Hi Doc!

Hope all's well. I have a question for you. how long does it take the gut to heal itself? I realize I've done a good amount of damage with the laxatives. I have hardly eaten a thing in the past 24 hours. Haven't taken my usual amount of laxatives either. I have not completely fasted, but whatever I've eaten, I've exercised and tried some of the elimination cycles.

Just curious as to when I can expect natural release...going to the bathroom and just feeling the gut relax fully and not feel tight. I think, because of the laxatives and sugar, my gut is always tight and it's hard for my body to relax. I've learned how greatly the gut affects everything. When it starts to empty itself and I get the gurgling and my eyes itch until they are relieved, the whole body starts to open up. It's like all my chakras become unblocked.

I'm hopeful to continue not eating AT ALL. I have no desire or hunger. I just hope for some relief in the gut area, and thought I'd ask how long you think it may take.

Many thanks!!

Well dear Danielle, it's a bit like asking what precisely is the length of a piece of string... it depends. Some wounds heal in hours, some in days, some never. Generally a damaged nerve is expected to grow back at a rate of up to 10 millimeters per day.

Please bear in mind that a small volume of food can create a problem in the gut: It is designed to move bulky content. If there is a little bit in it, it finds it very difficult to move that little bit. Do read up on how peristalsis works. That's why I prefer to either eat or fast, and practically never follow a low residue diet, not even for one day.

The natural bulking of the gut content is of course fiber. But we do sometimes flush the gut with liquid to temporarily cleanse it. Unfortunately there's no completely natural substance to do it with (except for germs causing gastro-enteritis!) which is why I do prescribe the macrogols on rare occasions.

Thank you so much. I had no idea about eating a little amount of food causing a problem. That is a HUGE piece of information. I am going to fast and really give my gut a rest. It just seems like there's no other way to heal it besides resting it. Exercise helps somewhat, but even that hasn't been giving me relief. I had a feeling I wasn't releasing because I don't eat much. I'm so glad you told me this.
I will read up on peristalsis. Do you think I should take a Macrogol packet? I have them, but have resisted taking them, as you said they aren't always necessary. Perhaps I'll just commit to fasting this week-end, and see how things go! I appreciate your wisdom. :)

Try MISO soup. It's very cleansing. Within 12 hours you will have results even without eating anything. I buy Edward & Sons MISO-cup savory soup with seaweed. It's amazing. It is considered a live food like yogurt.

Please bear in mind, dear toniag, that "live food"s are all killed by cooking. There are millions of different substances sold to us with a promise and a marketing budget, but only Mother Nature uses pure biofeedback and only fasting has been proven effective in all conditions/situations.

May I suggest you get a table of contents so we can evaluate that.

Toniag, Danielle, to the Dr's point I've found raw foods like un pasteurized sauerkraut help with the gut. I also buy miso paste and make my own miso soup. You add the miso after the stock has cooled to being just warm.
Hope this helps.

Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.
