Reducing Toxic Load
This is a habit I recommend for all stages of life and especially during the pre-conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding season. It is also an excellent value to carry on while raising your precious little ones. This concept may be a leap for some, but I can assure it is a worthy pursuit.
Where to begin?
Your state of health leading up to conception greatly influences your ability to conceive, sustain pregnancy and develop a healthy baby. That being said, it is never to late to begin making shifts to eliminate toxins from our lives. We live in a world with more toxins than ever before, by default this makes our children the test subjects. I don't know about you, but that does not sit well with me.
If you have not yet conceived, a proper detox is in order and something that should be handled with care. This is something I specialize in and I am happy to guide you and offer support along this journey.
During any stage of life is the perfect time to begin to rid our lives of the everyday poisons that we put in, on and around us on a daily basis. So whether you a planning your pregnancy, at the very beginning or even the 3rd trimester, now is the perfect time. I understand it may be scary to do a total toxic load reduction... as you may know there are toxic ingredients lurking in our everyday products and hiding behind words like "fragrance" and "breaking-up" with certain habits and routines can pose challenges and growing pains. Once you begin to embrace the change and dig into the information, I think you will find yourself deeply inspired to follow through.
1.Reduce Exposure. Toxins are everywhere nowadays, in our air, water, food, products, and materials we encounter on a daily basis. While it’s not feasible to avoid them all, any effort to reduce your exposure is a step in the right direction. Pay attention to what’s lurking in your cosmetics, personal care products, and cleaning supplies – or better yet, make your own! I have great info on this, its fun and affordable! Always choose glass containers instead of plastic, especially when heating your food. Ditch your non-stick cookware and opt for cast iron, ceramic, or stainless steel instead. Quit smoking and limit alcohol intake as best as possible. Invest in a good quality air filter and a diffuser + oils that clean the air and keep plants in the home! I’m merely scratching the surface, but you get the idea.
