GCG is okay, the cooling effect is very mild, shouldn't hurt you at all if you use ginger or hot pepper later on with your meals. And the curcuma is also not so bad. It is similar to curry in Indian foods, its effect is mild warm with pungent taste, something your body needs anyway.
I had been in similar situation like you before, and now I am fine and have energy going back to school. Compare the feeling before and now is just like comparing day and night, black and white, a big difference. Anyway, hope you will get well soon after a successful flush, many people have done it and you can too.
