Thank you everyone. There will not be anymore slip ups, it is not worth the torture my stomach is going through, today it hurts worse than the last 2 days.
I am 24 and gave up meat at 22, after eating it all my life. My whole family made fun of me. Then when I called crying cause I had eaten meat, they finally realized what it did to me, and got on my side about not eating it, and offered to help. That meant alot. I knew it was not going to be perfect or easy, and I was bound to slip up, but now that I did, I know I am not missing anything special, and by not eating meat I am doing something special.
The people at my school (very into alternative medicine and body cleansing) make a fermented beet juice drink that is supposed to work wonders... I've never tried it, but here's a link if you are interested: http://www.warren-wilson.edu/~wellness/recipes.shtml
Yogi teas make a peach detox tea.. It is pretty nasty, but works really well. I use it when I get sick (tummy, cold, cough, etc.). I also agree with the apple cider vinegar. I make detox tea with a spoon full of apple cider vinegar, a squirt of lemon juice, a dash of cayanne pepper, and some honey. Yeah, it sounds gross, but you can hold your nose, and it sure does knock about anything out. One to two cups a day for three days is what I do when I get super sick.
Also, a raw diet is good for cleansing. In my opinion, that's the only thing it is good for. Raw diets are used for people who are obese and are beginning an intensive body change (seen on celeb fit club, etc.), and I've also heard raw diets used by people starting rehab. If you eat raw for a few days to a week your body will really cleanse itself. But I personally don't recommend doing it for more than two weeks because it is a really intense diet on the body and mind.
