THE CLEANSE PART II
Sorry forgot to post this on Monday before I left for my trip…..I went in for my second colon cleanse a six days ago and I feel great. This time we didn’t do an ionic foot bath, Mrs. W had me lay on a table that had a whole body message with infared lights. I laid there for about 30 minutes and got a message that stops periodically at certain pressure points and was able to really relax. The message is supposed to help relax your body before you get the cleanse. It worked, I was relaxed and ready to “take it”. This time after the cleanse when I went to the bathroom, I did release quite a bit of water. It was a very strange feeling but I got the water out and was on my way. This time Mrs. W sent me with the half gallon of ionized water since I was going to be traveling and couldn’t take me water with me. She told me to be sure and take my probiotic supplements and to call her if I had any side effects. She explained that as you get more cleanse, your body might resist and therefore you can feel kind of icky for a day or two. I made an appointment for my third cleanse for 9 days later and walked out the door. My husband was waiting for me as I walked outside. I climbed in and we started the drive to the natural grocer. We talked about what he had done while I was in my appointment and what we were going to get at the grocery store but not once did he ask how my appointment went. I continue to be shocked that he isn’t at all curious as to what goes on at all my appointments. I mean, he has to be curious doesn’t he? Whether it is acupuncture, OBGYN or colon cleansing appointments he has to be curious. I let it go, guessing he didn’t want to get into how the cleaning of my colon had gone and we talked about my upcoming business trip and his golf tee time he had the next day. When we got to the store I was sure to take in my new list of items Mrs. W had told me to get. Nutritional yeast was first on my list. I went to the bins where most of the grains were and spotted it. There wasn’t much left in the bin so I couldn’t really scoop some that the color hadn’t been changed from being exposed by light in the store but I got about 2 cups worth. I was sure to get flaxseed oil to mix with olive oil for salad dressing, my probiotic pills in the organge box and I got about 3 cups of long grain brown rice. I picked up a few vegetables and we were on our way. When we got home, I noticed that I was getting a headache so I put the groceries away and went up to lay down. I ended up staying in be the rest of the night. I didn’t feel awful, just a headache and felt kind of tired. When I woke up the next day I felt fine and was glad that I the side effects from the cleanse didn’t seem to be spilling over into my Sunday. My husband went to his golf lesson and I hung out at home cleaning and packing for my business trip. I went to lunch with my Mom and went shopping but was sure to get back in time to start cooking dinner. I wanted to use some of my new groceries Mrs. W had suggested. I am excited to tell you that the nutritional yeast does taste a bit like cheese and when mixed with the brown rice or put on top of a baked potatoes it is really good! I even took a bit with me on my trip. The flaxseed oil mixed with olive oil is really good. Flax is really good for protein and is also said to help restore healthy estrogen levels in the body. I feel like drinking the stuff..the more estrogen the better. I try and sprinkle it on everything I eat now. It has been a few days since my last cleanse now and for the past two days, I have had lots of thin, clear CM. Today there was a lot and it makes me kind of worry because I am in a different state traveling and I hope my hubby and I are not missing our first shot in 5 months to make a baby! I hope this happens next month too. It is probably god making sure my body is ready before the baby starts growing inside me.
