As indicated, I'm almost afraid to say anything but can't keep my mouth shut. I bought seawater to do "The Marine Therapy" (Ocean Plasma) http://www.truthquest2.com for other problems--low pH, muscle pain, blurry vision, fatigue, etc. so was surprised (actually, shocked!) to find an unexpected side effect. So far, after just a few days, it seems to be taking my appetite down to nothing. And when I do eat, for the first time there seems to be a built-in appetite thermostat signaling fullness that wasn't there before. I can eat, but just don't think about it much. Considering the ton of weight I gained when my thyroid and adrenals crashed in 2000, this would be a miracle if I could actually join the people hear in fasting, for health as much as for weightloss. A 3 day fast would bring on a detoxification event that only happens after 72 hours without food. My doctor ordered me to do this as part of the healing protocol, but it took a year, and only then because I was put out for oral surgery and slept for two days. I don't know if it's because seawater is the greatest source of organic minerals that absorb completely right away--I do remember reading somewhere that our cravings and binges actually come from nutritional deficiencies--but whatever it is, I hope it lasts. If it helps me do an actual water-only fast, I'll report back. I got it from this Canadian company http://www.oceanplasma.org If anybody else tries this, please also report back. If this is a "thing" I'm telling the company they are missing out on a big marketing angle.
