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!
