I saw your video on dry fasting. I have multiple sclerosis for 18 years. I was bed bound on 15 medications and since then I lost over 150 pounds but I still can’t run. Thankful that I can walk. I am on a juice fast – mostly apples and oranges and pears. Can I do a 3-day dry fast?
It sounds like you have been through quite a journey!
Congratulations on your progress.
According to some of the data I’ve read on dry fasting, it really does work miracles. It even has been reported to dry up cancer.
While I am not qualified to give you medical advice, I can quote some of the information I have read and speak to you on my own experiences.
Here is what the small amount of research shows:
1. Fruits (such as apples, oranges, and pears) are going to feed disease since they are a form of sugar. Any pathogen will feed off of any fruit you are putting in your body. While fruit in and of itself is not inherently bad, I would not recommend it for anyone in your condition. In fact, according to Gabriel Cousens, MD of the Tree of Life in Patagonia, going on a 3 month to 1 year cleanse where you eliminate all sweet foods including fruits, can reverse disease. Here is a link to his flow chart for eliminating foods.
2. All the research I have done indicates that the stronger the fast (meaning water and dry), the quicker the healing results. I would suggest experimenting and seeing how you go. Begin with 15 hours of dry fasting and work your way up to 24 hours by adding an hour on each time you try it (maybe one time per week to start). You may want to do this with a coach or an experienced doctor. According to Dr. Filonoy (a Russian expert in dry fasting), one day of dry fasting is equal to three days of water fasting which is equal to seven days of juice fasting. So you will get quicker results and also quicker detox symptoms. While I am not authorising yo to go ahead with this, I would say experiment for yourself (as your own wise doctor) and see how you go.
** Please note: There are a number of conditions for which dry fasting is contraindicated; namely, malignant tumors or blood conditions, tuberculosis, hyperthyroidism, and other endocrine diseases, cirrhosis of the liver, heart arrhythmia, circulatory failure degrees II and III, pregnancy, and lactation. It is best to check with a qualifies medical practitioner before deciding to embark upon fast of any kind.
