Spring Cleanse

Today I begin my seasonal fast. I decided to forego the weekly fasts nearly four months ago when I transitioned to a 100% raw diet, but I may resume them next month. (The raw diet is going very well, but that's another story). My plan is to do the ten-day Master Cleanse, which I believe to be powerfully cleansing and somewhat pleasant, as fasts go. The longest I've gone is five days, and I now feel physically, psycologically and emotionally ready to go the distance. I also plan to blog about it daily, which should help me get through the toughest moments.

I've written about my residual "tumors" in past blogs and I may include images tomorrow and at the end of the fast for comparison. Without the work of digesting solid food, my body will spend the next ten days cleaning up waste, including these nodules. At least that's my hope.

The winter here in Detroit was bitterly cold and the spring has been very chilly, making fasting difficult. Today the weather is still very cool, but I don't want to put this off another day. So here I go. To read more about the benefits of fasting, click here to read my report:

Good luck with the MC. (By the way, I was born and raised in MI, now I live in AZ).
