Picture Juicing: Get your 5 a day in a glass We are what we eat!

We are truly what we eat so I decided to do a detox diet. It’s been a stressful few years which do seem to be getting better but I am aware that my sinuses grumble now and then plus a few other little health things which have drawn my attention such as skin breakout. Also the liver, which is a major organ with huge responsibilities can easily get congested just by stress without adding outside pollutants such as the water we drink, the pollution in the air etc. We are all exposed to this even if we are not aware of it, so we should all detox periodically.

Our diet tends to be pretty good as my partner and I eat plenty of fruit & veg each day, drink lots of water and don’t eat too much processed food. We rarely drink fizzy drinks such as coke and we don’t eat much in the way of junk food or takeaways. We mostly eat meals cooked from scratch using plenty of fruit, veg and lean meat like chicken. I rarely drink tea or coffee, probably not even once per week on average but most weeks none. I do drink green tea though which is good for detoxifying.

I am a big believer in trying to do whatever I can to raise my vibration as it really makes a difference to my spiritual work and for any of you out there who work with energy or the spiritual you will understand where I am coming from.

So I started out with juicing which felt really good, I then introduced the milk thistle liquid to help cleanse the liver and digestive system. I then cut out crisps which are my weak spot, replaced shop bread with pumpernickel & rye bread, stopped eating any items including gluten as the body is not supposed to digest those elements. I also cut out dairy as this is renowned for causing sinus issues as again the human body is not designed to consume milk after childhood plus it is also known to make the body create mucus & irritate the sinuses.

So after a week of this detoxing, I have less energy than usual, my skin does not seem to be getting any better, and I can’t say that any of my other symptoms are clearing up so I think it’s time to stop the detox. So my question here is have you tried a detox plan? How did it go? Do you think your body needs a detox? I’d be interested in your thoughts.
