Saturday’s Grateful List 

Today I am grateful I have started on an Aruyvedic Process of Detoxification.

Because we cannot scrub our inner body we need to learn a few skills to help cleanse our tissues, organs, and mind. This is the art of Ayurveda.” 

― Sebastian Pole, Discovering the True You with Ayurveda: How to Nourish, Rejuvenate, and Transform Your Life


Today I am grateful for starting on this process because I feel I have accumulated a lot of toxins in my system from 4 general anaesthetics in the last 18 months and a lot of drugs following these anesthetics. I believe the anaesthetics and drugs have the possibility of staying in my system and I believe my system would have worked very hard to get rid of them. My belief that I have toxins in my system is purely intuition and knowledge accumulated from my years of being interested in health and wellbeing. To me it makes sense that substances like drugs and anaesthetics would have a  long term impact on the body. I believe it is a similar process to that of eating unhealthy food, drinking alcohol in excess or smoking. Here is a link to an article that discusses the possibility of long term effects of anaesthetic : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2784653/

Today I am grateful as part of this detoxification process I am drinking no alcohol and no coffee. It is quite amazing how much better I feel taking these substances out of my system. 


Today I am grateful that the Aruyvedic Process will improve my digestion and allow my body to eliminate toxins. This is done through diet, massage , herbs and herbal tea. 

Today I am grateful that I am eating incredibly healthy food. I am on a three week diet of no dairy, no sugar, no meat, no gluten, no alcohol, and no coffee. I am eating beautiful meals that are packed full of fresh  herbs and spices and vegetables. I was sceptical about the taste but so far I am finding the meals delicious.

Today I am grateful that this process is three weeks and I am looking forward to feeling healthier and clearer at the end of it with a whole lot of knowledge about vegetarian food that is full of protein and goodness. 


Please note that I value modern medicine highly and I do not accept that we should replace modern medicine with alternative medicine. I believe each has a place and a value. I look forward to the time when both ways of looking at disease, treatment, cure and prevention can be considered and used to improve outcomes for the human race.
