Regardless of my exterior looks, for me to feel beautiful I have to be kind to my body. First and foremost eating a clean diet of good quality natural food. In addition I take probiotic supplements to aid the production of beneficial gut flora and kill the bad stuff. I also take fermented cod liver oil, supposedly the very best omega boost on the market.
On top of all this, I walk everywhere I possibly can. Usually pushing my 2yo in a buggy with the baby strapped to me in the sling and sometimes dragging 5yo on her scooter at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s not as much exercise as hitting the gym hard four times a week but it’s better than getting the bus.
Although a slightly odd way to spend my time sans kids, yesterday I had my first colonic irrigation in eight years. I can thoroughly recommend them to anyone that hasn’t – especially if you’ve had babies. Colonics are a great way to give your body an internal cleanse*, and get rid of toxins from the stresses of life. They’re also a fabulous kick start to any detox programme. Admit it you’re a teeny bit intrigued now aren’t you?
The treatment was my birthday pressie from hubby this year, because today dear readers I am 35. I am no longer a spring chicken by any stretch of the imagination, but by eating well, keeping fit and clearing out the crap (quite literally) I hope my body will be beautiful on the inside for many years to come.
What’s the point in projecting beauty and youth, if your body fails you?
