Is it important to detox before conception? Are prenatal vitamins helpful? What foods should we include in our diet, pre-conception, and when pregnant and nursing? What role does birth control play in our fertility?
In today’s episode, Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, answers all of the above and then some as we discuss Principle #11 of the Wise Traditions diet: how men and women can plan and prepare for conception with nutrient-dense foods. She tells how all traditional cultures had special diets and “sacred foods” for men and women wanting to get pregnant, and how today’s recommendations for women who want children are often misguided. Sally sets the record straight for what foods youreallyneed to eat to have a healthy pregnancy, and, in turn, healthy, happy children. Her perspective is based on the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, who travelled all around the globe in the 1930s, studying traditional food ways and the diets of the healthiest peoples.
