Spring Means Parasite Cleansing

Spring is here and, boy, am I glad! I seriously need sunlight to feel good. Spring brings us flowers and sunshine and makes everyone think of parasite cleansing. Wait.. what? hahaha. Just kidding. #butseriouslytho

Actually, I HAVE been thinking that spring is the time to do a parasite cleanse.

After reading an article about how in Traditional Chinese Medicine each season represents one of the Five Elements: fire, earth, metal, water and wood. And since we mirror nature, each of these elements corresponds with an organ system in the body…

An example:
Fire = summer | the heart + small intestine
Earth = late summer | the stomach
Metal = autumn | the lungs + large intestine
Water = winter | the kidneys + bladder
Wood = spring | the liver + gallbladder

“Spring is a time of rebirth, sudden growth, and rapid expansion. We now find the will to initiate and execute projects that have been contemplated, but not yet begun. Spring is creative, volatile, and powerful and so are we as we enter this phase in our annual cycle. The organ that represents this season is the Liver, tasked in Traditional Chinese Medicine with the job of instigating movement and arousing the mind by allowing tension and pressure to build. If the liver is out of balance, we can feel angry, irritable, frustrated, and stuck.”

I realized that NOW was the perfect time to do my parasite cleanse! I’ve been meaning to do it now for awhile, but it never felt like a good time. Either I was missing parts of my cleanse ingredients or I had an event coming up that I didn’t want to have cleanse bloat for…every time I managed to talk myself out of doing the cleanse.

But for some reason ever since it has been sunny outside and spring has been in the air.. I all of a sudden want to do everything I’ve been putting off (including the dreaded parasite cleanse!).

So. Now I’m mentally ready to kick.this.thing.in.the.keister! Booya!

{I already know I have liver issues (and possibly gallbladder issues), but in keeping with the Dr. Hulda way, I will complete the parasite cleanse first before I move on to kidneys and then liver/gallbladder. So while Spring may equal liver/gallbladder..I might be doing those in the summer}

The first time I did this cleanse I didn’t finish. I found out about the cleanse for the first time from my fellow coach and friend Lindsay Stay. She herself was going through some health issues and had done a lot of research trying to get her health under control. I already knew from participating in a sugar detox group with her that we were kindred spirits (and holistic divas) so when she posted about creating a group to do the parasite cleanse with her I was ALL on board!

But unfortunately I did not properly prepare for the cleanse and did not buy enough of the tincture and ran out after just two weeks. Then life as it does, got in the way.

But what I learned from the experience (and the group) was invaluable. And I’m better prepared this time!

Things I learned:

  1. You need enough tincture to do the FULL cleanse (and possibly several rounds of the cleanse)
  2. The tincture we all bought tastes terrible!! Gag!
  3. The bentonite clay and phsyllum husks, while it may protect you from toxic buildup, is very constipating and most of the group experienced severe bloating (and complained of looking very pregnant because of it!)
  4. The first three days are extremely hard, but after day three you start to feel euphoric and have great clarity and energy!

 

This time I will do the cleanse a little differently. I decided to try TriLightHealth‘s parasite cleanse to see if it is just as beneficial as Dr. Hulda’s cleanse protocol.

I found out about TriLightHealth through the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. One of the bonuses of purchasing the bundle was to try a free 2oz. sample of one of TriLightHealth’s products. I opted to try the Liver Cleanse, LivCare, because it said something about complextion. After using the whole 2oz. I found my skin to be completely clear even during my cycle and feel the product worked great and it TASTES GREAT! Like wow! Really tastes great.

So I thought if their WormOut has the same ingredients needed as Dr. Hulda’s protocol, and it tastes WAY better…. Why the heck not, right! So this round will be with the parasite kit from TriLight. Which uses 10 days of Kyolic Garlic Capsules precleanse and NOW Gr8-Dophilus Probiotics. Since Dr. Hulda’s protocol calls for psyllium husks as a fiber to get the bowels moving, and I found the psyllium and bentonite clay to be very constipating. I thought I would take a fiber capsule that has a psyllium husk free fiber source. I’ll be using FiberSMART capsules (which also have probiotics in them, so, bonus).
