ok so long story short
i did my first flush about two months ago the whole nine yards
changed my diet and everything.
now the problem is i didn't pass any stones that i know of, lots of chafe, the little red crystals, since then i'v had a reduction of bowel movements. since then its gotten rather bad sometimes having a movement after three days or so and its always very small accompanied by upset stomach and out right pain.
i'v been to the doctors several time since then had a die scan and x rays, they didn't find anything, they tell me to go home and take laxatives *they didn't work ether*
after the laxatives didn't work i tried an enema didn't work very well and it hurt to have any fluids in me
at this point i haven't had a movement in almost a week
even after eating salads for the whole week with lots of apple cider vinegar drinks and blended smoothies of fruit and greens with cacao and coffee
i'm about to go to a gi doc here soon and see what he thinks
but i'm scared he's going to tell me the same thing the er did
my main question here is, has anyone had trouble like this after a Liver Flush and if so what did you find out?
Try another flush. Many people have problems or lack of success with just a single flush, give it another try and try to follow the protocol as close as possible including the enemas. I find the enemas unpleasant myself and often painful to a certain degree, so just do the best you can.
thank you for the time, sorry i haven't gotten back sooner
i'v had so many things happen to me since then
from what i can remember i went to the er about 1 day after i posted, they flushed me and all was well for a week or so.
i'v had many things that are bothersome, some strait up painful symptoms like: lightheaded feeling, confusion upset stomach, diarrhea and constipation, gas moving through my gut but its rather uncomfortable , bruised feeling in the right testicle, pain around the appendix is the latest, saw the doctor about that one he sent me home with undiagnosed abdominal pain(not sure if its cause i don't have insurance or he just didn't know for sure)
i was doing rather well until the appendix problem popped up , i was eating semi normally small amount of eggs, some meat here and there but mostly veggie raw food and the like, i didn't want to eat much at that time because when ever i did, about four hours later i could feel the food move and it felt like it was ground glass moving through me.
but seeing as the pain in the appendix area is worse then the ground glass feeling, i'v stopped eating solid food, this seams to help with the glass feeing, but the moving gas sensations are always there, and the appendix pain comes and go's
thats the best i can remember of whats been going on, my main concern is that i may have done some thing wrong with my liver flush, or chose to do something i knew nothing about, i'm a little hesitant to flush again seeing as from my perspective the Liver Flush caused or unlocked/unleashed these hidden problems that would have affected me sooner or later
i really don't want to sound like all i do is complain so I'll ad some positives to my rant
the good is i been on my first fast for three days now, went from smoking about 15 cigarettes a day to almost quit smoking almost entirely, I've quit drinking and i have learned so many things about herbs and how to use them
ok so this is a day four of fasting on green juice and pro biotic yogurt
feedback would much appreciated
encase you're wondering
i'm a 21 year old male, with no notable problems before flush.
i had a bout of the flu(as did the rest of the family)
fleeing allot better no pain in the appendix area much relief there.
as for symptoms
the lightheaded feelings are on going, i feel as though there is a brick about where my liver is, strange aches and pain allover my body(never seamed to have before) muscle spasms in my left bicep (very strange to me)
i woke up today and felt a chilling sensation about three inches long just below my liver and about an inch and half into my abdomen(i'm thinking biliary ducts) followed by a popping sensation near the top of my pelvic bone, just behind my bladder(felt like intestines but not sure)
i feel incredibly ill allover my body, possible liver toxicity? Castor oil packs seams to help, but i wanna heal not treat.
i'm thinking about doing more flushes now, but i'm not sure if i should continue with my problems?
my inner doctors tells me i'm doing something wrong/done something wrong as for what i am ignorant.
wingofblack-Did you get any help? When did you get the flu you mentioned? I think you should NOT do another flush, (also I don't know what process you did) but should find a Naturopath. Your intestines are inflamed it seems and you need to let it heal. But perhaps you have a bug, bacterial infection or parasites.
wow i had almost given up on cure zone, lucky i dropped by for a question i need answering.
no, no one seems to want to help, i been in and out of the er they tell me the same thing over and over, we dont know what wrong with you, we dont know whats causing the pain, but it seems you're constipated, take this laxative and go home. this could from the fact that i am not insured and unemployed
i fear things have gotten quite bad
i dont have bms any more, with out help any way and there quite small when i do get some out, i'v stopped eating entirely, and moved to juices and smoothies as of yesterday.
you caught me at a good time i just tried magnesium citrate about 10 or so hours ago.
i'm not happy with the results
only the liquid from the drink it self came out.
extra note, its quite inky( by inky i mean cloudy, but you cant see through it) from white to darker then usual brown this is all on the same magnesium citrate laxative.
as for the flush i did the recipe was three day fast on apples and apple juice, Epsom Salts for the Colon Cleanse grape fruit and extra virgin olive oil for the flush
i'v been going crazy trying not worry to much about this, but to be honest i'm really scared.
and i wont even get started about the pain, but i will tell you where and how often.
i pretty sure the liver is inflamed, i know this because i poke my fingers just under my ribs and the hurts, this follows through to the back side, its burns some times and it stings some times, in the front and back.
if you have more questions ask away i'll keep my tablet close, if you have some sort of insight i would be happy for for the information
For the constipation, you can take various herbs. I have used an ayurvedic herb called triphala that works very well. I just started taking Lower Bowel Balance (ask Barefoot forum). If it doesn't work enough, just keep adding more and more until you have regular bowel movements. Triphala is just an extract of three different fruits so you can never overdose on it if anything you will just get loose stools, which is still better than not going at all.
Sorry I don't have any suggestions on the other problems, most people do fine with Liver Flushes but there CAN be adverse reactions, I had problems with electrolytes becoming unbalanced after the liver flush. Maybe you can ask on the Ask Barefoot forum he seems to know quite a bit about liver flushing.
