Hello everyone! I started my juice fast yesterday for some issues with Lupus I've been having. I've had joint pain for the past year, and progressive muscle weakness. I just had a EMG and found out it was myositis, but the cause of it is still pending. It could be from either too much prednisone, or something else where I need more prednisone.
Looking for some immediate relief (while waiting for my blood tests to come back), I decided to go on a juice fast, since I"ve heard great things about that cutting inflammation down.
Yesterday was actually day 1. I was too weak and fatigued to start my blog, even thoug I really wanted to. I'm doing both fruit and veg juices (more veg). Last night, at the end of day 1, my tongue was already coated white. Seems pretty early. My muscle pain was just as bad, although my hands weren't as swollen as they were at the start. I'd say that decreased 20%. Not bad for one day, right?
I am currently taking 15 mg/prednisone, which doesn't at all fix my joint pain. I'm also taking some coumadin for a blood clot in my leg. I'm anticipating going up in dosage soon, as my results are coming in soon from my latest blood test.
I went to bed with a headache and some hunger, and woke up feeling better.
So, today is day 2! I'm excited for how much better I can get through only juice fasting..I can't wait to see the final result.
I haven't decided how long this will last. I think I'll just go by my symptoms.
I'm posting on this blog because I'd love to hear about others who've done this, and also get some support along the way.
