Fasting to prevent sickness and cure disease
As a result of our modern lifestyle and diet, the human body easily becomes congested with toxic poisons that cause sickness and disease. Fasting is like internal housecleaning: turning off the constant flow of food into your body and allowing it to cleanse itself automatically.
Fasting allows your entire system to rest and rejuvenate; causes the breakdown and excretion of poisonous wastes that have accumulated in the body; burns excessive fat; conserves energy and increases clarity of mind; prevents illness; regulates appetite; and makes the skin look younger and more radiant. Fasting will also help to cure skin eruptions; gas and indigestion; constipation; colds and allergies; and numerous other health problems. Fasting is a preventive medicine, a path to improved health and a cure for disease.
“By fasting I have found perfect health, a new state of existence, and a feeling of purity and happiness, something unknown to most humans…” - Upton Sinclair
Fasting and the effect of the moon
The best days to fast are three days before the new and full moon. In the same way that the moon’s gravitational attraction causes tides in the ocean during the new and full moon periods, it also causes “tides” in our bodies, which are composed of over 70% water. According to scientific research, during the full and new moon days, and three days before and after, the moon’s gravitational attraction draws the liquid in our bodies upwards into our brain. This excess of fluid in the brain disturbs its functioning, resulting in various mental and physical symptoms such as restlessness, irritability, extremes of emotion, anger and strange behavior. Newspapers and police departments often report increased crime and disturbances during these times.
