Hi Rainy, as far as your question about starvation on diseased tissue versus on juice or honey- i came to realize that there is more to this than we can theorize. The first time I did a juice fast i was really resistant to it because i thought "what's the difference between a juice fast and starvation or malnourishment. yet, i did it because so many people rave about the benefits. after the fast i realized it was more gentle than water yet i was left with great maybe the same results. i think they are both important and valid healing modalities. for people on medication, or people that are weaker or need to be active during the fast juice is better. for people that are less toxic or their immune system and detoxification organs can handle it then water is optimal. i've read that nowadays we are a lot more toxic than we used to be when Water Fasting was mostly used so maybe we need more assistance in the detox process in form of juices, chlorella, herbs, etc. Also i still felt as if i am fasting - the juice and honey didnt really stop the detox or cleansing. in some ways it assisted it. the body was able to heal and repair.
I am not attached to either opinion. I am pretty open to different and even opposing opinions. I know that the truth comes in many forms and shapes and contrary to my dislike of juice fasting before i did it i still reversed my symptoms 90%, so it worked. I pretty much went from being in bed and thinking I am gonna die soon from joint pain moving around and eye inflammation etc to not having pain and working out and running and being stronger than i used to be. Also periods of food shortage are really part of how we evolved, its in our cell memory. our ancestors were used to that. I am going to do a Water Fast after the honey fast so i will be able to compare. my last Water Fasts were ok because i didnt necessarily get the results i was looking for.
This message turned out to be wayyyyy tooo long. i guess its a complicated answer hehe.
Blessings and thanks for the happy fasting wishes :) I will try to write a comparision message when i am done with both
