Bannanagirl- sorry you are having problems with it. Are you using green cabbage? Maybe all the items combined are a bit much on your system. I agree with stereofidelic, maybe start off in small doses or just the cabbage juice. It is possible you are simply sensitive to it. Our DD cause us to be so different in what works and what doesn't work. Keep me posted.
Stereofidelic- I am doing sooo much better. I think it is slowly helping my bowel also. I am now able to use the bathroom more than just a little at a time. Before starting the cabbage juice, I felt like I was going to pop. I wasn't moving much gas or stool through my system and I felt inflamed from stomach to colon. As each day passed with drinking the juice, the symptoms are getting better each day. Today I feel almost normal in the stomach and much better in the bowel. I have a colonoscopy scheduled on Monday. I have to do the prep this weekend so today is my last day I am allowed the cabbage juice but I will resume it after the colonoscopy. I haven't added anything to the mix yet but I will next week.
Mum of 3- I am drinking raw green cabbage freshly juiced. As soon as I juice it, I am gulping it down, holding my nose because it doesn't taste great, LOL. It has helped me considerably. Your naturopath was right, at least in my case:) I will definitely buy organic cabbage next time I go to Whole Foods.Thanks for reminding me about buying it organic. The last thing I need is more chemicals in my body, LOL!
