Fasting Instructions for Revitalizing Yourself and Reversing Diseases
Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.
“Here is the sort of fast I want,” God says in the Bible. Fast and “your light will break forth like morning . . . [and your] healing shall spring forth speedily.” (Isaiah 58:6-11)
As the above Bible verse indicates, God’s counsel advises fasting so that every area of your life will be free. What a promise! Your spirit, mind, and body are included in this great prognosis. Fasting, the Great Creator promised, facilitates Divine freedom. “Your light will break forth like morning . . . [and your] healing shall spring forth speedily.” Your fast, He declared, will even right your relationship with Him! So that He can go before you, and the glory, His goodness, will be your guardian.
How can fasting hold such promise?
Because irregardless of culture or religious background, fasting has been universally taught, prescribed, and practiced to accomplish miraculous healings and spiritual blessings, including opening people’s hearts to the Divine presence and Holy Spirit comprised of universal love, sacred harmony, and natural balance.
Hello! My name is Dr. Len Horowitz. More than twenty years ago I published a scientific report in the American Journal of School Health on the “Self-care Motivation Model for Healthy Human Development.” At that time I was a practicing dentist, director of an alternative medical clinic, and a post-doctoral health science researcher and faculty member at Harvard University. During the next ten years I received two additional master’s degrees, one in public health from Harvard, and the other in health education from Beacon College. I published dozens of scientific reports in various fields of health and healing. I personally trained more than 30,000 healthcare professionals in the most advanced ways to prevent and treat modern infectious diseases. And most importantly, I became the father of three optimally health, totally unvaccinated, children who, along with my wife and I, practice simple and effective natural healing strategies, including the fasting instructions below.
In my book Healing Celebrations™, I crystallize all of the most important information and recommendations I have learned and provided all these years. The Healing Celebrations™ package put together by Tetrahedron, LLC, described at http://www.healingcelebrations.com/, will accelerate your understanding of the true dynamics of health, healthcare, and healing. Power self-care and natural healing methods are prescribed. The simple steps I recommend will not only prevent modern plagues from striking you and your loved ones, but will help you, and others, recover, most rapidly and dramatically, from every lifestyle-related disease, including cancers and autoimmune diseases to asthma and allergies.
Also discussed in my nine-hour audiotape interactive training package Taking Care of Yourself, and in the 90-minute summary audio, “Horowitz ‘On Healing,’” fasting is used to detoxify the body. It brings natural healing by cleansing the body of toxins. It gives the organs a rest and can help reverse the aging process. By simply fasting three days a month, you can help rebuild your immune system. You will help fight off illness and degenerative diseases. Fasting is therefore helpful, for instance, when you feel a cold, illness, or even depression coming on, providing you use the right fast.
For instance, depression is largely associated with blood sugar imbalances and hypoglycemic tendencies. As a hypoglycemic, every afternoon around three, I typically felt angry and irritable for no good reason. Likewise, if you feel compelled to grab a chocolate bar or other sweet snack around this time of the day, you too likely suffer from hypoglycemic tendencies. A “528 Superfood” green harvest” fruit smoothie juice fast for a few days provides a miraculous solution to this problem.
But in my case, I wanted to accomplish much more. I wanted to really cleanse my body and purge the toxins from my liver, bloodstream, and kidneys. I also wanted to boost my “spiritual anointing.” So after fasting on the old Stanley Burrough’s “Master Cleanser” fast for nine days (described below) which is great for a general detox program, I switched to a “528 Superfood” green harvest fruit smoothie fast for another thirty-one days.
The “528 Superfood” green harvest made it far easier to fast without discomfort. It provided the full array of nutrients I needed from whole raw organic foods blended into a good tasting powdered formula ideal for fasting, rejuvenation, and weight loss. I, thus, fasted for a total of forty days using these two fasts. I lost about fifteen pounds, and fit into my blue jeans that I had as a senior in high school once again! I felt great, and you will too by following these simple fasting instructions.
Length of Fasts
In general, from three to ten day fasts are recommended for health and longevity. It is a scientific fact that by fasting three days a month, you can extend your life by several years as well as heal faster along the way. A three day fast helps rid the body of toxins, a five day fast starts the healing process, and ten day fast should take care of most problems before they arise. For longer fasts, continue until the coating on the tongue is clear, your breath is sweet, and you are very hungry.
Do not fast on water alone!
Don’t chew anything, such as gum or mints. This starts the digestive juices flowing and is harmful to the system.
Don’t eat junk, especially during a fast. The last thing you eat will be the next thing you crave! If you eat a Whopper, you’ll want more junk. If you eat veggies, you’ll want something healthy. Our bodies are designed by God to want healthy food, but by feeding it the wrong things, we deaden the senses to what is right. Our bodies no longer know what to tell us to eat.
Do not drink orange or tomato juice on a fast.
Preparing for a Fast Eat only raw foods two days before and after the fast, the desired effects may be ruined by eating cooked foods immediately following a fast.
Begin Your Fast First thing in the morning drink one eight ounce glass of Cat’s Claw Immune Support. This will aid in your absorption of all nutrients, as well as in cleansing and recreating cellular structures. 20-30 minutes later, drink one ounce of Oxy528Advantage (previously Body Oxygen) to aid in the detoxifying process. Take a second eight ounce glass of Cat’s Claw Immune Support, on an empty stomach, around mid afternoon, followed about half-an-hour later by a second ounce of Oxy528Advantage. Be sure that you have not had any juice before taking the Oxy52Advantage.
If you must eat something, have a slice of watermelon. Always eat watermelon alone. Also fresh apple sauce made with the skins on and processed in a blender or food processor is satisfying and won’t significantly disrupt your fast. Use bran on your fast. Oat bran is considered best. This helps cleanse the colon by adding fiber. It is best to take this at night before going to sleep. Spirulina, also in “528 Superfood” green harvest, can also be used during a fast. It is loaded with protein and all the vitamins and minerals the body needs. Dr. Horowitz’s G.I. Flora Pro, which contains psyllium husks, along with soil-based microorganisms, is also recommended following day three of a fast. This product helps to reestablish the optimal intestinal microflora for better digestion and nutrient assimilation.
Enemas during a fast are an absolute must. The enemas during fasting will assist the body in its cleansing and detoxifying effort by washing out all the toxic wastes from the alimentary canal. Enemas should be taken at least once, preferably twice a day. (Upon rising and before going to bed.) One pint to one quart of lukewarm distilled water is sufficient. Enema bags are available in any drug store.
Water and Juice Recommendations
Every day drink half your body weight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces of water a day. Contrary to recent debates, the health science consensus currently believes that steam distilled water is the best for fasting, while alkalinized water is the best for maintenance hydration. Many reputable authorities believe that steam distilled is the only water that actually goes in and pulls out toxins from the organs. It literally pulls out the mire that gets caught in the follicles of the colon that breeds disease. You will also find that drinking distilled water helps curb your appetite, unlike a sweet drink or juice that causes your body to want more. When on your fast, dilute your pure juices with steam distilled water. Avoid juices with sweeteners. Again, DO NOT DRINK ORANGE OR TOMATO JUICE on a fast. The best juices are fresh lemon juice, cabbage, beet, carrot, celery, grape, and apple juice, as well as green drinks made in a juicer from leafy green vegetables. These are excellent detoxifiers. Raw cabbage juice is known to help heal ulcers, cancer, and all colon problems. However, it must be fresh, not stored. It looses its vitamin U content. For a powerful aid in rebuilding the immune system, drink Pau d’arco and Echinacea tea mixed with one-third unsweetened cranberry juice four times a day. Pure vegetable broth’s are also good with no seasonings added. To prepare these gently boil veggies, including onions and garlic for 30 minutes. Drink 2-3 times a day. Another excellent juice and broth is three carrots, two stalks of celery, one turnip, two beets, a half of a head of cabbage, and a quarter of bunch of parsley, a quarter and a clove of garlic. This could be one of the best juices on our planet for healing many illnesses. A final fast to consider is old Stanley Borroughs’s “master cleanser.” In a gallon of steam distilled water, mix the juice of five fresh lemons and enough grade B maple syrup to make a tasty lemonade. Then add one or two teapoons of hot, hot cayenne pepper, of at least 90,000 heat units, to your heat and taste tolerance. This is especially good for alkalinizing the body and raising body temperature to help resolve infections, like the flu-type illnesses going around.
Assessing Healthy Results
These types of fasting formulas bring the body back to doing what it was designed to do. Accomplishing the will of God without the hindrances of fatigue, obesity and illness. You should dramatically see and feel a difference in your health status by day three of a good fast. Most people, following initial withdrawal from chemical dependencies (including caffeine and sugar addictions), gain extra energy by day three. Feeling lighter, freer and energized is commonly experienced along with improvements in complexion and eye color. These changes just let you know you are on the return track to optimal health.
After experiencing the benefits of fasting, always break fasts gently. Lightly steamed veggies in their broth with whole grain brown rice is one way to break your fast. During the last days of a lengthy fasts, whole raw organic foods and their products, the best is “528 Superfood” green harvest, may be used. This organic food formula will help in both continued detoxification as well as immune system boosting. Continue to use Cat’s Claw Immune Support and Oxy528Advantage to maintain optimal health.
Here is Another Fast and Detoxification Program from Dr. Horowitz:
Here is another recommended fasting and detoxification program from Dr. Horowitz:
1. Start with a RAW DIET that includes savory foods like tomatoes and cucumbers. Ideally purchase organic produce.
2. Smokers that are orally fixated should prepare carrot and celery sticks to grab as needed, and be sure to drink plenty of good pure pH 8 adjusted drinking water to reduce headaches and withdrawal symptoms. Alcoholics denied their favorite beverages should use DETOX TEAS, including witch hazel sticks available though many health food stores.
3. People who are in pain from arthritic inflamed joints and others with muscle spasms and fibromyalgia should try DETOX BATHS: To one bathtub of water, add 1/3 carton of Epsom salt (a large carton may be purchased from your local pharmacy), 1/3 largest container of 3% hydrogen peroxide (grocery store vintage). The 35% hydrogen peroxide is better but you may find it cost prohibitive and not readily available.) 1/3 cup AquiTerra Clay (available from www.HealthyWorldstore.com; 1-888-508-4787), and two tablespoons of coconut-based soap.
4. Do daily colonics. Purchase a simple enema or colonic set to use in your bathtub. Very refreshing! You can put smaller amounts of the same items listed above in the colonic water. Instead of the clay, some people use tiny pieces of charcoal. (Neither is required, but both may help pull toxins out).
5. Use the Miracle 6 detoxification sequences once a day, every other day, for a week or two. (Miracle 6 units are also available through (www.HealthyWorlStore.com; 1-888-508-4787), If you do not have, or cannot afford a Miracle 6 machine, see if you can purchase or borrow a low cost Beck “zapper” such as those supplied by Hulda Clarke.
The best place to use this, and just hang out, is lying on grass either in the shade or sun. The grass, especially wet with dew, will ground you into the energy of the planet, much like a lightening rod conducts the charge into the earth. The green color provides the core frequency of the cosmos to restore your energetic balance. The sunshine is AWESOME for providing the full spectrum of light your body needs to energize and heal. By doing this, you will regain health and strength daily. Even bed-ridden persons will be on their feet again soon.
6. Use Crystal Himalayan salt, or Celtic Sea salt. Do not use typical table salt. Minerals are vitally important for health. A product called PrimoLove is also recommended as a general multi-vitamin, mineral, and enzyme supplement. (Also available from www.HealthyWorldStore.com; 1-888-508-4787),
