This is a picture of what I expect to see when I look in the mirror after the couple of days I’ve had.
I’m here to tell you that the Master Cleanse is a walk in the park compared to this eating mostly greens. For one thing, the lemonade on the Cleanse was refreshing and filling. For the last two days I’ve had fresh vegetable juice and soup, raw veggies, and my green juice from a powder (which I lovingly refer to as “swamp water”). I’ve also been burning energy cleaning out our garage, so I feel like I’m running on empty. I had hoped to make it through a week on this regime, but I need some protein. I actually broke down tonight and had some bumps on a log. My version is celery, almond butter and raisins. It’s all still alkalinizing, just not the strictly green diet that the book recommends.
I believe I’m on a long, uphill climb back to good health. Ever see a bunny climb?
One more thing I wanted to mention. I very seldom get earaches, but for some reason I woke up last night with one threatening. I was actually a little excited because I was finally able to test a natural remedy that a friend mentioned to me years ago. I got up and stumbled to the kitchen, knowing that I actually had the needed item on my counter. This might sound odd, but I peeled a clove of garlic, stuck it in my ear, and went back to bed. I wasn’t sure if it would kick the earache, but I figured I’d at least be safe from vampires, and that made the effort worthwhile.
I woke up several hours later with no earache, no sign of vampires, and my hubby on the far edge of the bed. I’m happy to report that it served its purpose, although I might want to warn my husband next time.
