Detox 101: February 28th

Well, I have finished my 48 hour Master Cleanse. It was a great experience and surprised me in so many ways. Who would think that you could actually enjoy not eating much but some steamed veggies once or twice a day for two straight days and just drink tea or water, lemon, cayenne pepper and maple syrup?  Well I did and it was very therapeutic.  Now that it is over, I am going slow reintroducing foods and eating less than I did before the cleanse. Gradual reentry is good.  The official day to start is tomorrow and some of you have let me know that you will be doing it next week. The ODA trip this weekend has affected some plans. If anyone is doing it this weekend and wants some support, please let me know! Love to hear from you and how you are doing! It is fun to share...

Detox 101: Day Two

Hi to tour Group!  I am on day 2 of the modified Master Cleanse. This morning my alarm was not necessary.  I was up and out before it went off! The dry brushing was really helpful and the hot shower felt great. Journaling is good because a lot is coming up that certainly hasn't had the time or space to come up before. My days are busier than I would like but the thermos is filled with the cleanse and my mind feels super sharp! The hunger comes and goes so riding that wave is interesting. No specific food cravings at this time. Hopefully some of you are going to do the cleanse and if you can't this weekend, let me know and I will be happy to coach you through at a later date. For me, it has already had so many benefits, it will become a regular routine to...

Detox 101: Master Cleanse

We are going to start a Detox as a group on Friday.  We have choices to make about which one suits us best. I have chosen The Master Cleanse by Paul Pitchford because I want to try something new that I have done before. So far, so good. In order to lead the group, I wanted to start a little earlier and give you the highlights of what comes up and how to move through it. There are  brief moments of hunger but they have passed quickly. Also a good reminder to drink the cleanse of spring water, lemon, cayenne pepper and Grade B Organic Maple Syrup. I get busy and forget to drink more! It does not help to drive by any food stores or restaurants! That increased the challenge!  When feelings of being cool or empty come up, warm herbal tea has hit the spot!  It is interesting to...

Detox 101: Mid-February Green Pick-Me-Up

It provides all the nutrients of a green food which is rich in probiotics and it enhances your digestion as well as your nutrient absorption. I will share with you what I put into my VitaMix.
