Complications at the exit from medical starvation

When you leave fasting, various complications are possible. Most often they occur because of improper preparation for starvation, as well as because of inability to control their appetite during the release. The more you will have your own experience, the less you will have unpleasant symptoms when you exit hunger.

1. Overeating in the first days after fasting.

If, nevertheless, this happened after a fairly long period of fasting and you "filled" your stomach, you must induce vomiting and rinse the stomach. Then resume the output as usual.

If you overeat at a later date, starve one day, then continue to exit the desired products.

2. Edema, retention of urine.

Quite a common complication. This is due to the fact that during fasting, the body consumes potassium and the intake of salty food in the early stages of recovery, promotes the accumulation of sodium by cells and, as a result, water. Although it can also be noted with the correct exit from fasting after long periods and in beginners. Usually, this is manifested by rapid weight gain. At the same time, the amount of urine decreases, and swelling of the face and swelling of the legs may appear. If such symptoms appear, salty foods and foods containing them should be excluded, an enema should be given. Potassium preparations help very well - panangin or asparcam, which should be taken 1 tablet 2-3 times a day in tech. 2-5 days. These preparations contain magnesium and potassium, which are absolutely safe. The sauna helps a lot - with sweat, excess sodium and water are released. /to read - Basically the causes of edema at the exit from fasting/

3. Constipation.

Quite often it occurs, especially for beginners. If there is no independent chair more than 2-3 days, an enema should be made. For beginners, it is recommended in any case to make an enema on the second and third day of getting out of starvation, which would get rid of the uneaten food remnants and improve your health.

4. Flatulence, swelling of the intestine.

The main reason is the early onset of eating heavy food, insufficient chewing, a large amount of food eaten, insufficient bowel cleansing during fasting and before fasting. A discreet exit from fasting, enemas, early consumption of garlic, sufficient physical activity at the exit (after 3-4 days) is recommended. In addition, these symptoms are very often noted during fasting in winter and spring. Rehabilitation nutrition only with plant foods during this period does not correspond to the season and "cools" the body. To avoid this, you should use stewed vegetables, increase the proportion of cereals, use spices, vegetable and butter / not earlier than the 3rd day /. Remember - in winter, the body needs a thicker, "warm food", and in the summer in autumn it is quite possible to live on vegetables for a long time.

5. Weakness, dizziness, fainting.

Happen in the first 3-5 days out of starvation. Associated with the early expansion of the motor regime. With an apparent surge of energy, one can not calculate their physical capabilities, which leads to attacks of weakness, dizziness, even to fainting states. For prophylaxis, when exiting, it is necessary to observe a more strict regimen than with fasting itself. More rest, do not take long walks, do not perform heavy physical work, do not overwork. And only those who are hungry with experience, well versed in the characteristics of their body, can lead a fairly active lifestyle. After all, the motor loads at the exit, contribute to the fastest switching of the body to normal nutrition.

6. "Crunch" in the joints.

It can be observed in the first week of fasting most often in thin people. When it appears, a gradual expansion of the diet, adding vegetable oil, ghee, oatmeal, cereals to food, use lubrication and body massage with olive oil / according to Malakhov /.

7. An exacerbation of the underlying disease.

If during the fasting you have started exacerbation of some disease, it is desirable to continue fasting until the symptoms disappear. If this is not possible, symptoms can persist even when exiting. In this case, it is necessary to make an exit according to the usual scheme, and not to hurry with the early application of heavy food. Homeopathic remedies can be used for treatment. After a week of withdrawal, while preserving the symptoms of the disease, careful use of medications is possible.

In order to avoid all these troubles, begin to master the practice of fasting gradually: first, learn to observe proper nutrition when leaving one-day fasting, three-day fasting, then fasting until the crisis / 7-10 days / and only then start long-term fasting. After all, it is the mistakes made when coming out of prolonged starvation that can be dangerous to your life. So, if you suddenly overeat in the first days of exiting from 7-10 days of fasting, nothing dangerous will happen to you, but such incontinence during exiting a prolonged fast can be dangerous for your life! Therefore, if you decide to practice fasting on your own, treat this with attention and caution. Master the method gradually, study literature, the experience of others and, most importantly, observe yourself. If after short-term fasting you start to feel "hungry" and you cannot control your behavior, in no case do not undertake long-term fasting yourself.
