I will not make a presentation here since I just did it in the 'who are you?' forum. Shortly I will just say that I'm a women from Dk which is healing my breast cancer naturally, and now I decided to go on 40 days juice fast which I might prolong to 60 days depending on how I feel. I am on the 10 day now, and I feel great!! Every week I'm fasting only with water and teas for 2 days, and today I'm finishing my second day with water. I added a bit of honey to my tea today to get a bit more energy. I'm alternating with water both to increase the detox and to save some money.. its not cheap to juice 3-4 liters organic juice every day.
I thought it would help me to join this monthly thread with fellow fasters :)
Hey welcome. You are doing great.
You can consider to juice the wild edible, they are more pack in nutrient.
The other option is to start sprouting and you juice it. Some on this board do that.
I second you with water fasting. One of thing with water fasting, is that if you did a lot of medication or took toxic drug such chemo, it could cause problem on your kidney. Your best option is juicing. If you are doing ok with water fasting, you should aim for 7 days. So much bad stuff get release on the seven day. I can speak for myself on that one. Research to make sure you are ok with water fasting. I was doing raw food, so even thought i tend to have low blood pressure, i knew i would be fine. I did three water fast so far and i only witness great miracle in my body.
Don't forget to make time to laugh, it is important to restore balance and to hold on good thought. Someone had breast cancer and it went away just by taking time to laugh and watch funny movie (from the secret).
All the best during your fast!
Thank you Raw angel mom :)
I'm juicing sprouts, both the ones in jars and sunflower/pea greens. But not so much, I still need to get into a good rhythm, so that I have all the time. I also drink 2-3 ounces fresh wheatgrass every day. I didn't do any conventional treatment, and I never take medicine, so I don't have these toxins in my body.
For the moment I can't take 7 days out of the calendar for water fast, but I would like to do it, when it fits. I don't know so much about edible wilds, so I would have to study that a bit... can you juice nettles?
I'm very focused on emotional healing, and keeping good states :)
Bagalamukhi--wishing you every success with the natural fight. Am a 15 year survivor myself. Cannot go back and redo but wish I had found the raw path and had the confidence a little sooner than I did.
Doing well with the juices--didn't bring enough today so I went down to the organic juice bar at the hfs and got two Emerald Bliss' with extra ginger. Overall being more satisfied with the green drinks and feeling more energized with the chlorella. Will start adding spirulina with tonight's juicing. Not exactly sure how the powder will blend so was hesitant. Anyone have some feedback--would be most welcome.
Dual prong to this juice feast--feeling better and having less of me. Every day it is better and better.
Sadly, i broke my water fast yesterday for personal reason but i will take advantage of all the fresh produce that come in seasons and juice.
All the best in your fasting.
So I just finished my 3 days water fast ( incl green tea and a spoonful honey :) ) , and now I'm preparing for making juice again. It was much easier than expected, maybe because of the tea. Yesterday I went to my yoga class, and despite some dizziness, my energy was fine. What I really enjoyed was not having to shop and make juice. My plan is to do this 3 days weekly, but lets see.
Lady green.. I'm adding a big spoonful of mixed chlorella and spirulina to one of my juices. I mix it well with spoon, but I think a shaker would be better. Then I hold my breath and drink without tasting.. the chlorella taste so bad for me.
I was aslo wondering about adding these things, I have suspicion that they awaken the hunger because of fibers.. I think I will open a thread about it :)
Bagalamukhi, I bought both of these in powder form and have been using up the chlorella tabs before I begin using. Yesterday I had a cleansing crisis of sorts--have been doing lots of greens in my juices but I upped it and kept the same amt. of chlorella and whammo--really got my system cleared out. Dizzy and sick to my stomach. Today is MUCH better but unsure if I will add so much greens to today's juices.
I also responded to your general question on this as I went to it first.
Today was a great day, although I didn't manage at all to drink enough juice, which would have been good after the 3 days water fast. I went to see my brother and my cute little 2 month nephew. I thought I would stay few hours but spend the rest of the day there, so didn't bring enough juice with me. I made my last juice mix, with all the things I could find in his fridge :)
Today I had:
600 ml green juice, made of a cabbage ( which I don't know the english name of.. but its shaped like a cone and mild tasting.. anyone?), cucumber, 1 handful sunflower/pea sprouts, 1 apple, a bit celery, wheatgrass, and asparagus.
450 ml carrot, beat
350 ml 1 carrot, 1 red peber, 1 mini romaine, 1 pear, a chunk of pineapple, few grapes.
Hey everyone, great jobs on your fasts! I'm excited to be joining you all starting today!
Here are my goals:
I don't have a certain amount of days in mind, I'm going to go until my body tells me other wise.
After I come off the fast I'm going to do the 30 day raw challenge. While fasting I'm going to finish up Alissa's book.
I echo back the foundation goals of the thread in that:
I'm here to fast. I'm not here to eat. I will fast until I choose to stop but I will NOT stop my fast on a bad day, at night or today. I can choose to break my fast tomorrow in the morning but not today.
I'm here to gain health.
I'm here to gift my body the time and energy to bring my body to a state of health.
I'm here to release - whatever needs to be released. Physical, emotional, conscious or unconscious out-moded thing...I'm here to release them all
I'm here to bring a greater depth to my spirituality.
I'm here to support myself and anyone here who wants support.
I am here to continure to be mindful - focusing on this moment and not anticipating the next one.
I am here to share my expereince and gain knowledge from what other share.
I'm here to feel whole. I'm here to give my beautiful, cherished body a break from digesting food!!!
I'm new to this site, this is my second juice fast. The last one I did, probably three months ago, lasted 4 days.
Today is the first day of my second juice fast. I'm going to try and do only water/tea today. I am allowing myself raw fruits and veggies, as well as juicing.
Wanted to pop in and say hello and read of everyone's experiences.
Hi all. Had to go on business travel and stayed juicing until the second day and went raw anyway. Vacation at the end of this week so my airm is to stay juicing until then. Feeling absollutely fantastic and glowing.
hope all are haring in there and doing the same.
Tomorrow Day 1
I start my water fast tomorrow. I have done a 7 day water fast in the past my hope is to do 21 days I will take it one day at a time. Thanks for being here everyone! -C
Have been feeling really energized on the juicing. Have created a couple new blends to shake it up and spice it up with cayenne. Nice.
Will be sad to end on Saturday but will be shifting to all raw and TONS of salads while on vacation. Can hardly wait for some of the Ohio produce when I get there. Wowzers--look out tastebuds.
Haven't been on the forum in a long time, but I am about to start a fast and it's so much easier with support. I'll be starting tomorrow and will take it one day at a time.
