I AM 27 FEMALE THREE KIDS POST HYSTERECTOMY AND PARTIAL OOPH (NO LEFT OVERY, JUST RIGHT ONE LEFT) FOR ABOUT A YEAR I HAVE HAD SYMPTOMS OF MALABSORBTION AS WELL AS MUCH PAIN TO THE UPPER LEFT SIDE UNDER RIB CAGE AND LEFT LOWER PAIN IN ABD, TENDER IF I PUSH ON IT(ESPECIALLY AFTER WALKING WHICH I LOVE TO DO EVERYDAY:( AS WELL AS THE PAIN BETWEEN SHOULDER BLADES, I AM FIVE FOUR, ABOUT 118 LBS. ALSO DEVELOPED A CHALAZION, WAS PUT ON EFFEXOR AND WITH REALLY ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS CHOSE TO GET OFF AND FEELING BETTER BUT THE WITHDRAWLS ARE EXTREMELY HARD TO ENDURE WITH THREE KIDS AND THE REST OF THIS PAIN. ANY ANSWERS WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED, I AM ALSO IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MASTER CLEANSE DIET TODAY, I FIGURED IF I CLEANSE THE COLON, IT MAY HELP?
Your colon is not 'dirty'. The idea of colon cleansing, liver flushing, etc. etc. is way out of date. It's based on what people (mostly European) believed 100 yrs ago, but in fact has no merit at all. Ask your MD and watch him laugh. The alternative med. community makes a fortune off people who think they need cleansing, etc., but your body does the job for you all by itself. If there is something wrong with your system, cleansing is not the answer, proper diagnosis of the specific problem is, then of course treatment, whether with meds, lifestyle changes or surgery.
It seems you've posted this in the Yoga section and I presume there was a reason for doing so. However that is not clear to me from the text of your post.
From the yoga perspective you may find some relief working directly with a qualified yoga teacher. By "qualified" I mean one with more than 500 hours of training, registered with the Yoga Alliance (RYT), with training in restoratives and therapeutics, and 5-10 years of teaching an alignment-based practice.
Unlike the previous poster, I don't have the same affinity for a medical model which treats symptoms rather than causes, fails to look at the body as a whole, and uses prescription meds or scalpels as their two primary tools. But we're not talking about me. We're talking about you.
I will however reinforce that the body is designed to purge toxins all by itself. However there may be instances where juice fasting or dietary changes, be they temporary or permanent, may help some people at some points for some things. This due in part to the tainting of our air, water, and food supply over the last 50 years.
actually by day three of the ten days, i felt energy, no heartburn, my water weight and swelling all over went down, i looked completely toned... i dont believe for a second it did not help dramatically. with the issues i have been having, i can tell what my body is doing, and it sure liked the cleanse. and going on a med for "treatment" is alot of what put me in this night mare, via the reason im looking for alternatives, i appreciate any effort for someone to answer me, but that reply is based on opinions, there is research both ways on things like that, and like i said meds is what cause allot of my really serious problems- thanks so much for responding tho- it means allot to me! :)
