I already subscribe – how do I sign up for the forum?
I sent out an email to all current subscribers on Sunday night with the link to sign up. I’ll send out another one today to make sure everyone gets it! Normally I won’t send out so many emails, lest you get annoyed with me, but I do want to make sure everyone knows about and can sign up. So check your emails, and by tonight there should be something else from me. (and check your spam too!)
When can I download the ebooklet?
I started putting the free ebooklet together this weekend and it just keeps getting longer! Last night I was up to 20 pages and I have a few more things I want to add in today. I should have it ready to go tonight for you all.
What’s the menu like – is it strict or friendly to food sensitivities?
The menus posted will just be sample menus. You in no way have to follow them to the T, and can make your own substitutions. I also have a couple of menus that are put together by some holistic health professionals with links to a bunch of recipes. But you won’t be kicked out of the challenge if you follow your own menus. The sample ones are just ideas of how to get in some nutrient dense foods.
I want to join in but feel I can’t follow a “diet” during the holidays.
No worries. This challenge is a bit more than just nutrition, and we’ll be covering different aspects of balancing hormones. Yes, nutrition is important, and we’ll talk a lot about it, but you can easily join in even if you head to a few holiday parties/dinners and indulge a bit. We can always extend grace to ourselves.
Can I join in if I’m pregnant or nursing?
Yes, but there will be aspects of balancing hormones that won’t apply to you. A good nutrient dense diet is important for you, but you’ll also want your body to naturally be where it needs to be hormonally. You don’t want to use herbs to force your system to ovulate when you’re nursing – because it’s the body’s way of naturally not getting pregnant. I’ll be posting about this in the coming month as well. You’re welcome to join in, even if it’s to learn for later – but I do ask that the forum be kept free of talk on pregnancy and nursing as many of the women joining in are dealing with infertility or the loss of a baby.
I’m now mid-cycle, can I join in?
Yes – it doesn’t matter where you are in your cycle! We won’t all be on the same page when it comes to this, but that’s ok. All of the information and posts throughout the month will discuss what to do at each point in the cycle if it’s something that you only do during part of the cycle.
We deal with male infertility, would this challenge even be helpful?
Sure! All of the nutritional guidelines are just as important for men as they are for women and will help balance his hormones. Charting is really important when dealing with male factor infertility as you’ll need to know when you’re most fertile. Plus, while the forum is just for women, it’s a great way to get support for healthy changes, ask questions, and connect with others.
What will I learn during this challenge?
I want to focus on a few key issues: nutrition and supplements, charting, and exercise. Things that we need to get into the habit of doing well, and doing regularly. Throughout the month I’ll be posting about these and more, on the blog for everyone to read. The free ebooklet also has information about these topics, but if you have questions about anything else, you can be free to ask on the forum and any other member (or I) can chime in and help. This is not a teaching challenge per se, though I will be offering information. This is a challenge to come together and support each other as we make healthy changes and get in to the habit of things like… say charting.
I hope you’ll join me, we have LOTS of women already signed up!
