I also have been drinking plenty of Distilled Water in between meals.
Symptoms: bad headache, weak, gurgling tummy, forgetfulness ( I forgot to pick up my son from school!), I'm having a hard time writing this blog, at about 4 p.m. my left kidney started hurting and it lasted about an hour. Wierd huh? Cuz last night it was my right kidney? Tongue not really coated at all. Oh yeah, strong B.O, which is unusual for me since going raw!
I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to go to the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep. Immediately I was aware of some chest pain, headache, and overall weak feeling. I laid in bed and fell in and out of sleep. I also noticed "gurgling" in my abdomen which has lasted throughout the day with no bowl movement or gas.
When my DH came to get me for scriptures, I was NOT up to it and stayed in bed. So, I guess it's true what they say. Day 3 is when you really begin to feel the detox symptoms.
My DH made me my breakfast and I had asked him to surprise me. It was defintely a surprise! Not my favorite. It's funny. He didn't tell me what he put in it. But, I guess my taste buds are impeccable because when he called me later on I asked him if he had put in some of the salsa I had made in the fall from veggies from our garden that I had frozen. And he had! I could taste a "freezer burn" kind of taste. I drank all 4 c. but it was not fabulous.
I've been doing so much reading and learning about juice feasting and detoxing etc. I have most enjoyed hearing so many peoples testimonies about their healing through fasting. I am filled with hope even though, today, I have pretty much felt like crap, all the while grateful that my body is doing what it was divinely created to do. Heal. And I WILL finally heal. Watch me!
I'm not craving food. Even though, as I write this, the house is filled with the delicious aroma of our vegan homemade pizza, although, when my DH walked into our room eating some, I asked him to come back after he was finished. ;)
I don't have a "cut off" date for this fast. I'm just going to listen to my body and follow the Spirit!
Please keep me in your prayers!
