January 2014 Cleanse – Day 1

So I ate crap yesterday. Actually, I ate sort of crappy the last two days. This is in part why I felt rough this morning when I woke up. It is really not a good idea to eat a TON of food or to eat in an unhealthy manner ever, but certainly not the day before embarking on a fast. However, I think I was on too much hydrocortisone again and not only had a ravenous appetite, but was craving sweets. When my hunger hits the intensity it hit yesterday, or when I have uncontrollable sweet cravings, I usually know that something is up. It can be die off from adding a new anti-microbial, the full moon (parasites are more active), sex hormone imbalance, or in this case, too much hydrocortisone. I reduced my dose yesterday, and today, and my hunger is back to what it normally is.

Symptoms AM:

  • Swollen eye lids/small eyes
  • Puffy face/enlarged pores
  • Mild fatigue
  • Fluid retention (from eating crap yesterday!)
  • Significant abdominal distention

Symptoms Throughout Day:

  • Symptoms from morning continued except for mild improvement in swollen eye lids
  • Mildly coated tongue (yup, happens that fast for me)
  • Mild headache
  • Mild sweaty smell
  • Vacillating between mild anxiety and eerily cheerful/funky mood
  • Mild bad breath (I hate this one the most)
  • Feeling slightly cold starting late afternoon

Detox Support:

  • Coffee enema
  • Castor oil mixed with essential oils (clary sage, frankincense, myrrh, peppermint, lavender) applied to abdomen and liver/gallbladder area while taking a bath with Epsom salt
  • Zeolite
  • Charcoal
  • Well Belly applied to abdomen after bath, and to abdomen and bottom of feet at bedtime

Liquids Consumed:

  • Organic coffee* blended with coconut oil**
  • Filtered water (we have a whole house water filter for crud and fluoride)
  • Filtered water with electrolytes, micro minerals, and borax
  • Clear vegetable broth (from organic broccoli)
  • MISO soup (water and Miso Master miso)

*It is NOT recommended to consume caffeine while fasting/cleansing, but it seems to work for me.

**I can’t really call this a fast since I am consuming coconut oil. However, I have done coconut oil cleanses before and have had great results/benefits. Adding in a little coconut oil felt right. Tomorrow may be a different story.
