Today I have been quite high. I am no longer spacey, simply energized and acutely aware of every smell, touch, sound – everything around me.. The 3rd day has been the easiest and I do feel very satisfied with myself. I have to say, however, that I miss the social act of eating. Sitting down for a meal is a time to talk and share and appreciate food with the people you love. I miss that. I miss my dinner with my wonderful husband. Poor thing, he has been eating soup for supper with me for three days out of solidarity, what a trooper. That is love for ya.
I have, on the other hand, realized that I need to appreciate what I eat far more and noted that I don’t really need to eat that much at all in order to thrive.
I have sudden burst of energy and felt very calm and still within. My friends have asked if I have had diarrhea, but you know what? I have actually had a very regular and solid bowl movement every day (especially today). I feel very cleansed, I wonder how on earth anything can come out of me after only ingesting juice for the past three days. The fact that something does come out goes to show that we all can benefit from a cleanse and an opportunity for our tummies to catch up.
Poor ole’ tummy of ours. We give everything around us a break, the weekend is technically our break, we make time to go on a break, we make time to relax – we should also give our digestive system a break. Did you know that 60% of our body’s immune system is based in our gut? It is pivotal to keep your digestive system healthy. In our gut we have trillions of bacteria, some are “good” some are “bad”. They live together in a pleasant manner when there is “bacterial balance” in your body. What upsets the bacterial balance? Factors such as stress (the number on enemy of all health), poor diet, antibiotics or illness. Taking probiotics, which are “good” bacteria, helps keep the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. I have always taken probiotics at random moments of my life. I now feel far more convinced that I could use more balance in my belly and perhaps juice once in a while – especially after a night out, plenty of delicious wine or cocktails … anything that is yummy and can affect your tummy.
We all can do more for our gut (I just spelt gut – git – it was hilarious – had to share – “We all can do more for our “git” – ha ha yes we can) . Lets face it, we stress far too much. Your stomach is the first place to feel it – so take care of it please.
Now I am lecturing and giggling about “git”…oh the things a juice can do….. I shall step down from my pedestal upon which I preach and go drink my juice….
Lets see how I awake tomorrow…. I had a dream I awoke multi-coloured (the colours of all my juices). I didn’t. Thank the Lord.
