If a person does the MC for a long period straight, or does a shorter time and then takes a break and goes back to it for a longer time, why is it recommended to not do the latter, but the former is considered okay??
I have had a week of eating, done a Liver Flush and started a Bowel Cleanse and I hate how I feel!! I know my body was signalling for me to contiue the MC, and at the same time I wanted/needed to the the liver flush. I want to finish what I started and go back to the MC now... Why is that contraindicated, do you think??
Thanks so much,
Because you are yo yoing your metabolism up and down without giving you system a chance to normalize. Read the FAQs Detox stages and that will clue you in why a longer fast is better than several short ones.
Start juicing and eating mostly raw and you will continue detoxing while letting you body normalize. This will really benefit you on your next MC and will minimize any detox symptoms you might go through.
I want to say thanks to Pepe's response as well - I am in the same exact boat, except I only went for 5 days, then 2 days of raw, apples, etc ... Liver Flush ... and I also want to go back to the simplicity of the MC, and finish what I started. I also have recognized that what needs to be done with my body is going to be long term. There is a lot to learn ~ I have been eating almost entirely raw since MC and liver flush, however! I plan to eat traditional Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow! (but not gorge). Then back to raw, and then in Feb. or March I am going to do a long MC, as long as it takes to know I am clean. Meantime, I am asking for a juicer for Christmas, and a book on Raw (12 Steps to Eating Raw? or something like that).
Just wanted to say, I am right in that same boat. Would love to do several short, but rather will take the advice and detox other ways - eating raw - continue Colon Cleanse with Bentonite and Psyllium - Liver Flushes - there are other things to be done. However! I really look forward to finishing things up with MC! It is so great, I am telling everyone about it!
