Water Fasting For Clear Skin

32 posts in this topic

I am already clear... Read my log to see what I went through.. I am happy now.. Happy with my skin while is always improving.. As I fast it heals more and more and I look better and better!

I don't know how long this fast will last.. But it has been 24 hours.. I will post here every time I fast and also in my other log.. It has valuable information.. please if you suffer read my first post.. it could change your life.. I am not selling anything I just really want to help people love and accept themselves..

Fasting has helped my skin tone and people ask me if im 16-20 all time time .. it actually decreases your aging.. and can make scars go away after a couple weeks.. Longest water fast I did was 36 days.. then 22.. with another 9 and 10 and a few 3 day fasts etc.. So here I am about to do another 1 day which could end up 2 days 7 days 14 days 28 days i just dont know at this point.. Anyways even if I fast for a day I will post here as the fasting connection blog has been closed down. And I feel it could help people on here more anyways..

symptoms so dar are headache... slight hunger but more urge to continue..

let me add that I do this for spiritual reasons (controlling ones will power) and the increased skin deep beauty is just a perk of it..

Good luck.. happy fasting

Your insides will start eating itself.

All the pills and medications here are MUCH more harming them me fasting.. Believe me.. I was on everything from mino, retina a, close to accutane but NOTHING worked.. If anything they made me worse because they killed the inside of my digestion..

Anyways I want to not that fasting does not kill your insides.. It HEALS your insides.. do some googling.. buddah, jesus and many other greats have fasted because they know the power of healing. It can heal any disease including acne which it healed in my case.

I am starting day 1 again.. I ate last night at about 8:00 ... I ate chocolate... M n M 's (peanut) a half of a veggie sub.. Pasta.. and apple juice.. oo and a salad and grapes.. oo and a root beer float.. some how I still weight 139-140 this morning lol..

Like I said I am healed so none of that stuff effected my skin what so ever.. I am still glowing with not 1 new blemish.. Why? Because my digestive is healed from fasting and raw eating for a year...oo and my thoguths changed.. (self love vs self hate thoughts)

I would like to continue raw/vegan or at least mostly .. It was not my plan yesterday but I was taking a test for about 9 hours and ended up eating after the test or in between :0

So anyways fasting day 1 AGAIn... lol starts now..

weight 139.6

skin CLEAR

mood happy

stuff im doing: getting a massage in an hour or so

what im eating/drinking: water only starting at 11 last night!~

I really have no craving for food though! More craving to make it past 14+ days.... In 6 more hours it will be 48 hours.. 2 days down :) I no I will get to day 3 that's for sure.. It's weird I just went on fasting connection . co m and the whole website seems to be down... That website usually gets me through these fasts so I hope it goes back up soon.

Symptoms of fast: My ear/throat is still a tiny bit infected.. I am already down to 137.. Cravings seem to be absent ..

Day 5... yay.. feeling really good. Almost gave up but didnt.. I feel a little bit hungry but mainly the temptation of eating has went away. I think it's because I've been away from the houseon a mini vacation so I don't really think about food too much. I'm not sure how much I weigh right now because I am away from my house. I should be back tomorrow and will log my weight. As of now I am NOT having any symptoms I guess because I have fasted many times in the past. At this point in the fast I used to get very bad detox symptoms like skin rashes. A couple skin rashes have happened on my face but they only last for about 30 minutes. I have no desire to eat right now the desire to fast inis stronger. Overall I feel really good

the fast doctor speaks about fasting

"Anyone who is interested in The Fast Doctor's approach to fasting and Nature Cure I invite you to listen to this highly informative audio interview recorded April 19th 2013 and presented by the very eloquent Kim Greenhouse.

Topics covered:

Two types of toxins: Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic

Get healthy by getting 'things out' rather than 'putting things in'.

Fears of muscle loss during a fast.

010 Lifestyle or alternate day fasting: the benefits

Why the cell needs a break too.

Nature Cure and conventional medicine are they compatible.

What's up with peer reviews.

How hydrophobic toxins are eliminated.

Why hydrophobic toxins are sent to fat cells rather than eliminated.

Why a less rich diet is optimal for your health

How a man is given a new lease of life after fasting at the Hoogland Health Hydro.

And how does one really pronounce Dr Kruger's name.

and plenty more......" quoted from fastingconnection.com by David

day 8....

no temptation at all.. no symptoms except white tongue and gross smell from my armpits (detoxing)... skin looks beautiful.. more beautiful then before i started.. Little blackheads popping out ( i didnt have very many and my nose looks really good to but the ones that were there are now gone) and then one popping out on my cheek . when you fast the bad stuff this literally falls off... a whole layer of my skin peeled of! I dont exfoliate my face to much on a fast because i want my skin to heal.. so far only once. I literally have no temptation to eat its weird because usually I struggle with food and fasting but this time the drive is so strong that I just want to keep going and going! Theres no turning back now.. Flawless skin and digestive tract will be the result.. I plan to eat raw vegan for a week after and then have one of my faves.. sushi!

Day 9 in t- 2 1/2 hours.. yayyyyyy

Day 9... feeling good.. glad im still continuing.. looked at my skin in the sun today outside and a mirror and it looks really good.. its amazing what a week of fasting can do just for the texture... Going to get a massage on monday... Over all I feel really good.. The thought of eating again is nice but the healing my inner digestion and skin is going through is well worth the wait.. Plus I can only do this a couple times a year in between school and then again at christmas when im out of school.. my weight is 128-130 im not really sure becasue my scale is off.. But it goes up and down depending on how much water I drink.. My goal is to get to 114.. The weight comes off slower at this point in the fast.. At first you will lost a lot of weight but now maybe a pound every day or 2? IDK.. I cant wait till I see 125 at least..

Day 10-

So this morning I noticed some minor scars on my right cheek/face.. I am going to fast long enough and let you guys know if I see any progress.. I have seen progress with this before... each time I do long fasts they heal more and more.. I really try not to look in the mirror and criticize and most of the time so the louise hay method of loving myself while looking in the mirror etc (hence why my acne has cleared) however this morning I just observed them and looked back it and got in a healthy mind set again not focusing on them.. They are more like pores/scars kinda ice pick but really small but there kinda in one area.. The other side has none.. My theory is that I derma rolled on that side which is what created them... because I didnt do it to the other side..

I am not hungry.. watched people eat mexican eariler yes I am excited to eat... but the healing on my skin and digestive and weight loss is far more worth it to be then food.. I just want to heal from the inside out.. I feel the spirit so much right now.. I only got 3 hours of sleep last night and am not tired.. Its all mind set.. Lately when I stand I dont even get dizzy.. its just weird.. this is my best fast yet.. 7 hours untill day 11

i know that fasting for a day or maybe a few days might be beneficial, but i daresay regularly fasting for over a week has to put some stress on the body's vital functions, non?

socially, it must be awkward?! psychologically tough, creating negative associations with food in general?

Mds- go to fastingconnection . com and also google fasting on youtube.. also google water fasting on google. I have researched it extensively and have had personal experience with fasting. It has brought me closer to God, enhanced my self confidence, and made me a master of free will.. When you fast I never think negative thoughts like "this is hurting me" quite the opposite in fact.. It has healed my gut.. I have been through a lot with acne you can read my logs and for me personally fasting has been a God send.. There are fasting retreats where doctors measure and look into your vital functions. Over use of medicine and food is what kills people. Fasting gives your body a break from all the stuff your are consistently putting into it. The longer the fast, the more you can heal. However I only know of people going up to 45 days and being with a doctor the entire time.

anywho- Day 11 yay!!

Feeling good.. White tongue.. BO seems to be gone and I smell good again :) The first week or so the BO was strong because of toxins.. Off to do a house move and not sure when im getting internet connected so I wil be posting from my phone :)

Happy fasting

Have internet lol.. Can't live with out it

day 12. i just want to say I had some green tea and noticed a big difference.. For me it takes away the effects of water fasting.. I guess it is changing the chemicals in your brain .. personally I had more energy etc but I think for now on I will be on a pure water fast.. Also because I noticed instead of my skin being smooth like when I just have water it became an odd texture.. I woke up today with little red marks kinda on my face but now they are gone.. My tongue is very white. My BO is pretty much gone or not bad at least.. Energy is good.. Other then that just excited to be done so I can have this all you can eat sushi bar my husband keeps talking about lol (not right after as I will be breaking it with coconut water or some kind of fruit).. I dont know my weight because I dont have a scale.. I'll have one sat but last time I checked I was 128-130. I def look skinnier but still have excess fat to lose.. Skin is clear however when I drank the green tea I did have a slight thing with the skin.. another reason why I dont think i'll be doing tea.. yes it makes the fast easier.. But I think it takes away the purpose of letting the body be chemical free and heal like it can when its just water. Thats it for now!

Well done, you're doing really well!

That's strange about the tea, if it's making your skin react that way, what will happen when you break the fast? Do you think your skin will remain smooth?

Are you seeing a doctor or braving it alone?! Did you see a doc on your 36 day one?

Also, i think i read a post where you mentioned you were on accutane, just wondering if you had any side effects afterwards and if so, did fasting repair them?

I have some digestive problems and dry skin after accutane and i read that people have even resolved their impotency issues through fasting!

Sorry for all the questions haha, all this is just fascinating.. I can't believe fasting isn't mainstream knowledge, it seems like a miracle cure for some conditions!

Hope you're doing well!

  • DAY 13

So .. day 13 here.. ahhh ordered pizza for the hubs last night and oh my ba jeeze did it smell good.. I just smelled it for like 5 minutes.. along with the garlic butter sauce lol.. The most potent things smell the best when fasting (food wise) and it reminds you of what will be eventually.. But for day I want to get past 3 weeks with this fast so about 1 more week and ill be at 3 weeks.. 2 more weeks 4 weeks.. SO I read the other day that your skin replaces it self every 30 days.. and all the sin you see is already dead...soooo no wonder why my scars heal!! lol

Im not putting food into my body.. and my skin is still shedding at a faster rate and growing at a faster rate so it has time to fix all of the flaws.. So I have been through a few long term fasts.. Happy for each one.. thankful for each one.. So glad there is a natural alternative to healing scars that has worked for me..

whatever you do dont derma roll.. that cause one side of my face to actually have these scars.. also okay ya know what heres a lisst of things not to do

  • dont derma roll
  • dont use retina a , diffrin etc
  • NO antibiotics
  • no topicals everyday
  • minimize facial products
  • dont stress
  • dont pick
  • dont critize yourself when you look in the mirror
  • no meds.. accutane etc ... no more MEDS~!

Things to do .... for good skin :)

  • acupuncture
  • no stress
  • meditate
  • deep brethe
  • love yourself
  • look in the mirror and say you love your self (and mean it)
  • no sope or harsh products
  • i use light moisturizer but have not perfected one yet
  • eat clean
  • dont stress about eating eat what you want when you want in moderation... if you crave something eat it but not for 2 months straight!
  • no meat
  • vegan raw food is the best
  • listen to meditation tapes
  • fast to heal scars

I finish this later because someone needs the computer..

<3 you all
