Dear Rainbow, fasting per se would not cure Hepatitis C but it would create an environment within which your immune system has a much better chance to achieve this. In most sufferers there develops a dynamic balance between the virus and your immunity, with neither gaining the upper hand. When you do fast, almost one third of your immune system is suddenly relieved from its obligation to neutralize toxins in the gut (from what you eat and the digestive process) so that you get a sudden boost on "the other front" such as in your liver.

Unfortunately there are many unpredictable factors involved, including your nutritional state, your genes, the climate you live in, other co-morbidities and a host of unknown factors. Thus unfortunately there can be no guarantee. But at least it would do no harm and you can keep on repeating the process until it does work.

Please be sure to do elimination activities also when you fast. Sometimes the heat phase gives your immune system the last edge it needs...

Thanks doctor. I am going on a water fast with dry fasts in between and hoping it helps it some.

Gr8 Rainbow! It would be worth your while to keep track of the activity of your disease, for example by doing regular liver function tests and if possible viral loads. It is an unknown if heat or cold would do most damage to the virus and and as both are integral parts of the detox cycle, it would be enlightening to follow up viral loads while you prolong the heat phase for a while and again when you prolong the cold phase for a while..

You should also be careful not to over-nourish the viruses when you do eat. I suggest a "prudent" diet of fresh natural food, as much as possible raw, and definitely no processed "supplement" stuff..

But please also remember that your frame of mind has a pronounced effect on your immune system. Believe in what you do and it will work better.

I may do the viral load thing, for the sake of experiment, though if that will need a doctor I can't do it as I have no health insurance, leading me to alternative methods. I am on day 3 (going 3 days dry then rest water and maybe one more dry)

When getting back into eating I might take one or 2 days juice only at about 400 calories. then go right back into a cutting diet (TDEE -20% ) As I bodybuild etc. I have done the vegan and raw food thing and am frankly not a believer. I'm a believer in calories in - calories out and trying to eat as WHOLE as you can without going overboard. plus getting adequate protein and fat.

Also, can fasting help in curing an arachnoid cyst by any chance? I doubt it but just curious

Please dear Warrior, don't go to any expense on our behalf. There's plenty of academic institutions that can do research. St Petersburg University in Russia has a whole department dedicated to fasting research so do spend your money wisely.

Remember for body building you don't need a lot of protein, and actually you need no animal protein: The most muscular animals in the wild are herbivores! After all, ALL protein comes from plants... if you eat an animal you effectively eat a protein that has already been eaten!

An arachnoid cyst.. well, that's a new one for me also. Thus the only thing I can say with a clear conscience is that fasting will do no harm in that respect.. thus any benefit comes as a bonus. Other cysts have been shown to be resorbed during a fast... as the body "cannabilizes" it self in the face of famine though.
