I'm ready for spring but thankful for the snow day. We already have about eight inches on the ground and it is still falling. It really is beautiful unless you are shoveling or driving in it. A while back I read a book by a woman who claims that at 42 she became pregnant "naturally" by changing her lifestyle, mainly her diet. She believes that by fasting for three days you can release all of the toxins from your body and basically will be healthier after. During the fast you can have juices (made fresh) of course and organic fruits and vegetables if need be. I have had an organic apple and water so far today and I'm getting ready to make my first batch of juice. The acupuncturist that I'm seeing told me three days is to long to do this fast and she would prefer I only fast for one day. I'm thinking of compromising and doing it for two days depending on how this first day goes. After the fast you are suppose to eat only organic products especially meats, milk and eggs. At least there are a lot more organic products to choose from now than there were a few years ago. I was impressed with my first shopping trip to Trader Joe's, lots of fresh organic products. If someone would have told me two years ago I would be fasting and doing acupuncture I wouldn't have believed them. Funny all of the crazy things we do to have a baby, when others seem to get pregnant so easily. I've stopped trying to analyse why this is the case. I've just decided that all of us have different journeys and there are no answers for now. I hope 2011 is a great year for fertility!
