Please suggest.

Hi

I have carried out two 3 day dry fasts in the past, and one of 5 days duration, during which I experience no detox symptoms and actually find the process smoother than that of water fasting.

Later today I shall be embarking on my first 7 day dry fast and I have a question regarding contact with water. On my 6th day I need to attend a function for a short time, which will require me to wash my hair and shower as it is important that I look my best - how much will this adversely affect my dry fast? It will be a one off occurrence.

Thanks very much

Dear Becky, thank you for your input.

Do bear in mind that the climate you fast in has MUCH more effect on your metabolism than the drinking or not of water would. Here in Africa right now, it is so hot that a dry fast would be suicide due to the dehydration from sweat.

Your body produce a few litres of water per day when you burn fat to stay alive. There's no difference between water molecules so wherther you drank it or produced it the effect is the same.

Of course there are psychological effects from tho allowing anything other that air into your body and I also prefer that during my weekly 30-60 hours of fasting.

But please do not fear water. It is not the enemy. If you are really thirsty, don't resist just for the sake of being "purist". And if yo bathe or shower, your body will only absorb water if it really desperately needs it.

As long as you take no TASTE, you are fasting. Anything more than that is trivial. It should not distract you from the bigger picture.

Many thanks Andre.

I have one final question - before entering into a dry fast, would you advise carrying out an enema or having a colinic irrigation in order to clear the colon?

I NEVER recommend "colonic irrigation" as I beleive that is reserved for people with an anal fixation. It is downright unhealthy.

IF (aind that's a big IF) you wish to flush your colon at the onset of a fast, I recommend using a Macrogol solution that you take - like any natural organism - by mouth, not by rectum! That way you flush in the correct DIRECTION and you flush the whole intestine, not just the bottom part.

Enemas can be good for people with impaction but other from that I see no function in them either.

I have written several posts on this topic, so if you wisn to learn more about this, just follow the threads in these forums.

Happy fasting!

I find Dr Fast's book incredible, revolutionary almost. Maybe the only reason is not a world wide best seller is that it probably needs more marketing.

Great comment Borota, I was going to ask you your opinion. Do you mind if I quote you with such an upbeat comment it will help boost sales.

Actually if you would be willing to write a short review I can add it to the book's description and it will be valuable to other potential buyers especially as it will be a genuine review.

He has not written any other books as far as I know but he has many in the pipeline.


I'll write a review! It does my head in every time I hear someone say when they are ill, " Id best eat and keep my strength up". Gah! We've been so misinformed by capitalism - The whole world needs buy and read that book.
