Nutrition

Holistic Nutrition focuses on Natural Whole Food consumption addressing deficiencies through dietary sources. We recommend you follow one primary rule when choosing foods; consume foods as close to it’s original source as possible.

For Pregnancy this is the safest and most effective to help the body heal from imbalances.

There are Iron, Folic Acid and Calcium requirements for a healthy pregnancy.

Iron requirements increase in pregnancy to support your growing blood volume, the baby and placenta. Iron rich foods are meat, fish and poultry, tahini, black strap molasses and raisins. Other non-animal sources of iron are best absorbed along with some vitamin C such as piece of fruit or vegetableand legumes.

Folic Acid is important to prevent neural tube defects such as spina bifida. It is especially important before pregnancy and through the first trimester. A supplement containing 0.4mg of folic acid should be taken daily. As well as taking a supplement, a diet high in folate can also help keep you and your baby healthy: dark green veggies such as green leafy vegetables spinach, kale, peas, and oranges.

Calcium absorption increases in pregnancy, so your needs increase. Most women do not consume enough calcium, and it is important for building your baby’s bones and teeth as well as maintaining yours. Eat or drink 3-4 servings of calcium rich products during your pregnancy.  Almond, rice or oat milk and other foods such as spinach, beans and figs are also good sources.

Keep your body hydrated starting with hot water and lemon in the morning will get your metabolism
started and helps detoxify your liver which will help with constipation.

Royal Jelly is a safe protien full of B Vitamins to help the nervous and endocrine system manage stress

Fish and Flax oils are crucial for brain development and also have been said to help with post partum.

"Acupuncture and TCM has completely changed my life. I was told by medical professionals that conceiving a baby would be difficult for me and that the use of fertility drugs and other methods of modern medicine would be the route I had to take. I wanted to try TCM and..."
