Why fasting?


Pure water fasting in an ideal atmosphere will cleanse and purify the body.  The body will detoxify, repair, and regenerate impaired immunity.  During the fast, the body cleanses and purifies the blood.  The deeper the fast, the cleaner the body.  The fasting body achieves complete physiological rest which allows the body to repair organs and structures.  The body is self-healing.  It cleanses and excretes toxic chemical residue through the skin, urine, bowels, and mouth; ridding our bodies of diseased and degenerating tissue.


Fasting must be supervised by a trained physician to understand and manage patient symptoms.  Fasting must be done with love, support, and encouragement from people experienced with supervising fasting patients.  An ideal atmosphere includes complete peace and quiet, clean fresh air, and clean water.


The clarity of mind and spiritual oneness with their Creator is a unique spiritual and healthy experience.  Most individuals experience relief of all symptoms while fasting and achieve normal health when natural food is reintroduced.  The body rebuilds stronger and healthier tissues with organic nutrients from healthy, pure fruits and vegetables.  At the appropriate time when the patient is stable and has the proper reserves from the correct natural foods, we use clinically supervised water-only fasting to further cleanse, detoxify, and heal the person's body.  The environment the patient is in will be one of complete rest from outside stimulation of all kinds so the body can conserve all its energy toward healing and regeneration of the body. When it is clinically appropriate, we break the fast using high quality juices freshly made from whole organic fruits and vegetables.
