I had three excellent reasons to undertake my 10 day cleanse recently. Reading a health blog had helped me face up to the fact that I was addicted to coffee, sugar and wine; all habits that I knew I no longer wanted to be part of my everyday life.
Motivation is the key to changes that stick, so once I was clear about my reasons, the rest seemed simple. Do the cleanse and emerge fresh and radiant like a butterfly from a cocoon.
I know you want to know whether I achieved my goals, so here’s my answer.
Yes, I did.
But what I hadn’t expected were the deeper insights and long lasting impact that it would have.
7 surprise benefits from my 10 day cleanse
“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony.” – Albert Einstein
1. I don’t need coffee to be focused and productive.
I found myself steaming through tasks that I had successfully avoided for months, even years. This has continued for 3 weeks now and it’s incredible. My ability to ignore distractions and stay ‘on task’ is probably the single most noticeable change since I started the cleanse.
2. I’m less hungry because I’m better nourished.
I realised that the cleanse didn’t ‘just’ cleanse, but also nourished me deeply. Nearly three weeks later I am still eating better food less often. I rarely feel hungry. When I do, I’m primarily looking for plant food.
3. I feel dehydrated if I don’t drink 1-3 litres of water every day.
Drinking half a litre of water every two hours during the cleanse seemed excessive at first, but I soon got used to it. I now find myself more aware of my thirst than previously. I easily drink twice as much as I did before the cleanse and feel a lot better for it.
4. Tart ‘ApotheCherry’ at bedtime helps me sleep more deeply.
I always slept well, but since I started having Tart ‘ApotheCherry’ at bedtime I am asleep as soon as my head touches the pillow. My energy was great all through the cleanse and has continued even after I stopped.
5. Cleansing body and mind is just the beginning.
I had started to declutter and spring clean before I started the cleanse, but I had to go back and start over! Using the Marie Kondo book ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying’ I emptied all my cupboards and drawers of all my belongings, sifted, selected only those that ‘give me joy’ and donated the rest. It’s easy to store my things now that I don’t have to hide anything away.
6. Cleansing flushes heavy metals and chemical toxicity.
There is only one way to say this – I could see the evidence in the toilet bowl! I wasn’t constipated before, and I have been taking algae for years and years but there was no doubt in my mind that the 10 day cleanse allowed me to pass heavy metals and chemicals out of my body. Now I find that my bowels move easily several times a day, usually after each meal.
7. I look and feel lighter without feeling empty, hungry, deprived or depleted.
Today I weigh 4.5 pounds less than when I started the cleanse. I lost an inch off my waist measurement and an inch from around my ribcage. My jeans fit better and my yoga pants are loose!
The next step
The 10 day cleanse calls itself transformational and it totally is. I didn’t know what to expect but the outcomes far exceeded anything I thought might be possible.
