Detox To Help Conception


Detox To Conceive..

If you're having trouble conceiving your body may need a detox.

The key to fertility is getting the body into its natural optimum balance, which is often thrown askew by junk food and the stress of modern life. Leading fertility experts believe there are three main factors that reduce fertility: stress, over-acidity in the body and hormonal imbalance.

Fluctuating sugar levels can cause havoc with your hormones, and, just as a seed needs the right acid/alkaline balance in the soil, your eggs need the right environment for conception to take place. Stress leaves the body exhausted and unable to properly cleanse itself.

The ideal answer is a detox at a health spa, but not everyone has the time or money to spend on a stay at a health resort. Those who do should consider it as an aid to conception, those who do not should concentrate on:

  • Diet: avoid a diet high in additives, processed food and sugar. To help balance acid/alkaline levels, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, preferably organically grown.
  • Combat stress by every means possible: meditation, deep breathing; boost your self-esteem; and sort out any relationship problems.
  • Get plenty of sleep to help your body recuperate.
  • Exercise: go to a gym, fitness classes, or get an exercise video for home. Exercise will eliminate toxins through sweating, and it will help you to loose weight if that is a problem.
  • Take a holiday, and try to time it so that you ovulate in the last few days of the holiday when you are most relaxed.

The best gardeners take care to keep their soil in top condition to give their seeds the best chance of propagating, do the same with your body!
