...then why doesn't Professor Jelinek suggest it?
I was curious about fasting too. I've been looking up a lot about water fasting. I think that I could only do it for a day though, as I am very slender. I've lost almost 20 pounds since all of this started happening with me (LP & DX). So I would be unable to do any sort of extensive fast. But a day here and there would be worth a try.
On another note since I've started with my supplements my skin has cleared up significantly. I think this may also be due to the I improved diet and going gluten and dairy free. My nails are strong and hard, they are usually short and brittle. I do Vitamin D3 5,000-20,000 IU, vitamin b complex, mynax, vitamin e, fish oil, ginkgo, and co q 10. I also drink lots of red clover tea, as it detoxes the blood. I do flax seed oil daily. Since starting oral steroids I've cut down to just vit d, vit b, and mynax. Even those make me nervous because I'm unsure whether or not they will interfere with the steroids! So, all this is new for me. What makes me feel better is when I focus on what I can do to get to better health. I try so hard to replace my fear with being proactive! Some days are tough but this forum helps a bunch. Relating to others is so important.
