Rational Fasting


Fasting Activates the Youthing Gene

Fasting, particularly Spiritual Fasting, diminishes the physical stresses of excess food, emotional stresses, psychological stresses, spiritual stresses, and environmental stresses, all of which are optimal for activating the youthing genes. Fasting is an accelerated form of calorie restriction.

Gabriel regularly sees evidence indicating an activation of the youthing gene expression. Gabriel observes people experiencing a radical youthing of body and mind.

Green Juice Fasting consistantly and significantly begins the process of reversing chronic degenerative diseases such as: high blood pressure, chronic pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, digestive disorders, Syndrome X and diabetes.

Through the process of fasting, people turn on their youthing genes and reprogram to an earlier stage of their genetic expression, returning them to health. It becomes clear that not only what we eat, but what we don’t eat, speaks to our genes.

————————- Turning On Our Youthing Genes

Foods that we eat, or don’t eat, communicate with our genes, for better or for worse! Foods do not change the genotype, which is the physical structure of the genes… the foods we eat do change the way the message in the genes is expressed.

The principle being that not only what we eat, but how we live and the stresses that we create, directly affects gene expression. The implications of detailed genetic research is quite exciting. One of the most important elements is that we have a potential, under the right conditions, to access all our genetic information from every stage of development, from embryo to an adult. The genetic expression of every cell in our body, is potentially accessible at any time. The significance of this is that through proper living, diet, fasting, lifestyle, exercise and emotional, mental, and spiritual development, we have the opportunity to activate our youthing genes.

————————- Caloric Restriction

Dr. Spindler noted that the caloric restriction (Which happens naturally with Fasting and eating a Vegan Live Food Diet) prevents deterioration or genetic change gradually over life span and reverses aging in a short period of time.

His research, shows that it doesn’t matter what age you begin. Calorie Restriction has an effect of turning on the expression of the youthing genes, and turning off the expression of the aging genes. We all have the full memory of all our gene expressions in all our chromosomes, all we have to do is push the right button to get a healthy expression.

This finding suggests that calorie restriction could potentially reverse aging and improve and extend lifespan.

An important part of Dr. Spindler’s research, is that short-term caloric restriction can turn on the majority of the anti-aging genes. His impression, is that if people lose ten pounds (common during a 7-Day Green Juice Fasting Retreat), regardless of what their weight is before they start the diet, many of their physiological parameters of health will improve. These include: improved insulin sensitivity, improved blood glucose, decreased blood insulin levels, decreased heart rate, improved blood pressure and a potential anti-cancer effect.

————————- Taking people on Spiritual fasts four times per year for many years, I am continually amazed by the power of this healing process. Paul Bragg, one of the fathers of the holistic health movement, expressed this phenomenon simply: ‘‘The greatest discovery by modern man (woman) is the power to rejuvenate physically, mentally, and Spiritually with rational fasting.’’
