Clever Diet + Wise Acupuncture
Why is it important to become thin before pregnancy?
Birth spacing is an extremely important stage. You are doing the groundwork of physical and even mental health of the future baby.
Adipose tissue, when it growth, engages over 30% of a body weight and passes itself into hormone-active endocrine organ. Once a woman piles on the weight, she often gets problems with the reproductive system – from anovulatory cycle (lack of ovulation) and infertility on out to the dysfuntctional uterine bleedings and the hormone-dependent tumors.
All these symptoms are despite the fact that the ovaries are working rhythmically and there is no any hormonal disruptions. The problem is the excess weight. Figuratively speaking, in order to make the target organs: uterus and mammary gland to “hear” their hormones aright there should be a strictly determined amount of fat in a woman’s body.
Is there any use limiting your diet before impregnation?
It is definitely necessary to limit consumption of coffee and alcohol. In addition, it is necessary to give up cigarettes.
At the same time, the dietary principles have to be the same as usual. Be sure that the consumed fats, proteins and carbohydrates are correlated. A woman has to eat 200 – 300 grams of the protein products and 600 grams of the carbohydrates a day. It is desirable that fruits and vegetables make up the major part of them – they contain necessary for the body dietary fibre. The other carbohydrates may be durum wheat, boltings, groats. A sufficient amount of fat per day for a woman, who is planning to get pregnant, is 2-3 teaspoons.
It is well known that folic acid (vitamin B9) is essential for a healthy baby. It is found in the green leafy vegetables and legumes: cabbage, broccoli, spinach, Brussels sprouts, green, green beans, lentils.
The folic acid is destroyed while heating. However, the folic acid lasts longer in such foods as meat and milk products. To avoid the folic acid’s loss during cooking, it is better to eat fresh products or to steam.
Is there any easy way to get weight down before impregnation?
Yes it is. The latest researches in the field of acupuncture have proven that long-term stimulation of the specific acupuncture points on the external ear, which are responsible for the metabolism and feeding behavior, keynote the body to consume such amount of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, which it need for the healthy performance (no more, no less).
In addition, the acupuncture activates the body’s processes, which diffuse fats. In addition, the inward parts of the body performance is normalized that has a beneficial effect on the ability to conceive a healthy baby.
