Thanks for your rundown on your Water Fasting experience. Personally I feel it should be done after a lot of primary cleanup has taken place... it's just too harsh otherwise.
I have never lost hair on juice, with the exception of my 60 day megafast. About two months after I broke that one I lost hair for about two months, and my excellent naturopath explained that my metabolism was resetting itself and that the hair would return. It did, but I agree, it was no fun! Other fasts up to 30 days have caused no such problem.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised at your energy level during a juice fast. As I'm sure I mentioned, I am able to continue my regular workout every fasting day barring crises. Again, it is very important to do a colon cleansing routine every fasting day to remove toxins quickly and help avoid crisis situations.
I am not getting notifications either, so I try to drop in every few days. If you need me don't hesitate to mail me direct.
