(1) Continue eating a "clean" diet of 3 light meals a day and 2 healthy snacks. Goal is to avoid sugars and starchy carbs to keep my blood sugar stable throughout the day. Also trying not to combine carbs with proteins. Can combine veggies with protein and veggies with carbs sparingly:) Also avoiding dairy with the exception of a splash of cream in my coffee and my yogurt kefir probiotic drink. In addition, I have specific foods good for my blood type, which my naturopath feels to be important, as well as eating foods for my body type based on Ayurvedic medicine, another ancient modality. A close friend from high school, Dr. Claudia Welch went on to write a book "Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life", which combines western and eastern medicine and is a good read.
(2) Take advantage of the Sauna at my gym and use it 2-3x per week. Sweating is an effective way to release toxins and heavy metals as well as exercise. I'm continuing to spin (bike) 2x a week and do weight classes, cardio kick boxing and yoga as well. Feels good!
(3) I found a woman who does the ionic foot bath soaks and have had them weekly. It is amazing what comes out of your feet and this method of detox is one of the safest ways to cleanse because you don't run the risk of getting it out of your colon with whole body cleanses. Surprisingly, she says there are a lot of metal pieces coming out compared to most, so I am doing a good job!
(4) Colonics irrigation flush once per week for 3 weeks is also an effective way to release toxins and heavy metals. My naturopath has this service. In addition if I am able to do the green coffee enemas, they are effective to pull toxins directly out of the colon tissue:)
(5) Relaxation to calm the adrenals is important, so meditation is good before bed and I also found a acupuncture studio in my town that offers a $15 treatment for an hour! Very relaxing and effective for whatever you need on a given day. Some days I ask for detox points, or other days hormone balancing. This was also offered at Exeter Hospital for a lot more money, and I am thankful that the practitioner was able to remove all pain under my left arm and bring back much of the feeling in my breasts even after the double mastectomy and reconstruction:)
