I have determined that I have a nasty microbe built up in me. Not sure if it is a "regular" type of general infection or a bad balance of gut microbes. What I'd like to do is a very basic home cleansing. Just try to flush as much of the whatever out as possible. Then I'll throw a bunch of probiotics at it. I do not want herbal preparations, detox formulas, specific detox diets or the like. I am on much needed meds so I don't think something like activated charcoal or clay would be a good idea. It would likely flush out the meds too. First, I'm going to do a basic colonoscopy prep. Not sure which of those lovely drinks to buy from the pharmacy. There are several. Maybe one with magnesium. I can't remember what the names are. I am thinking of a short fast of a couple days maybe with only liquids. I am wondering about vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, salt ... That kind of very simple thing to try to both flush out some stuff and also possibly have an antimicrobial effect. I'm not sure whether to go acid or alkaline or to alternate between the two. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
