Okay ... so I need a bit of help! I've been raw 5-6 months now, and I just started my first juice fast 7 days ago. I mostly wanted to do this because I've been constipated and breaking out (my first real signs of detox since I started). Things have been getting a little better, but I've still only had about two 'BM's since I started the fast. I looked into ways to get things moving and came across warm lemon juice .. it seemed to be helping, but, not to over-share or anything, but I started to get the runs. This never happened to me before. Still, the constipation problem hasn't been solved, and it seems just like a lot of the beet juice I've been drinking is well .. going out the wrong end. I know this is not pleasant at all, but you can understand my concern! I didn't give myself a time frame for my fast, but I was hoping to do it until my bowels were in working order.
My question is .. should I stop the fast now? Is this normal? I've heard of this happening on the Master Cleanse, but I thought juicing would be different. Anyone have any sound advice?
In case it's relevant I've been having 4-7 cups or so of juice a day, Rejuvelac and warm lemon juice in the morning / during the day, spinach, celery, lettuce, sprouts, cucumber, zucchini, carrots, beets, apples, oranges .. that may be it. Any guidance would be absolutely appreciated!!
