may increase due to toxins in the lower intestine.
The blood vessels that draw nutrients from the
colon are very close to the nerves of the spine.
Back pain often decreases after elimination of the
toxins. Back exercises also can relieve some pain.
A cold pack also will help. Using the enema kit
will be the best remedy.
Waste passes through
the lungs which are an eliminative organ. Brushing
the tongue with a tooth brush, using dental floss
and rinsing with mouthwash will reduce bad breath.
These may develop
from a toxic buildup in the mouth. Unhealthy
bacteria increases between the teeth. The tongue
becomes coated with waste. To stop cankers, gargle
with sea salt mixed with water several times
daily. Dabbing the sore with tea tree oil or
vitamin E quickens the healing process.
Mucoid is the
perfect food for viruses. Toxins weaken the immune
system. When large quantities of toxins and mucus
are in the blood due to a fast, they can cause a
susceptibility to colds. To fight a cold, continue
fasting to eliminate the mucus. Reduce the liquid
intake and drink lemon juice. When your body is
clean from mucus, you will never catch a cold
During fasting the
body conserves energy. The heart pumps slower and
blood pressure lowers. Standing or moving quickly
from a resting position will cause the blood to
flow to the legs. For a few seconds, the brain may
not get enough oxygen, causing blackouts and
dizziness. To stop a blackout get down on one knee
or sit. Lowering your center of gravity will
instantly stop a blackout. Blackouts are more
frequent during water fasting.
Fruit juices have a
laxative effect which is more pronounced after
water fasting. It can be stopped by using the
enema. Using psyllium husk during diarrhea will
help regulate the system.
Toxins can cause
muscle tightness in the neck and shoulders. This
can result in tension headaches. Massaging the
neck and shoulders will help relieve the tension.
The herb Fever Few, which is available in health
food stores, is well worth trying.
The muscles may become
tight and sore due to toxin irritation. The legs
can be the worst affected as toxins accumulate in
the legs. A self massage, hot baths, stretching
and exercising will help to release the toxins.
When waste is released too quickly by the lymph
glands, some of the toxic overload is taken by the
liver and secreted with bile into the stomach.
This causes nausea. Drinking water or carrot juice
will dilute the bile and toxin mixture helping to
flush it from the system.
The elimination of
toxins can irritate damaged nerves. Exercise will
relieve tension. Use quarter slices of avocado to
slow the fast.
The skin may become
oily as rancid oils are purged from the body.
People with problem-free skin may have a few days
of pimples or boils. A pallid complexion is also a
sign of waste in the blood. When cleansed of mucus
and toxins, the skin will be healthy, soft and
Tiredness is normal
during water or restricted juice fasting. If the
tiredness is too much, increase the quantity of
sweet juices like melon and carrot juice.
Include bananas and
avocados when juice fasting to balance the blood
sugar level. Toxins in the blood and reduced blood
sugar levels may cause a weak heart to labor. Like
any other organ, the heart needs nutrients, a
toxin-free environment, and time to heal. (refer

Do not juice fast
unless you use bananas and avocados to balance the
blood sugar level. (refer to How to Get Well

Fasting can irritate
damaged kidneys due to the amount of toxins they
filter. Try short juice fasts of 3 to 5 days
before progressing to longer fasts. Avoid
high-protein meals, refined flours, commercial
oils and fats. (refer to How to Get Well by
The liver can become
toxic due to abuse. If the liver is badly
degenerated, cleansing must be done in stages.
Start with short juice fasts and lead to fasts
over five days. Avoid heavy proteins, refined
flours and fatty foods. Eat meals of fruits or
vegetables between the fasts. (refer to How to
Get Well by Paavo Airolea)
There is no such
thing as being too old to fast--it is exactly what
the body needs to feel young again. Shorter fasts
are recommended to start. Assess your physical
state as you proceed. If juice fasting becomes too
intense, bananas and avocados will lessen the
intensity by slowing the cleansing.
