Just a side thought...have you ever been checked for gluten intolerance or Celiac's disease? Not that I'm at all saying that's what it is, but it goes undiagnosed in a major percentage of sufferers. If when you are doing a liquid diet you are removing all gluten from your diet (which could very well be happening), you'd see relief in symptoms, which would return upon adding gluten back to your diet. There could of course be tons of other issues as well, but that just came to mind. That may be a thought to bring up to your doctor. Don't give up!
One thought I have - have you tried a truly gluten free diet? Wheat is only one source of gluten, there are many more which could cause you distress if that is a problem for you. Here's a good reference:http://www.celiachealth.org/pdf/GlutenFreeDietGuideWeb.pdf
I really wish you could get a proper evaluation, you may have a lot of issues going on, and I definitely can't fix them all appropriately over the internet, lol. I hope you can see someone soon :(
If you haven't done a full gluten free diet, I'd give that a shot for at least a month or two (since your doctor recommended gluten free anyways) to see if that helps.
Take a look at the notes of Angela Stokes on "Juice Feasting" - http://www.juicefeasting.com/Consultants/AngelaStokes/tabid/73/Default.aspx
Good for you for sticking with it, but be careful that you get all the nutrients you need. I have just started a juice fast and am on day 3 now.
I think I will be lucky to make it for a week to 10 days!
healthy choice supplements----discount supplements
If anyone is really interested in doing a safe and great fast there is a website called "The Master Cleanse" or the Limonade diet.... but its not really a diet at all. Its a Detoxing formula to clean-out and detox your body...They recommend doing it for adleast 10 days... Which I did last September.
I'm doing it again but for 21 days. I have some health issues that I'm wanting get rid of.I feel I have toxic acid crystals in my joints in my feet and ankles.They are stiff and I can hardly walk. I know fasting will help.This is day 5 for me and I already feel some changes in my problem.I really believe in this Master Diet. Look it up on the internet.. they have forums so you can look up different issues. YOu will be very informed about fasting.The web site explains everything on how to do the Master Cleanse.
I must say it is hard to find some of the items that is used on the fast.. organic lemons,organic Maple syrup or Agave, Organic sea salt for the salt water flush and smooth move tea to help with flushing also... I hope this helps someone.
I wish you all the best if you do this,Mexigirl
I tried the master cleanse and it really screwed me up.
There is no way to get the nutrients you need from maple syrup and lemons. I did it myself and had severe headaches and dizziness for several days, even with altering the amounts so that there was more maple to help me with the low blood sugar.
And I lost weight, only to gain twice as much back. I followed it right, even with the orange juice then raw foods. I'm healthy, vegan, and with the healthy vegan diet that includes an occassional vegan donut or other treat, there is no need to cleanse my body. I have no animal fat, puss, hormones, etc that don't belong in my body going in, so there is nothing to cleanse out.
Anyway, do research on the master cleanse before doing it at all or even again.
It's a hoax. The person who made it up isn't even a real nutritionalist and I should have done my research as well.
Before starting any diet, I strongly recommend seeing your dietitian or doctor.

How long did you continue with juice only?
Will you share what your typical day was like in terms of everything you consumed after you reached past day 120?
How are you feeling these days?
What is your current diet like?
This thread is pretty inspiring, sorry I never commented on it before.
