Dr. Miranda Myles is a passionate and sought-after naturopath and acupuncturist who’s transforming health and hormones and creating fertility and families. With over 20 years of experience treating 20,000 patients, she is a highly experienced and qualified thought leader in her field of fertility, IVF/DEIVF support, gynecology, thyroid health, male factor (in)fertility, children’s health, and mental/emotional health.

Over the summer, Miranda shared some crazy stats on male infertility, and I just had to have her on the podcast to talk about this mind-blowing information. In this episode, we talk about the ridiculous, one-track focus on female fertility, the significant decline in male fertility over the last 40 years, the parameters we should look at in a semen analysis, what normal sperm morphology looks like, the massive drop in reference ranges, environmental factors that impact sperm health and what men can do to improve it, and so much more. Your world will be rocked when you hear this episode!

A Nutrisense CGM is an incredible way to monitor your blood sugar levels in real-time and their app helps you see exactly how your diet and lifestyle specifically affect your blood sugar. I recently tried a Nutrisense CGM and it was a game-changer. It was amazing to see how my meals and specific foods were affecting me positively or negatively. There was a whole lot of experimentation while using it to see what worked best for me and some foods were real shockers. Now you can get a Nutrisense CGM and take $25 off your first month of service. This includes two CGMs to be used for two weeks each, the app, and a month of free dietitian support. That support is invaluable and the best part of the service.
