i was very constipated for nearly three days with little b/m, and was beginning to get very worried. my tummy was bigger than when i began my juice fast 7 days ago. not wanting to take any addictive laxative during my detox, i searched my local markets for organic/presertive free prunes with no success. a neighbour gave me a kilo of sundried prunes this afternoon, i didn't really want to eat them at first because the lable says these prunes were preserved with potassium sorbate. but i was getting so desperate with cramps and bloatedness, i ate 10 this evening.
well boy did it work! within 5 hours i starting to feel the urge to go to the loo, and at first some green semi-gelly like stuff came out. after that my cramping was still pretty bad, so i gave myself a warm weak saline enema, and that was pretty painful cos i was sooo full in my colon! i think over 1 liter of half-digested prune/water came out and i felt so much lighter!
i weighed myself on the scale before and after me eating prunes: i've lost 2.4 kilos of waste in my bowel! unbelievable!!
now the question is, were those prunes really bad for me since they were preserved with preservative, should i rather try herbal laxative next time? and are prunes addictive?
another question, what was the green soft jelly like thing in my stool? could it be my veggie juice and psyllium? or colon mucous?
