Is it true that one of the fastest a woman will detox is to have a baby? – By The Divine Company

According to Professor Marc Cohen, one of the fastest ways we detox is through maternal transfer when we are having a baby. Many of the chemicals that have accumulated in our body get transferred to our children during pregnancy hence why babies are being born with on average 287 chemicals in their little umbilical cords no.

Another way in which we detox is through breastfeeding and breastfeeding is the only thing I personally recommend as it is the only super food for our babies if we can possibly breastfeed, I believe we should, but we need to detox our body of fat soluble chemicals first because our babies deserve better than our breast milk that on average contains the world over approximately 200 chemicals.

Of the 287 chemicals found in out babies at birth, here is a list of the type recorded in the studies. Please note: some chemicals, as you can see below, are not just one class of chemical, but fall into multiply categories, e.g., some may be neurotoxic as well as carcinogenic or linked to hormone disruption.

And, here is a list of where we currently find ourselves as women in relation to hormone-related disorders.

We can transform so much of these challenges both within ourselves and prevent our babies from being born with these chemicals in their little bodies by simply removing the chemical burden we place on our body everyday.

To minimise our chemical burden, our daily rituals like skincare, personal care, eg, deodorants, body washes, toothpaste, etc, should be replaced with certified organic products that support not hinder our body yet have the same if not higher efficacy than that of traditional products.
