We are all fasting.  Please post your fasts here.  The fasting club is a place to share and care with other fasters.  I am starting my big fast of the year.  So this will also keep me honest.  Even the fasting gurus can have a hard time getting started. Tags:...

  • Spirulina (1)
    • Hayes: Tom, Thanks for the info on spirulina! I first heard of spirulina when it was mentioned in some of your other fasting articles, but I didn’t think much about it. One day, though, I decided to try it to add extra nutrients to my diet. Boy was I surprised when it gave me so much more...
  • Ask a Question (75)
    • fp: Thanks Tom. So how many days safely would you recommend on spirulina?
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Fp, It is better to take the spirulina several times per day rather than once. It gives me an energy boost and it does not last for more than an hour, but I was fasting sole on spirulina. Considering the nutrient content I am not surprised if the person who live on it for 15 year...
    • fp: ……and how many days can one safely fast on spirulina and water? I read elsewhere that someone actually lived on spirulina for 15 years- though I am not sure how much spirulina per day he consumed. Thank you again.
    • fp: One related question- Did you take five spoons of spirulina at one go or did you divide it into two or three meals/times a day? I wonder if it would make a difference? Thank you again!

    • Tom Coghill: DANYELLE, You do not have normal bowel movements during fasting. Nothing in nothing out. So that is normal. You will have and rear end explosion on breaking the fast. That is also normal. On fasts over 5 days I use and enema.

  • Need A Fasting Buddy? Post Here (237)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Sylvie, The enema is the best for eliminating hunger pains. You will sleep deeper each night, as you are now in a sleep deficit. Sometime during fasting you sleep long hours in a deep sleep and at other times cannot get a good night sleep.
    • Sylvie: Hi, I am on my fourth night of fasting, and I feel most of the detox symptoms are starting to subside, but my major problem is that I just can’t sleep! I have trouble sleeping when I am hungry, and th past two nights I haven’t been able to fall asleep until 5am, only to wake...
  • Fasting Cured: Hypertension, Diabetes, Cholesterol, Arrhythmias and Arthritis. (2)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Jeff Gates, We have had astounding results with diabetics. We only have one long term result that was the first patient. He works at the hospital so we have accurate info. Not sure if he was type one or two but was on medication for 15 years and has been off any medication for 6...
    • Jeff Gates: Hi Tom, I’ve written before (earlier regarding cancer)and continue to find therapeutic fasting a fascinating intervention as I’m involved with diabetic patients. With your extensive experience in therapeutic fasting, do you have an idea as to the % of patients with type 2...
  • Cannabis, Smoking Pot, Weed, Research (37)
    • ReddO: Well first I would like to say thank you for the info. I think that just like alcohol, pot can effect different people in different ways. Men especially. I have recently quit smoking pot along with my boyfriend and have noticed that it has affected him more than it has me. I am not a...

    • rachel: sorry for the lazy slang term, that just a short abrev. of itermittent fasting, probably should have been IFing instead. my favorite way to fast is everyother day, as Im focusing really hard on my strength training. for now im melting since once the liver glycogen is depleted and you work...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Rachel, The program you described would be more effective during a juice fast. Not sure what “ITing” is.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Rhet, I do not know if their are any herbs that would inhibit angiogenesis as it is a natural process. There is a drug called bct-100 from hong kong that is prolonging the life of cancer patients, mostly liver cancer, and they could be taken during a fast as they are not like...
  • Discover Juice Fasting (57)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Rene I would recommend 30 to 40 day of juice fasting with essential oils and vitamin E for polycystic ovary syndrome. Follow it with a non dairy diet. I am thinking that is you are still “bunged up after a colonic” and are a vegetarian with lots of fiber in the diet,...

Quote From the Books

Ok, I now know just how messed up I am. The chapters on the emotions and eating hit home. I am planning a fast but, I know that I need to rebuild and cleanse my mind of all the toxic thinking and emotions that make me want to hide in the pleasures of food. I feel alive for the first time in many years. Keep on going, Tom you have helped me more than my words can express. — Suzie Bilinere
