Detox Myth #1:
You’ll starve if you cleanse.
Cleansing is not a fast. Water fasting is so 1900′s. Now, we have blenders. We have juicers. Now, we have evolutionary enlightenment instead of simple austerity practices like not eating.
Plus, most of us are completely out of touch with hunger. We eat too frequently to feel a deeper fire burn. While you won’t starve if you cleanse, (unless you water fast for longer than Moses in the desert), you will ignite a deeper digestion. You need the strong fire to burn the toxins being released from the fabric of your tissue.
Detox Myth #2
Cleansing is all about what you’re eating or not eating.
This one is the kicker for me. Sure, changing your diet is an aspect of a cleanse. Equal aspects are:
- Emptying your life of what isn’t important anymore.
- Upgrading your daily rhythms in line with earth-based rhythms.
- Discovering real energy from plant nutrients (hopefully some local and wild).
- Waking up your bliss, your potential, and your call to action.
