This week has really gone by fast! First Detox period is over. Aubrey and I both received our body wrap this week as well. I'll kind of walk you through what that is like.
First - body is exfoliated with "buff" this is a physical and enzyme exfoliant. Tiny ground pumice and papaya work together to loosen dead skin cells and prepare the body to absorb the niacin cream. Next the niacin cream is applied, followed by the wrap. The wrap is a saran type wrap that is wrapped in a specific way to contour the body and stimulate the lymphatic system. It is left on a total of 1 hour. We were warm and comfortable, but not hot while in the wrap. The idea is for the niacin to be absorbed into the body, not sweated out! It is important to drink lots of water after the wrap to eliminate toxins. When the wrap was removed, I felt so great, really calm and rested. Aubrey did receive her massage, but my schedule did not allow me to this week. I have it to look forward to next week! We will continue to apply the body exfoliant and maintain (home care of niacin) to maximize the results of the wrap.
Thanksgiving!!! It was wonderful to have many of my family in from Michigan this week/weekend! My brothers in law and Russ had their own little "deer camp" and our home was camp! My Mom, three Sisters, my daughters and cousins all had a wonderful time cooking and visiting! We had our "feast" Saturday. We literally cooked from sunrise until about 4:00pm that day! EVERYTHING from scratch, down to the roasting of a pumpkin from our garden for the pie! I didn't get to eat that, but the word was that it was the best pie ever!!! We had all the traditional food, but I had spent time earlier gathering and experimenting with recipes so that those of us (three) who are doing the candida/weight loss diet could have a great meal as well....and it WAS!
