Fruit juice cleanses or fruit cleanses are very effective in alkalizing the interstitial cellular fluid with nutritional electrolyte water-rich structured water. They are very powerful regenerative detoxification protocols for those who are physically not ready for more intense fasting protocols.
During no-calorie fasting protocols, the body first uses up carbohydrate stores (mostly glycogen). The body will continue. burning fat. Fat stores remain to be metabolized for fuel (ketosis). When fat stores have been metabolized past certain minimum levels, rapid autolysis of protein structures (starvation) occurs. As the body continues fasting, it scavenges any and all superﬂuous fat stores, abnormal tissues, adhesions, ﬁbrous growths, etc., which undergo autolysis and subsequent gluconeogenesis. All important organs and structures are preserved during fasting.
Gluconeogenesis is the metabolic process by which organisms produce sugars (namely glucose) for catabolic reactions from non-carbohydrate precursors. Glucose is the only energy source used by the brain (with the exception of ketone bodies during times of fasting), testes, erythrocytes, and the kidney medulla. In mammals, this process occurs in the liver and kidneys.
“Everyone has a doctor in him; we just have to help him in his work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. …to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.” Hippocrates, one of the three fathers of Western medicine.
Dry Fasting Protocol
Dry fasting protocol, dry fasting also called ‘absolute’ fasting, requires one to forego both food and liquid, in any form. Even water, which is usually allowed in fasting protocols. Short dry fast can have amazing benefits to initiate better kidney filtration. Dry fasting is suddenly catching a lot of attention all over the world. One has to tread carefully, as with any fasting protocol, and make sure you do it safely. The first question everyone asks: “Wouldn’t I get dehydrated?”
“The more toxins you clean out from the body, the better your organs and cells work, the less acidic you are, and the easier it is for the body to allow fat loss.” ― Luke Coutinho,
Dry fasting is the most effective way of fasting, because this is the fast you practice every night when you sleep. This is a precious time for the body to clean up brain, body and emotional debris. Therefore dry fasting is an extremely beneficial fasting protocol to cell regeneration and repair, if we do it safely with the right preparations. During a dry fast, the body survives on so-called endogenous or metabolic water, produced internally as a result of metabolising fat tissue.
In dry fasting, we eliminate water as well as food. There are two types of dry fasting – dry-dry fast and wet-dry fast. Wet dry fast is where you brush your teeth with water, take a shower, and wash your face or swim in a waterfall or river and absorb water through your skin. A dry dry fast is a fast where you do not come in touch with water at all – yes, total abstinence.
What makes it interesting is the convenience it offers. Dry fasting could be practiced in intermittent periods, alternate days, periodically, whatever suits you. In the state where your body doesn’t get food or water, it starts the process of utilising everything available for energy, not only for food but also water – that too at the cellular level. This sort of extreme fasting will obviously put your body in distress when you didn’t prepare properly or do it for a too long extended period of time. As it gets more stressed out to find more water and nutritional support. Just extend your daily night fast to 16, 24 or 36 hours.
