The Detox Results
Recently went on the Juvanex 7-day detox regimen to see if it would improve my eczema.
The nasty preliminary symptoms didn’t really hit me. Maybe because I’ve been on a vegetarian diet. Taken from the Juvanex website:
Detoxification is a unique experience for everyone, depending on their toxicity levels and existing health condition.
You may feel a bit weak at the start of a detox. This is normal, because it is at this point that your body dumps toxins (stored in your fat cells and organs) into the blood stream for elimination.
In the first 3 days, you may experience unpleasant short-term reactions such as:
- Mild diarrhoea – nope
- Excretion of pungent dark faeces or yellow faeces which floats on water – YES! (see pics below)
- Frequent urination – not more than usual
- Fatigue, sleepiness, irritability – not more than usual
- Coated tongue – not more than usual
- metallic taste in mouth – not more than usual
- mouth ulcer – thankfully, no
- Headache, nausea, vomiting – thankfully, no
These are signs that your body is in the process of cleansing itself of toxins. The more toxic you are, the more severe the symptoms may be.
So, it seems I experienced the most important symptom of all: elimination of toxins via stools.
Here’s a photo log of my stools.
Day 1: (no photo) stools look normal. Slightly green.
Day 3: no bowel movement
Stools are huge again. It’s not apparent from this angle but the stool is actually floating! It’s the biggest floater I’ve ever produced! The piece at the back is studded with undigested sesame seeds. Smell is horrible: no surprise.
Day 5: no bowel movement
This has got to be one of the biggest dumps ever. It looks like my entire bowels came out. The stools came out quite easily though. And they were soft. So, I was surprised to see blood on the stools. Smell is revolting.
Day 7: no bowel movement
Despite the impressive ‘production’, my skin condition hasn’t improved a great deal. Some sites are drying up but I’ve still got weeping ones and distressing itching episodes at night. Kind of disappointed.
