It’s been 38 days since I finished the Master Cleanse fast. Looking back, it seems impossible that I didn’t eat any food for 25 days. Twenty five days? It seems distant and far off. How could I possibly have not eaten anything for so long? And, whilst I was working in a busy office? How could I have managed it?
But, I did. That’s why I kept a journal, to remind myself.
And the results remain too.
I am significantly better than before.
I am currently 35,000 feet in the air, flying in a 747 back from a weeks business trip in India and Singapore. This was booked at the last-minute. I needed to go. I was feeling fine. So I went. I have been avoiding all business trips this year due to my ill-health. But I’m feeling good enough to travel now. I actually have a hangover as well! My first in at least six months, maybe all year, I can’t remember. I am tired and have heartburn. Have the $hits too from the Indian leg of the trip. I ate curry for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 5 days on the trot. Not ideal. Bound to mess up the works that is.
But otherwise I’m feelin’ pretty good. The fatigue has stayed away. I have a normal amount of energy. I remain pumped about this. Really feels like a new lease of life. Libido has returned somewhat too. Definitely – I have returned to an even keel.
My workouts continue. The yoga practice continues six days a week. I rise at 5am daily to practice. When I first re-started my practice I could reach down to touch my knees. Nothing lower. After three weeks of almost daily practice I am one hand lengths further downwards. Happy with that. There is no rush to reach my toes, but it is nice to see the progress I am making. I can now do five sun salutations A, followed by four sun salutations B. When I started I could only manage three feeble attempts of A before I ran out of puff.
And that’s another thing. Why do I have to practice the hardest and toughest form of yoga? Why couldn’t I have fallen in love with one of the gentler forms? A nice gently humming session seated cross-legged blissfully overlooking the ocean? I tried hatha yoga. I know the moves. It’s all the same stuff. When I re-started my practice I did the gentle stuff: hatha. But I quickly shifted back to my Ashtanga yoga practice. It’s kinda hardcore. Why? Why? Why? It’s kinda almost annoying. I have had horrible health troubles all these years and I choose the most challenging and tricky form of yoga to practice: What a dick!
But, and I have to say it’s a BIG but, I love my Ashtanga yoga practice. I have a natural instinctive love and desire to practice in this way. There is something about this form that just rings my bell. Almost like an inner calling. If I believed in previous lives, I for sure would have practiced this form of yoga before. There is something in me that just loves the physicality of it. Loves the sweat it brings on. Loves the flow and rhythm. You have a set series of asana’s (poses) all linked together with special linking moves, all in time, all with a special breathing technique.
Inhale up, exhale down.
Inhale up, exhale down.
Inhale up, exhale down.
Anyways, I’m rambling again. Otherwise I’m still fine. The results for them master cleanse have remained with me. The two-week Humaworm liver herbs I have just completed passed without incident. I had ultra-mild non-consequential side-effects. These herbs are two weeks on, two weeks, off, so I will restart the next batch a week on Monday. I might slip in another liver flush this coming weekend. Undecided as yet, not sure what’s in the diary as this past week has been hectic flying all over the world. Singapore is an awesome city. Like something out of the future. Once you get used to the extremes in poverty, Mumbai is an amazing place to visit. A totally different world out there. Makes you appreciate what you have when you see slum, after slum, after slum. Funny old world we live in.
Chelation: not on the cards yet. I want to get strong first. I want to enjoy my better health first. Chelation caused some problems in the past, not all the problems, but chelation made other problems a lot worse. I have had a tough couple of years and I am going to enjoy my yoga while I can. I cannot chelate and practice yoga at the same time. They are mutually exclusive: I get injured too often so my rule is no yoga when I chelate.
The plan remains to repeat the Master Cleanse sometime soon, probably the new year. Liver is still clogged. Still have stuff to sort out. But I am much much better now and life has returned to normality.
That’s all folks!
PS. Super-massive-respect to Steven for his turbo-powerful Master Cleanse action. Steven has had a rough old-time of it these last five years, so he decided to follow my lead and give the MC a bash. He did 10 days!!! He is thinking clearer! Rock n roll dude! Keep up the good work. Told you it was not as difficult as it seemed!
PS. The above was written a week ago on the plane back but I didn’t get time to publish. I liver flushed last night. Got 250-300 gallstones out. Nice! And importantly I am managing the flushes fine. I am strong enough now. I don’t recommend them if you are proper sick.
