Historical

“Fasting is the greatest remedy– the physician within.”
Philippus Paracelsus, one of the three fathers of Western medicine

“Instead of using medicine, better fast today.”

Plutarch, a Greek biographer and moralist

“The best of all medicines is resting and fasting.”

Benjamin Franklin

“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

“A little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors.”

Mark Twain, in My Debut As a Literary Person

“Nature heals, the doctor helps!”

Paracelsus, writing about activating
the “doctor inside”, or our own healing nature

“Every fool can fast, but only the wise man knows how to break a fast.”

G.B. Shaw, writer

“Humans live on one-quarter of what they eat; on the other three-quarters lives their doctor.”

Egyptian pyramid inscription, 3800 B.C.

Modern M.D.s

“I believe that fasting is the “missing link” in the Western diet.”

“From a medical point of view, I believe that fasing is not utilized often enough.”

“…. fasting is one of the best overall healing methods because it can be applied to so many conditions and people.”

“Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy. It is nature’s ancient, universal ‘remedy’ for many problems. Animals instictively fast when ill.”
all from Elson Haas, M.D. in Staying Healthy with Nutrition

“Due to [the] effects of fasting, a fast can help you heal with greater speed; cleanse your liver, kidneys, and colon; purify your blood; help you lose excess weight and water; flush out toxins; clear the eyes and tongue; and cleanse the breath.”

James F. Balch, M.D., in Prescription for Nutritional Healing

“Therapeutic [water] fasting accelerates the healing process and allows the body to recover from serious disease in a dramatically short period of time.”

“Fasting, combined with nutritional competence, removes the most significant causes of disease.”

“Therapeutic fasting is not a mystical or magical cure. It works because the body has within it the capacity to heal when the obstacles to healing are removed. Health is the normal state. Most chronic disease is the inevitable consequence of living a life-style that places disease-causing stressors on the human organism. Fasting gives the body an interlude without those stressors so that it can speedily repair or accomplish healing that could not otherwise occur in the feeding state.”

“The job of fasting is to supply the body with the ideal environment to accomplish its work of healing.”

“The body’s wondrous ability to autolyze (or self-digest) and destroy needless tissue such as fat, tumors, blood vessel plaque, and other nonessential and diseased tissues, while conserving essential tissues, gives the fast the ability to restore physiologic youth to the system. By removing or lessening the burden of diseased tissue, including the fatty tissue narrowing the blood vessels, fasting increases the blood flow and subsequent oxygenation and nutrient delivery to vital organs throughout the body.”

all from Joel Fuhrman, M.D., in Fasting and Eating for Health

“Man is the only ‘animal’ who persists in eating when he is sick, even though he may have no appetite and food makes him nauseous.”

“Fasting is a calming experience. It is restful. It relieves anxiety and tension. It is rarely depressing and it is often downright exhilarating.”

Alan Cott, M.D., from Fasting: The Ultimate Diet

“Fasting is the strongest appeal to the human being’s natural powers of healing and self-rejuvenation, on both a spiritual and corporeal level.”

Heinz Fahrner, M.D.

“I often observe in the fasting participants that by four days of fasting, concentration seems to improve, creative thinking expands, depression lifts, insomnia stops, anxieties fade, the mind becomes more tranquil and a natural joy begins to appear. It is my hypothesis that when the physical toxins are cleared from the brain cells, mind-brain function automatically and significantly improves and spiritual capacities expands.”

Gabriel Cousins, M.D. (psychiatry)

“Although beginning my practice in fog-covered medical superstition, I came to the conclusion that only nature can practice medicine.”

“I contend that during illness feeding becomes a burden to the sick. It uses energy that otherwise would be used to fight the illness.”

both from Dr. Edward Dewey

“I must say in all seriousness that fasting when combined with a properly selected diet is the nearest approach to a ‘cure-all’ that is possible to conceive– profoundly simple and simply profound!”

John Tilden, M.D.

“Religious ascetics, who led their lives abstaining from food, came to the conclusion that fasting improved not only their spiritual state, but also their physical condition, and through fasting many diseases could be cured.”

Dr. Inamura Motoo

“I assert that fasting is the most efficient means for correcting any disease.”

Adolph Mayer, M.D., from his book Fast Cures – Wondercures

“Fasting creates a condition of low concentration of toxic wastes in the circulatory system. This is sensed by the plasma membrane of each cell and each cell will then let go of its load of toxic wastes.”

Ron Kennedy,

Sungazing Cures All Diseases

Cultures like Tibetian, Aztec, Egyptian, Mayan and Indian Yoga have reported not only healing benefits of Sungazing to physical illnesses, but achieving super-human abilities such as telephathy and living only on the Sun, without food.

 In 1922, the Imperial Medical College in London stated that solar rays were the ideal food for humans.

 I myself have practiced sungazing for many years ago.  My vision improves, my eyes now are free of wet rheum, I become more calm, caring, creative, productive…, I eat only raw food, I sleep only 4 hours everyday and i have lots of energy, I encounter miracles everyday and most important is that I feel love for all as we are all Light and Love.

Sun gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA is an ancient practice of direct gazing into the sun during the safe hours, 1 hour after sunrise or before sunset.

This magic practice has been rediscovered again by HRM (Hira Ratan Menek), an Indian Buddhist, who has researched and practiced for many years and finally gone breatharian.

From 2002, HRM has been traveling around the world, especially in 2009 he traveled to 80 countries in 210 days to preach about the secrets of sungazing. (If you love to read more, please visit his web: http://solarhealing.com/)

6-9 Months

  • Reduces hunger

  • Develop telepathy

  • Develop super-human abilities

By seven and a half months of looking at the sun (about 35 minutes), desire for food subsides.  According to sun-gazing experts, food is not a necessity to maintain the body, only energy is. In fact, you are indirectly getting the sun energy from food, which is a by-product of sun energy.

As you consume the orginal form of food, by 9 months (44 minutes), all mechanisms associated with hunger including aroma, hunger pains and cravings disappear.  Those who make it this far say that they experience a noticeable ’change’ in the way their brain feels – like it’s “charged up.”

After 9 months of sun-gazing

It is advised that you give up sun-gazing for the sake of eye care and redirect your attention now to the Earth.

But according to many experts, you should use your intuition to judge whether or not to gaze at the sun for the maximum of 15 mins.

Walk 45 minutes daily for a total of 6 days in a week for one year and food will continue to be away from you. After one year of recharging, if you feel satisfied you can give up barefoot walking.

Just Few minutes of Sun light falling on you once in 3-4 day will be enough from then on.

But if you like you can continue walking barefoot on Earth. When the heat in your feet increase, many glands will be more activated and you can gain many kinds of super-human abilities.

For Love and Joy.
