Master Cleanse Day 1


Spring is here.. Time for some good ole spring cleaning right! I'm not just talking about cleaning around the house or your garage, we need to clean our mind and our body. The master cleanse rids our body of toxins and gives us a "fresh start"!
Join me on my journey!

I took it easy today being that my body is in the 1st stage of detoxification.



oh.. here is what happens during stage one :

Stage 1 (Day 1 To Day 2) On the first day of fasting, the blood sugar level drops below 70 mg/dl. To restore the blood to the normal glucose level, liver glycogen is converted to glucose and released into the blood. This reserve is enough for half a day. The body then reduces the basal metabolic rate (BMR). The rate of internal chemical activity in resting tissue is lowered to conserve energy. The heart slows and blood pressure is reduced. Glycogen is pulled from the muscle causing some weakness. The first wave of cleansing is usually the worst.

Headaches, dizziness, nausea, bad breath, glazed eyes and a heavily coated tongue are signs of the first stage of cleansing. Hunger can be the most intense in this period unless the enema is used which quickly assists the body into the fasting state by ending digestion in the colon.

Well I didn't do an enema (don't think I ever will lol) but the hunger wasn't all that bad today luckily. Had a slight headache though, and was on the sleepy side most of the day.
