Pregnancy Pointers

Capture+_2018-05-20-10-46-24.pngThere are some who struggle with chronic sickness and infections, from allergy symptoms to UTI and more.  As you may know, infections and prescribed treatments can cause complications in pregnancy and parasite cleansing is simply not an option while pregnant or nursing.

Here are a few safe ways you can manage and maintain your health while pregnant and/or nursing.

I always pray to God for direction and listen to my body to do what feels right for me.

1.  Diet

Avoid all sugar dairy and grains as much as possible.  You would do best to eliminate them completely.


Drink plenty of clean purified water.

Eat lots of

  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Pumpkin seeds and pineapple juice blended together
  • Coconut oil

Try this simple home remedy.  Make ahead and use often with any symptoms of illness.

Healing Honey

  • Raw fresh garlic
  • Raw fresh ginger root
  • Raw fresh turmeric root if you can find it local
  • Raw local honey
  1. Grate, chop and/or press fresh ingredients and fill your size choice of mason jar to the top, cover ingredients with honey, let sit for an hour and add more honey to fill remainder of the jar leaving ¼ inch head space.  
  2. Clean neck and rim with damp cloth or paper towel.  Seal with clean lid and ring.
  3. Store 6 weeks in cupboard and keeps longer in refrigerator or cool location.

2.  Supplement with

  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin c – liposomal C
  • Charcoal to remove any die off toxins released
  • Magnesium malate

Be sure to keep bowels freely moving.

3.  Hygiene

Detox baths at night

  • Borax and vinegar​ 1/2 – 1 C each thieves 8-10 drops diluted in a soap base to evenly distribute and avoid burns

Shower in am if you have any signs of intestinal worms with anal itching.  Worms and parasites are nocturnal.

Wellness Mama shares a GBS protocol and is a good idea if you suspect any signs of infections such as yeast infection, GBS as well as any intestinal worms.

change your panties regularly and wash or bag them immediately.

Wash laundry

Hottest setting possible.  Be cautious not to burn you or kids.

Borax and vinegar.  1/2 – 1 C combined

Bag directly out of dryer according to each persons items.

Clean house

Thyme and thieves are a great non toxic home cleaning option that do the job well.

Get everyone involved if possible.

Treat the whole family the same, as well as add..

  • Black walnut
  • wormwood
  • cloves


Note: stress makes things worse so use this time to slow down, ask for help, pamper yourself and know you are not alone.  By keeping your body clean inside and out, you will create an undesirable living environment for the infections and you will minimalize the effect it has on your body and growing baby.

Don’t forget to return to this and complete an full detox and cleanse after you wean your child and eliminate and lingering guests.

Additional information

Here is an article by Dr Axe for you to reference and use after pregnancy and nursing and for the family.


This is not medical advice and I make no claim of safety.  As always you should discuss the best options with your midwife or OB while pregnant or nursing.

Antibiotics are dangerous while pregnant and should be carefully considered.  I personally will never take them again.

I have treated the flu, GBS and mastitis infections successfully and effectively with all of these treatments.

Flu- garlic, ginger, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, clean eating and more. The most important thing is water.

GBS- wellness mama protocol

Mastitis– raw garlic clears up my achiness in one day.  Detox baths as stated above with Lavender essential oil and massaging the hard lumps of breast and nursing nursing nursing and rest.  Or pumping and rest.  Hot, wet compresses.  Rice heat packs do well to keep towels hot.  My friend used my healing honey with the same fast overnight results.

The most important part of all this is process is to pray to God and to listen and trust your body to tell you to ease up or stop treating.

I am a mother of five children and 120 pounds on a heavy day. I grew up eating the average American diet and seemed pretty healthy until I found myself exhausted and struggling with kidney stones, sleepless nights and unmanageable skin issues. I stumbled across the answers that would soon unlock some keys to my healing and recovery. Eliminating added sugars, eating whole non GMO food, fermenting and gardening, homeschooling and my continued learning. Come join my journey and continue your own. Today, it has been over 2 years of being FREE FROM ECZEMA and I am working on continued gut healing and preventing new kidney stones. Please note: I do not claim to have all the answers and base my FACTS on my own experiences and conclusions. Please take time to pray for healing and direction, research on your own, ask questions, seek out an expert and start low and slow. We are all created unique and live different lifestyles and nothing is the same for everyone. Be blessed on your journey. I owe it all to the creator of all things, glory be to God!
