The Ageless Adept defines 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.
Here are a few tips to help you optimize your extended water fast!
► Get Rid of Parasites first
Your fast will be more effective–and you may experience less cravings–if the worms in your system aren’t controlling your behavior!
► “Nourish first, Detox second.”
Your body will be calling on reserves during the fast, so it’s best to make sure you have an abundance of necessary vitamins, and minerals.
► Use the “Stages of Fasting” info graphic
Print out Stages of Fasting and read several times a day before, during and after your fast. Download here
► Use good-tasting water
Water that tastes good will be more inviting. This is a very important thing you’re doing for your body. Spend the extra money!
► Don’t buy food before the fast
Be sure to schedule your final shopping days so you don’t have a lot of fruits and vegetables on hand and spoiling while you fast. (You may be tempted to eat them, you know, “so they don’t go to waste!”
► Avoid temptation: get out of the house!
Hanging around the house can get boring. You may find yourself tempted to munch on something just out of boredom. So, avoid the temptation by getting out of the house if possible. Of course, you should stay inside if you feel dizzy or nauseous, but otherwise, remove yourself from familiar temptations!
As an individual unit of Nature, your body is coded for healing, reversal, regeneration, renewal and rejuvenation. Cuts heal. Broken bones mend. Fevers kill germs. Yes, provided with the raw materials it needs, and left to its own intelligence, the body is designed to heal, survive, and thrive. Everything you currently define as illness is actually healing taking place. Diarrhea, colds and coughs, for instance, are all efforts by your body to cleanse and heal itself.
*Note: age reversal using the clean cell practices does not require belief in a deity. Universal order exists for all.
We’re even told by experts that the body’s organs renew themselves regularly, and that the entire body is completely renewed every seven years.
You might ask, “If the body is coded to heal, why am I and everyone I know deteriorating?” You’ll answer that question by the time you finish this book. First, we’ll explore how the body deteriorates.
In the book, A Clean Cell Never Dies, I state:
The reason [Herbert] Shelton and others can create a “stages of fasting” guide that predicts with almost pinpoint accuracy what will happen to you during your fast, is that after guiding over 4,000 people, he realized the process is the same! Even a body damaged by years of abuse and neglect still retains its healing code.
If there were not this consistent, reliable, predictable thread of order in the universe, things would fall apart. If everyone’s built-in code didn’t function in the same way, Nature simply couldn’t survive. A seed that fell into the soil, wouldn’t know what to do! Birds that got cold in the winter wouldn’t know where to go! Nature is, indeed, foolproof, and perfect! You are in good hands!
The body will be helped to function according to its coding, if you follow the S.W.E.A.T. philosophy and formula
NEXT: What is S.W.E.A.T.?
There’s a formula I first encountered in Arnold Ehret’s Mucusless Diet & Healing System that holds V=P-0 (Vitality = Power – Obstruction). The degree of vim, vigor and youthfulness you experience (i.e. your vitality) is not only a function of your nutrition (power), but also a function of the degree of obstruction present in your system. In other words, the more blockage that exists in your system, –caused by toxins and accumulated, uneliminated matter in your colon, intestines, blood vessels–the less vitality you will be able to manifest. This explains why even several days–even weeks–into an extended water fast, you’ll experience tremendous surges of energy even though you’re not eating any solid food–fasting allows the body to purge itself of toxins and other obstructions.
I’ve modified it slightly to be V = P2 – O where P2 is “Potential Power”
Now, as is usually the case with universal truth, the VPO formula has applications to many other areas of life. So, expanding Ehret’s formula to living your passion and purpose, we can postulate that
Value = Passion * Purpose – Obstruction.
In other words, the value that you ultimately bring to the world is a function of your passion MINUS any obstruction (internal or external) that you allow to block your flow, whether those obstructions be your fears, your perceived limitations, or other people’s expectations of you.
Similarly, when it comes to your vision, we find that
Vision = Position * Perch – Obstruction.
What you envision for yourself and your future is function of where you stand–your position or perch–MINUS any obstructions that block your view.
Ageless Adepts only eat real food. If you can’t put it in the ground and grow a new one, it’s not real food!
Ageless Adepts don’t eat anything in cans or anything with preservatives.
Ageless Adepts know that the purpose of food is to survive. You eat food for survival and for health. Sometimes you eat things you don’t like in order to be healthy. You’re not a child. Grow up.
Ageless Adepts don’t compromise. If there’s no vegan restaurant where you’re vacationing, you eat fruit, prepare your own meals, or fast!
Ageless Adepts don’t eat anything that has a face, that has a mother, or that can run away from them.
Ageless Adepts don’t put anything ON the body that they wouldn’t put IN the body.
Ageless Adepts follow the S.W.E.A.T lifestyle formula.
Ageless Adepts know that a clean cell never dies, so they strive to keep their bodies clean through colonics, coffee enemas, sauna detoxes, and fasting.
Ageless Adepts know that “You may have freedom OF choice, but you don’t have freedom FROM the consequences of that choice.”
I’d like to challenge you to a little mental exercise. What do you think about when you think about healing a disease? In other words, what do health, healing and cure look like to you? If you’re like many people, the images that come to mind include: orange bottles with white labels, multi-colored pills, white lab coats, masks, high-tech machines in sterile rooms, chemotherapy, intravenous drips and the hair loss it often causes, hypodermic needles, patent-infringement cases and thousands of dollars in cost.Is this the way it has to be? Is Nature that flawed and imperfect? Is that the best our society can do as a solution? Or, is there another way?Is there a way to heal and cure, reverse and rejuvenate an individual’s body from deterioration and illness, without the use of harmful chemicals, radiation, invasive surgery, bodily dismemberment, mutilation, side effects and hair loss?Following is a collage of the images most people call to mind when thinking of healing:
I suggest to you, however, that in the search of a better belief system, and in the quest to reverse aging, become fit to breed or simply live a healthy, long life using these practices, that you re-imagine what healing and cure—in reality—look like.Perhaps healing and cure really look like this: Sunshine, clean air, clean water, direct contact with the earth and soil and access to real organic food without fear of patent infringement, all achieved for pennies. Here is that image:
