Backaches During Water Fasting
This my second water fast, I’m up to a week now and it’s going very well, except for this backache when I lay down to sleep.
My first fast last year was 8 days long and I had to stop because of work, and of vomiting bile. What kept me from sleeping that time was the pain in the gums of my mouth.
This time I would like to go 2 weeks, but these backaches are starting to get to me. I took a bath to help, it was so good that I was falling asleep, it scared me. I’ve put hot water bottles and it somewhat helped also, didnT try cold yet though…
For now I think I will try to lay down/sleep for 2 hours, then get up when the pain is to much and there are no position I can maintain, than go back to bed after an hour or two. What I don’t understand is that most of the pain goes away when I am sitting or standing up??? Would a salt flush be a solution to this?
Any comments and suggestions are more than welcome!

Backaches are common during water fasting and rare during juice fasting. One reason could be accelerated deep tissue cleaning and a toxic colon. I started fasting for a back injury and it got worse. The day I broke my fast the pain disappeared. It could be toxin from the colon passing into the lymph and blood supply near the spine. (theory)
