Day 4: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox

Day 4: I have to say that I am pretty proud of myself. I am staying on course and I am looking forward to this weekend because I have made plans to get down and serious with my goals and my objectives. I have a great feeling that this cleanse runs much deeper than just physical.

Speaking of which, after drinking two cups of the herbal laxative blend, constipation was no more! Unfortunately the issue cleared up during my very much needed night-time sleep. However, I do feel so much better and plan on staying on track with proper bowel movements. As for the clay itself, I have started to add a bit back to my regime. I was using 5 ml, which was clearly too much. I brought it down to 2.5 ml 3 times a day and still it seemed to be too much. I am now going for an even smaller amount. I will also let the 5 ml settle. I love the extra energy the clay is bringing, but proper bowel movements are a must especially during a cleanse.

The other great observation I have made is regarding stress. It is absent from my life. I feel I have as much energy as I usually do, however I have taken on less and I am not following an exercise program. Also, I am getting to bed around 9 pm and getting up at 6h30 am. These things are very different from my regular lifestyle. I usually exercise every day, am also on the go and get to bed around 11 pm. I want to make sure I can go for the long haul with this cleanse, so I am putting all my chances on my side and staying quiet. As far as stress level goes, I feel calmer than I have in a very long time. Even this spring, during my fast/detox, I was not this calm. I love the feeling of stillness, faith and living in the moment. It may be because I truly wanted to take this cleanse on, along with everything that comes with a cleanse.

So I can honestly say that today is a good day. I was able to work all day long in the clinic offering different health therapies and even coaching. I was calm, focused and so very happy!
