Are you currently with child or thinking about getting pregnant? Pregnancy can be such a beautiful time in a women’s life. But I’m sure you’re wondering what’s the best methods and how can you safely detox during pregnancy.  When you’re looking to have a baby, or recently found out the good news, you may want to considering doing a detox just to make sure you get rid of any pesky toxins that be lingering around that can harm the precious bundle of joy. It may be something minute like an unhealthy diet or free radicals from environment. Detoxing is a great way to cleanse the body properly from impurities.

With the aim of achieving this goal effectively and gently for you mommies to be, here are 5 strategies to put into consideration. Feel free to use them as your pre-pregnancy or post-pregnancy detox program.

 

WHEATGRASS JUICE

Detoxing with the wheatgrass is a much safer way to detox than the daily green smoothie which comes with the risk of kidney stones as well as painful oxalate buildup in the tissues. You should try mixing it with a fresh ginger juice if the wheatgrass is very strong.

 

FERMENTED BEVERAGES OR FOODS

Before the birth of the Industrial Revolution, the home preservation of fruits as well as vegetables was achieved without the help of refrigerating, freezing or even canning. This traditional method used in the preservation of vegetables, milk, and meat have to do with a process known as the lacto-fermentation. The lactic acid help preserve food by inhibiting putrefying bacteria. A beneficial bacterium produces this organic acid on the surface of animals even our own skins.

The process of lactic-fermentation works perfectly well in the same manner with plant foods, changing cabbage to sauerkraut as well as cucumbers into pickles.

 

CLEANSING BATHS

Constant soaking with Espon salts as well as magnesium flakes will aid in the opening of the elimination channels both through the skin and through the gut in order to get rid of toxins that are not needed in the body. If you make use of salt in place of flakes, endeavor to get magnesium sulfate for human only.

Vinegar Baths are also other means of cleansing the body. Foot bath can work in the absence of a bathtub. Soaking your body in baking soda and sea salt every week for up to 30 minutes can help in detoxifying your body and get rid of accumulated radiation. It is also advisable to do this after exposure to x-rays.

 

GELATIN-RICH BONE BROTHS

The Gelatin is collagen that has been broken down into different components by reacting with water through a process which is called hydrolysis. The collagen is a core component of tendons, bones, cartilages as well as the skin. It is also usually much in homemade stocks. It is very important to learn how to make a bone broth all by yourself at home before you get pregnant.

 

Nutritious Teas

My personal favorite way to detox is by using various teas made of herbs, spices, and flowers. Some great teas to drink would include the following:

  1. Ginger
  2. Lemon
  3. Butterfly Pea Flowers
  4. Green Tea
  5. Chamomile
