This is Day 2 of the Master Cleanse for me. Day 1 was hard. I honestly wanted to quit because I was not able to function mentally up to any type of normal standard to be productive. Serious brain fog, headaches and body aches till I finally went to sleep.
That being said, this morning I woke up feeling great! At 4:30 a.m.! Went to sleep at 8:30, so that’s a solid 8 hours.
Day 2 is starting off better than Day 1. I put the correct amount of salt in my warm water – 2 tsp. Then, instead of sipping it for 30 minutes, I stood at the sink, closed my eyes, and chugged all 24 ounces down in about 5 minutes.
The tummy gurgles have started, which is a good sign.
Since fiber is what causes our bodies to expel waste, and when you’re doing the cleanse you’re not in-taking any fiber, the salt water flush helps with the expulsion. And it is optional. There is a laxative tea in the evening that is also optionsl too and that I’ve opted not to do. When I did this cleanse before I didn’t do the flush. I don’t think I knew about it actually before… But it makes sense to me now so that’s why I’m doing it.
At the end of the day I did do some journalling, nothing really deep came out, just a lot of complaining : ) It’s interesting to observe how my mind and body are so connected. When my body aches and whinges, so does my mind.
It was also interesting that Day 1 of the cleanse aligned with the healing session that my Energy Scan Certification Program had scheduled. So I was able to get some healing and clearing. Not sure if that added to the aches or helped with them…
Either way, I am feeling better today. I hope I made it through the hardest day. I’m excited at how good I’m feeling this morning and I’m looking forward to feeling even more clarity, cleanliness, and calm on Day 3!
As a little reminder to myself and to anyone reading, this is why cleansing is beneficial:
“Doing the master Cleanse will not only make you healthier, it will also lead to increases in energy levels, make you more able to get rid of bad habits, cleanse the body of harmful toxins, and promote weight loss through the increased energy levels and smoother, stronger metabolism rate that will accompany it. Truly, a detoxification diet essentially enables a person and their body a fresh, new start.”
