Fasting Day 2
Water fasting is easier if you have fasted before. First timer hang in there!!!

It is great to get rid of all that is clogging the lower channels. It is induced diarrhea which helps clear any digestive issues and clears left over crap in you colon and small intestine.
Usually strong purgatives are used, I personally use castro oil as other herbal purgatives tends to suck in water from intestines it is not super healthy to dry out internal organs. By evening depending on how your body is going to react you should be able to feel clear, energetic and lightness over all.
Just like Vamana, Purgation therapy has three stages, stage one bowl movement tends to be with a lot of gassiness. Bowl movements are random and may be with burning sensation or not depending on what dosha was excess and how you clear them.
Keep hydrating, this is where I add strawberries and cucumber, coconut water. hang in there for one more day. Your tongue may feel really thick and bad breath. Shower, keep it short so it is not exhausting. Rest!!!
