This detox diet blog is the place where you can find my thoughts on cleansing and nutrition, plus here you will also always find this site's newest articles and pages.
I haven't been able to have enough fresh juices and smoothies lately and it has affected my mood. I feel more down than I usually feel. My NutriBullet is broken. My juicer got lost. I stored it at my parent's house for a few months and when I went to pick it up, it was nowhere to be found. I need to save money to buy a new one now. I'm thinking to maybe by a slow juicer this time.
One of my tooths broke! In half! It has a cavity in the middle so I guess that's why. I am going to try oil pulling, swishing/swirling with iodine water and with bicorbonate. And I will add minerals to my toothpaste.
I have also noticed that I wake up with a dry acidic mouth every morning. If I could somehow change that, then I think the rest of my teeth will be fine.
Hope all of that will help and that at least the rest of the tooth that is left will be saved... wish me luck!
Global warmimg is really hitting the nordic countries! It's been unusually hot up here this summer. Thankfully we have yhe sea nearby so it's nice to go and take a dip whenever it gets too warm.
My partner has moved to California, so we have about a 9 hour time difference. He sid over there, in southern Cali, it's hot like a sauna! Dry heat where you sweat all the time. So nothing like up here. He might get another 4 years of work over there so after this year I might move there too. I just have to find a way to cope witht hat dry heat tho. Maybe if I eat a lot of watermelon and stay raw? I heard people who are raw can tolerate heat better.
I'm out in the wildest of nature again. Benji is with me. He would prefer to be in the city, but at the moment we don't have a choice because we are waiting for a new flat and we'll only move in later on this month. I eat dandelion and radpberry leaves every day.
This is a real message I sent to my boyfriend. Relationship stress can be very bad for the health and peace of mind. And mind you, this was during a time I was trying to detox!
"I was in a really good mood today, felt light and happy and free for the first time in a long time. But these things really affect me. You tell me Im the one who is knitpicking but when I try not to continue but to calm us down and just be supportive (saying okay without continuing, saying that I'm there for you when you need me) you still can't let go and need to keep going. Like poking into a wound instead of putting a plaster on it so it can heal.
I was still being positive and nice and I said "if something is bothering you or worrying you we can talk about it".
But you couldn't leave it. Started saying I would see what you say as negative.
I didn't react. You kept going. Said you don't want me to ridicule you for your feelings (?) as if I would do that. I said I'm here for you if you need me.
I just feel like whatever I would say wasn't enough."
That was the message.
But we are good now, so no worries at all.
I'm in Finland again! Every day I walk barefoot and I take a dip in the sea. I pick healthy wild leaves every day too. Plantain and raspberry leaves and birch leaves, black currant leaves and more. We don't have that many blueberries this year, it's been too dry. But I'm planning on watering the blueberry bushes around the house and let's see if that helps. I feel really good and I'm so happy to be here again.
Let's take a look at detox water - what it is and different kinds you can make at home!
I just arrived to Sweden where my parents live yesterday. I have already been spending time in the garden several times, walking barefoot on the grass, picking berries and wild herbs! Yes, herbs. I didn't know they had plantain (Plantago major) in their garden! Plantain that has great drawing or pulling action and is perfect when detoxing.
I also picked red clover and raspberry leafs and made a tea out of it. And of course black currants and their leaves as well. Mmmm..
Candida Detox Diet - What to eat to get rid of candida! How would this kind of diet look like? Protein, yogurt and no fruit? Dead wrong.
An idea would be to maybe in the future start growing and selling watermelons. I heard they aren't that hard to grow and they are heavy so good price for their weight.
Maybe a crazy idea - sometimes my love for watermelons takes over!
I have to go and check on Benji.. he hasn't woken up yet and it's afternoon! Wow.. I know he stayed up late yesterday, but I start getting a little worried now.
- find a health food place you love, that will make it easy.
Lots of work today and I was afraid to not make it to the store and post office before they close!
But I managed to get away in time! Sent a package and I even had some time to get a juice and some bliss balls at Green Mood! And when I opened my take away box I was happy to see some added fruit and berries, so nice!
I love that little place, they make it easy for you to just pop in and have some healthy food, even when busy. They serve soups and fresh juices as well as gluten free vegan cakes and these 'balls' that are kind of like energy balls. They are different shades of brown and the coconut one is white. I love the beige one that has the most nutty flavor.
Hey I'm better. After 20 hours of sleep.. that was the worst migrane ever.
I have researched and found out that migraines often are related to the GI tract. I really have to get mine healed the soonest.
I was eating raw and juicing and doing great has just a few days of not the best diet because I was stressed and had no time and then I start getting loose stools and strange stomach and a headache creeping on and then the migraine finally. Anyway..
I'm enjoying my holiday! And tomorrow we have a birthday party at home for a family member. I will be making a lot of healthy treats and I also bought mango 'ice cream' that's made of frozen mango - that's it!
I went to bed at 21.30 yesterday which is way to early for me, I ate raw soup - too fast and too much and felt nauseous. Today I feel good again.
The other day I ate almost a whole avocado in the evening and I felt super bad that night and the next day. Cramps and upset stomach. I got it confirmed that my body handles fats very poorly. I need to do something about that. I know it's the gallbladder, or what else could it be?
Through some research I found that sulfur containing foods causes gas. Broccoli and cauliflower and onion for example.
Sometimes it's also the combination of what we put on our plate.. of starch and protein.
Like potatoes and beans. Or rice and tofu. It's what causes a lit of fermentation in the gut.
Or even rice and meat or potatoes and meat, but I didn't mention that at first because I don't really talk about meat on this website, trying to keep it plant-based and green :)
Long day and a lot to do! But I still managed to stick to my cleaning plan. Not happy about my NutriBullet being broken, but what can I do. It's too expensive for me to buy a new one right now. I made a lot of detox tea in the morning that I carried with me all day. I'm home now and I've had about 10 oranges 😁 and feel great and refreshed.
Detox diet tips
I was just watching something on TV (a reading with a medium and one guy) and the guy (he had been in the military) said 'all his life he was taught to be tough, to always be prepared.. but you know, you can harden muscles and you can harden a mind but you can never harden a heart'.
I thought that was beautiful.
I had to have a check up because it's over a month ago now that it happened. It was one of the saddest moments of my life but I have mourned so much that I'm feeling okay now.
I'm still at the hospital, came out from the doctor's office now. He said there is no way they can know why it happened, "we can never know" he said. I guess it's just nature who does things like this sometimes.
But I still want to work on my body to get any possible problems I might be causing the environment inside me not be be suitable for any future fetuses.
We are moving in a few days and I'm supposed to be packing but to tell you the truth, I'm quite exhausted. But I'll still do my best. I know I need to get this done. The landlord is coming to visit tomorrow afternoon and by then it needs to be very clean in here...
We are about to move back to Finland for a few months, so soon it will become very busy with packing and so on. I really should have started already.. But no worries. Tomorrow I will try to get at least some of it done. Hope you are doing well over there. Glad you are visiting my website. Hugs to you!
Today I felt was a hatd day to be on a cleanse. My Nutribullet broke.. and they told me at the store it could take many weeks or more to get it back from repair.. I wanted to cry. I use that thing almodt for every meal. I hope this won't change anything. I will jist have chew my fruit instead. But I'm not going to give up because of a set-back like this. I'll make it work.

I picked a lot of peaches and some of them were not ripe yet. So on my balcony now I have a lot of peaches on plates, soaking up the sunlight. I hope they will ripen that way? It might take a few days but should be do-able. I can't wait to eat them. Peaches here in Gozo tate heavenly.

My sleep patterns have been totally off the last few days.. it started with me bringing my son to the airport and we didn't sleep at night.
Two days later I had some sort of insomnia, just couldn't fall asleep. And today I have been working all night, now it's 5 am and I have a meeting tomorrow at 11. So I have to go to bed now and really wish I will be able to sleep.
I will be researching a little more about insomnia tomorrow and why it happens. I know it's also just a matter of taking care of yourself and trying to listen to the body - sleep when it wants to sleep and not wait until YOU think it's convenient to go to bed. I pledge guilty!
I know that a few things we do need enough of in order for the pineal gland to work well and produce melatonin is iodine and green vegetables (minerals). But also no electronics before bed - haven't we all heard that. So hard to follow that advice though.
The birds are singing and the farmers are working on their fields. I'm on my way out to pick figs off of some trees close to my house. Someone probably owns those trees, but I think it's a shame they go bad and start falling off the trees without anyone picking the fruit and eating it! So I will do it :)
