So, this week’s cleanse has progressed along nicely. We’ve followed our routine of a morning shot of Aloe and tall glass of water, but I’ve also added Oil Pulling to that routine the moment I wake up. Today was the first day that I noticed my teeth actually getting whiter from it. Had a similar diet these last few days mostly with Flax Flakes in the morning with either almond milk or yogurt. A salad of some sort for lunch, and a veggie dish for dinner (last night I made a Sweet Potato and Lentil soup with a whole lotta turmeric and other spices with some yummy bread). And each day we’ve either had a green smoothy or fresh juice around one of our meals. Then we take our psyllium and bentonite shakes and one capsule of charcoal in the evening. Last night I also upped the dosage to 2 tablespoons of bentonite. We’ve started to take magnesium as our downward purger to help things move through our intestines.
Yesterday I had some “Cleanse and Detox Tea” from Gaia Herbs, and wholly moley… I was peeing and pooing all day. I almost exploded with pee while Sequoia was napping on me. I didn’t want to get up and wake her, so I was holding it… and I seriously almost peed myself! I had five solid poops yesterday and I peed I don’t know HOW many times… About to, reluctantly, have some more of that tea this morning.
Minus a poor night’s sleep by all of us last night, in general my energy levels have been great, and I’ve been feeling wonderful! My skin has been clearing up, and now that it’s been more than a week since being off coffee, I don’t have the afternoon “crash” that had become such the norm over these past few months.
This is also the longest I’ve been off any kind of meat since being on an Ayahuasca diet years ago in the Amazon. I used to take a lot more time away from meet when I was doing heavy Kriya and Kundalini Yoga practices, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve done that. While my eastern European background loves me some meet, I’m quite happy to give it a rest right now.
Next week, we’ll up the shakes to twice a day, and later in the week do a liver flush. I also plan on doing an enema next week (woo hoo!).
If anyone is currently cleansing too, I’d love to hear from you! You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Facebook!
