A Preconception Cleanse


Consider a cleanse in the preconception period. If you have been trying to get pregnant and have had no success it may be beneficial for you to take a break. Take a break from the stress and frustrations of trying to conceive and take complete stock of your own health.

Examine your nutrition and your exercise programs. Really focus on how you feel and how you can improve. And begin to research how you can cleanse your body. A full body cleanse will allow you to "clean out" your body of toxins and other things that may negatively affect your fertility.

Choosing Your Cleanse

There are several different methods of cleansing your body. The first and most basic way is to fast. Fasting means going without food and drink (except pure water) for a set number of days. During this time your body gets rid of any excess left from your last meals and begins to purge everything else. This is a simple and cost-effective way to cleanse but it is hard to do for any longer than a few days.

There are some variations on the fast, such as: juice fasts where only juices are enjoyed, fruit fasts where only fruits are enjoyed, and vegetable fasts where only veggies are enjoyed. As you research you may find a fast that seems like a good fit for you. Remember to always be very careful when fasting and be aware of what your body is telling you.

You may also want to look into herbal cleanses. These often go hand in hand with a brief fasting period, but the cleanse itself lasts longer. There are many herbal cleansing products on the market and you should research carefully. A certified herbalist or naturopath may be able to help you find one that truly works.

There are other body cleanses as well. You may have heard of ones involving lemon juice and maple syrup. There are also cleanses with cinnamon, enzymes, and even ionic cleanses. Careful evaluation of any claims a cleanse system makes is important.

Remaining Toxin Free

Once you have chosen and completed your cleanse you should feel better. Many people enjoy greater energy and clarity after they have gone through a cleansing period. Begin this time right by making healthy, natural food choices. You should also gradually build up to a regular exercise program.

If you have pets be sure to make sure they are clean and free of toxins and parasites as well. Once you've completed your cleanse you want to maintain a clean body. Use natural products to clean your home to avoid toxins, and be sure you clean regularly.

A clean, toxin free body is much more open to conception. You'll have more energy and a good start for your future baby. If your partner also chooses to do a cleanse he will be more able to produce strong, healthy sperm. The result will be greater fertility for both of you, and your body will be healthy and ready for your baby.
