Will You Fast With Us in 2013? -Roger Mason

Ideally, everyone who reads this newsletter is fasting one day a week, from dinner to dinner (or lunch to lunch. or whatever) on water, every week. You simply miss breakfast and lunch on your fast day. If you are only eating two meals a day, that means you only miss your one earlier meal. If something comes up on your fast day, just fast one day earlier, or one day later. The staff at Young Again fasts every week for one day, but also fasts for two days every month. This is always the last complete Friday to Sunday (or Thursday to Saturday) of the month. So, you’ll eat dinner on Friday (or Thursday), and then eat dinner again on Sunday (or Saturday). We actually fast on cruise ships, and simply skip breakfast on our fast day and walk around and have fun until dinner. You CAN do this! You can work up to it if you can’t do it at first. Soon short term fasting will actually be enjoyable and meaningful. Read the article Do a Five Day Fast in 72 Hours. You can go to various spas for one week fasts.

The idea of going without food for 48 hours terrifies some people. Actually, the idea of  just going a mere 24 hours without food terrifies a lot of people. If going without food for two days intimidates you, just do the one day fast on these dates. If you can do 24 hours, you can do 30 hours. If you can do that, you can do 36 hours. Finally, you can work up to 48 hours without any discomfort. You’ll actually start to enjoy short term fasting. If you can fast, you can do anything!

 

FASTING IS THE MOST POWERFUL HEALING METHOD KNOWN. Fasting is a part of the Old and New Testament, and all major religions originally. Unfortunately, this has been abandoned by nearly all of them. Even Ramadan is merely going without food for 16 hours during the day, then eating at night. Catholics eat meat on Fridays. Mainstream Christians don’t include fasting, even though it was a basic teaching of Jesus. Fasting was one of Buddha’s “three secrets”. Herman Hesse told about this in his book Siddhartha, the story of the Buddha.

Fasting will make you stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Fasting will help you be healthier, bolster your immunity, detoxify your body, resist disease, lose weight, save money, feel better, and live longer. The “live longer” part is the best. That’s quite an impressive list of benefits. Our weekly fast is on Saturday (Friday evening to Saturday evening), so we don’t bother with breakfast on Saturdays. This gives us more time and energy to do all the things we want to do. You can choose any day you want. You can change the days to fit your schedule. The important thing is to fast every week
faithfully. Then please join our monthly two day international fast. Fasting is not “starvation”. You can easily go for two weeks on water and get healthier every day. You should take all your natural hormones while you fast. You don’t need to take your other supplements however. This is a good time though to take acidophilus, FOS, and glutamine to strengthen your digestive system, while it is empty and not digesting food.

 

Really good books on fasting have been written by Paul Bragg, Patricia Bragg, Alan Cott, Joel Fuhrman, Dave Williams, Herbert Shelton, Lee Bueno, Norbert Kriegisch, and Eve Adamson. Please take the time to read at least one of these books, so you’ll understand just how powerful, proven, and effective this really is. Their dietary advice is not as good as their fasting advice, however.

 

Fasting will literally change your life. Just think of the fact you’ll be giving your body a rest 52 days a year with the weekly fast. If you add the two day monthly fast, your body will be able to rest 64 days a year- or more than TWO MONTHS every year. The cumulative effect here is amazing. Please fast with us in 2013. People from around the world will be fasting together on the above twelve dates. Please join us.

 

Please be sure to read the article Seven Steps to Natural Health under “S”. Diet is everything. Diet cures disease. Along with diet, proven supplements are powerful. Natural hormone balance is essential. Do not take prescription drugs. Exercise regularly, even if it just walking daily. Limit or end any bad habits like coffee or desserts. Fasting is the most powerful healing method known to man, and is one of the seven steps.
