Fasting For Kidney Damage
Hi guys. I’m starting a new juice fast today. I’m trying to heal my damaged kidneys from 23 years of Type 1 diabetes and ten years of drug abuse. My diabetes is pretty well controlled now, but for about 15 years it wasn’t. For about five of those I didn’t even own a blood glucose meter.
I started today off with a cup of tea as I didn’t want caffeine withdrawal headache. I forgot to mention that I’m trying to give smoking too.l I know smoking will hurt my kidneys. I have three left in my pack that I’ll smoke today, then I won’t buy any more for at least until my fast is finished. I know Tom says to fast until I get pain in my kidneys, so that’s what I’ll do. This has usually taken three days before.
I’m sticking to lower juices like tomato and green juice, as fruit causes a spike in blood sugar.
Different ailments have different reactions to fasting. Sometimes the kidneys may hurt and other times they do not.
The best rule is go slow by drinking about 3 litres of juice per and spacing out the glass to regular intervals. Always take a chromium supplement and get some parsley for juicing with the other veggies. If your kidneys start to ache use avocado to slow the fast down. Take Vitamin E 1200 IU daily, B complex and 4 tablespoons of hemp and flax oil daily. If you can fill in a progress report it keeps things clear.
