Iím here because I decided to do my first fast (water fast day 3) I am hoping to make it to 7-10 days. I believe I am experiencing a healing crisis, the first day of my fast I decided to do so cardio to help my body expell the toxins about an hour or so after my workout my right tonsil started to become inflamed and infected. I thought about going to the doctor to get so Antibiotics but opted against it as I figured this could just be detoxification (I gargled with salt water instead) it helped to take some of the infected mucous off of my tonsil. I sleps terribly that night as the pain in my throat progressed, I was sweating even though the fan was on. The morning of the second day both of my tonsils were infected. I continued to gargle with salt water and I got the same results as the day before (a little mucus off of my tonsils). I figured I needed to keep sweating so I did another 45mins of cardio(mostly walking but with a sweat top on). Day three my right tonsil is less infected but still inflamed, my left tonsil is infected and inflamed, and my uvula is red and sore along with the rest of my throat. My neck is also very sore. I have had problems with my throat and tonsils since I was child and I am hoping detoxification and healing is was Iím experiencing. I searched all over the internet and I canít find anyone with even a remotely similar experience. Please help! Should I keep sweating or just stay in bed? I do intend on powering through this. Thanks in advance! Justice.
