Pre Conceptual Care
Preconception care is vitally important and should start at least six months before you try for a baby. Preparation for pregnancy means that both parents can be as healthy as possible when the baby is conceived.
This goes a long way towards safeguarding the health of the unborn child, promoting a trouble-free pregnancy and is particularly important where there has been a history of miscarriage, premature birth, birth defects, or problems with fertility that seem to have no particular cause. The first few weeks of pregnancy are vital ones for the baby’s development and there is plenty of research to indicate that the state of health of parents at the time of conception has far-reaching implications for a child’s future development.
The time while you are preparing for conception is one of the most important times to create a healthy body in preparation for pregnancy. It is also the best time to do a fertility cleanse. Fertility cleansing is a way to support the body in preparation for conception by cleansing the uterus and liver. A fertility cleanse encourages the liver to cleanse the body of toxins and excess hormones. It also supports the uterus to cleanse itself of old stagnant blood and increases circulation to the uterus while tonifying the uterine tissues.
Combining a fertility cleanse with TCM Acupuncture for fertility is an amazingly effective way of optimizing your healthy, your ability to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy.
Note: Do not cleanse during pregnancy or breastfeeding. You do not want to expose your baby to your body’s toxins as they circulate in your blood on the way out.
Why Fertility Cleanse?
The time while you are preparing for conception is one of the most important times to create a healthy body in preparation for pregnancy.
Over the years the body can accumulate toxins from chemicals in the air, earth, water and from substances we consume daily or slather on our skin. Many of these toxins get stored in the fat tissues of the body and can be released quicker through cleansing. Some of these toxins may be left from:
• Toxic build- up
• Birth control and other medications
• Undiagnosed sib-clinical infections (eg Candida)
• Cigarette Smoke
• Pesticides and herbicides
• Excess hormones
• Poor diet
• Alcohol, etc.
Ideally we would like our bodies to be as healthy as possible during pregnancy; through cleansing we are able to support the body in its natural ability to rid itself of these substances.
While cleansing is beneficial, not just any cleanse is going to be beneficial for fertility. A fertility cleanse is specific to the reproductive system and assists the body in eliminating the additional burden of substances not good for fertility.
Fertility cleanses focuses on four major areas that can help the body to prepare for conception.
The Liver is the major organ in Chinese Medicine for the circulation of Chi (energy) and as such is responsible for all cycles including the fertility cycle in women. Any dysfunction of the liver can interfere with the ability to have a normal cycle, and be receptive for implantation of the egg. TCM Acupuncture is also very effective for rebalancing the body especially the endocrine gland system, hence optimizing your body’s ability to conceive
The Liver also helps to filter toxins from the body including excess hormones. If there is an overabundance of oestrogen it is the livers job to remove it from the system. Sometimes, due to poor diet, lifestyle or general health, the liver may need some stimulation and support to get rid of these substances. By doing a specifically tailored fertility detoxification cleanse and also supporting the liver you are helping your body to better cope with our industrial world and the impact it could be having on reproductive health..

You may wonder what your Adrenals have got to do with a healthy pregnancy. They are the glands which respond to stress by producing Adrenaline and Cortisol. Over stimulation of the adrenals will lead to a flooding of the system with these stress hormones. These hormones activate the flight or fight response, changing our physiology to prepare for an emergency. This state is not optimal for conception as you can imagine! The ADRENAL GLANDS RESPOND TO TOXICITY AS IF IT WAS AN EMERGENCY, AND THESE HORMONES FLOOD OUR SYSTEM. A fertility cleanse will safely detoxify these major causes of stress and return your body to a relaxed and receptive vessel for your baby to be conceived in.
It is now known that all chronic disease begins in the gut. LACK OF GOOD GUT BACTERIA CAN LEAD TO LEAKY GUT SYNDROME WHICH ALLOWS TOXINS INT OUR BLOOD STREAM, AND SETS UP A CHRONIC INFLAMMITORY CONDITION IN OUR SYSTEM. This can be one of the causes for lack of egg implantation in the uterus. If our gut is not healthy we are unable to benefit from our nutritional intake, and our system will not be at optimal health. Also some sub-clinical infections start in the gut and can interfere with conception eg Candida. Parasites, SIBO.
The digestive system can also be tonified and balanced using TCM Acupuncture in conjunction with our cleanse.
Uterine health is very important for reproductive health. Every cycle the uterus is supposed to release the lining that was built that month for the embryo to implant. In some cases the uterus is not completely cleansed every cycle, so old stagnant blood remains. As you can imagine, this is not the best environment to house a new embryo.
Through using specific cleansing you can help support your uterine health, increase circulation and help tonify the uterine muscles, all helping to promote a healthy uterine environment.
Increasing circulation to the uterus
In order for the uterus to function at it’s best, it requires proper circulation. With proper circulation the communication loop between the uterus and ovaries with the endocrine system is able to function smoothly. This is necessary for proper hormonal balance and all of the functions dependent on it such as ovulation, menstruation, and hormone production.
TCM Acupuncture is beneficial in helping to increase the circulation to the uterus as well as exercise and massage.

Preparing for pregnancy with fertility cleanse and TCM Acupuncture
What makes this different and more effective?
• Works with the phases of the menstrual cycle
When doing a fertility cleanse we focus on cleansing certain parts of the body during specific phases of the menstrual cycle. For instance the liver phase of the fertility cleanse is done from the first day after your period has ended up until ovulation. We do this because this is a stimulating time of your cycle, perfect for encouraging the liver to work a little harder. The uterine phase of the fertility cleanse should be done from ovulation until the first day of your period. This is more of a nourishing and building stage of the cycle, when uterine herbs can help to support hormonal balance, increase uterine muscle tone and bring circulation right before the period begins.
• Safe detoxification process
When it comes to fertility cleansing we want to do what is most effective and specific. We have found that it is most effective to determine what toxins and sub-clinical infections are present and prescribing appropriately is the most effective way to get great results.
• Gentle on the system yet effective
We have found that when preparing for conception you do not want to do anything really dramatic or potentially harmful so we focus on cleansing in a gentle yet effective way that is supportive or reproductive health. While doing a fertility cleanse you are able to continue going to work and function in your everyday life. We don’t require any dramatic dietary changes, but do suggest you begin to switch to a fertility diet.
There are no overly strong cleansing reactions while on the fertility cleanse except for some possible minor moodiness due to the liver cleansing itself. When toxins and hormones are being released this can sometimes make one cranky, similar to PMS. This is good and can be helped by drinking more water.
• Supportive of Fertility and Reproduction
Cleansing for fertility is very supportive and encouraging for fertility and the reproductive system. While there are many great cleanses out there, focusing on doing a cleanse specific for fertility is going to be the safest, gentle and most supportive while you are preparing for pregnancy.
• Specific supplements for building a healthy reproductive system and optimizing healthy.
