My Cleanse Adventure …The End

It has been 3 weeks since I started this Cleanse Adventure. Once I found a cleanse I thought was right for me, I followed the direction, eliminating dairy, meats and caffeine from my diet for 3 days. I followed that with another 5 days where I stopped eating all together. My diet for those days […]

My Cleanse Adventure / Part I

I keep hearing about these cleanses – how they’re good for you and how they have helped people with all sorts of issues – from losing weight, to curing cancer! When I hear “cleanse”, I picture some new-age spa where a woman in a white lab coat leads me into a room decorated with pictures […]

My Cleanse Adventure / Part II

As it turns out, most cleanses are designed to just clean out the intestinal tract and colon.  I guess I thought a cleanse was something that would clean out my entire body – like a lasagna, margarita and nicotine exorcism.   There are  total body cleanses but these are much more involved than I think I’m […]

My cleanse adventure part III

After a lot of research, I found a cleanse I’m ready to try. It’s from a company called Blessed Herbs. The funny thing is that I didn’t find this one on-line. Blessed Herbs never came up in any of my Google searches. This cleanse was recommended to me by a few friends who had actually […]

My cleanse adventure part V – first day fasting

Here are my notes for the day… 6:00 am My first “juice” (a blend of apple juice and about 3 tablespoons of the Blessed Herbs powder) went down without a hitch. It sort of tastes like talcum powder mixed with apple juice – yum!  I don’t feel hungry but my energy is noticeably low. 10:00 […]

My cleanse adventure part VI

Here are notes from my 2nd day of fasting… 6am I slept pretty good last night; no dreams of 12oz steaks or chocolate milkshakes (although that seems to be on my mind right now). Off to work! 11am I was feeling good so far until I walked past the diner where I get my usual […]

My Cleanse Adventure / Part VII

Here are my notes from the 3rd day of fasting… Last night I got the most restful 8 hours of sleep I can remember. So restful that I slept through my alarm and had to call in late. When I woke up I felt pretty good but by 9am I was disoriented and moving slowly. […]

My Cleanse Adventure / Part VIII

It’s been 4 days since I’ve eaten solid food. Here are my latest notes… Another good night’s sleep last night.  It is amazing how much the body can rest when there’s no solid food to break down.  Today I feel completely fine.  There’s no hunger, no agitation, and my energy is good. 9:00 am I […]
