A Natural Healing Force Within Each One of Us.
Hippocrates - "Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just
have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us
is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our
medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed
your sickness." Hippocrates, Greek physician (460 BC - 377 BC)
Dr. Herbert Shelton MD - "It is estimated that fasting for the alleviation of human
suffering has been practiced uninterruptedly for 10,000 years. No doubt it has
been employed from the time man first began to get sick. Fasting was part of
the methods of healing practiced in the Ancient Asculapian Temples of Toscurd
Guido, 1300 years before the time of Jesus. Hippocrates, the mythical Greek
"Father of Physic," seems to have prescribed total abstinence from food while
a "disease" was on the increase, and especially at the critical period, and
a spare diet on other occasions. Tertullian has left us a treatise on fasting
written about 200 A.D. Plutarch said: "Instead of using medicine rather fast
a day." Avicenna, the great Arab physician often prescribed fasting for three weeks or more."
Benjamin Franklin - "The best of all medicines are rest
Patricia Bragg Ph.D.- "Proven throughout history for physical,
mental and spiritual rejuvenation, fasting promotes cleansing and healing; helps
normalize weight, blood pressure, cholesterol; rebuilds the immune system; and
helps reverse the aging process. If we are to get these poisons out of our bodies
we must fast. By fasting we give our bodies a physiological rest. This rest
builds Vital Force. The more Vital Force we have, the more toxins are going
to be eliminated from the body to help keep it clean, pure and healthy."
Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process
Evart Loomis M.D.
Fasting is the world's most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers
a truly wondrous cleansing process that
reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body. Within 24 hours of
curtailing food intake, enzymes stop entering the stomach and travel instead
into the intestines and into the bloodstream, where they circulate and gobble
up all sorts of waste matter, including dead and damaged cells, unwelcome microbes,
metabolic wastes, and pollutants. All organs and glands get a much-needed and
well-deserved rest, during which their tissues are purified and rejuvenated
and their functions balanced and regulated. The entire alimentary canal is swept
clean. By rebuilding immunity, health is naturally restored and disease disappears.
If health and immunity are thereafter conscientiously maintained, the individual
is no longer vulnerable to disease and dieting become unnecessary. Surely one of the
most overlooked and yet most valuable modes of healing that will be rediscovered
in the future of the new medicine is the fast. This is because of the increasing
interest in looking to oneself for healing powers. For the fast is an inward process
and cannot be entered upon only from an outer approach with any expectation of
a lasting benefit. The person must invariably be involved with the overall results.
This therapeutic encounter is in direct contrast to the usual non-involvement in
the physician-directed, disease-oriented medical practice of today.
Fasting for health in The Animal Kingdom
Animals will instinctively
go without food, fasting when overcome with sickness or serious injury. "A sick animal
retires to a secluded place and fasts until their body is restored
to mormal. During the fast it partakes only of water and the medicinal herbs
which inherited intelligence teaches it instinctively to seek"
Juliette de Bairacli Levy
William Pollak D.V.M. on fasting: "Many experts on
canine nutrition recommend occasional fasting, such as one day without solid
food per week or month, to simulate the natural conditions in which these animals
evolved. Fasting gives the digestive organs an opportunity to rest and helps
the body repair itself. In the wild, predators alternate between gorging themselves
and going for one or several days without food, so a once-a-week or once-a-month
fast is both beneficial and easy for most dogs to adjust to."
Bill Winter DVM - "To this day I do not believe that I have
ever discovered a healing technique quite as powerful. I have recommended fasting for
10,000 to 20,000 animals and have seen true miracles over these years of practice."
marvelous book, "Wild Health: How Animals Keep Themselves Well and What
We Can Learn From Them", Cindy
Engles, Ph.D. documents how injured and sick animals retreat in an isolated
place to rest and fast until healed. When they get sick or injured they will find a safe place
to hide, usually near a water source, and do nothing but rest, sleep and drink water.
To put it another way, they fast and give their body a chance to heal and repair itself.
"Often the first indication of sickness is that an animal goes off its food
- an observation that has led many traditional herbalists to conclude that fasting
is a natural and beneficial response to sickness... This lack of appetite can
be an effective way of speeding recovery. Bacteria need iron, and the body makes
many adjustments to reduce the availability of iron during an infection.
an animal keeps eating, any iron in its food also feeds the pathogens, so force-feeding
a sick animal or patient can be counterproductive. Fever reduces appetite, so
if a fever is artificially suppressed with drugs and appetite returns, not only
do we lower temperature but the increased iron intake can keep the infection
going longer. The traditional dictum 'Starve a fever' is medically sound advice."
Cindy Engel Ph.D.
"We are justified in studying every phenomenon which may throw
light upon the subject and thus enable us to better apply the fast in our
dealings with the sick. The fasting habits of man and animals are all
legitimate objects of study. Not alone the fasting practices of sick animals
, but fasting in healthy animals, whether voluntary or enforced, will aid us
in more clearly understanding this subject. Particularly will such a study
aid us in overcoming our cultivated fear of fasting. Hence
the following studies. " Herbert
Juice Fasting is a Powerful Healing Therapy
"When you don't feel well, stop eating and go to juices." The first thing
an animal does when it is sick is stop eating. They fast themselves.
the first thing we need to do when we don't feel well is: stop food. There are
a lot of reasons for that. Food takes a tremendous amount of energy to digest--and
that's blood and energy. Our digestive system, basically the muscles and the
tissues, fill with blood. When you stop eating, your digestive system rests,
and all that blood and energy can be put somewhere else to heal you.

Toxaemia and Internal Cleansing
Dr. Mercola - "Every act of every cell in the body produces waste. This waste
is poisonous, it is incompatible with the life of the cell..." "The cells throw
their waste into the lymph that carries it back to the blood. The blood takes
the waste to the excretory organs mentioned above for elimination." "Normal
elimination keeps the blood and lymph clean. Toxaemia is hence
the aftermath of Enervation. Enervation in brief is the sum total of all our
expenditures of nerve energy involved in our day to day living. When the sum
of our daily expenditure is greater than we can or than we do recuperate daily,
we become enervated. When an enervated individual is saturated with toxins,
any additional enervating influence that puts an added check to elimination
will cause the toxaemia to be pushed above the point of toleration,
and will precipitate a crisis, a process of compensatory elimination through
channels whose main work is not elimination, e.g., en mucous membranes (colds,
catarrh, inflammation and skin eruptions)."
What is Toxemia?
self-generated poisoning is what we call Toxaemia."
"Natural Hygienists know the cause and they also know how to remove it. Fasting
will enable the body to rid itself of toxins and hygienic living will prevent
their recurrence." - Doctor Keki Sidhwa
"There is really only one disease of the body. It is called Toxemia. Many
doctors of natural hygiene have proven this in their work, but common knowledge
of the way the body works, along with common sense, will also support this statement.
In his book "Toxemia Explained" Dr. John Tilden explains the definition of Toxemia
as natures effort to eliminate toxins from the blood."
The science of Natural Hygiene is about enhancing physical, emotional and
mental well-being through education. It provides us with a simple, straightforward
system for regaining and maintaining superb human health and beauty. Hygiene
is personally empowering and liberating. It teaches independence and rational
action. It banishes fear and ignorance regarding human health and how to keep
it. Ultimately it is about freedom.
The Importance of a Clean, Healthy GI Tract
factors linked to modern civilization threaten your internal health, including
unsafe vaccinations, environmental toxins, pollutants, the overuse of antibiotics
(all the foods they contaminate), and even chlorinated and fluoridated water.
Add to the list the burgeoning consumption of alcohol and drugs (prescription
and recreation) plus poor diets, and you have only a few of the modern-day enemies
endangering your gastrointestinal health!
Autointoxication or "self-poisoning" from the bowel
was a recognized cause of disease in the early 1900s. Dr. H. H. Boeker stated
in 1928, "It is now universally conceded that autointoxication is the underlying
cause of an exceptionally large group of symptom complexes."9 Recent research
seems to support these earlier conclusions about intestinal toxemia. Virtually
every state of health is affected by the GI tract. In addition to processing
nutrients as the principal pathway of the digestive system, the gastrointestinal
tract (GI tract.) is a prominent part of the
providing various levels of defense against pathogenic microorganisms and potentially
toxic substances throughout the path of digestion. If these waste products are
not regularly eliminated, they begin to poison the body and blood. Unchecked,
this autointoxication may ultimately lead to disease and even death.
Dr. H. H. Boeker believed that over 90 percent of diseases are caused or
complicated by toxins created in the intestinal tract by unhealthy
foods that are not properly eliminated." Autointoxication occurs when,
due to poor elimination, certain toxins escape from the bowel into the blood
stream and poison the body, causing a silent form of self-poisoning.
Sixty to 80 percent of the lymphatic system is in your small intestine.
Called the gut-associated
lymphoid tissue (GALT),
it is almost synonymous with the term immune system. The gigantic task of your
GALT is to discriminate between nutritious components and possible antigens
passing through your bowel.
that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe,
the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic
waste produced inside us. Toxins build up in the body faster than they can be
removed, contributing to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases.

The Ancient Path of Cleansing: The History of Colonic Hydrotherapy
Colon Hydrotherapy (enema) is a gentle internal massage and bath using warm,
purified water that can help to eliminate stored fecal matter, gas, mucus and
toxic substances from the colon. Death begins in the colon.
The history of Colon Hydrotherapy reaches far into the past. Reports about enemas
were found on ancient Egyptian papers dating to 1500 B.C. The Chinese Medicine
used Colon Hydrotherapy even earlier than that. Cleaning the colon also plays
an important role in Ayurvedic medicine. Until the beginning of the 20th century
Colon Hydrotherapy was a well-known therapy. Today's sophisticated technology
promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.
The historians tell us that the practice colon hydrotherapy, or in its more
basic form, the enema, was passed down from the Gods to the Egyptians. There
are numerous reports of the frequent use of the enema by
the Egyptians, with all of them referencing a papyrus of the 14th century B.C.,
that is stored in the Royal Museum of Berlin.
of the enema was not limited just to Egyptians. Information on the use of enemas
was recorded on the cuneiform inscriptions on Babylonian and Assyruan tablets,
as early as 600 B.C., and there are references recorded in Hindu medical texts
such as the Susruta Smhita, the work of Susruta, the father of Hindu surgery.
Susruta describes the use of "syringes and bougies as well as a rectal speculum."
From the eleventh century to the fifteenth century, the early enema syringe
was still relatively unknown and was not available to the masses. The preferred
and most readily available apparatus remained a tube made of bone, reed or metal
connected to a sleeve or animal bladder called the "clyster purse". The bag
was emptied by squeezing it between the two hands. Dr. Russell reports that
in Spain, the method was called "playing the bagpipes". During the middle ages,
information on the enema continued to grow and the use of the enema became the
popular vogue of the wealthy and even reached to the highest levels of the royalty.
With this growth in popularity, the evolution of the apparatus had to follow.
Dr. Herbert M. Shelton MD - "The colon has been accused of being lazy; it has
been claimed to be superfluous and its removal advocated; it has been blamed
as the source of almost all the so-called diseases with which man suffers. As
a consequence of this, it has been goaded and pricked with laxatives, cathartics,
and purges, cut with knives, filled by injection, with plain water, soapsuds,
molasses, oils,and other substances to force it to act. It has been filled from
above withstand, wheat bran, rough, bulky vegetables, psyllium seed, agar-agar,
mineral oil, olive oil, etc. All of these and many more agents have been employed
to force the colon to empty itself. They have been employed by those who cannot
trust the functions of life to the laws and forces of life, but who feel that
they must constantly interfere with the functions of life if life is to continue.
They either irritate the bowels and cause them to act vigorously to eject the
source of irritation, or fill them so full of bulk that they are forced to "move"
to make room for the succeeding load of bulk. This plan works on the same principle
as that of the hay bailer. One bail of hay is forced out by the one that comes
after. It is a plan of remedying sluggish bowels by giving them more work to perform."
What Goes In Must Come Out
By: Marge Hartwig, Master Herbalist
Modern lifestyle has taken its toll on our digestive and elimination organs.
Refined, processed, low fiber foods and animal fats, a lack of exercise and
an ever increasing level of stress have all contributed to our current gastro-intestinal
health crisis. According to the latest edition of The Merck Manual, the medical
industry's standard text for dianosis and treatment of disease, almost 1/2 of
American adults over 50 have herniated pockets in their bowels which is called
Diverticulosis. Due to sluggish bowel movements, these "bowel pockets" fill
with old fecal material which can be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream. This
can infect the entire body causing all types of toxic reactions.
A sluggish bowel can retain pounds of old, toxic and poisonous fecal matter.
Many times the real cause behind sickness and disease is this retention and
reabsorption of these toxic wastes. Is it any wonder that in 1992 the most common
cancer among men and women in the United States was Colon-Rectal? What is the
normal frequency of bowel movement in a healthy person? There has been a great
misconception among the public and most medical professionals on just what is
considered normal. For years, doctors have thought that once a day to, maybe
once a week was perfectly normal. Yet a study of more primitive people and people
living in the third world of nations tell us quite a different story. They eliminate
within 20 to 30 minutes following each meal. We believe "normal" is eliminating
once for every meal you eat, and we also find that we don't feel very good if
Through the careful buying of organically produced veggies, avoiding foods
that contain perservatives and reducing your consumption of animal foods, you
can make a major change in your body's health. But if you don't clean out this
excessive waste build up, you've only done half the job and maybe even the wrong
half. The first step in anyones health program is to stimulate, clean, and tone
all the elimination organs, and the bowel is the best place to begin. You feel
better and you look at the life better. It's easier to tollerate life's little
problems and therefore you simply get along with your neighbors better. Maybe
we could have a better world just by giving all the bad guys a colonic?
Natural Approach to Constipation - Hydrotherapy and Enema
"One of my more significant cases was Tommy, an eight-year-old boy
with the most awful constipation anyone could imagine," says former general
surgeon and emergency medicine specialist Paul Flashner, MD, of Wellesley, Massachusetts.
Observing their superior results for his patients,
Dr. Flashner has more recently adapted his treatment techniques almost completely
to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Most definitely, he has incorporated
colon hydrotherapy as a regular CAM technique.
“Tommy’s constipation was really bad. He never had a bowel movement
for a week at a time. Recognizing the dangers of physiological toxicity, his
parents took their son for consultation with numerous gastroenterologists. The
child had been subjected to colonoscopy a dozen times, but nothing could be
found as the source of his blockage. Laxatives hardly helped at all. There was
no diagnosis except that he suffered severely from constipation,” confirms
Dr. Flashner. “Then the parents found their way to me so that the boy
might undergo examination and treatment one more time. They described their
eight-year-old’s condition. “I improved the child’s diet and
removed all junk foods. Then I instigated an exercise program, had him drink
lots of water, balanced his colonic flora, and added fiber food supplements.
But most vital for Tommy’s welfare is that he took colon hydrotherapy
under my prescription. The beneficial effect was dramatic,
within six months he was experiencing a natural and normal bowel movement every
day. No laxatives were involved in his progress,” states Dr. Flashner. “Now
the child does not need to consult me anymore; still, he continues his colonic
cleansing by having colon hydrotherapy. He did this once a month for six months,
and currently he undergoes the cleansing just four times a year. It’s
been two years that Tommy remains in excellent physical condition
“Colon hydrotherapy is the perfect specific
procedure to eliminate constipation and restore normal bowel function. My approach
to medical practice is to balance the GI tract using stool testing. I find various
pathologies relating to bacteria, yeast, parasites, and other organisms of this
nature. A lot of disease comes from imbalances in the colon, as manifested by
inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune diseases, allergies,
multiple sclerosis, and certainly constipation. Such imbalances can be corrected
by means of colon hydrotherapy, herbal supplements, and diet,” says Dr.
Paul Flashner. “There is no question about the huge difference a health
professional can bring to the patient by utilizing colon hydrotherapy plus other
associated complementary and alternative methods of healing.
Enemas can be used by those who have problems with a sluggish, irregular or under active
bowel. Enema is proven as the best natural method for a clean colon. It is a
tremendous remedy for all kinds of bowel problems. Many ingredients can be added
to enema water to increase its effectiveness in some specific manner.
Coffee enemas help detoxify the liver. Flaxseed
tea enemas relieve inflammation in the bowel. Clay such as calcium bentonite,
when added to enema water assists in absorbing and mobilizing
toxins from the bowel wall. Acidophilus culture taken orally is helpful in detoxifying
the bowel and in building friendly bacteria. Acidophilus implants can also be inserted rectally over night.
Your Intestinal Track is The Origin Of Disease
Dr. Joseph Rodrigo M.D - "Almost all diseases begin in the
digestive track. This includes diabetes, asthma, cancer, alzheimer's, heart disease, memory
loss, fibromyalgia, MS, and too many to even list here. If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers
to your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal track is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing.
I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health."
of fasting offer thousands of testimonials from recovered asthmatics, arthritics,
insomniacs, and ex-sufferers of migraines, skin and digestive disorders, and
dozens of other ailments. They maintain that - with the exception of serious
conditions like tuberculosis, ulcers, diabetes, hypoglycemia, blood, liver,
kidney and heart diseases- systematic voluntary abstention from eating is almost
always a healthy first response to illness. Dr. Bernard Jensen, author of "Tissue
Cleansing Through Bowel Management" has supervised over 50,000 fasts at his
center in Escondido, CA."
"I was overweight, plagued with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high
tryglicerides and diabetic. Treatments by some of the "best" physicians (with
medication) in Israel and in California resulted in no significant improvement.
Three years ago I started to do my own research and got across Dr. Fuhrman's
book. Well written to be understood by layman and with scientific evidence.
Since applying Dr. Fuhrman's recommendations, I lost 70 pounds in 5 months (the
first 40 in 6 weeks). All indicators went back to better than normal after two
weeks into the program. I later experienced 20 days fast. It was the best experience
in my life. Since then, I bought more than 3 dozens of the book and gave it
to everyone I care about. This book is my new bible. It is a great reading material
for understanding and reinforcement. If practiced by everyone, physicians' rows
will be cut by 90%. Not to be missed if you serious about your health, your
well being and those around you." an amazon.com reviewer

Fasting With the Right Kind of Water
No matter what the specific health or fitness goal, one cannot achieve the
maximum benefit from any health program without drinking
the right kind of water in the proper amount. All experts agree, that next to
the air we breathe, water is the most important thing we will ever put in our
bodies. It is surprising that so much time and money is being spent on supplements,
organic foods and natural remedies but little attention is given to the quality
and effect of the water with which those items are taken.
The Quality of Water can positively or negatively affect one’s health.
Depending on what part of the country one lives in, it is easy to find trace
amounts of nitrates, pesticides, heavy metals, radioactive compounds, petrochemicals
and parasites coming from the local municipal water supply. The toxins and free
radicals in these waters are made significantly more toxic to humans by the
addition of chlorine -- a compound mandated by the public health department.
Water and Salt Regime
The Mayo Clinic had pronounced Lloyd Palmer, of Minnesota, as incurable.
Since 1965 he had suffered from excruciatingly painful arthritis of his spinal
column -- ankylosing spondylitis. His spine twisted and lost movement until,
he says, he became a "walking comma." He suffered pain for 31 years, until he
started to drink water and take salt. He writes: "I continue to be pain-free
with my ankylosis spondylitis one year after starting the water/salt regime.
My blood pressure is normal as well. I thank God every day for allowing me to
finally be pain-free."
Water therapy (hydrotherapy) has been used
for centuries to heal the sick. Hydro- and hydrothermal therapy are traditional
methods of treatment that have been used for the treatment of disease and injury
by many cultures, including those of ancient Rome, China, and Japan. Water therapy
has been around for centuries. The ancient Greeks took therapeutic baths. Water
is an important ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Native American healing
F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. - "Every function inside the body
is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital
elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body.
Without sufficient water to wet all parts equally, some more remote parts of
the body will not receive the vital elements that water supplies. Water is also
needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. In fact, there are at least
50 reasons why the body needs sufficient water on a regular, everyday basis.
Without sufficient water to constantly wet all parts, your body's drought-management
system kicks into action. The histamine-directed chemical messenger systems
are activated to arrange a new, lower quota of water for the drought-stricken
areas. When histamine and its subordinate "drought managers" come across pain-sensing
nerves, they cause pain. This is what I discovered in my research that I mentioned
Our bodies have an amazing capacity to self-heal if we restore balance to
them and support them with the proper nutrition.
Ionized/alkaline water nourishes us
with an abundance of antioxidants, high alkalinity, oxygen and super hydration.
It rids the body of acid waste which compromises our health.
Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D. - "Water has the ability to
attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores an energy memory of harmful
or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past. Chlorinated tap water
is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is
also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as
well as 'dead'. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health
care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device
in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases."
I NEVER drink plain water when I fast. During
my water fasts, I always add Himalayan Crystal salt
to my energized, alkaline microwater. When water and
salt combined, they form a new dimension,
Sole (So-Lay). Sole is Alive! It’s the fundamental mineral infusion
for your body. You can replace electrolytes and balance your energy simply and
naturally by drinking a Sole solution each day. The sole is an excellent product
for balancing the pH factor of your body. With the sole, one can also get rid
of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, amalgam and calcium because
the crystal salt is able to break up their
molecular structures. Mankind originally emerged from the sea. So we, so to
speak, still carry sea water in our veins; the chemical and mineral composition
of our blood and saline fluids have an amazing similarity to sea water. And
when we are an embryo in our mother's womb, we are encased in a sack filled
with a saline fluid which is in some ways identical to sea water. Sea water
contains 84 mineral elements. These same 84 mineral elements are found in
our bodies. I may also alternate a little or Calcium Montmorillonite
Clay or earth made minerals with Himalayan Crystal Salt. The salt, clay or in water help draw out toxins
and rejuvenates the body. When organic, unrefined salt lack in your diet, weakness
and sickness follow.
"Although nowadays the common response to illness is usually to "take something,"
it may be advisable to try the opposite. Therapeutic fasting is an excellent
self-healing practice. It induces metabolic changes that are inherently cleansing
and repairing. The organs empty and rest, conserving energy, promoting the elimination
of waste and accumulated toxins, and making cell regeneration much more efficient.
Fasting is mankind's most ancient healing strategy. Many traditional cultures,
including Oriental, east Indian, and Native American, have long regarded it
a dependable curative and revitalizing personal health measure. Hippocrates
prescribed fasting, as did Galen and Paracelsus, and it was practiced by Plato,
Socrates, Pythagoras, and Mahatma Gandhi. In modern Europe, reputable clinics
that support therapeutic fasting are quite common. In Sweden it's practically
a national sport. " Lonny J. Brown, Ph.D.
