    • marieat: I have 125 to 135 pounds to lose. I had started a fast and was doing well, but then I got sick. So I’m starting again today for 30 or more days.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Claire Most oil dressing are very toxic. Unless it is fresh and refigerated in dark bottles it is toxic. I would also feel very neausea after eating any processed oil. Even vigin olive oil is a lie and a mix of other oils. I would up the juice amount from the juicer for energy....

    • Tomika: I woke up really thirsty today…and im very very tired. and i had im trying to ignore these hunger pangs…
    • Tom Coghill: Notice.. serious internet problems and slow connection at the present. If i missed something I should respond post it.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Nikki, This is the problem of water fasting for the first fast off a toxic diet. It is a trip to hell. With juice fasting you can get passed it in 3 days then go two water without any suffering. Do not get down on yourself feel good about what you have done.
    • Brenda: Nikki, I am proud of you! You have tried very sonsistently & had to do what you felt best. Even after all that you still see the benefits and are planning the juicing & whole foods (good for you!) You have been a great blessing to me as well Nikki. You have put a name & a...

    • Tom Coghill: Hi Brenda, Generally speaking is all I can do. So do not take offense as there was no insult intended. Being specific takes a lot of time and I do not have that luxury. I also do not have the background data and medical records. Considering your negative experiences, a time of juice...
    • Brenda: Tom I appreciate your site & your comments but I am somewhat offended and take issue with the highly generalized statement you made: “For people with lots of excess fat, 40 to 60 days of water fasting is quite easy.” I have been waiting for this “easy” time...
    • marieat: How amazing. Reading the posts have been so inspiring. I have 125 to 135 pounds to lose. I had started a fast and was doing well, but then I got sick. So I’m starting again. I would love an e-mail buddy (one who has over 100 pounds to lose) to chat daily with and to show mutual...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Brenda Considering the amazing healing you are experiencing I would continue on the fast. You have lots of reserves in the fat. A short period on some juice would boost your nutrition. For people with lots of excess fat, 40 to 60 days of water fasting is quite easy. Tom
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Niikki You are experiencing the symptoms of rapid detoxification and for that reason I recommend juice for first time faster. Yes water fasting gets you over the hunger stage more rapidly. You could use the enema as that dramatically reduces hunger on a juice of water fast.
    • Brenda: My son just called and irritated me so badly I practically hung up on him. Ended with “I am not in the state of mind for this so I am hanging up now. Love you… “click” I told him about being so sick the last couple (now 3 days) and that I just want to end this well...
    • Samm: Dear Tom, Thank you for website, may God bless you. I’d like to share my post; last month I embarked on a 30 day fast, I did about 18 of it. I lost about 20 lbs. I started out with a smoothie like drink (spirulina and chlorella) 32 ounces and endless glasses of water for 4 days (I...
    • Brenda: Water Fast Day 22: To Nikki – I hope you made it past your crisis and I didn’t make it any worse… :( I did make it past mine. I couldn’t go to sleep again and was feeling rough but passed out at 7 a.m. finally and slept for 7 hours. I now feel right with the world...
    • Brenda: Nikki, I am praying for you… I understand exactly what you are going through. I have bouts of those feelings as well… they are very hard. I am OK, but tonight was really tough. I got through it but I am wondering if attempting a 60 day water fast was setting myself up. I am on...

  • Intestinal Bacteria Replacement After Fasting (24)
    • BBdfate: okay ima keep trying thanks alot for the response.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi BBdfate, Taking a multi B during a juice fast is excellent. Usually fasting causes various pains throughout the body. 1, during catabolism breaking down fat or cellular tissue releases some toxic stuff into the blood that irritates the muscles. There an also be a deeper healing...
    • Tom Coghill: BBdfate, Lots of water is not important as without digestion the body does not need much water unless you are sweating. Yes use the enema once per day for the first 3 day then every 2 or third day after that. Spring or distilled water is good.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi BBdfate, My internet is cutting out so here is the 4 th time to answer your post. The tongue changes color throughout the fast and can be coated after 60 days of juice fasting.
    • BBdfate: ive never actually been diagnosed with a b12 deficiency but was just thinking maybe that is the cause. have you seen people with kidney problems have pain in the back of the neck, im really worried
    • BBdfate: Tom, im really worried i been having pain in my neck. Maybe it is from B12 deficiency. does weak kidney cause neck pain from your experiences?
    • BBdfate: o ok i c. as soon as you told me the things to use i went to the supermarket this morning i bought some eggs, bananas, garlic, ginger, celery, cucumber. it is a strong drink i must add. hard tod rink. very hard to drink. the eggs and bannas could be of great use if i am dealing with b...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi BBdfate, Tongue color changes through the fast. Best is to fast until you are feeling amazing. After 50 days of juice fasting the tongue can still be coated.
    • BBdfate: and also should i use my tongue as a measurement during the fast like looking for it to return to red or something or just go based on how i feel
    • BBdfate: thank you Tom for the reply i greatly appreciate it. so i should drink lots of water throughout the day? i prefer spring water is that okay?, and is this proper procedure use an enema once a day for the first few days. juice celery, cucumber, garlic and when i get kidney pains blend...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi BBdfate You need a long juice fast for sure. But, if your kidneys start to hurt you should add 2 egg blended into the juice and even some banana blended. Adding, ginger and garlic in the juice to fight off the Candida. Clove tea is good. Celery and cucumber as good as they supply...

    • Samm: Hi Tom, I just saw the the stomach ulcers article.Aahh, that’s why the milk and bananas worked for me, lucky guess huh. However, I’m lactose intolerant, so after a while I got tired of living in the bathroom and swithed to rice milk and aloe vera. Your article is silent on aloe...

    • Tom Coghill: Hi TheRisingStar456 Indeed a complex problem. The unnatural hunger may be triggered by low blood sugar. Did you get a blood sugar test. Do you crave sugars first or the feeling of your stomach being full. Are your hormone levels normal… especially thyroid? On a water fast do...
    • TheRisingStar456: Tom, I can’t thank you enough for the offer to help… the problem is purely TERRORIFYING, and it’s gotten worse, exponentially. I’ve sought out help from everyone – from conventional (Western) medicine to some of the top alternative health specialists. In...
