This Detox Challenge is 18 days long and will end March 31. You can start when you are ready — it doesn’t have to be on the first day, today, March 14. Depending upon what you choose to do, you may need a few days or even a week to prepare broths and fermented foods for your detox. You may also do the challenge for only a few days. It is really flexible and totally up to what you want to do.
I have suggested the GAPS intro diet as a good form of detox and it is. However, there are other ways to detox your body which I will list in tomorrow’s post, along with a Detox Challenge Linky. These other ways are perfectly acceptable and encouraged. As I said before, this is a really flexible challenge — you can start with GAPS intro and stay on the first few stages for as long as you want, or you can breeze right through them. You can incorporate other detox methods along with the GAPS intro or you can do them after you finish the intro.
I plan to use several other detox methods, which are also encouraged by Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride and others, as I go along. This is a challenge of exploration. If you are not liking the method you picked, you may certainly stop. You may want to then choose another method to use.
Be aware that any detox protocol may initiate a die off reaction. This would be characterized by any number of symptoms, like digestive symptoms, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, etc. You may try to work through it, as it will pass, or, if it is too bothersome, try to move onto the next stage by having some more advanced foods.
Tomorrow I will list some other methods of detoxification along with the Detox Challenge Linky. I hope you will all share some of your experiences with detox protocols and also share some great recipes for foods, juices and methods that are appropriate for a detox program.
