Get Healthy through Detox Fasting or cleansing or heal slowly by eating healthy

Is it possible to get healthy through detox fasting and cleansing?

This is the question of the week here at our Nutridivas detox diet website.

And the answer is, yes, you can get healthy by going on a detox diet and of course fasting on for example vegetable juice or fruit juice or water only. We know of many people who have done this.

Socially it isn't always easy to fast, but with determination and some support you can do it.

Detoxing on for example grapes or some other highly nutritious fruit helps and gets rid of disease because it alkalizes your body and hydrates on a cellular level. The anti-inflammatory properties of the fruit with also contribute to your recovery.

Ok, fasting helps. But can eating a healthy diet help me heal?

Ideally you would focus on fasting or a strict cleanse, but not everyone is prepared to do that and not everyone even knows about how fasting really can help.

I your condition isn't acute and you feel you want to take it slow, just instead focus on highly nutritious plant based foods.

Antioxidants from food and healthy omega 3 fats found in for example seeds, nuts and algae, will naturally reduce the inflammation that could be the root of some health issues.

How I'm Healing Myself Naturally

When I was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia at age 31,

it made me stop and reevaluate everything. 

I had a bone marrow biopsy on a Tuesday and received my final diagnosis that Friday, but my doctor was sure it was some kind of leukemia from the start. In those first three days I spent a few hours on denial and anger then moved immediately on to acceptance and grief. 

But I couldn't stop asking myself, how and why did I end up here?

At the time, I was an RN doing home hospice care and dealing with death and dying every day.  I was good at my job, but maybe it was affecting me more than I allowed myself to realize. 

My mom quoted an article about compassion exhaustion in nurses.  Was that it?  Was it the 8 years I spent working in histology laboratories exposed to formaldehyde and xylene? 

I was eating a healthy diet most of the time, lots of veggies and organic food, but had been indulging in pizza and Chinese food a little more than usual.  I love food and I wasn't skinny, but definitely not overweight either.

I had been doing kick boxing for a few months and you might have called my body type athletic or maybe robust.  In the three weeks leading up to my diagnosis I lost nearly 20 pounds.

What about stress? 

My husband and I had bought a house 16 months earlier and moved his nursery business there along with everything else. Besides my full time hospice job, I managed his business and spent many hours establishing a little organic farm and market at our new place.  I worked harder during that time than I ever had before. 

I also knew I wanted to transition into a career in wellness, but I just couldn't find my path and had resigned myself to the situation. 

Whatever the reason, I knew in my heart that there was only one way for me to get through this.

My intuition told me to make drastic changes in my diet and lifestyle, seek out the best holistic medicine I could find, and stay away from conventional treatments. 

I thought it may be possible to beat cancer with nutrition and lifestyle changes, and I was determined to try.

I persuaded my doctor to have me discharged from the hospital so I could get my affairs in order, and I only told him of my plan at my first office visit 2 days later.

I don't remember being fearful of death in the beginning, but I was definitely not ready to go. 

The sadness that overcame me when I imagined my untimely passing was just too much to bear. I tried my best to put those thoughts out of my head.
