"My opinion still is that long fast does more harm than good in the body. It can upset the vitamin and mineral balance and can result a long therm damage to our system.
Reduced intake of food is the way to lower the weight.
Selective eating is the way to clean the body"!
The first sentence of yours above concerning long fasts doing more harm than good, is a sweeping generalization without any basis in fact or the experience of the majority, and which therefore needed to be corrected.
The annals of fasting have always demonstrated that long-term or protracted fasts are far more beneficial to the body than short fasts, and where in many instances this can mean the difference between success and failure: this was the experience of ALL qualified Natural Hygienists both past and present, and who have had by far the most experience with the fast than anyone else.
After saying that, there are some people in which a long fast is not advisable, or who even need one, but there is no doubting that history tells us that they are far more efficacious than shorter-term fasts.
The second sentence stating that long fasts upset the mineral/vitamin balance of the body, which then results in permanent damage to our system is basically just complete nonsense; it is the experience of thousands upon thousands of people (me being one of them) who were not able to recover their health from chronic and even life-threatening diseases...............without the undertaking of a long fast, or series of long fasts.
It is apparent that you did not read or digest this article based on the supervision of over 30,000 fasts......... http://www.soilandhealth.org/02/0201hyglibcat/020127shelton.III/020127.ch18.htm
Also: "the reduced intake of food is the way to lower the weight" is basically true, but it does not offer a permanent solution: as all reducing diets work, and all reducing diets fail..........just ask Mouseclick!!!
"Selective eating is the way to clean the body" is true, but takes an awfully long period of time, as opposed to the Water Fast which greatly accelerates this process whilst simultaneously accelerating the healing process.
All in all it is abundantly clear that your comments are made in ignorance of the facts, and where your own experience is not necessarily the experience of the majority. Which it isn't.
I have met you here previously SF in the Breaking News Forum where I posted on the role of vitamins in the prevention of tooth-decay/caries by a medically--peer-reviewed body known as the Orthomolecular News Service, and where it seems to be a habit of yours to instigate an argument/debate for no apparent reason.
In my dealings with you I find the majority of your posts to be pretentiously pedantic.
This will be my final word on the matter, as further discussion/comment/debate, will only prove to be a futile exercise.
