In the middle of my last attempt at an alkaline juice feast per the pH Miracle plan, I had a healing crisis/stomach flu. Before the virus hit, I had reduced my 24 hour insulin from 10 units to 3 units and hadn't taken any fast acting insulin in a few days. Once I got sick, I went into ketoacidosis and had to ingest sugar (in the form of 7up) and take insulin to get out of that cycle - or else end up in the hospital where they give you the sugar and insulin through an IV. It worked and I was able to rehydrate and stop the constant vomiting. Then as I recovered, vegetables sounded horrid to me and I ate grains in the form of oatmeal, potatoes, rice, and bread.
I knew I was well when vegetables started sounding like a pleasant thing to eat again. :-)
So I am back drinking my green drinks and juices and plan to reduce my 24 hour insulin (I am back up to 10 units) as needed. I have two weeks to juice feast and then we are off on spring break, where I plan to eat mostly alkaline veggies.
