Day 6 of the Master Cleanse

| No Comments

Last Monday after Cay left for DC I went to work and found myself thinking about doing the "Master Cleanse."

I've had friends (Ted, Manya, Adam, Tracy, others) tell me about their experiences with it and I thought it might help me with my eczema. So I decided since Cay was away and I was working 7 out of the 10 days required to be on the cleanse this would be an opportune time to pursue this endeavor with the least amount of impact on Cay. I made the mistake of not telling her about it until day 5 (yesterday, Friday) because I thought she would convince me that it was unhealthy and foolish. Upon my admission she got very upset with me for keeping it a secret and in hindsight of course I should have told her about it from the beginning.

Anyhoo I've been keeping with the regimen of the cleanse. I mix up some lemonade in the morning with maple syrup and cayenne pepper and along with mint tea, sea salt purges, and a laxative tea I have already seen some amazing things in the toilet bowl. I've also experienced a heightening of my senses and my skin has indeed cleared up quite a bit.

Day 4 on Wednesday was the worst since the night before I hadn't slept very well and I was in the middle of a difficult work week at Warner Brothers. Some of my co-workers were pretty worried about me since I looked gray. I felt much better the next day and today was also a good one. Cay thinks I should have waited for a hiatus from work but I chose to do it now since I think the distraction of work will keep me thinking of food and I can have the support of my peers instead of being home alone with temptation everywhere.

I've made it over the hump and I'm looking forward to next week when I'll have completed this journey and I can enjoy food, drink, and socializing more than ever. Our wine tasting on the 31st should be a cacophony of sensations for me.
