Never say detox…
That was me. Three weeks ago. Detox shmetox – surely you can just recommend a supplement to make my finger nails grow long and strong and we can all be on our way?!! SIX WEEKS OF DETOXING – you must be mad!
If I could work out how to attach the pic of my nails taken those few weeks ago you could see just how bad they really were… The thing is this though, I didn’t realise until I looked at that pic today just how much has changed. Like, really!! Still not great – but amazingly better than what they were. Who would have thought?!!
Growing my nails has been a long-term project. Really long-term…Whatever I did though made no difference – super-dooper moisturisers, oils and applications. Files and buffers. Manicures and cuticle treatments. Nuthin’.
Aaaahhh, says my friendly Core Naturopathics guru Brett O’Brien – gut health. Two words that just sound… wrong. Closely followed by talk of bowel and intestine and all manner of things I never thought I’d have to put any mental space to. I was wrong.
It’s taken me three weeks to get a proper attitude readjustment happening – but I’m wo-man enough to say ‘Brett, I was wrong’.
So this little detox debut diary starts. It may not go anywhere real fast or fun… but change never does at the time it’s happening.
Next – food and alcohol: the good and the bad (and what you think at the time is sad – but then, not so much…)
