Gray Tasmania, Australia
Lost 26.5 pounds 
On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didnt actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought Id see where it went.

The fast was trouble free and relatively easy so I just kept going.  On day 27 of the fast my family decided to climb a local mountain, I thought it would be a challenge and to my joy I made it to the top and down, a task previously impossible, there was some pain but not as much as expected.  The knees were being healed as never before!

By the end of the fast I was feeling a new man and had lost 26.5 lbs, my pain was gone, I was feeling 10 years younger and really enjoying a healthier diet, so I decided to stay with it.

Fasting Supplements

Excerpt from 


Health can be an extremely frustrating and complicated world. Although there are health products that have value, we believe that God has called us to a life of simplicity and faith. Removing toxic food from your diet and increasing fresh, raw fruits and vegetables will have a greater impact on your health than any product. And, fresh, raw fruit and vegetable juices are filled with every essential element the body needs to heal.

Herbal remedies have been used effectively for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Forty-percent of our present-day medicines are synthetic reproductions of natural substances. If you analyze medicinal herbs, you will find only small amounts of nutrients. The active ingredients are alkaloids or organic compounds that alter the metabolism of the body. God has created herbs to help man heal.

Herbs affect the body in the same manner as medicines. For example, ASA, more commonly known as Aspirin, was synthesized from the natural pain-relieving compound found in White Willow bark, which is a natural medicine that has been used for a thousand years.

Herbs have a therapeutic effect because they either adjust the body's healing mechanism or stimulate a cleansing reaction. Herbs often have a specific effect that can benefit kidneys, liver, thyroid or various organs.

Herbs work in alignment with the body, rarely causing side effects. Chemical medicines ignore the body's natural balance, often resulting in side effects and depositing toxic chemicals that can stay lodged in the tissues for years, causing deterioration of cell metabolism. Medicines are notorious for their side effects, stimulating healing in one area of the body while having a negative effect on the whole system. They work in opposition to the way God intended us to heal.

Chemotherapy is a clear example of this. Powerful chemicals and radiation destroy the cancer, and, for a time, the cancer goes into remission. Unfortunately, the immune system is harmed and often the cancer returns to run unchecked through a defenseless body.

No herb or medicine can compensate for a continual ingestion of dead, toxic, mucus-forming food. Vitamins, minerals, herbs, enzymes, antioxidants, ginseng, lecithin, herbal teas, magnetic therapyany of these products are going to impact a body that is groaning under the weight of a toxic, nutrient-deficient diet. As your diet improves, these health products will have less of an effect on a body that is being saturated with life-giving, nutrient-rich fuel. After health returns, a simple diet, high in raw food, will supply all your nutritional needs.

In our opinion, here are some of the best natural products that can assist in healing. They can be used safely during a juice fast or as part of a healing diet.

Multi-Vitamin and Mineral Supplements
In healing, there can be great value in high-quality vitamin and mineral supplements. We recommend organically grown, naturally derived vitamins and minerals that have a cellular delivery system.

Chlorophyll Products 
High-quality chlorophyll products are excellent because they oxygenate the blood, building its hemoglobin, similar to iron. This increases healing and detoxification. Barley Green juice is an excellent source of enzymes and is high in chlorophyll. Wheat grass is less convenient and less tolerable in flavor, but an excellent source of chlorophyll and trace minerals. Wheat grass and barley juice have unknown medicinal healing qualities yet to be discovered.

Colon Cleansers
 There are some very effective products in cleansing the colon. Psyllium husk, which is the base for most colon cleansers, turns into a soft gel. It neutralizes toxins and fermentation in the colon during fasting, passing it harmlessly through the body. Psyllium husk is not needed in a raw food program because of the abundant soft fibers in fruit. However, there are various herbal blends designed for the recovery and healing of the intestines.

These are naturally present in fruits and vegetables. The most commonly known are vitamins C, E and beta-carotene. Flavinoids have been recently discovered as a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing and damaging free radicals, and are naturally present in vegetables and fruits. One of the most powerful flavinoids is proanthocyanidins. The leading source is found in pine bark and extracts from grape seeds, grape seeds being the best. The proanthocyanidins and gallicesters, which are found only in grape seed extract, enhance the power of vitamins C and E, strengthen capillaries, enhance circulation, improve eyesight, restore skin elasticity and softness, and block blood platelet and LDL oxidation. At the turn of the century, Johanna Brandt, in the revolutionary book, The Grape Cure, wrote that "grapes seem to ferret out the most deep-seated cause of trouble and drive it from the system."

Aloe Vera
Most Aloe Vera products on the market are useless because they have been pasteurized. Look for whole-leaf, cold-processed. Aloe Vera is excellent for the healing of digestive and intestinal problems and has been successful in treating colitis and Crone's disease.
