I started a juice feast this week. Two days ago to be exact. Today is day 3. I want to make sure I document this experience because my goal is to do this for 21 days. I have done 3 day, 10 day and two other 21 day fasts on a Daniel diet not juicing. It’s only day 3 and I keep having this feeling like oh my gosh I don’t know if I will be able to do this. I have to say though that drinking 4 32 ounce juices has helped tremendously to keep me from feeling like I am going to pass out which is what happened on my two 3 day water/almost all water fast. On one of those water fasts I did only chicken broth and the other I did only stomach herbs 3x a day. Both of which I got up on the 3rd day very early in the AM feeling like I was going to pass out. I have had hypoglycemia most of life but since I usually eat pretty regularly and don’t allow my blood sugar to drop I don’t ever notice it really.
I am doing this juice feast for a few reasons. The first is because I have been addressing some very serious health problems for quite a few years and while I feel like and even the labs show that I have come a long way baby I want ALL the symptoms go to away especially the swollen glands in my neck when I eat grains or just too much food. I also was recently diagnosed with gum disease and I wanted complete healing from that which I am already making great progress in because of not eating any refined sugar at all, not that I really ate that much before but I used to take a supplement that while helped me with many things it still had a little evaporated cane juice in it which is sugar. I also very much want to have babies with my new husband of 2 years now, our anniversary is coming up May 5, 2014. I want to let my digestive system rest and I just want to be in tip top shape to have babies. Carrying them is one thing which I know could present its own challenges but taking care of babies will be the greatest challenge. I want twin girls. I know a bit specific and coming from a family of mostly all boys, I feel crazy to say that since I hear girls are so much more difficult to raise.
Today I had headaches a bit because I had a doctors appointment and started drinking later than recommended. I am following as much as I can what I learned from the www.juicefeast.com website. David Rainosheck has a ton of very helpful information on his site and I am going through the 92 day program even though my commitment is only to 21 days, I figure I may want to do this in the future and I want to learn all I can about juicing, nutrition, and health.
My plan is to also document this on video so anyone interested can watch whatever transformation may happen. One other thing I am addressing during this time is forgiveness. It has been coming into my mind, email, and other ways of communication that it is time to forgive at a deeper level. I thought I had already forgiven so many people from my past that had hurt me. I did the best with what I had at that time but it is time to go deeper. I usually really don’t like doing that kind of work unless I am totally focused. I have a lot going right now with working on my website, writing another book, doing IVF treatments, and all the healing tools like fertility massage, castor oil packs, and yoga, its a lot. I am also walking anywhere from 1-3 miles at least every other day, but its been pretty much every day so doing all this forgiveness work is that much more. I felt ready though because before I started it yesterday I could feel the emotion just below the surface and was ready to cry any time I thought about the questions and people who I knew I had to address. I am documenting my journey in a few journals and will share when ready if appropriate for the public.
So for now I am addressing:
1. Juicing for health and wellness
2. Cleansing for fertility
4. Creativity, blogging and writing for health and service
5. Physical strength, yoga, walking, and rebounding
Do you have a healthy story you’d like to share, I’d love to hear it!
