Episode Eighty Five: Dr Shala Salem Talks Through Conventional and Natural Methods for Boosting Fertility
Dr Shala Salem joins me in this week’s podcast, to discuss her field of optimising fertility with conventional treatment combined with integrative and natural medicine practises. Dr Shala began on this path when she stumbled across a conference on integrative medicine after completing her residency training and realised she wanted to explore this further.
Dr Shala talks about her experiences of transforming her health with ways including addressing environmental toxins, and the impact they were having on her health. She went from dealing with intense stress, working too much, minimal sleeping and a poor diet, – and seeing the effects of this on her wellbeing – to thriving while eliminating all the toxins from her life.
In this podcast we discuss the worst contributors to fertility issues that are often overlooked, and when to get your first check up while dealing with these issues. Dr Salem advises that it’s “never too early to get the basics tested”, and to meet with a trusted doctor early on that will hear you and your goals to ensure you’re in good hands throughout your journey.
We also talk about the worst culprits in our environment such as BPA, and talk through alternatives of these products, like replacing plastics where possible with glass to avoid the risk completely or even researching the replacement to BPA in products to be aware of what you’re bringing into your home.
Dr Shala also shares some conventional methods for those who are struggling with fertility and food choices that promote overall good health, including a chat about supplements and when to use them.
