sassafras Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 Hi, I'm on day 15 and my stomach really hurts. I caught a 'bug' of some sort earlier this week, and am wondering if anyone has any advise on how to get through this without a visit to the doctor (and a recommendation of antibiotics). Here is my 'diary': I was gassy and lethargic all day Sunday, so kept low key all day assuming it would pass and was part of the program. Monday I felt ok. Tuesday I started getting the chills late morning. They didn't go away until late evening, when my body started aching. I ate chicken w/ ginger soup (yum!), and could only stomach eating an orange that evening. I had NO appetite (presumable because I was fighting a 'bug'). Wednesday the chills were gone. I had major stiffness in neck and shoulders. My digestive system felt very raw and I was hesitant to eat anything that would require it to work much, so I had a fruit and coconut milk smoothie for a late breakfast. For lunch I forced myself to eat brisket and steamed greens (which went down much better than I had anticipated), and for dinner a giant sweet potato loaded with butter and some sea salt. Today, Thursday, my intestines feel inflamed. I am having a hard time staying seated at my desk and feel miserable. I had sweet potato and brisket for breakfast, and am in so much pain I do NOT want to eat anything else. I feel like I am working through some intestinal 'sloughing', but I feel like it is worsened by a germ I picked up, and I do not know what to do about it. Any helpful home remedies would be most appreciated!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
