I have just returned from the North of Thailand and a ten-day Detox retreat using primarily coconut water as the fasting medium.
Fasting in a location where there is an abundance of the chosen fruit for the Fast makes perfect sense. My personal preference is an Orange Juice fast. However, young green coconuts are readily available all year round in tropical regions such as Thailand. Aside from coconuts being found in great abundance everywhere in the region, there are a host of reasons for choosing to use coconut water for the Fast.
The very act of stopping one’s usual dietary practices in favor of a more restricted form of daily practice is a Fast unto itself. Choosing a simple, fresh fruit juice enables a deeper level of Fasting and Cleanse that is possible. Coconut water is deeply cleansing whilst still being somewhat nutritious thus offering a safe method of Fasting. Particular useful for those who have more severe conditions and finding it tricky Fasting on conventional methods. Aside from coconut water being refreshing yet not overly sweet, it is loaded with B-complex vitamins and trace minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and manganese.
As the Medical Medium says, “Coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known. It’s a natural isotonic beverage with the same level of electrolytic balance that we have in our blood. In our body, plasma is what makes up 55% of human blood, and coconut water is identical to human plasma, thus making it a universal donor.”
An interesting piece of trivia going back seventy years gives us a historical perspective on the use of coconut water in wartime conditions.….. During World War II, in the Pacific between 1941-1945, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water for blood transfusions to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers.
In a world today where most people are nutritionally depleted, coconut water makes for an excellent means to safely Fast for health benefits whilst resetting their system. Coconut water has also been shown to have significant anti-cancer, anti-thrombotic, and anti-aging benefits due to its high cytokinin content.
Coconut water is low in calories and is an excellent weight loss drink. It also has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level. As we got to see by means of daily ph testing strips, coconut water has been shown to balance pH levels, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones.
Coconut water is highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation. It is also vitally beneficial for those who are suffering from chronic issues such as COPD, fibromyalgia, migraines, sinusitis, asthma, cardiomyopathy, chron’s disease, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, arthritis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome to name but a few.
Upon arrival, our Fasting guests got to submit a blood sample at the start of the Fast and again at the end of the Fast. The blood sample made use of the Dark Field Microscopic view of the blood down to the red blood cell level. An enormous amount of valuable knowledge can be gleaned about the person’s condition, and their progress tracked over the duration of the Fast. The red blood cells’ ability to hold and transport oxygen can be clearly seen under these slides. The final image taken at the end of the Fast is a testament to the restorative power of the bloodstream at work when the daily onslaught of food is replaced by a liquid such as a coconut water. In as little as 7-10 days, profound change is observed. Red blood cells have been cleaned up, separated, allowing for more oxygen uptake, anti-oxidative stress damage is visibly reduced, debris in the fluid is cleaned up, all of which had the effect of inspiring our attendees to continue their Fast beyond the initial seven days.
The little known secret to Fasting that eludes many people is that the bowel must move every single day of the fast. Failure to do so implies that waste being recirculated back into the system, which is counterproductive to the Fast. Some use enemas or colonics, which I consider to be invasive. We achieve this by consuming one Stomach and Bowel formula at a calculated interval based upon the person’s unique system and response to the plant extract.
Another aspect that sets this retreat apart from all others is that participants get the opportunity to experience both Basic and Advanced parasite cleanses. A few participants got to share and display their dislodged specimens proudly. There is nothing so powerful as seeing your own efforts release deeply held parasites that only serve to consider you as lunch, competing for nutrients whilst even devouring you from within.
Our group was treated to an accomplished Tibetan Energy Healer joining us. Incorporating energy healing into a Fasting regime takes the Fast to uncharted new levels. Our Healer was invited to provide additional energy and emotional balance/healing aspects to those who desired such services. Frequently the Fast clears away the proverbial topsoil around a root structure of a weed, serving to reveal the bare emotional weeds and their roots of someone’s emotional vulnerability.
The location we chose for the retreat was home to a long-standing multi-century Qigong tradition. Qigong has been used in China for thousands of years to cultivate longevity by working with the breath, the mind, and the body. Taoist principles ascertain there is no hierarchy, only nature. Qigong today is even used in some hospitals in China as a stand-alone treatment modality. Daily lessons were offered to our guests as part of the package.
Our unique Thai venue is also home to a unique and deeply transformative abdominal type of massage. This signature massage is the energetic equivalent of what our Intestinal herbal Bulldozer or the Dr. Morse Stomach and Bowel formula does within the bowel on a physical level. Thai massage also helped to bring the whole body balance to the system over the ten-day duration.
This retreat again proved to be a powerful means to experience the transformative magic of the body’s innate self-healing ability once we get out of our own way. The efforts were made even more potent by doing a 30-day pre-cleanse prior to the Fast, and then once the Fast was commenced including parasite cleanses, signature massages, energy healing, daily qigong. Dark Field Imaging again proved useful by allowing each participant to calibrate to their starting point and then their progress.
Such a simple process with far reaching results. The method is time less and available to all. Those old Fasting Doctors from the late 1800’s were right after all.
