Week Two of the Parasite Cleanse!
It is now the completion of week 2 on the Parasite Cleanse and man oh man do I have some updates for you!! Great things below, I suggest you check out each result so you know how my experience was and what to expect in yours! I decided not to bore you with my daily feelings/experiences (check out Post 1 if you want the intro), rather I’d share with you the exciting overall results!
If there is anything else you want to know, I welcome your feedback & questions! Ask away below..
How I ate and how this affected the cleanse: I started out eating like normal, just had fruit/oats for breakfast, salads for lunch and whatever I wanted for dinner (keep in mind, I am also a vegetarian so no meat on the cleanse). With the colon cleanse and all the fiber I was getting from my veggies, my bowel movements were happening 3+ times/day. I felt like I was really cleansing my body. Then by day 5 I had to go to a friend’s going away dinner, so I binged on pizza and pasta. This led me to make more poor choices in the following days full of bagels, more pizza, and refined sugars in the form of cake, ice cream and mochi and I tell ya, I really felt a difference. My bowel movements slowed to maybe once/day, they even almost halted, and the amount that was coming out was minuscule compared to the first handful of days because of the processed foods I was eating. I am a pizza person and I couldn’t resist a night out to celebrate with friends, but I regretted these decisions because I knew I was supposed to avoid sugars and processed foods. I felt like I wasn’t getting enough out of my cleanse, which led to…
Juicing!: I started juicing for the past 4 days and I am really feeling the benefits and changes!! My face is glowing, my skin is clearing, my tummy is flattening, and my energy levels are through the roof!! I feel like I can think clearer and enjoy my days more! My bowel movements have returned to multiple times a day in large amounts so I am so happy I’m finishing the cleanse strong. I highly recommend implementing cold-pressed, organic green juices into your daily meals while on this cleanse. I will include my recipes in another post (stay tuned). For now, check out this link for ideas. This is from “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” which inspired me to juice cleanse and it is amazing. Check it out on Netflix!
Skin: I have been told by multiple people that my face is glowing! I am so shocked because I honestly feel like it is too! My skin looks more moisturized, I have more color in my lips, and more pigment in my skin tone. I also have noticed my skin is clearing up – finally something that is working! Two places in particular, I have repeat offenders where even when I pop these pimples, without fail they return. I kid you not, these pimples are gone right now! I hope this isn’t one of those phases where I think it’s clearing but it pops back up, so I’ll keep you guys informed about that situation!
Energy: Levels are through the roof! Not many of you know this, but I work in an office Monday – Friday 7:30am – 4:30pm HST as a Recruiting Specialist/Account Manager. This job is so stressful, mundane at times, and really not anything I’m passionate about, so stress levels spike! Pre-cleanse, I was often/easily pissed off, snappy, annoyed, and exhausted despite my daily coffee routine. Post-cleanse I am still a little sluggish to get up in the morning (not so much a morning person myself) but once my eyes have finally settled into the open stage, I am wide awake, happy, and hilarious if I do say so myself – I have been cracking some funny jokes around work and everyone is noticing it, haha! This energy boost is making it hard to sit at a desk all day and work, BUT I am grateful for the change in mood, as work has been a complete stressful drag lately.
Parasite sightings: You guys, I apologize…I TRIED to dig and find worms to analyze and potentially take pictures of so I could share them with you, but I just don’t have the stomach for it! I would get queasy at the first attempt and just couldn’t stomach it. However, I still have seen the thin, stringy white worms on the outsides and the fact that I can see them on the outside makes me think there are TONS! I’ve lost count of how many, and I can only imagine how many are actually in there if I could really analyze, but
I am blown away at the results and how many parasites have come out.
If I’ve seen this many without digging, I can’t even imagine what’s really in there and all the different kinds (gross!) Here is a link to Google images of parasites, but beware it’s pretty graphic in my opinion: Parasites! And yes, these are what you actually see coming out of you! Don’t worry, they aren’t alive and you don’t feel them at all. If you are worried about this, feel free to ask me and I can go into more detail!
Still to come:
On my How To Post, you can find links to each product I used. The total cost of this cleanse was less than $40! (UPDATE: with the probiotics added, it increases the cos a bit. If you want to keep your cost low, talk with an associate at your local health foods store and ask them about a cost-effective probiotic.) If you opt out of the Ornithine and Arganine, it’s even cheaper. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions!
