The Miracle of Fasting - Natural Hygiene Part 2
"Fasting----the abstention, entirely or in part, and for longer or shorter periods of time, from food and drink or from food alone" - Dr Herbert M Shelton. D.P., N.D., D.C., D.N.T., D.N.Sc., D.N.Ph., D.N. Litt., Ph. D., D. Orthp.
by Chris Beckett
For most of human history, fasting has been practiced for therapeutic-healing and spiritual enlightenment, and our current understanding of human physiology has confirmed the powerful healing effects of this ancient remedy par excellence.
Fasting is such a powerful and therapeutic process it can help almost anyone recover from very mild to very severe and even life-threatening health conditions. Some of the most common ones are high blood pressure, asthma, allergies, chronic headaches, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), irritable bowel syndrome, adult onset diabetes, heart disease, degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, eczema, acne, uterine fibroids, benign tumors, and systemic lupus erythematosus, and in my own case Leukemia.
Fasting actually provides a period of concentrated physiological rest during which time the body can devote its self-healing mechanisms to repairing and strengthening damaged organs. The process of fasting also allows the body to cleanse cells of accumulated metabolic toxins and waste products. I cannot do better than quote Dr Shelton who wrote…..” Life is a master drama of nutrition and drainage under the control of the nervous system. If nerve or life-energy is abundant, the various organs of the body are well supplied and they function with due efficiency; digestion is good, respiration is normal, circulation is maintained at a high level, secretion and excretion are adequate. As a result, the cells are nourished, the fluids are kept sweet and clean and we have health in superabundance. However, if our nervous batteries have been permitted to run down, if our nerve or life-energy is low, ALL the functions of the body are correspondingly lowered. Digestion is then poor, secretion and excretion lag, circulation is below par, respiration is not efficient. The fluids and tissues of the body become sour and we have impaired health”
Fasting restores that lost life energy, and cleanses the body of waste products that have been allowed to accumulate over the years, through improper living habits and faulty diet. Fasting also gives the digestive tract time to completely rest and strengthen its intestinal lining. A healthy intestinal lining is necessary for preventing leakage of incompletely digested proteins into the bloodstream, which then offers protection from autoimmune conditions. A healthy digestive tract also helps to protect the blood and inner organs against the majority of environmental and metabolic toxins.
Fasting though is NOT Starving
"WANT OF APPETITE is not always a morbid symptom, nor even a sign of imperfect digestion. Nature may have found it necessary to muster all the energies of our system for some special purpose, momentarily of paramount importance. Organic changes and repairs, teething, pleuritic eruptions, and the external elimination of bad humors (boils, etc.), are often attended with a temporary suspension of the alimentary process. As a rule, it is always the safest plan to give Nature her own way." - FELIX L. OSWALD MD.
Fasting then is a nutritional state whereby we live on our own ample food reserves through a process known as “Autolysis” until these are depleted. This can take many weeks if not a few months. Starvation begins when this process ends, and we then begin to consume ourselves and feed on our internal organs for nourishment. Fasting means life……Starvation means death.
