One of the most important things I do everyday to constantly cleanse my body, is stopping eating by 7 P.M. So my body gets at least 15 hours every day to cleanse & repair. Stopping eating hours before going to bed, helps your sleep better, deeper, and allows repair by not having to be digesting food. First thing I do in the morning is drink my water to cleanse & hydrate. I add greens and/or minerals also. I also stay hydrated throughout the day, and don't drink with my food (I drink about half my body weight in ounces a day). Staying under 50 calories, keeps your body in a fasted cleansing state.
For a longer, deeper fast, here is what happens...(women that are still going through their cycle shouldn't go over 15 hours, but can go longer days 1-10 of your cycle, it is also recommended days 20-28 to not go over 12 hours, I personally always do at least 15, but I'm used to it)...
4-8 hours... blood sugar starts to fall
12 hours... all food in digestive tract is now burned. Around 13 hours you should see some autophagy
14 hours... body is running out of glucose & ketosis may begin but may not be based on your adaptation stage
16-18 hours... fat burning ramps up & autophagy goes up dramatically
24 hours... glucose is all gone & the body will start to rely on ketones
36 hours... autophagy goes up by 33%. Major cleaning mode. Total body cleanup.
48 hours... autophagy will go up even more, 30% more.
72 hours... autophagy has limited.
At this point your body may be doing a major cleanup & you may experience some stronger bowel movements that may take longer than usual. Trust in your body, stay calm, relaxed & look forward to a healthier body. Muscoskeletal changes... your body is starting to get stem cells healing the body. It can be slightly painful.
96 hours... intestinal stem cells start to max out. A reset of the immune system, a reset of the microbiome, human growth hormone.
120 hours... optimal stem cell & optimal growth hormone & immune system & microbiome reset
When you are done fasting, it is very important to start with light foods that are easy on your body. I finished an 111 hour fast August 2023... it was amazing, not easy, & I detoxed emotions also. I did black coffee & matcha green tea once a day with some drops of monk fruit sweetener besides water. I also did minerals in my water or did a piece of celtic salt on my tongue & then drank my water...this helps your water get into your cells. I sprayed magnesium spray on my armpits & stomach once or twice a day also. I also rested a lot during this. Always fast smart, safely, & listen to your body. Many people will say... I could never do that... you have to have a why & focus on your why.
Benefits of fasting...
~Your body starts to use & produce stem cells
~Pain goes away
~Ketones... your body is looking for ways to adapt to burn your fat
~Energy Diversion... now that you're body is not focusing on breaking down food for energy it can put that energy into healing
~Fat burning hormones get ramped up
~You will retain muscle because of the stem cells
Castor Oil Packs (for the outside body)
Benefits... maximize detoxification, reduce stress & support adrenals, reduce inflammation, move the bowels, improve the microbiome.
I use these organic cloths to do my Castor Oil packs. These are for external use. (When you put your castor oil on your cloth, allow it to sit for 30 minutes). Here's what I do.... On your clean cloth or spread straight on your stomach (or a combination of both) over your organs, I do approximately 3-6 Tablespoons of Organic Castor Oil, place the cloth over your belly over your organs, then you're going to put a piece of wax paper or an old clean towel over the cloth and a heating pad on the wax paper or old clean towel. I turn it on my highest heat for 1-2 hours. You can just put oil in specific places where needed, castor oil is amazing. Make sure you have something to keep you busy and a drink you can reach easily nearby. Also make sure you clean your hands really good after putting the castor oil on, and don't get it on anything but your skin and the cloth, castor oil is very thick. You can also use these packs on the thyroid if you have thyroid issues, for breast cysts, or troubled joints. These castor oil packs help with bloating, constipation, help alleviate pain, inflammation, & swelling. You can reuse the same pack for at least 3 months. Store your fabric in a glass container with a lid and if it starts to dry out you can add more castor oil to it to re-hydrate. Women do not use this during pregnancy or if you have heavy bleeding with menstruation. If you want to wash your pack, use hot water, baking soda, and natural soap (I use Sal Suds).
If you want an all in one place to get your castor oil pack supplies that stay on overnight without using heat, go here.
Make sure you take plenty of pure water to drink during your bath... try to stay in at least 30 minutes up to an hour

cayenne pepper...I like to take it in a capsule but you can sprinkle it in
Optional garlic...fresh crushed, garlic powder, or garlic capsules..I like Dr. Mercola's fermented black garlic

This detox also kills parasites...I started out doing 5 days & now once a week. I also don't have a gallbladder as I got it out when I was 21, (wish I had it back) so it puts more strain on my liver.
I also take 1 capsule of cayenne 2-3 times a day, & 1 capsule of ginger 2 times daily at the same time as I take cayenne minus one time... The benefits of cayenne are huge.... including high in vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E, boosts immune system, improves vision, bones, anti-cancer properties, reduce migraines, prevents blood clots, removes toxins, lowers blood pressure, reduces hunger, boosts metabolism, heals ulcers, improves digestion, and much more.
