View Full Version : mucus?!
12-18-2007, 08:29 AM
Okay, I did a 22 day juice fast that was broken on november 28...about 20 days ago. Since then, I have NOT stopped coughing up mucus. I mean, it is a LOT of thick, heavy dark green stuff. Sometimes it is so much that it gags me. This is embarassing at work and in public when I have to spit in tissues everywhere I go, every 5 minutes. It is especially bad when I first wake up and after I eat food or drink juice.
I'm not sick, and feel great. What's going on? Detox? Did the juice fast loosen all the mucus and the food is bringing it up? I need an explanation!

I don't have an explanation, but I'd just like to let you know that you're not alone! It must be detox.
Mine isn't is bad as yours, as it happens usually only every 20 min. I didn't juice fast, either. For me it happened a few days after I went raw. It must be detox.

Where are some good articles on doing a juice fast? I've been about 80% raw for the past 4 months (amortized), with a max of 14 days 100%. I'm on day 6 right now. :P But I'd like to try a juice fast as that might speed up detox, perhaps?

thanks, starfire! I pretty much spit every time I cough.. and I keep thinking "this has been inside of me for HOW long?!" I am SO happy that it's coming out, as it obviously needs to!
Futureboy, a great source for juice fasting is right here! Just go to the fasting forum or do a banana search and you can get a wealth of info and knowledge, as I did. Good luck and congrats on embarking on a raw/ juice journey!

Mucus is number one cause of dis- ease. Expelling it is great. I once did it for three months straight! Couldn't believe the stuff that came up! I had a detox cold for the past two weeks and it keeps coming up. Yep, better out than living inside ME!
