View Full Version : Pain in Pancreas or spleen
01-06-2008, 02:20 PM
I did a colon cleanse, Dr. Natura two years ago and during that time and after I experienced a discomfort under my left ribcage. It felt as if a gas bubble was pushing up on my organs. Anyhow I had an MRI that showed everything to be normal. I have been doing 80 -100 % raw for the past 4 weeks. The discomfort is back, and now I feel it in my back as well. I had read through some material from Hippocrates that during detox your spleen can become inflamed. Has anyone else experienced this. I also feel other aches and pain in or around my abdomen, that I know are normal. But this bothers me a little more it seems to be more consistent. I have not been taking digestive enzymes, are these crucial for a raw foodist? Any feedback would be helpful.

Try to avoid cold food. Meaning, if you have a dehydrator use it to warm up your soup or sauce or desert and try to eat no colder then room temperature. There are food that are naturally provide eat, such cayenne pepper, pumpkin, etc....
It is important of listening your body versus what you think is good for you. If you feel just eating onion just eat that, if you feel just eating a certain raw food just go like that.
Have you consider to increase your greens such green smoothies www.rawfamily .com they provide great information. Leafy greens helps to balance our body beside many other benefit.
If you eat cook food still, please stay away from any toxic one or alcohol such fast food, white sugar, etc.... Instead choose steam vegetables, steam brown rice and organic vegan.
I wish you well and hoping someone will more experience will be able to assist you. Spleen could be quite complex but nothing is impossible.

It could be that you have a small amount of gas trapped at your spleenic flexure which is the turn your colon makes from your transverse to your descending.
It may help if you massage your large intestine/colon when you feel the pain. Start low on your right side (near your appendix) and work up and then across at navel level to the other side and then down.
You could also consider a trip to a certified colon hydrotherapest.
At least you know that there is nothing wrong anatomically as it would have shown up in the MRI.
