Intermittent Fasting - What You Don't Know

Intermittent Fasting - What You Don't Know

Intermittent fasting has become a popular practice in recent years, but you might be surprised to learn that there are downsides that can have a big impact on your health in the future. In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share with you the truth about intermittent fasting, including the good, the bad, and the unexpected. Below I am sharing with you a small excerpt from my chapter in intermittent Fasting in Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal to give you a window into why it is problematic and what you can expect to discover in Cleanse To Heal.

"Intermittent fasting is a temporary BandAid that can support someone short term if they’re not sick. We shouldn’t see it as anything beyond short-term support for not-so-sick people, though—and even for those people, to get any of the positives, it needs to be done correctly. If you’re an intermittent faster and you’ve come across this chapter, I’m going to offer you tips so that you can still do your intermittent fasting with the least consequences down the road for your body. It’s best to eventually graduate out of intermittent fasting into one of the cleanses inside this book.

When you’re sick and trying to recover from a chronic illness or symptom that’s impeding your life, intermittent fasting will not give you the long-term relief you need; it can only hinder you, possibly even worsening your illness or condition. While I know so many people are into intermittent fasting, you shouldn’t incorporate it into the 3:6:9 Cleanse, which is specifically geared to cleanse the body. Intermittent fasting does not translate to cleansing. What is someone eating on the other side of an intermittent fast? What’s going on with their health? There are complexities here that make it unwise to combine intermittent fasting with the 3:6:9 Cleanse or any other cleanse in this book.

If you’re still looking for an intermittent fasting option, you’ll find a technique at the end of Chapter 16, “Morning Cleanse,” that you can try separately from the 3:6:9 Cleanse. Keep in mind that when you’re intermittent “fasting,” you’re never truly fasting. Not until you go 24 hours without food or beverages other than water can you call anything a fast. The body doesn’t start its fasting process until the sun has risen twice. So if you’re withholding foods in the morning or for most of the day and you eat a meal before 24 hours have passed, or you drink black coffee or even squeeze lemon into your water within those 24 hours, you stop the process of fasting from beginning. (That’s not to say you should be fasting instead. While water fasting has its time and place, it should be done only with great care and in special circumstances.) Point is, the name of this technique is flawed to begin with, which showcases that the “experts” in intermittent fasting are unaware of how the body’s processes really work."

This is just a small excerpt about intermittent fasting from Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal. There is so much more to learn about it so that you have every opportunity to heal. With the truth about intermittent fasting in your hands, you can make your own choices from a place of empowerment, awareness, and knowledge because you now have answers to why you are sick in the first place or have unwanted weight gain and digestive issues, which is most likely why you started your intermittent fasting journey to begin with. The goal is to not suffer later on down the road because you fell into a guessing game with your health. Cleanse To Heal is about offering you a choice by empowering you with answers. 

Some more topics I cover in the Intermittent Fasting chapter in Cleanse to Heal include:

  • Why some people like intermittent fasting and why they might see some results.
  • The caffeine mistake people make while intermittent fasting that affects their health in multiple ways, including later in life.
  • Why prolonged intermittent fasting can be a recipe for burnout, hair loss, aging skin, sluggish liver, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms and conditions later in life.
  • And more. 

I also provide intermittent fasting enthusiasts who wish to continue this practice a way to safeguard their health against the negative impacts of intermittent fasting done in the way that has been popularized in our culture today. The option I offer for intermittent fasting enthusiasts will offer you freedom that can lead to lasting health benefits that are not temporary, short-sighted, or will come back to bite you later with symptoms and conditions. 

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share much more healing information beyond intermittent fasting, including the truth about the pathogens and toxins that are responsible for chronic illnesses and symptoms, what’s going on inside the body that causes symptoms and conditions to develop, as well as giving you a blueprint for cleansing and healing. You will discover how to cleanse your body of pathogens and toxins, strengthen your immune system and other body systems, provide your body with the hydration and nutrients it needs, heal emotionally and spiritually, and much more so you can experience all the benefits proper cleansing has to offer. You'll also get over 70 healing recipes to help you heal while enjoying delicious foods. Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal is a companion book for you and your family that you can come back to over and over. My prayer is that it will be a loving friend by your side for all the years ahead.
