I was having some issues after 10 days of an all out parasite counter-attack so after reading A LOT of posts here decided to bite the bullet (or drink the salt water!) this past Saturday night (13th).
Although it was a little like watching a horror flick I was glad the monsterous looking stuff was on the outside! I don't think my experience was too unusual except for maybe some diarhea before last drink (yum, yum) and again in the middle of the night.
Ok, so my issue driving me to do the flush seems to be returning already. Here it is:
I started taking a 30 day supply of Paragon (droplets and capsules) and was supposed to continue for 15 days, take 5 days off, and resume for 15 more days to be rid of them (if I even had/have them). But, I had to stop after 11 days because my digestive system was wigging out. Just couldn't get rid of feeling that dinner was just sitting in my gut. Felt like I had a melon sitting in there. So after reading up here decided to take the bold move of a liver flush....
I was optimistic after ridding my body of all garbage.... Drank some juice when I was supposed to Sunday morning, ate some fruit later, then per the instructions I should "be back to normal" went ahead and ate what was served for dinner. Chicken and pasta. (Sorry all you vegans that just puked, but after days of starvation I just couldn't resist.)
I swear that dinner was there for 48 hours until earlier today! I actually went to health food store yesterday and picked up some acidoll...(whatever) for digestion and some ginger tea per their recommendation.
Earlier today I felt great and actually "threw the trash out" FOUR times!!! Sunday's dinner was history!
Then earlier tonight (EST) I had spaghetti and sauce NO meatballs and all went down fine.
NOW I feel like an alien egg is in my gut and growing and it resembles the same feeling I had before killing the buggers!
Also, I couldn't find anything on this site to help me know what I should and shouldn't eat immediately after a liver flush. If you have some knowledge on this I think a lot of people would benefit from being able to find it (hence the subject line).
After a Liver Flush, my stomach feels very 'delicate'. I am careful to adhere to sound principles of food combining e.g. I don't consume starches (carbohydrates) with protein (meat, chicken, fish, tofu etc). To ease back into regular eating I actually eat just fruit as my first meal after the flush. I suspect that the diarrhoea causes some mineral depletion so I will usually have a vegetable juice instead of the fruit, or after the fruit has left the stomach (maybe 45 minutes). By about 6pm I feel ready to eat something more substantial, though I still feel a little funny in my stomach, from the flush.
I would suggest adhering to rules of correct food combining for the entire day after the flush, as the flush itself is so deeply purging and intense for some people. For me it takes 2-3 days to 'feel myself' again, in terms of energy and digestion! I would have difficulty eating chicken and pasta for dinner the night after a flush.
You could try sitting on the top of a mountain and see what happens. It seems to draw out the biggest stones. But be careful of little children playing below.
Incidentally, when you get an over-acidic tummy (often caused by incorrect food combining), bi-carb of soda is cheap, effective and non-toxic.
I think it is important and good common sense to rectify one's diet after the successful flushes, to avoid the further build-up of stones. Maybe I will find the Diet Forum ...
good night creative people
ate my favorite mexican meal at the end of flush ONCE ... won't EVER do that again
I find breaking fast easiest if I start drinking water shortly after the 4th dose of es, then eat melon 2 hours later/all of it I want, then eat fruit for the rest of that day. I'm pretty much vegan now, and I surely don't want meat shortly after a fast of any length! Hydrochloric acid on a truly empty stomach makes me sick ... EVERYTIME
After the last ES, I drink lots of water and wait for the storm to pass. When I feel hungry - and I wait until then (2 - 3 hours later, usually) - I drink freshly juiced vegetables. About an hour later, I have chopped veggies (no salad dressing) or fruit. Eating a muskmelon or something similar is excellent, as all that fruit finishes the job of cleaning you out and getting rid of lingering stones that the ES weren't able to dislodge. Plus, it helps to soothe the stomach. Later in the evening, I have a vegan meal.
I've learned the hard way, being a meat eater and having intense meat cravings in the evening of the day the stones come out, to NOT eat meat. No thanks. You might get a spontaneous purge of a few more stones, but with intense cramps, gas, and intestinal distress.
Even on day two, the day after the stones have come out, I've learned to keep it to meat tasting and not meat chugging. A little meat is ok. A lot will hurt (at least me, anyways).
On day three, two days after the stones have come out, I can eat pretty much whatever I like.
The info about food combining, above, is good. No meats with starches. Fruits alone. Meat with vegetables, and starches with vegetables, any time. I've found that I never get indigestion as long as I stick to that, whether flushing or not.
It also helps, the day of the flush, to keep to a liquid diet, if you count floaters. Easier to see them with all the fecal matter already gone.
