Well, I did it. I felt like going further and I did. The first 8 days were just juice and smoothies made with Sun Warrior Protein powder and Hemp protein powder…so it has also been all raw….except for some dry spices, miso paste and tea. Last Thursday, which was day 4, a pimple popped out on my knee….a very painful pimple that I kept bumping. Throughout that day, the bottom of my foot progressively got more and more painful , (the right foot, the corn is always on the left). On Friday, I drank an extra green drink and thought that it had eased the pain a bit but it didn’t. On Saturday the pain was so bad that I was limping, it went from the top of my hip to the bottom of my heel. Thursday through Saturday…and Sunday morning, I did lots of yoga, drank water and did Reiki. Finally on Sunday, I was back to normal as if nothing had ever been wrong. I’ve read quite a bit that old wounds and illnesses will surface during a cleanse, especially if you weren’t eating right when it healed the first time. In that leg, I had broken the ankle….and that was a spot that really hurt, and I had topical skin cancer….but I was eating healthy when that was discovered. All toxins pool in the lower body, especially the hip area….I feel that I went through a nice detox. Just like always, when it got to the height of discomfort, I was ready to stop the fast….and just like always….I’m so glad that I didn’t. The past 3 days have been blended drinks instead of juice. Tomorrow I will start bringing solid foods back in….but raw.
The group I am leading is amazing, I couldn’t ask for better people! We have only had 2 meetings, but it just feels like such a good flow….I feel privileged to be with them.
