Man, am I out of shape. I do yoga, the beginners type, to stretch and feel at peace, meditating at the same time. But a few days ago, I went on line to find a good detox program that included many different items, like vitamins and minerals, teas, smoothies, juices, etc., to detox all the crap out of my system, and came across this detox yoga program that looked soooo simple… lol
I found out last week that most of my ailments, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pain in my back, knees, hips, hands of course, etc, and a chronic infection running through my entire body from using Asthma inhalers….are all links to why my arthritis is out of control and growing in leaps and bounds. ALL of which can be changed and healed through a holistic healthy LIVE-IT! (as opposed to a DIE-t) 😉
So today, while browsing again I discovered a detox program through yoga, that I had never heard of. It’s nothing very difficult for someone in shape, which I discovered I AM NOT!! I knew this, but I had no idea how OUT of shape I really am. I hike and kayak all summer long, yet nothing I was doing was helping any of my problems.
I only spent 15 minutes ATTEMPTING to do the poses, before I needed a nap. OMG…I was shocked at how I couldn’t do them. I kept falling over, totally out of balance, and wasn’t able to stretch like the fit and trim woman in the pictures. Not to mention, I am exhausted after only trying them….and failing badly! lol I couldn’t even hold the poses and breath, without stopping in between each one and resting.
This seems to be a great program, which did elevate my heart rate and cause me to sweat, which I hope to continue daily until I heal myself physically of all these ailments that have plagued me for some time.
This is the link for the detox yoga, and is supposed to be GREAT for Thanksgiving and Christmas gluttony!!! BUT keep in mind, you need to warm up with some regular yoga, like the morning sun salutation or core salutation workout first. Please don’t click on it just to see what a WIMP I am… lol
AND one other healthy tip I have discovered actually is working: I had no idea why I constantly have dark circles under my eyes and have since I was young. I get decent sleep most of the time, so when a nice new friend of mine who is a holistic teacher saw me, before she even said hello, she said “My, but you have serious digestive problems.” I of course do, because I have about 50 known allergies to food, (or I should say the crap they put in our food!!) and this causes havoc in my system constantly.. I asked how she knew this and she told me from the dark circles under my eyes.
Her answer to this: was simply add a teaspoon or two of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to 8 oz. water and drink each morning! Well, it tastes like shit, so I finally got some organic apple juice and added it to this, and YUMMY….I could drink it without puckering or reeking of vinegar. Also, I can add it to smoothies and don’t even taste it.
AND GUESS WHAT….MY DARK CIRCLES ARE ALMOST GONE!!! IT’S ONLY BEEN 3 DAYS!!! So there’s a beauty tip for you all, that is healthy too. The apple cider vinegar kills chronic infection in your digestive tract, which she said most people have from eating crap all day long, just like me. And this is what causes the dark circles, not sleep depravation!!!
just thought I’d share something healthy today!! enjoy! and a long healthy life to you all! 🙂
