Can anyone advise me - I'm about to move into cleansing mode for a few months - my body is well overdue a serious spring clean!! I havent done any proper cleansing before as in following any particular protocols - I follow a 'detox' diet for a month at a time a few times per year (lots of veg, brown rice, water oils & seeds, nuts etc.) Otherwise I tend to go through cycles of eating fairly healthy for a few months and then eating poison junk for a few months - I tend to have problems with will power, and I am prone to depression, so when I'm down I tend to eat crap, which brings me down further, which makes me eat more crap.... you see how it works.
However then I get on a roll of eating well and looking after myself, which makes me feel amazing, which spurs me on to take even better care of myself.. and so on and so forth.
Well, late last year I started to come out of a very bad slump, during which time I really subjected my poor poor body to some horrendous trials of endurance (drinking between 4 - 8 units of alcohol every night; smoking 20 - 30 cigarettes per day; smoking marijuana every night... eating the worst kinds of take away & convenience foods...this type of behaviour tends to come in waves too, I DON'T always live like this - see above)
Anyhow - 5 months ago I gave up smoking (cigarettes and marijuana) and came off the contraceptive pill I had been taking for the last 5 years; 2 months ago I gave up alcohol and all meat & fish (still have occasional eggs & cheese)... and now I want to get all the toxic residue out and reprogramme my whole system - and I need your advice on the best way to do it!
My plan at this time is this -
I'm going to do the Colonix programme for a month, adding 1 tbsp Bentonite clay (have asked about this at Bowel Cleanse forum).
My diet during this will include a lot of freshly home made vege soups and pulses etc, as simple as possible. when month 1 is over, a break of a week, during which I will do a liver cleanse followed by a juice fast for 1 week. Then I will start month 2 of colonix, along with the Master cleanse ( I dont know how long for, waiting for the book in the mail so I can figure this out), when month 2 of colonix is finished, another liver cleanse.
So how is this for a plan? Will this be safe / effective?
Would the Master Cleanse be too severe for me at this time, should I try something gentler? I just want to get my system clean, won't feel good until I do.
(I also have about 50 lbs which I gained all in the last year that I want to lose although this is not my primary consideration in all of this)
Any advice you can give me will be much appreciated, looking forward to responses
Love to all,
