I went to stay at Atsumi after a very party fun filled month in Costa Rica with friends. I decided about a week before I got to Thailand that I needed to give my body a rest and a restart. So this journey began. I flew in from Costa Rica after a 56 hour journey and started my pre fast on this trip back to Asia. I arrived at the resort, which is basic, but serene and the staff are so friendly. I started my cleanse immediatley, and met all the other guests and staff..who were all just gorgeous and sweet and so welcoming. My room was large and perfect for what I was doing that week. The first few days were okay, the colemas are tough, well they were for me, but the drinks and pills I found fine (other guests said they found these hard to take), so everyone has their own unique experience. I did the full fast, and I was not hungry at all...I would think I was, but I wasn't. The drinks keep you full.
Day 3 and 4 were the hardest, they call this your "healing crisis". I had headaches and felt feverish and flu ish. But it passed and on the morning of day 5, at my cherished morning meetings when we all meet at the yoga area, everyone remarked how well I was looking, and that was it, I was WELL, I FELT WELL..for the first time in ages. I drank my delicious fresh wheat grass shot with my new friends and we read the angel cards and discussed health and life. It was gorgeous, all of it.
Thank you to the staff at Atsumi, Sophie was a big help to me, as were all the staff, they can't do enough for you. Nam broke my fast with me, and it was so funny, as I savoured every bite of papya and watermelon! So sweet! I will be back to do raw fast I think next year, but hopefully I won't need to do full again....Haha! They way my life is though, it might be no harm to do a 7 day full fast once a year! Lots of love and thanks Atsumi! I have been eating so much healthier and barely drinking alcohol since I left you, and dropped another kilo and half since the ten days ago I was there! WOO HOO! xxx NAMASTE
