Thanks for your suggestions. It's definitely not an old injury, I think it's probably kidney related. I am using Grade B, organic, syrup. I ordered the ingredients to do the "Ultimate Fast" today, so I'm going to up the ante a little I guess and try to get rid of a fungal rash, that I hope the parasite cleanse will take care of. I'm doing that because the Liver Flush and kidney flush literature says you should be parasite free before you begin those protocols. It's not clear to me, however, if after the 8 day Ultimate Fast, if I'll be parasite free, since it says to continue taking those supplements. But I guess I'll be close enough? I'm really starting to look forward to eating again, and between the Ultimate Fast and The Master Cleanse I'll have gone a total of 19 days without eating. Wish me luck. I love this message board.
