Devoting effort towards perfecting your own body before you think of giving birth to a new life is paramount. Maintaining a healthy body, free of toxins
allows you to play an active role in conceiving healthy. Helping the body towards daily detox and cleansing will not only be of great benefit to you but also to the baby that you will harbour within the womb for a good 9 months. A clean system will facilitate your journey even after childbirth in ways you can't even imagine as of now.
A healthy body is regarded as the one which is able to cope with the constant barrage of toxins been sprayed on us as part of the modern living and contemporary lifestyle.
Our body is a fragile system which can be overwhelmed by toxic invasion if not cared for properly and not only this, there is also a strong likelihood of the toxins getting transferred to the young one even as it is inside you.
Therefore, giving your body a little daily detox support is always a good idea. This will not only prepare you for sustaining a healthy lifestyle but help you fully reap the benefits of herbs, nutritional supplements or natural therapies you may consume to gear up for pregnancy.
When we say detox these things might strike your mind instantly - eating a strict diet, fasting, juice-only cleansing, or intense gastrointestinal cleanses that may keep you stuck at home and close to a bathroom all day long.
However, in this blog we will not take you to these extreme lengths. The body in itself is capable of detoxifying itself, but owing to conventional lifestyle, the quantitative exposure to toxins can add up over time. These 10 tips will help you get the body's detoxifiers running naturally
1. Lemons, so that Life doesn't Give you any Lemons
A home remedy to trigger gentle liver cleansing is to add the juice of ½ of a lemon to 1/4th of water and drink this first thing in the morning. Why we took liver first is because of the fact that body's detoxification efforts are spearheaded by the liver, which some call as the “master detoxifier” of the body as it is vital to hormonal balance. In addition, lemons are a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants; nutrients shown to play a key role in reproductive health as well as purification.
Some even term the scent of the lemon to elevate the human mood. Here, we would also advise you to keep hydrated all through the day. Water is pivotal to complete body health, liver health, healthy release of cervical mucous, boosting metabolism\ and even for healthy, blemish-free skin.
2. Detoxifying that what we Eat
Our body is predisposed to digest and absorb fresh, whole foods.
So when we give the body these foods, it carries out their nutrient utilization triggering the natural detoxification process with ease. It is not a coincidence then, that, the food regimen which nutritionists term as Fertility diet comprises focusing on eating fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, grains, nuts and seeds, healthy fats, and moderate amounts of organic grass-fed meat, poultry, wild-caught fish, eggs and raw or organic dairy products.
3. Mobility for Fertility
it is no secret by now that exercise does your whole body health wonders. Moderate to good exercise done daily boosts balancing of hormonal secretions and removal of toxins from the body by promoting circulation and quantity of fresh oxygen we breath in, strengthening the muscles, reducing stress and tension and stimulating digestion. Not necessary that you have to pump iron to be healthy and exercise can be light and not be really strenuous – such as a brisk walk, a leisurely jog, hiking in nature, fertility yoga, or a dance class.
4. Don't brush off the Brushing
The skin is the protective layer engulfing all our organ systems and is a vital component of detoxification process.The website MindBodyGreen writes, “Your skin, the largest organ in the human body, is an organ of elimination. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin.” Through dry brushing, our endeavour remains to stimulate the lymphatic system. The latter is responsible for removal of toxins and waste from the body.
You can find more about dr brushing on this website but we will give you a brief overview.
Dry brushing is easy! Here’s how:
Undress, yes, you need to be naked, and stand in the shower. With your natural bristled body brush, start at your toes and brush up your legs with long, light sweeping motions. Brush up to your knees and then from knees to hips, up the hips, up over the abdomen toward your heart. Do the same from your fingertips toward your elbows, then from your elbows to shoulders toward your heart, and from the top of the head in short sweeping motions over the face toward the heart. Be sure to be gentle and apply only light pressure when sweeping over your face. Cover as much of the surface of your body as you can, brushing toward your heart and making sure to be kind to sensitive areas like the face, breasts and undersides of the arms. The skin should become less sensitive as you continue this practice.

6. Herbs to your detox rescue
Herbs, the moderate ones provide daily support for the body’s natural detoxification processes.
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) seed has the proven ability to repair, regenerate and gently detoxify the liver. We like to utilize this herb as a liquid extract.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) leaf, root and rhizome, all have a well-established affinity for the liver and kidneys and are known to stimulate digestion. Dandelion is great as a daily infusion or liquid extract.
Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) being fiber rich, helps to eliminate toxins via the intestines by promoting healthy bowel movements. Grind up two tablespoons of fresh flaxseeds and add them to your food, daily.
7. Wonders of Castor Oil Therapy
Another good way to heal the fertility tissues and prepare it pregnancy is Castor oil (Ricinus communis) therapy. Besides detox, Castor oil improve reproductive health by raising blood and oxygen supply to the reproductive organs which in turn supports egg, ovarian, fallopian tube and uterine health. They are also known to enhance immune system function, reduce inflammation and pain and promote stress reduction.
8. Tone up the core with Fertility Massage
Here's a video tutorial of Fertility Massage.
Fertility Massage is comprised by a series of massage techniques used to increase circulation to the uterus and ovaries, realign a tilted uterus, break-up adhesions, and relax the hip muscles and reproductive organs. Proper alignment/positioning of our internal organs can release physical and energetic blockages in the reproductive organs, increase circulation, and in doing so help them to function at their best.
9. Wash your way to Detoxification
Detox baths with Epsom Salts (magnesium sulfate) offer amazing benefits ranging from regulating the activity of hundreds of enzymes in the body, and reducing inflammation, to supporting muscle and nerve function, improving the absorption of nutrients within the body and supporting the body’s natural ability to remove toxins. Taking Epsom salt to a medicinal herb bath recipe can help to fade out stress, clear energy and confer a wide range of fertility health benefits depending on the herbs and essential oils added to them. Hot baths also induce sweat, another way the body naturally removes toxins.
10. Detoxifying the Mind
The universe of thoughts unfolding in the mind every day, every moment are likened to sighting of the starts on a new moon day. The sky is vast and everywhere you look you do see light but you can't know where the light is coming from and how many stars are there. Likewise, thoughts can be overbearing to say the least and may be largely focused on what has gone or is going wrong… the negative. If you feel this way, it’s time to detoxify your mind!
Calming the mind is like putting the waves in the ocean to rest. You may ask How you will do it when it such a tall order? The easy way out is contemplation and meditation. There are mindfulness meditations readily available on the internet but if you don't find any, feel free to connect with us. We have a series of free programmes to get you going.
Meditating will help you through times of intense emotion and stress while on your fertility journey. In order to be mentally and emotionally open to receiving a new life, invite new life in by focusing on what you want to have come into your life – a healthy pregnancy and baby. Learn to meditate, and to create and use positive affirmations in order to reduce stress and create a positive fertility mindset. Here are some resources to help you get started:
To conclude, you body is an amazing system which is self sustaining and capable of a fairly constant influx of potentially harmful toxins. You just need to lend a helping hand in doing so, because it is powerful but not omnipotent. By way of daily detox I wish and pray that you receive good fertility nutrition, sound sleep, enhanced energy levels and changes in reproductive health, mood and stress levels.
