Uncovering The Underlying Causes Of Infertility
According to the NCBI (National Centre for Biology Information), the increasing toxic load in our environment is a major contributor to fertility challenges. These toxins can disrupt our endocrine system, damage our reproductive systems, & even impact fetal viability. No wonder so many couples are struggling to conceive.
But here’s the good news: your body is designed with an incredible self-healing system that’s always working for your highest good. And did you know that women have a natural internal detox system? By leveraging the true healing powers within our own bodies, we can support our fertility & improve our chances of conceiving. That’s where pre-pregnancy detoxing comes in. By cleansing & purifying our bodies, we can help reduce the toxic load & create a healthier environment for a baby.
The Importance Of A Fertility Cleanse For Women Trying to Conceive
Firstly, what is detoxification really?
From the latin “de” (= removal) + “toxicum” (= poison) detoxing simply is the art of supporting your body naturally heal & eliminate toxins.
In today’s world, we’re constantly exposed to toxins in our water, food, & air. These poisonous chemicals can quickly overburden our systems & lead to health issues like infertility. But what exactly is detoxification, & why is it so important for fertility?
Simply put, detoxing is the process of supporting your body’s natural healing & elimination of toxins. By cleansing & purifying your body, you can help reduce the toxic load & create a healthier environment for a baby.
Some of the most common types of toxins include heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, plastics, synthetic fibers, industrial chemicals, & bacterial endotoxins.
Detoxing isn’t just a trendy diet – it’s very important especially for women who want to conceive.
Later in this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about detoxing for fertility, including my top pregnancy super foods, best tea for fertility, & other natural ways to boost fertility.
So if you’re ready to start your fertility journey & improve your chances of conceiving, read on & discover the magic of detoxing.
Is A Pregnancy Detox Good for Fertility?
If you are looking for natural ways to boost fertility a pregnancy detox is the answer.
To be fertile, a woman needs two key things: high quality eggs & a healthy womb environment. And thirdly for your lover to have healthy sperm! According to expert Dr. Sangiuliano, reproductive cells of poor quality (both sperm & eggs) can increase the risk of miscarriage, childhood leukemia, autism, diabetes, & other health issues.
Here’s the thing: women are born with a limited number of eggs, which decreases with age. In fact, women lose about 1,000 follicles (pre-eggs) every month during menstruation.
That’s why it’s so important to take care of each egg & optimize your chances of pregnancy success.
So, how do you ensure that your eggs are healthy?
The answer is simple: a fertility cleanse & combined with pregnancy super foods. But it’s important to note that this can take time – usually between 2 to 4 months – to reverse the damaging factors.
That’s why it’s important to take a love-based approach to the healing process & not rush it.
Knowing your current state of health can also help clarify your pregnancy detox needs. Let’s take a closer look at these important factors now.
Should You Do A Fertility Cleanse Before Trying to Conceive?
Genetics & lifestyle choices can significantly impact your chances of infertility. If you’re wondering if your body could benefit from a fertility cleanse & pregnancy detox, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I suffer from chronic fatigue?
- Do I experience strong PMS?
- Did I ever take birth control pills?
- Do I struggle with acne breakouts?
- Do I suffer from hormonal imbalances?
- Do I have constipation or diarrhea?
- Do I have under-eye bags or dark circles?
- Have I been on antibiotics or medications for a long period of time?
- Do I experience dark blood, painful cramps, or blood clots during my menses?
- Does my diet include meat & dairy?
If you said yes to any of these questions, your body would likely benefit from a pregnancy detox which would greatly increase your chances of conceiving & having a healthy pregnancy.
Though it is normalised to have period pain, the truth is our periods don’t need to be accompanied by PMS, deep pain, acne, clotting, fatigue, etc.
These symptoms are signs that your system could be overloaded with toxins that your body is striving to eliminate… Let’s now discuss what happens during your period & how to appease your symptoms.
The Powers of Your Period for Detoxification
The liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph, colon, & skin have the natural ability to cleanse themselves.
But unlike men, women have an additional, incredibly clever bodily system & detoxification mechanism. Periods function as a strong system to remove toxic chemicals & heavy metals from the body on a monthly basis during the menstruation phase.
However, the more toxic women’s bodies are, the more intense the detox symptoms may be.
But there’s a silver lining: research has shown that women tend to live longer than men, & one reason for this may be our natural ability to detox heavy metals every month through their menses.
For A Safer Pregnancy, Don’t Pass Toxins Onto Your Baby
Many women report that their periods become lighter & less painful after giving birth, as the process of childbirth helps to release some of the heavy metals that may have been causing discomfort.
I cannot count the number of women who have shared this with me. Many women celebrate this, but most do not understand why this happens!
It’s important to know that while our bodies do a great job of eliminating toxins, some of these harmful substances can also be passed on to your unborn baby.
That’s why it’s so important to detoxify your body before conceiving in order to create a safe womb environment for a healthy pregnancy.
The Impact of Toxic Chemicals on Fertility & Pregnancy
During pregnancy, the female body goes through many changes to support the growth & development of the baby.
One of these changes is the mobilization of stored energy, which can release fat-soluble toxins into the body. These toxins can be harmful to the developing fetus.
- Lead for instance, a toxic heavy metal found in the air, soil & water, is known to cause endocrine system disruption, asthma, allergies, impaired brain function, & cancer.
- Bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic found in a plethora of consumer products, can cause additional hormonal alterations affecting the sexual differentiation of the growing fetus.
- Triclosan & triclocarbon are also endocrine disruptors equally harmful that can be found in antibacterial soaps, toothpaste & over 2,000 common consumer products.
These are just a few examples of chemicals that may harm your baby during pregnancy, but in reality there are many, many more…
It is important to be aware of these toxins & take steps to reduce exposure during pregnancy to protect the health of both the mother & baby.
A pregnancy detox is highly recommended before conceiving for the above reasons.
The Dangers Of Toxic Chemicals Passed From Mother to Child
It’s important to detoxify your liver & uterus to remove the heavy metals that can be transferred during pregnancy, childbirth, & breastfeeding.
The potential effects of maternal chemical exposure on fetuses has shown that almost 80% of the chemicals discovered in maternal blood samples were also detected in the umbilical cord blood samples.
This indicates that most toxins pass through the mother’s placenta & enter the fetal environment.
In fact, the research led by the two major laboratories EWG & Commonweal found 287 different industrial chemicals & pollutants in the umbilical cord blood — among which 180 are known to cause cancer & 217 proved to be toxic to the brain & the nervous system.
Today, babies are born pre-polluted, with nearly 300 different chemicals in their system…!
Environmental concerns are constantly on the rise. It is time to ask ourselves, how long are we going to tolerate this for our children? The consequences are already alarming.
In the past decade, health conditions affecting kids have boomed from allergies, asthma, eczema to autoimmune diseases & autism. How bad is it supposed to get before we take action?
Make a Positive Difference in the World
With the decisions we make for our own health & the health of our families, we have the ability to influence the future.
Detoxing is one method we can have a positive impact. Through detoxing, we can lessen the toxic load on our bodies & create a better world for the ffuture generations.
I’ve been studying the art of detox for the past 15 years & have tried a range of different approaches, from keto & raw vegan to fruitarian & juice fasting. I’ve learned that the female body is unique & requires a specific approach to detoxing.
In fact, most of the information out there about detoxing is based on studies conducted on men, not women.
If you’re interested in learning more about detoxing in a feminine way, with ease, joy, & love, I’m here to support & guide you on your journey. Together, we can create a healthier future for ourselves & the next generation.
Do You Wonder “Is Detox Before Pregnancy Safe”?
A fertility cleanse & pregnancy detox is not only good for the chances of conception, but it increases the chances of a healthy baby from birth onto the rest of their lives & their children’s lives too.
Most women change their diet when they get pregnant, but most women carry such a toxic load that these changes need to come before conception.
Many fertility issues can be solved through a pregnancy detox.
There is a direct link between hormonal health & digestive problems. I go into more depth about this in my article here. You can read this if you’re unsure whether you might have hormonal imbalances.
Doing a detox before becoming pregnant would be a wonderful gift for both you & your future child.
I will now share more about when to do a pregnancy detox, pregnancy super foods & herbs for fertility. Let’s start with a crucial determinant for your success ー the best timing to detox!
When Is The Best Time To Do A Fertility Cleanse?
I recommend detoxing at least 3 months prior to conception & ideally 6 to 12 months beforehand. Yes, that’s quite early!
The truth is that cleansing your body does not happen overnight.
The detox itself commonly takes about 3 months & it’s best to allow another 3 months post pregnancy detox to ensure the toxins are eliminated & your body is fully replenished.
Your current state of health will also play a key role in determining the best detox & duration for you.
Another core important step of when to do a fertility cleanse is based on your hormonal cycle. There are many steps to consider to ensure you do not damage your fertility, but improve it.
If you feel the call to give it a try now, I can guide you through the entire detox process in the safest way with a fully personalised plan.
My natural doctor told me I am one of the most fertile women he has seen for a woman of my age (now 36.) I share this as I have been detoxing for more than a decade & eating/living in a way to balance my hormones consistently for the past 3 years; the results are clear!

Is Detox Safe During Pregnancy?
Detox timing can have a significant impact on your baby’s health.
Many women ask me “Can I safely detox while pregnant or breastfeeding?” The truth is no.
You can of course eat well, but to deeply detox during pregnancy can hurt your baby in the long run.
Here’s why: As you now know, the placenta doesn’t protect the baby from its mother’s toxins. So it is therefore essential to ensure your body is clean to provide the best environment for the fetus to grow healthy & strong.
Now think about this: When we detox, what happens? Stored toxins are released in the bloodstream to be flushed out of the body through your poop, urine, or sweat. It is when your blood is at its most toxic level. And it is through blood connection that the mom & baby exchange nutrients in the placenta.
Yes, you got it. Detox while pregnant is actually the last thing you want to do.
Many doctors even inform pregnant women who smoke or use drugs that stopping could result in losing the baby due to the stress & detox of coming off.
“But if I don’t detox now, I’ll pass my current toxins on to my child, won’t I?”
Indeed. That’s why detoxes are usually advised to be done before pregnancy. But please do not worry if you are already pregnant. Having this awareness means you can support your child at a young age to eat well & receive high quality nourishment through your breast milk.
I Am Already Pregnant – “What do I do”?
Besides detox, there are still plenty of life-changing shifts you can make to support yourself & your baby’s health in a gentle yet powerful way.
I suggest you primarily focus on staying active & happy (reducing stress) while eating a healthy diet & staying hydrated!
It may sound simple, but nowadays many of us overlook these fundamental basics. Take your pregnancy as an opportunity to explore new areas of self-care & make your overall well-being a priority.
Once you have stopped breastfeeding then you can explore doing a detox. When you are ready, I am here to help.
