Food was my drug of choice. It was how I dealt with my emotions. I had a wake up call and went back to cleansing, my yoga practice, and went to counseling so I could deal with "stuff" in a proper way. I had to cleanse my body, mind, and spirit. Where I am today is because of some intensive work. The journey wasn't easy but so worth it. The health of our physical bodies are connected to mental state. Sometimes our cleanses are not about losing physical weight but to release emotional baggage. The winter time is a great time to cleanse our kidneys & bladder as they are open during that time. It is also a time to release things that are emotionally; as the bladder and kidneys governs the water bodies, which is associated with our emotions. So we can really release ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ on many levels. See you on the other side I promise you will feel lighter. .
