Yikes, I just spent 21 days on a detox, cleansing my body or so I thought. I felt lethargic most of the time with the exception of those times that little miracles happened and I got a quick 'high', sometimes lasting for many hours. That's what those little miracles can do when we open ourselves to the idea of having them(you know its the way we look at things).
Ok, back to the detox. So it was a reputable detox source and everyone else in the group seemed to be feeling fine but I should know better with my history of 'holistic and complementary medicine' research over the past 3 decades.
I was taking care to keep on the Blood Type Diet to reduce my risk of chronic disease but I forgot to include the Zone Diet as well...oops big mistake. I had no energy. My sister-in-law who is a colon therapist told me to have a colonic or two. A few other health professionals suggested that when you detox, the toxins are leaving the body and that process may exhaust you. Well it was not supposed to wear me down as it was a gentle detox, not giving up food totally as some fasting programs might do.
Just realized the problem. I was eating tons of carbs, especially on the 4 middle days, and that threw my body into total stress. What else is new! I forgot about keeping every meal, even snacks, balanced with protein, carbs and fats. My meals were way too high in carbs according to Dr Barry Sears of The Zone Diet.
So, now I have to go back and figure out how to do this detox program to keep my health and energy flying high, not to forgot the part I play in advising others of the same.
Will keep you updated with my new thoughts on the subject.
