View Full Version : diarrhea
September 19th, 2006, 07:02 AM
I'm on day 4 and I've been drinking Senna tea morning and night since the beginning. I have very loose and urgent diarrhea all day long. I just did the SWF and now I have more diarrhea only it's more watery. Now it looks just like urine, every 10 minutes. I drink the lemonade all day. What am I doing wrong?

I hate to break the news to you-- but maybe you're doing something right! Those "watery" yellow-- urine like eliminations have been affectionately called "butt pee" by some. Get used to them-- because there's more where that came from! The cleanse works by "dissolving" excess material lining your bowels, and not by mechanical means-- like some other methods-- which produce more solid waste. Consequently it is gentler on your system. Learn to work with the eliminations-- and good luck not getting caught in any difficult situations (like more than a 10 minute walk to a bathroom-- or traffic jam with no bathroom to be found...)
Another possibility, would be to lighten up on the tea since it seems to do enough of a job already, skip the morning! Most of my cleanse days I've done the tea at night, SWF by morning-- any chance of doing that? It still takes at least a couple of hours to work it through your system...
Best of luck on your healing journey-- and keep us posted on how it's going!:)

Hi Mama, I hope you are not doing both the lax tea and the SWF! One or the other in the am on an empty stomach. I found the tea made me go all day, whereas the SWF was out of my system in about an hour.

I need to clarify. I was drinking the tea morning and night until time allowed me to do the SWF this morning (no tea this AM). I'm feeling much better now. The "butt pee" only lasted 2 hours :) . I'm thinking of cutting down on the pm tea a bit because I'm running to the bathroom a few times a night. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hi Mama........ you can steep the tea less, and also dilute it. Different teas have different amounts of senna leaf in them. Sometimes I use smooth move and sometimes i go for straight loose senna leaf. I think Sm has the least amount of senna in it. Which are you using?

Hmm, let me see, I actually slept better last night and was only up 4 times. ;) Yes, you heard me right, only 4 times. I've been averaging 5 times for the past few days. This isn't actually *normal* for me - maybe twice on other cleanses... SO... :)

I am using pure Senna leaves. I'll take your advice tonight and just not steep it for very long. Thanks for the suggestion. MamaD

PURE SENNA LEAVES! that would explain a lot! Peterhttp://www.therawfoodsite.com/forum/images/icons/icon6.gif recommends using an herbal tea that has about HALF senna and half other stuff. sounds like you've basically figured it out by now! so good luck from here on. you can also continue to "fine tune" things-- like bayareababe says-- either by the dilution-- or the KIND of tea. Like she says, I "Smooth move" is relatively mild... & I find "Get Regular" really gets the job done when it needs to be done (having been in some situations...;) ) Obviously you know even more about it-- having used FULL STRENGTH!
Lot's of luck and looking forward to hearing how it's going! :)
