I’m only on day (morning!) 2 and all went well yesterday but I went to bed with a nasty headache – which I expected- then woke at midnight vomiting. Feel terrible this morning.
I’m following ‘the safe and proper cleanse’ so, lemon water and veges only – haven’t had any eggs yet. I’m also taking a dandelion/milk thistle/taurine/lecithin combot and took some vitamin C yesterday too. I CAN’T GET ANY MOLYBEDENUM 🙁
So my question is – do you think the headache/vomiting is die off? Or do you think I should be stopping the cleanse and going straight to the strict diet. Just a bit worried because it says on the site to stop the cleanse immediately if I experience any nausea/light headedness. Also I had a lymphatic infection in January (took 5 lots of antibiotics hence my return to this diet) and all though I waited until I was completely better to start the diet (bloods all clear). I really don’t want to get sick again! If it is just die off then I will ride it out. Anyone else suffer from bad headaches/vomiting in the cleansing period? Thanks.February 13, 2012 at 1:27 pm #73395

Sorry you are feeling so sick. I just ordered chelated molybdenum from vitaminshoppe.com and it looks as though they ship to New Zealand as well?
Here’s the link if you want it.

Thanks so much wishnhope. Will look into it, hadn’t thought about ordering from overseas, hopefully it doesn’t cost too much for shipping!
I’m feeling a little better, although struggling to eat anything today. Drinking lots of water (with lemon sometimes) though!!
Has anyone else experienced vomiting and headache as part of die off symptoms?? Thanks 🙂February 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm #73424

The headache is normal, the vomiting is not normal. Are you taking psyllium husks? Vomiting is sorta normal after taking psyllium…

Thanks, no, haven’t taken psyllium husks. I did have a hot bath with 1 cup of epsom salts in it and felt a bit funny after the bath (nauseous) (went straight to bed, fell asleep, woke 3 hours later and threw up) I wonder if it was the bath? Or maybe the headache was so bad that it upset my stomach.
I am feeling ok-ish now, just a bit weak but certainly not faint or nauseous. Will keep an eye on it and possibly stop if I get an upset stomach again.
Thanks!February 13, 2012 at 9:51 pm #73457

I also had headache and vomiting during the first 2 days. After that, I remember my headache lasted for a couple more days.
For the headache, I am not sure if it was die-off or caffeine withdraw. You may take a hot bath as Raster always suggest to sweat out some of the toxins. It help me a lot to relieve the die-off.February 13, 2012 at 11:04 pm #73459
Thanks. Yep i am thinking it was due to the headache which is probably die off related! Much better today so hopefully it stays away for a while.
