single step.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Thank you all for the kind thoughts. I am beginning to feel better, and more like myself, which is a pretty nice feeling. Once I'm 100% better I plan on going on a detox. And no, I don't mean detox as in not eating for days on end and drinking grapefruit concoctions. That's too extreme and  defeats the purpose of a healthy detox. So, if you have any books, sites, or advice you'd like to offer, puh-lease do! Or you can also join me, blogger support at its best!

Don't worry, I'll still be your friend if you choose not to give up the sweets and what nots. Just don't go posting about cupcakes and sugar and all....yikes!

  1. I might be willing to join in.

    I'm actually writing a 5 page paper on detoxification in regards to a healthy lifestyle. It's due on the 27th and I haven't started yet. Woops.

    Anyway, a few thoughts=
    a) White tea is excellent for detoxification. Best if it's a higher quality loose leaf tea, but you know- whatever you can afford.

    b)Milk Thistle- I like capsules. They're excellent for helping to detox the liver which plays a key roll in filtering out the nastiest that get into your body on a daily basis.

    c)Cayenne Pepper- again, I like capsules. It's good for circulation...so again, good for detox. Always eat before taking the capsule though. I find it gives me wicked heartburn if I don't.

    d) Fiber. I feel like this is probably pretty self explanatory. Do some research on the internet and keep track of how much you're consuming. I'm a vegetarian and I find I have a harder time getting enough fiber in my diet than I do protein.

    I'm sure I could think of more stuff, given the opportunity. I'm rambling.

    If you'd like more info I'll delve into my notes. Email me at clair.colleen at gmail.com if you want to.

    That was a tangent. I'm done now. Lol
