30 day Health Challenge – Day 7, One Week In!
After an evening chiropractic adjustment, I started feeling achy in all my joints like I was getting the flu. My kidneys then started hurting enough that I took some activated charcoal for the first time to help absorb some toxins. I’m not sure if my decision to not work out and take my detox bath was a good decision so my body could rest of hindered my body in releasing those toxins. I should have probably have taken the bath but definitely skipped the workout.
11/9 update: My kidneys hurt again the next day and my face looked slightly jaundiced, but I skipped the coconut oil, raw liver pills, and workout to slow down the detox and added chlorella with fermented tumeric to help clean my blood and I feel fine this morning.
