Here is an explanation of what is Active Fasting also known as The Five Step Elimination Cycle so often discussed by The Fast Doctor in the forum.

If you are interested in finding out more about Active Elimination and learning more from the Fast Doctor you can purchase his book: Health Won by clicking here


In a nutshell, at least twice daily, try to perform the following steps in short succession:


1. Dynamic: Try to push your pulse rate up to (200 minus your age);
2. Tonic: WHILE the heart is still beating fast, massage this excess circulation into your skin (the main elimination organ during fasting);
3. Pyrophase: WHILE this excess circulation is still in the skin, activate the sweat glands in a sauna, steam room, hot bath or shower.;
4. Criophase: Cool down your skin to re-ropute the now "filtered" blood circulation back to the internal organs: Cold shower, plunge pool or allow the sweat to evaporate.
5. Stabilization: Now rest until you feel up to facing the next cycle.. or have to go to work. or just go to bed.




Five Step Elimination Cycle developed by The Fast Doctor



you should be able to do the whole cycle at home:

If there's stairs at home, you can run up them a few times to get the blood circulation going. Stop just before you trip over your tongue.

The massage step can simply be rubbing yourself all over with a rough towel, a loufa, brush, a personal massage machine, or if you attach a shower extension to an ordinary water outlet, you can do a type of "Kneipp" hosing down massage on yourself: Train a water jet on your skin in transverse movements starting at the periphery (Hands/feet) and work up towards the core of the body.

Then spending time in a very hot bath or shower will perform the heat phase;

Turning the shower cold or getting out of the hot bath and allowing evaporation to dry you should suffice for the cold phase.

Last step: If there's a bed in your house, you can do the rest phase on that.. otherwise a sofa should be OK..

A professional massage for the second step is of course ideal, but not very practical in everyday life.

Meditating: When your body rebels around the 8th day, it's obviously trying to tell you something.. heed its messages. Remember that a well activated fasting metabolism remains at least partly active for several days after you broke the fast so it "restarts" really easily. I actually consider the resumption of a fast less than about 10 days after a previous one to be a continuation rather than a new fast. Checking for ketones in the urine proved that the "switch" happens a lot earlier under these circumstances.

So one or 2 days per week, plus 5 or 6 weeks per year, gives you over 80 fasting days per year.. that's enough for maintenance. I use longer fasts much more for specific healing of diseases and the short intermittent ones for "maintenance" or a "service" of your vehicle: Your precious body.

Thanks for posting this. It is always a good reminder. I think this is a good practice whether or not you are fasting and it's very easy to do just before your shower every morning, well incorporating the shower into it.

Thanks for re-posting this. I have a question/clarification. The other day, while doing an elimination cycle, I had done the increase heart rate, skin brushing, but then, as I had been having very sore/achy muscles & joints, I ended up doing a hot bath for the heat portion, & didn't want to get out as it felt do much better! I stayed in the hot tub for at least 25 mins before getting out to do the cold part. Would that invalidate the whole cycle? Is there a time limit for moving from step to step?

If you did the first 3 steps, dear Sailor, you have achieved the bulk of what we try.. the last 2 are more of cosmetic importance (preventing varicose veins, etc.) and are not critical. Thus your omitting the cold to go directly to the rest is almost as good.. but do try for example to just jump through an ice cold shower and get back in the bath, you'll be surprised at the difference it makes!

Speed boxing. Isolate your core or rotate, whatever you prefer. then do explosive fast punches up, to the sides. To the front. The faster the better. And if you are able to do that with dumbbells, even better.

Excellent advice Shant, thank you for that. Bear in mind, Squazy, the function of the exercise component is to generate redundant circulation that can be divertredd to your detox organs during massage. So it really does not matter how.. physically swimming is the best but any activity that achieves this goal is good.

Here is some more information re the Five Step Elimination Cycle taken from another thread:


I have often seen chronic diseases resolve during a fast, sometimes quite dramatically. This includes chronic Lyme's disease. The benefit is further enhanced by hydrotherapy (elimination) cycles, in particular the pyrophase (heat step) as an increased body core temperature also suppress microbial enzymes and make our peroxidases more active. Peroxidases is what your white blood cells use to make hydrogen peroxide, which is what it uses to kill cancer cells and germs.

The only problem with rubbing the skin when sweated is that it can irritate the skin if not done gently.

Ideally you should massage the deep tissues and not just rub the skin.. plus, you should do this before the sweat phase.. if you did sweat during the exercise phase it would be wise to dry it (with say a towel) before the massage phase.

Thanks. The issue is that the skin that was sweated and dried with a towel holds moisture anyway.

Sure Shant. The skin always holds moisture unless you are mummified. But if you dry the visible, external moisture your skin should be more resilient to the abrasion of massage. Personally I prefer underwater (water jet) massage.. during which the entire skin is immersed in water and totally wet.

Shant replied the topic: Re: Five Step Elimination Cycle
:).. I'm saying that if elimination cycle is done after an intensive exercise, the skin is warm, pores open and some sweat breaks even if the visible sweat has already been removed with a towel. The recommendation is to massage the skin when HR is super high. My HR gets super high only if I perform a super high intensity cardio for at least 10 mins.. and I break in some sweat.
Guess I either won't follow the guidelines regarding recommended HR or I'll just get over it. Jet massage would be great but..

Thanks.

Not super high, dear Shant, just increased so that there's some excess available to be diverted to the skin.

That's great news. I've started to believe that performing these elimination cycles is very helpful so recently I've been doing them religiously at least once a day :).
Anyway, today I did a press massage when I was dressed. It did the trick. And a few sets of burpees actually do increase my HR above at least 150.

Thank you for "inventing" these 5 steps.

Anyone having good advice on how to massage yourself during this cycles? i use skin brush but that is mostly massasing the skin, not reaching the tissues

Lol. I knew you'd ask some day...

I think I once talked with Andre about manual lymph dranaige.. check out these instructions:

messageboards.makemeheal.com/tummy-tuck/...ructions-t83949.html

I'm lazy to follow this so I, too, do dry skin brushing and then proceed to some super-fast press massage with fingers (especially legs).

Dear Super, brushing the skin is actually quite adequate as part of the cycle. The idea is to get the circulation into the skin, where the sweat glands are.

Some people use vibrating massage machines on themselves also. And Kneipp employs water jets.. at roughly body temperature a high powered focused shower can do the trick.
