The development of the fetus in a woman’s womb is one of the wonders of nature.
However, when you are concerned about your physical and emotional health, you give the fetus a good foundation to develop from.
There is usually an awareness of the importance of pregnancy months, but the pre-pregnancy period does not get enough attention.
If you are planning a pregnancy, it is recommended to start about three months before cleansing and nourishing the body.
Preparing your body for pregnancy is important for the development of a healthy fetus and for preventing unpleasant symptoms during pregnancy.
A clean start for your body
Preparing for pregnancy is a great opportunity to clean the body of the toxins accumulated over the years, in order to give a fresh and clean start to the fetus.
The cleaning process should be adapted to the woman’s physical condition, so it is recommended to do it with the professional supervision of a naturopathic woman.
The principle is to improve nutrition and remove from the menu non-quality foods: white flour products, excess sugar, and salt saturated fats, processed products containing food colors and preservatives.
Caffeinated products will also be reduced as much as possible from the menu: coffee, black tea, cola, chocolate and more. It is important to note that during the cleaning process, nutrition is based on plant foods. It is also recommended to consume as much organic food as possible to avoid harmful spraying.
In addition, it is time to change old habits that do not support your health: If you smoke or drink a lot of alcohol, this is the moment to stop and let the body recover from it.
Take into account that the body takes time to cleanse the cigarette materials and restore the liver from the damage caused by the alcohol.
In case you are taking birth control pills, this should be stopped during pregnancy since it will take some time for the body to clear the hormones.
Various herbs can support the process of cleansing the body of toxins. The recommended plants are: nettle, dandelion, glutinous zebra, turmeric and thistle.
Feed your body
When a fetus begins to form within you, it will use its own resources in your blood. Therefore, it is important to fill these reservoirs, while you will be pregnant, by maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. This diet should include the following food groups:
- Fruits and vegetables: Recommended from a variety of colors and organic sources.
Whole grains: Most of the nutritional value (protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber) is found in the cereal shell, which is removed in whole grains (such as white rice, white flour). Therefore it is important to consume whole grains – whole rice, whole wheat, quinoa, oats, buckwheat and more.
– Pulses: chickpeas, lentils, beans, fire, peas, soy and more. When you combine whole grains and whole grains, you can get a full protein. For example pita with hummus or mujadara (rice with lentils). The best way to eat legumes is in the form of sprouts – the process of sprouting makes them easier to digest and improves their nutritional value.
- Seeds and nuts: almonds, walnuts and Brazil, pumpkin seeds and buns, whole sesame seeds (tahini), ground flax seed (contain omega 3). This group is a good source of vegetable fat, which is healthier than saturated fat. To preserve the nutritive value, the seeds and nuts should not be roasted.
In addition to ensuring a balanced menu, it is recommended to take supplements both during pregnancy and during preparation. There are multivitamins on the market for pregnant women, and if you are healthy it should suffice. It is important to have blood tests to determine your condition and, if necessary, to supplement the deficiencies with supplements. Particular attention should be paid to the level of iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid.
Also, it is recommended to consume magnesium that is very essential for the development of cells of the fetus and the function of your cells, is one of the minerals missing in the body during pregnancy. You can use it in capsules or go to the beach once a week and dip your feet, but you should keep it balanced, especially if you have cramps in the legs at the beginning of pregnancy.
Pregnancy is important to start with a normal weight – not overweight or underweight. Excess weight increases the risk of complications during pregnancy, such as diabetes or preeclampsia, while underweight is often associated with a lack of essential nutrients for normal fetal development.
Know Your Body – When you plan to get pregnant, it’s time to deepen your understanding of your body. For example, can you identify your ovulation date?
Exercise – As part of the preparation process for pregnancy, it is recommended to exercise according to your choice: yoga, swimming, cycling, nature walks and more.
To nourish the soul – in addition to the physical preparation, one must also consider the emotional and emotional aspects. Try to take stress, anger and anger out of your life and give more space to things that make you happy, happy, and relaxed.
The preparation process includes cleansing and cleansing the body and improving the nutrition so that it will provide you with everything necessary for the development of the fetus.
This is the time to increase awareness of what goes into your body – now you have a double responsibility to keep your health in.
