I have had all kinds of mental health issues ever since I was 19. Depression, severe anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, psychosis, and I've done a lot of self medicating with alcohol at times. My family relationships which were loving and strong in childhood have since been very up and down with lots of arguments and shouting for years and years which has only made my confidence and self esteem worse. I have become very isolated, I get anxious in public places, I believe I look weird or act weird and people are staring at me. I always see people looking at me like I'm strange/weird. I have really bad anxiety and confidence/assertiveness issues in the work environment. I've tried medications and a lot of different natural medicine and lifestyle treatment.
I could go on and on, we all have our problems. I want to share with everyone something that I have to be an amazing antidote to all of the above. Fasting, no food or drink is an amazing treatment for my mental health and emotional issues. It's free and good for your physical health.
You have to be sensible, don't fast to a level that is unhealthy; but say for example, fasting from sunrise to sunset just as Muslims do in the holy month of Ramadan would be a good guide. It's also worth checking with your GP if it's suitable for you.
I've found it is really healing and can help you lose weight and clear your thinking, bring about emotions you forgot you had and it's incredible for anxiety.
