Listening to just how much fasting, no more and no less than my body needs, I made the decision to end Don Tolman’s 40-day water fast on its twenty first day. Since I’ve maintained my ideal BMI ratio for the past four decades with Body’Fit pH Fitness™ exercise (pHx™), I don’t carry a lot of extra fat. That’s not why I was fasting, I needed to detoxify from chemical poisoning after application of perfume containing aldehyde. I felt the final release of toxins from my solar plexus on day 21.
Since any residual pain I’d been experiencing when stretching in a cobra position was completely gone, what I didn’t want to do is start losing muscle – there was no need too. I broke my fast with a fabulous Japanese Buckwheat Soba Wakame soup that went right to my soul. The iron-like strength that a simple bowl of Ramen can impart after a fast is quite astonishing. Please note that breaking a fast like this may not be for everyone – it was what my body needed at that moment, and I wasn’t about to argue. I’m now doing a few days of Cabala juice to wind down the fasting process.
It’s interesting how orthodox academic propound on ancient ways of healing has argued that accounts passed down over the ages, although similar in many traditional texts, doesn’t imply effectiveness… “When one plant failed, another was tried, but the first may still have been recorded as a treatment.” “It could have been one in a long series of failed experiments.” Of course, since it’s been the practice of modern science to maintain meticulous records of both failed and successful experiments, and also for analysis to take precedence over empathetic intuition, this would have to be their point of view, wouldn’t it.
At the end of the day, when we rely on the knowledge and wisdom of our innate pre-established wholeness, we can observe that the scales of justice do not tip in the direction of concocted medicine synthesized for patentability. We don’t all know the intricacies of masking symptoms, however it becomes obvious when we unmask what works.
