does anybody else have a really hard time fasting…. is there anything to do to make it easier by yom kippur I really cant fast
check out this thread http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/fasting
Drink drinks with electrolytes like Gatorade before the fast. that will help
Speak to you Dr. and Rav. I know people who have a very hard time fasting, who practically lie in bed the whole day.
Almonds or almond butter works well. Real licorice is also good (it’s one of the main ingredients in the fasting tablets), you can get drops at a health food store.
has anybody heard of easyfasts.com…. they sell some sort of 100% natural fasting supplement pills. A few people just told me about it and swear by it that it works. One said they used to not be able to fast but now they take it and they are fine. Is this a common thing….is it famous and accepted?
I have never heard of it. My instinct is to be wary. Fasting is difficult (for a reason) and it’s going to be difficult no matter what you do.
Is there any issur in setting up a saline and glucose drip? You wouldn’t be dehydrated or weak at all.
That would probably be allowed, & would be a good workaround for those who get physically ill from fasting.
my wife taaynas that kalei tzom does work. its alot of natural ichy sounding stuff.
