Well I’m entering day 4 of my juice cleanse and I’m awake. I awoke shortly after 11:30 p.m. and have not been able to get back to sleep yet. Well, technically it is my fault. I could have drank hot tea to help me go back to sleep, but no there I lay in bed thinking about this cleanse. In some ways it feels different and in my mind I’m willing to go much longer than 12 days, if I feel like I want to do so, we’ll see.
Juice Cleanse: How am I feeling
Oh, I’m feeling a bit itchy. Also, I have a few minor breakouts on the left side of my cheek. This is normal as your body tries to remove the excess waste from your body. There are a few ways your body accomplishes this; urination, bowel movements, skin and throwing up. Yesterday, I felt great and even though I’m awake I still feel great, a bit tired but I’ll be going back to sleep in a few minutes since the hot ginger root teas has definitely worked it’s magic. I know, I know, I should have drank this a few hours ago.
Juice for the day
When I awaken in a few hours, I’ll be making juice from collards, kale, ginger, hot pepper, and lemon. I might toss a tomato or two in there also. From my years of doing juice cleanses, I’ve found that juicing dark greens to be the best way to nourish my system and flood it with a whole host of nutrients that the body craves. In addition, many of the vegetables that I include in my juicing are healing and cleansing.
