Kathleen is here enjoying her second The LifeCo detox experience with us in Phuket; we are very excited to have her back so soon! Her first time at The LifeCo Bodrum was February 2018, and she had such a great experience on the Green Juice program that she decided to fly all the way to Thailand to join us again, but this time she really pushed the boundaries and decided to do a water fast! The good news is she is going to share the experience with us all…
So here we are sitting down looking at the beautiful lake in the middle of the centre surrounded by luscious green jungle like trees and bright blue sky with not a cloud in sight!

What was your main motivation to water fast for 21 days?
As I am a cancer "thriver" I wanted to really clean out my body and train my cells to continue being my wonderful cellular police force against any invaders or unnecessary things in my body. I also wanted to reboot my mind for 21 days to understand the importance of water fasting so I can make it a part of my weekly and yearly health maintenance.
What were your desired results?
To totally reboot my cellular cleaning system and get to know my "cells" again. I spoke with them every day, build a new relationship with my little army inside keeping me healthy.
How were your first 72 hours? What was the hardest part of the fasting?
The first 3 days were the most difficult but after 3 days, I knew in the back of my mind I would do 21 days but I didn't put pressure, my next jump was 7 days, after that it was easy to get to 10 days, then 14 days.... at 14 days my energy was a little low, but didn't stop me from exercising every day and working full time. The decision to jump from 14 days to 21 days took a bit of meditation, but I knew in my heart 21 was the number for me, so I went for it.
How were your energy levels, mood, emotional and mental state..?
Energy level was great throughout... after saunas it went down a little bit, but in general I felt really positive and good. Mental state was amazing throughout.
What did you crave the most?
I craved the food at The LifeCo :) Probably because I saw it each day...everything they server here just looked amazingly healthy and tasty. I didn't crave any crap food at all.
How did you cope with your hunger?
I didn't feel hungry... it was very odd. Only on the last 3 days did my tummy start to grumble a little bit...
How was your sleep quality?
Better than usual but I do have sleep issues in general. I was dreaming a lot and sleeping enough..
What activities did you participate daily?
I did a few classes a day and saunas, and of course worked full time. I went to the beach every morning and walked from 7:45 - 9:30 and then swam from 9:30 - 10:30... sometimes I went back to the beach and walked another 1.5 hours in the evening.
Did you do colon therapies?
Just Angel of Water (colema) most days and two colon hyrdo therapy sessions per week.
Which therapies helped you the most?
Tenzin's classes, love Dr. Lodi, love the saunas.
How much weight you have lost?
I haven't weighed myself in 30 years, no idea, I'm guessing 15 - 20 pounds.
How did you feel when you were breaking your fast?
Good, it’s day three and I feel back to normal energy... First 2 days were a little slower, but I feel back.
