Intense Detoxification at 16 Month Mark *Updates- Please Share Your Insight!!*



Thought I'd provide an update for everyone regarding my detox. It has now lasted around a month, and over this period of time I've experienced intense waves of both diarrhea and constipation, both going in 3-4 day cycles. I've also had quite a bit of bloating, pimples breaking out on my face and body odor. It's interesting as in this time I've noticed that one of my severely receded gums that was once black is healing very quickly and turning back to pink. I really have no idea what this all means. 


I've also gained 10+lbs of who knows what. My definition has disappeared and I have a very bloated, flabby look. Cellulite has returned on the backs of my thighs, and I can not fit into the majority of my pants and shorts. It's a bit concerning. 


I've had constant indigestion and I've decided after a long month of digestive pain and discomfort to get a colonic. I'm going to hold out for a couple more weeks, but if this constipation/diarrhea cycle continues I really have to do something about it. I'm not usually an advocate for unnatural processes like this, but I'm becoming a little desperate at this point. Only around 30-50% of my usual excreted waste is coming out on any given day. I believe that this is cause for concern. 


Please, if anyone has any insight on what could be happening, or any advice it would be greatly appreciated. Nothing has changed with my food intake, exercise, sun, or sleep patterns. I'm eating mostly mono meals and plenty of fresh local produce. 



Hey everyone, 


Just to provide a bit of background I recently started eating overt-free for the summer. I've been eating simple fruits and veggies for 10 days now. I did this last summer and experienced a wonderful feeling of lightness and an increase in energy and endurance. 


In the first few days my digestion did some cleaning and I had already started to feel the benefits. I also had a white coated tongue for the first 5-6 days. Today, however, is a different story. I woke up and drank my usual litre of water and had a banana/date smoothie. For the rest of the day I had absolutely no desire to eat which is quite rare for me. I ate a few oranges at lunch and felt full immediately. Around 4pm I decided that I should probably eat something as I would be riding my bike to my Spanish lesson. I consumed a very small green smoothie, somewhere around 400 calories worth. 


I usually consume 3000 calories per day but I could barely get the food down today. Within the last hour or so I've been experiencing some pretty intense pain in the region of my large intestine. I had a two very dark and flaky bowel movements that were quite uncomfortable. I feel extremely dehydrated so I've been drinking a lot of water to help the process along. Also within the last hour I've experienced a large amount of water retention, bloating and gas. I've had a few similar experiences in the past while my digestive system was cleansing but never before with this pain. It feels very similar to the pain from my monthly flow while I was eating a SAD diet. 


Has anyone else experienced this before? I feel uneasy when there's pain and I don't understand the reason for it.

It sounds to me like your intestines are cleaning out some old impacted stuff. The pain indicates that the old impacted matter is exposing some tender flesh. Maybe try monoing on juicy fruits for a few days? Melons? Just a thought.

Thanks Chris. I was thinking the same but I like to hear other's opinions. 

I think that's what I will do. I have some delicious oranges here. 

If it were me, #1 I'd rest extra, other than that I would do just fruit until the pain goes away and maybe do a day or so of one kind of fruit to ease my digestion or if I was able to rest then I might even do a 24 to 72 hour water only fast.  Hope this passes soon! :) XO

Will do. I have the time to be able to rest so I'm taking it easy. 

I think i'll mono on oranges and bananas. Thanks Ednshell!

If this was me I would not force feed if I wasn't hungry, and like others said if I was hungry just eat something really gentle on the system, and of course rest, rest, rest. Hope you are feeling better soon Tarah, please let us know.
Thank you Amy. I hope so too.

We just did some long flights and training in warm weather. Ive been chewing thru the water.


Get extra rest and water.

Will do.
How are you feeling now?

I haven't eaten much today and have been taking it easy. I woke up very early this morning with more colon pain and have had a steadily growing headache all day. I've been drinking lots of water.

Feeling a little worse and very tired.

I'm grateful for it all though. I'd rather have whatever is causing these problems out of my system! 

Hi Tarah, sorry you are feeling poorly, and I love you're attitude. I'm so wondering what is going on with you. Please keep us posted, and get well soon.

Lots of love and admiration,


T'is possible Greg. I didn't feel anything while I was in Japan but had we not gotten out of our city (Tono) the radiation would have reached us the next day.

Do you know if there is any way to test for radiation levels in the body?
