Q: Is meat ok to eat while on the Fertility Cleanse?
A: One thing that is unique about the Fertility Cleanse is that I created it to be a gentle cleanse that could be easily adapted to your lifestyle. The dietary suggestions while on the cleanse are not typically dramatic as many cleanses are. The focus of the Fertility Cleanse is to help your liver and uterus cleanse themselves and prepare the body for conception. This is a time of building nourishment and a healthy body without having to cut out major food groups. That being said I do think it would be beneficial to cut back on animal proteins to 4oz per serving (especially if you are experiencing endometriosis or PCOS) and make sure they are organic or/and free range/grass fed.
Q: Are there any side effects that I should be aware of while I am on the Fertility Cleanse?
A: I get asked this question quite a bit and have a couple of things to say. The first is to bring to light that the herbs in the Fertility Cleanse are whole herbs, which means they are not isolated or in any way similar to medications. There are some signs of cleansing that may show up such as moodiness from the cleansing effect on the liver and clots or tissues in the menstrual cycle following the cleanse that would come from the cleansing action of the cleanse (this is normal and healthy, you want this stuff to come out). If you follow the Fertility Cleanse instructions and drink plenty of water you should feel really good.
