Let's talk about something that has dumbfounded me for years; Pre-Conception Planning. How often does it happen? And how often does it happen to the extent that it should? Obviously some couples get pregnant on accident, so no planning can be done in that case but having a baby is a BIG deal and if we're planning on it, shouldn't we really PLAN it? We need to make sure our bodies are ready to create another person, after all. You'll never see someone who breeds race horses breeding their sickest horse, they breed their healthiest of course! So why don't we treat our own reproduction like this? Why don't we make sure we are at optimal health before we try and conceive? For most people, maybe it's the length of time it takes to prepare your body.
-If you've been eating the Standard American Diet then I recommend 2-3 years of a nutrient dense diet before conceiving.
-If you've been eating well I still recommend 6 months to a year of preparation.
