Day 19 was eventful. I marathon watched major flooding in
Houston on television. Houston is just down the road from me.
It was a main topic among the neighbors, some who called, one
who came to visit. It was coming up like a "comma" and circling
back to head towards us. The rain began in the late evening but
we were more in the feeder bands again and so Brenham got the
most of it. Overnight, some places got 14 inches of rain, and
Here, the gardens look great and its nice to see everything
greening up again. The rain really amped my wheatgrass patch
and I have been harvesting but it is really getting tall and
is thick and emerald green. The juice is divine. I think I will
add some to my bath tonight as a real treat.
I also had some substantial gut spasms, from my hefty dosing
of cayenne in my lemonade. I am hoping it is normal but hoping
too there will not be too many repeating episodes of belly clutching!
My experiment, encouraged by Detour, is working and this morning,
day 20, my morning throne time was incredibly productive. I almost
think if I am still having this amount of stuff coming out at day
30 I should consider going on although right now I am reluctant to
imagine that preferring to envision the break on Saturday July 1
and blissing out on orange juice!
In between the cloud rolling, the sun came out so I was able to
get out and sun which did much to recharge my batteries. It did
not last long, but long enough to really feel better. I began to
wonder if there were not a correlation between my sunbathing time
and feeling good and since we have had rain for these days past,
I have had days which were not as good as others.
My main distraction of the day was discovering during my shower,
a growing boil right on top of my head!! Time to get out the
pointed hat as I find myself continually touching it to see if
it is is growing or going away!! It has grown over the past hours,
about the size of a large pea now. Better out than in, I remind
myself, but a honker pimple on the top of my head is not the place
I really wanted it to come out at...ggg.
Otherwise, sure nice to see so many happy face stickers on my
calender. My cleanse will be over so soon...time sure has flown!!
This cleanse has been so easy that I can only imagine that I am
living better than I was so there was less detoxing to do. I have
still been using my zapper, body-brushing every day, and using my
bounce chair, chi machine and body blade. Once my energy surges
again, I will get back to weight lifting.
Woke up the morning of my 20th feeling really good. I have a
massage client coming this morning so I did not mess around
getting my SWF down and my lemonade down. Got all my chores
done in record time and am settled in to face my lemonade with
extra cayenne. It does not taste as neat as it does with less
cayenne but with only 10 days to go, I want to maximize the
benefits. I thought today, if my belly begins to ache, I will
get out my thermophore fomenting pad. May even find the time
to do a castor oil pack and really shake up the belly.
Today I am also going to use something I received as a Christmas
gift that I rediscovered in organizing my closet! They are
transdermal essential oil patches by Naturopatch. The essential
oil is lemongrass and is supposed to help with energy and focus!
I have used them for driving on all day hunting and foraging in
the big city, but who knows what effects it may have on a cleanse.
I do so love doing experimentation! Well, safe stuff...certainly
nothing explosive although it could be argued the SWF can be at
Well, time to go ready my table and pick out some music for a
massage session. I like Badger Oil and most likely I will be
listening to Dean Evenson's Ocean Dreams.
My thought to share for the day~~~
"Treasure your physical being as a vehicle that houses your soul.
Once you have the inner way, the outer way will follow."
I hope all my other fasting buddies have a great day!
be happy, be well,
Here are directions for how to make a castor oil pack!
Simple procedure for detox and cleansing~
Castor oil has a long history of traditional medical use
dating back to ancient Egypt. Derived from the castor bean
(Ricinus communis), the oil was once used internally as a
laxative but is now primarily used externally due to its
How it works
A castor oil pack is placed on the skin to increase circulation
and to promote elimination and healing of the tissues and organs
underneath the skin. It is used to stimulate the liver, relieve
pain, increase lymphatic circulation, reduce inflammation, and
How it is made
Castor oil packs are made by soaking a piece of flannel in castor
oil and placing it on the skin. The flannel is covered with a
sheet of plastic, and then a hot water bottle is placed over the
plastic to heat the pack.
A castor oil pack can be placed on the following body regions:
The right side of the abdomen to stimulate the liver. Castor oil
packs are often recommended as part of a liver detox program.
Inflamed and swollen joints, bursitis, and muscle strains.
The abdomen to relieve constipation and other digestive disorders.
The lower abdomen in cases of menstrual irregularities and
uterine and ovarian cysts.
Castor oil should not be taken internally. It should not be
applied to broken skin, or used during pregnancy, breastfeeding,
or during menstrual flow.
Three layers of undyed wool or cotton flannel large enough to
cover the affected area
Plastic wrap cut 1-2" larger than the flannel (can be cut from a
Hot water bottle or heating pad
Container with lid
Old clothes and sheets. Castor oil will stain clothing and
1. Place the flannel in the container. Soak it in castor oil
so that it is saturated, but not dripping.
2. Place the pack over the affected body part.
3. Cover with plastic.
4. Place the hot water bottle or heating pad over the pack.
Leave it on for 45-60 minutes. Rest while the pack is in place.
5. After removing the pack, cleanse the area with a dilute
solution of water and baking soda.
6. Store the pack in the covered container in the refrigerator.
Each pack may be reused up to 25-30 times.
Frequency of use
It is generally recommended that a castor oil pack be used for
3 to 7 days in a week to treat a health condition or for detox.
