I started my annual (mostly annual) cleanse yesterday I had been procrastinating for the last month, as I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, and had not made the 20 minute trip to the local health food store to get the remaining items. As it turns out the local store I had in mind had closed its doors back in November. I then remembered another store almost right next door to my gym They, too, had closed their doors. Thus, I was forced to my Android Google Maps app, and found another store, apparently the last brick and mortar legit health food and herb store in my area (i.e., not a GNC or Vitamin Shoppe). Google Maps also apparently feels that CVS and Walgreens are health food stores.
Peachtree Health Foods, had the Parafree equivalent, ParaResponse, bulk psylliym husk fiber (though generic Metamucil will do in a pinch) which I was lacking. I still have a good stash of bentonite clay and Senna tea.
With the change from Parafree to ParaResponse, I made a couple of tweaks to my 2012 cleanse recipe. It is still broken into three 10 day phases, with the following tweaks in the Parafree capsules. I made these changes purely for economic reasons. The bottle at $24 had 90 pills. To make the 90 pills last 30 days.
First 10 days follow the recipe as before except:
- Days 1-5 Take one capsule each morning
- Days 6-10 Take two capsules each morning (15 capsules)
Second 10 days all the same except:
- Days 11-15 Take two capsules each morning and one each evening
- Days 16-20 Take two each morning and two each evening (35 capsules, 50 total)
Third 10 days: Maintain the same protocol two in the morning and two in the evening (40 capsules, 90 total)
Keep all other aspects of the protocol the same as described in my earlier post
Some modicum of prior planning could save you a lot of money, time and aggravation by shopping for and ordering your ingredients online.
