Hello and Welcome to this wonderful program!
You will emerge beautifully transformed. You will ride the wave. You will walk the walk.
It can be tough by times, but it will always be step by step.
When you start climbing a mountain, and you look at the rocks leading towards the summit, you may think: i will never get there… And then… You walk up. Step by step. When you finally reach the summit, you enjoy this feeling of just having grown and you feel physically the opening within yourself, the relief of being able to leave your comfort zone in an empowering way…
The first week will probably be the hardest. Too many changes to your current lifestyle. You might look at the daily milestones to achieve, and you might be discouraged. When this happens, breathe deeply out, do NOT focus on the summit. Just go step by step. In your pace. You will be surprised!
➡ And there is ALWAYS the option to shout out and get in touch with me simply by clicking on the WhatsApp Button right above! Whenever something seems difficult, not clear, or you need some comforting support to do the next step ➡ANYTIME!
How can you prepare yourself during these coming days before we finally start on FULL MOON?
You can gradually change… switch toward natural unprocessed food, explore the farmer’s market in your neighbourhood.
When you are addicted to sugar and wheat products, use these remaining days to let go every day a little bit more. Usually this is the hardest part for most! On Day 1 – the Day after FULL Moon, there will be NO added sugar and NO grains at all.
By taking these crucial changes in baby steps, you minimize the sugar withdrawal symptoms, which can be very discomforting. Headache, migraine, shaking, hypoglycemia, mood swings….
By the way, this is your first summit -before the show even began!!! And now take a deep breath and let your resistance go…
➡ So far, don’t worry about anything, ➡ just fade out sugar, wheat and processed food. This would be the most important preparation. ➡ Instead, get fresh natural ingredients from the farmer’s market, Trader Joe’s, bio-coop or even your own garden. Oh, and how I love the urban gardening movement. This is the new spirit in our society.
Of course, you can do more, if you like. So yes, detox your home, detox your village, detox this wonderful planet!
It is not about getting more things and products in order to create a clean lifestyle. First use what you already have. Getting new things seems often easier than letting go old ones. Don’t ask yourself, what you need, instead: ask yourself, what you do NOT need anymore. Isn’t there this secret conviction, that there is always something we need, that we never have enough, and even worse: that we never ARE enough without all these things? Next time when you ask yourself: What else do I need? replace your question with: What else can I just let go? During the MOON detox we will experience in the first phase (of four phases) the energy of letting go….
Body & Care…
One reason why I first developed the first version of this detox over 6 years ago was my growing interest in humans’ interaction with our environment. Once you dive into this fascinating topic, you will quickly find out, how inévitable your mind, your thoughts, your emotions are linked to the influences coming from chemical & hormonal – extremely subtle, no to see, smell, taste – sources. Basically everything interacts with everything, and food is only one of many factors.
When I started to experience the first signs of pre-menopause, I learned that a lot of our discomfort (and disease!) comes from overexposure to petrol-derived chemicals, so-called xenoestrogens. I decided to balance my hormones and health in natural ways.
If I would have known what I do now some decades ago, it would have saved me from many cycles of PMS and monthly crazyness. No, it is NOT normal to feel bad during certain days and around menopause.
Update 2018: I am post menopause and never felt better in my life! I am grateful for this adventure of connecting with my true nature. This path is unique for everyone. It is not the business of pharma industry. Your personal inner balance is not a ‘one size fits all’. You will want to learn about your inner waves and cycles and communicate with your organism’s wisdom.
You can minimize the impact of endocrine disruptors by using body care and household products free from petrol derived ingredients.
Homemade Body and Brain Care without Xenoestrogens!
I simply love doing my own products, and am on constant research and improvement mode 🙂
Right now I am into “Centella & Ashwagandha”. We are cyclic organisms, and what was good yesterday, may be outdated today. So please just listen to your impulses. If you are not a DIY person, there are wonderful health stores, herboristéries… selling natural products and sharing their knowledge about plants and how to use them.
My favourite online shop for all you need to make your own cosmetics: aroma-zone.com. They ship everywhere, site is in French, though.
The difference between store-bought cosmetics and homemade cosmetics is similar to eating canned food or fresh prepared food! It is DRAMATIC!
As each person needs specifically designed products, it is impossible to give recipes that work for all and everybody. Depending on what your personal reason for doing this detox is, we will find out what works best for you!
Does it make sense, to detox yourself, and to stay in a toxic environment? While some factors you cannot really change, like the air quality of your city… did I just write that? Use your bike, your wonderful legs and public transports! Especially with new convenient cab variations everywhere nobody needs a car in the city, so yes, better air quality around you starts with YOURSELF….besides that, you can do A LOT more to improve the quality of life for yourself and your beloved ones. Start at home!
Did you ever think about using Soap Nuts? I use them for laundry, dishes, floors, bathroom…
Laundry: 5 nuts into the tiny cotton bag, that comes usually with them for exactly that purpose. I perfume them with some drops of delicious Moroccan Ceder Oil. You can reuse the same nuts 3 to 6 times.
Soap: 10 nuts in 1 l cold filtered water. Heat and let boil about 15 minutes, let cool down, fill the fluid in a glass jar (throw in this case the nuts away) store in the fridge and use within 10 days. As well, i like to perfume with some essential oil, lemon and mint for example. This soap is my universal household and dish cleaner.
Is it possible to grow the soap tree in Europe or the United States? Would be an important step to reduce the xenoestrogenic burden, that comes with conventional household products.
Oh, this is fantastic! You can grow them anywhere in frost-free climate, and they get so huge that one tree is probably enough for the whole community! It needs a lot of water, and the holistic permacultural approach suggests to use the greywater from the washing machine (using soap nuts, of course) to water it! Excellent!
For windows, mirrors and so on: vinegar and some 90% alcohol in water, plain and simple.
Air: Everybody who lives in a polluted metropolitan area, should have a private jungle in the living room! The plants filter and purify your air! In case of Beijing-like pollution, consider installing an air filter system for your home.
Water: Please, never buy bottled water again. This is such an evil brainwash, getting the people to believe they have to buy bottled water. A huge industry hoax. In general, tap water is monitored more strictly than bottled water. Plus, you can either have your water filter for the water you drink and use for cooking, or you can install a water purification system for all the water you use, bathing and showering included. This is the perfect solution! If you have seen the CONTINENTS of plastic garbage spiraling on and in the oceans (no joke,they have the size of continents now!!!) you will never be willing to use one single item of plastic ever again. That should be one of the goals for 2018 for you! For everybody!
Awww, truly amazing, now you can get these super light biological cotton bags! You can wash and re-use them over and over again! Use them instead of the plastic or paper bags for your fruits and veggies when you do your grocery shopping in stores and farmer’s markets!
Ride the Wave!
