2 and a half weeks ago today I ended a 5 1/2 day water fast.
When I had set the date I was not returning to the UK the day after, events changed though and that's what happened.
I experience the deepest, toughest detox of my life during these days.
It was brutal.
So what was the point?
Well I was chasing the spiritual experience along with healing the body of a few minor symptoms still lingering from post menopause. Very slight, but I want and will have them all gone.
I was taken aback at the detox, did not expect it at all, the last fast I did was 10 days, 5 water, 5 juice and I felt brilliant, a few tired days, but this was completely different.
Then I had to fly back to the UK and go to my friends wedding on the saturday, so it was not exactly the best run out. If I had been staying in Malta I would have carried on with the fast until the body had cleared, but due to flying and wedding this was not possible.
I weaned myself back with some fruit and a few veggies. Then I had some dellcious salmon with ginger and chillis when I stayed at my daughters 2 days later, it was the first thing I really enjoyed.
Weird because again with previous fasts I have loved eating again, but not this time.
I decided to keep wheat and refined sugars out my diet as I feel my gut needs to heal. This has helped my bloating and discomfort 100%, what a difference.
But going to a Scottish wedding, what to drink?
Nothing nicer than a few glasses of bubbles and wine, but that is the worst thing, along with beer, that you can drink.
So I decided on whisky. With water.
It was a magical day and I stuck to a few drams but I cannot say I really enjoyed it.
Clearly leaving alcohol out is the best way for healing, but it is dreich here in Scotland at this time of year, and I have found myself looking at my daughters glass of wine.
I know its just a habit, so I am refusing, still enjoying the effects of the fast and not wanting to slip back into old habits.
But I also know that its party season and there will be loads of "occasions" coming up, this will be the test, but when you have gone through a fast like that you really dont want to give up the benefits.
My love for coffee has gone. No young person likes coffee initially, we teach ourselves to like it. So I have lost the love, but I am drinking it again, and it tastes not that great, but I am still doing it. Then eventually I will like it again, because of all the associations.
Mental eh? Just like wine and beer, an acquired taste that you can teach the body to like and need.
Still not sure about whisky though!
Lets look at what my symptoms are, even although they are hardly noticeable now, I know I am still at maybe 90% full power.
My back is miles better, but I can get an odd twinge depending on what I am doing, that has to completely go. Same with my shoulder, I can do yoga no bother now (I could not for over a year) but on certain movements there is still an indication of something. Bloating a sign of high inflammation, it has gone, let's see if I have anything off the list over the festive what happens.
Itchy ears and throat and funnily enough tops of my shoulders!? Thats all but gone, slight evidence the odd day, but all but gone. I also get a contraction in my chest, that still comes an odd time, but much better now, used to wake me up every night. Energy levels were ok, but again maybe 80-90% of what I know I can be, and will be.
The dark and wet in Scotland along with being inside so much and the damp, my body does not enjoy that much, but I am miles better than I was last year, so all good.
I am loving being back on the Vibrogym, makes me feel amazing, and I will get into the amazing far infra red sauna this week too.
So the healing journey continues, boy how I look forward to Summer in Malta :)
Why did I do the fast?
In february I did the fast to heal my post menopausal arthritis symptoms. By the end of day 4 I was high, seeing energy and really felt I had made a huge breakthrough with my health. Not just from the fast, but from my 6 weeks of intensive healing programme, which started with a 10 day fast, 5 water, 5 juice.
This time I felt great, I knew my energy levels were getting lower, enjoying going to bed at 8pm is a sign your energy is low no matter how happy you are. So I thought let me fast while I have nothing major to heal and then I will have an amazing spiritual experience. Hahahahahaha, twas not to be.
Day 1 headache started around lunchtime which totally threw me as I often dont eat till then. I went a lay down from around 6pm. Then went to the airport at 1am to pick up my friend. We sat out on the deck chatting for a couple of hours, all good till we realised we were locked out! By some sheer miracle I had my bag out there and by another sheer miracle my flatmate had his phone switched on and heard our plea to wake up and let us in. He was laughing thankfully when he saw us locked out there.
Day 2 woke early, felt good, wanted to show Jane the pool and the beach so we got our water and headed to Riviera. Stayed on the sand, had a wee nap, all good on day 2. At 8pm 10 friends arrived to partake in a weekend of Sublime we. After the first circle I went to bed before they had dinner .Slept ok, woke up a few times but no biggy.
Day3 woke up feeling amazing, felt I was chattering like a budgie but really felt high and inspired. We started the circles and around lunchtime I started another headache and felt quick sick, flu like. We were doing a releasing dance we call dance and shake which is 45 mins of fairly intense exercise. I was not sure if I could last it but the music was soooo amazing I went back to my old aerobic days and powered it up. I felt ok at the time and even joined in the last 2 sessions but by evening I felt like shit. I went to bed and tossed and turned all night. Felt like I hd the flu, burning, twitching, aching all over especially this old wound in my abdomen and lower back. Torture. Jane meantime is lying in the bead beside me, just back from the pool, loving life reading and enjoying the rest and feeling absolutely fine. Quite annoying. That is how I expected to be.
Day 4 woke up feeling terrible, limped through to the group, took part in first session but had to lie down. By lunchtime the only option was bed so I went there at 2 and did not move till the next morning. So nauseous too. Did not even want to drink water but half assed poured it in. Slept most of the time, but waking up now and then to moan. Jane still fine.
Day 5 woke up still felt shit, knew I could not take part in the group so me and Jane went to pool with enormous duvet for cloudy moments and slept out there. Now Jane started to feel it, was day 4 for her. sore back with slight nausea. We were a right pair lying in the sun with our bottle of water and the big duvet for when the temperature dropped. But it could have been a lot worse. Fairly cool hospital we made for ourcellves. Went to bed and slept more peacefully.
Day 6 woke up with zero interest in food but defo feeling much better. Still slight nausea and no desire to walk but defo a noted improvement. I knew I was breaking through the detox and in the ideal world woud liked to have kept going to get to the natural high but between flying to the UK and a wedding in a few days, I had to regain my strength and get rid of the nausea properly so I ate some fruit followed by a big salad at lunchtime then I made a delicious veggie soup for night, just what I needed. Jane is now in the nic I was in yesterday, she was one day behind me and was determined to see it through.
Day 7 - woke up excited, much more energy, flying home to see my friends family and grandchildren. Jane is the same as I was yesterday, a bit better but not diving to the kitchen, its strange you imagine you would, possibly feeling sick stops that mind you.
I am a healer and I teach people how to detox. I have done more juice fasts than I can remember and this is my 3rd water fast.
I have never experienced anything like that, but when you go online and check, its all there.
My diet leading in was super clean, I geniunely felt it was going to be a walk in the park, maybe thats why it hit my arrogant ass so hard. If I felt like that bad normally I would take a lemsip to escape the pain, but I just had to nurse the body through with hot baths, some body work, wee bit of yoga, but it was still tough.
But I know the crisis is the cure.
I know the body is healing and releasing and often like a candida die off it can be brutal and it can last for days upon days.
The more pain the more toxic you are, and I have not treated this body with the greatest respect every one of my 55 years. There is stuff contained in there that needs to be released and that can be tough.
That is when most people give up, that's when people say its not good for you, that's when people say I got really ill, coz you do! But you need to get through it, for the bodys sake.
THE POWER OF FASTING
The incredible healing power of fasting in relatively unknown in the West.
If you want to heal the body in the fastest most powerful way, this is it.

Preparation is Key
Before I launch into how I’m progressing, it is worth noting that my case of candida overload is perhaps not as severe as others. My symptoms have been ongoing rather than chronic, and I don’t think I’ve had the same triggers as others. For example, I have not been on countless courses of antibiotics, and was not raised on sugary drinks and junk food. In fact, quite the opposite: a fizzy soft drink was so rare that when I begged for it as a treat on a special occasion, the result every time was for me to whisper a request for a glass of water please, and apologize to my mum for wasting the can of coco cola now left on the restaurant table.
When I was in my early teens, however, my concerned mother did decide to take me to an acupuncturist in an attempt to get to the bottom of why I was constantly suffering from various ailments, such as allergies and itching, sore sinuses, digestive issues and recurring migraines. I was diagnosed as “vertically ill” by this acupuncturist, and advised to withdraw wheat and dairy from my diet as well as continuing to see her. Of course, my mum enforced this at home when she could, but the fact of the matter is that I pretty much disregarded it. No bread? No cheese? No cereal? No way.
Admittedly, my bad habits have been developed further in later life, but even today, if given the choice, and convenience were not a factor, I would always opt, without hesitation, for a healthy home-cooked meal over any form of fast food or takeaway, and water is still my choice drink (alongside a glass of red wine, obviously).
So now that I’m listening to Lilia’s advice, and harking back to that of my mum and the acupuncturist, I’m finally taking heed. Of course actually making the decision and a subsequent dedicated and conscious effort is a huge step, but equally as important is recognizing how pertinent it is to be prepared. As the old saying goes, “failing to prepare is preparing to fail”, and oh how true it is - particularly in our convenience-driven lives today. We have to make it easy to stay on track, otherwise we won’t. Or I certainly won’t.
For the most part, I’ve been doing pretty well. I’m consuming coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and probiotics daily – in fact, they have become new, and enjoyable, habits already. Bread has been cut, as has dairy and sugar, and with one exception, I have refrained from alcohol with next to no cravings. Rather than my brain or the candida telling me subconsciously that it requires the sugar, the issue I’ve had is with social habits, and eating for convenience.
I’ve just started a new job, and therefore a certain initiation is required. Now, if you work in hospitality, as I do, life itself is based on the social associations of food and drink. Every hour you work is focused upon it, and what’s more, the hospitality crowd generally sticks together outside of work to revel in their enjoyment of good food, fine wine and craft beer. That’s not to say that good food is no longer an option – of course it is, in abundance! But I have to admit to the fear of becoming even a close resemblance to one of those fussy, dietry-requirement customers, who make our daily jobs an absolute nuisance! As for the wine and beer, even the most naturally brewed ales and finest red wines are a no-no at the moment, despite constantly waxing lyrical about how good they are.
Needless to say, after a beer training session, the staff had an impromptu evening out to get to know one another, and of course I slipped up. The temptation was too much, and I also didn’t want to be the girl that doesn’t drink or get involved. If I had been driving, or had an upcoming exam, it would be perfectly socially acceptable not to drink. In fact, looking back, I’m sure no one would have batted an eye if I opted for a sparkling water. Ok, maybe a couple would have.
Other than social associations, my other struggle has been with convenience, and hence the need to be prepared. After a ten-hour day at work, having had nothing but my morning coffee, and returning home to an empty fridge, I completely binged on takeaway pizza – because it was all that was available (none of the supermarkets here are open after tea-time on Sunday). I literally would have been better off not eating at all, and I certainly regretted the decision.
The repercussions of the pizza were far worse than any hangover! My body went into a familiar, but much more sever, revulsion – feeling bloated and sick almost instantly, and an upset stomach just a couple of hours later. I was physically ill the next day, with sweats I can only describe as toxic, along with lower back pain, headaches and constipation. This might all sound extreme, but these symptoms have been common for me for a long time – and I have always known they were directly related to wheat consumption. So why have I continued? Laziness probably.
I think having not had any wheat for a little while perhaps made the effects worse on this occasion, and I’m glad that’s the case because I certainly don’t feel the need to reach for a slice of pizza again! I will, however, try to ensure that I am a good Girl Guide in my approach to these changes, always being prepared so as not to resort to such extremes. From now on I won’t be starving myself all day, will keep a bag of nuts in my handbag to snack on, and will always have something in the fridge or cupboard to eat. Meanwhile, I will have to prepare my mind for the social restraint…
The final day of the fast is today.
Totally different from the last one, much more painful suggesting there is more to heal. Who knows. I have done loads of fasts and had headaches and aches but the last day and a half has been brutal.
On day 3 we did some crazy aerobic dancing, brilliant music but high intesity dancing.
You did not need to do that but because the music was soooo good and I thought it would speed up the detox I chose to give it laldy.
Then in the evening I felt like shit, but put it down to that.
Yesterday morning I felt slighty better but as the morning went on I just had to lie down. Around 2 I came to my bed and have not moved out of it since.
This morning I am marginally better ie I am writing this blog but still feeling like I have full blown flu. My lower back through to a scar on my belly aches, my whole body feel weird, my head is heavy and sore. Its really brutal, I started thinking maybe I did get flu by coincidence at the same time but when I looked on line for what to expect on day 4.....this is it.
This never happened the last time I was high and light by day 4, would not have rushed into it if I had known this was part of the pleasure this time!
My pal has been amazing suffering none of the severe symptoms like me but last night she did not sleep (that happened to me last time but not this one) all night and also has a sore back.
So I know the body is healing, the crisis is the cure, and I will wait and see how I feel in the morning to make a decision if I should fast another day or not.
I have not been hungry at all. A slight nausea so thats one up side, no desire to eat.
Thinking of a nice crunchy apple tomorrow. Lets see how today goes.
Hopefully this will pass quickly.
Will do some tapping, Sedona and Emotion codes on it too.
Have a great week everyone, love from my bed.
Half way through the fast.
Its a strange thing but it is so much easier than you would think, once you decide.
This is only my second water fast but I have done tons of juice fasts and I think they are harder, the only explanation I have for that is you are kind of getting food so it makes you want more.
The first day I felt like shit, which I totally did not expect as I had a very clean diet in the week up, shows me again every experience is different no matter what you do.
More annoying cause my pal from Scotland flew in to fast with me and had been out at Kevin Bridges the night before hammered, and she is suffering no detox symptons, when I asked her how she was feeling today when she was lying at the pool she said "MAGIC!"
Seriously there is no God :)
Then yesterday the headache was there but much lighter, hardly noticeable.
Today I woke up high as a kite, chattering like a budgie who had just had 3 tequilas, I actually felt pleasantly pissed. (promise I wasnt)
That is not the way it normally roles, but this time it did.
Last night we started a Retreat called Sublime We, its in my house but being run by someone else. Really fascinating concept about transparent communication.
I am staying out the way at meal times, gutted because I have a raw chef living in my house and cannot eat his amazing food! Bad timing, but hey ho I know how amazing I will feel on tuesday.
We just did a dance release method which involved going mental to the best music EVER then shaking the body for 5 minutes after each track. Was great fun but was not sure how I would manage with the high intensity but I loved it and now feel very zen.
So over half way there, got a dull ache in my lower abdomen so going to do some tapping, releasing and emotion codes, see what works on it.
During the winter in Scotland I decided to boot my health up the ass.
Having suffered candida, chronic fatigue on and off most of my adult life the menopause came and really woke me up.
Health, be honest, we take it for granted until it gets taken away, or until you get older.
For me it was pain, chronic pain, aches in my lower back and shoulder, pain that I knew I could get rid off, but didnt bother my arse until it got to a level of waking me up.
That still intrigues me, why on Earth did I wait until then to do something about it?
I think that is how most of us behave.
As Hale Dwoskin says, most of us are not suffering enough to make the changes.
This time I am not waiting. I feel fab but know I can feel even better than this as I did at the end of the Immersion Retreat. I would like to feel that way for at least most of the rest of my life. I am well over 3/4 through it, why would I not make the most of these last 25 or so years, if I am lucky.
I lost another friend a few weeks ago and her daughter wrote a poignant and gut busting, tear jerking post on facebook about the choices we make. When her mum died they had enormous support and everyone asked the question "is there anything we can do"?
Yes there is, you can make choices to ensure you stay here with your children and family for as long as possible.
Watching anyone die when you feel "if only they had not done so much of this" you would maybe still be here, makes it harder, makes death more senseless.
The things that we choose to do on a daily basis that destroy the body.
The things that we know we should not do but we do anyway.
Is it cigarettes, is it alcohol, is it spending all your spare time on the sofa watching harmful tv, is it negative attitudes and relationships, is it junk food, I could go on, but I know you get it.
Life is about balance and we all know and have seen people who have lived the life and made it to a good old age.
Life is also about fun, joy, love and vitality.
Being happy and detached is definitely the way ahead, but todays information overloaded fear based media makes that a challenge.
Even when you do all the good stuff there are no guarantees because we still do not fully understand why some people get sick.
We are emotional beings, everyone functions differently within that, impossible for science to measure.
But we do know when we are out of balance.
Just like we know when our computer slows down and need some attention, same with our car, we know action has to be taken.
So this fast is me taking action. Give the body which has served me incredibly well because I have abused it big time.
I was mindless, I had no idea my words, feelings and beliefs stressed it so bad.
Partying every weekend for most of my life must have taken its toll.
Now it squeaks, quite literally lol it needs oils, water, sunshine, nutrients and love and attention along with respect.
Will my choices break my children and grandchildrens hearts?
I can take action as from now and do my best for my body and my family and friends.
Vitality and love for life is your birthright.
Sometimes you just need to take some action to feel it again.
We get good at things by repeating and practising over and over.
Take playing the piano for example, if you have never played it, you would not expect to be good at it after one lesson.
All change and new things are the same. We go through the exact same process no matter what it is we are trying to create and get good at.
1. We decide. We have the thought and we put power behind it by deciding we are going to have, be, see, do something.
2. Focus and action. We put our mind towards it, we plan and we take the relevant action.
3. We repeat, release and allow a time lapse knowing that if we keep going we or the thing will arrive.
Turn this to healing.
My healing plan possible sounds insultingly simple.
But have you decided you are going to heal, are you focussing and taking action, are you repeating the necessary action, thinking and intention on a daily basis.
Repetition can be boring if you are not actively involved in the intention and the outcome.
Commit enough daily sins against nature and you will experience disease.
My healing plan takes you back into alignment with Nature, the thing you need to do, repeat on a daily basis to return to optimum health and vitality.
It takes years to depress the immune system normally, that is why it is so mental that you would expect to rebalance it in a few days.
But wow how quickly the body bounces back for us when we understand what it needs.
Like a household plant, food (real food) water, sunshine, attention and love.
When your repeat the good stuff day after day, you will see a result. 100% guaranteed.
But where is your patience, where is your love and respect for the body, where is your attention and intention?
Doubt and impatience are our biggest enemies when it comes to full blown vitality.
If we don't see a result in a few days we complain and go back to what we always did. We are comfortable there because we don't understand change, practise and repetition.
Behaviours and habits recorded in the subconscious mind will always win out unless we release them and create new powerful ones.
How fed up are you with feeling tired, listless and life free?
Remember the first step. Decide.
Then put your focus and action at it.
Then release all impatience and doubt, knowing that when you repeat the good stuff over and over with love and belief, your body/mind/soul will return to full power and vitality.
It simply depends on how much you want it.
The power for change lies inside each one of us.
Our nutrition is the fuel for our rockets of desire.
What fuel are you using?
Kirsten is writing an honest blog on her attempts to change the health of her gut/body/mind. This story will sound familiar I am sure. Huge thanks Kirsten for you honesty and bravery, I so much appreciate it.
The Trouble with Mondays
So when I first got in touch with Lilia and started reading her posts and articles, and watching her videos, that’s when I began to slowly make some little changes. I purchased coconut oil, and wrote a list of other bits and bobs I wanted to buy, such as oregano oil and probiotics. I pretty much stopped drinking alcohol (one day a week for me is pretty unheard of). I stopped eating bread. I swapped cow’s milk for almond milk. All the while telling myself “the health kick starts on Monday”.
Then Sunday came along, and what do you think I did? An emotional eater, I felt a bit sad and homesick, so obviously I gave in to cravings and convenience, and ate sandwiches, cereal, had a beer, and basically ate everything I shouldn’t have. I was literally standing at the cupboard shoving M&M’s in my mouth. But, hey, it’s ok, ‘cause it wasn’t Monday yet.
I woke up on Monday morning and started off well with probiotic yoghurt and coffee with almond milk and coconut oil for breakfast. After a day at work, however, I succumbed to the wine. A bottle and a half later I told myself that I would start again tomorrow, and so went for the quick and convenient option of a sandwich and a pot noodle to kill my wine munchies. A pot noodle. Which has approximately zero nutritional value.
The trouble with Monday, is that it sets you up to fail. I had already been making positive changes, and had I not set myself a start date, I probably would have been ok. So from now on, I’ll keep in mind that it’s not a race with a start and finish line, but a continual journey, and if I slip up, I’ll not stop and binge, but get back on track and keep going.
Lets get this straight.
When you realise you may have candida overgrowth it can be like opening a can of worms.
Now you know you have to cut things out. You hit google and find 3 million different ways to do this and they are all right. You want to feel great and be slim and toned but can you be arsed making the changes.
You will feel exhausted and this drags your thinking down, brings in resistance and can cause you to give up before you have begun.
Expect resistance, expect detox symptoms, expect to need support, but do it anyway, you will be SOOOOOO GLAD YOU DID!
There are many ways to heal. The Secret is to find a way that you can manage.
The only 2 things you need to cut out to start with is sugar and grains.
Wheat is in pretty much every jar and sauce you buy so beware of that.
What about dairy I get asked a lot. If you have leaky gut and if you are blood group O then dairy may irritate you and cause mucous. If you can get raw products then your body will be way more likely to be able to deal with it. But first things first.
If eating dairy initially makes it easier for you then simply make sure it's sugar free and full fat.. Remember the less man has processed it the better.
Keep the changes to the minimum, stop googling, eat any veggies and a few green apples too if it make is manageable for you. It is way better than giving up.
My friend Cathy Grout who healed hercellf naturally from non hodgkins lymphoma in 9 months said she looked for a protocol that she could manage. Some fasts and juice diets were too extreme and she knew she would not be able to keep it up, so she found an option she felt was doable.
Cathy had wanted treatment but her condition was "treated" by a protocol called "watch and wait".
Wait for what she asked? I cant sit around and do nothing! So she researched and healed. Her book is here if you want to read her honest, down to Earth inspiring story.
Find a way to make the doable.
Then for 3 weeks discipline yourcellf until your energy breaks through and you can truly feel yourcellf healing. Then you are on a roll to keep on this path to vitality and disease prevention.
There are many ways to deal with this. Choose one.
Cut out sugars and grains with gluten.
Get organised. Make big pots of soups and stews and have boiled eggs, humous and carrot sticks in your bag.
Drink tons of herbal and green tea and water.
Use EFT to communicate to the body that it need to heal.
Release all impatience, stress, anxiety and wishing it was different.
Most of all allow yourcellf to enjoy this process and journey back to optimum health and happiness.

Here's to your health and happiness
Does your morning spit do any of these? Do you have a Candida overgrowth?
So my candida awareness campaign goes on.
As I have said many times before, nutrition and dietary changes appear to be almost impossible for most of us. This is why there is such resistance to it.
We do not like change, we do not undestand why.
Your subconscious mind has recorded everything you have ever done. It also has some inherited stuff in there too.
Your conscious mind knows you have to make a change, but your subconscious rules your life.
Refined sugar and carbs are drugs, they are addictive and we have strong emotional ties to them.
This is why the mind techniques are critical to your success.
You must release all that outdated, harmful info out of your cells.
So you tell me you are tired, have digestive issues and feel a bit emotional?
I look at your history and see anti biotics in there along with a diet full of sugar and refined carbs.
The anti biotics have damaged the gut and the sugar is now feeding the problem.
Your cravings are coming from the fungus, not from low willpower and stupidity.
There is no pill to fix that.
Yes it would be fantastic if there was! I would love it too. You can eat, drink and think whatever you want then you go to the doctor and they give you a pill to fix it.
That would be totally awesome.
But even the most skeptical, closed minded, desperate person must see that it is us that need to take action, not the Doc?
Candida is a massive problem in our culture and is making us very, very sick and tired.
If it goes undetected and treated it can cause huge problems in decades to come.
You must see the disease around you and the enormous amount of our friends and family getting "diagnosed".
Time to take action. Stop being a patient and become a person.
One who is proactive. One who is not sitting back complaining hoping it will all fix itself.
Get your juicer out, take the body of vibrating cells out into Nature, use an emotional release technique from youtube for free and take you power back.
Yes its a pain, you have to take the action, sorry there is no other way that we know right now.
You do not need a degree, a phd or even an ograde to do this.
Look at your food. Is it the way Mother Nature gave it to you? Or has man processed it, flavoured it, chemicalised it, coloured it, totally restructured it so that the body does not recognise it, sweetened it?
Simple. Eat the food that has just come out the garden or farm. Eat local. Eat lots of raw. Up your nuts and seeds, beans and legumes.
Only you can do it, dont wait. Dont wait for a diagnosis.
Lets take our health and vitality back now.
