I don't think I ever got a chance to thank you both for guiding me through my first water fast. I only lasted a week, I had to cut it short because supervisors at work thought I was going to drop dead while driving the forklift or something LOL ;D To me a week was a big accomplishment, I couldn't have done it without you guys. During that time my lips actually stopped peeling and looked great for a few days, unfortunately once I started eating again the peeling cycle of my lips followed.
I've been going to a TCM doc who says I have too much heat in my gut. I'm pretty sure he's right, in TCM the lips correspond with the spleen/intestines/stomach. I've been getting acupuncture and taking herbal pills for over a month with no results.. I'm getting kinda frustrated but won't ever give up until I cure this $@(@ disease.
I think you both may want to look more closely into these machines yourselves, I'm sure the water would probably produce miracles if used to fast. Check out these videos and please give me some input on if you think this is legit!!!
This video I found particularly interesting because it shows that alkalized "kangen" Water Cure s atopic dermatitis which is a disease said to be incurable by western medicine (just like exfol. cheilitis). I actually had/have skin rashes VERY similar to this on the back of my knees and insides of my arms, I'm pretty sure its the same thing.
