Fasting is a great way to detox your body. This is general advice. My wife has a lot of viruses/parasites causing her neurological issues. Raw Food worked in the beginning, but then hit a plateau. Fasting did nothing for the viruses.
If you have a serious issue, it could be viruses/parasities. I would contact my wife's doctor. Dr. Lonnie Herman at (954) 370-3100 to get the viruses and parasites address.
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 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 want you to waste your time. If you have chosen to use this site to help your situation, then I am here to help you. If you were a family member, I would get you checked for viruses/parasites first. Fasting and Raw Food WILL NOT get rid of them, in our experience. But I have the fasting information below as an educational resource. There are many methods of dry fasting.
Here is the actor Terry Crews talking about how he does Intermittend Dry Fasting. This is something you can start right now:
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 your 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 did separate from Terry Crews, is what is called the Master Fast System. After my wife did a 7 day fast, then an 11 day fast, then a 40 day fast, then a 54 day fast with this system, she still had a lot of garbage in her blood...that the system did not help with. It just made her weak. We found out during a live blood cell analysis that she had a lot of viruses/parasites. The practitioners we chose at the time could not help us with that. So, I provided the doctor that is now helping my wife. He is on the top of the page.
After all the fruit, herbs, and fasting.....she still had these problems found in her live blood cell analysis....that was not taken care of. Her blood was stagnant, and found out she should not have did fasting. 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. As of this writing (May 24th, 2020) she is under Dr. Lonnie Herman's care. He is getting rid of all the viruses/parasites.
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)
