Day 5, 6 and 7 12 y
Completed 1 week and broke the fast.
Hiya Folks. Sorry for the delay and combining these 3 days into one, but I just had to get AWAY from the computer entirely. As previously suggested I did break my fast at 7 days due to an upcoming vacation conflict. All went really well and I feel I achieved a lot of cleansing and healing just with 7 days. Even though I didn’t complete the initial goal, I feel it was worth it.
My fast went really smoothly. I feel I could have easily made it 14 days. Education (knowing why you’re doing it and understanding what/how/your body is reacting physiologically) is key. That, and staying busy.

Day 4 12 y
Good news and Bad News
Today I woke up feeling tired and my lower back hurt. Kidney detoxing? I’m not sure. It seemed more muscle related from my Gym workout on Tuesday. However, I took 10 capsules of BF&C, and by mid morning I was feeling quite better.
What a beautiful day it was here NH. It was nearly 50 degrees and sunny. I took a long break from my computer work, made some Red Raspberry tea, and sat on my front porch and soaked up nearly 30 minutes of solars! I love letting the rays into my eyes. I’m hoping it will burn the floaters out!
After breaking, I went back to work until Noon. At Noon, I had m ... read more
Day 3 12 y
Away from home
Mid week is my usual travel day to the office so I had to bring my fasting tools on the road. I did my usual morning herbal prep consisting of tea, olive leaf, and lobelia/mullein tincture (1 dropper full in tea). I then made my half pint of OJ topped off with distilled water and put it in a plastic to-go jug. I also brought some Dewormer and BF&C with me to take later.
I still had no hunger pains most of the day and work went relatively smoothly. At Noon I drank my portable OJ lunch drink and popped a few BF&C capsules for a pain preventative. I also took a swig of the Dewormer (I thin ... read more
Day 2 12 y
Day 2 consisted of a carbon copy of Day 1, except that by Noon I had a splitting headache. I can only assume this was either a detoxing event, or just a tension headache from working on the computer too much (I have to find a different profession!!). Other than that I felt great. I didn’t have high energy but I didn’t have any weakness or fatigue. Oh, and my appetite (aka ”gnawing hunger pains”) were gone today.
After about 3 hours my headache was still there and increasing in intensity so I decided to start treating it with herbs. I usually take 2 Tablespoons of the Barefoot Herbalist’ ... read more
Day 1 12 y
Day 1 complete and feeling fine!
Well, my 1st fasting day is complete.
It was actually a bit harder than I thought because I ate pretty heavily over the weekend so my stomach was gnawing by morning from the residual HCL. This is explained in Dr. Hay’s book. That was a mistake on my part. I should have eaten fruitarian and fresh salads only prior to the big day. Oh well.
For some reason I was treating the upcoming fast like I was on Death Row and had to eat my last favorite meal. ;-) Pretty stupid I know. But I think I will get over this “appetite feeling” once the 1st day is out of the way. We’ll see.
How my day ... read more
