Day 8 of my 21 day fast
February 9, 2009
Hiya Emerald Queen,
Today is day 8 and FINALLY I feel great! Hubba Hubby and I had the most chillaxin’ weekend. We hiked with our friend Julia. Lady Julia has diamonds on the inside. She’s a supplement expert, yogi and genuine rainbow warrior. You’re gonna love her! Julia will be sharing her vast knowledge with ya in a few weeks. You seekers have lots of questions about supplements. Good lord – do I hear ya. It’s hard to know what’s best. Not for long!
Speaking of supplements, in a few hours I’ll be getting the test to determine the hydrochloric acid levels in my stomach. For some time now food just doesn’t sit well. Burps and other air packets bug me. My energy is low and stuff isn’t digesting.
Dot connecting time! The procedure is called The Heidelberg Test. My naturopath will drop a pH tester capsule down my gullet, check my levels and then yank it out. I’m so excited! For, real, no sarcasm. My glorious inners are down right cool. Getting to know them better is a joy. How else can you change what doesn’t work?
When it’s over, I head back to the clinic (not Tree of Life) for my vitamin C IV and a colonic. Besides the endless needles, the tick-tock-snail-passing time is tough. 4-6 hours per day gets a bit trying. But hey, I’m on a mission so SUCK IT UP… or sneak in your laptop.
Not sure if I mentioned some of this stuff already (you can always hear it twice), but I have a few more tips for fasting. Beside the 1/2 tsp of sea salt 2-3 times per day in water to keep your electrolytes in balance, ENZYMES are crutial. Without them you’ll feel like garbage. The juice makes a gas super disco. I take 2 with every juice. I also take probiotics twice a day – morning and night.
The Enzymes I like are made by Theramedix. You can also explore Digest Gold from Enzymedica, or the HHI HiZymes (from the Hippocrates Health Institute)
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics 12 Plus – is a great probiotic! So is the Udo’s brand and Garden of Life. In that order.
While on the fast I’m also taking chlorella, spirulina, and Marine Phyoplankton.
To move the bowels look into Natural Calm, Colon Max or even a Cal/Mag citrate supplement. You may not need any help but if you do, it’s out there, for a limited time. Aloe too! AND colonics! For those of you suffering from constipation on a regular basis my advice is pretty simple. Cut dairy, wheat, gluten and start practicing proper food combining!
Just like life, variety is the spice that makes us sing. So switch your recipes up to avoid mind-bending boredom! I’ve been adding tomato and basil at night with my sea salt. Yum. I imagine sipping gaspacho in the mediterranean while wearing a tube top.
That’s it for now. If you’re up to it, join me this Wednesday for the Goddess Group.
Hope you have the best day ever!
Peace and pH,
PS. Tomorrow you’ll hear some wisdom from one of our Blog Posse gals Natalia Rose… Can’t wait!
