This month I decided to do a 10 day detox after following my lovely friend Peace Ravenwood at SUPER FOOD SHAMAN on her previous detox. Peace recommended the Purium products which were new to me. I have been taking supplements for around the last 16 years and am always willing to try new products and experiment. I was introduced to the importance of nutrition in my early twenties by a friend. Lee took me away from the conditioning of the social media to eat low fat, low calorie diets and instead eat natural healthy fats such as nuts, seeds and oils with plenty of fruit, veg and protein. Lowering our intake of white sugary carbs such as potatoes, pasta and bread. From eating in this way I have never had a weight problem. I was more interested in just giving myself a really good cleanse, breaking any food cravings and cleaning my gut.
In his book One Spirit Medicine, Alberto Villoldo talks about the importance of diet and how health begins with the gut. This is a fascinating digestable book (pun intended). He recommends a detox but for ease I decided to follow the Purium cleanse knowing that I could easily carry on purchasing products afterwards to help with any health transitions.
I followed the athlete cleanse to help build my muscles which have atrophied due to my neurological condition CMT. This was a schedule of 3 green shakes a day with supplements in-between (all provided in the pack). I was also allowed 3 ‘flex’ food snacks a day and a 300 calorie flex meal in the evening. I can honestly say I was never hungry. Flex foods are foods such as blueberries, broccoli, cucumber, celery. No starchy fruit or vegetables such as white potato and bananas. You can drink herbal teas but no black tea or coffee. I also cut out all animal products and sugar. I knew it wouldn’t be easy but it got easier as the days progressed. I still had to cook for my family but had no problem with this. I listened to motivational talks while I prepared their food even if I wasn’t eating myself. On an emotional level physical detoxing does bring out some of your vulnerabilities and at times I felt a bit fragile. I just did more meditation and gentle exercise every day.
On a physical level the results were a loss of 2 lb (remember I wasn’t trying to lose weight), a loss of 2.5 inches on my waist and 1.5 inches on my hips and a further inch off chest and thighs in total. For me the real results were apparent the next day when I did a completely new and different shamanic healing technique on my new client!! Villoldo says that when we clean the gut-brain connection we can more easily access our higher brains and gain the wisdom of One Spirit Medicine – the healing done by the elders of the earths tribes.
I also channelled 2 amazing meditations a few days later, one is free to anyone who subscribes to my mailing list, click HERE to subscribe and claim your free meditation. The other is on my interview for the upcoming Heartbeat of Mother Earth Summit. Click HERE to register…my interview on Crystals will be aired on 11th Feb at 3pm UK time but can be listened to later if you can’t catch it live.
So here I am…linking in to what I think is One Spirit Medicine. Inspiration is flowing through me. I am accessing wisdom with real flow and ease. I feel joyous and peaceful. I have continued my gentle exercise programme and I have also continued to take the Purium products, drinking one green shake (Hippokrates) a day and taking other supplements such as American White Ginseng. I’m feeling motivated and energised and am continuing to practise new techniques on clients.
I am looking to do another 10 day cleanse starting on the 10th May leading up to a sweatlodge held by Turtle Lodge Healing in Newark on the 20th May. I am asking anyone would they like to join me on the Purium cleanse. I have a limited number of 50 euro gift cards available to help anyone purchase the products. You just need to contact me. If you decide to do the cleanse I will invite you to a free shamanic gathering and meditation every evening through the cleanse starting 10th May online on Zoom.. If you would like to join me on the sweatlodge on the 20th details are HERE.
If you are interested in starting a 10 day detox with Purium now you can visit my store HERE. Get in touch if you would like a gift card to use on your order.
For me there is no doubt in my mind that nourishing ourselves on a physical level ultimately not only contributes to our physical health and well-being BUT opens us up to limitless possibilities and energies. Ask yourself this question….
HOW ALIVE DO I WISH TO BE?
