I recently had to walk out of a very dysfunctional relationship. After 3 years of waking up day after day feeling unhealthy both mentally and physically, I had to call it quits. My relationship with alcohol had become very different than it was when we were introduced. Instead of casual glasses of wine out with friends or a cocktail here and there at home, booze became a way for me to cope with the stress of my environment. It helped that my "husband" (I will use that term very loosely) had a deep seeded relationship with alcohol- and we enabled each other. Keeping me buzzed was much easier than dealing with the issues at hand. I can't blame him at all for drinking the pain away, luckily I got to walk away from it.
The last few months have been a total game changer for me. I no longer have to take his recommended anti-inflammatory dose of Advil every morning, in fact, I haven't taken one since I left the house. I sleep like a baby, I wake up rested, my skin glows, and above all... I feel happy. I will date booze again, and we will go out occasionally, sleep together and flirt a bit - but my relationship with it will never be what it was.
Being the product lover I am, I wanted to do a internal cleanse that made sense for my lifestyle. I generally don't like cleansing, I feel like most cleanses are too restrictive on foods, and lead me to crave and then overeat when I'm finished. I happened upon Dirty Lemon Detox on my insta account and was immediately intrigued. Not only is their packaging and platform spot on, but it's a cleanse for real people who eat real food. The ingredients in Dirty Lemon actually work better when absorbed by food. Rejoice!
I generally eat whole and healthy food, with an occasional carne burrito. I smile when I see butter and I usually need 3 cups of coffee with cream (hold the sugar) to get me fired up in the morning. I'm not about to starve myself or drink 10 bottles of juice a day. I have been impressed by Dirty Lemon Detox so far. I am on day 4 today and my body feels good. I experienced a slight breakout on my face from eliminating some toxins, but other than that - just more energy and less of a bloated feeling. I love that I can do this cleanse anytime for a boost and that it targets my liver and kidney function. I'll be keeping a case of this elixir on hand at all times.
The color of Dirty Lemon is just that... like dirty lemon water. It tastes just like unsweetened lemonade, even my picky 9 year old digs it. The color is like dishwater, so I suggest keeping it in the well designed and decorated bottle. This cleanse is perfect for non-committers, food lovers and boozehounds. Bottoms up!
