Couples Who Detox Together Stay Together
As you know, my husband and I decided last week to do a 5 day liver detox ☠️ 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. 👯
✅ helped with tiredness
✅ eliminated daily headaches
✅ 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)
✅ found some great new foods that I ❤️
✅ natural herbs and not lab chemicals 🔬
✅ cravings dissipated - need for coffee, chips, 🍫 , 🍷 went away. I still don't really believe it 😳 this was is also a side bar effect of clean eating. Don't get me wrong I still ❤️ those things and will enjoy eating them but it isn't a crutch or daily fix.
✖️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 💩. 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).
✖️ 5 cloves of garlic and 5 tablespoons of EVOO on day 5 😝 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 👶 like me.
✖️it is not easy or for the faint of 💕
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 😉
🔹do research ahead of time on the best program for you and the side effects
🔹be prepared and have a plan
🔹stock your 🏡 full of good healthy food, you don't want to be hangry
🔹avoid intense workouts instead go for walks and do some yoga 🙏
🔹get a massage to help move the toxins through and increase the positive impact of the detox
💠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!
💠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 🍗 intake but I'm super proud that he held strong. 👏💪
💠Funniest quote from day 2: "the only difference I feel is that I am on the verge of 💩 my pants " The detox will also help to cleanse your digestive system = Win! Win!
💠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. 💯🏆#vivbuzz
