Medical Medium’s Original 369 Cleanse

….the Healing Journey is 3 steps forward, 2 steps back.

Last week I decided to dive into my third Medical Medium’s 369 Cleanse. Here’s a little about the Original 369 Cleanse. 1. It’s a Cleanse that lasts 9 days separated in days of 3. 2. On all days you are consuming 16 ounces of Lemon water wait 30 minutes, followed by 16 ounces of celery juice when waking (Luckily I have been doing this for a year and half, so this was easy), 3. Days 1-3 you can have breakfast of your choice after the lemon water and celery juice, lunch of your choice, and dinner of your choice 4. Every night you incorporate again 16 ounces of lemon water and a night time tea which mine happened to be lemon balm.

Days 1-3, were easy for me, because I have been eating this way every day since I started changing my diet a year and a half ago.

Days-4-6 were a little more of a challenge since you can’t eat cooked food (except for steamed brussels sprouts and steamed asparagus). Here I ate the Liver Rescue Smoothie every day for breakfast after my lemon water and celery juice. I had a snack of an apple in the morning, then for an afternoon snack I ate apples, celery sticks and dates, and for lunch and dinner I made different versions of the liver rescue salad.

Days 7-9 were where all of the magic happens, where a lot of the detoxing happens, to get rid of crap that has been tucked away deep down in your tissues. Day 7 I got to eat steamed potatoes and asparagus for dinner. Day 8 was strictly liver rescue smoothie, spinach soup and steamed asparagus. Day 9 is the juice day.

Now that you’re caught up about this cleanse, here is what I experienced during it. This third cleanse for me was hard. Much harder than the other 2. This time I wasn’t exactly eating and trying the recipes like I was with the other two before I started them. This time I felt had a lot of downs and more set backs.

First off, I felt good during Days 1-3, I usually eat this way most of the time. So I decided on Day 4 to join a family friend in a ‘warm’ yoga class (the room was about 90 degrees). Up to this point I have only been doing 20-30 minutes of yoga, because I know that is what my body can handle. But doing this yoga class (which was an hour), I could tell that I went too hard, and I knew I was going to be sore. (Sometimes my Crossfit mentality comes back, thinking I can do way more than I should, which sometimes is true, but in the case of this yoga class that was constantly flowing and moving, my body wasn’t quite ready to handle it.) The class was at 1pm which messed up my eating schedule a bit, so I just made adjustments where it was necessary. Life happens, you figure out how to make it work for you. So I ate my snacks first and then my lunch salad and steamed asparagus around 4pm. My body went through a lot during this class and didn’t recover like I wanted it too.

Starting on Day 4 my body now had the opportunity to get rid of the junk that still resides in my system, except doing this yoga class set me back. One because of the adrenaline that came with me pushing myself too hard, and two because once my body was starting to get rid of the junk into my blood stream to be expelled from my body (to be filtered by the liver or kidneys) which made some symptoms come back temporary. My body could not detox the old stuff, and deal with the new adrenaline at the same time. With all the junk and adrenaline in my blood stream my liver and kidneys could only do so much, so its first task was to help my body with the recovery from the workout and soreness that came the next day. And I was more sore than I had been in a long time. With that being said, my body was not sore the second day. Usually I would be sore for 3-4 days after something like that. My body only needed a full 24 hours of recovery this time. That tells me my body is already in a better state to heal itself.

Second, I am pretty sure, during my Day 8 Spinach Soup, I ate some spinach that was bad. The next couple of days my body did not feel great. This could either be from the bad spinach, or these could have been a detox symptoms, but I mostly think it was from the spinach. Day 9 I felt really good all morning, after the lemon water, celery juice, 1st cucumber-apple juice, and then I drank orange juice the rest of the day. But later on in the evening I started to not feel so great.

Third, Day 9 it is supposed to be a rest day, meaning rest and don’t do anything too taxing for your body. Be grateful for all that your body is doing for you at this time. I did not rest like I planned to do. I started feeling weak towards the end of the day, which I knew I should’ve taken more time to heal. In the middle of the night after Day 9, I got a terrible stomach ache, like ones that I use to have when I was younger. It brought back so many memories of me just curled in a ball hoping I wasn’t going to puke. I had forgotten what those stomach aches use to feel like, since it’s been so long since I’ve had one. The next day I felt off and not great, going through bouts of stomach aches and nauseousness.

I have learned some lessons for my next adventure into another 369 Cleanse. Overall, I feel better after this one, now that I no longer have the stomach aches and nauseousness (it only took a few days to get rid of). I noticed that my bloating went away during this cleanse (which is the cover picture). I forgot how expensive and time consuming this cleanse can be, but it is 100% worth it. I fully believe that this way of eating has changed my life immensely, more than I even realize. Even though I felt crappy for a few days after, today I feel good, and maybe it’s because I finally got back on the Heavy Metal Detox smoothie or maybe it’s because this cleanse really has helped my health, I think both contributed. I do this cleanse to help up my healing within my body, and whats the harm in eating more raw fruits and vegetables in abundance? These 9 days have flown by, and now I am transitioning out of the cleanse and taking it slow.

Anthony William has said the healing journey is 3 steps forward, 2 steps back. And it’s so true, with anything in life. I’ve noticed huge leaps in healing, but I have also noticed setbacks as well. Just know that whatever journey you are on in your life, 3 steps forward, 2 steps back. Things are going to happen that you may not have expected, but it’s how you deal with them, how you stay positive and have faith, that everything is working out for you. Because the universe is always working in your favor.

Much Love,
CLD
