Good oral hygiene doesn’t only make you more kissable—it also may make you more fertile. According to emerging research, dental health may impact how long it takes a woman to conceive.

  • An innovative, challenging wake-up call from a very bright committed woman. While nothing is in and of itself unique in this talk, it is indeed wonderfully brought together to give all of us food (sugar-free) for thought. Kudos to Dr. Marielle Pariseau for challenging us to do better.

  • I LOVE the analogy of “water to a marathon runner”! Thank you! I’ll soon ovulate and have an embryo transfer 5 days later. It will be a natural cycle. I wanted to stay away from taking the all progesterone and estrogen pills as I thought it was too much stuffs. However, thinking of taking a rub-on Pro-Gest cream. Does this “add-on” to the progesterone I already make in my body? Also, curious if you have any suggestions on this? I’ve heard about using a dime size amount once a day and to start administration following ovulation.

  • Great presentation. I was so pleased to hear that you were presenting in September and have been waiting to see the video. Thanks for sharing. We also need to continue to get the message out to our profession and the public.

  • Teeth most certainly can heal and can remineralize. Fluoride is toxic. Yes, sugar is very toxic too, but I’m so disappointed that she does not even discuss meridians…..which is most important of all!

    Old school thinking……

  • Hello Dr, Aimee….. I am a new subscriber of your videos. All your videos are very informative and I am thankful for all the knowledge you are giving us. I have few questions regarding my IVF treatment.
    I am 32 yrs old. Me and my husband trying to conceive from last 4 years. Our all the fertility tests are pretty much normal I had a miscarriage last year in may (4 week’s pregnancy). After that we decided to go for IVF and we discussed it with our GP and he agreed too. I had ivf treatment in March 2020 but had to remove the pregnancy tissue in 8th week of pregnancy because it was in my pouch of Douglas. It was a laparoscopy surgery. Now I have healed and we are doing our second IVF next month. Well, now I am just trying to prepare myself for all the injections, blood tests and egg retrieval. I am bit scared this time as I know it is a painful procedure mentally and physically. I am eating well balanced food, drinking plenty of water and have booked a fertility massage to heal my uterus and tubes. I was wondering is it a good idea to have a fertility massage in my case.? Please help me know what I can do this time to get best results. ��

  • Hey, so did you go ahead and give Dobbie Nerkstrol’s recommendation a fair try? Google her if you haven’t been able to get pregnant within 8 weeks. It’s about naturally boosting your fertility, and you don’t have to break the bank in the process.

  • Why wouldn’t teeth heal? They are made of the same stuff as bones. Bones heal. Dr. Weston Price reported on this 100 years ago. He was chairman of the ADA research division for like 10 years.

  • Not only every packed food Sugar is even in toothpaste.
    Everymorning you rub your decaying teeth with a good dose of sugar, flouride and other foaming chemicals.
    In fact you are serving breakfast for the bacteria inside your mouth before you even had yours.
    Such a loyal and romantic host parasite relationship would be very rare in the history of evolution itself.

  • That’s cause we are dealing/buying with/from Corporate WHORES. Corporate WHORES are also incompetent unable to produce products without harm else are doing so on purpose.
