Last week’s temps on the far side of 100 degrees had the dogs and chickens staying indoors.
(It was hot, even around here) Sunday night a hard electrical rain storm blew inland from the Gulf Of Mexico, and ‘dumped’ almost 2 inches of rain here… real fast like!
We didn’t need the rain, but the cooler weather the storm left behind, is going down real easy.
Right now I’m sittin’ on my screened back porch typing this, enjoying a soothing breeze, on a very pleasant 87 degrees day.
I’ll tell you, the older I’m lucky enough to get, the more pleasure I get from the simpler things in life…
I guess it’s the heightened awareness of the speed of life.
Anyway, hope you’re healthy and enjoying yourself too.
Last week I told you about my 21 day body re-set diet program. And how it was more like a detox, cleansing deal.
The good news is that I finished up yesterday. The bad news is: I’m not done!
Thought that was it and I’d be getting the blood screening done.
But, nope, I’ve not suffered enough. The 21 day was merely the prelude to 8 stinking weeks of more of the same, but with diet and food supplement changes…
Ouch, my poor aching bowels!
It seems the good doctor forgot to tell me the whole program. But, he cleared that oversight up with a phone call on Saturday.
Looks like his toxic waste elimination program takes 21 days, plus 8 more weeks of eating prescribed foods.
The primary changes are different nutritional supplements. Secondary changes are a more flexible diet…
If you wanna call chickpeas, sweet potatoes and brown rice, a lotta choices. (I don’t)
Hearing this news didn’t go down easy, and I really considered pulling the plug. But, what the hell, in for a nickel, in for a dollar…
He’s also prescribing supplements that should take care of my issues of less energy, light-headedness, and bowels a-go-go.
After thinking about the whole deal, it started making sense to me…
Every single day of our life, we’ve been exposed to tens of thousands of harmful toxins. Click here to read my recent post about toxic chemicals.
Poisonous toxins are scattered throughout our environment.
Even our water and food are embedded with toxic elements which buildup and cause us health problems.
Eventually our bodies become cesspools of toxic wastes.
It only makes sense, then, to conclude that a proper detoxification program can’t be done in a few days… or even in a few weeks!
Next time I talk to the doc, I’ll have to ask him if he’s sure that only another 8 weeks of cleansing and detoxing is gonna be enough.
Stayed tuned for updates as they develop…
Ideas for me, your aging related story, or your comments are always very welcome.
