Benefits of Fasting

19 Profound Benefits Obtained from Fasting.

Cause of Dis-Ease

Illness has many different names, but despite these many different names all have the same root cause. Too much tissue acid and waste within the body. It is this tissue residue and its acculations that determines sickness or health.

Looking to nature as a guideline. Every single animal in God’s creation when facing illness stops eating and allows the miraculous healing ability wired into its genetic make up, to activate and restore health and vitality. Each and every one of us has this ability too. Below is a scientificly proven list of benefits experienced during the Fast.

In conducting the Fast, one must always have in mind the objectives. The purpose of this fast is not to lose weight, or to increase spiritual enlightenment or to feel better immediately, for those who fast often feel worse at various periods during it.

The purpose of the Fast is to balance body chemistry, to cleanse the body from abnormal and harmful congestions and acids,  thus allowing certain physical issues and diseases to be resolved by the natural intelligence and healing ability of the body.

By a Pro-Longed Fast we mean a Fast longer than 5 days in duration. The bodies intelligence realizes that something has changed when feeding stops and goes from a digestion and assimilation mode to a “house cleaning” mode

Metabolism shifts from using glucose as a major source of energy to primarily oxidation of fatty acids and ketone bodies as energy.  With this in mind we find the following are just some of the Major Benefits of Fasting.

Benefits Obtained from Fasting

  1. There is a significant freeing up of vital force within the body that is no longer preoccupied with digestion, and is now redirected to go elsewhere and assist with restoration and rebuilding of the body.
  2. There is a significant cleaning up and repair of the body that begins to happen at the cellular level, usually from the 3rd day onwards.
  3. The Lymphatic system clears its backlog of acid cellular waste as a result of food is not ingested. The Lymph is the bodies sewer system. The lymph’s purpose is to transport cellular waste from the cells out of the body. 99 Percent of our health problems arise when the lymph/sewer that is blocked, congested or backed up. Fasting allows this congestion to clear.
  4. Deeply held acidic cellular waste is removed from the cell.
  5. Several days into the fast, usually around day 4 or 5 there is a dramatic increase in autophagy and apoptosis followed by a massive boost in stem cell production. (Autophagy clears away damaged cells to use for energy, while apoptosis is a genetic program that causes damaged cells to self-destruct.)
  6. Autophagy and apoptosis prevent damaged cells from becoming cancer cells.
  7. Damaged cells get cleared away, these damaged cells are less likely to become senescent, which is what can happen when too much damage accumulates. A senescent cell is technically a living cell but it is not functioning in a way that is consistent with maintaining the overall health of an organ, senescent cells can accelerate the aging of nearby cells and promote tumor growth by secreting pro-inflammatory molecules along with other factors. Senescent cells are detrimental to the body and accelerate the aging process. These cells increase as we age, occurring everywhere from our livers to our hearts to our brains.). Fasting cleans these senescent cells up, allowing new cells to be generated.
  1. Prolonged fasting has a very robust effect on increasing stem cell numbers. The regenerative power of tissues and organs declines with age. It is the stem cells that provide this regenerative power and because stem cell numbers decline with age so does organ function which means anything that can counter that is a win!
  2. Fasting causes cells to clear away damaged mitochondria and recycles their defective components for energy, followed by a generation of new mitochondria. Since mitochondria accumulate damage with age (just as cells do) thus accelerating the aging process.
  3. New Healthy mitochondria is generated to replace the damaged ones.
  4. Fasting increases the levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (or NAD). NAD levels always increase during a fasted state and decrease during the fed state (no matter what food type). NAD is an important cofactor for many metabolic enzymes, which just means you need it for these enzymes to work properly. (Your mitochondria need NAD to produce energy from glucose or fatty acids. Any time there is chronic inflammation or DNA damage occurring, this sucks up the NAD and so the mitochondria suffer. NAD levels decrease in multiple tissues with aging.)
  5. Fasting activates many repair processes including repair of damaged DNA, damaged cells, damaged mitochondria, and damaged proteins.
  6. You must be in a fasted state to repair damaged cells, which is why most repair processes occur during sleep because that is when most people are in a fasted state. (Good motivation not to eat after sunset, and not eat again until late morning).
  7. Fasting improves blood sugar, insulin sensitivity, blood lipids, improves inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), and improves adiponectin, leptin, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor in humans.
  8. Prolonged fasts see entire organ systems experiencing renewal when food is re-introduced.
  9. Fasting contributes to and opens a doorway to a whole different level of cellular clean-up that can occur, which is above and beyond what we get in shorter fasts.
  10. Fasting opens a doorway to deeper levels of parasite cleansing possible, than during normal daily eating regimes.
  11. Those who have weight to loose, often find that they loose up to 2 pounds of weight per day. (15-20 pounds over a 10 day fast)
  12. High blood pressure usually drops during a fast, whereas low blood pressure often increases to normal levels.

Benefits of Fasting

 

Darkfield Blood Analysis: Before the fast (top pic) and after ten days (bottom). Note in the bottom pic the red blood cells evenly spaced, shaped and less clumped with increased surface area. Less debris between in the spaces between cells. Affectivity of the red blood cells increased five fold.

In summary, the approach we’re taking is the result of many years of trial and error taking the best concepts from various locations around the world and embodying them into one exceptionally safe and effective yet gentle fasting/detox experience.

People report not only a restoration of physical well being but also a renewed inspiration, and connection to their Spiritual Source. The source of digestive issues and many other seemingly unrelated health issues are often addressed at their cause.

 

The Origins of The Art of Detox approach to Fasting

Our method of fasting is based upon the old “original” orange juice method of fasting which used one pint of strained orange juice per day, along with the use of water as needed and each evening a cool 85 degree enema and lasted 14 days in a clinic.

Our method was originally created by a Medical Doctor who used this approach to save his own life. He chose to use an orange juice Fast to resolve a heart condition caused by diet abuse. To make matters worse, he had been born to a mother who had a bad heart and had also watched his father, mother and brothers all die of heart failure.

His method was to take 1 orange per hour and fresh juice it into an 8 ounce glass and then fill the glass with water. He did this each hour for 8 hours per day and did 21 days. He made no mention of enema or herbal use. He wrote a book about his epxeirence 20 some years later and explained he never needed to fast ever again, because he chose to eat correctly. In our own experience, we have found coconut water to be an equally effective medium to use for the Fast when Orange juice is out of season or unavailable due to the location.

Over the years by trial and error, and thanks to my ability to enjoy unlimited world wide travel for the last 20 years, standing on the shoulders of many great people who have gone before us, I have learnt to refine the technique. Over two decades my travels took us from rural parts of Brazil investigating and experiencing Faith Healers, Ive singled out of the beaten track Herbalists serving Armish communities who taught me about North American Herbsand the great parasite plague afflicting the modern world and how to mitigate it, Ive travelled to the Amazon rainforest and into the high Andes seeking out and experiencing Sacred Plant based approaches to health and healing, my travels have taken me to remote parts of South East Asia looking to experience a unique one of its kind Abdominal massage founded by a Taoist master.

Along the way I have noticed where people and their lands cherish natural health.  Ive found small group of people who were vibrantly happy internally,  All the time putting the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of Human Health and Vibrancy together, always learning always refining.

You can get to experience the best of the best of this 20 years journey over a ten day  Detox trip in Thailand.
