We are surrounded by toxic substances – the air we breathe, food we eat and water we drink all potentially contain chemicals that accumulate in the body over time. In addition, toiletries, laundry products and cleaning chemicals can contribute to creating an overload. The knock on effects can include digestive problems, impaired immunity, hormone imbalances and general lack of vitality.
Just in the same way you would service your car or spring clean your house, it is highly beneficial to give yourself a cleanse and rest your lovely organs that work so hard for you each second of the day. In particular, in preparing your body for a baby, there is no better time to do it.
‘I have always been bemused by the fact that many pregnant women spend longer preparing the nursery for the baby than their bodies’ (Dr Gowri Motha).
I fully believe that this same principle applies to pre-conception care in order to provide the best chance for optimal reproductive health, and therefore conception, and is just as important for the men as the women!
The body detoxes waste through a number of organs –
- bowels (relying on sufficient stomach acids, liver function and dietary fibre)
The purpose of the detox is to support each of these elimination organs and increase their function, utilizing food changes, dietary supplements & herbal medicine. You will be supported through each stage of the process with information handouts, recipes, shopping ideas and handy tips. In addition, you will have regular check-ins to keep you on track, and access to my Facebook page and email to ask questions, talk to other detoxers, and even post pictures and stories if you choose.
