    kicked the cold a few days ago and i've been starting a 5-7 day water fast today. i need to get this ship back on track and i think this is a good way to jumpstart that.

    anyone who is reading this and is in the early phases of dealing with pfs, please let this be an important word of caution. don't indulge until pfs is long gone. i did so, thinking that there was no way i could get pushed that far back, and i paid the price by being set back in a major way. it's been a profoundly upsetting experience, and as a young man i'm currently in a place in life where i feel like i need to be working hard towards my future. the return of heavy symptoms makes that really hard, but i'm gonna be doing everything i can to put myself in a better place. things are just really hard right now. i'd be lying if i said i wasn't disappointed in myself and where i'm at.

    but life has to go on. i made very meaningful progress before, and i'm going to make it again, this time putting pfs in the rear view mirror forever. it's been done, and i have to believe in my own ability to do it.

    i have to be honest, i'm pretty scared right now. i'm on the third day of water fasting and what's killing me is the amount of brain fog that i have. it's making me question everything, and a mere two months ago i thought i'd never have to deal with it at this level again.

    thinking about my family, thinking about my friends, thinking about where i want to be and how far off that feels. i'm just a scared kid right now man. i've tried breathing exercises and meditation but that's only done so much. i'm not gonna do anything stupid but i'm struggling. i need hope. what can i do? any recommended reading or videos i can watch to calm this storm? i'm really sorry to bring negative talk onto this forum, it just means a lot to be able to voice this to other people who have been through this. i sincerely want to get better and see some of those brighter days.

    Stay strong, it does and will get better. Your body is going through a healing crisis, releasing bringing up a lot of toxicity which ends up exuberating symptoms.

    You're not going to feel good fasting while sick, it's very tough but necessary at this stage. Rest, sleep as much as you can if possible

    If you need to end the fast, end it or go on to juicing which is a lot easier on the system

    After you finishing fasting and start eating again, thats when you will feel the difference of improvement. What you're experiencing right now is routine.

    Donít be scared bro, I went through the SAME thing on my water fast. Brain fog was brutal and I could barely function or drive or anything, it was like I split from reality. It went away a couple days after I ended the fast, your body is in a detox stage so you might get that brain fog/dizzy sensation. Youíre good.

    also, what advice to you guys have for breaking the fast? i know and recognize that what you eat after the fact is also super important. i was thinking greens and berries smoothie for the first couple of days, then after that phasing in the normal paleo diet with good probiotics like sauerkraut and greek yogurt.

    No:

    To break the fast you want to start with melon, or something easily digestable. Eat that all day. Then SLOWLY reintroduce heavy and heavier foods as the says go on.

    Biggest mistake I see people making is eating too much too fast along with making the wrong food choices.

    first day of class today. broke fast yesterday, just been sticking to raw fruit and will until sunday or so, when i'll slowly start to reintroduce heavier foods.

    my brain fog and anxiety are still really bothering me. i have flashes here and there of less of it but it still really hurts to be dealing with that again after i had succeeded in mostly pushing that away. my classes this semester are pretty difficult, and i'm worried i won't be able to perform the way i want to. i'm meditating as much as i can, and getting ready to start hitting the protocol full force again after my refeed is done. but it's hard right now. this relapse has shaken me and i need to start feeling progress again. i need to keep my best foot forward and have faith.

    Spend some more time on the breathing exercises AND cold showers to knock out brain fog. No such thing as too many cold showers or breath work.
