That’s right I have lost track of my days but who’s counting, I stopped and here’s why?
During my detox diet I have learned soooo much about my health. As you know I started this particular journey because I wanted to loose some unwanted fat in my face and upper body. Well as it turns out, I actually have thyroid issues. So detoxing alone will not cure this, my body is iodine deficient. Now don’t get me wrong detoxing was very helpful, I lost a total of 5 pounds in less than 2 weeks. Carolyn Akens program played a big part in this process check this amazing program here http://www.carolynakens.com/holistic-health-coaching/detox-questionnaire/body-rejuvenation-detox-program/. One of the detox methods Carolyn mentions in the program is the Master Cleanse diet. I was so amped up about doing this cleanse but after 3 wonderful days I ended it. I lost my last 2 pounds in those 3 days….wow…I was happy and thankful that I didn’t turn over and die from not eating nothing…lol. Not having to cook any meals for three days gave me a lot of free time to research and this is how I found out my thyroid issue. I think I had every symptom u can think of. So now I am on a journey to cure myself of this issue. Eating right and exercise is only one part, I now have to restore my body back to optimal health. I recently purchased some lugol’s Iodine solution and other vitamins to get me there. I will inform you guys…my wonderful supporters of my condition.
P.S. Let me say this…because my issue is not life threatening and I am fully aware on how to care for myself, I will do so. But if you have serious health issues please seek outside health care professionals for help!
To those of you who called and sent emails to check on me, thanks thanks thanks thanks!
