing Offline:

CREATE MESSAGES THAT ATTRACT The things your ideal clients say inform what kinds of free and paid programs you offer, and they become the messaging you use to sell your programs. If you interview an ideal client, and they say:“I’m so tired. I haven’t slept through the night in months. I’m chugging coffee all day just to make it through work, and I end up eating frozen pizza on the couch every night because I’m too exhausted to cook.”

Your offer could be about “Healthy Sleep Habits” or “Eating for Sleep”.

Your messaging will be - “Sick of feeling tired all the time? You haven’t slept through the night in months. You’re chugging coffee all day just to make it through work. And you end up eating frozen pizza on the couch every night because you’re too exhausted to cook. Sound like you? I’ve got something you need to see…”

“A profitable message mirrors what your ideal client has to say - in there own words”

Apples are high in fiber and water - two qualities that make the filling.

Recipe by Dr. Dee

Who hasn't heard the saying "an apple a day will keep the doctor away"? What is it about these fruits that makes them so powerful and beneficial for our health? When it comes to apples there are quite a few things they have the ability to aid in. One of my personal favorite things about apples is their ability to help wake you up. In fact, did you know the scent alone of an apple has the ability to help wake you up more than that of a cup of coffee? Apples are also very filling due in part to their high fiber content. Not to mention the taste and variety makes them an ideal addition to any menu when you are looking to lose weight.

With the new year just around the corner these metabolism revving wonders can you reach this years weight loss goals. Apples are also filled with multiple vitamins and minerals that can help stimulate both you immune and digestive systems. They are also amazing for promoting good oral hygiene. Luckily, for us apples are a winter fruit which means they are available at a lower cost this season. Be sure to check out the Best Holisitic Life blog regularly for more amazing recipes featuring this wonder fruit and get ready to see a whole new you!

Blueberries ranked number one in antioxidant health benefits in a comparison with more than 40 fresh fruits and vegetables.

Recipe by Dr. Dee

Blueberries are widely recognized as a superfood and can enhance almost all areas of your health, and your skin is no exception to this rule. These small, juicy fruits are one of the richest sources of antioxidants you'll find and these antioxidants will protect your skin from harmful free radicals that accelerate the visible sings of aging. They're also an excellent source of vitamin C which promotes the production of collagen in the body - a connective tissue which helps the skin maintain it's elasticity and youthful appearance. When it comes to eating berries, you have lots of options. They can be eaten on their own as a snack, combined with yogurt to add flavor or even used as part of a berry based fruit salad.

One of my favorite ways to use seasonal fruits such as blueberries is in this delicious recipe. Consumption of blueberries has been linked to health benefits

including a reduced risk of cancer, increased insulin response, a reversal in age- related memory loss, and lowering blood pressure.

Nurishing Lotion

With winter finally here that means colder claimants that have a tendency to remove moisture from the air and you. Whom amongst us doesn't want soft and hydrated skin year round? You would think with all the additional moisture in the form of rain or snow in our environment that we would need less lotion or moisturizer in the winter. Unfortunately, in the winter the humidity level drops. This causes the moisture inside our skin to evaporate more quickly. Resulting in skin that feels tight and dry. In fact, in the winter your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold its moisture.

How can you avoid dry skin this season? Keep your skin protected and covered, stay hydrated, and use this indulgent lotion recipe!

Nurishing Lotion recipe: -2 tsp Grape-seed oil

-1 tsp Vitamin E oil -2 tsp Aloe vera gel

H O W T O K E E P Y O U R S K I N L O O K I N G & F E E L I N G I T ' S B E S T !

This time of year, we experience a much higher stress level compared to the rest of the year. With tensions high we can see a decline in our health. By eating foods that are naturally abundant during this time of year, we are providing our bodies with the nutrients that need to be replenished within us. Have you ever noticed that you crave certain foods depending on the time of year? Personally, I can't go through a summer without eating a ton of watermelon and pineapple. Turns out these two fruits are filled with electrolytes and extremely hydrating. In the winter I crave apples, pears, and tons of spices. Not to mention all of those delicious baked root vegetables you see covering everyone's holiday tables. Ever wonder why?

REPLENISH & RENEW I tell my clients all the time to learn from nature. There truly is a reason for every season. Like all mothers, Mother nature wants you to be happy and healthy year round too! That is why eating seasonally can be so beneficial to your wellbeing. Most winter foods are nutrient dense and packet with fiber and anti-inflammatory properties. There is a reason! By Dr . Dee

THE POWER IN NUTRITION

What we put into our bodies directly determines what we can get out of them . It is imperative that we provide our bodies with the building materials they desperately need . If you feel like something is off in regards to your health , your nutrition should be the first thing you evaluate !

"YOUR BODY IS CONSTANTLY TALKING TO YOU, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LISTEN TO IT!"

With the weather constantly driving us indoors it is nice to have delicious hot foods that have the power to warm us inside and out. The next time you go to your neighborhood grocery store, or even better farmer market, take a look at which foods are in abundance. It is a great way to find out what is in season and even better these foods are often much lower in cost due to their abundance in season. At the end of the day, if you are looking to improve your health in a quick, easy, and natural way, you need to focus on nutrition. Luckily, here at the Best Holistic Life we pride ourselves on providing you with tons of healthy recipes that taste great. If you need additional help in making the power of Mother nature work for you, feel free to contact me directly at AskDrDee.com.
