Doing 30 days of Juice Fasting. Starting September 27, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Heal my digestion & liver as well as improve my mental clarity.
Past Fasting Experience:
Just recently finished a 12 day juice fast (my intention was to go for 30 days) and unfortunately broke it. And when I say I broke it, I mean I broke it: pizza, pancakes, peanut butter, cheese & crackers all spread out over two days and one night of drinking and smoking. I have since regrouped and recommitted myself to the 30 day Juice fast again.
Before the fast was primarily eating vegetarian with red meat maybe once a week. Typically had a veggie shake once a day and a raw meal once a day. Pigged out on tofu, potatoes, and beans. Multiple raw protein shakes throughout the day.

Relevant Medical History:
Three years ago I had a Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, and Ultra Sound done and my gastroenterologist finally came to the conclusion that I had IBS
Present Medication or Drug Usage:
State of Mind:
Encouraged, especially after doing the 12 day fast and seeing such great results mentally and physically. I truly feels like this is the right thing to do in order to heal.
* Even though I broke my fast on the 12th day and did so in a pretty harsh manner, does that mean that I need to start the whole 30 day juice fast over or can I regroup and just add on a few more days to the original fast? * With the knowledge that my liver and small intestine are damaged, should I take any supplementation to assist in healing during the fast? I also have Candida, should I take an anti fungal? * Is it recommended to take additional supplements geared towards detoxification like Bentonite during this time? Forgive me for all the questions, just trying to get this right. Appreciate all your advice and support
