  • Doing 7 days of Water Fasting. Starting January 16, 2012

  • Reasons for Fasting:
    Diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2011. Surgery - Late April and early May 2011. Chemotherapy June to October (6 treatments in all, 3 weeks apart). Radiation therapy early November to December (total 4.5 weeks, 5 days a week). Result of all treatment which I worked full time through, I felt like shit. Had a residual hacking cough in the morning.

  • Past Fasting Experience:
    Juice fasting for three days Mon - Wed two weeks in a row at a health farm in 2009.

  • Present Diet:
    Is good. Maybe too much alcohol at times.

  • Supplements:
    None really.

  • Relevant Medical History:
    See above

  • Present Medication or Drug Usage:

  • State of Mind:
    Good. Bad. Good. Mostly Good. Sometimes bad.

  • Limitations:
    Should have no alcohol.

  • Questions:
    Very tired throughout my seven day water fast. Should I take some form of vitamin supplement throughout the next one. Ended up with oral thrush after day 5 of 7 day water fast. Why? Did my body have a lot of toxins to get rid of? Will it be a bit easier on the body next time? As in I haven't been back on chemo or radiation therapy since then.
