Everyone who did a least the first week had a positive result even if there were days that they didn’t enjoy. My husband and I had our blood tests done on Friday and both of us saw significant improvement in our cholesterol. My husbands blood pressure has been on the border of hypertension for some time and it is now in a very healthy range. I think our groups top weight loss was 19.1. I lost 9 and my hubby lost 18 and he is continuing to lose now that he is off the program.
The most interesting thing reported has been congestion. Many of us found we were less congested and snored less while doing the detox and now that we are off the program many of us are starting to notice congestion. Both my husband and I have had congestion in our ears and runny noses. Other friends have noticed the same thing. I’ve had a sinus headache all day and my ears each so bad right now. I’m suspecting it is some form of food allergy or sensitivity and I will be eliminating the common suspects and see if I can identify what it is. I’m strongly suspecting it is wheat or gluten, which is really disappointing to me. I think it would be easier for me if it was dairy. It may also be a food additive since we have been dining out at restaurants several times over the weekend.
So, tomorrow starts a new clean eating plan, in hopes of regaining the optimum health I had over the past month. We have also scheduled our next short 5 day cleanse in March. I’ll be teaching classes this month for anyone who is interested in the 26 day detox or the shorter 5-7 day cleanse.
