Preparing Your Body for Pregnancy: 5 Foods You Should Start Eating Before Getting Pregnant by 30Seconds Health
The second a woman decides to try for a baby should be the moment she improves and adjusts her diet. A woman’s body will go through a lot of changes and some foods can support the overall health of the body and energy balance. Dr. Michael Joseph Levry, a Spiritual Master with a Ph.D. in Metaphysical Science and founder of Naam Yoga, shares some of his tips from his newest book, “The Ultimate Secrets of Intimacy and Creation.”
- Wheatberries: “Wheatberries strengthen the gums and teeth, prevent lower back pain and maintain the skin and the intestinal tract health,”explains Dr. Levry. Wheatberries also contain B group vitamins and minerals. “The best way to prepare wheatberries is to soak them in water overnight until soft and puffy.” Add some milk of your choice and honey and voila!
- Chlorophyll: Chlorophyll isn’t responsible for just making leaves green. If you’ve ever been pregnant, you know that constipation is one of the “joys” that comes with pregnancy. “Chlorophyll prevents constipation by keeping waste pockets from developing in the intestinal tract. Chlrophyll is also rich in vitamins A, C, K and E and it supports healthy skin and vision.” You may choose to add liquid chlorophyll to salad dressing or smoothies.
- Pomegranates: If you have patience to seed the pomegranates, you should definitely include in your pre-pregnancy diet. “Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C and one pomegranate provides nearly 40 percent of the daily recommended requirement.” Pomegranate juice has more antioxidants than most other juices, which will help cleanse and prepare your body.
- Peaches: Not only peaches are extremely delicious and sweet, they are also a great source of vitamin A. “Vitamin A promotes healthy vision and is believed to help in the prevention of certain types of cancer. During the pregnancy, a women’s blood pressure may go up, and potassium which is found in peaches help regulate that.”
- Almonds: Almond milk has become one of trendiest cow’s milk alternatives. However, a lot of people are not aware of its actual benefits. “Studies now show that 90 percent of the fat in almonds is unsaturated fat, which can help to lower blood cholesterol levels when eaten regularly.” So if you find yourself indulging in buttery croissants and sweet treats during the pregnancy, you might want to include almond milk into your diet.
