Liver Cleanse – Day 5

My stomach feels broken.

I don’t know if it’s meant to be like this and I have no idea how long it will take to pass. I just want it to be over. My stomach is hurting so bad right now. I feel so horrible. There is air moving around in my stomach because I haven’t eaten all day. My stomach is making weird creaking noises and there is this wrenching pain that comes and goes. It feels like someone plunged a spear in, pushed it all the way through and just before it penetrates the other side, it is pulled back out only to be plunged right in again a few minutes later.

My upper stomach feels like the first millisecond you put your finger in fire. It burns but only slightly – quite like the burn you get from drinking alcohol or some sharp ginger juice.

And to think I have to do this again in a week. Granted, it’s not that bad. I’ve taken herbal medicines that have caused much worse pain, but this isn’t fun.

Initially, my stomach felt very light and digestion felt proper – better than it had in a long time. But an hour later, this pain kicked in and my stomach started creaking. Sigh. I’ve got a raging headache as well. Here is what I had to do today:

Have my last meal of the day at lunchtime. Drink apple juice

6pm: Drink apple juice with 1 tbsp Epsom salt

8pm: Drink apple juice with 1 tbsp Epsom salt

10pm: Half cup grapefruit juice + half cup olive oil

I would seriously recommend small doses or people who are as sensitive to stimulants like I am. MUCH smaller doses.

UPDATE: Okay, I have been feeling slightly lighter and better after the detox. My doctor says my stomach and gallbladder seem much better now and that the detox went well. I hope I never have to do this again! Wasn’t fun at all! The apple juice was delicious but drinking so much of it in one day was just too much for me lol.
