FULL BLOWN FLU SYMPTOMS= MASSIVE DETOX
Well last night was rough.
The hunger and cravings are zero issue here, it is the symptoms.
I felt great yesterday morning, had such a good sleep. My sleep has been much lighter and broken this entire fast.
It has not been a problem except at the weekend I was up at 4.30 2 days in a row so by night time I was tired, ready for bed but not really feeling I was getting 100% rejuvinated.
I have had a bit of a cold since I started and on monday at the Retreat it was a pain as it affected my breathing when I was doing the Ashtanga yoga. During Ashtanga you breathe deeply in and out through the nose, and I could not do this, it was like having some sponge inside my head that was full of water. There was no pain though, just annoying and a runny nose.
I know it will heal and go but I am a bit impatient! Would like to feel amazing now, and this is taking the edge off,
Yesterday I drove to Glasgow then sat in a course for 3 hours, it was brilliant but not sure sitting in a room full of people at this stage of the detox was the smartest idea anyway.
Then I went to the hospital to visit my friend and got infuriated and incredulous at the lack of real health that is in our hospitals, had to release on that. But putting someone in a room and drugging them up is not my idea of helping someone to heal.
All in all by the time I got home I felt I was getting full blown flu.
My neck and back were aching, my head the sorest it has been for years, I came and lay on the bed and to make matters even worse I had to get up to the toilet about 3 times during this crisis, to pee. Dam water and juice!
So I wake up this morning at 5.45. That's ok its the before 5 stuff that I object to. Part of my healing plan is quality sleep. If we sleep between 10 and 2pm we engage the most powerful time for healing, the hormones flood in and rejuvinate and replenish us, So I am definitely ticking that box.
It's a great idea to go to bed early when you are detoxing as you need the sleep and it keeps you away from food.
There is always controversy over broccoli. Raw broccoli does not work for everyone, it is a cruciferous veg and often we cannot digest them easily, plus they are high in sulphur. My other friend had bloating after her juice yesterday and then so did I so today we are leaving the brocolli out.
Because it is green I always want to put it in, and its in the shops, but its out for rest of fast.
Today I woke up completely fine. It's mental. My sinuses are still blocked and cleansing but all the pain has gone.
The one good thing about a sore head is it takes the focus away from eating.
I have had a leaky gut. Your gut is directly attached to your head. If you have allergy symptoms in your head, eyes, nose, throat then there is a good chance the problem is in your gut.
So I knew that the process of healing could be harder detox wise than for those who do not have this.
There is or was a fungus in there that when it breaks down will make you feel crap on the way out.There are 2 ways you can do this
1. You can do it fast with more discomfort or
2. Slow with less.discomfort
I chose option A.
I actually find that no eating is less hassle than trying to cut certain things out, especially when you are not living in your own house. You do not have to think, you do not have to explain, you just carry your bag of veg around, tell everyone you are juicing and you get no hassle.
So lets see what today brings. Feeling happier, lighter and excited to see how the body responds to the tons of easy to digest nutrition it gets in this week.
Here is to your health and happiness.
