Day 3 – 4 of Fasting

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog

It is done, I feel wonderful and it went so well!!

Day 3 went surprisingly well even after my huge liver cleanse of the night before. I have been fasting and cleansing for the past 20 years so all what it entails is usually no surprise to me.
Anyone that knows me, also knows how I love to try new things. Although I was a bit fearful to take on this new liver cleanse, I did it without hesitation. Can you imagine tossing down 250 ml of olive oil and grape fruit juice? Yeah, it was challenging, but luckily for me I knew how important it was to hold my nose when doing it so I didn’t really have to taste it. The thickness of the oil was plenty!!

Of course it didn’t end just there. There is an entire protocol to follow but in all honesty, I think a few days of cleansing to rid the liver and gallbladder of all it’s toxins and stones is well worth it!


This is a great picture which actually gives you an idea of how the stones circulate in the liver and gallbladder. It can be quite painful if there are some big stones but when following protocol and with the support of a natural health practitioner, you will be fine.

During the fast, it is always a great idea to receive some cleansing therapies. Massages, lymphatic drainage and colonics are at the top of that list. Usually I get at lease two colonics. This time, because my fast was shorter and following the detailed steps in the cleanse, I really did not need a colonic in the middle of my fast. I did however get a colonic before reintroducing food into my diet and another colonic one week after the fast/cleanse was done.

Day 4 was my last day and when I reintroduced food into my daily diet. I can honestly say I was in no big hurry to start eating again. I was still probably full from all that oil from the two previous nights. Upon waking, I was able to rid myself of more stones and prepare for my day. I decided not to work out the morning because I was feeling a bit more tired. I prepared more ” special lemonade”, had my colonic and started eating some red grapes around 2 pm. From there my digestive system started working wonderfully well once again and I felt rested, calm and grateful that it was done!!


Even after 20 years of fasting/cleanses, this is what you read one of the things you read your body. I think fasting/cleansing is a wonderful way to keep your entire body healthy and your mind clear. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that is not severely sick, pregnant or breast-feeding. Do make sure that you have the support of a natural health care provider to assist you in this. Although the protocol is easy enough to do on your own, you want to maximize this time to get as much as you can out of it and a coach will help you do that. As for this new liver cleanse, I think I will keep it but I will tweak it!
