I'm currently in the middle of the Colon Cleanse from Blessed Herbs, a 9-day cleansing program that removes mucoid plaque from your colon. Sounds lovely, right? [insert heavy sarcasm] Yeah, mucoid plaque may be disgusting, but the way I figure it, I'd rather get it out then let is stay in my body. So, out it must come...haven't seen any yet, but I'm still early in the cleanse.
Right now I'm swimming in the liquid fast portion of the cleanse. Apple juice psyllium drink, herbal digestive stimulator supplements, warm broth, and herbal tea pretty much summarizes what I'm allowed to consume at the moment. It may sound awful, but honestly, it isn't bad. I feel much better than I thought I would, and am enjoying the apple juice and broth plan quite a bit. The first few days of the pre-cleanse (where food is allowed but slowly reduced) were actually harder for me than the liquid part of this fast, which surprises me greatly. And I'm definitely noticing some very positive cleansing effects on my colon. I'll skip the gory details and leave it at that for now.
Once I'm done, I plan on writing up a review and summary of my experiences with this cleansing kit. In the meantime, I want to share a broth recipe with you. This broth is really tasty and is currently the highlight of my day. Perhaps my food deprived existence at the moment sways my judgement a bit, but truly, this broth is bomb. It tastes very fresh, very green, and it makes you feel warm, satisfied and nourished. Yum! And best yet, it was very simple to make. I've made similar broths before just to have around when I'm feeling in need of something cleansing, but I think I hit the nail on the head with this combination.
