Dry fasting is a total abstinence from both food and water for a defined time. Dry fasting in a powerful tool used to fight premature aging, disease and promotes prolonging life. When the amazing healing powers of dry fasting is explained it makes perfect sense. The common belief and misconception is that humans can only survive three days or so without water. You might be surprised to learn that therapeutic dry fasts can last as long as five, seven, nine, even ten days. So what actually happens to the body when you dry fast? The cessation of both external food and water creates a special kind of stress in the body, prompting it urgently to come up with both nutrients and water, initiating the process of making both internally. During a dry fast, the body survives on endogenous or metabolic water, produced internally as a result of metabolizing fat tissue. Unlike any exogenous water, this metabolic water is of superb quality, produced by the hard work of our own cells. It literally erases any negative information imprint which the body had before the fast, allowing cells to experience a kind of a rebirth, as a result. Dry fasting also eliminates parasites and promotes regeneration of healthy tissues. And this isn’t even a complete list of benefits. Every cell the body literally cleans house. Only the strongest and healthiest of cells survive in such extreme conditions, while cysts and benign tumors dissolve as a result of autolysis, a process by which the body sacrifices its sickest cells for its own survival.
