What are the advantages of dry fasting compared to water fasting?
In a dry fast the organism is subjected to harsher conditions than in a water fast. It is forced to restructure itself in order to produce not only nutrients but also water. In the body’s tissues the splitting occurs more quickly and takes place in a short time. The phases of therapeutic fasting, in the case of dry fasting, are the same ones identified for water fasting, but the times are reduced considerably: the excitation phase lasts less than a day, the phase of increasing ketoacidosis lasts from 1 to 3 days and on the third day of dry fast the ketoacidotic crisis appears. The second acidotic crisis, the most curative one, occurs at the 9-11th day. The sooner it appears, the sooner it passes, and the more time remains for renewal and healing of the organism.
During a water fast, exogenous water (water coming from outside) enters the body, and water is the main factor of purification. According to the law of biological expediency, a cell, in this case, spends the minimum of its energy: all toxins, poisons, waste are dissolved and, to put it in a figurative sense, there is a phenomenon of washing the toxins from the cell and intercellular space. During a DF, however, incineration of toxins occurs in their own furnace, in a way. This means that every cell, in the absence of water, triggers an internal fusion reaction, and turns into a mini-reactor. Water is of utmost necessity and cells are deprived of it, and this is a problem especially for diseased and altered cells. In these extreme circumstances what happens is that the strongest, healthiest cells survive, and in order to survive in this situation they must intensify the production of their own high quality endogenous water. This endogenous water is probably of a quality many times higher than that of exogenous water, always according to the law of biological efficiency. A cell consumes a lot of energy and consequently the resulting product must, in terms of quality, correspond to the effort invested. Here we are not dealing with the human mind, which can be mistaken, but with a natural process that overseas each stage of development and aims to ensure the continuation of life. During a dry fast the replacement of the old “dead water” takes place with “living water” of superior quality, endogenous water, synthesized by the organism itself.
Many patients report that dry fasting is better tolerated than water fasting because of the lack of hunger. This is not surprising. The fact is that the exogenous water and the body’s own water are very different. When the organism receives water coming from the outside, it has to rework the molecules, erase the useless information, structure it and transform it into “its” molecules, having the properties of the organism itself. To do this, as well as for the digestion of food, the body is forced to spend a certain amount of energy and time. With DF all these processes do not take place, and in this sense it is a more complete practice as it provides a complete rest for the organism. If no food enters the body and no heavy (“dead”) water, the blood does not receive harmful substances and has the chance to be constantly cleansed by the organism. The same blood composition is repeatedly cleansed through the filter systems and thus becomes perfectly pure. During a DF practice the blood purifies all the superfluous substances and the blood plasma becomes transparent like glass, everything is re-harmonized, including the coagulation factors. The DF in this sense purifies the blood more completely than a treatment of blood cleansing, hemodialysis or haemabsorption.
The anti-inflammatory effect of dry fasting is much more powerful than the effect achieved with a water fasting practice. This is because inflammation cannot exist without water. Inflamed areas swell. Micro-organisms, such as microbes and viruses, multiply can only in a sufficiently watery environment. It follows that a water deficit is extremely counterproductive for the inflammatory process. With a DF external water is missing, therefore pathogenic microorganisms immediately find an unfavorable environment. Thanks to the dehydration established by DF, the cells of the body and the pathogenic microorganisms undertake a very strong competition for the appropriation of water. The cells of the body, in their home field, easily manage to seize the water from the microorganisms and not only that. In DF mode the body not only synthesizes endogenous water, but can also acquire it from the air through skin absorption. This is because during a DF the skin stops secreting and shifts to an absorption mode. Healthy and strong cells receive an extra dose of energy and water while the sick ones, viruses and bacteria cannot do it. Microbes, viruses and worms die instantly without water.
During a water fasting practice, to reinforce the detoxification process, special treatments are used, such as enemas, hydrocolonotherapy, Turkish bath, sauna, etc. During a dry fast, these treatments are not needed because the body triggers its own unique mechanisms, which neutralize poisons and toxins. This does not happen in any other form of fasting. During DF the toxins burn in their own furnace: every cell, in the absence of water, triggers an internal thermal reaction. The result is a sort of extreme and immediate destruction within the very cells of all the waste, superfluous and pathological elements. Each cell temporarily transforms into a mini- reactor and the internal temperature of the body increases. This change in temperature may not even be detected by a thermometer, but during a DF the patients feel it as an internal heat, “a fire” or chills. The temperature is an important part of a series of defensive reactions. From experience we know that with fever all toxins are eliminated; poisons and even tumor cells fully suspend their activity. This process accelerates the healing. By reacting with a fever the organism causes microorganisms to slow their growth.
Slimming effect: during DF in the patient’s organism receives neitherfood nor water, so there is no external energy supply. The organism is forced to produce energy and water endogenously, i.e. within itself. For this reason, unusual chemical reactions begin to occur within the organism and metabolic processes are modified. For example, less muscle tissue is lost compared to adipose tissue. During a water fast, muscle and fat tissue are reduced roughly in equal proportions. During DF, however, the patient acts somewhat like a camel. The reason is that the organism maintains its vital capacity at the expense of reserve fat. The adipose tissue is destroyed very efficiently and does not regain its initial volume. In fact, it is destroyed 3-4 times faster than muscle tissue because fat tissue is made up of more than 90% water, while muscle tissue remains relatively intact. The organism does not suffer because of lack of water, because it obtains the water it needs from adipose tissue. In DF the adipose tissue burns 3 times faster than during a water fast. The burnt fat reserves are not restored, unlike in water fasting. It is possible to observe an early and better digestion of fat deposits, compared to water fasting. After a water fast the adipose tissue is restored more quickly, especially when resuming the same diet as before the fast, but with DF this occurs to a lesser extent. The nutrition based on organism’s own reserves is perfectly balanced. The body takes only what it needs from its reserves, rather than what is artificially imposed from the outside.
Anti-aging effect. Why is the rejuvenation effect on the body during DF greater than with a water fast? The diseased, degenerate and weak cells cannot withstand extreme conditions, so they die and decompose. Which ones remain? The cells with a good organization and a wide and efficient genetic engineering; the ones that are not afraid survive and maintain their functions. This way fasting helps to discard the useless, weak, sick and harmful parasitic cells. They do not exercise their functions and it is better to clear them in time, without allowing them to die of natural death otherwise they would be able to generate offspring of more weak and inoperative cells. After DF the strong cells remain, which, by dividing, produce high quality offspring cells with the same properties of the mother cells.
