I completed my 2nd Liver Flush last sat and back pain started around thur but I got my periods on that day too. The first flush was better - this was not so due to my constipation issues.
However I never get back pain with periods. Recently diagnosed with PCOS - due to that less MC but this time first 2 days heavy and many clots (I never ever see clots) and diet/lifestyle hasn't changed.
No urinary symptoms. Some greenish stools and some abdomen burning (which is often and why I started cleansing among other things)
Have any women here noticed heavier periods with clots and back pain during their periods while liver cleansing?
I am trying to figure out if this is some uterine fibroid causing it or is it the liver cleanse. Of course fibroids are due to increased estrogen due to which ovulation does not occur and I do know liver plays an integral part in that.
Just wondering if others have any similar experiences or input.
You're right about the liver playing an integral part with estrogen and ovulation. Keeping that in mind, here's something you might want to know:
The innervation for your female reproductive organs are in your lower back. Irritation or pain in the organs often results in lower back pain. I've seen this a lot in female clients.
Also, innervation for your liver is midback. And, of course, the entire spine is interrelated. When I began flushing out gallstones, the structure of my spine changed immensely, and I had to see a chiropractor for relief. Since then, I make it a habit to get an adjustment after each flush.
If you think about the way your body is put together... think about the space those Gallstones were occupying, and the pressure that put on the liver and surrounding organs and tissues. Then, think about the pressure that may have put on the spine, etc, etc. The body is a whole, and when doing these liver flushes, it has to be viewed that way... or the results and changes can seem pretty baffling.
Personally, I did experience more clotting, and after the first 10 flushes or so, my lower back started going out. It didn't just hurt... it went out, and I couldn't sit or stand on my own accord. What I discovered was that after years of having those gallstones in there, affecting the functioning of my liver and hormone production... my reproductive system had been greatly affected by it. When I released the stones, the reproductive system had to make some changes, too. I was worried for awhile, but I kept flushing in good faith, and I can say that now... I have the most painless periods I've ever had (and the mood swings are greatly improved, as well.)
My point is... when you make a change in your body like this, it is going to take some time for everything else to readjust. The body is a self-healer, and healing takes time. There's nothing wrong with getting some extra help-- like a chiropractor, massage therapist, or whatever. You definitely could talk to your doctor, but unfortunately... most doctors don't believe the Liver Flush works, and don't view the body as a whole. You could end up with more problems going that route (speaking from experience.)
Mainly, you just have to be patient and trust the process. This liver flush is powerful... it will make changes in the body, but it will do it the way nature intended it... not the way modern medicine does it. It may sound strange... but I'd have to say that you back pain and clotting are a GOOD SIGN... a very good sign that you really needed the liver flush. Keep flushing!
I noticed that my pain in my lower back has been excruciating after doing a liver flush.
It wasn't right away. I had my period & had darker than usual blood coming out. Then, I was trying a liver remedy called Liver Life by Bio Ray - just a few drops & BAM... can't walk now due to bad lower back pain, pain in shoulder, neck, migraines, swollen lymph glands...
It's been about 10 days since I did the flush.
It this due to a healing reaction?
Please help!!! I don't know what to do right now I'm in so much pain.
I'd like to continue to self treat & avoid any doctor... It's just that I've been in bed for several days & can't do anything... I need to be able to function.
I had back pain & swollen glands prior - it's just that now everything is worse.
Sounds like detoxing to me, thats just my opinion. Stay positive, push through it! Your body will be thankful you did.See how much you need this stuff? Look into all other therapies here on CZ, if you havent already.Are you drinking enough water?having enough Bm's? Get some sunlight,breathe fresh air, try to sweat a little. I wouldnt go to a doctor unless you thought you need immediate care. Yes I know,periods can be horrible. Ive even passed out from the pain before, theyve been much better now that im healing my insides. And I try do whatever I hate doing when they come(ie:exercise!!or at least move around).I also have fibromyalgia (ten years now). You can do this! be strong~eme
