The Benefits of the 24 Hour Water Fast

Today we are going to speak about the benefit of the 24 hour  weekly  water fast. water-fasting-fountain-of-youthThe most recognized figure whom lived by this principle was Paul C. Bragg,  of the “Bragg’s Healthy lifestyle”.  His energy, strength, vitality and youthfulness give us clue’s that this is in fact a powerful way to optimize the function of the body. He left his physical body during an accident in his 90’s while surfing.

Although at first it can be a bit challenging as you create this as a weekly practice it becomes a joyous experience allowing you to fully rest and rejuvenate. We are giving our digestive system a break which is one of the best things we can do to improve the overall function of our digestive system and organ system.

When the body is given the time to heal it will do so. Digesting food takes so much life force so in order to allow the body to clean house it requires a break.  Often the belief is to take this product or food to heal the body, however I believe it is what we let go of that heals the body and what we cleanse out of our system that gives us back our radiance.  Expensive supplements can be beneficial however clean the body out first and then see how its vital life force returns without fail. I present you with the miracle of water fasting.

If we want better bowel movements it’s a great idea to water fast.  Each meal we take in should yield a bowel movement shortly there after.   If this is not happening you can be sure food is fermenting, putrifying and going rancid attracting, parasites, yeast, mold and fungus.  Cleaning out the bowels via water fasting will take care of this, simultaneously clearing the mind.

If we want our hormones to be working in harmony with us a water fast also helps to balance these out. If we are bombarded with toxins that mimic hormones we must flush them out. Giving the liver and other organs the opportunity to “catch up” in a sense and expel these toxins will reset the hormones.  A liver flush is also a wonderful adjunct to clearing toxins.

If we want great skin and clear eyes water fasting will give us this. At first there might be blemishes as the accumulated waste begins to flush out of the body but in time the blood and fluids in the body will become cleaner and the organs will function better.  In turn the waste will exit the kidney and bowel not the skin.

After this you can talk to your health practitioner about longer water fasts.  These will often reverse conditions in the body giving you a new lease on life. We are bombarded on a daily basis with toxins in our environment so keeping up thru a detoxification regime will give us a the purity to live our full potential this lifetime.

These longer fasts assist us to release unnecessary weight. When we water fast we are losing fat but also all the chemicals and toxins that were stored in the fat. The reason why so many people can not lose weight effectively is because of the toxins stored in the fat cells. The body is utilizing the fat as a protective measure to store these toxins. It isn’t until we release the toxins through a tool like water fasting that we can fully let go of the unwanted weight.  First and foremost there must be an internal shift in our mind’s eye or a healing that takes place that we no longer feel the need to protect ourselves with extra fat.  Once we adopt a healthy lifestyle of fresh pressed vegetable juices, and a whole food approach we can keep that weight off. Moving the body, communicating with love and forgiveness and keeping up a cleansing regime must be apart of this lifestyle to keep your weight at its natural state. A holistic approach is the way of the Natural Lifestyle Enthusiast!

What if someone is intending to gain weight? Water fasting also resets the system for those that are too thin. When the body is too thin it is also in an unbalanced state of dis-ease so fasting will assist to clear the toxins. Enzyme therapy coupled with water fasting can be a powerful approach here.  The enzymes work to go after any viruses or bacteria that might be hindering the immune system from working properly.

So, the 24 hour water fast also gives us more energy, vitality, youthfulness,  emotional balance, and the ability to see things from an optimistic point of view. We are more quick to forgive, more aware of ourselves and are able to respond to life instead of re-act.

Some tips for implementing your 24 hour water fast:

  • Choose a day that you can rest as you desire.
  • Utilize Spring Water for the fast.
  • Sunbathe in early sunlight or late day sunlight for powerful nutrition via the sun.
  • Fill your time with positive affirmations, vision board creations or art that you enjoy on this day.
  • Get on the earth to receive valuable earth frequencies for hormonal balance and regeneration.
  • Adopt a healthy whole food organic lifestyle prior to the fast so you have fewer detox symptoms.
  • Consider doing a castor oil pack on the large intestine or the liver for 1 hour with infrared heat to assist toxin removal.
  • Prepare & perform a coffee enema if you get a headache. This will assist the liver to flush out these toxins.
  • Take a quality colon cleanser the night of your 24 hour fast. Oxy Powder by Dr. Edward Group is recommended.
  • Start your fast after breakfast and go until breakfast the next day. (BREAK the FAST…hence the word breakfast:))
  • Have a power packed superfood smoothie for breakfast and the next morning after 24 hours have a green vegetable juice to start the day!
  • Enjoy the emotional clearing, clearing of stagnant waste and the reset you gain from this bringing about a more ageless, loving and purified you!

What are Xeno Hormones and How do they Effect the Endocrine System?

The endocrine system is made up of the following glands:

  • hypothalmus
  • pituitary
  • thyroid
  • para thyroid
  • adrenals
  • pineal gland
  • reproductive glands

In the modern world our body can be exposed to xeno estrogens or what are known as xeno hormones. These are synthetic hormones that caricature estrogen in the body.

If you do your research you will find they are in common household products, make up, cans that canned food comes in, saran wrap, most all plastics,  tampons, non-organic pads for menstruation, hair spray, perfumes, soda cans and the list goes on. You get the idea.

I would like to zero in on women’s health and how it is vital to become wise about xeno hormones, especially during your moon cycle.  Since the endocrine system rules the regulation of your mood, growth & development, tissue function, metabolism, sex function and reproductive organ health it is best to follow a natural way of living in order to keep this system running clean and efficient.

A few tips would be simply to consider using eco friendly “moon pads.” A moon pad is a handmade  organic hemp or cotton fabric used in place of commercial tampons or pads. It is a reusable cloth that your body can bleed into at your time of menstruation. With moonpads we assist mother earth as well, by lessening the waste we dump into our landfills, not to mention our wildlife species.  We can feel more harmonious at this time of the month while allowing our blood to flow naturally. This relates to letting go of the emotions that are no longer serving us. We can also recognize that women have an opportunity to cleanse there body of toxins. Unlike men, women are given a chance each month to cleanse, wow!!!

Tampons and Pads are mostly laden with chemicals and xeno estrogens which cause serious disruption to the delicate hormone balance of the body.  This can cause hair growth in women especially around the mouth and chin. It can also cause breast cysts as well as ovarian cysts.  A cyst is the bodies way of collecting accumulated toxins into one specific area in a way to try and protect the body.

So if there is one thing you can do for your overall health it would be to switch to a more natural way of collecting your blood during the moon cycle. This is simply going back to the ways things used to be done centuries ago.  You can see that our modern world has created some opportunities for us to study how to live a natural life.  Here is a link to a great source for moon pads on one of my favorite websites, Etsy.  Here is the link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ShiznitThreads?section_id=5942918

Other places where you will find xeno hormones:

  • Plastic Wrap especially toxic when heated.
  • Commercially Raised Meat Products- not only are the animals fed estrogenic drugs to fatten up but the food they eat is also laden with chemicals.
  • Birth Control Pills
  • Commercial Shampoos & Conditioners
  • Plastic Bottles
  • Sun Screen
  • Herbicides -used for commercial gardens

Note:  I would also like to mention that a women’s moon cycle is to be about 3 days in length and easy and effortless. This means no pain or cramping. The blood flow should be minimal and not excessively heavy. In Chinese medicine we know that when we have an excess of blood flow we have an insufficient amount of Chi or Life Force.  The more stagnant or congested the Liver Chi is the more inconsistency the woman’s cycle is.  If the spleen is week you will notice insufficient amounts of blood leaving the body meaning not enough chi. A symptom of chi loss in general is signs of fatigue.

We must build our blood and learn how to increase our chi. This way our bodies and especially in this case our endocrine system have the beautiful opportunity to run clean, efficient, free and harmonious with the natural cycle of life!

Many Blessings to you and yours!
