Cleansing or detox is a process of gently removing toxins from your body to improve your overall health, and for those of us on the fertility path, to get our bodies ready for conception. A cleanse will clean our entire body inside and out but focuses primarily on the liver, and for fertility, the uterus
So Many don’t know the benefits of Fertility Cleanse/Detox. I am sure you have heard of cleansing from one place to another, maybe it was about cleansing your colon or detoxifying your liver. While it may seem like a new fad, cleansing has been around for thousands of years,
used by the Japanese, Egyptians and Native Americans.
Cleansing has been a natural way to keep the body healthy and maybe one of the most beneficial things to do before you get pregnant. I recommend it as the 1st step to Fertility and Hormonal Imbalance.
Have you Detox lately?
The time, while you are preparing for conception, is one of the most important times to create a healthy body in preparation for pregnancy.
It is also the best time to do a Fertility Cleanse. Fertility cleansing is a way to support the body in preparation for conception by cleansing the uterus and Liver. A Fertility Cleanse encourages the liver to cleanse the body of toxins and excess hormones. It also supports the uterus to cleanse itself of old stagnant blood and increases circulation to the uterus while tonifying the uterine tissues.
Note: Do not cleanse during pregnancy or breastfeeding. You do not want to expose your baby to your body’s toxins as they circulate in your blood on the way out.
Why Fertility Cleanse?
Over the years the body can accumulate toxins from chemicals in the air, earth, water and from substances we consume daily or slather on our skin (synthetic skincare products and cosmetics). Many of these toxins get stored in the fat tissues of the body and can be released quicker through cleansing. Some of these toxins may be left from:
- Hormonal Birth Control
- Cigarette Smoke
- Excess Hormones
- Poor Diet
Ideally, we would like our bodies to be as healthy as possible during pregnancy, through cleansing we are able to support the body in its natural ability to rid itself of these substances.
While cleansing is beneficial, not just any cleanse is going to be beneficial for Fertility.
A Fertility Cleanse is specific to the reproductive system and assists the body in eliminating the additional burden of substances not good for Fertility. A Fertility Cleanse focuses on three major areas that can help the body to prepare for conception:
- Liver Health
- Uterine Health
- Increasing Circulation to the uterus.
Who should Detox?
Detox is for everyone. Because we all accumulate toxins in one way or the other. From the air, water, earth, what we consume and apply on our skin.
