Today’s post highlights how my healing journey began, in July of 2016, and explains the 28 Day Healing Cleanse that so radically altered my health and my life.
I love how life flows and the Divine guides me to the right actions to take. I came across Anthony William on Facebook a couple of years ago. I’ve benefitted from his posts concerning health, taking note especially of his insights on healing from what he calls mysterious illnesses, including chronic pain and inflammation.
It was no coincidence that I was aware of Anthony at a time in which physical issues from a long ago car accident worsened. After the accident in 1995, doctors said that in 20 years my condition would rapidly deteriorate. I didn’t want to believe that. And yet in the fall of 2015, right on cue it seemed, I began using a cane to walk. After six months of increased pain, physical therapy, massage and energy work from my friend Margit helped me to walk without aid again, most of the time. However, I was concerned, especially when my right leg began to worsen as well. I searched for ways to bring further healing to my damaged back and legs.
Which brought me back to Anthony William. I saw his post about drinking celery juice first thing every morning, to restore digestive health and bring balance and healing into my body in numerous ways. I have been amazed at what this daily practice has shifted in my overall well being.
Encouraged to know more and go further, I bought Anthony’s book, Medical Medium. I finished the book, eager to begin the 28 day healing cleanse, as described within. I made careful notes, about what I could eat and when, and what herbs and supplements to include.
It was very simple, really. For the next 28 days, I only ate fresh fruits, dates and raw vegetables…green vegetables primarily. I eliminated meat, sugar, gluten, dairy products, eggs, soy and corn. Using a juicer and a blender, I enjoyed celery juice in the mornings, plus fruit and veggie smoothies, and chopped salads throughout the day. No, it wasn’t how I normally ate. And that was the problem. My body needed a break from its usual fare so that toxins and heavy metals could be released, and health restored.
I was excited. I was hopeful. I became dedicated to creating the best possible version of myself, which included being healthy, active and pain free.
The first three days on the cleanse, I was a little low energy, as my body began to release toxins, and I had a headache. However, by day four, my energy came up, the headache was gone, and amazing changes were occurring. By the end of the first week, my mobility had increased and my pain decreased to the point that I parked my cane in a corner of the bedroom and have not used it since.
Anthony William says, “We eat things our systems don’t appreciate, indulge in foods to comfort our emotions rather than feed our bodies and souls. As we seek out snacks, meals, beverages and desserts that keep emotions at bay, our bodies become the victims of our soul damage. We get confused and cross the line between what we like to eat and what our bodies need.”
For the first time in my life, I listened to what my body needed, and to the guidance I was given, at a soul level. I am not sorry. The 28 Day Healing Cleanse began my healing process, allowed me to take back control of my health and changed the quality of my life.
I’ll be sharing in future blog posts about the next steps that I took, after the cleanse, and what I have discovered about thriving and healing on a plant based diet. To learn more about Anthony William, and his books, Medical Medium and Life Changing Foods, visit his website www.medicalmedium.com
