Slowly easing into fasting

heart-waterEven though I’m physically ready for a water cleanse, I thought I’d do a bit more preparation to make sure I’m mentally ready for my upcoming water cleanse.

I’m actually looking forward to the water cleanse. I haven’t done one in a while and I think it’s time. Based on the wonderful experiences I’m seeing with candida, or should I say, the reduced symptoms I’m experiencing now? The white coating on my tongue has drastically reduced. The small rash I developed because of candida is going away. I’ve also seen candida expelled when I have had bowel movements. Much of that reduction I can definitely attribute to the garlic enemas. Naturally, I think I’ll see even more results with a water fast since I’ll be starving the candida.

I’m unsure how long the water fast will be, but this one won’t be longer than seven days. I’m slowly easing into the cleanse by eating mainly raw foods. I’ve taken a few pictures of what I ate, yesterday evening and this morning, hopefully I’ll get a chance to post the pictures some time today. After the raw foods I’ll transition to freshly juiced vegetables and fruits before moving into a water cleanse.

Water cleanses are nothing new to me. A few members within my family, such as my grandmother and great aunt, did them throughout their life.  They’re both dead now. My grandmother died when she was 93 and my great aunt passed away at the age of 98.

One of my friends, when she first met me, was shocked at the amount of alternative things incorporated into my daily lifestyle. She mentioned that most people within Westernized cultures tend to shy away from trying approaches that are centuries old. I smiled and told her that I’m not most people.

I do a lot of research about whatever I do to my body. Additionally,  I’ve have amazing examples of people who actively incorporated ‘alternative remedies’ into their lifestyle.
