Pregnancy and Perfect Babies: Beginning Life on Raw Foods

By Bob McCauley, ND

“Meet the disease at its first stage.”   ~ Publilius Syrus

An expectant mother on a Raw-food Diet will give birth to a healthier baby than a motherpregnant whose diet consists mainly of cooked foods.  The fetus of an expectant mother who is a raw foodist receives nutrients that can only be derived from nature.  A fetus will only be as healthy as the nutrients that the host mother is providing to it.  Expectant mothers should move slowly to the Raw-food Diet.  She should not put herself through a major detoxification while pregnant because it would be too much strain on her and her fetus.

Another critical issue with pregnancy is proper hydration of the body.  Pregnant women with morning sickness and chronic headaches are often not sufficiently hydrated.  Considering that the embryonic sack that a fetus develops in is 99% water, pregnancy is as much about water as anything else.  Like any other living creature, a fetus functions best in a well hydrated environment.  A pregnant woman should consume 1 – 2 gallons of water per day, preferably Ionized Water.

Baby boy posingGenetic disease, chromosomal damage and other genetic anomalies occur with greater frequency when the mother has lived on a cooked-food diet, spent her pregnancy eating processed junk foods or putting other toxic substances in her body such as cigarette smoke or alcohol.  The imbalances and nutritional deficiencies that occur when we live on a cooked-food diet increase the potential of chromosomal damage that produces genetic disorders such as Cystic Fibrosis and Down Syndrome.  Poor diet can also keep a woman from becoming pregnant because her body is not functioning as it ought to due to improper nutrition.  A fetus that is fed nutrients that come from raw foods will have a much better chance of not being born with these genetic disorders or other health problems.  The earlier in life we become a raw foodist, the better.
