Hey there. I see you posted this to the Master-Cleanse and Liver Flush Forum s among others. The Master Cleanse is where I started my alternative health education also and it is a good thing to know. However, after everything I've read, many of the single, smaller solutions won't do enough for you. You're body needs to regenerate and fasting alone can't do it. One tenant of fasting is that you have to rebuild your nutrient stores in between. If your bones are degenerating at age 17, I worry you don't have what you need. On a side note, it's great you've added veggies and green smoothies.
Liver Flushing is a slow process and still I think with symptoms as great as yours, you need an intense program. I've read a lot over the years and have lately reading a lot of good stuff about Dr. Schulze and his Incurables Protocol that he does. There are a few major things to know:
- Dr. Schulze says when the body has trouble, go to juice. Stop eating. OJ fasts are nice, but he really means get a juicer. I know they're pricey but at your level of trouble, it seems imperative. His protocols will have you juicing beets, greens, cabbage, carrots, parsley, etc.
- Continue bowel cleansing until you are going 2-3x daily - you should go shortly after a meal. I haven't attained this but I'm much closer than I was! His Intestinal Formula #1 is a great start and the cleans goes with IF#2 as well.
- Superfoods are a great way to build your nutrition so your body CAN rebuild your bones.
- Echinacea is a must to build the immune system. This means the real stuff. I've recently learned why pills are ineffective compared to tea, which I've been using for a while, and tincture is much stronger, however health food stores water them down, filter out a lot of the echinacea, they "standardize" meaning they isolate 1 component of the herb and trash the rest! Not good. Some Tinctures are made with water only, and this is barely effective for some herbs that need alcohol to extract the good stuff in the tincture.
So in short: Bowel Cleanse, Superfoods, Echinacea and juice fast if you can afford it.
Here's a link to a wealth of information on the Natural Healing forum where Unyquity dispenses much Dr. Schulze information:
She and her husband Rocky also have a store with the same things on Dr. Schulze's website for much cheaper. (The link is on the Natural Healing forum.) Plus they give you the formulas if you're adventurous. You can make your own, buy from them or buy Schulze products from amazon if you like. There is also a Schulze Forum and you can search to find videos on his healing crusade.
I hope this helps. Once your nutrition stores are re-built, and your immune system is in full swing, later you may want to come back on and check out diets by some good docs like Dr. Fuhrman. For your situation, however, I'd strongly suggest going to juice. And just so you know, some skinny people with compromised immune systems reportedly gained weight on highly nutritious vegetable-rich juice fasting.
This should give you some stuff to think about and a TON of stuff to read. I wish you the very best of luck.
