I treat a lot of fertility at the RISE clinic, along with pregnancy, post-natal, infant and children’s health as well as the work I did on my own fertility, pregnancy, infant and children’s health. What I am stumped by (and I myself was in this category) that when women and men decided to embark on the journey of procreation they all of sudden take note of their health and begin to put themselves first, though it’s not really for you is it? No it is for the wellness another.
We love to help anyone but ourselves
Let’s workshop this. Most of us are brought up to put others before ourselves, it is gracious, helpful, nurturing, supportive, gratifying. But……after you have provided all of this magnanimous support to others, your health, mind and body tanks are empty. Why not first be gracious, helpful, nurturing and supportive to yourself. Fill your tank and keep you engine chugging to provide the best support to others, with out draining yourself.
So don’t jump on the fertility fad hamster wheel of months to years of getting your body back in a healthy balanced state just so you can procreate. Below is loose guide to general health for life, so when it comes time to produce your little miracle things can just happen.
1.Learn to take down time – reading, meditating, quiet time a time to nurture yourself, you might just like time alone or to go and have a group healing, or a wellness session that leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
2.Move – every part of your body needs nourishment to help the flow of nourishment movement is need, fast or slow, walk, dance, skip or jog, bike ride or sprint it is all helpful.
3.Detox – Feb fast, dry July, sober October, if you are already detoxing from alcohol for a month why don’t you cleanse and detox your digestion through food as well. Try lemon in hot water in the morning, adding in turmeric to meals (use it with black pepper to activate the properties in turmeric), eating more greens or adding in a green smoothy for an alkaline digestion, supplementing with a B vitamin or a small handful of GoJi berries each day and have a break from dairy, coffee and gluten.
4.Get familiar with Fermented foods or probiotics – establishing health in your digestion can eliminate many health concerns not just in your digestion but throughout your entire body and can assist with a sharper mind and better sleep.
5.Rehydrate – drinking water and coconut water refreshes, flushes and revitalises your body, which is only positive.
Love and nurture yourself first
So you don’t have to spend a santa sac on fertility treatments (save it for the school fee’s), or spend countless late nights reading up on fertility Fads, start you self care now and make it your thing, not just for a moment or for this year, but always and for forever.
If you would like to know more about maintaining your health so you can be ready for anything that comes your way, feel full of energy and balanced give me a call at the clinic.
