September 6th 2010 | Day 4 | [11:22pm]
I've discovered that the herbal parasite killing pills are really hard on my system if I'm not eating anything. I've gone similar periods of time without eating without the effects of the past few days.
I was fine today however. I slowly put very tiny of portions of food into me throughout the day with lots and lots of enzyme pills (so that nothing would be left undigested for parasites/bacteria to eat).
Throughout the day I finished the apple I started yesterday, essentially three bites at a time, a handful of blackberries, a handful of raw pistachios, half a banana and a green drink which contained celery, cucumbers, spinach, lettuce, carrot and carrot tops.
Last night I discovered how truly important enemas are while detoxing. If you're flushing toxins from your muscles, they just end up somewhere else if you don't get them out of your body. Clean intestines make a world of difference to how I feel.
The reason I hadn't been doing enemas from the beginning, as I intended, was because I was so faint I didn't feel up to it. After eating just a few berries, raw nuts, and couple bites of banana and a green drink I got my strength back and stopped being cold.
I think I'm going to write a new detox outline tomorrow based on what I've learned.
My new outline will include a day of water-fasting a week, plenty of IRO-ing, lots of cleaning and being hygienic as I laid out before, but certain portions of vegetables and fruits on a cycle throughout the week.
Total consumption today:
- 2 herbal parasite-killing pills, 4 enzyme pills and 1 probiotic
- 2 tall glasses of water
- 2 cups tea
- 1 green drink (spinach, lettuce, green onions, celery, carrot & carrot top, cucumber)
- A handful of blackberries
- A handful of raw chipoltli pistachios
- ½ banana
- ½ kiwi
- A couple mouth fulls of coconut water
- ¾ apple, throughout the day
Ah, It's actually been a quite pleasant labor day.

If this isn't obvious, I'm migrating this content from my old blog (Really Raw Raederle) to my website where I'm putting all of my content (art, poetry, recipes, meal plans, blogs, articles, musings, etc) together. It's actually fascinating to go back to the beginning of my raw journey and read these old posts.
I no longer struggle with the taste of celery, spinach or many other vegetables I used to hate. I ate sunflower sprouts on a salad yesterday without even thinking twice about it. Back when this was written I still couldn't stand the thought or smell of sprouts.
It's been well over a year since I had the sensation of going numb so easily as I described on Day 3. My circulation is obviously much stronger today than ever before. It's incredible how much I've forgotten about my previous ill health. It slipped my mind that I used to go to bed dizzy and that my limbs went numb if any gentle pressure was applied to them.
How strange to find strength in reading of my own past problems...
I hope you find inspiration here! Let your healing begin.
