Y’all I have some funny stories to share with you about a dear friend of mine. They’re quite comical if you ask me and yes I have permission to share these stories. You see my friend is really passionate about her health, especially moving into 2020, and she got a little too enthusiastic about her regimen. She discovered that her body was wanting mud masks to pull toxins out of her body, dry brushing to get her lymphatic system working well, and several essential oils to help with her dry skin issues.
She went ahead and…
…ordered what she needed and very excitedly dry brushed, put her mud mask on, and for good measure went ahead and did an ionic foot bath at the same time. What all of that did was overload her system by pulling out all of the toxins through the mud mask and foot detox bath and she felt completely hung over for the rest of the day. Oops!
Fast forward a couple of weeks and this same friend now knows that her body is wanting supplements in the form of flax seed oil, cod liver oil, and Senna tea because she’s not pooping regularly. She quickly placed an amazon order and got her goodies in a few days. She immediately and enthusiastically took the flax seed and cod liver oil capsules and drank a cup of Senna tea. She was feeling really good about the new things she was incorporating into her routine. In fact she was feeling great, until a couple of hours later when the supplements and tea kicked in and she proceeded to have diarrhea for 24 straight hours. Y’all it even woke her up three times in the night! Hah! Needless to say she started this new year off with a bang!
Incorporating new supplements, oils, and routines into your daily life is a GOOD thing! But it might be a good idea to incorporate them one at a time so as not to shock your entire system. What new things are you incorporating into your daily routine this year?
