January Detox Month

I’ve had several friends request my detox program. I don’t do just one kind of detox program, I’ve tried many, researched and built my own program based on what I have in my house, my budget, and my bodies needs. Everyones circumstances are different, think about that if you decide to do a detox. I will post links to some of my favorite authors on detox. You have to know your health, what you can afford and your ability to follow through. If you decide to do a detox you will get to know who you are and all your habits. Habits need to be fed and when you don’t feed them with your attention they usually throw a fit, so get ready for that!

Doing a detox, dropping your well established eating routines will shake-up your daily routines. This will make it easier for you to establish new, healthier daily living and eating routines. All you need to do is pull one little rock out of the wall that’s been blocking your way to better health. That big wall will crumble like a cracker and you can walk on to establishing healthier living habits if you want too. Many folk don’t want to walk into the unknown, this time trust yourself and approach this project with strong determination.  Most of my diet is related to giving my gut flora and fauna a healthy place to live. Science is finding when you have healthy gut flora and fauna everything about your physical and mental health will improve and start healing if you have chronic ill health.

I’ve never written my whole detox program down because it changes every time I do a detox. I do three, one month long detoxes every year. A constant with each detox, no caffeine, no meat, no sugar, no processed foods or drinks, no alcohol, and no grains. I try and avoid eating, drinking and doing stressful stuff that will harm my gut flora and fauna. I do eat organic buckwheat, rice, and potatoes for my starches. I will eat my chickens eggs and yogurt with lots of naturally fermented foods. I will eat tons of greens and drink lots of water and herb teas. I avoid most fruits as well. I will post information about why I avoid fruit in a later blog.

Today I am making tofu from organic soybeans I buy in bulk 20lb bags. Still very expensive, however I save about 40% buying bulk. I will post an old blog that goes through the steps of making homemade tofu and soy milk. I have absolutely no problems digesting organic soy as long as I eat some naturally fermented foods with it like kimchee. Just a reminder, people have been eating soybeans for thousands upon thousands of years with no health problems. My guess the problem people are having with soybean now is soybean farming practices, factory production, and genetic manipulation causing huge amounts of toxins that we ingest along with the soybean, which destroys our guts ability to digest and upsets our endocrine system.

I will be posting my food recipes and exercise routine every day. This is for you Birdie xox
