Outcomes of this fasting experiment
If you cast your thoughts back to Day 5 of my blog, I had put down that two of my key reasons for doing this experiement were to:
- Cleanse my body of any unwanted toxins which had built up over time
- To see what was possible with my body and to see what would happen with no food.
I checked the scales this morning -10.1kg
This morning I weighed in at 62.7kg and I started at 72.8kg which is a loss of 10.1kg in 19 days. My outcome for this experiment was not to lose lots of weight and I decided that I didn’t want to lose any more. As a result, and with the peace of mind that I’ve achieved my outcome for this experience, I decided today would be my last day of water only.
So you haven’t eaten for nearly three weeks, what would you like first?
How about a Bentonite clay and Psyllium husk cocktail?
For my last day of water fasting, I had one final cleansing experiment to do. Over a 6 hour period, I had a mixture of bentonite clay in water one hour, then on the next hour, a psyllium husk and slippery elm mixture, then the next hour the clay again and repeated this 6 times in total. It felt as if there was a weight in my stomach, and I was a little concerned that I’d overdone the husk drink which can cause constipation!
Bentonite Clay is an effective detoxifier with substances that absorb toxins from our alimentary canal. Bentonite clay can never be absorbed by the body, so it’s not poisonous at all. When we take bentonite clay with psyllium Husk, the clay does the important duty of absorbing all toxic substances from our mucuous linings – it’s like a magnet that attracts toxins. Psyllium husk then finishes the job by pushing all these nasty substances such as mucoid plaque out of our body.
Bentonite Clay, it’s all negative
The reason bentonite clay is so effective in what it does is because it has a negative charge, and most toxins in our body have a positive charge. Since opposites attract it makes bentonite clay so useful in binding to toxins. Bentonite clay can absorb any toxic substances imaginable including:
- harmful bacteria
- parasites etc.
It does this without posing any nasty side effects in us, because as mentioned before, it can’t be absorbed by us.
Back to Northey St, the organic markets
I was like a child in a candy store this morning at the markets and bought heaps of fruit and vegetables – I mean HEAPS! This included oranges, lemons, limes, apples, 6kg carrots, a 9kg watermelon, beetroots, kale, 2 bags of guavas and a handful of other delicious items. I can’t wait to get juicing tomorrow and watermelon is on the top of my list. FYI, an organic watermelon that size only cost $18 which I thought was very reasonable. Back to my friend Don Tolman, he apparently fasted for 90 days on watermelon and watermelon juice alone!
P.S. that is definately not my intention right now – can’t wait to eat.
Decisions about the rest of this fast
Tomorrow I’ll explain about what I’ll be doing for the rest of the fast and also for those who are interested, the result of the clay and psyllium husk cocktail party!
