Generally, body detoxification, while you are expecting a baby, is not recommended and most doctors will advise against it. Would-be mothers 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 risks and may be fatal for the baby. In the process of detoxification, the body releases toxins from your body through one channel deletion of your body. For a woman, the uterus is one of the 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.
