Sore throat, headache, sniffles...hmmm

I woke up this morning with the most intense sore throat. I haven't had one of those since that time I came down with a flu that kept me home for a week. My nose is partly stuffed, partly runny, kind of like having a cold and I'm very lethargic today.
But it's definitely NOT a cold. It is definitely a detoxing phase. There is a HUGE difference. I hope it's gone by morning though. The appearance of my personal 'low' seems to have coincided with the low pressure system that has moved in off shore. (I'm in Vancouver, BC btw) But that may be just coincidence.
My hands are awfully dry today. Well, they have been for awhile, but particularly today. I wonder if it's caused by too much cayenne? I know it's not because I don't drink enough water. I've had almost 96 ozs today alone.
I've been taking the trace minerals as well and haven't seen anything yet, but I suspect it's because the 'low' is overriding any good feelings I might be having.
My fingernails are growing at an INCREDIBLE rate. I have to cut them ever couple of days now so that I don't hurt anyone at Karate.
My mom brought over a food dehydrator today. A rather large thing with 5 different levels. But there's not instruction manual so I'm at a loss of where to start. I want to start making beef jerky for when I come off this cleanse, it will be my snack food for my new paleo diet.
I haven't quite decided exactly when I'm coming off this cleanse. I have enough Laxative tea for another 5 days (I could get more but it would be a good stopping point I suppose). But I obviously can't do it yet as 'one should not stop on a low'.
Dang. This could take another week. I'm starting to dream of food too now. Last night I dreamt of a chocolate mousse dessert made with melted chocolate and 'Silken' Tofu. (I saw it on the food channel last night too).
I think I read somewhere here on the boards where someone made their own hair cleaner using baking soda and apple cider vinegar. I think I'm going to try that in the next few days. As soon as I find that particular recipe again.
Current weight: 181.5/171.0 still.
Anyway. It's late and I have to work tomorrow. Blast it all.
