5 day liver and gallbladder detox

As you know, my husband and I decided last week to do a 5 day liver detox โ˜ ๏ธ Our last day of the detox was a week ago and I wanted to give you the DL of our experience in case you are trying to decide if it could be the right decision for you. ๐Ÿ‘ฏ

โœ… helped with tiredness
โœ… eliminated daily headaches
โœ… bounding energy after the cleanse (literally doing squats and lunges in the kitchen the day after the cleanse bc I had so much energy I needed to burn off)
โœ… found some great new foods that I โค๏ธ
โœ… natural herbs and not lab chemicals ๐Ÿ”ฌ
โœ… cravings dissipated - need for coffee, chips, ๐Ÿซ , ๐Ÿท went away. I still don't really believe it ๐Ÿ˜ณ this was is also a side bar effect of clean eating. Don't get me wrong I still โค๏ธ those things and will enjoy eating them but it isn't a crutch or daily fix.

โœ–๏ธnot an easy one to do. requires a lot of time and prep to make the herbal tea everyday, 2 tinctures for shots 5 times a day, liver flush drink every morning and dietary changes (if you want max results). I decided if I was going to take the time to do it then I was all in on the diet changes as well. This is also a pro though. It did require a lot of work but I would rather that than the typical liver detoxes that are just a bunch of laboratory chemicals jammed into a capsule. Weird to me to detox the liver yet add more ๐Ÿ’ฉ. I didn't take any supplements during this time except for the superfood (which was recommended as part of the liver cleanse) and Vitamin D (a MUST for me).
โœ–๏ธ 5 cloves of garlic and 5 tablespoons of EVOO on day 5 ๐Ÿ˜ almost killed me...or those around me ;) again this is also a pro because I liked that it was real food being used to cleanse and heal the body so it really isn't a con unless you're a ๐Ÿ‘ถ like me.
โœ–๏ธit is not easy or for the faint of ๐Ÿ’•

The 5 days are pretty grueling. It is common on a detox to be low energy and even get a reaction from the body detoxing - the same as it would if it was fighting off an infection/ cold. This happened to my husband. He had night sweats and a slight fever on day 3 & 4. I experienced feelings of nausea and wanting to vomit on day 1 & 2 so that was fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ”นdo research ahead of time on the best program for you and the side effects
๐Ÿ”นbe prepared and have a plan
๐Ÿ”นstock your ๐Ÿก full of good healthy food, you don't want to be hangry
๐Ÿ”นavoid intense workouts instead go for walks and do some yoga ๐Ÿ™
๐Ÿ”นget a massage to help move the toxins through and increase the positive impact of the detox

๐Ÿ’ On day 5 it was the afternoon before I realized that I hadn't had any coffee!?! I didn't think this could ever happen. How could I simply forget to have my morning coffee but I felt great!
๐Ÿ’ While at the end of day 5 my husband had dreams that Chipolte had a meat buffet!?! WHAT!!! One might say he was missing his daily meat ๐Ÿ— intake but I'm super proud that he held strong. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช
๐Ÿ’ Funniest quote from day 2: "the only difference I feel is that I am on the verge of ๐Ÿ’ฉ my pants " The detox will also help to cleanse your digestive system = Win! Win!
๐Ÿ’ Dr Schulze recommends doing the detox twice a year but I think once a year and less alcohol overall is my personal recipe for success. This is a very powerful detox and not for the faint of hearts. It wasn't easy and requires a lot of prep work and ensuring you have plenty of good foods to keep you fueled. I chose to go mainly all raw and my husband did all vegetarian and raw 90% of the 5 days. Overall it was an amazing experience and definitely a step in the right direction to heal and respect my body in many ways. It felt like a reset button for my liver, digestive system, mental state, and eating habits. ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ†#vivbuzz
