Hi All, I have been in Spain on a detox week last week which was an amazing experience. It included the following: juices with bentonite clay and psyllium husks apple cider vinegar and honey in hot water vegetable broths coffee, herbal and garlic enemas twice daily yoga in the mornings - i struggled with this and only went twice Chi Gong - a great form of exercise stretching etc - went daily for 30mins, relaxed my mind and gave me more energy evening talks on nutrition, health, toxins etc Evening meditation - optional A group of special therapists - rolfing, reflexology, acupuncture, healing, massage, emotional journey treatments (but all incredible) I actually felt happy for the first time in years on this week and much of my pain even subsided a few days later. I will post some more info relating to the specifics that I learnt and how irt helped me but I think if I had been on this week a few years ago - I certainly wouldn't have reached this stage. There is so much we can do to help ourselves. The place is called Detox International - I wont post the website as dont want to look like I'm selling soemthing but it really was amazing. My husband went on it to for support and his chronic back pain has gone after one session of rolfing! The amount of colon plaque in us too is a lot! Wow - I'm glad that's not there so my body can start again - must have been impossible with all that gunk in me! I have been advised to stay away from gluten for at least 3-4 months to heal my leaky gut and am experimenting with lots of different foods. The therapists there also confirmed that my body was highly toxic with mercury too so I am still working on my chelation prgoramme. The one thing of note is that they said that our bodies are like a 'sinking ship'. We overload it with heavy metals, pollution, chemicals, eating the wrong foods, stress and then we crash and get sick. They also said our urine pH must be alkaline to get better and remain healthy, so the akaline diet is definiteyl worth following. Just some info, will post more on other topics so it doesnt get lost. I really think something like this week sets you up for life and I even dont crave certain foods now - just healthy ones. Unfortunately I came back to a bunch of stress and can feel the aches creeping up but I know how to keep them at bay and the body is still detoxing 2-3 weeks later. I didn't feel sick or bad on this week - which I thought I would from not eating.
