So did anyone else do the Mama and Baby Love Spring Cleaning/Detox?
How did it go for you?
It was a pretty great experience for me. I did not do all the things I intended to do, but in the end it accomplished what I wanted. I wanted it to be an overall healing experience for me, but I had no real intentions about exactly what the outcome should be, I just knew I needed some time to be mindful and give my body and mind a break.
The oil pulling did not work out for me. I tried it once and almost threw up. I could not stand the taste of pure olive oil in my mouth. I will have to try it again later, maybe with coconut oil and see if it goes any better.
I loved doing the dry brushing in the morning before a shower. It really helped me to wake up and feel energized for the day. I have kept up dry brushing, not every day, because I don’t shower every day. :)
I drank lots of lemon water, raw milk and broth but ended up eating dinner each night too. I couldn’t resist the dinners I cooked for my family and since they were all slow cooker freezer meals (which are very healing and easy to digest) I figured it was just fine for me in this moment.
I enjoyed drinking more raw milk. I forget what a great snack it is and how filling it is. After the cleanse I find myself grabbing a glass of milk in between meals instead of other snacks, that may or may not be healthy for me.
I did lots of pampering of myself and that was probably the best part. Giving myself permission to not work so hard and just take care of me.
I ended up renting the detoxing foot bath thingy, so that was awesome. I did one, every other day, for a full week. I will have to do a post on it soon, it is just crazy to watch the water turn brown and all disgusting as it pulls out the toxins.
And I did end it with a colonic! I lasted much longer this time and she told me that my gas was much better. She could tell my diet and digestion had improved. I still had gas and that made it painful at times, so I know I am not where I want to be digestion wise.
So tell me all about your experiences!
