Oh, for sure. I'm totally against anything on a fast but I am curious by this just for the nature of the protcol... Not that I think it's superior to Water Fasting by any stretch. What frustrates me is because some big wow-TCM doctor made her drink black tea and herb mix, it's all good and except able enough for even our donkey prime minister Malcone turnbul to do.... But when I do a safer more pure water fast, everyone accuses me of having an eating disorder. It's a joke, but also very very awful having to constantly defend yourself from having a mental disorder - and I never even fast to loose weight I'm not overweight. Societies double standards... So hypocrital it's actually sickening.
I do want to know what is in those herbs... But I guess I won't know (except bitter/liver/kidney tonic) I will call the AusTCM wholesalers... They always let out secrets lol.
The black tea (caffine) would be totally messing up their adrenals. It's probably just to mask the nasty detox symptoms. Most of the people doing it wouldn't be living clean to start with (just after a quick fix) so when they do it they'd be feeling like hell - the black tea would just cover it up nicely, all the while hurting their cortisol and nervous system. I'm so not for this type of thing. It's interesting how many gurus want to take the perfect cure of Water Fasting and adulterate it supposedly to make it more copeable but inadvertadly cause more damage.
Curious about cupping on a fast... What are your thoughts?
