I’m not Megan but I wanted to chime in because I also consulted with a naturopathic doctor and a Chinese acupuncturist in the hopes of optimizing my fertility (as an aside, I conceived my first child less than three months into the treatments, but I don’t mean to suggest that you will have the same results or for you to think that it’s not a good strategy if it does not bring you the desired results as quickly). Achieving balance across all of the body’s systems (especially the endocrine system, so closely linked to appetite and digestion and also ovulation) is a great thing and I hope you will experience broad health benefits across the spectrum as part of your journey, either before or after you conceive.
If you can’t give up your morning cup of joe, try a dandelion coffee substitute that you can make on your own (see The Hot Detox , p. 135!) or purchase at a health food store. Another option is to visit only indie coffee shops and purchase coffee that’s freshly roasted. “There’s a detox benefit to newly roasted coffee,” says Daniluk. “It’s a strong gallbladder tonic. Just try to take a break from over-processed conventional coffee from large chains. Their coffee is roasted and ground probably three months before you drink it.”
