No problem in combining the Keto diet with occasional liver flushing.
What is important is that on the day of the liver flush, you avoid consuming any fat foods. That is all.
What you do the other 13 days between flushes, it is up to you, consuming diet composed mainly of healthy protein and healthy fats will only benefit your liver.
If the keto diet is not good for you, your body will tell you. Not all diets fit all people.
An important part of Keto diet is bone broth with bone marrow, usually cooked 24 hours ( bones cut into pieces to allow for bone marrow to melt and dissolve into the soup + water + Sea Salt + juice from one lemon or equal amount of apple cider vinegar ).
Acid from juice help dissolve natural minerals in bones, making the broth stronger.

So there are many factors that will affect the pattern you seek. Also pain is relative. To you something will be painful and not to others and vice versa. Pain from fasting depends on how clean your body is. I fast relatively without any symptoms now after so many years of regularly fasting.
For you to figure this out, you have to try it your self. I would say do five days a month and do it again a month after, keep a diary of what you eat how you feel and then try fifteen day fast. And then there are so many variations of pattern of fasting. Some do two days every week, some do 1 day a week. Whatever you choose to do the most important part is that the period in between fasts should be 1 or 1.5 times the number of days you fast.
I've been suffering from IBS for nearly a decade.
I've determined that this summer I'm going to embark on an extended fast in hopes of eliminating my issues.
Has anyone else been successful in reversing IBS symptoms with a long fast?
I'm thinking 21 days but will go as long as I need to ensure positive results. Any recommendations?
Also - any general suggestions for making this successful are greatly appreciated.

Listen to everyone here who are only trying to help you and point you in the right direction. Thank you for letting us know that you had an eating disorder.
You really want to seek professional help now, because you sound obsessive about weight loss and that is not what fasting is about. Passing out at work is a sign that you need to stop fasting totally till you figure out why are you in this state. Being on plant based diet will help, but you really need to talk to a professional. We all have our own issues. You are going to get out of this, but only you can help yourself.
Take care of the beautiful body that is given to you.

At the end of the day, there's only so much we can do. They come here for advice, and we give it in good faith, giving them the benefit of doubt regarding any ulterior motives. What they then do with that advice is down to them.
We can't force them to follow it. If they wilfully choose to ignore it and die as a result, there can be no blame attached to us. Does a medic get blamed for a patient's death if the patient refused to follow his advice?
You are unaware of the worthy nutrients that are present in some nourishing foods that you avoid. Rooibos tea has various benefits.some of them are Prevents hypertension, Body boost, Supports the respiratory system, Better blood circulation, healthy hair.

I can relate to your struggles. My stomach problems used to be so bad I had trouble keeping my weight up and I was limited to what foods I could eat. I tried so many things to try to cure myself including elimination diets, parasite cleanses, liver flushes, supplements, etc. I spent so much money on alternative health practitioners and expensive supplements. I remember eliminating gluten, sugar, and dairy from my diet waiting for the awesome health people talked about but that I never happened to me and I thought that maybe I had so many toxins in me that the diet wasn't enough.
It took a while but I finally realized that the more I tried to cure myself the worse I got.
It's hard to explain how I cured myself but I didn't have to eat a special diet or take any supplements. In fact the more food you eliminate from your diet the more sensitive your body gets to it. When I was reintroducing foods like gluten back into my diet it was uncomfortable at first but after a few weeks I was back to normal.
I recommend you read the book "Thou Shalt Not Eat" and "Mind Over Medicine" These books explained why I wasn't getting better even though I was doing what I thought was the right thing.
I understand the dilemma some feel at eating other animals, but we ARE omnivores. It is howW we developed and how our ancestors have lived and thrived for countless generations.
I suppose that it carries a lot of responsibility being at the top of the food chain - but I say to try to harvest (kill) as humanely as possible and also to try to consume the very healthiest natural forms of meat - wild caught, free range, organic, grass fed, etc.
I personally never recommend anyone to go all the way vegan and plead with them that when they do that they plan and supplement very carefully. Otherwise, you may be setting yourself up for some serious health issues down the road.
Which One is Most Healthy? Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil?
It’s a question that has come up over and over again in the past few years. “Is canola oil the same as vegetable oil?”, “Is it as healthy as vegetable oil?”, “Canola oil vs vegetable oil in baking, which one is better?”.
The answer to these questions might surprise you. To that end, we have the answer to those questions as well as nutritional data and facts to back it up. We’ve got all the answers so that you can provide you and your family with the proper decisions for everyone’s health.
I have a feeling that my descending colon is very stiff. What makes me feel this is that when I take an enema or colonic, I can feel stiffness in that area.
I also have a very stiff neck and shoulder on the left side, and the muscles around my left hip are also quite stiff. The muscles in my legs tend to get rather tense if I sit for long, much more on the left than the right. Plus, for the last year and a few months, I have had a stiff and heavy sensation on the left side of my face, mostly on the upper left side, particularly in the left eye.
These symptoms make me feel even more that the descending colon and perhaps the sigmoid colon are at the root of my health issues, partly if not entirely. These symptoms increase after I have eaten.
I've done a week long colosan cleanse and 9 colonics in the last year. Also 10 Liver Flushes and I plan to continue doing those. I have been doing salt water enemas - about once a week or so for the last 2 years, occasionally experimenting with ACV or Oil Enema s, or more occasionally, with some ayurvedic herbal decoction enemas. Have also done about 40 coffee enemas over a period of a couple of months in August-September last year.
I eat an organic diet of cooked vegetables with a small quantity of brown rice, and every other day, I eat a large quantity of fruit. I am mostly but not entirely vegan. I follow some of the Nourishing Traditions guidelines in cooking and some guidelines for the ayurvedic vata dosha.
None of this has made any difference so far. What else can I do to help my colon?

Hey, I too have been drinking lemon water quite a bit of late and found it only refreshing. You must be consuming something along with it. I'll get back to you on this one, for how and when should it be consumed.

My skin was a bit mixed. I started out with dry flaky skin when I reached 16. Which could of been thyroid related but there was far more than this. My pituitary gland and hypothalamus was partly destroyed as shown in my iris by a black mark through both. I was not aware of this at the time, not for about 10 years later. It actually occurred when I was 12 when I had a very severe headache, sensitive to light.
I used some Aloe gel on my face which caused scaly scabs to form and the skin became extremely dry and tight. This was really severe and looked and felt terrible and was very uncomfortable. The skin would not heal. I went to TCM herbalist shortly after this which helped improve things. It never got rid of the dryness which did vary depending upon the foods I ate. At the time I was not aware of leaky gut, although I did make a connection with the foods I ate affecting things.
Have you ever checked your stomach acid levels? I read many books on Iridology, GAPS, Increased Intestinal Permeability Syndrome and others. I did a stomach acid test, which did show very low levels. http://livingfoods.co.uk/the-acid-test-by-philip-weeks/
Someone on this forum asked whether HCl fixed hypochlorhydria. I thought about this and noticed that after I took HCl I burped repeatedly whenever I took HCl capsules. The burning which is meant to indicate too much HCl only happened very briefly and then stopped. More HCl resulted in increased burping and took around 12 capsules to reach a burning which quickly diminished after burping. I worked out the cause of this and why people have hypochlorhydria. I started spitting out saliva while I was digesting protein and my stomach acid increased but if I swallowed saliva, I burped and stomach acid diminished. I then came across urease, an enzyme used by some bacteria to produce ammonia which is an alkaline. The ammonia neutralizes stomach acidity. Saliva is a source of Urea which is used by Urease enzyme to produce ammonia to stop stomach acid which is a threat to a biofilm. Stomach acid can damage/degrade a biofilm. Although they do adapt and can get around this.
Be aware that hair loss can be caused by poor protein digestion ie lack of amino acids. Chances are that you have hypochlorhydria and your protein digestion is very poor. Your stomach is almost certainly compromised which leaves it open to infection as the stomach is intelligent and attempts to keep it free of infection by parasites and bacteria. Unfortunately it can fail and be compromised.
Swallowing an acid such as lemon juice or vinegar can test this. Prepare some sodium bicarb in warm water. Then prepare some lemon juice or vinegar in about 100ml of warm water. Wash around the mouth to mix saliva and then swallow it. Then quickly wash the sodium bicarb around the mouth and then spit out. DO NOT swallow the sodium bicarb or it will neutralise the acid, it is only meant to eliminate any acid on your teeth. Swallow some saliva and see if you burp.
These infections have to be urease positive to survive in the stomach. Helicobacter Pylori is urease positive and there are other bacteria too. All of these bacteria cause leaky gut. It is caused by their biofilm which replaces sections of stomach mucosa.
These bacteria also compromise methylation processes because methylation begins in the stomach. Taking some MSM can be helpful as it supplies much needed methyl groups. It can also help reduce inflammation. It's helpful to take it with ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
