Fasting Experiences from Readers

A place for shared fasting stories.

Over the years, I've been honored by the numerous fasting experiences readers have shared with me. They have been generous with their time to share these wonderful insights with me.

This section of the site is devoted to sharing these valuable fasting stories on a larger scale. We can all benefit from the fasting experiences of others — it helps us on our own journeys of self-discovery about our bodies, our emotions, all the patterns and habits that make us who we are.

More often than not, fasting experiences are inspirational, revealing a brighter side of life, a brighter side that emerges through the whir of our busy lives, and clarity unveils the simplicity and beauty of life itself.

Sometimes these stories show us new effects of fasting on old health issues. People are often amazed at the various healings that occur. Sometimes it's just little annoying things that heal, and sometimes fasting heals or becomes the antidote for some rather major health issues.

And we can all benefit from shared tips and techniques for fasting. It's nice to have some hints for along the way.

If you have fasting experiences or stories that you think would benefit others, write me about them, and then I can post them here for others to read.
