Day 29 of my 29 day Cleanse

“The living food brings you back to life.”
-William, Anthony. “Medical Medium.” 

Be sure to read the bottom...I am excited to share this experience with someone who is ready for it!

Recap of Day 28: When you realize something is coming to an end, we hold on for dear life. That was me all day. I watched every moment more as the observer in awe. When you observe you witness some pretty amazing moments. While volunteering in my son's art class yesterday a magical moment happened. They were learning about Navajo sand painting and when his teacher asked for a recap of the lesson from the week before my son said "they used sand painting as a form of medicine for their people". My pride that my son understood that and took away a very important lesson. The power of healing is possible and comes in many different forms (not just a Rx bottle).

Day 29: I've dreamt of this day and wondered how I would feel. Well it's here and I get to say "I feel amazing". I also feel hungry, blessed, excited, thankful, open and cured. Yes I say that word because that is what I feel. I believe my health is in my hands and I choose to be cured. This wasn't just a reboot of health, this was a life reboot. I ate raw for 29 days, shaved my head, talked about poop, meditated with Deepak Chopra and had the most amazing team of holistic practitioners care for me (from massage, infrared, ozone, craniosacral to acupuncture and everything in between). And more importantly my mother thinks I look better...that alone says it all. 

Today I am off to Yoga in the AM and tonight I have a Mardi Gras party (still not drinking...staying strong for my last day). Which is ironic considering Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual of fasting for Lent. But at this party I plan to go in mask, dance my butt off (because I can) and celebrate this journey with friends. 

Lessons learned: 

  • I won't die if I just eat raw fruits and vegetables for 29 days
  • Real food is the best fuel for my body
  • Having a focus brings everything else into focus as well
  • Preparation is key
  • Cleansing is a spiritual experience 
  • The mind, body and soul together are very powerful
  • Life is so much sweeter when it's actually lived
  • Slow and steady wins the race
  • You can eat out and stay clean
  • There's still so much more to learn...

My Re-Entry plan: I plan to keep eating the way I have and introduce something new each week. This will help me see how my body reacts to each new food. Not sure what I will do with animal proteins (still undecided). 

    • Week 1: Roasted veggies and vegetable soups. 
    • Week 2: Brown Rice 
    • Week 3: Legumes 
    • Week 4: Nuts & Seeds
    • Week 5: Prep for Ayahuasca ceremony
    • Week 6: Ayahuasca ceremony 

If anyone has any desire to try this cleanse experience, I highly recommend it. It's not that hard and you won't die. The opposite might happen, you might start to live! 

My give back: I've loved this experience so much that I was inspired to reach out to my team of amazing holistic providers and together we are going to giveaway a 29 Day ReBoot. We want to help someone who is ready to take back their life and health. Stay tuned for more details...
