View Full Version : Juice fasting and emotions question
06-06-2009, 06:04 PM
Okey. I really feel this desire to fast, juice fast in particular, because with water fast I get migraines and then have to take advil(the pain become simply unbearable), and what kind of fasting is that.
Also with water fast on my second and third days I become very irritable and just want to be alone. Does that happen with juice fast too? I have five year old son, so I have no choice at this time to be by myself for a few days.Juice fast is much gentler, right?

yes juice is more gentle... but a fast is what it is. every fast is different and so you just have to do it to find out what level of detoxing you are going to do.
more green juices will do less detoxing... so be sure to have lots of greens in with your juices!

Thanks, Aleesha. I should get my Omega Juicer soon, so green juices will be easy. I always thought though, that greens speed up the detox. I know, you do a lot of fasts, are you able to do your everyday stuff while juice fasting?

I fasted for 262 days last year... yup I was able to do everything I normally do (and more some days). Of course some days... I had little to no energy... it is what it is :)
Greens are healing.
Fruits are cleansing.
So greens will give you more healing. BOTH are going to detox you to be honest... cause really... that's the point of fasting LOL

Thank you! I also noticed, that you released so much weight in such a short time. I wanted to ask, what happened to your skin - did it bounce back to shape or you had to do something about it?

i take MSM occassionally and between that and eating raw LIVE foods... my skin is normal for my size. no more saggy or wrinkled than anyone else who's had 3 babies and is 46 years old.
that's not true... i have virtually no wrinkles on my face ... so perhaps less than someone my age :)

Oh, that's nice.
So I tried to juice fast yesterday, and it was good, but then at night I started feeling, that the headache was comming, so I ate salad for dinner. So far today - just juices. I'll see how it goes. I might have to do that a few days to ease nicely into the fast.

Oh, yes. Forgot to say about emotional thing. So today my son had a huge tantrum and threw something into the mirror door and broke it. His dad(my ex, but we still live together) got so mad, that I told him, that if he won't calm down I will call the police. The funny thing is, that we didn't have this intense situation for a long time since I practise LAW of Attraction thing, but now when I fast- BOOM.
The funny thing is I was peaceful through the whole thing. I think part of this is due to juices and part to me focusing on positives(like when my ex told me - now you are calling me a bad guy, I told him, that noone is bad or at fault- things just are as they are and we attract stuff with our thinking).
The whole thing is kind of entertaining now, which would have been an awful day or week just a year ago.

instead of a salad... have a blended smoothie. it's easier on your body while you are transitioning into your fast.

Thank you for great tip, Aleesha.
Yesterday I felt fine, so it was full juice day. I love it how gentle juice fast is - just a very pleasant gentle tingling in my whole body tells me, that my cells are working on cleansing. And my mind is so peaceful. And no headaches! Love it.
