Traditionally, a fertility cleanse was undertaken to purify and empower the energies of the body and mind in preparation for procreation.
Today we can embrace the ancient healing practices to rid our body from the accumulation of artificial hormones and impurities from our diet and environment, clear our mind from the unnecessary stress and anxiety, to strengthen our entire being, and boost fertility and encourage conception.
