I found this info while reading other MC blogs. This information is so valuable, I thought I'd put it in my own blog (with thanks to Peanut and the Tummy Temple).
Detox info from the Tummy Temple
Symptoms and treatments for detoxing
Here is an excerpt from my post colonic pamphlet (courtesy of Tummy Temple ), which I felt summarized much of what I've seen on the MC forum. Detoxification Reactions and Support... While cleansing you may experience digestive upsets, constipation, diarrhea, headaches, cold/flu symptoms, slight nausea, etc. Do not be alarmed or suppress these symptoms as these are normal during any detoxification process and provide valuable information on what's going on in your body. Each symptom points to one defective organ:
Sick feeling: This can come from the liver or gall bladder.
Dizziness: Both the liver and the gall bladder could be defective.
Hot sensation: Kidney and/or reproductive system defective.
Chill: Weak kidney and/or reproductive system.
Reddening: Possible arterial hypertension.
Energy decrease: Spleen or pancreas. Symptoms of hypoglycemia or diabetes are also possible.
The following are some suggestions that may help alleviate some of the uncomfortable symptoms:
Try taking a lukewarm bath with 1 cup of Epsom salts and/or 1 cup of raw apple vinegar (Omega brand is highly recommended). In a warm bath, add salts/vinegar and soak for 20-30 minutes.
Teas or tinctures containing Milk Thistle or Dandelion Root will help support the liver in rebuilding and releasing toxins. The Root of It and Long Life tea lines provide delicious, organic formulas great for detoxifying.
Make sure to get plenty of rest and do not engage in strenuous exercise if you are feeling weak. The body needs time and rest to heal. Use this time to rejuvenate.
Dry skin brushing with a natural bristle brush will help to detoxify the skin and stimulate the lymphatic system. The brush should be kept dry. The body should be dry, and the brush should be passed over the skin in clean sweeping motion-no back and forth scrubbing motions. Always brush towards the heart and focus particular attention on the concentrated lymph area: the neck, armpits, abdomen, groin, and behind the knees. Use circular motions in these areas and always brush lightly as superficial lymph vessels are directly beneath the skin. Skin brushing should be done once or twice a day. In times of intense toxicity, the brushing can be increase to four times per day.
When abdominal cramping ensues after a treatment it is helpful to massage the abdomen clockwise and apply direct heat with a hot water bottle. Adding castor oil pacts to this can relax the colon muscles, loosen material, and encourage its evacuation. This involves soaking strips of natural cotton cloth (washcloth, towel, etc) in warmed Castor oil, applying them to the abdomen, covering with plastic wrap, and topping it off with direct heat. Keep the compress in place for 60-90 minutes.
Mustard food soaks are particularly helpful for toxic headaches, generalize "goopy" toxic symptoms, muscle aches and pains, and water retention in the ankles or other parts of the body. In a basin of warm water, add one tablespoon of mustard and a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Sit in a comfortable chair and soak you feet in the basin for 20-30 minutes. The mustard soaks can be repeated 2-3 times each day, and should be continued during periods of intense toxicity.
Enemas. Nothing takes care of a detoxify reaction like a simple enema. This gives your body a quick and easy boost by gently flushing out what's currently in the blood stream. Different types of bags are available but the cheapest and best are the traditional "red bags" at you your local pharmacy just over ten dollars. Lie down in the bath tub on a towel and hang it about a meter high. Make sure to use lubricant and the regulator on the "in-flow" tube to determine the flow that feels most comfortable.
Drink high concentrate organic ALOE and, better yet, use the aloe for implants directly into the colon to soothe the walls of the colon, reduce inflammation and support the healing damaged cells.
Remember, detox reactions are a sign that your body is working to remove toxins. Although unpleasant at times try to look at these symptoms as proof that your body is actually healing. You are going through the process of clearing these symptoms from your body. Stay in the process and appreciate all the hard work that your amazing body is doing!
