Yesterday, I started the 28 day LOSEIT Tea detox cleanse.
It was recommended to me by my fertility coach. I’ve been working with her 1x a week since the end of October and plan on continuing until our FET.
With this cleanse, you drink one tea in the morning and one in the evening while following a restricted diet – gluten-free, dairy-free, limited sugar, etc.
Day 1 was super easy. Day 2 has been A LOT harder. Post-Halloween, I’m coming down from a fairly good sugar high. Today, I’m experiencing a headache along with gas and diarrhea (TMI? Oh come on now…). I read on the cleanse website that I should reduce the steeping time of the tea to reduce the side effects.
Overall, I have a really strong drive to do this well. I want to have the healthiest body possible going into my FET – especially after having anaesthetic and antibiotics with my tubal rupture. I’d like to eliminate as many toxins as possible in my body to reduce the likelihood of another ectopic. I know there are no guarantees, but I feel better knowing that I’m taking care of my body.
Here’s the rest of my healthy living protocol I plan on following leading up to our FET:
- Prenatal Vitamin
- Omega 3 + DHA
- Vitamin D
- Limited dairy/sugar
- No alcohol (except for a glass of wine or two over the holidays)
- Fertility yoga 4-5x a week (I do an at home program)
- Get back on my treadmill 2x/week
- Fertility coaching 1x a week
- Reiki 1x month
Hopefully, all of these activities will lead to a healthy mind, body and spirit, and ultimately a successful FET.
I’ll let you know how the cleanse goes and if I would recommended it once I’m done. Wish me luck… This chocolate addict needs it!
