Sorry, this gets kinda gross, but this is the only place I know to ask about this. I started having major detox symptoms including flu-like symptoms, aching all over, headache, sore throat, feverish. Then I started getting severe diarrhea. It was almost constant with a few breaks and it was the kind where you have to be really close to a bathroom all the time to make sure you don't have an accident. I have just been resting and letting myself get cleaned out, but I really need to go back to work. I teach special ed, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade, and can't be staying in the bathroom. I have been out of school since last Wednesday. I was wondering if there is a way to slow down the detox a little, just so that I can function at school. I really don't want to take meds but may have to so that I can go back to work if it doesn't clear up today some. I ate some cooked vegetable soup last night to try to slow it down and it did for a while, but as soon as I go back to raw, it starts again. The cooked also caused me to have bad heartburn and gas. I'm going to try putting Lifewave patches on Stomach 36 point today, but was wondering if anyone has any advice. I don't really want to stop it, but need to slow it down enough to be able to work. While this has been going on, I have been mostly just drinking water except for a green smoothie yesterday and one today. I have been really nauseated as well and have not felt like I could eat anything.
