Day 22 – Had a good sleep after getting to bed late. Paola left this morning which was sad. Luckily I still have James to keep me sane! Walked up and over steep hills for an hour and then back with James. My left ear kept blocking for the whole walk. We were up at quite a high altitude by the time we got to the top so maybe that had something to do with it. My ears are also still ringing which they have been doing for the last 2 weeks. Exhausted after walk so went straight to bed…Continue
The last week has been the most traumatic of my life and I’ve been to hell and back. I’m writing all this in hindsight as I was too exhausted and negative to document it at the time, so a lot of it is a hazy memory.
Day 8 – Bad sleep again due to neck and shoulder tension. Today I fell into a world of fear based insanity where I was having a mental battle in my head between good and evil and I experienced real fear for the first time. Lots of frightening visuals and I had a bit of…Continue
Day 1 – Slept badly again and was thinking about fruit all night so food is what I got in the morning. Was great to have my first meal and it tasted fantastic! Was also surprisingly satisfying. Went to bed straight after it and slept till the next meal 2 hours later. Had 5 meals for the first day of watermelon and thoroughly enjoyed everyone one of them. Such good watermelon! I also can have papaya but just want watermelon. It’s very tiring to be eating again and I just basically sleep…Continue
Well I just had one of the worst experiences of my life yesterday afternoon/last night. On day 3 of re-feeding at just before 1:30pm I had the sudden need for my first bowel movement since the first day of the fast so naturally went to have it. Everything wanted to work the way it always had except it just would not come out. I was coming up to my next meal in half an hour so wanted to get it over with but two and a half hours later I was still on the toilet and by this time was in quite…Continue
Day 29 – Finding it harder to get to sleep as I’m sleeping a bit throughout the day. Bit down today. No energy. Tongue is light again. Ears still ringing slightly. Got some emotional stuff coming up again.
Day 30 – Having very strange dreams but still sleeping well. Still down and dealing with emotional stuff. Tongue is light again. Brushed my teeth and gums bled a in the same spot. Realised I have a lot of tension around my eyes so trying to relax that area as much as…Continue
Day 22 - Slept well. Have notice a bit of bleeding and red gums around my lower right eye tooth when I brush my teeth. Not brushing for now to give it some healing time. Still a bit of flem in the morning but nothing bad. Occasional tone in alternating ears for a few seconds which is strange but not painful. Energy is a bit down today. A bit more gassy than usual. Right underarm smelling a bit like coffee again. Tongue coating is getting lighter.
Day 23 – Slept well. A lot…Continue
Day 15 – Slept well as the noise was more distant than I imagined it would be. Took awhile to get to sleep though as I had a bit of an emotional episode over feelings of unfinished business with my old band. I wanted to stop the fast and go home to rejoin the band. Also had strong cravings to eat old cooked foods and wish just to be “normal” like everyone else. Smells of these foods where coming from my right underarm which was very strange. Had symptoms for once where I had a mild pulsating…Continue
Day 8 – Slept well! Today things shifted and I felt increased weakness and a need for sleep so ended up sleeping sporadically throughout the day. Blood pressure was also very low
today. Found out I may have an issue
with how much I need to go to the toilet which I just thought was something
that varied in people. It’s been like
this since I can…
Should have listed these at the start for you all but it slipped my mind.
Things I’d like to heal;
Sneezing fits I’ve had since my teens
Failing reading eyesight
Injured elbow from a bike accident almost two years ago
Occasional coldsores (only get small unnoticeable ones now compared to the large ones I used to get)
Day 1 – A little hungry but water makes it subside.
Day 2 – Slept well but only from 9 to 3. Hungrier than yesterday but not that bad. No bowel movements today. Starting to feel tired and a little
week. Temperature a little low along
with blood pressure but spread is good. …

Well I start my first long fast tomorrow here at Tanglewood Wellness Centre in Panama, Central America. I'm doing a minimum of 3 weeks with the option of going longer, so maybe 6 weeks? I'd like to go longer than 3 weeks if possible but am going to wait and see how I feel when the time comes.
I'm very looking forward to this as the last 2 months have been really draining and I really need just to sleep and recover. Perfect opportunity to fast! Perfect place to fast as…Continue
So yet another anniversary comes around for me. Yesterday it was for 2 years no alcohol and today is for 2 years 811! So what has changed? Well what has not changed would be
more an easier question to answer! I don't have the time at this
moment but tomorrow I'll continue this blog and tell you all about
I've just spent the last month in Penang, Malaysia for the peak of the durian season. I have to say I've had some incredible durian during this time. Ang Hair, Holo, D2, D11, D14, D17, D18, D24, 100, 604, 754, to name a few. Fans of Penang durian consider it to be the finest in the world and treat it like a fine wine. They scoff at the Thai varietys! I've only had Thai durian in frozen form so can't really comment, though I am heading to Thailand very soon so may post an update after I…Continue
