And be sure to check out a recent Podcast from the Weston A. Price Foundation, where Sally Fallon Morell talks about “How to Have the Healthiest Babies.” At least take a look at the page to see the list of highlights. The podcast is less than 30 half an hour and worth every minute of your time.
Something that I did not have space for in my flyer, but I feel is super import are a Doula and Midwife. They are not the same thing, and I highly recommend that you look for both when planning to have a baby.
PREPARING FOR A BABY
|TOXINS?! One common problem in our modern world is the huge increase in heavy metal toxicity, and we know that this disrupts hormones, among other things. A pregnant mother will detox into her baby – especially her first born! So you want your toxic load to be as small as possible before you conceive. The solution for the heavy metals is this zeolite product, know as PBX. I recommend that all my clients start with that, or even better, this combination of PBX and 44 superfoods. That Super Green Juice powder helps build up nutrient stores too. There is a lot of good information on the product pages. (If you decide to purchase these, contact me for a discount coupon!)||
THINKING of having a baby? Here are some tips to ease the journey and maximize health for both mother and baby, from preconception to childbirth.
What you find in this pamphlet you will likely also find in the words of your elders: That nature provides us with the very best food.
Wise traditions, passed down through our ancestors, are built on hundreds, if not thousands of years of experience and success.
The Weston A. Price Foundation is one of the best places to learn about the science behind such wisdom.
THE SIMPLE ANSWER:
- Eat real food.
- Meat. Fish. Eggs. Dairy. Plants.
- Healthy fats & oils with every meal.
- Detox your body.
- Fermented Foods? Yes! Lots. Enjoy kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, pickles kombucha, etc.
- Herbs & Spices? Yes & No. Avoid them during the 1st trimester; go easy on the spices after that. Consult an expert about medicinal herbs.
- Salt? Yes! Natural unrefined salts, such as Himalayan pink salt, Celtic, sea salt, etc.
- Grains? Only if soaked, sprouted, and/or fermented, such as sourdough bread.
- Supplementing with Cell Salts? Yes
Good Nutrition affects fertility!
EAT REAL FOOD. EAT A LOT OF IT.
“Special preconception and pregnancy diets emphasizing foods dense in particular nutrients were universal among the traditional groups that W eston Price studied.” – Chris Masterjohn, PhD.
Space births three years apart to be sure that the mother’s body has recovered.
SOUPS AND STEWS MAKE IT EASY:
Soups and stews are a great way to consume several of the key food groups at once. Start with your own homemade bone broth and add meat or fish with fresh vegetables. Go easy on the seasonings and use only all natural ingredients. Protein, fiber, essential fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, iron, folic acid, and more, can all be provided by a healthy homemade soup.
SNACKS & SUPPLEMENTS:
Consume only natural fresh foods that come from truly organic sources. There are such food sources that can be taken in a supplemental way, such as Cod Liver Oil (especially FCLO). And then there are dried fish, such as anchovies, sardines, whitebait, and others, that make great snacks and are loaded with nutrition. Real cheese comes in endless varieties that taste great straight.
FATS & OILS. WITH EVERYTHING!
Butter, ghee, lard, tallow, coconut oil, olive oil, and a few other good oils should be consumed daily. 4 tablespoons of Butter or ghee every day if you can. Add to that 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil.. Try to also have some lard every day. Add other healthy fats every chance you can. Work them into the preparation of all your meals and snacks. It’s easier than you think.
I will mention again here that Doulas and Midwives are something else that you should seek. A couple of articles to get you started on that path:
