DAY 8 OF MY WATER-ONLY FAST
April 24, 2020:
4:00am 125.2lb (Starting weight back on Apr 16: 139lb)
Despite the inclination to over-indulge during these times, one thing you might want to consider during lock down is to do a fast. If you were on this list last year, you might recall that I did a 17-day fast during March of 2019 (my longest ever). Well, it’s that time once again! I’ve been on an extended water-only fast (that’s right, no food, no juice, nothing but water) for the past 8 days. My last solid meal was at 12noon on April 16, so at 12 noon today I’ll be heading into DAY 9. Here’s an update.
The purpose of the fast is to give the body time to rest from the constant work of digestion and to focus that energy instead on detoxing and removing the toxic and pathogen load on the system.
▪ I have vivid dreams that are easier to remember hours and even days afterward!
▪ I feel like dancing, or singing, or running, or boxing!
▪ I feel a heightened sense of calm
▪ I can easily remember names, situations and events from the past are coming back to me that I haven’t thought about in years.
▪ My “mental bandwidth” & creativity has increased. I have to keep 3 or 4 files open at the same time to keep up with the ideas for books, videos, articles etc. that are coming to me
▪ I’ve become suddenly neater! My theory: “As within, so without.” Once the pathogens and toxins are gone from your inner world, you might find and sustain the urge to get your outer world to match. You might find yourself channeling Felix Unger more so than Oscar Madison–with a strong desire to straighten things up, organize, clean, scour, scrub and disinfect your surroundings.
▪ Warm feet (i.e. improved circulation)
▪ Waste basket accuracy improves (It’s an odd thing, but my accuracy throwing balled up scrap paper into the wastebasket has improved! Go figure!
▪ It might be counter-intuitive, but my strength is still up. I can still lift TWO 5-gallon water bottles (one in each hand) up a flight of steps to my apartment as I did yesterday.
Yesterday was actually a “weak day” and I spent almost all of it in bed. Today, however, as I move into STAGE 3 (Days 8 to 21) according to the “Stages of Fasting” infographic (https://www.passionprofit.com/cgi-bin/new/redirect.pl?LL=stagesoffasting), I woke at 4am with high energy, completed the latest “Streets of Saipan” video (see https://www.youtube.com/passionprophet) , wrote this blog post and have a list of more things to accomplish today! I’m constantly amazed at just how on-point the Stages of Fasting is. It predicts with uncanny accuracy and specificity just what you can expect to happen in your body as you move from one stage to the next.
So, while you over-indulge on Youtube videos, reading, binge-watching your favorite series, take the time to read up on doing an extended water fast! What you achieve just might be the best thing to come out of quarantine!
“Good Health is the Best Immunity!”–The Ageless Adept
Even before the Covid-19 scare emerged, I’d been working on a daily anti-parasite protocol to be published in the upcoming book, Worm War I & II. Coincidentally, this protocol has all the elements to reduce the body’s toxic load while enhancing the body’s immunity. So I call it my “Cleancell Optimized, Vitality & Immunity Daily” (or COVID, for short!) Download a copy here:

Since even the organically-grown fruits and vegetables we have access to are nutritionally inadequate, the Ageless Adept recommends nutritionally enhancing your meals. Here’s how
Your answer to this question will determine your success implementing the Ageless Adept’s protocols and practice.
Now, however you wish to refer to the natural order–whether as nature, the universe, God or the end product of an evolutionary process–the question remains the same (I’ll refer to it as nature): Is Nature perfect or flawed?
Is Nature perfect, or did it have to wait for linear-minded men in lab coats to come along to improve it?In the book, The Man Who Lived Forever, the adept questions the seeker about Nature and God:“Seeker, if you were God, perfect, wise and omnipotent—would you create a world and a system of survival that required Ph.Ds to master? Or would you make it foolproof, so that even the least of your creations could negotiate it?“I guess I’d make it simple,” I replied.“And the truth is, Seeker, it is simple. God is not complicated. Complex, vast, infinite, perhaps, but not complicated. Nature is a simple, closed, self-contained system coded for survival. In other words, everything Nature needs for its own survival is already built right in. It’s a ‘batteries included’ universe, if you will.”

Let’s bring it all together with a definition of “real food!”

Excerpt from A Clean Cell Never Dies:The cures or therapies that exist as part of the Clean Cell Protocol are nothing more than variations on these 5 themes:1. sunlight2. water3. earth4. air5. time(SWEAT, for short)All individual therapies, no matter how odd they may seem to you, are simply variations on these themes. Here are some examples:
How to replicate sunlightThe sun’s ultraviolet rays are antiseptic and can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts, molds, and mites in air and water, as well as on surfaces including our skin. It converts cholesterol in the skin to Vitamin D, and regulates bodily processes. Infrared rays improve neuralgia, neuritis, arthritis, and sinusitis. Sunlight regulates hormones and bodily processes, stimulates the pineal gland, and normalizes heart rate, blood pressure and respiration. It increases oxygen to the blood and thus improves muscular endurance.Deficiency or insufficiency of natural sunlight and vitamin D has been associated with the following conditions: adrenal insufficiency, Alzheimer’s, allergies, autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, cancers of the colon, breast, skin and prostate, depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), diabetes Type 1 & 2, gluten intolerance, heart disease, hypertension, Metabolic Syndrome, infertility, sexual dysfunction, learning and behavior disorders, misaligned teeth and cavities, obesity, osteopenia, osteoporosis, osteomalacia (adult rickets), Parkinsons, PMS and psoriasis.Don’t let "conventional wisdom" scare you away from soaking in the sun! Soak for at least one hour each day; shorter duration for people with paler, melanin-poor skin.There’s no substitute for real, direct sunlight (i.e. there should be nothing between you and the sun except air; glass blocks the sun’s infrared rays). However, here are variations to compensate:VARIATIONS: infrared saunas, dry saunas, physical activity to encourage sweating, vitamin D supplementation.
How to replicate waterSimply drinking more and cleaner water can jump-start your body’s cure of itself and immediately increase your energy. Purified, fluoride-free, chlorine-free, room temperature rain water would be best. Spring water is good. Reverse-osmosis, filtered water is good. Fill a container with half-gallon to one gallon each day and drink throughout the day.VARIATIONS: drinking more water, hydrotherapy, purified water, ozonated water, oxygenated water.
How to replicate earthIn our modern world, and particularly in what Bob Marley called the "concrete jungle," it is possible for someone to be born, live and die without their feet ever touching the actual soil of the earth.Think about it. They are born in a sanitized, concrete hospital. They are carried into and transported in a car that touches asphalt. They live their lives in high-rise apartments, and walk to school in shoes on cement sidewalks. They travel to work in steel trains. They live their entire lives–every waking and sleeping moment–separated from the earth hundreds of feet above the ground. And if, on that infrequent occasion they seek natural settings free of concrete or asphalt cover, they wear socks and slippers and sandals and shoes that separate them from the actual living earth. And, to take a few steps back in time, remember, they were even conceived and began the very instant of life in the womb of a woman who may never have touched the physical earth herself.For many people, years can go by without them ever experiencing the grounding and rejuvenating effect of actually connecting to the earth.What effect do you think that might have on the world view, thought processes, bodily functions, and even basic humanity of an individual, family or society who has never touched ground—people who are not, you might say, "grounded?"In electrical terms, to "ground" an object means just that, to connect it to the earth. When an electrical appliance operates, for instance, it will build up an electrical charge. The earth naturally attracts excess electrical charge and dissipates it so that it does not accumulate and cause harm to the user. You ground something to keep it functioning properly and so it doesn’t cause harm to itself or to others. I’ll let you ponder, the significance of that statement as you consider that the radiation and unnatural magnetic fields of electrical appliances, power lines, cell phones/towers and x-ray scanners are all around us.VARIATIONS: Walking on the beach, touching soil, and even eating clay all keep you "grounded." Also: magnet therapy and clay baths.How to replicate foodJust because something can be chewed and swallowed does not make it real food. I define real food as "unmodified, raw, enzyme-rich nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables eaten in as close to their natural state as possible." Boiled carrots, or carrots from a can are not the same as raw carrots. If you can’t put it in the ground and grow another one, then, generally speaking, it’s not real food.VARIATIONS: Eating real food, organic produce, raw food, super foods, supplements and vitamins.
How to replicate airYou can go without water for a while, you can do without sunlight, you can even do without soil/food for many days. However, without air, you die in seconds. Therefore, since air is arguably the most important element, when looking to heal a specific condition, rejuvenate and grow younger, I suggest starting with air. As stated, there was a time when the oxygen content in air was as high as 50%. Now it’s less than 20% and even lower in major cities. The more you can do to introduce oxygen into the system, the more optimally the body will function.That’s why one of the first things I suggest to my friends who seek my advice is to start taking daily supplementation with food grade hydrogen peroxide H2O2 actually increases oxygen uptake in the body.VARIATIONS: H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide), DMSO, Ozone therapy, MMS.How to utilize timeNature has its own pace for healing. The way to activate Nature’s healing pace is to stop eating–to engage in an extended fast–to allow the body’s healing code to take over and to heal itself. There is no way to replicate time.Each aspect of the SWEAT formula is explored in more detail in A Clean Cell Never Dies. Now, however, let’s explore one particular concept within the “Earth” domain–and that is, the concept of food.
One of the first and easiest additions you can make to your diet is to include sprouts and fermented vegetables. Here is a quick demonstration on how to make kimchee (also written kimchi) at home:
