What Is Fertility Cleansing?

The First Step

Fertility cleansing is one of the best things you can do to prepare your body for pregnancy, and it should be one of your first steps in beginning your fertility journey. Cleansing is not a new fad, it has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years by ancient Japanese medicine, Chinese medicine and even Native American medicine. If you have hormonal imbalances or irregular cycles, a fertility cleanse might be just the thing to kick start your fertility! Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

What Is A Cleanse?

A fertility cleanse is a diet or herbal supplement program that is designed to rid the body of any toxins. There are cleanses that involve eating nothing but whole foods, cleanses that involve drinking only certain liquids, cleanses that involve fasting, and cleanses that involve taking certain herbal supplements. The point of a fertility cleanse is meant to clear out the uterus and the liver in order to aide in conception.

What Are You Cleansing?

There are so many things that we put into our bodies on a daily basis that can really affect our fertility. Some of the main things? Alcohol, tobacco or other drugs, birth control pills, pesticides and other everyday “BPA” products, prescription and over the counter meds, poor diet, consumer skin care and beauty products and more. The point of a fertility cleanse is to get rid of all of these toxins and leave the body as pure as possible.

Hydration Is Key

There are several things to remember when doing a fertility cleanse. The first, and most important thing to remember, is to stay hydrated. The body will need as many fluids as possible to excrete excess hormones and toxins, so staying hydrated is essential to the cleanse working. Try drinking plenty of water, coconut milk, and tea during your cleanse for best results.

No Cleansing During Your Period

Another thing that many women don’t realize about cleansing is that you should take a break from cleansing during your period. Your body has enough work to do during your period, so give yourself a break from your cleanse during this time. Once your period is over, you can resume your cleanse as usual.

What To Avoid/ What To Eat

No matter if you choose a diet cleanse, a herbal tincture cleanse, a herbal infusion cleanse, or a liquid diet cleanse, you should take care to avoid some things during your cleanse. Those things include alcohol and tobacco (obviously), caffeine, sugar, gluten, and even meat. If you are looking for some great foods to help you in your cleanse, try to eat carrots, beets, Brussels sprouts, garlic, lemon, avocado and eggs!

For More Info

For more information on beginning a fertility cleanse, you should make sure to check with your doctor first. Your doctor can help you determine whether or not a cleanse is safe fro you and what you should do to get started! Good luck on your cleansing journey!
