Naturopathy & Nutrition

We fertilize the soils with humus or manure to make sure that the seeds will germinate quickly and produce good fruits or vegetables. This is exactly the same with the human body: It needs some specific nutrients for growth and maintenance. Diet during pre-conception is very important to increase the fertility of the man, just as much as the woman’s, to clean the body, to balance the hormones, to avoid the deficiencies, to tone the immune system, etc. (give yourself a period of 6 months to a year). Once the child is conceived or after birth, the child has needs that are specific to their growth stage. The naturopath is a professional well recommanded to answer appropriately to questions about the nutrition of the infant as well as the mother’s.

Yoga

The decision to have a child is not taken lightly, neither is the preparation for pregnancy. While several restrictions come with this period, yoga is often suggested and recommended. Why ? Because it is gentle, it prepares the body of the future mother, it avoids several discomforts related to this stage, it strengthens some key muscle groups that will even help during delivery, and finally, it facilitates recovery. The practice of prenatal yoga strengthens the mother-child bond even before the actual birth of the child, and allows the parents to get to know great professionals who may be useful later and for them, and for other moms … Simple & enjoyable!

Functional training

Training during pregnancy helps to: improve circulation, reduce discomfort associated with muscle cramps, control weight gain, reduce the risk of developing pregnancy diabetes, prepare for delivery, and facilitate post-partum recovery. Although physical exercise during pregnancy brings a lot of benefits, it is important to have the consent of your doctor before starting any training program.

Qi gong chi gong chi kung

Qi Gong

Qi Gong will promote a harmonious pregnancy and a childbirth lived in presence. During pregnancy, it will enable the mother to feel and understand her physical and mental transformations. The exercises for pregnant woman are centered around having a natural, ample and deep breathing (immobile or in movement), with a rhythm adapted to the increasing constraints of the movement of the diaphragm. The fluidity and flexibility of the movements of the column and the pelvis (wave and circular movements) will allow the relaxation of the psoas. The search for sensations in the perineum, and a training to engage and relax it so that it regains its flexibility, elasticity and tone, will promote a better pre-delivery condition, and faster recovery after giving birth.
