Healthy Diet Before Getting Pregnant

Posted on

Nuts and seeds are good source of plant protein, but do not forget to soak them in salty water. Soaking will minimize or eliminate nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances found in nuts, grains and seeds. Seeds should be soaked for 8-12 hours, nuts for 12-24 hours. After soaking, rinse and drain them.

Have 2-3 servings of low-mercury levels fish per week. These are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which boost fertility and heart health. Mercury is toxic to the fetus and stays in a woman's bloodstream for over a year. Fish that's high in mercury includes shark, white tuna, swordfish and marlin. Fish that contain low levels of mercury include salmon, sardines, flounder, trout and haddock.

Drinking water containing chlorine and fluoride poses risk to health. Drink a lot of clean, filtered water or spring water instead. Herbal and fruit teas are fine too.

Start juicing! Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are a good way to get your vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and proteins to stay healthy and vorious.

Do not drink alcohol. Even two units of alcohol per week can increase your levels of the sex hormone prolactin, affecting your hormonal balance.

I believe healthy, natural diet is the best help for getting pregnant.
