A few weeks ago, a friend called me and asked if I want to give a 7-day detox program a trial run. My immediate response was, “No lah! Siao ah? I heard they shit non-stop, you know?”
I imagined being stuck to the toilet bowl for days and on the seventh day, the Jabatan Bomba and 991 have to come to my home to pry me away because I have grown roots. There was this woman in US who sat on her toilet bowl for two years and her skin grown and stick to the toilet. Serious!
So, my friend pushed further…..
“Sure you don’t want? This stuff is quite expensive, you know? And I heard effective as well. Some said they lost a bit of weight as well.”
And that’s how I got hooked. Lost weight? “Ok….., maybe……. cincai lah. Just to help you out only. But what if I die shitting?”
And the friend replied, “Then, you will be the first person to die shitting. Can become famous, wei. Blogger dead due to shit.”
That’s how I got myself into this 7-day detox program. It turned out to be some very tangy and lemony drink only. Chey….so easy, nia. On the first day, I make some nice orange and banana blend and drank it with the detox.
And I wait
And I wait….
I was expecting something to happen, like a volcano erupting or something. But luckily, things were not so dramatic.
The hubby and kids are already sniggering at my gung-ho “I am on a detox program” new focus. Hubby joked with me if I want to use the baby’s potty and take photos of the shit, day by day. I shrieked, “Ewwss…you want to inspect them?” And my kids said, “Do lah mommy! You can blog it too.”
Today is day four. And I do not get any one of those scary stuffs we heard about detox program! I suppose my usual eating habits, the last 40-days vegetarian diet and my slow transition did not cause too much upsets. Although they have a booklet on suggested diet, one does not have to follow it. I didn’t because the hubby and kids are dragging me everywhere to eat. Temptation is too strong.
However, I do know that detox is working on me. On the first day, I got this metallic taste in my mouth and according to the booklet, it says when our body is releasing toxins from the liver during liver detox, we will get coated tongue. At first, I didn’t know that and kept gargling with mouth wash until I checked the guide book. On the second day, I get a slight headache and fell asleep by midnight. It doesn’t make me run to the toilet but it does make me pee like a cow. Now, on the fourth day, my body is probably flushing all the toxins through my sweat, pee and poo.
These two days, I am already active enough to go for a hike at the dam (photos in previous post) and ate some durians. So, all in all, it has been gentle on me. But I hope at the end of the seventh day, I do get what I want from this detox program. I will have glowing skin, lighter self, more energetic, looks younger, trimmer and most of all, I want to get rid of those toxins that stay dormant and hidden in my body with Juvanex. I like the ingredients – Blessed Milk Thistle and Dandelion. I read that those are good herbs for liver cleansing. You can check out Juvanex on their website http://www.myjuvanex.com/.
So who wants to join me on my pangsai adventure ah?
