Welcome to the world of fasting. This is merely an introduction. There are a lot of great resources on this, such as the Master Fast System. There is Dr. Sergei Ivanovich Filonov, A Dry Fasting Expert from Russia. Dr. Mark Mattson from John Hopkins University (check out his TED Talk on the subject), The Fasting Cure by Upton Sinclair. As you do your research, if there are more...please let me know.
Have you ever heard of someone say "He or She said they were feeling fine, then all of a sudden....they dropped dead".
Have you ever heard of a person that dies all of a sudden, after receiving a clean bill of health?
Your brain can process several trillion bits of information per second. (we are running 2700 known physiological functions, that is a lot of data). But the average person is only conscious of 50 bits per second.

So, the average person is really unaware of what is going on in the body. Now, the more food you put in your system...the more unaware you get. Now you are below average on the awareness scale.
"You can actually live on 1/4 of the food you put in your body. Your doctors live on the other 3/4ths." *

You can help yourself by putting less food in your system, the will boost your awareness.
This is the highest level of detoxification you can do. Good for you for even considering this, because you are going to really get in tune with your body. Fasting has gotten our kidneys filtering like no other method (and we did fruit and herbs for years). To get the true benefits of herbs, you must fast while doing them
This is the first step of any successful detox. Without this, you are wasting time, and I don't waste people's time, or my time. If you have chosen to use this site to help your situation, then I am here to help you. It is my desire now to guide you in the right path. If you were a family member, I would get a Live Blood Cell Analysis to see if your blood is stagnant. If it is...I would not fast, but I would direct you to the Raw Food Center and have you follow the "Ideal Diet for Humans". But if your blood is not stagnant, you can try fasting. There are many methods of dry fasting.
Here is the actor Terry Crews talking about how he does Intermittend Dry Fasting. It is not as deep a cleanse as the Master Fast System, but you can start this right now:
Chiropractic is truly awesome and highly effective (that is why I do it). But no doctor can match mother nature. Let me give you an example:
What is Dry Fasting?
Dry fasting is not eating for a period of time. A Dry Dry is when you don't eat or drink anything, not even letting water touch you. So, showering, brushing teeth, washing lbsyour hands is a no no. The Fast that my wife and I did in 2017, and what Terry Crews does is called Intermittent Dry Fasting (fasting for an Intermittent period of time). When I refer to Dry Fasting, I am talking about Intermittent Dry Fasting.
What my wife and I do separate from Terry Crews, is that did a deep cleanse. We have a drinking window everyday. You need this window for kidney support, helping the bowels move "stuff", and to cleanse and hydrate your cells. Then we don't eat at all during the fasting schedule.
UPDATE: My wife has a severe neurolgical disorder, and fasting only made her weak. She went to 79 lbs. I had to stop this, and get her back to eating a more raw food and vegan diet and strength train her. She is as of this writing (6/10/2018) 108 lbs. She is doing great now, due to the "Ideal Diet for Humans" under the Raw Food Center....and will walk soon. We should not have fasted, because her blood was stagnant and filled with all sorts of garbage that Fruit, Herbs, and Fasting did not take care of
Now back to fasting, if you want to. Your kidneys will be working overtime in this process. You do not want to burn them out. This happened to the founder of the Master Fast System (Luigi Gino Di Serio) in the early days of his experiments. He spent 2 years bed ridden as a result. The finalized system takes into account protecting your kidneys
I have a patient that had many hip surgeries, and it is tough for her to move around. The doctors did not give her much hope. I adjusted her a couple times, with soft tissue/muscle work with great benefits. She noticed following a simplified version of Intermittent Dry Fasting ....she has less inflammation and soreness not just in her hips....but overall (and she needs less Chiropractic treatments).
Why Do This?
80% of your body's energy is used to digest food. By dry fasting, we are letting the body use all of it's energy on healing. So, let say you eat one meal a day.......that means you took 33% of your energy away from healing your body (assuming you eat 3 times a day)
