Feeling exceedingly odd today, I couldn’t get out of bed yet again, felt like I wanted to spend the whole day there but I know if I did I wouldn’t feel good about myself. I began by doing my first oil pulling, this is when you swirl coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes, it feels weird and I kept having to remind myself to keep swishing. When you spit the oil out it is all milky and contains toxins which the oil has helped to remove from your body.
Since then I’ve had a green smoothie and a few macadamia nuts and done some reading and a bit of hand washing and through all of this my head has felt very strange. A bit like when you have a flu or virus, it is a sensation I associate with cellular shifts going on in my body. So I guess that is most likely what is going on, I started my moon bleed on saturday and had the sense that I might be doing a particularly big shedding.
As a matter of fact the other times my head has felt like this I have been going through major detox so there is my answer to the way I’m feeling. The feeling in my head only happened after the oil pulling so it would seem that it helped to speed up the release of toxins. Probably a good idea to consider giving up coffee for a few days but I probably won’t, I don’t get withdrawals when I don’t drink coffee, but when I want it I want it and that’s that!
So much for Miss I want to achieve optimum health, well it will simply have to be in stages, and maybe I will always have coffee in my life. As I go along I add in good habits, and remove the bad, it is a slower way of creating change but the new habits are more likely to stick.

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that
works as a magnificent de-toxifier for the mouth
and the whole body, often solving chronic dental
issues without the need to go to the dentist.
