I went on a fast several years ago to get rid of candida and ... in fact, it was the ONLY thing that got finally got rid of it. I am so grateful that I did it . The candida was very awful... causing bloating, and all other kinds of craziness and I'm glad that I kicked that loser OUT!! I have NEVER had that 'candida bloating madness" since.
My candida occurred after taking rounds of Antibiotics ( I was too uneducated about natural healings to know that Antibiotics were 'bad" at the time. I sure learned my lesson for GOOD!) The candida and the cure for it ( fasting) taught me a LOT right there. Candida is certainly no fun. It was tough craving those dead foods and then having to feel its affect quadruple fold in the worse ways.
I am starting another fast again ( after taking another break with my favorite salad veggies.)
So, I'm here with you.
I think for me too, the first few days are the toughest. Let's ride this boat together.
Oh yeah, I will be posting in the juice forum again.
