So, excited to share that I have completed my first ever 21 day functional medicine detox & the benefits have been nothing short of amazing!
Why you might ask would one even consider doing such a thing & what exactly does it entail?
Just to give a little perspective on the liver, every 6 minutes the body's entire volume of blood is filter by this organ, every 6 minutes!
That just blows my mind how hard this organ works day in & day out. I have to be honest, I haven't done an awful lot to help lessen the daily burden & stress on this powerhouse of an organ in the past either! Based on the list below I should have done a Functional Medicine Detox a long time ago!
What about you?
I have been at the mercy of liver/gallbladder pain for over 2 1/2 years with multiple endoscopies, HIDA scans & labs all with the same results of " let's watch this, we'll wait & see " as my test results didn't fall within their specified parameters.
I am beyond ecstatic to share that after the first 2 shake days of this detox I haven't experienced any liver pains!
The first week of this detox was challenging, due to the fact that I was & still am dealing with several underlying issues. I purged a massive amount of toxins from my body in days 1-3. To the tune of 10 pounds of toxic water & mucous that was pushing out of my body from everywhere.
This actually brought about a major sinus infection but I believe it was just another phase of detoxification.
The difference is my body is significant since the detox. My body feels lighter, less bloating, no liver pain & my digestion seems to be functioning more optimally. I have also noticed that my skin is much clearer as I always struggle with acne & rashes to deodorants & sometimes even detergents. My mental clarity has improved
I am awaiting results of a mycotoxin test & I have just completed 5 additional functional lab tests in anticipation of getting some real answers to my health struggles.
I am beyond grateful for this detox!
I am also honored to have become an IHP student so that I may learn from myself & help others along the way.
