An investment in your body is the most important gift you can give to yourself. I chose to do Detox 360 with Elysia Life Care because I am in the wellness field and have a new yoga project launching at the beginning of the year and honestly, i want to be the best I can be for it, not to mention I needed to a new path away from my major addiction to sugar and stave off my allergies. In my line of work, it’s important to me that I practice what I preach and I love going through new journeys! I’ve done detoxes before but this was a detox of the mind, body and spirit. Needless to say, it took a great deal of commitment and genuine self love to adjust. The first week I had headaches as the sugar left my body and it wasn’t until week 3 when my energy significantly rose, I was finally back to my normal activities of yoga and surfing. I had forgotten how much I loved cooking and yes I had to schedule days for food shopping and making sure to prep my meals. I’m not going to lie at first I thought I was going to starve, no grains, no nuts and seeds, no legumes, no caffeine, no sugar, what the hell am I going to eat? But the recipes suggested were amazing my body adjusted to the healthy foods and by the end I found myself craving the sweet potatoe fries and turkey meatballs over my normal go to sugars.
The supplements and homeopathics were a great combo and in conjunction to the added self love practices like dry brushing, detox scrubs and detox baths. I invested in acupuncture and chiropractic work weekly and most days I added in a 2nd meditation practice, read inspiring books, took naps when my body asked for them and found that my time was no longer being wasted. Instead, I’m listening closely to what my body needs, I’ve truly never felt better.
The cherry on top was the half day retreat with George Falcon. I’ve been practicing meditation with him for 2 years and he changed my life. The half day retreat was effective and inspirational. The detox yoga class with Jill was informative and felt amazing!
A big thank you to Carla, Maria and Joe for their love, support and organizing the structure of this journey. They’ve all done this so they were able to answer our questions and concerns. They are all highly dedicated and knowledgable in their field and always willing to help find an alternative when something wasn’t working for me.
On day 29, I had 2 people tell me something was different and I knew, I had shifted. Yes my skin is glowing, my body feels amazing, but the shift happened within and that energy is what people are noticing. That’s the frequency of unconditional love and I see the world in a whole new perspective. Self love is the ultimate gift you can give back to yourself. Try it, you’ll see.
