Can I Have a Healthy Baby When I Have An Autoimmune?

Listen to “Can I Have a Healthy Baby When I Have An Autoimmune?” on Spreaker.

In my health journey, I’ve learned there are multiple things we can do to increase our odds of a positive outcome. That’s why we are happy to welcome back Nikki Burnett, MS CNTP MNT, a Functional Nutritionist and Founder of Taste Life Nutrition, to discuss a topic we have yet to chat about…

We call Nikki Burnett our ‘Health Detective’ because Nikki has been on both sides: in practice for seven years as a Functional Nutritionist and over 20 years of study, Nikki is a thriver too. After suffering a 2-year headache that affected every part of her life and dealing with the frustration of feeling helpless with no answers, she decided to take her health into her own hands.

Over time and with consistent research into many health modalities, Nikki found the answers she needed to heal. Now Nikki is helping her clients regain their health, and along the way, she has discovered a passion for helping those struggling with infertility.

In this episode, Nikki shares with us

• How even small changes in your nutrition can make a significant impact,
• How your environment can affect your fertility,
• What hormones have to do with your immune system, autoimmune and fertility,
• Tips to consider when trying for a family plus much more…

More about our guest: Through her program called SoulFull Conception, Nikki Burnett helps you achieve optimal health so that when it is time to try for a family, you are prepared and have a plan of action for your and your baby’s health.

After graduating from The Nutrition Therapy Institute, Nikki opened Taste of Life Nutrition, where she and her dedicated team look at each person as a whole, not separate parts. No one-size-fits-all approach will suffice as you rejuvenate your life. She and her team are dedicated to finding balance in the bodies of both the mother and father is necessary to create and maintain a pregnancy and your perfect little person. Learn more at
