After a good night's sleep, and waking at 4:00 AM for meditation, I went back to bed at 6:30 for another couple of hours.

So far, my focus is on the liver detox and taking those herbs three times a day.  This morning I had some flatulence, a bit of feeling achy in my body, and lots of sneezing.  

After taking the herbs this morning, I drank some water.  Before I left the house I ate a few cut oranges knowing that fruit juice would not be enough substance for the day.  I am feeling like the only way I could continue this fast would be if I just stayed in bed and rested, not because I am so tired but because it is the best for healing.  Instead, I will be going to a friend's house for a massage.

Great natural morning elimination!  An awesome massage at my friend's house too, except that it was very exhausting just being out in the day and driving, etc.  At my friend's house I ate a nectarine and drank water until dinner.  On the way home I stopped at Whole Foods market and ordered the only vegetable juice that could be verified "guaranteed" organic produce of carrots, parsley and kale.

Then I stopped at my daughter's house to drop something off and by the time I got home I was so hungry that I intuitively knew that it was time for me to break the fast.  One of those times, where in spite of discipline, I knew that it was time to start my raw food diet.  I also had previous business plans the next day that kept reminding me to end the fast.

I will continue the liver detox for another 1 or 2 days more, and instead of juicing I plan on eating solid food and modify the detox to raw foods.

For dinner I ate plain (no dressing) Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber.  About 2 hours later I was so hungry again, I repeated the same meal only this time I added a no-oil sesame seed dressing.

It felt good to take a hot shower and go to sleep early.
