Ten Day Total Reset
Well, here goes – I am about to reset my life. Well, my health and wellbeing anyway!
Ann-Marie Marshall of Optimal Health & Wellness in Westcliff specialises in Colon Hydrotherapy, Food IntoleraceTesting and Nutritional Advice. Claire Brooks of plant-based health hub Conscious Kitchen in Sutton Road, Southend is a trained Dietician who is passionate about gut health. Together, these lovely ladies (who both advertise in the Healthy Life Essex directories of course!) have devised a Ten Day Total Reset detox programme.
So, starting this Friday and over the course of 10 days, I will have 3 colonics and my diet will consist only of green juices provided by Claire!
I had already met Claire at her lovely little grab-and-go health hub in Sutton Road and was impressed with her holistic approach not just to food, but to the bigger picture of life, hence Conscious Kitchen. Then Ann-Marie invited me to visit her new clinic in London Road, Westcliff which, I must say, is delightful. We chatted for ages and then she mentioned she and Claire were about to introduce a new detox plan and they were looking for volunteers to trial it.
“What are you looking for in the volunteers?” I innocently asked.
“Ideally, someone who has health issues, generally just feels unwell and/or weight issues,” explained Ann-Marie.
“Oh, I would have volunteered as a reviewer,” I said, unaware that I was digging myself a big hole, “But I haven’t got weight issues and I’m quite healthy, so that probably wouldn’t help you.”
But Ann-Marie was not to be deterred. “Oh, that’s fine if you want to be a guinea pig and do a review. You will definitely notice the difference even if you haven’t got any major problems at the moment.”
And so I’m a Ten Day Total Reset Detox Guinea Pig!!
Once Ann-Marie knew I was committed, she explained in more detail how it would work. And she stressed that it would be tough. Very tough!!
I am going to do a daily blog, which you will be able to follow here. But first, let me just tell you a little bit about me.
I will be 68 this year, but guess I’m lucky enough to be fitter and healthier than many women half my age. I’m not overweight although I could do with a bit of toning, I eat fairly well, don’t smoke and don’t take any prescribed medication – which is probably quite unusual for someone my age. I have got cranky feet due to bunions, but that’s physical; and my skin can be rather prone to flaring up. At the moment, I have a persistent little red spot on my chest. It would be nice if that disappears before it is warm enough to actually bare a bit more flesh! But hey, I appreciate I’m pretty lucky.
So I am committed to this challenge: but actually, it is quite a challenge for Ann-Marie and Claire too as I’m expecting them to make me feel absolutely brilliant!
