It has been exactly 2 months since I undertook a 10 day water fast. Actually it was 11 days. The benefits have been incredible.
When I finished the fast there were noticeable changes immediately. I had lost close to 14 pounds. My skin was glowing. My eyes were bright and clear. All signs of good health.
What can I say now, after the excitement has passed?
More great news!
When I moved to Victoria 15 years ago, I had the worst case of allergies every May and June. I had to take Claritin in order to make it through the day. Every May. Every June. Like clockwork.
And...drum roll please. So far, nothing. NOTHING! A few sneezes here and there. But I have yet to jump into the allergy season. This is exciting. The strength of my immune system. I am very happy, especially since I work outdoors during the summer at the markets.
Since returning from the fast, I have noticed that I have more physical strength and stamina. I sleep way better, and can go all day long without tiring. I am able to exercise more without injury. I am running again, and doing some weight training. I will also be starting Pilates soon. My body is responding well.
I believe the fast was a gift. A way to cleanse and restore. Now I eat about 95% raw foods. Mainly fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds. It's important to nourish a cleansed system. I feel that I am on the road to optimal health day by day.
I would love to talk to you about this, if you are interested, and support you on your healing journey as well.
Remember...take care of your inside and you will shine on the outside.
