Being pregnant and starting a family is one of the most beautiful experiences for a woman. But for an increasing number of couples, trying to conceive is an emotional roller coaster that ends in heartbreak. Diet, lifestyle, and environmental toxins are all responsible for our ever decreasing fertility. Plastic water bottles, the lid on our take-out coffee, the cleaning products in your home all contain hormone disrupting chemicals. What’s the solution? Enter today’s guest, Dr. Katherine Zagone, MD.
Dr. Zagone is a naturopathic doctor and founder of the Holistic Fertility Method. Her Fertility Formula approach covers everything from diet to emotions, as well as the environmental toxins we expose ourselves to unknowingly every day. Dr. Zagone combines the mind of a doctor, the heart of a healer and the strong feminine energy of a belly-dancer to guide her clients through a holistic journey that optimizes their health, so they can start creating the family of their dreams.

Dr. Zagone’s Bio:
After witnessing family members struggle with infertility for years, she felt compelled to find solutions for her patients in similar agonizing situations.
She considers each client’s individual needs as she surveys the whole landscape of your life when crafting the perfect fertility formula.
She empowers clients to create their healthiest lives to conceive and to create their healthiest child possible.
Her holistic approach provides a nurturing experience while addressing medical, functional, environmental, emotional, and energetic causes of infertility.
Dr. Zagone graduated top of her class from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine where she completed internships in natural fertility and preconception. She received her Bachelors of Science in Health Science from Benedictine University in IL, where she graduated Summa cum laude.
She assisted in the training of the next generation of naturopathic doctors at Bastyr University California. She also authors content for Orb Health, and supports patient care at Shine Natural Medicine. As an elite guest lecturer, she has spoken at UCSD and throughout the community on topics including hormones and gut health.
As a belly dancer and champion for feminine power, she embodies the fertile goddess and helps her female clients access their own embodiment to promote fertility.

Food is a representation of how we treat ourselves and the world around us. It’s also such a big, integral part of our lives. We eat day in and day out, and are constantly making choices around it. No wonder food is often times a source of stress, worry and confusion in our lives, even after taking such a big step like going vegan. We go vegan and think, that’s it, we never have to worry again. Then we’re overwhelmed with all the truckloads of information reaching us daily. We sit there and wonder “how can I improve my choices?” “how can I find balance between the foods I love to eat and making healthy ones?”. That’s where My Brownble comes in.
