Re: Day 46 - Ended fast today
I have to disagree with your following statements...........
"Multiple shorter fasts to start with, rather than the one long fast."
"One school teaches its students that "Generally speaking, the use of several fasts of four to seven days each is just as effective as one fast for several weeks." While there are cases where we are compelled to employ a series of short fasts in this way, it has not been my experience that a series of short fasts is as effective as one long fast. I do not know of any one who has had long experience with fasting who claims that such has been his or her experience. Dr. Hazzard does not favor this view. Neither does Carrington.
It has been my experience that in all cases, where the long fast is possible, one long fast is far more effective and more satisfactory than a series of short ones. No plan of feeding between the fasts will accomplish what the fast will do, if continued. The length of the fast must be governed by the patient's condition and by the results obtained."
"Your body can only get rid of the toxins as fast as the elimination channels can eliminate. The rest returns to body tissue, and organs."
Toxins do not return to the body as you have stated: they are either eliminated thru the normal channels of elimination, or used as fuel for the body in the process known as Autolysis. It is a fallacy to believe otherwise.
"Doing other body cleanses prior to the Water Fast
(Liver, Gall Bladder, etc.)"
This is not a statement that the experienced and knowledgeable fasters would agree with here, including me. The body is the most efficient cleanser of all, given the right circumstances, so most see the need for liver and gallbladder cleanses as superfluous, if the fast is of sufficient length.
