    Yeah, I've never tried it on purpose cause of it making me dizzier, but I've seen quite a few papers quoting how fasting can help with inflammation. Could possibly try on it my next relapse and see what happens!

    I had good results from 3 day water fast last year: reduction in need for anti-inflammatories and antioxidants. But I also think it's rough on my adrenals. Another article about this:

    I have LPR, which is GERD without heartburn. When I do a 3-day water fast, all symptoms disappear on the first day, but come right back when I eat. I feel pretty fabulous.
