Detoxing While Pregnant! – An Important Question!

Generally, body detoxification, while you are pregnant, is not recommended and most doctors will even advise against it. Pregnant women are in a natural cycle of detoxing and do not need to attempt or perform any type of detoxing regime or program.

However, you are allowed gentle herbs if you would like to add more nutrients to your daily intake. Most herbal teas (which is known as tisanes in the French Language )are safe but always consult a physician before adding anything new to your diet.

Trying to detoxify your body while pregnant can create serious and possibly fatal risks for your baby. In the process of detoxification, your body will release toxins from your body through any of the elimination channels of your body. For a woman, the uterus is one of those 6 channels.

You can see why this could potentially be fatal to your fetus. There are herbs normally used to detox your body that can stimulate the uterus and cause it to expel toxins. If this is done while the woman is pregnant it could cause serious harm to the growing baby. There are also herbs that can cause uterine contractions and will most likely cause the body to induce spontaneous abortion.

However, there are simple ways that pregnant women can get the health benefits of detoxing without any herbal or chemical program. The most common and healthiest way is to eat plenty of raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and to drink plenty of water.
