Although I said sluggish, I would say that the bowels are definitely improved after the MC! It is incredible! When I go... I don't even have to wipe. It comes out like clay. And it feels like my body is working correctly! It's a great feeling.
However, after the fasting, there is usually a change in my body. It has to become used to getting no solids, to digesting solids again. And that first bowel movement after the fast, sometimes takes a day or two. There could be numerous answers to why:
1. My dehydration is down.
2. Not coming off the fast correctly.
3. Body's adaptation to laxative tea.
4. Not eating enough fiber after the fast.
It's the laxative tea I was responding to. It seems like it has less of an effect, the more I use it throughout the fast. The fear is that my body is becoming used to it. I'm not sure how much of an effect this may be having, and would like to hear other peoples input.
