Fasting As A Jump Start Cleanse

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried or considered doing a clear liquids fast for 3 days or so to jump start the cleansing of glutens & iodine. I'm not talking about fasting by drinking only water but rather a fast where you drink say organic (nothing added) apple juice, broths, cranberry juice etc... (all clear liquids). Nothing that would have any chance of having gluten or being CC & none of it would contain iodine.

What do you think the merits would be of that? I tend to think it might help a great deal to cleanse the gluten & iodine out of your body or at least get the whole process jump started.

I Googled it & came up with nothing on the subject.

Let's discuss this.

I would say if it's gluten free and iodine free why not try? If you get miraculous results, please share!

I have seen research indicating that an "Elemental Diet" can give some people quick relief. So I checked into that. It is a medical diet and it is expensive.

i have run across this "elemental diet" term recently and never heard of it before.

what exactly IS this diet composed of? and what makes it expensive?

i have had dh for 7+ years and getting worse even tho ive gone gluten-free for several months now. i just joined this forum and already learned a great deal by reading what y'all are saying...im soo happy to have this kind of support for this relentless and tormenting disease.

as far as cleansing is concerned, i like your idea of fasting on clear juice and broth etc...i have met some dh sufferers in my local support group who swear by the "Redmond Clay" aka: bentonite clay, which is for internal and external use - supposed to "draw out" toxins both topically and internally.there are many uses....i have not tried it yet. anyone ever hear of this stuff?

Here is one definition I found:

The elemental diet consists solely of a liquid formula containing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats and carbohydrates, and it's often delivered through a feeding tube.

It is in liquid form and is used to feed people who are on a feeding tube. It also can be useful for IBS and Crohns. You can find preparations that you drink.

I don't think you can make it yourself. When I was considering it, I searched for products and found that it was expensive to use it exclusively for nutrition. The amount of $400.00 per week comes to mind (but it has been awhile). I am including a link to a product that is available at Walgreens. There are other products available as well, just search on the internet and you will find them.
