i am so sick

I'm in bed writing this...feeling like my insides are more than a tad kiddie-wompus. (Is that a word?)  I'm also sore, achy and lethargic.

I found this article and hope it is accurate.  If these symptoms last more than a day - I don't know how I can do this.

Cross your fingers.

I've been a reader for a while but have never commented. Please keep us posted on how this goes... I've thought many times about doing a detox or cleanse myself and I'm really curious whether the article turns out to be true!

Hi, unsolicited opinion here:
I did the anti-candida cleanse a month ago to clear oral thrush. It's quite similar to the 21-day cleanse. I lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks(unhealthy) and broke out with a raging rash on my chest. On "Super Skinny Me" on BBC they showed a girl on an extreme diet with the same awful rash. So, don't eliminate everything so quickly or you'll stress your immune system. I would ease into it for at least a week.

I'm on day 8 of this ridiculous cleanse & loved reading your posts. I feel incredibly weird eating in front of other people & trying to shop for acceptable food. I haven't had headaches, etc. but after reading that article you found, I'm a little scared of what might be lurking inside my body still. I have no idea why I jumped onto the Oprah bandwagon, but I'm sticking with it. Hope you feel better!

I've been following this since you started and oh my hell, Carol, I can't believe you're doing this. I would last approximately THREE MINUTES. MAYBE TWO.

there is a vegan restaurant in town... i tried it once and everything was so fresh that i was sick... or rather.... cleansed for 2 days.

good luck!

I read through that doctor's website, and, honestly, it reads more like a sales pitch than a doctor's recommendation. The checklist of "symptoms" indicating you should go on a detox diet includes many bullet points that are not things that could be considered symptoms (exercising less than twice a week isn't a symptom of anything except maybe being busy or lazy; same with drinking coffee/soda or smoking cigarettes). Weird on a site written by a doctor; you would think she would know the definition of a symptom -- unless she's trying to sell something (or isn't really a doctor). Sorry to be the skeptic on this one (there's always one, right?), but something just isn't adding up.

Maybe, just to be smart, schedule a check-up with your GP so there's a real doctor onboard.
