So last week I completed a 3 day water cleanse where I drank only Kangen water for 72 hours. I did this ‘fast’ to detoxify my body ~ as I recently visited an amazing Ayurvedic Lady who told me that my body was full of toxicity. I also love the feeling of absolute clarity you gain from doing a cleanse like this. I wrote about my experience every day ~ on the day! To give you a truly HONEST account of what a water cleanse really entails ~ I’m a scorpio so honesty is everything to me. Anyway I hope this inspires you to complete one of these, because on the last day I felt on top of the world and I want you to feel that feeling for yourself ~ its truly unique.

'The MANY Benefits of Water Fasting’ 



Tuesday ~ DAY ONE

Today was surprisingly ok ~ I woke up and cleaned my tongue with a spoon and oh my god so gross! There was a LOT of white stuff ~ (which were toxins) coming out! I drank around 2 litres of water throughout the day and somehow managed to get through the whole day at work! Although I did have to leave the room when someone sat next to me eating chicken with her hands ~ more that I find it repulsive to hear other people eating rather than being hungry (I have misphonia). I haven’t actually felt that hungry yet, I have definitely had less energy than normal and wasn’t as tolerant of people as I usually am ~ I got annoyed inside super quickly and felt aggravated by people and loud noises! - but I managed to control my mind which I am proud of myself for.

I think I got through the day by keeping positive and when I looked at the clock I felt a sense of achievement that I had almost completed my first day. I did have a few thoughts of quitting when I was driving home ~ I wanted to buy cap cay which is like my favourite spicy vegetable noodle soup!

I did have a few negative thoughts like ‘why am I putting myself through this?’ ~ but I kept myself motivated by realising that I only have 2 days left and this time tomorrow I will be over half way!

Some tips I would recommend is mixing up how you drink your water ~ today I had bottled kangen water but then at work I drank hot water all day and when I felt really low on energy I did cheat and have one green tea!

It was strange when I got home as I would usually eat and work on something on my laptop so today I put on some music and started writing this ~ as I was writing a relaxing reiki song came on shuffle so I did a bit of yin yoga.

I don’t feel that comfortable ~ but I hope that tomorrow it will all get easier as the final day approaches! I just need to keep focused, motivated and stay calm!

Wednesday ~ DAY TWO

Arghh! Today was crazy. So I woke up at 5am (the nearby mosque woke me up), I managed to get a couple more hours sleep but when I woke up again I felt SO ILL. I was shaking and felt really lightheaded whenever I moved. I managed to drink some hot water and then had to lie down again! I was SO low on energy and I wasn't sure if I could make it to work.

I did a little self reiki session and then managed to have a shower and get ready and actually felt ok again - until when I was leaving the house I suddenly felt completely nauseous and boiling hot ~ like I was about to feint! I decided that maybe I should eat an apple (as I had to drive to work) - but as I was about to eat this apple I was suddenly sick everywhere! It was just black (so disgusting I know) - it was the rest of the toxins leaving my body. Afterwards I felt so much better and I didn’t even have to eat the apple which I am happy about!

Work today was HARD ~ I had zero energy and had to teach 4 x 120 minute classes which I did not find easy! The only thing that kept me going was that everyone around me was fasting also, (they cant even drink water ~ so I felt like if they could do it I could!) It was someones birthday today so there was CAKE right next to my desk ~ which surprisingly made me feel really sick looking at it (all the additives and sugar) I didn’t want to fill my newly clean body with that crap!

I kept looking at the clock and felt incredibly happy when 9pm came ~ HOME TIME! I suddenly had so much energy and felt so proud of myself for making it through another day. I thought to myself I’ve already done 2 whole days! Just one more to go! Today was super tough but I really think the toxins in my body have truly GONE and now its just down to surviving the final day! I’m so excited to see the results and I think the worst is definitely well and truly over.



Thursday ~ DAY THREE

Last day AH! I could not sleep last night until 2am and I woke up at 6am! I think when your body has no food to process you really save so much energy. I felt extremely nauseous again and thought about quitting ~ but I did some more research on fasting online and felt motivated again. I did have to cheat a little today and have a tiny sip of diet coke ~ my blood sugar was way too low and I felt like I was going to feint.

The day was ok I felt weak at some points but then I would have so much energy at others. Its definitely been the easiest of the 3 days and I could probably carry on if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m super hungry now. I think my body has eliminated all the toxins and Im ready to start eating again.

However I am going to be REALLY conscious of what Im putting into my body now ~ I don’t want to waste all my hard work. I will break the fast with a spicy vegetable soup thing ~ its basically a mix of boiled green vegetables, spinach, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, cabbage, chilli and garlic in a miso style sauce. Its super fresh and healthy ~ although I’m not sure I should eat chilli straight away, but I live in Lombok, Indonesia and am completely addicted to chilli! ‘Lombok’ even means Chilli!

I have to say this fast was easier than my last 2 ~ even though I was working full time, but I think the key is to stay in complete control of your thoughts. If your mind wanders just check yourself and don’t let it!

Anyone can do this fast ~ however I really recommend starting with a 24 hour fast and working your way up, as my first ever fast was for 5 days and it was so tough!


Friday ~ THE DAY AFTER 

Oh my GOD ~ I feel AMAZING. Treated myself to a facial and went for a beautiful breakfast I had a berry smoothie and fresh fruit salad it was DIVINE. All I want is fresh healthy colourful food. My thoughts are crystal clear ~ I feel totally happy and SUPER healthy. My work clothes are loose I have lost weight ~ my stomach is completely flat and I have SO much energy. I recommend fasting to anyone ~ JUST BECAUSE OF THIS FEELING. Do it.
