Fiber drinks while Fasting. Will the Fast still work? What do Fiber Drinks do anyway?

10 04 2013

imagesFasting on either juices or water is usually done for 1 or 2 reasons.  One of the first reasons most people fast is to detoxify.  These people typically do not have trouble taking the fiber drinks of Ground Flax Seed, Psyllium seed, Psyllium husk and Bentonite Clay since they know this fiber drink acts as a “broom” and a “sponge” to sweep away the “gunk” in the 26 feet of intestine that we all have.  

While the people who fast for the reason of “resting their digestion” usually have trouble with even the consideration of taking Fiber Drinks while fasting since they believe that this is not going to “rest” their digestion.  

Here is my rebuttal to this notion that Fiber Drinks interfere with the “resting” of the digestive system.

Firstly, 

Firstly, in order for the intestines to empty properly the stomach must have some “solid” matter in it to “trigger” the rectum to release.  Thus, while fasting, fiber drinks provide this in the absence of food.

Secondly, the intestines are not smooth inside.  The small intestine has valleys & hills created by the “villi” and “micro villi” which are through out all three sections of the small intestine.  The large intestine has many folds through out it and “round” pockets all joined together.  This intestinal anatomy needs fiber to help it to stay clean and while fasting it will do a great job and scraping matter off the walls, plus in the presence of enzymes taken before bed it will do a great job at sweeping away the loosened matter from the enzyme activity.  

      This along with some bile-stimulating herbs will help to get rid of the “goop” that collects on the walls of the colon.  Very important!  This “goo” will stop your liver from functioning properly as well as stop you from absorbing all your nutrients from your food.

Thirdly, fiber does not stop you from “resting” your digestion because it is not being digested per say it is just “passing” through and giving your intestines a workout and helping you to truly detoxify.  The liver dumps toxins via the intestines and fiber helps to absorb these toxins so that they can be eliminated via the bowels.

Fiber as you can see from my comments above is actually quite beneficial for both juice and water fasts.  It is even more beneficial when the ground flax seed, psyllium seed & husk & bentonite clay are taken in conjunction with, Ie. not at the same time during the day, but with enzymes & herbs.  Dr. Bernard Jensen’s cleanse that has been around 20 years or more is a good example of this.  Check out his book: “Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management”.  I usually modify some of his ingredients since some of these names are outdated, but the principal remains the same if you substitute with the same type of supplement in his protocol.

Not everyone has “black” goop, but if you are just starting out and have every eaten anything “white” in your diet…then you will have a certain amount of black goop in your guts.
