Detox flares are common.

This was unbelieveable. The pain was crippling. One of the worst ever. I just had to up my dose of prednisone.

How long did it last for you?

i had to take ibuprofen and double my prednisone when it happened. Plus I'm not taking reg meds anymore so was a double whammy. I find it works better if I take ibuprofen and prednisone before bed then I wake up feeling good and can actually be productive during the day

Ibuprofen and other chemicals, though they do ease the pain, are still something the body will try to detox itself from.

Imagine cleaning your pipes using Mr. Muscle.
You let it sit and do its magic... Then you flush the pipes... What is the first thing that will come out? Clean and pure water? Nope, the filth and all things bad.
When you are doing a detox, it often happens that whatever is sore starts being painful even more, but this is temporary. Basically the body is breaking itself so as to rebuild itself.

Exactly, choose when you are doing your fasts... What you can do is try living on fruit for just ten days and see how it goes. Fruit, the jucier the better, kickstarts the detox processes in the body. HOWEVER, you need to understand the lymph system for this to work successfully. WHat facilitates the process of releasing the waste is the lymph system, kidneys, liver and skin. Every time you are doing a fast, it is advised to drink herbal formulas that boost the kidneys and the adrenal glands. Next time, try drinking teas made from parsley, stinging nettle, plantain etc... They are all good for kidneys. This should facilitate the detox process which means that your symptoms, while present, won't be that devastting. If we are stuck with the RA or similar autoimmune nasties, we are already pretty clogged up so there is mroe to detox

Strahinja Newsome will do that next time. I cant believe the pain. I'm still trying to come down.

Laura Bryan Glad I could help. Doing detox if done too quickly can actually be dangerous and people can die from it. If we are too fragile or too clogged up, it is better to take baby steps, like try eating fresh veggies for one day, the following day start eating veggies and fruits, third day eat only fruits... Tomorrow eat more fruits, and all thsi time drink the herbal teas. Then think about doing whatever you feel you must do in terms of fasting. This way, you will have prepared your body a little bit so ti won't be such a shock Fasting and detoxing is an art and is a phenomenal thing, but if done smart and carefully. Sending you lots of love and pain-free hugs
