thanks for that. what i am really learning is to surrender to the process and not let western medicine get in the way.
i imagine it is like a bottleneck- the fat stores are being dumped rapidly, which causes a back up (temporarily) in the liver. that is a simplification, i know, but it works.
i have sooo muuuuch detox to do. i am experiencing some now, with a weird taste in my mouth, mucus and such.
i have a set finish date because the state of my life just doesn't allow me to fast indefinitely. i am on day 17 of a 29 day fast for now. in the spring i will do another fast and get further into detox and healing my body.
i know i will have many more questions as this continues. the input from more experienced fasters is greatly appreciated.
