Day 28 of 28 of Full Detox Programme (Last Day)

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Day 7 of 7
The last day of the Full Detox Programme! Now I'm clean of toxins and hopefully will stay so for a long period. I believe I'll be very careful about what I eat, drink and think, having in mind what damage could cause the opposite.
On the last day I kept strictly to the daily menu of Week Four but also tried to enhance the cleansing

Days 26 & 27 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Days 5 & 6 of 7
Now, when I'm almost done with the Ultimate Detox, I feel strange. Maybe because I haven't felt it as a Detox procedure. I don't eat meat so it's not been a problem to avoid it, and I eat a lot of fruit & vegetables so it's not been a change having those on my menu. The other thing is that there haven't been any specific symptoms that I've been cleansing my systems: no headache, no fatigue, nothing...

Day 25 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Day 4 of 7
Day 4 of blood, lungs & skin cleansing went on as usual. I still haven't experienced any particular symptoms to make me realize I'm on Detox.
Took all the supplements and drank the herbal teas. Made one special Indian recipe for lunch, with chickpea & lentil, was very nice.

Days 23 & 24 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Days 2 & 3 of 7
The last two days I was cleansing the blood, lungs & skin. Starting each day with my cup of organic coffee, followed by a glass with Aloe Vera juice with Vitamin A, E, C, B9, Omega 3, Denoxinal pills. I don't much like the taste of Aloe Vera and take it as medicine :)

Day 22 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Day 1 of 7
Today was the first day of the last week of the Full Detox Programme. I started cleansing the blood, lungs & skin.
Had to adjust to a new regime as cleansing the above mentioned requires more teas than juices and also I have to take different supplement. So on my daily diet I put:

Week 4 of 4 of Full Detox Programme

Blood, Lungs & Skin cleansing: Week Four of Four 
Our blood bathes the cells of our bodies and provides them oxygen. Our lungs and respiratory system ensure that blood has this oxygen available. Our skin plays an integral protective and cleansing role for our bodies. What the other detox systems cannot handle, the skin tries to eliminate.

Days 20 & 21 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Days 6 & 7 of 7
Today was the last day of the Liver & Gallbladder cleansing. I kept walking at least 5 km a day, drank all the supplements (as described in Week Three, and even managed to go to the spa centre and enjoy the steam bath & sauna & hydro-massage.
I feel sorry for it was the last day with my favourite fresh juice but also happy in a way that I won't have to drink any more Milk Thistle tea :)

Days 18 & 19 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Days 4 & 5 of 7
I almost finished the Liver & Gallbladder cleansing. Comparing these five days to the first 5 in the Detox I did in July, I come to the conclusion that back then I cleansed very well and now there wasn't much to improve. So far I haven't noticed the miracle changes I had, during my first Liver & Gallbladder detoxification, with my skin condition, my body reaction, etc. Maybe my expectations were

Cleansing all the way

As my emotional cleansing goes on, the time has come to let some things and people go. I thought it's gonna be more difficult and painful but perhaps I've postponed it for too long and now I feel nothing. Maybe little sad, but it's much better to know where you stay then to wonder and be in doubt. As people

Day 17 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Day 3 of 7
Liver & Gallbladder detoxification goes well. I don't experience the symptoms as I did in July, so either they're in better shape now or the author is right and this cleansing procedure does it with almost no symptoms.
I started the day with my regular cup of organic coffee, followed by lemon water, then by 2 glasses of beetroot-carrot-apple-ginger juice.
After giving it half an hour to act I continued with Taurine, dissolved in a glass of water.

Days 15 & 16 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Days 1 & 2 of 7
My favourite detox phase! I start each day with a smile as I anticipate the best fresh juice ever: apples, carrots, beetroots & ginger! When I wake up, I drink my usual cup of organic coffee, followed by a glass of lemon water (half lemon in spring water).
Then I make & drink my favourite juice:

Price Tags: Part Five (Cost of Week 3 of Detox)

Cleansing the liver and gallbladder is my favourite part of the detox procedure. The reason is that the best results are achieved thanks to my favourite fresh juice: apples, carrots, beetroots, and ginger. But apart from it, there are some additions to the plan, which are to be taken and are suggested to increase the power of the detoxification process. Those are:

Week 3 of 4 of Full Detox Programme

Liver and Gallbladder cleansing: Week Three of Four 
Our livers have over five hundred different functions: storing certain vitamins, minerals, and sugars; controlling both the production and excretion of cholesterol; creating the thousands of enzymes; metabolizes proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and processes hemoglobin in the blood, etc.
The gallbladder secretes a green-coloured substance called bile to help break down fat and stimulate

Days 12, 13 & 14 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Days 5, 6 & 7 of 7
Today was the last day of the Lymphatic system cleansing. Truth to be told, I don't feel any better or different as far as it should concern the said system. Here are the symptoms that show that your Lymphatic system needs cleansing:

Day 11 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Day 4 of 7 
I don't feel sick with cold anymore, but still experience the symptoms of the cleansing. Kept to the regular programme with just one exception - didn't do any exercise as I had to finish the presentations for my Fri-Sat training. All is done now and I feel good. Which reminds me of one other point of the full detox Plan: the emotional cleansing. It's needed, because the repressed, suppressed, and unexpected emotions effect our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. These emotions can lead us to a

Day 10 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Day 4 of 7
Although I wasn't supposed to experience any symptoms during the cleansing, I feel mild headache and general fatigue. I guess this is a result from a) the powerful foods & supplements I take and b) the level of toxins in the organs I clean. As I've never cleaned the lymphatic system before, seems logical that cleansing it for a first time could bring such a strong reaction from my system. 
The only new thing I brought to my programme on Day 10, was a raw sweet dessert. Don't panic,

Days 8 & 9 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Days 2 & 3 of 7
I still don't feel very well and am busy with preparing the materials for a training I have at the end of the week, that's why will combine the second and third days of the Lymphatic system cleansing. 
I got into a morning routine: starting the day with a cup of organic coffee, followed by a fresh juice. Just to the wild cranberries, blueberries & apples I added blackberries & aronia. Two advices here: first, take the juice on an empty stomach (much stronger effect) and second, put

The only new thing in Week 2 of the Full Detox Programme is Echinacea.
It's supposed to be taken during the 7 days of cleansing the Lymphatic system (and cellulite).

Day 8 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Day 1 of 7 
I started the first day of the Lymphatic system cleansing with my usual organic coffee, followed by wild cranberry, blueberry & apple fresh juice.
Apparently, cranberries & apples combination is claimed to work as magic for lymphatic system cleansing. I added blackberries to it in order to increase its benefits, as they're highly appreciated as

Week 2 of 4 of Full Detox Programme

Lymphatic system (and Cellulite) cleansing: Week Two of Four 
The lymph system is a complex network of fluid-filled nodes, glands, and tubes that bathe our cells and carry the body’s “sewage” away from the tissues and neutralize it. Lymph fluid relies on breathing, movement, and massage to flow effectively, is said in the book.
Here is what is on my daily list for Week Two:

Day 7 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Kidneys and urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing: Day 7 of 7
Last day of the Kidney and Urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing went well apart from me being really down with a cold. My nose was running non-stop and I was sneezing a lot. Had much of the anti-cold tea and stayed at home the whole day. Was planning to get to the sauna or steam bath but then got a text from my fitness & spa, saying that due to some emergency works, there was no hot water in the centre.
As this was the last day of the first week, I had to decide whether to continue with the Plan or spend

Price Tags: Part Three (Cost of Week 1 of Detox)

Cost of Week One
I start writing this section with the reservation that in the original Plan there are plenty of suggestions for use of different herbs, and I can give prices to only which I bought. And as I also bought some additional detoxification substances, which are not obligatory to the Programme, you could simply extract them from the sum. For more clarity I will start with them and will also explain the rationale behind each purchase.

Price Tags: Part Two (Cost of Preparation Phase of Detox)

During the preparation phase I threw away all chemical-based cleansing product at home. Logically, the replacements came at a price. I'll list down all I bought but have in mind that the prices vary and, more to that, there are options to produce our own natural replacements at insignificant cost. Also, if you're not ready to cast out products that, as damaging as they might be, cost you a fortune and are far from

Health & Weight Loss Through Detox


I was asked if this programme helps weight reducing.
Well, while that's not the benefit I'm looking for in the Detox Plan, if you have some extra kilos, during the detox procedure you might as well lose them.
The thing is that if after the Programme is finished you continue living like before (eating bad foods, using chemicals for cleansing, being under stress etc...), your body will make everything possible to gain the lost weight back. Why is that?

Day 6 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Kidneys and urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing: Day 6 of 7
Back to the programme but continue drinking and the anti-cold tea. As a result of this constant liquids drinking, my belly is huge and I feel like a ball full of water. I realize that this is very helpful for promoting good kidney & urinary tract function but still the feeling is not pleasing. More to that, for the last couple of days, I've got flatulence. I believe it's the result of the intestinal tract cleansing yet I'm happy tomorrow's the last day from that phase.

Price Tags: Part One (General Stuff for Detox)

Here I will try to calculate the financial cost of a Detox Programme.
1. There are some things you need for the cleansing programme but their use is much wider than for the detox so you might already have them at home, as juicers, blenders, thermoses, etc. Anyway, I'll include their prices here as well, as if you don't own such, you'll have to buy them:

Day 5 of 28 of Full Detox Programme

Kidneys and urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing: Day 5 of 7
Today wasn't a big day for my Detox programme :( 
Firstly, I still don't feel very well after the cold I got last week, and secondly I didn't follow the regime strictly. I started as in the previous days, with my coffee, then taking the detox pill, the probiotics one, and the Magnesium. But then, instead of taking the recommended for the phase herbs, I made a different tea, to fight the cold. I put in:

Days 1, 2, 3 & 4 of 28 of Full Detox Programme: Resume

Kidneys and urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing: Days 1, 2, 3, 4 from 7
So far it's been going OK.
I start each day with a cup of organic coffee. Although not on the author's list and even announced by her as one of the main toxin-suppliers, when organic, coffee's got a huge power to detoxify through its diuretic & laxative abilities. Coffee is also strong antioxidant, protects liver, decreases risk of gout in men over 40, reduces the risk of: Alzheimer's disease and Dementia, of gallstone disease, of Parkinson's disease.

Week 1 of 4 of Full Detox Programme

Kidneys and urinary tract & Intestinal tract cleansing: Week One of Four 
In the original Plan the use of different foods, herbs, juices, aromatherapy, exercise, breathing techniques, and other therapies is suggested, in order to achieve better results in the healing process. As some of them are not to be found in Bulgaria and others were not appealing to me, I've changed it. In the following blog entries I'll give a full report on what I've included and what the results are. Most of what I've added is based on my previous experience with detoxification and recommendation from people with a lot of experience in the area.
Here is what is on my daily list:

Preparation Phase to the Full Detox Programme

"Detoxification is the process of cleansing the body of harmful substances, and thereby restoring the body’s natural healing ability."
During my preparation phase to the Full Detox Programme I threw away all the chemicals in my household, I was using for hygiene purposes. As I'd already been using only organic skin & body care products, I had to concentrate on all-purpose cleansers at home.

Full Detox Programme

Recently I've read the book The 4-Week Ultimate Body Detox Plan, which claims to be a guide to a greater health. Although I was thinking I was leading a healthy lifestyle (no meat, no cigarets, alcohol in moderation, plus sports) I was surprised to learn about the milliard ways toxins could penetrate our bodies through. And, very important to me, that under stress our own bodies also produce their own toxins. I was amazed by most of its content. As a result I decided to try the Plan.

When in doubt, say yes!

I've postponed the start of this blog for so long that I wasn't even sure if I'm going to start it at all. And still don't know what type of blog it's going to be. About food? Cooking? Sports? Books, music? Stray cats & dogs? Animal shelters? Healthy lifestyle? I'm yet not sure. And if I continue postponing it until I'm sure, I might as well never start it.
So let it begin and during its course it'll show what it's going to be about. What's for sure, it'll be about me and the important things in my life.
