Okay, so I have to confess (and I don't like confessing weaknesses), I’m still feeling rubbish. Funny thing, loads of people lately have been saying to me, ‘Oh, you need to eat properly – you know, normal food.’ I suppose they mean as opposed to my usual funny diet of fruit, tofu and muesli (and lately not so much of the muesli). But - get this – I’ve only been feeling rubbish since I started ‘eating normally’ – ie proper meals (vegetarian still of course). So maybe my body liked the light diet? Or maybe I just need to be ill for a bit? Who knows?
Anyhow…if I can just hang on a bit longer, I’m heading off at the end of the month to Ti Sana Detox Retreat, in Italy. Testing out their raw food detox for Natural Health magazine. Oh yeah!
And what do they promise? ‘Bright eyes, a beaming complexion, a toned physique and a brand new positive outlook’ Bring it on, babes! Cos, not to put too fine a point on it, I look like forty shades of shit right now. J
Actually I’m more than a little excited about this. I love Italy (one of my bestest old friends is an Italian contessa) and this place gets great reviews. Alongside a diet of organic raw foods and juices (with most of the ingredients home-grown), there’s a gym, a sauna, pool and steam plus plenty of exercise classes and I get scrubbed and massaged and generally fiddled around with… Okay, so I’m not quite so wild about the idea of the Angel of Water treatment (fancy Italian for colonics) but hey…I’m going with the flow. Basically I'm going to let them do with me what they will.
Plus there’s a consultation with the spa doctor and a battery of tests. And I like tests. Hey, I even used to like exams. So, all I gotta do is limp through the next week or so and then, I’m off, off and away…and the nice people at Ti Sana can sort me out.
Where is it? Oh yeah. Forgot to mention it’s in an 18th century village in Lombardy – the centre’s been created out of an old Italian noble’s house near the River Adda. Not far from Milan, not that far from Lake Como…
Fancy coming? J
