 Answered: Your Most Burning Questions about Infertility

Mother Nature’s natural fertility rate is only about 20% per month for a healthy, fertile 30-year-old woman. That means that for every 100 fertile 30-year-old women trying to get pregnant in one cycle, 20 will be successful and the other 80 will have to try again.

Two Ways to Find Stability & Balanced Mental Health



Feeling a little anxious from time to time? 

Sometimes feeling little a down can change how we want to continue with the day.

College students are struggling with feelings of anxiety and low mood. Everywhere you turn these days, it seems, people are struggling with their mental health. I find that I need to do something about it. 

Nearly one in five (19 percent) U.S. adults experience some form of mental illness

One in 24 (4.1 percent) has a serious mental illness

One in 12 (8.5 percent) has a substance use disorder

Mental illness is treatable with Chinese Medicine and essential oils can support any existing practices you are currently using. 

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, emotional strains can cause Liver Qi Stagnation, which can attack the Spleen hampering the production of Qi and Blood.  This lack of Qi and Blood fails to properly nourish the Heart and Mind and causes depression. Liver Qi Stagnation can also easily cause Blood stasis, which also leads to a failure to properly nourish the Heart and Mind and causes depression.

When noticing that my patients feel anxious Balance essential oil blend help promote a feeling of calm and collectedness.  

If I'm in a rush and have a big day ahead of me I use essential oils to help me relax my mind along with a meditative practice that I learned from my coach Ami at Self Discovery Life Mastery

I feel grounded and focused when I use Balance essential oil topically just before get into my positive mental awareness state.

How To Be Patient- Meditation isn't What You Think It Is.

Does meditation sound complicated to you? Don’t be discouraged, meditation is a daily practice. It’s a moment to clear our mind, allow thoughts to flow and not stagnate. The help with certain devices can be useful. There are many apps that help us find peace inside. Whatever you choose to use, the secret is frequency. The more you meditate the more ideas can flow, your blood pressure decrease and your nervous system begins to relax. Your thought process is more clear and the things you have been battling become less bothersome. Meditation is taking our focus off of what is holding us back and putting or focus on the present moment.

Meditation is one of the five branches in Chinese medicine. It’s a very important practice and can be practiced with movement. It is considered, exercise of the mind.

I often reflect on books and videos to learn more about the perspective of other’s before me with a much more profound knowledge and experience with meditation. I like to listen to Wayne Dyer How To Meditiate and Ekarte Tolle.

Qi Gong is the most influential exercise especially as we continue to age.

I have used several resources to help me calm my thoughts and bring my focus to the present moment. In this same practice I learn to discern what I allow myself to put my attention on. Distraction is everywhere. Or phones, friends family and work. Time with self, is essential.

Digital Health Miami Discuss The Efficacy of Health Apps

Health apps

What if you need your prescription filled forgot what to do. How do you take your prescription? How do you remember what interactions certain drugs have when you are given a long list of contraindications and side effects? Now  days you can go home with an app that reminds you when your refill is needed and a list of drug interactions with it. These have been called mhealth Apps and already being used by doctors and patients. 

Mobile apps have created the most impressive changes to the consumers experience. New apps are revolutionizing the healthcare system. Seven apps are in their first generation and four apps have already been launched.  Location Intelligence and Drone Response are two new apps Marendra Kini MD, MHA,  CEO of Miami Children's Health System spoke about at the Startupbootcamp Digital Health Launch Party at the Buildingco workspace in Miami.   

Location Intelligence-  uses tracking to drive efficiency work flow and limit risk. For example, a two dimensional wrist band with bluetooth technology that links to a patients medical record and sends notification to the location when there is a problems recognized.  In that moment of urgency that is when one decides to do something about the problem.  

Drone Response- Consider a drone that can bring emergency supplies and instruction to people in hard to locate environments like the Amazon, an emergency on the top of a building or .  How is a vehicle going to get to you? A completely configured drone with specific packages that can independently get to you.  If that drone has to cameras this will give the doctor command to deliver instruction in an emergency. Narendra Kini is working with developers who build the network and the technology with partners  to provide protocols for emergency assistance in the most remote areas. 

The possibilities are endless and entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply for the accelerator program to get their company on the fast track. is thriving in Europe and breaking ground in Miami.
