Im thinking this time it's gonna be a tough liver detox.
Medical school. Two little kids. Two businesses. Wife recently had ankle surgery. Phew.
Detoxing is basically setting your mind to it. Once you do that, it's not too bad. I have pretty much done that bit but it is still quite a bit of work.
If any of you want to join me on this journey - by all means - dive in. Ill give you support and pointers along the way :)
Bed: 1230am after a night of goodbyes to my Russian inlaws - so quite a bit of vodka :)
Rise: 9am exhausted and late for my Sunday lecture - Public Health.
Breakfast: BioCleanse Medical Food Powder and Whey Protein shake, and a glass of water.
Lunch: homemade barley mushroom soup with steamed veggies and the same shake above.
Dinner: steamed asparagus, tomatoe and black beans and a tossed salad & same shake above.
Snacks: rice cake plain
Urges: to eat sugar were kinda there but not so bad. The urge was due to fatigue most likely and wanting someting with high caloric density.
Skin: today - way too early yet. Figure about day 14 and stuff may begin to appear.
Unusual occurences: ummm - well. I had to pee like every 30 minutes - a ton. Very odd. First time for me - it must be the BioCleanse really flushing out the stuff. Ill have to look at the ingredients again.
Mood: not too bad. just tired.
Dietary restrictions: no sugar, no processed foods, no red meat, no poultry, no dairy, no wheat. This list will get longer as I go.
Dietary emphasis: vegetables, fruits, whole grain foods, cold water wild fish [seldom], steamed vegetables, brown rice, seaweeds, protein powder [to maintain body mass] This list will get shorter as I go.
Elimination: just peed a lot - i mean a lot. I'll likely do an enema tomorrow. I used to weird out about these but they are very effective and not so bad. If you're cringing at the idea - well - give it a shot. I guess with me a med student and performing full colonics on patients, a simple enema bag is pretty damn easy. Side note: Im not such a fan of pressurized colonics. That's another topic but gravity fed is enough - dont need to blast your insides.
Ill start on the heavy metals in a few days. At the moment I'm eliminating what is circulating in my blood and limiting my toxic burden. It is not wise to go full bore right away as a huge headache will ensue and the body will be overwhelmed. One step at a time.
What to expect is the first few days being tough, then getting used to the routine. Then feeling great as you've made your digestive system go on vacation and your liver start going nuts in detoxing. After about a week, expect to feel like shit as heavy metals, solvents, pesticides, etc begin to come out of storage from fat cells and into your blood. Then it is a good time to tank up on antioxidants, liver phase 1 and 2 detoxification support and drink a ton of water.
I used BioCleanse before years ago on my first detox protocol. It was an incredible result. That is actually how I began to work for the company - yep - handy working for Biogenesis Nutraceuticals.
And once again: If any of you want to join me on this journey - by all means - dive in. Ill give you support and pointers along the way :) See - I want some support here folks!
