About the Tea...

I started taking this a while back and posted about it. I've been taking it for a few weeks now, so I think I'm ready to step back and assess, and my assessment is (drum roll, please):
It's a hit! The tea tastes rather plain, which is a good thing. Nothing too unyummy about the flavour, it's like you're essentially drinking mildly flavoured water, so it's easy to just swallow it down hot or cold. And as for the results, it does clean out your system. I feel more energized and I think my system is digesting better now than it normally does.
A moderate change I would make: take less at the beginning depending on your weight. They recommend two 8 ounce glasses with lunch and dinner, and one 4 ounce glass with a snack. I think this might have been aimed at people who are larger than I am (5 foot 4, average weight), so this amount kinda cleared me out a little too fast. I was very low on energy for a few days. The pharmacist recommended Gatorade which got my electrolyte balance back up after I'd been completely wiped. I'm now drinking about 16 ounces a day instead of 20.
Do I recommend it? Yes, especially if you're someone with a sensitive stomach. I'm going back to buy more tonight, about a 6 week supply. I don't know how long I'll keep doing it, but so far, so good.

I've been meaning to ask you about the Holy Tea and how it's going. I went looking for it after your last post, but apparently it's not available in stores. Did you buy it off the internet? I can't remember. So you think it's totally worth the rather steep price?

I've been buying it from the Ottawa Wellness and Detox Centre, but you can also order it on the Internet, although apparently it takes 3 weeks to get through customs if you do. I do think it's worth the steep price, especially if you have a sensitive stomach to begin with, or digestion problems. I'm not sure if this is confirmation bias, but I think I feel better in general, and I know the general digestion issues I had are less problematic now, and hopefully will continue to improve the longer I do it.
