Beeting the Odds: 9 Day Body & Mind rEvolution (Day 5)

Day 5: Juice, Colonic, Kombucha

I’m offering a golden nugget here; to anyone in a health rut, tired of their own excuses and ready to make a change. No gimmicks, no cost, nothing to subscribe to…just simply follow each of my 9 daily posts in the Articles section of my blog, read the information and you’re on the way to body & mind freedom. Sharing is caring! 😉

Over 2 years ago, as a fairly stagnant and obese holistic health skeptic, I finally broke free from my conditioned mind, did some research and used the very same principles within this 9 day detox program to shed 70 pounds, overhaul my habits and stay healthy. Granted, I didn’t do it in 9 days…I did it in 45 days (20/10/10/5 over a 6 month period); which would be like doing this program 5 times. That leaves you with the other 320 days of the year to just eat, look and feel amazing!

Colonics

So, today begins the 3rd day of the juice fasting portion of the program and at this point, we should be really working a lot of the nastiness from our body (I know I am). Good work…KEEP IT UP! Moving forward, we’re going to do a bit more heavy lifting, so to speak; and I promise, once you get over this halfway hump you should be feeling fantastic (if you aren’t already). That said, I strategically placed a Colon Hydro-Therapy session (Colonic) just about at the mid-point through the program. A colonic will truly get things “moving” while the timing allows you to continue the juicing work afterward in case you need to do another colonic at the end of the detox. I know when I got my first colonic back in 2014, I needed 2 full sessions; so be aware you may be in the same boat (possibly even requiring 3 or more depending on your lifestyle).

When I first began fasting on juice, I went through many withdrawal symptoms; headaches, stomach upset, sniffles, chills, etc…but it wasn’t until day 4 that I actually started feeling good. I was like, WOW, this juicing stuff really does work! Then on the 5th day, I went for my first colonic…and afterward, I felt 10x BETTER than that! Like, way better than I had felt in many, many years. Although, I didn’t quite look it yet…I felt young again; as I drove out of the parking lot I felt like I had left 20 years back there. This is when I realized that colon hydro-therapy was not mumbo-jumbo.

Not only is Colon Hydro-Therapy a legitimate procedure but, in my experience, a mandatory one. Between the 2 sessions I had during that first juice fast, I lost 10 pounds in weight! And not to get too graphic here…but I watched it all come out of me. The experience not only clears your body; but your mind as well. Once I saw how these therapies were all connected and working in harmony with each other, I kept on juicing and soon converted to a 100% plant based diet. All of my existing health issues were completely reversed. I owe much of this to my colon hydro-therapist, Patti Hartman, who has been a wealth of knowledge to me for the last 2 years. I’ve never received similar care, attention, treatment or information from my conventional doctor (or any other specialist I’ve seen for that matter). That said, to learn more about Colonics, go to Patti’s page.

Kombucha

One of the great treats you’re allowed to have during a juice fast is Kombucha. It is a plant-based, raw, fermented drink that is pro-biotic. I recommend drinking Kombucha (8 oz servings) after you receive your colonic(s) and each day onward. The reason being is that some of our gut’s good bacteria gets lost during a colonic (bowel movements as well). Kombucha is a great way to get the colony up and thriving again before you start eating again. There are many good brands out there, but the best ones I’ve had are by G.T.’s Synergy, Kevita and Aqua Vitea.
