Parasite fast: day 2, Very sore but I believe it is due to detoxing.
Negative symptoms seem to be mixing with detox symptoms. There is a flux in energy and mood. I am very sore and it is hard to move, but I believe my body is detoxing and it feels good because of it.

parasite fast: day 2
It is 1:00 pm. I am juice fasting today to slowly build up to water fasting for longer periods of time.
All I have eaten since the night of 1/28 is 8 oz. of vegetable juice that I had about 1/2 hr. ago. That is a day and a half, or 39 hours. Wow.
I feel good. First let me factor in symptoms that I am already dealing with:
Bipolar: My mood is up, I am positive in my thoughts. But my energy and motivation are pretty low which is an unusual mix.
Parasites: for the last week, particularly, my whole body has felt tight and rigid in addition to other uncomfortable symptoms. It is very hard to explain. I feel like if I were bent, I could crack. It is hard for me to move.
I am feeling the parasite symptoms acutely right now.(don't forget, besides the 3 inch white, flat worm I saw in my stool the other day, I have no formal confirmation that my symptoms are caused by parasites. A number of them do match symptoms of parasites though) My body is very rigid and it is difficult to move. I have never experienced anything like this. What I am feeling seems to have been activated by the 8 oz. of juice I had. As if the juice were speeding up the detoxification process. Either my body is just rigid, or it is rigid because things are being pulled out of it, which is what I hope. I have an enormous amount of faith in the fasting process. I believe it can only do good. Only time will tell. The pain in my joints and organs is better. That is a good sign and is feeding my positive belief in what I am doing. Or, maybe the juice just fed the parasites and that is why some of my symptoms have reoccurred. Hmmmmm.
My mood has been up and down a lot today. At 1:00 it was good, then after that it fell. I got quite depressed. I felt hopeless about other aspects of my life. I had a very, very hard time moving and motivating for most of the day. My body felt like it was made of boulders. Everything was hard. I went out and did a few simple errands. The car felt like it had no power steering.
I came home around 8:00. I pushed myself to take the dog for a 20 min. walk. I read that it is good to walk a bit when fasting. It was very hard to motivate to go for the walk like everything else today. But while walking, I felt my ear clear a little. I have had clogged ears for months. Its like they have been impacted with a very thick, sticky wax. They cleared quite a bit while I was walking and continued. I took this as a great sign and achievement. It made me feel so good and positive that it lifted my mood. Or...maybe my mood lifted due to the fast, who knows. But it lifted and I had more energy. My body is aching almost all over, but at least I have more energy than I did earlier today and I am optimistic.
My body is aching in ways similar to the way it did before I went on the fast--due to parasites, I believe. But it feels more pronounced now: my lower back aches, many muscles in my upper body are tender and sore. My hip bones still hurt. That is a symptom that I have had for about 5 or 6 months. They became very sore and tender in the last week and played a big part in my belief that parasites are causing these problems. I am still quite low in energy and am weak which is of course to be expected when fasting. I do not mind the soreness or lack of energy, especially after my ears cleared some, because I believe what I am feeling is due to acute detoxing. I feel good. I think there is a big difference between feeling pain and discomfort due to a cause that is getting worse compared to one that is disappearing, ie. through detoxing. Despite the soreness, I feel good. I believe the soreness is due to detoxing, to my body naturally ridding itself of very pernicious foreign parasites that have gotten into my bones, muscles, and organs. Yuck. I live with 3 dogs and struggling with Bipolar Disorder makes it hard to keep the house as neat as I should. The dogs carry in gross dirt from the backyard and I am sure there is sometimes feces in it. I know this is gross, but it is the truth. They have a big backyard and a doggie door, so they are in and out all day.
I want to note that my body is sore but much less rigid than it was earlier today.
Another interesting reaction I noticed is that there is some pain occasionally under my left armpit. I am guessing that is a lymph node clearing out. On top of being sore, I have had sharp pains coming from afflicted areas like my lower back, hip bones. Again, I can only guess that this is my body drawing out parasites. I am not overly concerned about what is actually going on because I know what a panacea fasting is, and like I said before, I believe it can only do good. I have faith it is going to take away my soreness and much of my fatigue.
I have had a total of 32 oz. of freshly juiced veggie juice today.
