I just completed a 1.5 day fast with water and fruit that ended this evening. I wanted to make use of this Virgo New Moon period to cleanse my body and mind.
It's amazing what 'comes up' physically and emotionally and mentally when you go through a fast. It's a great experience - letting your digestion catch up with you for one. Fruit is a cleanser, it doesn't feed you so much as clean out of you that which doesn't belong inside, for optimum health.
Of course, I did snack on some chocolate this evening but all good things deserve a reward, right?
With my vegetarian diet, I'm usually in tip-top condition thankfully. So this cleansing was a gentle one - although I did notice an outbreak on my face (minor) and some stomach discomfort (not so minor) as my body used the fruit to expel toxins.
How is your new health plan going?
