Hi folks, i have a question and it would be really great if you could help me, i am currently doing a water only fast again, i am on day 12 and will go 40 days.( its my 4th longer fast) At the moment i am in croatia so i dont have my water distiller with me nor do i have a waterfiltration system here as i do at home, its the first time actually that i am doing a waterfast on natural glasbotteled springwater (its called jana from the holy jana spring in croatia) its the best water i could get here, i also drank a few times another glasbotteled water which is also natural springwater from slovenia its called donat, its naturally carbonated and both waters have minerals in them (i put a link of the waters below so you can check out the mineral content) so i would like to know if this might be a problem when waterfasting or interfere with the healing process since both have mineral content, i feel good on the fast and i somehow i feel that the donat water helps me to stay on track and also it helps me to go to the toilet and cleaning out my intestines- also i really dont have much of a choice, just these two waters because they are the best i can get here, tapwater is not a choice because theres a chance its contaminated with chlorine and other nasty stuff. Please help i need advice. Thanks a lot in advance

Please do not have any concerns at all Amaricella, the minerals in these waters are all inorganic, which means that your body will not interpret them as nutrients. Personally I use and supply Dolomitic water during most fasts and use distilled/de-ionized more for variety and rarely on medical grounds.

The benefit of the fast goes way beyond the quality of the water and worrying about it will do a lot more harm than good. Indeed the worrying may cause malfunctions of the autonomous nervous system and that is much, much more damaging than any amount of mineral salts in the water.

Enjoy your fast but please don't chase numbers... if you feel the fast is completed even long before reaching 40 days, then so be it.

thank you very much for your fast response :)
i do understand that worrying would do more harm then good so i will stop worrying and drink what i have :)
but would the body then have to use more energy to get rid of the inorganic minerals ?
and i just have another question which might be already answered with your point of organic/inorganic minerals
but i am asking still because i am not sure,
so would it be contraproductive to use some squeezed lemon juice in the spring water or would it interfer with the fasting benefits due to organic minerals in the lemon, so would the body recognize the lemonjuice as food?

thank you very much again

Dear Amancella, all minerals is BY DEFINITION inorganic.

Any juice will tell your brain that you are eating.. indeed any TASTE would do the same. Then your brain tries to regulate your body as if it is eating but on cellular level there is no external energy supply... so please, a fast should always exclude any form of taste.
