30 Bananas a Day!

One of the my favorite fruit is pricky pear cactus fruit(besides Durian, Lychees and bananas). So, last week, when I saw  cactus fruit in 40lbs on sale and decided to purchase it. I started mono eat on the fruit of 10lbs and next morning I had hard time using the bathroom because I had seed impact in my colon and rectum. It was painful and uncomfortable ordeal that lasted for three days. First and second day, in order to get the seed out I had to get them out with my finger and push with my butt muscles. So I ended up third day, getting a colonic. But after the third day I still had plenty of seed in the colon/small intestine. It was a situation that I learned my lesson not to eat prickly pear fruit but juice them which is what I did for the remainder of 30 lbs. I am write to everyone for here to say please don't eat many cactus fruit just juice them. Or you will be in heavy pain situation. Peace yalll and keep eating those bananas. They are easier to digest.

Hey, I am having similar symptoms after eating meals of 1-2 kg of prickly pears with all the seeds. I have had hypoglucemia like symptoms too I think.

So do you think it is for the seeds? after removing them, you haven't had any symptoms, right?

I was thinking it could be the enormous amount of magnesium prickly pears have, one can eat the amount of  day in only one meal but who knows.

thanks for the experience.

Yep, a friend of mine did that too once, and bad times...

Still we will have plenty of them at the Raw Fruit Festival http://festival.811-friendly.net this year, but in juice, strained to get all the seeds out of course. And that's a delight!

some guy on vegsource was asking about pricky pear and hypothermia.. he was eating seeds. ?
i have never eaten the seeds in all my life eating them i suck off the slime on them and spit them out.

no issues.  oh and i love the pads too

Woo, thanks for the warning there, Frederick O.O

Glad you're feeling better, mate.

I live in the land of plentiful mickey mouse eared succulents, though I've never developed a craving for them.  But I'll be extra careful if I ever do.

While we are sharing...Dare I...

I was out hiking and saw some cactus that resembled prickly pear and thought I would taste wild cactus out of curiosity.  What I did not realize is that this particular cactus had almost microscopic needles.  I spent the next three days picking needles out of my hand to the amusement of my family!  Luckily, because I was already skeptical about its edibility, I had only tasted some juice, and I only got one needle on the corner of my mouth.  

If I had consumed the whole thing, I am sure some doctor would have earned their paycheck picking those things out of my mouth:D)))

Peace, PK

So I am eating kilos of prickly pears without any problem now, just an indescriptible pleasure :), thanks to the obvious (for me now) advices from here, drink the juice, too many awful seeds like little stones, lol.

Thanks very much to all.

Perception is Critical!

Perception can make or break you. If you take everything in stride, don't get stressed or tense about whatever it might be, you'll get a lot further in life....
