Good preparation is half the work, thus, we start with a body cleanse! This is done through a detox in combination with the best nutrients to ensure that your body can properly dispose of stored toxins. A large amount of pesticides, heavy metals, antibiotics, medicine/vaccination residues, and toxins from inhalation of polluted air remains in your liver, uterine lining and your entire body without detoxification.
Detoxing is the perfect way to prepare for a pregnancy. As a result, your future baby grows from the best cells and lives in a “clean house”. An acidic uterus can cause the implantation process to break and stop. Thus, it’s important to keep the diet plan found in the MyPregnancyWish app during the entire process. Every month is a pregnancy opportunity, so make sure you use every month well and this way you’ll benefit fully. It takes about 3 months for your body to be fully prepared, thus do not expect results in the blink of an eye, patience is key!
What will we tackle first?
The intestines are very important for your overall health, as all that goes inside your body passes through your intestines. Hence, why it plays an important role in your overall health. Intestinal bacteria, called intestinal flora, produces many useful substances. For instance, after an antibiotic treatment both good and bad bacteria are destroyed. Antibiotics also come through food, such as animal products and farmed fish. In order to build a good intestinal flora and detox your body of all antibiotics you must use a probiotic cure with as many strains of bacteria as possible and eat fermented foods.
When your intestines allow more substances in your body than what is good for you, it is called an increased intestinal permeability. If it works properly, poisons in food are filtered out by the intestinal mucosa. However, if it doesn’t the absorption of nutrients is thereby disrupted. This also applies to a leaky intestine. The intake of the vitamins and minerals then decreases. A cause of intestinal permeability can be: intestinal infection, parasites in the gut, gluten and lectins in grains, peanuts, and soy.
If you don’t consume fiber-rich foods, the balance of the intestinal flora is disturbed. This can result in an excessive growth of fungi or bacteria, resulting in an infection. To prevent this, it’s necessary to consume fibers in their natural form; all kinds of fruit and vegetables. It’s important to make sure your intestines (again) are healthy, after which you can be sure that your body will absorb vitamins, minerals, and nutrients properly. In order to repair the damage, you can use: L-glutamine and aloe vera gel.
How should you detoxify?
A great way to start is by doing a juice fast for 3 days (or longer) in combination with probiotics and exercise. This way you will lose most of the toxins if done correctly. Exercise plays a major role in removing toxins from your body. Try to exercise for an hour every day; you must do a full body workout! When it comes to juice fasting, the purpose is to only consume liquids; think of smoothies both from vegetables and/or fruit, herbal teas and lots of water. Water in combination with lemon or Celtic sea salt is recommended a few times a day, especially to start your day! It’s also very important to switch to natural care products. Also, if you are cleaning it is highly emphasized that you do not forget to wear cleaning gloves in order to prevent direct contact with cleaning products. And above all, it’s extremely important to lead a stress free life from this point on!
Food products that help get rid of toxins are: organic vegetables and fruits, such as seaweed, radishes, and beets (purifies your blood), and broccoli, brown rice and other fibers. Food products that are good for the detox process and have a direct effect on the intestinal flora are: raw vegetables and products rich in probiotics such as fermented vegetables (including sauerkraut), yogurt and kefir. Both water kefir and milk kefir are packed with probiotics, which also keeps the intestine healthy and supports healthy bowel function. During the detox period, it’s recommended that you visit a sauna/hammam. The heat will induce sweating and thus, toxins will be removed from your body. Drink extra water that day to keep your fluid balance stable. Your body also requires fresh oxygen; you can achieve this by doing deep breathing exercises a few times a day. You can also achieve this by doing a meditation session. Drink one and a half to two liters of water a day and get a massage.
