Day 3, yippeee!!!!!

I feel better today.

Not as hungry.

Thanks for all your comments. I must state that I am a very nearly qualified naturopath and do know exactly what my body needs for survival and I'm giving this cleanse a go because a) I bought it ages ago and don't want to waste the $119 I spent on it and b) I have heard first hand that it has worked and c) if nothing else, it gives me a good start to eating more healthily.

That been said, popped around to a buddy's last night to discuss our ten year old girls and their issues!! She offered me a glass of wine and I said yes and drank half of it before it even clicked that I was on a detox!! What a dick. Then again, the booklet that comes with it says one drink a day is not going to undo what you are doing, so that's okay.

I am lacking a bit in energy today but I think I need some more fruit and I better go eat some right now.

PS, Jim, would love to hear more about your experience with the Cleanse. I'm open to all views and opinions.

PPS Kitty, don't tempt me to eat ham and cheese toasties you cunning little pussy cat. A healthy liver is great at detoxing but an unhealthy one that is "fatty" and shown to be enlarged on an ultrasound can do with a little help. Dandelion root, ginger, fennel, alfalfa, barley grass, etc etc all good things, not bad.

Well done on surviving the hungry stage (& no toasties!)! I did the liver cleansing detox a few years ago - something like 6 days with only raw fruit & veg juices - Hopefully you are over the worst of it now. Keep up the good work :0)

Hi Jules,

I was diagnosed with NAFL (non-alcoholic fatty liver) and yet I found out only because I caught a glimpse of my chart. The doctor didn't even tell me. He only said he was concerned about my high cholesterol.

I also know a decent amount about natural medicine, but doubt nearly as much as you do. I try to eat gluten-free and organic and I don't eat a lot of processed foods but I've been terribly sporadic about eating in general and exercise especially.

What kind of cleanse would you recommend for the liver? You mentioned a few things--if you have any resources or links I'd love that!

Thanks,
Hannah
