Featured Guest: Nancy Wolfson-Moche
Hosted by: Marisa Marinelli
At age 43, Nancy Wolfson-Moche wanted to conceive. She was not eligible for “hi-tech” fertility treatments (IVF) due to an elevated FSH level (which western medicine said was normal in a healthy 43-year-old woman). MD’s said the FSH level may fluctuate, but once it goes over 30 it is an indication that the eggs are too old and not viable to conceive a healthy baby. Nancy’s FSH level was as high as 38. Through a macrobiotic diet and lifestyle, and by following the recommendations of Denny Waxman, her FSH went from 38 to 6 over a 12 month period. Two months later she went on a trip around the world and conceived her first child, somewhere between Bhutan and southern Spain, at 44. She gave birth to a full-term, healthy baby girl at age 45. Her second daughter was born when she was 51.
Nancy Wolfson-Moche is a New York City-based nourishment counselor, educator, and writer guiding women, children, and families on improving their health and well-being through making informed diet and lifestyle choices. She leads food-awareness workshops for children from 2 to 14 years old.
