Water Fasting -Intense Back Pain
I was planning on doing a long water only fast, however by the 5th day I was having terrible back pain. I was so upset that I was going to quit, but I could not stand the pain – I was getting no sleep at night and could hardly function during the day. I know it was caused by toxins in the low intestines, but would one enema have cleared it up? I have had two bowel movements since I quit, but I still have alot of back pain when I lay down. Can you give me more information about the back pain – since you would not have a bowel movement until the end of the fast, would the pain have continued the whole time? I was having alot of pain in my shoulders and legs too, but I felt that that would end as the toxins were released, but I was afraid the toxins in the small intestines could only be released by bowel movements/enemas.
Yea using the enema can reduce back pain. Not sure why but it may be the there is a connection between the lymph of the lower colon and the nerves surrounding the spine. You should not be water fasting. Juice fast using 6 tablespoons of essential oils daily with a B complex and vitamin E. Once the pain is gone you can water fast.
