Doing 30 days of Juice Fasting. Starting June 23, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
I want to cure my lichen planus and steroid acne. I also tend to binge on sugar and refined carbs occasionally so I would like to break that habit.
Past Fasting Experience:
I have done 24 hour water fasts in the past. I've also done raw till supper for awhile.
Before starting the fast I was mostly raw with a cooked dinner. I tried to be as healthy as possible. The week before the fast I had actually slipped up out of frustration/depression that I wasn't getting better. So I was drinking a cup of coffee a day and not eating as healthy as I should. I've been a vegetarian for about two months now.
I took a range of vitamin supplements before the fast, but I'm not supplementing anything during the fast.
Present Medication or Drug Usage:
I'm taking 100mg of docycyline twice a day. I have two more weeks left of the prescription so I'm going to finish it. I've been on it for six weeks, though, with little improvement to my face.
State of Mind:
Optimistic. I feel happier than I have in awhile. I feel hopeful that this may actually heal me. I feel as though I've tried everything else so this HAS to work.
I am a stay at home mom with two young children. Though I don't feel like I have any limitations. That is actually a help because I can make juice whenever I need it and rest when I need to.
I posted this in another post before I saw how to make a progress report, but so far this hasn't been too difficult. The first day was rough but after that I have felt fine. I enjoy moments of pure happiness and the rest of the time I feel balanced and good. Is it normal not to have many symptoms of detoxification? My tongue has been coated and other than a feeling a little light headed here and there I haven't had any symptoms. Hunger pains are not even that bad and I have to deal with food for the three meals a day I make my family.
