First Time Water Fasting, Age 63, Suspect Cancer
I should say this is my first really serious attempt to water fast. I tried before and didn’t make it to 3 days. This time I am now on day 7 and aiming for 10 days water fast and then switch to juicing for 20 to 30 more days (have not decided yet).
I feel pretty good today as far as not being weak or foggy brained as in the past days sometimes I have felt weak and befuddled and achey.
I am doing this to try to get right with God, and as a way to get my health back. I have no confidence whatsoever in allopathic doctors and have not been to one in 30 years, although I do not really feel well. I just try one supplement after another and try to eat right (ie raw milk and pastured eggs and as much non processed “real” food as I can.)
If I had cancer I would not want to know and if I did know I would not let the doctors near me with their “treatments.”
My digestive system is not working right and I figure this fast will fix it. My mother died a horrible death of colon cancer, and you could not pay me enough money to go to a doctor. I didn’t think much of allopaths before my mother got sick, and when I saw what the doctors did to her that clinched it. They pretty much sent my father to an early grave as well with their “treatments” for rheumatoid arthritis (that destroyed his immune system and a common cold took him down to the grave).
I am obese (250 pounds at 5’2″) and my health is going straight downhill. No energy at all, and always hungry.
I have been drinking Essiac tea with dandelion root powder mixed in along with IP6, dandelion root, and Citrimax (gardinia plant). I don’t know if my body is absorbing any of that. I have been taking my supplements also of B complex, C and some others.
Today, day 7, I am starting to dream of mashed potatoes and gravy and roast beef and buttered corn and tossed salad.
But it will be many long days before I can eat regular food again and hopefully by the time I get to the end of my fasting journey the food won’t have its stronghold on me anymore.
I am looking for a new lease on life. For those of you who are Christians, if you want to pray for me to hang in there, that would be great.
This is a great site. I did not know about catabolism. Seems like everybody who is feeling sick and has conditions should be fasting. If people can be pulled from death’s door after undergoing the chemo and radiation and surgery, just imagine what people can do who have not gone that route.
