When I started taking hormones for my fertility treatments, I began noticing different side effects on my body, which came from all the medicines. Tiredness, mood swings, acne, weight gain, all of these symptoms were normal, but very unpleasant.
After my first miscarriage, I felt like my body needed a break from the hormones. By that time, I had gone through so many treatments, and taken way too many hormones, that I needed a cleanse.
I started looking at different health videos and reading blogs to see how I could change my diet, in order to give my body better nutrients. I found out about juice cleanses, also known as Juicing, that were becoming a huge thing at the time.
Juicing is a "detox" in which a person consumes only fruits and vegetables juices for a day or a few days, you can not eat any solid or processed foods.
At first, when I heard about these juices, I thought it would be impossible for me to last a whole day without eating solid foods. I love to eat, I love to go to restaurants, but then I thought, if I have gone through so much, how can I not do this? So I ordered my 3 day juice cleanse and I did it. It was not easy at all, but I felt amazing. My skin, my body, my heart, everything felt so much better.
After doing my first round of cleansing, I felt so good that I decided to do a one day cleanse every week, until the next round of IVF. Every Monday I would get my juice delivery, and every Tuesday I would juice all day. It really felt amazing, the benefits were unbelievable, my whole body and mind felt completely different, focused, relax, clean.
I can't assure this actually helped me getting pregnant on my very next IVF treatment, but in general, I feel it helped me a lot.
