below is the Plan of Action
recommended by Dr Glenville as being the
most appropriate and effective for you at this time
This plan of action includes advice on your diet and a carefully selected
supplement programme. For best results you should follow this plan over the
next three months.
Plan of Action
To ensure you are getting the right nutrition, follow the dietary recommendations
outlined in The Nutrition for Women's Health report which you can get free, together with two other health reports, by clicking on the 3 Free Health Reports box in the top left corner.
Your baby gets first call on all the nutrients it needs, so you need to make
sure that you are feeding yourself well and taking in enough nutrients to keep
yourself healthy. These nutrients will also help to give you energy, and to
prepare you for the birth and looking after your baby when he / she is born.
Apart from eating well, there are certain supplements that should be taken
during pregnancy. I'm not suggesting megadosing anything - simply ensuring that
you have adequate levels of everything that is now proven to be essential for
your baby. Unfortunately much of the food we eat no longer contains adequate
levels of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and unless you eat entirely
organic, and a hugely varied diet, it unlikely that you will be getting enough.
Your Supplement Programme
Vitamins and Minerals
- A good multivitamin and mineral tablet designed for pregnancy. This multi
should contain the B vitamins (including folic acid), vitamin A (at less than
2,500 iu), calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium and chromium.
- Omega 3 oils (EPA 700mg, DHA 500mg)
If you have had a previous episode of pre-eclampsia then add an extra:
- Vitamin C (500mg per day)
At the end of three months you should reassess your condition and adjust your
supplement programme accordingly.
It is very important when you are choosing supplements, for you to choose
only the highest quality supplements you can find. This is because many of
the poorer quality brands often have large quantities of fillers and other
non-essential ingredients - which in some cases could actually be harmful to
you - and the vitamins and minerals they contain may be in very low, ineffective
dosages. You may also find that the higher doses you require are not generally
available to the public.
