Alkalizing and Energizing Benefits

I found a video on YouTube from Innerlight about SuperGreens and LL Prime pH and how they work together to alkalize your body and give more energy. Enjoy!

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 7

Finally, Day 7 of my alkalizing cleanse has come and almost gone...

I have been very busy this week at work planning for and getting a major conference ready for next week, so I have had a lot of errands, jobs, directing, thinking, decisions, phone calls, and little sleep over this cleanse.

But, to tell the truth, my energy level is terrific; my stress management and stress level are (unexpectedly) great; and my mood is very positive. I really am surprised.

I celebrated the end of my cleanse with a small sushi dinner--and SuperGreens!

It was great. More posts will come, but not one every day. Nevertheless, I did have positive feelings and results from this cleanse--forgot to mention that I had a total weight loss of nine pounds!--so look over the reasons for cleansing for yourself. Thanks!

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 6

Okay... got to make it quick tonight on Day 6!! (Can hardly believe it!)

Still feeling great and glad I am in the cleanse, but swamped for time because my work is putting on a huge conference and I have too little time today. Fortunately, I feel on top of my game in a way I haven't felt for years. I credit it to the SuperGreens and the cleanse, for sure. More tomorrow though!

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 5

Day 5 of the alkalizing cleanse has come and just about gone. Another busy day at work and it was easy to forget to pay attention to things. I started off with one liter of SuperGreens, but forgot to have anymore until after noon, and then it was only a half liter--but it was good and gave me a boost.

I got tempted by some soup that was not split-pea and not very much green pureed vegetables either. Even though my weight loss continued (I lost two more pounds as of this morning), one or two of them might be back by tomorrow. I guess time will tell.

So, I look at my posting here and think, what is going on?

No meditation today. So, now I've just mixed another liter of SuperGreens, and even though it's past 10:00pm here, I am going on a short meditation walk to get refocused and set myself a reminder in the morning to take stock again.

Even so, my mood feels more balanced and the stressful day at work mostly just rolled off my back.

Well, off to my walk, and Day 6 starts tomorrow.

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 4

Okay... wow. Day 4 of my alkalizing cleanse is here, and I completed it--still going strong!

Started the day right with another liter of SuperGreens and some fiber. Still using the dissolving fiber I got from the co-op, but my Fibrada Plus arrived, and I started using that, too. I've used Fibrada in the past, and it definitely gets the colon moving the toxins out--not harsh, but it gets the job done!

In case anybody is interested, here is the ingredient for Fibrada Plus: Rhubarb Root, Butternut Bark Root, Cascara Sagrada, Psyllium Seeds, Apple Pectin, Wheat Bran, Irish Moss, Bentonite, Dulse Leaf, Alfalfa, Parsley Leaves, Calcium Ascorbate, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Calcium Phosphate, Ferric Phosphate, Sodium Phosphate, Potassium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulphate.

I have also noticed other signs of detox, including a few skin eruptions, but this is natural and that usually happens to me when I detox, too.

At work, I feel like today could have been really stressful, but it was easier to handle than I expected, and I'm in a positive mood even though I had to work really late tonight (see the late entry? ...almost midnight and moving into Day 5!)

Finally, my weight loss continues... down another pound and a half this morning! I know some of it is just water and cleansing of the colon, but it's nice to see anyways.

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 3

Day 2 finished well and now here it is the end of Day 3... my first day at work on the alkalizing detox cleanse. I started off well enough with a liter of SuperGreens, per my habit of the past two days: Habits are built one day at a time, but actually I have drank a liter of SuperGreens most mornings for over ten years. The harder part is sustaining this throughout the day though.

Even with a good start, I could feel the stress later in the morning and a small, gnawing urge to eat.

However, I had meditated this morning and I strongly committed to achieving my alkaline balance over these seven days, so I think that made it easier to take stock of my emotions.
It became a simple decision: alkalize or acidify...

I decided to alkalize and just made the green drink. I did that two more times during the day at work, and that helped a lot. Without thinking about it too much, I noticed that I felt just a little bit friendlier and a little bit happier than in the past few weeks on my way home from work.

With my fourth liter of SuperGreens just now this evening, and another delicious split-pea soup (I think that's on the alkaline diet), I think this is working well. (Plus, I dropped another pound!)

I was also going to mention that InnerLight recommends LL Prime pH to help increase the alkalinity of the water mixed with SuperGreens; however, I remember Dr. Robert Young saying in past lectures that it is fine to mix in a few drops of lemon juice, which will also do the trick and save a few dollars.

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 2

Day 1 went without a hitch... Got a little hungry, but then I just kept thinking that this is a "shower from the inside!" and focusing on the results that will come: more energy, more health, more better!

Also, I woke up today with a 1.5 pound weight loss, which was nice to see as a little encouragement.

For the alkalizing cleanse, I drank four liters of SuperGreens yesterday, an afternoon and evening bowl of split-pea soup, and some liquid fiber I bought at my local co-op. This made for a nice "liquid feast" (remember, not a fast), as there are three guidelines for the cleanse:
  1. What you eat has to be green;
  2. What you eat has to be pureed or liquid; and
  3. You may eat as often as you like.
Forgot to say that my mix of green drink included the three scoops of SuperGreens and three scoops of the Organic Hemp Protein Powder but also one scoop of Clay Powder Earth Essence -- it has lots of minerals and also absorbs more toxins as I'm detoxifying.

I also listened to the Opening Cleanse Call for support and more information. It featured Dr. Robert O. Young, the developer of SuperGreens. Sounds like Days 2 or 3 tend to be the hardest for people, but so far today has been fine. I suspect that tomorrow will be harder because I will be back to work without the ease of having everything set up in my kitchen to keep to my cleanse.
Perhaps some morning meditation will be helpful along with listening to the second call in the series on the InnerLight website...

7-Day Alkalizing Cleanse with SuperGreens: Day 1

I have been thinking to do a SuperGreens cleanse for the past few weeks, and today is the day to start it.

Why today, instead of yesterday or tomorrow?
Because I can feel myself getting sick and tired, but mostly because I have stopped telling myself excuses not to do the cleanse...

"I'm too busy..."
"I'm too stressed and will forget and eat solid food anyways..."
"I have no will power..."
"I will miss my food..."
"I won't be able to socialize with friends..."
"I will have to run all over the place for lunch time looking for a juice bar..."

These and other things are basically little lies I have been telling myself to let myself off the hook and ignore my health. But I am confronting them as the lies they are...
They simply aren't true.

So, when I woke up today, I drank a liter of water mixed with a dash of lemon juice (to increase its alkalinity), three small scoops of SuperGreens (the ultimate alkalizing food) and three small scoops of Organic Hemp Protein Powder (because I plan to lift weights today and can use the protein and fiber).

I also had a cup of delicious coffee--not exactly alkalizing, but I plan to wean myself off the coffee, or at least to decaf coffee.

After I already started, I remembered there are helpful suggestions and audio recordings to help you through a cleanse on the InnerLight website.

I'll check those out later today, but here is the link for now: 7-Day Cleanse
