The health tips post I did awhile back was fun and I think you liked it too (am I being too bold to say that?). Now that I’m pregnant, and have been for awhile, I’ve modified a few things in my own diet to grow a healthy baby and all that. Since I like to share good health information because really, at the end of the day if you don’t have your health than what do you have, here goes my pregnancy health tips. And, I’ll have you know, they’ve got the stamp of approval from my enema-loving, split-doing, yoga-practicing Mom. And that’s something.
I’d also like to say that every single winter without fail I usually get two nasty colds. Nothing more, nothing less. Since being pregnant through the winter, I was sure I’d get that or more (as you know, your immune system is not what it normally is so you’re more susceptible to things). Well, I think I have to attribute it to what I’m doing below, but I have not gotten one cold or even felt one coming on. Since I’ve written this, I most likely will. Starting tomorrow.
comes from a natural grocer nearby, though Whole Foods has it too. Probiotics are a good bacteria that should live in your intestines all the time. Because of how much antibiotics our culture takes, often times, we don’t have all the good bacteria (antibiotics kill all of it — good or bad). This is why a lot of people get yeast infections or urinary tract infections after taking a round of antibiotics. You need to replenish your system of the good stuff. But, in our toxic world, we should all be doing this all the time. They’ve (again, THEY!) also done studies that probiotics have been found to prevent food allergies in kids! Yee-haw! So, get a head start and take it before, while, and after pregnancy. And pleeeease don’t give me hate comments if you didn’t take probiotics and your child has a food allergy. Let me be clear: I AM NOT SAYING IT IS YOUR FAULT. I just like talking about this stuff and have found, thus far, that it works for me. Fair enough?
