I've been working towards a cleanse for some time, but have encountered some obstacles.
I initially bought the Colonix program (which doesn't contain bentonite), but after more intensive research, I decided I wanted to incorporate Bentonite and fasting into my cleanse, and to do it over a more intense shorter term rather than the two or three month period suggested by Colonix. Basically, I decided I wanted to do something more like the BH program, but since the ingredients are similar, I thought I could use the Colonix instead, with some adjustments.
However, as I was in the "pre-cleanse" mode (i.e. eating less and drinking a Colonix plus Bentonite shake in the evening with a laxative tea), I became constipated. I'm sure it was because I wasn't drinking enough water, but I haven't been able to get real relief since (this happened about six weeks ago). I am having BM's, but it is a lot of work to produce a very small amount. I have never been constipated before, and I am miserable. I stopped drinking the P&B until I could get going again.
I have tried juicing, coffee enemas and salt flushes, and while I do expel some fecal matter, I still feel impacted. Obviously, I am reluctant to re-start the pre-cleanse until I can get myself "moving" again, as I think it was the P&B that really clogged me up.
One thing I noticed, however, was that BH site emphasizes no citrus while on the program. I had also read something about Ph balance being a factor in elimination (particularly with MP, but I thought it might be applicable here). I do like to drink water with lemon, and frequently add lemon or lime when I juice anything. Could this be contributing to my constipation?
Any suggestions at all? I am very frustrated, as I came into this wanting a good cleanse, and now I am much more plugged up.
