Post Cleanse Week 4

Today, I write this as I lay in bed recovering from the flu (ironic huh). I realized this flu was one hell of a strange gift. The Flu=my hope. No I am not delirious with fever (not anymore atleast). Day 1, I felt as though "I got this... I am good" Day 2 "Not so bad" Day 3 "Oh shit I am dying"  Day 4 "Just take me out back and shoot me" Day 5..."There is HOPE!". Whenever I got sick in the past and I'd promise myself "I will do better, I will take better care of myself, I will appreciate my body more...blah blah blah". And then go back to my stressed ways. This time it was more of "what the...

Post Cleanse Week 3

Sometimes I think I am pretty smart and then I reread something and wonder "why did that info not stick the first time?". I never once associated my stomach bloat with my tiredness. So after being bloated for 2 weeks and totally feeling frustrated and let down (after 4 weeks of 99% awesomeness) I started reading again about gut health. I started with the Medical Medium chapter on Gut Health and the first few lines stated that bloat will cause exhaustion and went on to explain why. If properly not chewed or digested the food starts to rot and build up gas and that gas seeps into your blood and causes you to feel sluggish...well that makes sense. A definite "ah ha" moment....

Post Cleanse Week 2

It's so fascinating to reintroduce foods and see how the body responds. I was so excited to experience the past 2 weeks (cooked veggies and rice) to only be disappointed that my body doesn't like it as much as I do. 2 months prior to doing this cleanse I had my Chinese doctor tell me to stop eating vegetables (root and non-seeded vegetables) based on my body type of Metal Yang. I thought it was crazy, but I tried it. So I stopped eating anything with greens, etc...well I felt awful and relapsed (I was eating grains and meats on this metal diet too). However I did notice that my dry skin was gone. But that was all. So fast forward to the cleanse...I did...

Post Cleanse Week 1

Coming off of a cleanse deserves way more attention than the cleanse itself. It's really the post impact that no one really talks or warns you about. Monday morning after the cleanse I felt down and out. If you know me I am not a down person...more "Pollyanna" as some might say. But I realized I was down because I was mourning the loss of my cleanse. After many conversations with myself I realized it was more from boredom of not having something to focus on. Having a focus is energizing. In that moment I decided to find a new focus, so I made a small list of new goals to challenge myself.  Life is easy when your mind is...

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...
