Fasting For Heart Conditions
“Heart conditions can be cured by juice fasting.”
I have been juicing sporadically for quite some time, with my Breville compact juicer. I am about 50 – 60 pounds overweight, with mild depression, anxiety, mild to moderate hypertension, controlled by medication. I also have heart palpitations, which the Dr. characterizes as PVCs. They occur once or twice a day, and can last anywhere from half a second to 2 or 3 seconds, during which I sometimes feel like I’m going to pass out, and have to catch my breath. They are very distressing, especially since my younger sister died last year from heart failure. I have worn a holter monitor for 24 hrs, and an event monitor for a week. They found no serious arrhythmias. I have more tests pending.
I have been researching fasting on your site and others for about a week now, and I have decided to do my first fast, in the hope of normalizing my blood pressure, jumpstarting my weightloss, healing my heart palpitations, and improving my energy as a catalyst for a more healthy and active lifestyle.
My plan is to do a pre-fast next week, eating only raw fruits and veggies and juice, and discontinue all caffeine, refined sugars, starches, and nicotine (I smoke a pipe, but do not inhale.)
