Vitamin C Liver Detox
Rachael J. Tapp
In August of 2017, I was feeling terrible with constant pain, hot flashes, fatigue, and generally feeling like my thyroid was not well. The doctor determined there was nothing wrong with my thyroid. When I stated I still felt “off” he offered to prescribe birth control. I was told that delayed menstruation while breastfeeding was abnormal, and that I needed more progesterone. I declined.
A Zyto Compass Scan indicated needs for thyroid and liver support. I had already been reading about an overtaxed liver causing imbalance in bile and thyroid function, so I decided to detox my liver with high doses of vitamin C. Perhaps after cleaning out the liver, the liver would be able to help restore the rest of my systems.
The following was an experiment without medical supervision. I paid attention to how my body felt, and adjusted doses as I felt I could handle it, at my own risk. There are plenty of details my friends probably never wanted to know about me, but if you detox, you must be ready for these side effects.
If you have medical conditions, are pregnant, ect., do not attempt any sort of hard detox – it may do more harm than good. Consult your health care professional.
September 1: Administered 6,000 mg Lypospheric Vitamin C in the evening, after which I experienced stomach aches and more frequent hot flashes.
Spetember 2: Administered 9,000mg of the same, spread over three doses throughout the day. Intense irritability. Mild stomach aches. Soreness below right ribs directly after ingesting a dose of vit C. Overall muscle soreness and fatigue considerably decreased. Continuous, rancid gas. Stools darker than usual and smelled horrendous. Bowel movements still regular. Abdominal pain and tension subsided. Insomnia that night.
September 3: For the rest of the detox, administered 6,000 to 9,000 mg Lypospheric Vitamin C over three doses daily.
Finally slept at 5:00 am in the morning. Woke at 8:00 am. Felt like I was six years old, again. Sweats, off and on. Improved energy. Decreased cravings – no more need to continuously eat to get through the day. Better moods. The sugar from half a brownie and a sip of liquor felt overwhelming.
September 4: Mild diarrhea. Sweats subsided. No desire for seconds at meals. Birthday cake and ice cream had to be eaten slowly, and could not finish them. Return to regular sleep patterns.
September 5: Mild diarrhea. Energy sustained. Pain absent. Cravings relieved.
September 6&7: Continued improvements and decreased side effects.
March 4, 2018: Improvement maintained. ZytoCompass Scan showed no liver or thyroid stress.
June 15, 2018: That constant abdominal pain is still absent, and the fatigue is lessening as I employ other thyroid-supporting practices.
