Welcome to my blog about natural plant-based pregnancy, this has been something that I’ve wanted to write for quite a while now. Natural pregnancy and childbirth are topics that I’m very passionate about. As some of you may or may not know already, but when I turned 21 I was given some pretty heartbreaking news that my chances of conceiving a child were not very high, in fact, I had some cervical issues at the time that required a surgical procedure. The good news is that later down the road I decided to take responsibility for my own health and I did heal. I healed so well in fact, that now have a 23-month-old son who is thriving on a plant-based diet alongside his mama.

Fluoride can damage health and fertility, destroy bones and teeth, and cause early puberty in children. It has been linked to thyroid issues, bone damage, arthritis, lower IQ, brain damage, alzheimer’s, destroying the male reproductive system and it is poison. In fact on toothpaste labels it says to call poison control if ingested.

Burdock has been an important botanical in Western folk herbalism and traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The root, leaf, and seed are used to make medicine. In tea or tincture Burdock can increase urine flow, kill germs, reduce fever, and “purify” their blood. Other times we apply burdock directly to the skin for wrinkles, dry skin (ichthyosis), acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
