Episode Summary

Have you ever noticed your cycle syncing with women around you or even with the moon? As women, we are cyclical beings, and optimizing your cycle by syncing with the moon is one of the best things you can do to support your reproductive health and overall wellbeing.

Getting Clear on Hormone Imbalance

Kela Smith is the CEO and program director of the Hormone Puzzle Society, a woman’s health hub for fertility, hormones, and the business of coaching. Kela works with women who are struggling with infertility and hormone imbalance and coaches them to get pregnant naturally and eliminate symptoms of hormone imbalance. She brings over 20 years of experience as a professional fitness trainer, wellness educator, and author, as well as a mama to two beautiful children.

There Is a Way to Get Pregnant Naturally

When Kela was told it would be nearly impossible for her to get pregnant naturally in her late 30’s, she took matters into her own hands. After giving birth at 37 and again at 40, she went back to school to help women realize that there is a better alternative and it is totally possible to get pregnant naturally later in life.

Our bodies have an innate capacity for healing naturally, but it is up to us to listen to our body needs so that we can provide it everything it needs to feel better, have fewer symptoms, and focus on what is in our control.

It All Comes Down to the Moon

The two most important things you can do to improve the syncing of your cycle start with diet and stress management. When we can follow the patterns of the moon, we can improve our reproductive health and overall physical health and well-being.

Reproduction is a miracle, and when we can optimize it, not only does our health benefit but our hormones, productivity, happiness, and mood do too. Even if you are not bleeding anymore, syncing your cycle with the moon can still have massive benefits on your whole body’s health.

“I left that doctor’s office, and I said ‘I am on a mission to optimize my fertility naturally’, and that’s exactly what I did. I figured out what I needed to eat, what my lifestyle needed to look like, my exercise was too much, my toxins were too much, I just really dove in.” (6:10)
