While life expectancy is increasing in Western countries, cases of diabetes, hypertension, obesity and cancer are increasing, and the use of medication has exploded. Does this mean that in order to live to a ripe age we are condemned to swallow more and more drugs? What if there was another way?

For half a century, in Russia, Germany and the U.S., doctors and biologists have been exploring a different therapeutic approach: fasting.The results are amazing. Soviet researchers have provided a body of clinical studies of exceptional wealth ...only published in Russian, and thus unknown in the West.

Young biologists from the University of Los Angeles have overturned conventional wisdom and used molecular biology to demonstrate the powerful effects of fasting. These researches suggest a wide-ranging potential, which could include treatments for the disease of the century, cancer. If these scientists are right, maybe our approach to disease and treatment will need a rethink.


only fasted 3 times in my life, but were all excellent experiences. first was a juice fast for 2 weeks (very difficult)... 2nd was water-only fast for 35 days (best, and easiest after the 3rd day). can't do much on water fast, but it is by far the most useful. 3rd time was only for 21 days, water only... which was hardest one:
Most difficult part of last fast was being too toxic and getting a lot of acidic/bile build up because of all the toxins body that was releasing ( and parasite rebellion?) while the "waste system" was shut down. Read there was a way to fool the body without breaking ketosis using carbonated water (which worked). Next time I'm going to use baking soda (1/2 teaspoon in glass of water), which also doubles as an anti-parasite aid.
also learned the hard way NOT to do a colonic on the 4th day of a water fast (after waste system shuts down)... do it BEFORE you start, if at all. talk about PAINFUL! they stopped, and it had to be rescheduled to AFTER the fast.

My friend started fasting all day Monday, Wednesday and Friday... while working his full time job.

he says he didn't notice any tiredness, but then he also drinks coffee on the days he is fasting.

He lost weight really fast, although looks a bit gaunt now. I think he probably needs to replenish vitamins, choline, ubiquinol, nicotinamide riboside, things like that, although I don't know exactly which.

I want to do it, but I have no willpower whatsoever.

Trust me, its not a hard thing. We fast for 30 days every year. I love it.
But this fast is from sunrise till sunset.
