Fertility, like any other aspect of your body’s health, can be positively or negatively influenced by lifestyle and diet. Therefore, detoxification is one of the most powerful and important steps potential moms and dads can take when preparing to conceive.
Independently—or integrated into a more specific program that may include acupuncture, reflexology, diet, and supplements—colonic therapy is a safe and natural way to help bring your body into balance, enliven your fertility, and achieve a healthy pregnancy. The toxins you ingest, drink, breathe in, and absorb through your skin settle in your liver, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract. If they aren’t expelled quickly, they can cause problems with conception later.
“I always recommend that both partners go through a detoxification program,” says Toronto naturopath, Rahim Habib. “Different chemicals affect the sperm and egg, and this can have an effect on the next generation. To detoxify, people need to make sure that the bowels and kidneys, and their ability to perspire, are functioning healthily.”1
