I am sick again, another cold has struck with a vengeance a couple of days ago. This is about the fourth time since the school year began. Over the winter break I was the sickest, with asthmatic bronchitis. I am not usually a sickly person at all. I usually fight things off easily, so this is a little disturbing. I’m actually thinking about doing some sort of cleanse. I’ve felt sluggish and kind of foggy for a while, and this just tops it off. I wonder if anyone who reads this has any information about this sort of thing.
Some of the women in my book club are doing a 28 day cellular cleanse, a la Scott Ohlsgard (I think that is his name). I’m not sure where to begin, so may order his book to check it out. I’ve already looked for it at B&N and S&S, and will still check Lyon’s before I order it. Another possibility is a book called Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford. I guess since I have his huge book, I could start by reading that. (D’oh!) Maybe I should do a cleanse and then follow his dietary advice. I have to do some reading, it seems.
This cleansing idea seems like a commitment to discomfort (read giving up the food I love that is not so good for me), but what could be less comfortable than what I’m feeling now? I think I really need a detox of my whole system. I’m going to check it out and I’ll keep track of the process here. I promise to leave out any really gory details!
