I've taken it three times so far (twice a day) and its awful ._. It causes the nausea for about 5 hours, then I feel ok, but that only leaves me with a few hour frame of time when I'm feeling good. I'm not sure what to do. I want so much for this stuff to work, but how long to I tolerate this until I say "ok, it isn't working and I feel terrible?" My mom says 2 weeks, but that sounds miserable O_o
Can you maybe call the doctor and either have a chat to him or his nurse on the phone about the nausea? They might have suggestions, or maybe a different medication that could be less likely to cause nausea?
Or maybe he could give you some anti-nausea pills to take before you choke down the gritty horrible stuff?

Hopefully the doctor has a suggestion. You could also take a Benadryl or Dramamine. They both work on nausea. They'll make you tired to begin with, but that side effect goes away after a while as your body gets used to it.

Say, you don't happen to have raw honey available to you? By "raw" I mean local unfiltered course strained honey not heated above 110 degrees (I think perhaps some members on here raise bees, and would know what I am talking about?). Here is an short article that would be worth your time to read. The benefits of raw honey It also tells how it helps with allergies, ulcers, bronchitis, and asthma among others.

The raw honey would help your liver cleanse at night having a 4-1/2 hour sugar instead of the regular 2 hour sugar that your body normally uses, therefore helping your liver cleanse 2x as long as it normally would helping to flush the medicines/toxins from your body and give a boost to help you sleep at night. Something like 1 tsp before you go to bed if you are fairly healthy and around 1Tablespoon if you are sick on meds etc.

Also it has to be raw, if you get anything that isn't it will act the same as regular sugar, and it just might be a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings without sacrificing your health. :)

My Grandpa has been raising bees since he was four, so we tend to get a lot of honey from him, but I do realize not everyone has it around for them... Anyhow just a thought that I had... You might also want to look into Teramin Clay (for people), Barbs Wellness Home Portal to Information and Products, she has been helpful with her Nutrimin clay to help several of my bovine regain their health, obviously I was dealing on the animal side of things but I do know she deals with helping people too.

Hmmm, a friend of mine brought this up one day. She's doing research on the Blood Type diet. And she mentioned that according to her blood type, she is supposed to have a sensitive digestive system and low stomach acidity which means that if her stomach gets upset a base, such as milk, will settle it down. Which she had been using milk for years to settle her stomach down.

I don't know if that helps you any but I guess it couldn't hurt to check to see if there is a certain diet that your body is supposed to be following, it also may explain other bodily reactions. It's a far stretch, I know, but I guess at this point it's worth a look.

Although, there is no scientific proof that it really works to benefit the body but, I don't know, it's an idea.

Those are all great suggestions, guys! I hadn't even thought of taking Benadryl. It does make me sort of 'blehhhh' when I take it, but if the side effects go away I can totally power through a week or two of that.

I'll have to research the raw honey. I've seen stands for it occasionally but only during certain parts of the year, so I'd have to figure out how to get a constant supply.

That's very interesting about the blood type! I think I'm an A but I guess I'll have to double check and try to find out more about that diet.

Also, my mom okayed me to try gluten free for a week, beginning next week. Yay!!!

I hope trying to go gluten free will help make you feel better!

About the honey, Grandpa usually sells it late June- Sept/Oct. Don't know the season for TX though.

That's when I'm used to seeing it, in the early fall. So do I just buy a bunch of jars and take a few tablespoons a day or something?
