Crazy Good Detox Drink Recipe

Namaste'
This is a vlog I put together to show you how to make a 'crazy good' detox drink.  I have used this drink for several months now and I love it. I drink it every morning and when I do a full juice detox I incorporate this into my detox program three times a day. I can see a vast difference in how I feel when I drink this recipe.
I am in the process of putting up a website for sharing what I believe is the best detox system ever!  Because we are a tripart being (body, mind and Spirit) I believe in addressing our entire being for a total cleansing that will change you into 'crazy good' health! 
I will be sharing recipes for detox using this apple cider vinegar drink as well as incorporating juicing and healthy 'real' food (no crazy fad diets).  I will also be sharing herbal tea remedy's, yoga postures, skin care and meditation for a complete and total detox of mind, body and spirit. 
So stay tuned. I will share my vlog recipes as I complete the total 'Crazy Good Life Now Detox System'. 
Please feel free to visit my website http://www.crazygoodlifenow.com- it is still a work in progress. In the meantime, try my apple cider vinegar detox drink and let me know what you think. 
Do the Crazy Thing!

DO THE CRAZY THING!


I have a bucket list. A list of what I want to do before I die.  I call it my 'doing the crazy thing' list. It is a list that I keep with me and review frequently.  I get great pleasure when I can mark off one of my to do's on my crazy thing lists.
For the beginning of 2013 I thought it would be great to be able to mark off of my list one of my 'crazy things'.  So my husband and I completed a 70.3 IronMan Triathlon.  That entails a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run all in one race.  We completed it Jan 13, 2013 in Naples Florida. It was AWESOME!  Wohoo! CHECK!
But ever since my 70.3 Ironman Triathlon I just haven't been the same. I have been tired and sluggish and struggled with upper respiratory issues from swimming in the red tide. When you push your body to it's edge, what can you expect? It's all part of doing the crazy thing!  Heck, if we were to sit indoors all day afraid of getting sick then what is the point of living? Besides, sickness is actually good for us. Yes, you read it right. Our bodies were actually designed to get sick.  We have this wonderful little thermostat in our bodies that increases our temperature when it detects foreign intruders. That is why I always recommend to my patients that they do not reach for the tylenol or ibuprophen but simply let your body's natural defense mechanism kick in. That is what it is designed for. Too often when we start to run a fever we automatically try to stop it by taking a Tylenol or ibuprophen. This actually stops our natural immune system and makes us sicker and worse yet, even weaker. If you have a simple cold try letting your body run its course and detox naturally. Your body in turns becomes stronger and this also increases the immune system.
In helping my body kick the funk that I had created by stressing it, I did my simple detox system.  I now feel back to 100% with lots of energy and ready to start doing another crazy thing.  I will share my detox system with you in the coming days.
In the meantime, don't forget to do the crazy thing!
Namaste'
