Oh my!!!! And to think I held on to what was to be my most revitalizing experience ever. My recipe for a guaranteed sweat it out detox bath.
For 3 weeks I patiently waited for the moment when I had the ingredients, 20 minutes minimum required time, the quiet atmosphere, and a clean kitchen to sink myself guilt free into my potion of restoration. I opened up the faucet of my king size whirlpool and let the water flow as hot as it would come per instruction. I emptied first my jar of pharmacy bought Epsom salt, continued on with Baking Soda and closed with fresh ginger. Simple, easy. Hot, stinky.
The bath itself was actually quite uneventful. I fought to keep myself in the steaming bath with water dripping walls for the full 20 minutes. What I didn’t expect were the days that followed.
I have never in my life felt so awful! It was as if everything toxic went it, instead of coming out.
My head pounded for days, my bladder introduced me to a new level of pain. I countered the detox attack with thousands upon thousands of milligrams of Vitamin C, Cranberry pills, uva ursina, green tea, white tea and as a last resort….drank the baking soda mixed with a few shots of apple cider vinegar. Slept, woke, and visited the bathroom umpteen times in between.
Today, 1 week later I am fine again. I am back to drinking my wine that I so enjoy but feverishly tried to pull out of my body- back to enjoying an after dinner drink and by no means will ever “detox” again. Jesus must have turned water into wine for a reason. I have chosen to accept that. I have now found religion.
