Thank you so much for the welcome message and the suggestion!! I will check out the book this next week. I have a family event for this holiday weekend. I'm already finding some great suggestions here in the forums. Thanks again. I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness!! :-)
wow thanks for sharing that rumi quote on the 'vegan diet didn't work for me rant' post- i ended up googling him and reading a couple dozen poems, and i think i am satisfied spiritually for at least a few days going forward. makes me feel as good as reading tao te ching, or eckhart tolle. thank you, thank you!!!
Hi ednshell! I just wanted to pop by and say a big thank you for always taking the time and trying to help us less knowledgeable and experience fruitbats!
About 6 weeks ago I was complaining about having had a more or less constant cold with an on and off fever for 6 months. I then started taking 3000-4000 micrograms of Vitamin C daily after you had suggested looking in to high dose Vitamin C treatment, and for the last 3 weeks I've been able to ride my bike to work again and go out for runs (still very short and low intensity compared to what I used to do, but still) - and the fever has not returned like it did every time I exercised during the last 6 months. My skin is still breaking out, and I'm still heavier than I would like to be - but it feels amazing just to slowly start exercising again after having been forced to be completely sedentary for 6 months! I'll absolutely keep taking my Vitamin C supplements.
Many, many thanks for your advice, it's really made such a difference :)
Hi ednshell! No, I didn't see the thread you referred to. Got a link?
I had (and to a certain extent probably still have) mercury toxicity, and I did a water fast several years ago. I have no reason to believe that my mercury toxicity made my water fast in any way unsafe or hurtful. Who knows, this generally may be ill-advised for reasons that I'm unaware of, but I had no symptoms of being re-poisoned or anything. My psoriasis completely disappeared during my fast and continued to be absent after the fast.
Having said that, i have no reason to believe that my water fast in any way took care of my high mercury levels. It took care of the symptoms splendidly, but the real healing seemed to happen when I started supplementing with glutathione, and later on down the line, started removing my amalgams. I had some nice healing happen because of my fast, but it seems unrelated to the whole mercury thing.
Out of respect for the wishes of the site, I do not post anything on my annual water only sites...but am willing to answer questions.
Have not heard of teeth regrowing from water fast, but when in Aspen (early '70's), heard of a local whose teeth filled in the cavities while on a fruitarian mono-diet of dates only.
On my big water fast, I did lose all my grey hair (late 50's) and regrow it all and more within a few months.
Honey has been on vegan dog food, Natural Balance and Evolution along with Ann Martin (Food Pets Die For) anti-cancer diet of cooked veges, some pig fat, sardines etc. ... a T or 2 mixed in with food). I recently switched her to salmon dry dog food for a month. That's when the pink urine started. If this isn't your area, please tell me and I won't waste your time. Thanks. Just lost my Great Dane to osteosarcoma, so I'm not at all happy about this new turn of events.
My little Honey, long haired dachshund mix has dark pink concentrated urine. I looked it up online and says could be cancer. She's about 13-14. She just had a 1" diameter tumor removed from her lip two months ago. She has a lump under her arm and a hard lump next to one of her nipples. Any thoughts? Thank you so very much, Trish

Padtf (I hope I got that right!) referred me to you as having experience fasting your raw food vegan dog. My Great Dane, Betty, age 7 this month, was just diagnosed with osteosarcoma bone cancer in her right front leg just above her paw. Could you please pass along anything I could use to help her heal? I've been giving her wheatgrass powder (and going to grow fresh now), Flor Essence tea, turkey tail mushrooms, Transfer Factor Plus, kelp, coconut oil, fresh garlic, ginger, basil, parsley, oregano, pureed veges, etc.
