Lymphatic Drainage for Fertility
Are you trying to get pregnant? It's time you gave yourself the best possible chance.
If you are trying to get pregnant, you may like to consider LET.
Babies are born with approximately over 280 chemicals in their tiny bodies and that’s before they’ve taken their first breath or had their first sip of breast milk. A series of LET, may assist in clearing out toxins, which can be passed on your unborn child.
Until very recently — just 10 years ago — there was almost no research on how industrial pollution affected pregnant women. It had been assumed that the placenta shielded the cord blood and the developing foetus from most pollutants. The reality, however, is that the umbilical cord carries not only oxygen and nutrients to the foetus, but also industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides.
We are birthing a generation of ‘pre-polluted’ children. Environmental toxicants such as methyl mercury, brominated flame-retardants, perfluorochemicals, dioxin, pesticides, and parabens are regularly detected in the blood and tissue of newborn babies, children and in the breast milk of women of reproductive age (Toms et al, 2008, 2009; Mueller, et al. 2008; Woodruff, Zota & Schwartz, 2011).
Exposure to these toxicants have been directly linked with increasing childhood diseases - intellectual impairments, allergenicity, autism, cancer, neurological and behavioural disorders, congenital malformations, asthma, and preterm birth (Landrigan & Goldman, 2011).
Many of these chemicals are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which interfere with hormonal communication between cells and disrupt our body’s natural hormonal balance. Because hormones affect so many biological processes, including organ development and function, mood, fertility and reproduction, exposure to EDCs can have adverse health affects.
EDCs have been linked to an increased risk of weight gain, obesity and diabetes, as well as, food allergies, infertility, reproductive abnormalities, reproductive system cancer, early puberty and neurological and behavioural disorders, like ADHD.
"We now know that during pregnancy, exposure of the mother to some chemicals, pollutants and foods may impact a developing baby and have long-lasting effects on a child’s health even into adulthood," says Dr. Vik Sachar, a Los Angeles-based, high-risk pregnancy specialist, who adds: "The best defence is to minimize the mother's exposure to toxins during pregnancy."
Other Steps to reduce your (or your baby's) toxin exposure
Eat fresh, whole, unprocessed foods
Choose organic (versus conventional) produce
Buy grass-fed meats and dairy products from pasture-raised animals
Filter your tap water
Swap out commercial brands of personal care products for those that use organic and natural ingredients
Avoid wearing fragrance or using products with artificial fragrance (e.g., scented candles)
Avoid or reduce your exposure to cigarette smoke
Choose or make your own non-toxic household cleaners
