It feels good in itself but that much better to have others around you whom agree and support you throughout. Of course , if and when anyone else decides this is right for them and wants to attempt something similar, I will be right there waiting for youuuuuu SING IT! Richard Marx - Right Here Waiting for You just change here to there and don't think of it as a love song..... dunno it just came to mind.
lol, Lean and Green! Don't start breaking into song and dance now! Well, hopefully I will be able to do some type of juicefeasting in a month or two (after we move)...though certainly not to the extent you're doing it! lol.

I'll refilm this at a later date btw, there is no chewing or swallowing of them them, the outer layer is sucked out then you spit them out. Posted a pic of what on looks like once the outer sticky resin like layer is sucked off.....
Wow, that is unique. And it's useful for a laxative, you say? Nice. I have some Senna leaves and some Cascara Sagrada powder that I use for my laxatives. It was the only herbal-type laxative I could find at the time...and plus, I got it cheap on eBay! lol. I just looked a second ago, and apparently, I can't find any Cassia Pods on eBay. So I'd imagine I'd have to pay a lot to buy them somewhere else online. So I'll just stick with what I have for now...besides, it may not work quickly as I'd like it to, but I find when I take it at night before bed, I have the urge to go after a few hours or so of waking up. I just try not to accidentally take too much. One site told me to start with 1/2 tsp Senna and 1/2 tsp Cascara Sagrada, then work my way up...but soon as I move on to a full 1 tsp of each, I usually find I get like a diarrhea. lol. So I just stick with the lowest dosage. And some sites claim not to use laxatives or enemas too often, or you'll develop a dependancy on them (and the bowels will not be able to work without them), so I try not to take laxative tea for any longer than 1 week at a time.
But anyway, I hope that's working really well for you. I might look into getting Cassia Pods later on, once I use up the stuff I have...which may take a while to use up, lol.
