Is a 110h water fast a failure?

Ok, let´s talk failure and disappointment in one self. In a lot of the fasting groups on Facebook l often read post where someone had decided to do a 48h, 72h, 96h or even 1 week water fast but for some reason they stopped the fast before they were supposed to. All of them - without an exception - touch on the topic of feeling like a failure. "I am so disappointed in myself" one writes"l hate myself for quitting" another one writes"l feel like such a failure" another one says l planned to do a 140h fast because it…

When people find out l am water fasting their first response is: "Isn't that hard?!"And yes! It is!Not eating and only drinking salt water for 3 days, you bet its hard!Of course it is!Anyone that says otherwise cant be from this planet! But HOW hard it is, obviously is subjective.

Fasting – what happens when?

In order to tell you more about water fasting let me just tell you about what is happening in the body when you are fasting and why l have been so against water fasting. Intermittent Fasting is great! No debate about that! There are so many benefits that l will dedicate an entire post to that. The difference between Intermitten Fasting (IF) and Extended Fasting (EF) is that in IF you eat every day, in EF you go longer than 1 day without food. The main reason to why l have been so against EF is (besides the dehydration of…

Handicapped. Inadequate. Vulnerable

But l am not. l look, speak, interact (at least at first glance) completely normal.So when my handicap kick in people just think l am immensely darf, not listening, disinterested or anything else…

I finally got my SPECT scan! It has been 10 months getting here and would not have been possible without all the help l have gotten! l am so grateful for that!Thank you!

I have been to 10+ neurologists, in Spain, Denmark, Austria and England, every single one with…
