Well today is a Strange Day.  When I went to bed last night I felt a weird ache confined to my legs which reminded me of the times I’ve been Dehydrated.  You see I have a 3.5 oz bladder whereas the rest of the world of healthy adults possesses a 12 oz bladder.  The result is that I go potty at least 4 times more than you do and when I can’t afford to do that…I allow myself to get a little dehydrated.  Now I know what you’re thinking.  That’s foolish.  The body needs water to carry out its functions and flush toxins away, and that’s all true.  However..if you and I should take a long car ride together…you will appreciate my restraint.  Occasionally I don’t drink enough so I can make it through a REM cycle without getting up in the middle of the night from 2-6 times.  The rest of the time I’m hydrated..and sleepy.  For the sake of this weirdness on this particular occasion.. I don’t think it’s that.  It reminds me of Lactic Acid build up a little so I’m wondering if this is the beginning of a “Healing Crisis” whereby the ‘junk’ is starting to move into the bloodstream and my body can’t get it out fast enough?  But shouldn’t that be around day seven?

Oh well, whatever this is I drank tonnes today..for me anyway, and the menu plan today looked like this.

‘Fizzy Bubbala’

*Tomatoes, chick peas, apples, and coconut were the only ones in question for the Candida Cleanse. I didn’t find out concretely until day 10 that these were on the NO List. So until day 10, I included them in my diet,  especially Tomatoes, as they were the basis for so many dishes. They are okay to include, however, in later stages of the Cleanse.
