Tonight is the start of our 3 day fast, starting at 9pm on Thursday and finishing at 9pm on Sunday. After having cervical cancer when I was 22, I decided never to use bleached women’s products again, and to detox on a regular basis. If you like to eat but you want to detox, here is my 3 day Detox Menu Plan.
Is Fasting Healthy?
There is some misguided controversy about whether fasting is healthy (often from people who are uniformed). Some nutritionists may even say that it is harmful, although there is no scientific proof to justify this theory. I have practiced it all of my life and feel lighter, cleaner and rejuvenated after every cleanse.
There is now scientific evidence that fasting for 72 hours, actually “flips a regenerative switch” that initiates stem cells to make white blood cells, consequently restoring the immune system. The study also confirmed that patients who fast after undergoing chemotherapy, help to protect themselves from the toxic impact of chemotherapy and hasten the death of cancer cells.
Professor of biological science, Valter Longo, PhD, researches caloric restriction and fasting in cancer, said…“There is no evidence at all that fasting would be dangerous while there is strong evidence that it is beneficial.”
Immune System Regeneration
Fasting for three days can regenerate the entire immune system, and scientists have described the recent breakthrough as “remarkable.” The study also confirms that the elderly can help to boost their immune system by fasting.
