Thanks to my amazing Joanna, I now know it takes 12 - 18 months to completely rid your body of toxins and return to complete health. This is my goal. I can remember feeling so healthy. I was 19. Running everyday. Sleeping. KNOCKED OUT kind of sleeping. My heart rate was 42 beats a minute. I ate to fuel my running. I got to eat so much!!! No headaches, no insomnia, no random aches and pains, no drowsiness.
To start my path to health I choose walking and yoga. I will alternate the days of walking and yoga. Until I can get my body feeling comfortable enough to run.
I have an excellent DVD from Shiva Rea. She has a solar and lunar flow movement series. After just one practice, my back has posture, and I'm somehow able to breathe easier.
I am blessed to have the time to heal, and that is indeed my goal.
