Whenever I prep someone for pregnancy, the first thing I do is pull unhealthy things out of their diet. After the detox, I begin adding healthy things back in.
A gardener always gets the soil as healthy and nourished as he can before planting precious seeds and plants. The healthier the soil , the more healthy and vibrant those seeds and plants will grow. Our bodies are like this as well – the healthier our bodies are before pregnancy, the better the environment is to maintain a healthy pregnancy as well as support a flourishing child.
Something I have all my clients drink pre-pregnancy is my fertility smoothie. Not only does it taste AMAZING but also it does so many awesome things to enrich your body getting it ready for pregnancy. Everyday millions old cells die and millions are new cells are born. The anti-oxidants and greens in this smoothie help feed the new cells that are being birthed. The added supplements are to support fertility. I know that it can be annoying and time consuming to take a ton of vitamins and supplements everyday but what I love about my smoothie is, you throw it all together in a blender and you are good to go.
