Wow, I don't know what my take on medication and fasting is. I'm seeing a nationally renowned physical therapist who says I could rebuild my back in 2 years (I'll be 61 by then). I'm on morphine for the pain, and the surgeon I saw said he wouldn't touch my back it was so bad.
When I was younger I'd fast and experiment with herbs to see what they did. I almost passed out from Lobelia, and got a lot of different effects from different herbs. That's why I opt for the water fast. Herbs are powerful when fasting, and presumably at other times also. I've fasted while continuing meds many times. I did alright. Well, we probably all know it's not optimal. But when I quit my aspirin and HBP meds for one week I ended up with a couple mini strokes. For right now I'm just trying to get my back in shape so I can get off the morphine.
I'm not a lot of help anymore. Just trying to slug it out and keep working everyday. It's tough and I'd appreciate the prayers of any who pray. I need to keep going to 63.
