Thanks so much for addressing my concerns and sharing your experience. Definitely the period is a bonus 'cause I'm really not hungry (craving, yes!, but not physically hungry - amazing!). I guess you're right about the cleansing AND the cycle happening at the same time - a double cleanse almost. I have to say, my period is not as painful as usual and I've been fine with no painkillers - just doing some chanting every now and then to help with the mild cramping! I have stuck with the lax tea, although after the first day I was ready to give it up and just hope for the best as I experienced diarreah and a mild hemorroid flare up. But I'm still taking it, although now nothing's happening. I think you're right and I'm going to have to give in and do the salt water flush. I feel very weak today, and last night was hell - no sleep, aching, hot and cold. Definitely a sign that the toxins are moving. Should I do the flush in the morning or at night? I'm also doing the dry brush.
Thanks again for your help...and good luck to you, you're almost there!
