Fasting detox cleansing for 10 days completely clean and fresh and drinking from your water cooler Calamvale
Fasting, my detox cleansing. I had already written several messages about my fast, but unfortunately these are no longer due to a server failure. I try to do a cleaning once a year so that I feel fresh and clean again.
In the previous years I did the lemon juice cure several times. That is also a fast to detox, but especially with lemon and maple syrup.
I bought a book "All about fasting", written by the doctor, naturopathy and manual medicine Hans van Waning. Through his years of guidance of people during fasting and cleaning, he has gained a lot of practical experience and you can read that in his book with valuable background information.
After reading this book I was convinced and started doing his 10 day cleaning with my girlfriend. Children and drinking water.
The 10 day cleaning
Consists of a tapering day in which you can still eat but then less and no things such as coffee, alcohol, sharp food, etc. Then there are 6 days of just tea and drinking at least 2 liters of water, nothing else. As usual, it is quite heavy the first 2 days, because then your body is still digesting. But from the third day onwards, I had no real hunger at all and no food cravings.
My body is then only busy with the removal of waste products and it seems that then psychologically the urge for food disappears. However, I had to do everything slowly and calmly because I had little energy left and put on warm clothes. After all, there is also less energy for the heat. But I was not disappointed.
The herbal tea:
The tea you drink has been chosen with care so that a different part of your body is cleaned every day.
Day 1 detox cleansing
The transition day, less food, no alcohol, sharp food end. Such a first day is not too bad, I am looking forward to it. I know from previous cleanings that I will get tired and slow and sometimes dizzy. Still eaten a regular evening meal, although it was a lot less than usual.
I went to bed early and already drank a lot of water from my water cooler Calamvale.
Day 2 detox cleansing
From this day on it is only herbal tea and water, no more (solid) food. And drink lots of tea and take it easy, the first days are hardest because my body is in a transition phase. From eating to no longer eating and detoxing.
Today, the emphasis of cleansing is on detoxifying the liver. One of the functions of the liver is to filter harmful toxins from your blood. And plays a major role in our hormone balance. The body starts to clean itself if no food comes in for some time. I also support this by drinking at least two liters of water a day and special tea, which supports the liver in detoxifying.
How do I feel
Have a little headache and I'm slow, can't focus properly. I don't have a hunger pang. And I feel the rash on my teeth and tongue, my body has started detoxing.
Day 3 detox cleansing
More and more waste products now end up in the blood because the organs deliver them to the blood. Cleansing also strengthens the self-healing ability of the body and thus the body is better able to fight against undesirable things.
How do I feel
This morning got up heavily but slept quite well. For much of the day I feel like something heavy is pressing on my shoulders. That feeling diminished during the morning.
For the first time I am also going to do intestinal flushes. I have done this before but then outside the house. Colon hydrotherapy.
A bowel irrigation, also called "Colon hydrotherapy" is a simple and fast way to get rid of waste products from your intestines. Waste accumulates in your intestines and can cause many complaints, both physically and mentally.
bowel irrigation cleansing detox fasting
I have heard that 70% of diseases come from the gut. I ordered a set online for a bowel irrigation. A 2 liter bag with tube and cannula with tap to insert into the anus.
By filling the large intestine with, in my case, purified water, the stuck, caked waste products are removed from the folds of the intestine. As a result, fewer toxins enter the bloodstream, so that the liver, kidneys, skin and lungs can better discharge their waste products. Another part is that by removing or reducing this caked layer you can better absorb nutrients from your diet. This is one of the greatest problems facing Western people. They do get enough nutrients in themselves, but they simply cannot absorb it enough due to this caked layer.
You have to be careful about this and wouldn't just do this for a few reasons.
yes intestinal flora is affected and some of the good bacteria wash away, I have overcome this by using probiotics and kefir after cleaning, which restore this balance
the body is not accustomed and built to get materials through the anus, danger of damage and the introduction of unwanted bacteria, I have overcome this by doing everything very quietly and carefully and cleaning the cannula to every intestinal lavage with alcohol
consult a doctor or someone who has an understanding of intestinal irrigation to guide you or try it outside the house first, to experience it.
The first time I was able to bring in 2 liters of water in 2 times and hold it in my intestines for a while, the first time this went fine but the second time it came out almost immediately. After that I had a tidy feeling.
Day 4 detox cleansing
I have now completely switched to cleaning and I think almost no food is digested anymore, so all energy is used by my body to clean. Besides drinking tea and water and the above-mentioned intestinal irrigation, I do even more. I take alternating showers from cold to warm to stimulate circulation and I scrub myself in advance with a dry hard towel, because you lose a lot of waste products through the skin and so you can remove them together with the dead dander.
How do I feel
I slept late this morning and went to bed late yesterday, against the rules of lots of rest, but I slept well. I listened to a guided meditation through the headphones and it was very pleasant. I feel good and clear but have to move slowly or I will get dizzy.
Once again done a bowel wash, only brown water with occasional hard bits. We went for an hour of hiking outside, in the fresh air. Did me well but I had had it after an hour.
Day 5, 6 and 7 detox cleansing
Not very special, you start to get used to it and it becomes my daily way of life, without food and all but tea and water. I read in the book "All about fasting" that sometimes old emotions can come out, things that have not yet been completed, and that is correct. On day 6 I had a heavy afternoon, because old pain came up in a unexpected way.
It is too personal to say that here. But suddenly I was in the middle of it, I have lived through it and still managed to end the day peacefully by realizing that this has been and I have to learn from what it has brought me. I also immediately performed several actions to apply this in practice. These old emotions were not pleasant but I am glad it happened, I feel more tidy now.
Day 8 detox cleansing
I can eat again, even though I don't need it. Breaking the fast is called this, from cleaning to digesting and excreting. All kinds of juices have to be made in the body again for the digestion to run smoothly. A total of about 1.5 liters of saliva, 2.5 liters of gastric juice and the liver makes a liter of bile and the pancreas 3/4 liters of abdominal saliva and finally the intestines add 3 liters of intestinal fluid. that is a total of 9 liters on a day, the majority of which can be reused. That is a large amount and the organs have to work hard for it because every day to make it again.
There are some general rules:
hew well, at least 30 times with each bite, so that your saliva mixes well with the food, saliva provides the first step in the digestion.
minimal or no table salt or only healthy salt, so no flavor enhancers such as E621
drink at least 2 liters of purified water from your water cooler Calamvale a day, I filter my tap water, so that I get pure and healthy drinking water.
After the three cups of tea and water in the morning it was time, I was allowed to eat an apple, chew delicious weather and a real taste in my mouth, I have just not eaten the seeds but for the rest I have everything with great attention and chewing in. In the afternoon again tea and water and then a vegetable soup. Organic vegetables in water without broth or salt, but it tasted fine despite that.
Day 9 and 10 detox cleansing
Furthermore, slowly moving from not eating to eating again, increasingly solid foods such as crackers, cottage cheese and yogurt. Many fresh organic vegetables, fruits and herbs. The food was quite heavy for me, everything gets going again and suddenly the urge to eat increases again. Because I have lost about 7 kilos, it seems that the body wants to catch up and eat as much food as possible. My digestion is working again, I have to go to the toilet again for the big message, closely yes big.
