What is a cleanse you might ask!?
Well what I am referring to is a (gasp!) parasite cleanse! You bet, a clear out of the body of unwated invaders who rob you of energy and depress the immune system.
What are the symptoms of having parasites!?
Some people feel them inside crawling around!
Some people see them in the toilet! I know-
But did you know that most are microscopic so can't be seen?
And what is an infection such as a cold or flu but a bacteria or virus living off your energy! (The cheek of them!)
No matter what my health I aim to do two cleanses yearly with one being a 'strict cleanse!'
For I, this means taking cleansing herbs and eating a pure diet that is free of sugar, honey, fruit, wheat, dairy, fresh mushroom, yeast, white rice and white potatoes!
This is a cleanse for the body, mind and spirit.
Changes will happen when you do this. Every time I cleanse something majorly positive happens! I am delightfully watching around me for good things these days!
Of course it's work, and takes discipline, that is part of the cleanse. But wow it is worth it and what a gift to yourself.
When you see how much better a car works that gets serviced each year you'll also feel more inclined to give yourself a service yearly and encourage those you love to do the same!
What happens on a cleanse?
Well expect some angst, as you move through the sugar/ coffee addiction - sorry did I mention, no wine or caffeine either- but imagine how proud of yourself you'll feel!
Your skin will start glowing with health, become clearer and even though you can eat as much as you like, the weight tends to fall off too! One of my current clients has lost 10 kilos in the past 3 week and reports that she looks 10 years younger! Not bad at all. The digestive system needs to move daily as you rid your body of die-off and old matter- a really good thing to do! I noticed this year that I had (another gasp!) a layer of fat over my tummy! Well that disappeared too! (applause!)
Last night I dreamt of a a parasite in my body being killed! Boom and gone- well maybe I did have one and not know, but hey according to me dream it's gone!
What I'd like to do is share with you this as an option to not just regain health but to also super boost yourself. You deserve it! Every year we can actually get better and better! Don't take on the aging story and instead choose to become more and more your optimal, true and happy self. It sure is more of a journey than destination but is a lovely journey with many feel good stop off view points along the way.It feels so amazing to be going a feel-good direction!
It helps if you have your partner/ family join you on it (within reason) though is not necessary. Imagine how proud you would all feel of yourselves!
My friend, Rafael who is staying with me at the moment joined me, together we shopped, made tasty healthy meals, juices and supported each other. That support was priceless!

I understand this may not be for everyone and the herbs are not advised to be taken when pregnant or lactating - but if this does call you - maybe now is the time!? The benefits can be so wonderful.
Hey and if you send me an email, I'll happily also send you my cleanse booklet with a list of foods you can eat with meal and snack ideas!
Bon Appetito Amigos!
One more thing, a cleanse is also a wonderful time for reflection. As the cravings go, more space opens up. Allow yourself daily or as often as possible to sit and look at highs, lows and whatever comes to mind. Declutter, reflect and enjoy this space. Wishing you every happiness and every success.
I recently started on another cleanse. as this stage they are like second nature and not being on a cleanse has come more of a novelty than being on a cleanse! I love feeling well and it just becomes a natural happy way of life after a while. But I also enjoy throwing it all up in the air every now and then and seeing how things settle. Regularly at least twice a year I get the calling and so here I am again: Entering cleanse time!
My normal cleanse routine is written about a fair bit on this website. It includes taking the herbs as recommended by Dr Hulda Clark; wormwood, cloves and walnut hull tincture and two amino acids which support energy, rest and rejuvenation. These are taken for 4 -6 weeks in association with an alternative diet. The diet requires no sugar, dairy, wheat, white potatoes, white rice, yeast, mushrooms, fruit and honey.
This time I'm designing a cleanse to suit my needs. The first question I asked myself yesterday was,
Why am I doing/committing to this cleanse?
For everyone the answer is different and there is no right or wrong, but I believe the answer is essential for finding one's motivation and to help enjoy the experience as much as possible.
I am doing this cleanse as I feel these practices will bring out the best in me and support a leap in awareness and reality that I feel is being offered to everyone this month. Do I have to give up sugar to do this? I hear myself ask. No I don't have to, but it will help take me to the next level in a good way - I can just feel it, so let's give it a go!
Here is what I feel excited and guided to do. Daily I will:
- Be/ Walk/ rum/ play in nature for 1 hours
- Practice Jala Neti http://orlaphelan.com/cleanse/netti-pot
- Practice 30 minutes of yoga
- Eliminate all processed sugar from diet (honey and fruit are allowable)
- Eliminate diary/ wheat/ minimize gluten
- Take the 3 in 1 ClarkFx as old on this website Click here to purchase/ for more info
That's it for now!
Mid month feedback:
So today is the 13th and here is a bit of feedback for you. Giving up sugar has been great, it's not been that difficult (due to honey and fruit) and today I feel very well. Any discipline may take a few days or weeks to adapt to. I am loving the hour in nature each day. My center feels settled and I can return to feel this with greater ease. My mind feels sharper, energy level higher, emotional state today is excellent- peaceful, happy and content. I've been enjoying my special super tonic every morning- will blog on that next. Cut down on quantity of food (naturally) and joyful that there are another few weeks to see what happens. Maybe i'll even finish the project I'm working on!?
It's a big cleanse month for many, so good luck to all. May there be clarity as to why and may you be well guided and enjoy the journey and results. Much love, Orla
Here is a video introducing some basics on meditation.
Any approach to calming oneself can be helpful.
There are many ways one can go about this.
Here is a simple guide to one of my favorite, quick and yet super powerful meditations.
Experiment with this daily in the morning (and at night if you will) for 10 minutes or longer.
Observe how your days unfold :)
