View Full Version : Strangest detox symptom yet...
06-24-2006, 06:56 AM
I'm pretty sure that this is detox because I have no other way to explain this but earlier today hubby and I went to a restaurant and I ordered from the all you can eat salad bar and packed a plate full of organic greens and a then another plate full of (probably washed but not organic) cataloupe and watermelon slices. I ate the salad first and then ate the melons soon after and as I bit into probably the 3rd piece of cantaloupe I had had, I got a strong moldy taste in my mouth. I assumed that it was the cantaloupe of course and stopped eating that piece and looked at it. It had no visible mold and hubby tasted it and said that it tasted yummy and normal to him so I shrugged it off. Now, 5 hours later, I've been drinking some chilled, purified, fresh water from a clean cup and I suddenly got that moldy taste again. Very strange. Maybe I'm detoxing some kind of mold from my body. These are the only two times toda that I've tasted it, it's only when I've eaten or drunk something. It's no big deal but a little odd. Any thoughts?

I think a piece of fruit can have mold that may not be visable. I had a pint of strawberries where a few tasted moldy but did not look it. Maybe just you piece was moldy and the piece you dh tasted was from another fruit.
Or as you say maybe detox, but that is odd.

He tasted the same piece of fruit so I'm not really sure. If I hadn't tasted it 5 hours later with just plain water I'd shrug it off as moldy fruit. oh well.

I have that same moldy taste in my mouth too,
Yesterday, I picked a huge vat of strawberries for our raw potluck today, and I made strawberrie, apple lemonaid, and it tasted moldy to me, I made a gallon, so I was really bummed that It was ruined, I had Dragggon taste it, and he said it tasted great, I tasted it, same glass and it tasted moldy to me, he tasted it again, he said it was great. we had a friend taste it, he said it was great, I also ate some cherries fresh picked off the tree and some fresh strawberries off the bushes, and I still tasted the mold, Dragggon said they were fine.
I would have thought it was the fruit but even the orange juice I had and the water tasted moldy to me, and to Dragggon it was fine, so I think it must be a detox symptom.
It has also happened twice with pineapple, I ate a bite yesterday and it tasted fermented, ate a bite today, of the same piece, it was fine.
this happened once before, I had tasted the pineapple, it tasted fermented, so I had it ready to go back to the store, the next day, on my way to take it to the store, I opened it, it smelled great, so I took a bite and it was wonderful.
So, I know my tastebuds are changing, and maybe I was just not supposed to eat the pineapple the day it tasted bad, or the strawberries, not sure why, but if it doesn't taste good, I don't eat it, but I don't trust my tastebuds anymore, if something doesn't taste good, I just put it aside until later, as it may taste great then. LOL
Life is funny.

Was it a musty basement sort of taste? I've experienced that after long raw stretches.

"Now, 5 hours later, I've been drinking some chilled, purified, fresh water from a clean cup and I suddenly got that moldy taste again."
At least this part sounds like the Melon Effect, a quite normal reaction. Melons, especially several yellow-colored sorts, change many peoples taste for pure water up to 24 hours.
During the melon season, water-works sometimes get complaints for some weird, mouldy taste of their tap-water.
Don't underestimate the IQ of a melon...
It's as those smart rascals wisper to each-other: Let us change the sense of taste of water, so these people stop drinking water and keep eating more melons instead.

To me canteloupe always tastes like medicine.

I feel so dirty.. LOL

I read sweetgoddes' journal, and she talks about having a detox symptom where everything she ate tasted like mold. My guess would be detox, espesially as your husband said it tasted fine.

I've been noticing odd tastes lately, but not necessarily mold. Odd aromas too. Other people don't notice what I do.

My co-worker brought a plain turkey sandwich to work yesterday, but I could smell the warm yeasty smell and told her that it smelled good. She couldn't believe that I could smell it, and truthfully, I couldn't, either. We had a good chuckle over that.

Probably something in your nose
OLFACTORYBULB, NERVES etc....
sounds odd but when my mother had sinus polyps it affected her sense of taste

Yep, kind of a musty basement, moldy taste, plus the fermented pineapple, funny huh?
How strange, or at least I think it's strange. I know that things taste different to me at different times.

Yes, it was a musty basement type of smell. Exactly. Thanks for the info guys. The melon thing makes sense because I haven't had a moldy taste yet since I woke up today and had a big salad with tomatoes. I won't be stopping melons anytime soon though, I adore them. I've been craving cantaloupe lately.
RP, I know what you mean about the tastebud thing. I still have trouble with some types of leafy greens because they still don't taste very good to me but I know that it will just take my tastebuds time to adjust because my body still wants it even though my mouth doesn't. If that makes any sense at all.
