Take at least three months before conception to get the body ready for pregnancy, fertile and healthy. Create a fertile, nurturing environment inside and out. Cleansing does not mean not eating; it is about eating better.
Five easy ways to start the cleanse.
Step 1 – Prepare for a gentle cleanse. Gradual is the way to go. Diet is a four-letter word we all have trouble with and cleanse creates images of the unknown being violently swept clean. Visualize a gentle spring-cleaning that restores peace, calm and vitality to the body. Sweep the cupboards clean of your house and eliminate the foods you should not be eating.
Step 2 – Upgrade your diet. Get back to basics. Cut out all the chemicals, artificial sweeteners, packaged foods, fast foods, alcohol, pop, sugars, caffeine of coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, and candy and stop smoking. Drink water and eat all your fruits and vegetables. Go shopping for fresh colorful fruits and vegetables. Prepare some to be ready to snack on right away.
Step 3 – Try a gentle cleanse.
Cleanse Option A. Try to keep your diet vegetarian and dairy free until dinner.
Cleanse Option B. Alternate pathway to a gentle pre-pregnancy cleanse routine is to enjoy nutritious smoothies until you have a vegetarian lunch or dinner.
Cleanse Option C. The more challenging and gentle pre-pregnancy cleanse would be to sip on freshly pressed juices and enjoy raw foods until dinner. Dinner would be a vegetarian dinner.
Step 4 – Exercise. A good sweat helps to cleanse. Fertility yoga like; Bend, Breathe, and Conceive is helpful to get your mind and body in the zone. http://www.fairhavenhealth.com/fertility-yoga-dvd.html
Step 5 – Consider a supplement. A prenatal vitamin before you are pregnant gives the body the ability to have a healthy environment with the proper nutrition available for baby right from the beginning.
