Day 3 of My 5 Day Fast by Andy Lee Graham
I'm on day three of a fast as well. I normally take supplements such as magnesium, potassium, Apple Cider Vinegar and green tea, but I forgot yesterday afternoon and I feel like crap today. I'm going to see if I can power through it. Lost 4 pounds but more importantly, I got my blood pressure down. I have to take a DOT physical in a 6 hours and need the numbers to be more in line with the national numbers so I can pass it and start working. Good luck in Europe!
I believe in the future Doctors will put patients on 2 day fasts, maybe more to stop the many problems caused by our rather toxic lifestyles. In a way, when we have surgery, they already do this, food, drinks, beer, chemicals on the skin, and the air we breath, wide range of temperature for example causes high blood pressure, really to me, a self-defense mechanism of the body. Same for cholesterol which protects veins from micro-cracks.
"The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease. "
I read that quote from HoboMd on this Travel Talk Wall, what an insightful understanding. https://www.hobotraveler.com/hobos/hobodmd --- I wish it was not so, but it seems close to quackery, but very profitable to give medicines that interferes with nature, as if we know how to fix our bodies better than our bodies, there are great advances, like antibiotics for infections, and the other 85 percent are mostly profits, Doctors refuse to give the best advice, like give up Sugar, and exercise, I suppose we will put humans in machines that cause exercise to occur through our electrical chemical synapes, as humans are addicts.
