I am glad you are researching a bit before you do this. It is not something I would reccommend for us. If you feel strongly that you need to detox how about doing a one day fast with fresh juices and lots of water. Then the next day or two eat only unprocessed naturally gluten free food, (that is how I eat every day but many can't live without their premade stuff). Your body will naturally detox itself if you give it good whole foods and drop anything processed for a bit. The boxed detoxes can be rather dangerous for folks whose systems are already compromised.

Hi,

I looked for some info on that myself a while ago, and came across a book by sandra cabot, called 'the liver cleansing diet' (the liver being our detoxorgan). It's quite good, and has recipes in it as well. No medicins suggested, only some herbs and otherwise a lot of commonsense suggestions. With all your foodallergies you would probably have to adjust some of the recipes. Might be interesting to look into it..

You might read up on far-infrared saunas. I have FIR sauna and my skin has never felt better. It has obviously drawn out a lot of toxins. They draw out much more than traditional saunas with a much lower heat ... things like heavy metals, pollutants, plastics, etc. The heat from this goes deep into tissue and draws out the impurities.

I have a Sunlight Sauna .... mine was expensive (though they have cheaper models), but I know there are saunas for as low as $300.

I also feel that eating a higher percentage of raw fruits and veggies is good. Check out the Fit For Life books (though a bit sarcastic, they have good info). You can also check out Harvey Diamond on my space.

Humaworm (www.humaworm.com) is a very good all-over parasite cleanse.

A warm epsom salt bath is detoxing .... 2 cups espsom salts, one cup baking soda.

Lemon water is alkalinizing. You should be drinking 2-3 quarts of water daily.

These are things I've had good results from.

I am looking into this too thanks for the post you guys.

I am currently eating 2 Milk Thistle capsule a day as a supplement and I drink the lemon water too.

I keep it chilled in the fridge in a pitcher :)

Good luck with your healing :)

This is the detox I did that eventually helped me figure out that I am GI.

A good morning detox/metabolism booster drink is lemon water with a bit of ginger and garlic grated in along with a dash of cayenne. If my joints are swollen, I add turmeric. ;)

Seaweed is really good to eat because it takes out a lot of heavy metals from your body. Add it to some homemade miso soup because miso also helps the body to natural detoxify. Hope this helps!

    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
