At nearly 5 years TSW, I feel the need to fast. I wanted to fast my first few years of TSW but knew it would be too dangerous as our bodies are in bad shape. Fasting is known to cure health problems but being ill when doing a fast can be fatal. I have lingering hives and itching that comes and goes. Some things and certain diets helped but only short term. I feel my gut needs a break from work in order to heal itself. I see this as anyone taking a vacation from work to rest their soul and mind.
My gut's vacation started last evening. My last food was around 7 pm. Today I feel awful. I'm a coffee drinker so I got the caffeine withdrawal headache going on and I feel drained. No issue with hunger today which means tomorrow will be pretty rough. They say the first 2 days are the worst. My itching is down by over 50% and no hives today. I'm flared on my neck and face and arms from recent probiotics and kefir. Thought I had a dairy problem but I'm learning it's an intolerance to probiotics which is bad because probiotics is supposed to help with healing not make things worse. Oh well... I will see how I do tomorrow.
