Body holding water has just finally started letting go. Coming from a high sodium diet, so do you think my body could just be struggling to get rid of everything? Would you suggest adding something like lemons to the process? I am still eating 2 plates of greens everyday on banana island so i think i'm getting what I need.
you need WAY more that just two litres of water my dear... try about 6. A day...
As others say, check your water intake, be objective and measure your hydration by seeing that you pee clear with vigor 10+ times a day. Also you must sleep as much as you desire to give your body the energy it needs to heal. Greens are not apart of banana island but can be added as you like but it will slow down the healing as it takes more energy to digest greens. Just make sure they are tender leafy greens, like celery or lettuces.
I do not think it is helpful to drink any more than 3 litres of water a day as this is known to flush all your salty nutrients from your body and leave you feeling dehydrated (over hydration and de-hydration feel the same ;) ) Also, if you make a habit of going to the toilet as soon as you feel any slight need to, or focus on it too much instead of just observing your body, you will train your body to empty your bladder well before it is full, somewhat starving the body of hydration despite intake. Hope that makes sense, the mind is a very powerful tool ;)
I would imagine that since you have transitioned to a lifestyle with far less toxin intake after a lifetime of eating standard diets, the amount of toxins (Dioxins, Furans, Polycyclic Aromatic Hyrdocarbons, beta-1-harmane, uric acid and high end glycation products (just to name a few)) leaving your system would be very high.
Fresh dates will calm and centre the brain and lemon juice will help flush many toxins. Pears and watermelon are great for kidney issues including kidney stones and are also great at absorbing at lead!!
Unfortunately thing usually need to get worse before they get better, there are many other de-tox symptoms like sore joints for about two weeks, although as said by others, if it gets too much then slow it down :)
The best piece of advice I could possibly give you is to have a positive mindset, re assure yourself it will get better and you will feel much brighter and vibrant once it does :)
Peace and Love
