Why a Cleansing Fast and How to Prepare?

The following sections are directly transcribed from the booklet we received. We hope you find this helpful to understand better what we are doing and to make a better informed decision if you ever thought about doing one of these cleansing fast programs:

Overview:

These programs work as a healing mechanism. They start working at full potential after 24-36 hours without the intake of food. Our healing mechanism works best when we stop eating, ingesting, digesting and metabolizing food.

Our bodies switch to DETOXIFICATION MODE and remove parasites, toxins and potentially cancerous cells. This waste material is then dumped into the bloodstream for excretion through the liver, colon, lungs and skin. The tired and weak feeling experience during the first 3 to 4 days are due entirely to the presence of these toxins and other waste matter waiting to be excreted, NOT the lack of food. Incidentally, you will be taking so many detoxifying drinks, cleansing herbs and nutritional herbs, you will not get physically hungry at all.

These programs will remove large amounts of toxic and waste materials from your system and also promote the loss of many kilos of putrefied matter and fat. This will enable your body to begin to RE-BUILD and REJUVENATE, thus giving you more vitality and help prevent further illness. Learn to follow the “Five Habit System” of cleansing, breathing properly, food combining, exercise, meditation and peacefulness. All of these help to make a healthier and happier life!

Step 1: How to prepare yourself (the correct way)

Before starting any fasting program we strongly encourage you to do what we call a “Pre-cleanse”. This should be for at least 2-3 days, or even 1-2 weeks! It depends how toxic you think you can be – everyone is different.

Basically this involves eating only fruit, salad and only slighted cooked vegetables with juices, herb teas and plenty of pure water. No meat, processed foods, alcohol, caffeine or soft drinks. We have specially designed what we call our “LIVER FLUSH DIET” which consists of salads, veggie soups, lighly steamed vegetables and our famous liver flush drink. This drink has extra virgin oil, fresh garlic, ginger and cayenne pepper mixed with freshly squeezed orange juice and lemon. It starts the process of elimination by assisting the liver, kidneys and call bladder to detoxify and cleanse.

Cooking and Staying Healthy

One of our goals for this trip is to become more healthy and we plan to take a holistic approach to “healthy”. We will focus our efforts in the body, mind and soul. This week we will start a pre-cleansing process by eliminating all processed foods, meats and complex carbohydrates – including eliminating coffee and bread. For those that know us this is very hard! In other words, this week we are only allowed to eat veggies and fruits.

The pre-cleansing will be followed by 7 days of guided fasting. We will have a rigorous liquid diet with herbal supplements, ampuku abdominal massages, Thai herbal, steam room and colemas… let’s see if we survive!

It has been a great adventure and challenge to find our food for this week in a country where we don’t speak the language and where we are limited to only fruits and some veggies. Tarci signed up for a cooking course of “raw foods” to make sure we have variety in our meals as we plan to eat at home to save money.

We got lucky and found a variety of vegetables. Now the difficult part is how to cook them creatively over the next 7 days.
