Day 13...Cleansing The Body

Recovery Comes In Stages

I remember reading somewhere that the human body is designed with the capacity to fast.  The theory is that nature tells us to fast. When we have no appetite during an acute illness, fasting is nature's way to accelerate recovery. Feeding the sick individual when his digestive powers are diminished only serves to further complicate the illness. During an acute viral illness, fasting activates white blood cells and causes more interferon to be produced.

Now you need to understand that there is a vast difference between fasting and malnutrition.  When people outside our circle hear that we are doing the master cleanse, in other words fasting, they have mixed reactions.  A lot of individuals just plain think we are crazy.  I told a co-worker yesterday that I was currently doing a cleanse and hadn't eaten in 12 days.  He tried to refer me to a mental health professional.  I just laughed, what else could I do.  Family members seem to be the toughest judges when we are going through a cleansing journey.  I have read so many posts about the conflict that exists within families during a person's cleansing journey.  The concern lies in the fact that so many people just don't understand about fasting.  As I have already mentioned, fasting has no relationship to malnutrition.  The fact is, a poor quality diet consumed for a month results in a lower state of health.  Fasting on the other hand gives the body the opportunity to cleanse and heal itself.  When free from the responsibilities of digestion, the capacity for self-restoration is enhanced.  Fasting leads to detoxification and improvement in organ function, achieves results where other methods have failed, allows the body to recover from poor life choices in a dramatically short period of time, and is inexpensive and universally available.

The withdrawal symptoms of addiction to such drugs as alcohol, cocaine, nicotine and caffeine are resolved quickly while fasting. Most people are amazed at how easy it is to quit smoking while fasting. Those who have fasted begin to respect their body in a new way that enables them to take better care of themselves in the future.

Recovery comes in stages.

  • Stage 1 is a time of general excitation of the involuntary nervous system, lasting one to three days. Cleaning of the gastrointestinal tract takes place here and into stage 2. The body's innate energies formerly concerned with handling the digestive metabolic load are freed, allowing the body a chance to restore natural health and bring about a state of homeostasis.
  • Stage 2 is a time of inhibition, continuing from day two or three to the end of the first week and sometimes even into the second week. There is increasing evidence of acidosis, the presence of hypoglycemia and depression. The cleansing process is very evident in marked signs of toxicity, the return of former physical symptoms, and a dulling of mental processes, and sometimes an overwhelming sense of fatigue and the need to rest. There is generally a loss of appetite, and the tongue is likely to become coated.
  • Stage 3 is a time of gradual recovery, which most fasters do not go beyond during their initial experience. It is a time of normalization with its accompanying feeling of well being, usually far surpassing the pre-existing state.
  • Stage 4 is the time of full recovery.

Those of us engaged in the master cleanse or juice fasting have come to the realization that a change is needed in our lives and we have decided to be proactive about it, rather than wither away full of self-pity and doubt.  We are strong and we are making a difference in our lives.

"Man lives on one quarter of what he eats. On the other three quarters lives his doctor." Inscription on Egyptian pyramid, 3800 BC.

Peace and happiness
