Pregnant. When I was in my early 20’s, I read Adele
Davis’s book, “Let’s Eat Right To Keep fit.” I learned from her that “you are what you
eat.” I also learned that our babies are what we
eat while we are pregnant, and then are what they eat once they are born. If you nurse your babies, then they continue
to be what you eat as long as you are nursing them. My bible during my first pregnancy over 38
years ago was “Let’s Have Healthy Children,” also by Adele Davis. I started to follow her guidelines way before
getting pregnant, knowing that my health had a big effect on my baby’s health. There is much more information about good
nutrition available today, and I want to encourage anyone who wants to have healthy children
to start early in learning about and implementing a healthy way of eating. Educating yourself regarding good nutrition
is a major part of good parenting. However, a good rule of thumb is, if they
didn’t eat it 200 years ago, don’t eat it now! This means no fast food, no packaged food
– including sodas, cakes and candies – no preservatives, no fruits and vegetables grown
with pesticides or artificial fertilizers, or animals grown with hormones and fed food
grown with pesticides. It also means no smoking or drinking. It means no caffeine. If you want healthy children, you need to
put pure, clean organic food into your body before you get pregnant and continue throughout
your pregnancy. Of course, then you want to continue to feed
yourself and your family clean food once your children are born. If you are pregnant or thinking about getting
pregnant, you have a wonderful opportunity to lay a strong foundation of health for your
child. Why not start now feeding yourself well and
learning all you can about creating healthy children? You are going to be a parent the whole rest
of your life. You can do so much to make your parenting
experience a joyful one by taking responsibility for your own physical and emotional health
before getting pregnant. If you have not been disciplined enough to
eat well before getting pregnant, perhaps the idea of eating well for your child will
be enough to motivate you. It’s not as hard as you might think. It really doesn’t take much more time to
eat well than to eat junk. And the payoff is huge. Not only were my three babies healthy, they
were calm. They slept well and were happy children, who
learned easily and did well in school. The only time they were hyperactive – actually
bouncing off walls! – was after returning from birthday parties where they had ice cream,
cake and sodas. In my many years of counseling, I’ve often
worked with parents who were struggling with their children’s behavior problems. Of course not all behavior problems are nutritional,
but you might be surprised how many problems have their cause in poor nutrition. I’ve often wondered why so many people are
careful to put the right octane in their gas tank but put the wrong fuel into their bodies
– and then wonder why there is so much illness, learning disabilities, and so on. I want to tell you a little story about the
power of food. We had a 6 month old golden retriever puppy
who was dying of irritable bowel syndrome. He had constant diarrhea and was getting thinner
and thinner by the day. We had been giving him the very best quality
kibble and it wasn’t working. Fortunately we learned about raw food for
dogs. Within two meals of raw food, he was completely
healthy! Here I had been studying nutrition for so
many years and it had never occurred to me that a dog’s natural diet is raw food! Wow, what a lesson! If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
