Water Only Fasting and Medications/Supplements
« on: July 24, 2019, 04:39:45 AM »

When doing a water only fast, should I discontinue my medications at the time (pentox, hytrin) and the numerous natural supplements I am taking.  I am doing the fast to help heal damaged/scarred tissue.  Thanks!

Fasting lowers blood pressure, so you might want to be careful with hytrin, and it also lowers blood coagulation (which pentox does).

Fasting is very healthy but you do have to ease into it. Personally I fast 23 hours a day (I eat one meal a day most days), and this is enough to keep my insulin resistance away and keep all my other health issues in check. My single meal is keto or carnivore.

I somewhat worry about people going from a standard diet to suddenly fasting but I don't see it being a problem. It's much easier to become fat adapted first, or do some short fasts first.

+1 with Neo. The world of fasting is fascinating, generally awesome, sometime even miraculous on some pathologies, but you want to approach it in a very progressive and smooth fashion in order to reap all its rewards.

Start with standard intermittent fasting (like 18/6), then after a few week try some little 24-36H fasts, then go for 3-4, and then even longer when you feel like it (your body will know)!

And no, don't take any supplement or vitamin when you're fasting (for more than 36h I mean, which for me is where a "real" fast begins): you precisely want your body to upregulate its own anti-inflammatory/antioxydant/autophagic pathways, so if you give him substances that substitute its action, you may no get as many results :-).

Cheers and welcome to the super cool fasting universe,

I stop all supplements and medication when I am fasting.

The exception is, of course, necessary medication. If you are diabetic, you need to continue taking your long-acting insulin if your glucometer states you are hyperglycemic.

I also recommend an auto CPAP device --> increases REM sleep --> increased nocturnal erection.

The only issue is the pentox is supposedly a cumulative effect so stopping would mean it starts over?  Also I am on testosterone therapy that would mean I need to stop that too?  How long have you fasted for?  Did you get results?
