It's been some time since I last posted here. Just need to ask a quick question regarding urine fasting.
Q1 : How do you start doing it???
I need to reduce my body weight safely and quickly, due to the pain of sore feet. I start experiencing pain on the soles of my feet after walking for 1-2 hours. It's affecting my work and family life, so I have to do this. Been having this problem for a few years now but it has got worse this year.
I have never fasted before, would a semi-urine fast, combined with juicing work well?
urine will help prevent you from getting too hungry
that's the beauty of the UT
if you wish to supplement it with juices that is fine. Personally I have just done a pure UT fast before but bear in mind that you should make sure you do it while you have some time off work as your body will detoxify itself so you don't want to do anything too demanding or stressful to your body while you are doing this. Also make sure you get plenty of sleep. Doing a UT fast can leave you full of energy and sleeping may be difficult, sometimes mild sedatives are required to help you sleep. Remember the majority of all healing is done during the hours that you sleep.
Exercise is also important, go for 20-30 minute walks is a great way to get your lymphatic system moving and this helps speed up the process of elimination.
i haven't been doing ut as long as most on this forum, but i have found that i get different results doing ut along with my regular eating habits, ut with limited food intake, and ut fasts with only urine and water. i think they all have their place and it depends on your goals and your circumstances which is the most appropriate at the time.
one thing i would mention is that when i only take urine and water (i haven't gone more than two days yet, but plan to when i have the opportunity), some profoundly powerful emotional stuff comes to the surface whether i want it to or not. just something to be prepared for. :)
Urine fasting is a safe way to loose weight, but when you return to eat again, is very important to watch what you eat. You have to eat little by little, and don't go back to your normal eating habit.
One good way to do it is to eat raw fresh vegetables and fruits the same number of day that you fasted.
And in order to diminish the detox simptoms it's important that you eat also raw fresh fruits and vegetables some days before starting.
I think it's very important to prepare also mentally for the fast.
I did a 6 day urine fast 2 summers ago. http://curezone.com/blogs/f.asp?f=851 . Lost 11 pounds during that time. You have to get prepared for the fast. Start detoxifying before the fast by eating raw foods (veggies, fruits, nuts etc...) for a few days before starting the fast. It will make it easier and you will recycle more nutrients.... For more severe problems you can fast up to a month according to Armstrong. Enemas and massages once a day is recommended. Save night's urine for that purpose and drink everything you pass during the day. For a real fast only pure water and urine but nothing wrong with drinking natural juices with urine drinking. Lots of sugar though in the fruit juices. Could be complemented with veggie juice.
