Looking to get pregnant and confused about cleansing protocols?
A study done by the Environmental Working Group found 287 different pollutants and toxins in the cord blood of only 10 infants.* Approximately 1 in 6 couples deals with infertility. And while genetics, lifestyle, and diet are factors, the toxins we carry also inhibit reproduction. So how do we cleanse our bodies in order to increase the odds of conception and lay the foundation for good health for our babies?
Too often couples begin rigorous cleansing program before trying to conceive and they end up feeling sick and deprived. They want only to prepare their bodies in the best way possible, but it can soon become a struggle. Many times it can cause more harm than good depending on how many toxins have been stored in their cells, causing the problematic compounds to start circulating again through the body, making them sicker than they were before, or disrupting reproductive function.
It’s important to cleanse before conception, but it’s just as important to work with the body and its natural cleansing abilities. To cleanse gently so as not to cause the body excess stress.
In this book you’ll find a natural approach to cleansing that will help you prepare your body prior to pregnancy. Drawing from traditional wisdom you’ll learn what foods are best to avoid during a cleanse, what herbs and treatment are beneficial, and simple strategies that you can implement into your current lifestyle.
Why does “detoxing” have to be so harsh…and confusing?
I tried cleansing years ago and found that I fell off the wagon before I’d barely begun, I could handle a week and then quit! I felt deprived and stressed out instead of rejuvenated. I worked against my body instead of with it. It took me a few years to realize that a gentle approach was what worked for me. Detox products are a huge industry, and they often sell to those who are desperate for health. This is simply because many of us are desperate for health, vitality, and fertility. We’re tired of feeling tired, and we just want some hope that change can be possible. Yet, we have a hard time trusting those who are selling us these products meant to give us back our health. And, granted, that mistrust is warranted many times, as there are plenty of companies and products that are of little to no help. Your story may be similar to mine; it’s been a constant journey to keep my health and fertility on track. Many times, I just wanted someone to give me hope, so I’ve tried many different dietary and detox protocols over the years.
