The Can't Hurt Might Help Syndrome

So as I prepare for our IVF Cycle...40 days and counting...I am totally, completely engrossed in healthy living! This due much in part to my obsession with online research, blogs and discussion boards that preach over and over again the importance of optimal health in order to get a positive outcome for IVF! Here is what I have found and made myself adhere to:

1- I need to exercise at least 30 minutes EVERYDAY.

2- I need to STOP using cosmetics, shampoo, conditioner, lotion or anything topical that IS NOT natural and has any sort of chemicals in it!

3- I need to eat all organic foods. No junk- chips, sugar filled foods, pop, no fast food, etc.

4- I need to eat plenty of leafy greens everyday.

5- STOP storing food in anything plastic.

6- STOP using the microwave for anything food related.

7- Drink only osmosis water (Dasani Water is safe per my research).

8- Use only environmentally friendly household cleaners, soaps and detergents.

9- STOP eating cheese or anything with Caffeine.

10- INCREASE my intake of Fatty Acids and Alkaline foods.

AND I am going to add my own secret to this list:

11- PRAY and BE HAPPY!!!

In reality all of these things should be EVERYDAY living for all of us to ensure a long healthy life! But as our fast paced busy life consumes us this is not always a convenient way to live! BUT for the next 40 days I am committed to be completely and totally the most healthy person on this planet!

  1. WOW! Good for you! I have a suggestion. While you are going through this 40 days....read "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren. Good luck to you my friend. And, thanks for reminding me I need to catch up on blogging.
