My order of Dr. Morse’s tonics has just arrived! I ordered them from Angela in Greece at http://herbsfordetox.com/
- Adrenal Gland Tonic
- Lymphatic System Tonic I
- Brain and Nervous System Tonic II
- Thyroid & Thymus Tonic
How excited was I to watch Dr Morse’s Q & A # 301 and hear him addressing my questions (16m11s)! As I’d thought, I have a lot of work to do. He recommends I go on a 100% fruit diet. so I’m moving that way gently, starting with at least 1 full fruit meal a day. Eye photos here.
The new year is here and with it a refreshed sense of hope. Hope that I will see my goals through to fruition. And to be honest, I believe that I will, because I have a real PLAN, not a wishy-washy idea.
THE BIG PICTURE: IMPROVED HEALTH
First of all, I’m taking it 3 months at a time. My overall goal for this year is to dramatically improve my health and the first step to that is to CLEAN my body out.
So – today my detox started. This detox will last until the end of March – possibly longer, I’ll reevaluate that when I get there. I’ve packed away anything in the kitchen that is not ‘allowed’.
- Foods allowed
apples, bananas, grapes, grapefruit, oranges, papayas, pears, mandarines, pineapple, asparagus, avocadoes, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, lettuce, pumpkin, radishes, cabbage, bell peppers, spinach, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, amararanth, almonds, sprouts, herbal infusions, lemons, olive oil, coconut oil, herbs, spices, apple cider vinegar, Himalayan salt, Goji berries, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, vegan protein powder, fresh garlic, fresh turmeric, pomegranate seeds, seaweed. It’s heavy on the veg as I need time to transition (I’m not a big fruit eater in general) and am thinking of 2 fruit meals + veg meal (plus a possible grain) in the evening – either raw or stir-fried / steamed. I know Dr Morse would recommend going raw on fruits only, but I really want to make this a lifestyle and not just a detox. So, my way of thinking is to ease into it and as winter turns to spring, ease off on the cooked and have more raw. I’m giving up: coffee, alchohol, wheat, sugar and the odd processsed vegan meal.
I’m taking herbs to work on my GI tract, lymphatic system, etc… Been on a GI detox programme (bought from another supplier some time ago) and also drink an infusion of Horsetail, Alfalfa, Marshmallow Root, Dandelion Burdock, Goldenrod every day. From next week including another infusion with; Gotu-Kola, Ginkgo Biloba, Skullcap, Mullein, Fenugreek, Bladderwrack (low dose), Bugleweed, Irish Moss and Saw Palmetto
Cycling & stretching – 6-7 times a week.
Every morning before showering – trying to make that a habit, but forget sometimes
I started meditating about 23 years ago. I need to make sure I take enough time out every day to reconnect to Source.
- Environment detox
This is a biggie. I work part-time online and spend far too much time on the computer. Need to cut back on Facebook (a lot).
- Skin / home products
We pretty much use all vegan, bio products, so I just need to tweak the odd thing.
Well here I am, starting a new blog. Let me warn you from the word go – I’m not the best of bloggers, I’m not the chatty-writer type and tend to lose interest in blogging after a while, so I’m hoping to stick with this one, at least for the next year. The reason I’m starting this blog is that I am about to set off on a self-healing adventure and blogging about it is going to be a great way to stay focused.
My little adventure begins on the 1st January 2015 and involves;
- going to go 80% + raw vegan. The vegan part isn´t what I’m worried about – I been doing that for about a year now, it’s the raw bit I’m a little nervous about. In fact I should be going 100% raw, but I’m going to ease into it a little. It’s the middle of winter and just thinking about cold food gives me the shivers. Nevertheless.
- eliminating EVERYTHING except fruit and vegetables. By that I mean coffee, alcohol, grains, bread, pasta, etc, etc. Let me say it again – EVERYTHING except fruits and vegetables – leaning heavily on the fruits (80%+)
- upping my exercise routine. Long story there – but let’s just say – I need to exercise a lot more than I’ve been doing. I’m aiming at 6 days out of 7.
- other detox-related practices.
Reason for all this apparent craziness is that I am starting a proper detox loosely based on Dr. Robert Morse’s. I have only recently discovered this amazing man’s work and it really resonates with me.
How long am I planning on doing this? Quite frankly, I have absolutely no idea – as long as it takes – I have some serious detoxing to do!!
