Tis the season for respiratory support.
What do you use?
My go to is my Breathe Roll-on.
It is a combo of frankincense and cardamom 🙂
For babies(under 12 months) I use 2 drops of cardamom and 2 drops of frankincense in a 10 ml bottle with a carrier oil of your choice.
I up this recipe for ages 1 and up to 5 drops of cardamom and 5 drops of frankincense in a 10 ml roller bottle with your choice of carrier oil.
I love this blend for supporting our respiratory system.
So I decided to do this 5 day cleanse.
It is a gentle cleanse. It has a lot of health benefits. I am still able to eat a few snacks(some fruits/veggies/nuts/broth)a day.
You wake up and take the Digest & Cleanse(super gentle- definitely don’t feel like I am running to the bathroom or anything). You wait 30-60 min and have your Balance Complete shake/smoothie. Add some oils to this to add some fun flavors. Then you have a snack. You continue to repeat this process for lunch and supper. Drink lots of water.
I really have not been hungry but to be honest- I like to eat.
I love food.
Not bad food but food.
I also know that I eat when I am not hungry.
Why? Because food tastes good and I love food.
It is a struggle. I can be totally unaware of what I am eating.
So going forward- food? Yes!
Tracking my food? Yes
I feel like this will hold me accountable.
Do you love food?
