during 5 years, i have tried several times to do a strict water fasting. At the very beginning, it was very hard, I remember my first 24 hours, i thought i was about to die. I felt depressed. The Die-off effects peaked to the maximum i felt dizzy. I felt foggy for sure but it was not the worst thing. I remember i have tried 15 days water fasting. When i started to eat after a 15 days water fasting i felt very very very bad. I had horrible intestinal pain after eating. I had that kind of intestinal pain when i started to change my diet a long time ago, and i know that candidiasis suffers know what i am talking about.
It was more than that. i could not do anything. I thought i was about to die. My health condition was so bad so that i have called the hospital. However, i am not sure whether those 15 days water fasting were useful or not.
It is useless to hurt yourself. think water fasting can be really dangerous for candidiasis sufferers. However, i didn’t see a big difference between the time before the water fasting and after the water fasting. I really discourage you to do what i have done. I have found myself in extreme weakness situations. At the end, i have seen a doctor. I had to call my parents to help me. It made the situation more complicated (and it was complicated enough with the chronic fatigue).
I have found an alternative. 1 meal = 1 day.
The idea is to put all the meals together rather than eating 3 times a day. I know already someone who only eat one meal per day since 30 years and he is still alive. It inspired me to do the same. This way, your intestine is working and flushes the bad stuff. Furthermore, you don’t endanger yourself. I would like to pin point that even if you eat more during this meal, you will see that when you don’t eat the die-off is stronger. Then , you are on the good fast track.
In my case, i have calculated that i ate 350 grams of food twice a day. So, i have created one daily meal with 700 grams of food. It is important to eat enough, otherwise, if you don’t eat enough and if you are hungry after 2 hours, you ruin your efforts.
I haven’t been able to keep the 1 meal 1 day diet very long because when i have decided to stop alcohol, the die-off was strong for the two first months. Nevertheless, stopping to nibble had a big benefit. The more i think about it and the more i think that stopping alcohol had a big impact. I am still surprised about it since i have never been a heavy drinker.
