Hi! I need some help, I started the Master-Cleanse fast the other day and yesterday evening I was having severe problems with my breathing. I've just somewhat gotten over having bronchitis for 5 1/2 months and asthma attacks. I was on three inhalers, Advair (I quit taking it cause I got horrible headaches from it), Asthmacort, and Albuterol. Also because I have severe allergies I was on Clarinex and Rhinocort Nasal Spray.
It got to the point I was bedridden from it for about 3 weeks then I couldn't breath hardly at all and all of the coughing was keeping me from sleeping normal. I also had to sleep sitting up because laying down made it worse. So I went to th emergency room 3 weeks ago and got a prescription for Prednisone that lasted for 12 days and its now been 10 days since I've been off of the medicine. Before taking it I really felt like I was dying and I've never felt that way before in my life. I started feeling so much better, before I felt like only 30-40% of my lungs was being used and by the time I finished the prescription it opened it up so much it felt like I was probably up to using 70-80% see I don't really know because they didn't test me to see. While on the meds I started reading and researching to find something to rid me of the terrible allergies, asthma and bronchitis because I was worried it was only a temporary fix.
Anyway I tried a couple of days of enemas to cleanse myself out, then I found this site and read about the Master-Cleanse fast. I was a little concerned if I should do a fast or not, because I started fasting on just water or liquids when I was 14 years old. I would do this all the time throughout my life and I can't help but to wonder if it contributed to my sickness.
I read how on the Lemonade Diet you are getting all of the nutrients your body needs and I started it Tuesday. Seemed like everything was okay, then yesterday evening I took a big turn for the worse. My breathing difficulties and coughing returned and I once again got back on my inhaler and slept sitting up where I could breath. I did notice that I was passing all kinds of strange stuff in my stools including mucus, other hard stuff not normal and a couple of things that looked like worms.
Can someone offer some advice? What should I do? Continue the lemon diet fast and rough it out? Add something else to the fast? Please help and please be specific with your advice. I don't want to be where I can't do anything but lounge around in bed. I used to go to the gym and work out on a regular basis and now I can't do anything. I know there are so many factories in the area where I'm living now and that's contributed to all of this (the chemicals that send out through their stacks into the air) but I'm sure it has much more to do with the fact that my body is full of so many toxins and all.
