lemonade diet .. will it help in detox?

I was wondering if doing that lemonade detox will help speed up the process of w/d?

I feel like I live in the bath tub with epson salts but its not happening fast enough lol, as all of you know.

Any feedback would be great!

Are you taking Valerian root?  It's calming and it's an herb.  If you have RLS,get some Hyland's restful Legs at any store like Walgreens.  No caffeine for awhile and stop the L-tyrosine because that can make you "jiggy".  Keep pushing fluids especially gatorade.

Take a lot of hot baths/showers...they help!

Please Please share any incite into pain relief. I wear a neck brace now and believe me nohelp!! I have tried the lemonaid thing, and the only benefit that I can see is that it makes you sweat like no bodys business! It has cayenne pepper in it. Since you have to drink so much of this nasty stuff, it has to help.

I am taking herbel supplements, L-tyrosine, b6, vitamen c, and a multivitamen.

I understand and can empathize with you; I had a serious spinal injury and 4 surgeries. I was on oxys and percs for 7 years. I finally stopped as the drugs weren't helping any more and I had to take more.  You are at the halfway point and you should start feeling better in a couple of days. Do you still have pain from your injury? If so there are alternative methods of pain relief I can share with you that have helped me quite a bit. If you would like to know just post back or message me. I have been where you are now and I want you to know that there is other ways to deal with pain. I am praying for you so keep up the good fight. God Bless---Rick

No,I don't think it's going to speed up the process any more than drinking lemon water by the gallon. Fluids are very important. We tend to get very dehydrated during a detox. So,
keep doing that...

I'm sorry for your troubles but you ARE making a clean break and that's a positive!  Who/what do you have for support?  You might seek out some help. We just can't do this alone,you know?

I was on them for more than 2 years. Started with a broken neck, wrist and hand from a car wreck .. just like everyone else, it later started to not take the pain away so I took more, then the downward spiral of, having to find them. This has taken my life so far past the dumps it is unbelievable! It didnt help that my husband was hooked worse than I was. I ended up leaving him which was devastating and in turn caused me to use even more. I was clean for over 2 months, then low and behold he came back. I regressed to say the least. I have since then moved to another state and know within myself I can't be with him because of this. Its been so very hard, losing my husband and now dealing with this. Sometimes it feels never ending and very very lonely.

You are just about at the turning point, why would you do the lemonade thing---it sounds horrible. I am guessing drinking 8 glasses of that will make you sicker than any detox would.

Hang in there. It is almost over.

I am on day 2  .. I was taking about 4-5-6 30 mg roxys and on top of that perc 10s.

The lemonade diet cleanses your system out. You have to drink 8-12 8 oz glasses a day. Its lemon juice, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper ... (nasty!!!) People skip the maple syrup to lose weight, or use a very small aount of it.

THank you so much for your response
