im on day 5.
and day 4 of my period. day 2 of my period is hellacious, always has been but this time i notice more bleedin/clottin then normal deepened cramping and my womb was balled up tight through out the day. i was ridiculously sick (vomittin) but some times i experience that once or twice during my regular periods , because of the crampin and because i have fibriods, this time i was vomitting from 2pm in the afternoon to 10 pm at night -the next day tho' i was fine! and continued with my fast. to tell u the truth i feel like my cycle isnt even on so maybe it was the cleansing that i needed!
If you read the earlier postings, you'll see remarks from other women that they had additional flow while on the cleanse. In one of the earlier posts, my wife makes the point that a woman's period is a means of detoxification.
I am on Day 3 of the MC and also on oral birth control. I have still been taking the pill, but am curious how dangerous the 2 together are. I am assuming that the pill will lose its effectiveness, but I didnt want to throuw my entire system out iof wack by going off of the pill for the MC time. ???
You mention the acidic tea. Do you mean the laxative tea or the lemonade? If you meant the lemonade, did you check to see you mixed it right? I've very, very seldom heard complaints about the lemonade being acidic and never heard any comments like that on the laxative tea.
If you can't keep down the salt water flush, drink the laxative tea morning and evening.
If your period is severe, you might want to wait until it's over before starting the cleanse and take it easy on the cleanse as it's an indicator that you are more toxic than the average person. :-[
There's a section in my book on taking it easy. Basically, drink the minimum of lemonade drinks per day (6) and be sure to keep in all the elimination actions such as laxative tea and salt water, if possible, and each day drink at least one ounce of water or lemonade for each two pounds of body weight. These actions will help to eliminate the toxins you're mobilizing on the cleanse so they don't build up and make you sick (detox symptoms).
I also cover what the detox symptoms are and why you want them even though they make you feel worse temporarily.
when i called the MC adicic what i meant was that when im on my cycle my symptoms are so sever that it's like the equivilent of really harsh 'morning sickness'
anything citrus tastes 'acidic'...milk talks like slime and makes me puke...and a host of other exxagerated reactions take over my body...(off my cycle i get the tea down just fine )
ive heard my symptoms are all due to my hormones being on the fritz and since i'll be on day 23 of my fast the next time i get my next cycle...im hoping that all the detoxing ive been doing will help calm down some of my symptoms because my body should be functioning better by then (hopefully!)
