One question I am asked over and over is how can doTERRA help with infertility. Unfortunately, I think we have a rise in fertility issues over the last couple of decades and I feel much of it has to do with candida overgrowth in our gut. Cleaning up our diet and resolving the candida issue would help many of those women who are on the rollercoaster ride of infertility. This often puts a strain on relationships and it definitely plays havoc on one’s emotional state of wellbeing sometimes to the point of depression.
When I talk about a candida cleanse I often hear the response, “well I don’t ever get yeast infections”. You can have an overgrowth of candida/yeast, without ever getting a vaginal yeast infection, candida is in the gut.
Other symptoms of candida might include, fatigue, irritability, drained or depressed, poor memory headache, skin problems, PMS, persistent digestive issues like heartburn, indigestion, bloating, gas, constipation, or you have joint pain, nasal congestion, recurrent sore throats, cough or sinus infections, actually, the list goes on and on. Overall when you have an overgrowth of candida in your body, it definitely will weaken your immune system. It is the precursor or all major diseases.
Yeast is a fungus and it feeds off a host, in this case, the “host” is your body. It disrupts the endocrine system, and both your thyroid gland and ovaries are highly sensitive to yeast. Yeast is tricky; it mimics a lot of things trying to hide in the body.
This is why I recommend cleaning up your environment and lifestyle as well as your diet. Are you washing all your fruits and veggies before eating them? I like to do this with lemon essential oil in a sink of water. Have you switched to doTERRA’s brand of hair products with all the good stuff and none of the bad? What kind of toothpaste are you using? What Chemicals are you using to clean your toilets, sinks, and bathtub with? These and many more questions are good to ask yourself as you are paying attention to what your body is taking in.
Stress also plays an important role in this infertility topic. When our bodies are under stress we produce the hormone cortisol. Its nickname is the stress hormone, and it inhibits our production of progesterone. Grapefruit essential oil helps prevent cortisol from blocking the production of progesterone.
Keep in mind, this clean-up we are doing may take months to create the balance you are looking for. It’s definitely not a “get pregnant quick” plan, be patient and know that you are serving your body well.

DDR Prime helps to repair and protect DNA or destroy damaged DNA. Cells have a limited lifespan for performing their many unique and specialized functions in an organism. A normal and natural mechanism for maintaining optimal cell function is a process of cellular renewal called apoptosis in which older cells are eliminated through a process of self-regulated destruction, and new cells are made to replace old cells. Through this process, humans replace the approximate equivalent of their body weight in new cells every year! If cellular apoptosis and regeneration are compromised, sub-optimal health conditions may follow.
Avoid sugar, grains, dairy, fruit juice and caffeine
Follow this protocol until pregnant, then discontinue GX Assist.
