With the New Year here, we figured it was the perfect time to begin our first cleanse of 2012. My mom even joined us! Usually we stick to juice cleanses along with lots of enemas, massage and saunas. Since i am still breast feeding Naia, i decided to just do a simple 6 day routine...
Day 1: Starts with a salt water flush. We drink about 2 liters of water each with 2 tsps of sea salt. This really gets things moving. Several juices throughout the day are followed with lots of water in between. At night i like to drink some sort of detox or herbal laxative tea before bed.
Day 2: Lots of water upon awakening then followed by a coffee enema. Several juices throughout the day. Night time herbal tea blend in the evening.
Day 3: Lots of water upon awakening followed by a coffee enema. Since this was mid point we decided to switch it up and do the master cleanse for a day. This consists of Lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne. We also got a colonic in the afternoon which is always amazing!! Night time herbal tea blend in the evening.
DAY 4: Lots of water upon awakening. morning enema to start off the day. Back to juicing and herbal tea at night. We also treated ourselves to an hour massage at the spa in town. Great for releasing those toxins.
Day 5: Last day of cleansing. Same routine as day 2
Day 6: One final enema except for this time we did a chlorella enema which helps to pull out the toxins. Fresh orange juice as our first morning drink. A while later we added some soaked figs and water to the vitamix for a simple smoothie snack. Late afternoon agustin made us some kind of green drink. I didn't ask what was in it but just enjoyed its savory taste. For dinner i made us a miso soup with a mixture of seaweeds. Yum! Such a beautiful feeling of gratitude in that first real meal!
My weight started off at 128 and when i weighed in on the 6th day i was at 118. Ten pounds gone and feeling so alive and vital in every way. Our bodies are our temples. Its crucial that they are loved up in every way possible!!!
