Hello everyone-- I just had dental surgery and a bunch or dental procedures done over the past 10 days. During that time, I was mostly eating yogurt, simple soup, and downing gallons of water in an effort to help my body flush out all the toxins. I'm now about 5 days out from the last procedure and have developed a huge rash/small zits covering my entire upper chest, neck, and jawline.
I've been surfing for sites about ways to help the body detox from dental work. I'm sure that my body suffered a lot of trauma from the surgery itself, the numbing agents, 15 day course antibiotics, codeine, high dosage acetaminophen, metal fillings being drilled out. The pain is subsiding, and I actually feel pretty good energy wise, but my body is telling another story.
All the work and medicine have been a nightmare of toxicity to me, but I simply had to have all this work. I HATE taking antibiotics and will ALWAYS refuse them if I can, as well as ANY drugs, alcohol, and down to processed foods, dyes, preservatives etc...
Now that I'm recovering, I'm downing 16-32 oz of green juice a day, including cilantro and parsley. And probably preparing a beet juice for later today. I'm taking a 60 day vegan challenge starting a few days ago (but have been transitioning successfully over the last 2 months), and am also transitioning more fully to raw food.
Can anyone tell me some great links concerning medical work detox? I'm also looking for information about food recipes to aid healing, as well as insight about the rash. I'm pretty sure its from having been on codeine, but it seems to be all around my lymph node areas. I'm not interested in going to the doctor for more more pills or medicine about the rash as I'm pretty sure its just detox from all the work I had done.
Thanks for your insight!
