it is said that fasting for 24 hours can boost your immune system by up to 25%

anyone ever fasted?

what is involved? what can you / cant you eat?

what are alternatives to seriously boosting my immune system?

whats part of your routine daily/weekly in this regard? (if any)

if you dont have one, why not?

I have done fasting before. I have not eaten for 2 days, I only drank water.

There are all kinds of fasting stuff, depending on what you are trying to achieve.

well ther's juice fasting and water fasting.

i persoanlly think there are some benefits to juice fasting, esp if you have a juicer (rather than using storebought juices)

Depends on how hardcore fasting you want to go.

There's some that allow no food/water for the duration of the period, though most people who fast usually intake water nowadays.

My goal with fasting is to do a detox sort of thing in January.

I have been going out too much lately, doing too many drugs for my liking, and I would like to slow the fuck down, and clean the fuck up, cuz I dont like it.

So I turn to fasting. Will: I don't know how exactly it helps. Maybe by not eating shit?

Eating only animal fats for a week boosts coolness by 45% and "animal magentism" by 22%.

the only way i've been able to fight off illness is through healthy eating/vitamins/rest.

theres a difference. first off, why "unintentionally"? how does that work? second, when Im going to fast or do some sort of de-tox, im going to do it with mind and body, not just body.

well a detox i think is a good thing. if you plan on juice fasting for a few days, then only eating 'whole food's for a period of time..i thnk that that is a good thing.


don't forget to take some kind of herbal laxitive to 'clean out' before you fast.

tea fasting is also good. i'm sure there's some recipes available on the web. certain teas are great for detoxing the body, so this would be used to detox during your fast.


i've done a 30 hour fast a few times. never made me feel too crappy, just a little tired. it's good for you though. clears out your system...makes your pee run clear.

Ok let me re-state.

Currenltly Im kind of sick. However, long-term I would like to not be as sick, or not get as sick as I get.

As a result, at 26, I feel its time to 1. clean myself up and 2. set up some sort of regular (be it monthly, yearly etc) plan or plan of action to remain healthy.

So, what kind of multis do you take? Im on the not - so - regular vitamin C habit... only when I get sick (too little too late)

do you make some sort of shakes int he morning?

jake, why not stop going out for a bit, stop doing drugs, stop drinking, do a few bikram yoga classes, eat alot of fruit. should clean you right up!

yes i belive a ginger tea and cayenne fast is supposed to be good.


here is the info on juice fasting from the link i posted:

Benefits of Juice Fasting
Look out cancer cells, toxins, built-up chemicals, excess body fat, transformed fatty acids, impacted mucus in the bowel, sickness and disease, here comes the juice!

Radiating with God-given power, ruthlessly attaching itself to anything harmful in the body, giving it the heave ho. A living fuel that takes no digestive energies from the body, allowing the body's entire focus to be on healing and rejuvenation. Packed with vitamins, minerals, living enzymes, antioxidants, phytochemicals, yet low enough in calories to force the body to cannibalize on its filthy waste, propelling you to vigorous physical health and clarity of mind. Sure, there will be periods of toxic crisis, but once you learn not to fear them, they can bring an exciting anticipation that your body is going through a deep cleansing that we call The Babylonian Bends.

Toxins out

1. Eliminate life-robbing food that hinders the body's God-given recuperative abilities.

Nutrients in

2. Ingest nutrients that energize the body's natural regenerative abilities.

For most health conditions, juice fasting is the best method to transform health. Through juice fasting, thousands of individuals have been freed from serious diseases such as cancer, leukemia, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, skin infections, liver disorders, alcoholism and smoking.

This system of removing waste and supplying a full spectrum of nutrients has an advantage over any weight-loss program.

How long should I fast? The Lord will lead you. Do not be afraid if you are taken on a fast involving 20, 30 or even 40 days. Longer juice fasts enable the body to cleanse toxins that have been accumulating in your cellular tissues from birth. The length of juice fasting can range anywhere from three to forty days. Thirty days is the standard therapy used by health sanitariums in Europe.

The amount of juice you drink will determine the intensity of cleansing. Drinking small amounts of juice supplies fewer calories, thereby increasing detoxification. The more intense the cleansing, the greater the discomfort. Juice fasting allows you to have control over the process of elimination. However, when the body enters a cleansing crisis due to toxins in the blood, no amount of juice will eliminate the discomfort. You must wait it out.

Juice fasting can include fresh juice, herbal teas, sweetened with honey or Sucanat, vegetable broth, Barley Green, wheatgrass juice, and supplements helpful to your specific condition.




PS: Jake i have several books on juicing if you wantto borrow them or i coudl send you some recipes.
