  • Fasting cured my cold

    I started getting cold symptoms the day before yesterday. My whole family had been bad with it over Christmas- sore throats, slight fever etc. So when I woke up feeling like crap I decided to fast and now I'm feeling fantastic again!

    Nice one. I credit fasting with keeping away the nastier symptoms of the bug that's circulating here - everyone else has been knocked for six, I've just had a slight cough.

        When I was younger and reading vege sites I heard about fasting. A few dry fasts of no food, no water and quick showering only cured my ears oversensitivity to wind and cold, which was like migraine. The longest dry fast was 3.5 days
        I will be normal. I will be NORMAL again
        Yeah!

          I've never done a dry fast. If I IF I usually consume water and some black coffee. I've green juice fasted for as long as ten days before with miraculous results. Fasting rocks.

              Curing kidney disease was the main one. Also killing my candida overgrowth in a matter of weeks when I'd literally tried everything else.

                Whoa, that is actually quite miraculous.

                  It absolutely is. I thank my lucky stars every day.

                    How do you guys figure a fast “cured” your cold? I’m interested in hearing how that would work in an irrefutable science-y way. I fast almost daily and haven’t gotten one but I just attributed it to good luck.

                      Don't really know but I imagine it's got something to do with cutting off the virus's food supply.

                        I don't know the first thing about microbiology but I seem to remember that viruses don't eat, as they are not live organisms (in the same way we are at least) I at least remember they don't really "eat"

                          One thing that could be is that if our bodies don't have to worry about processing food, they can combat the virus? though I'd imagine our bodies are better at multi-tasking than that. I meant it more as in a priority basis "deal with food first, deal with virus later" ... but again, anybody that can shed light on this please do. I'm skeptical for now.

                            IniQuity, I agree. Viruses don't eat. They just invade cells and use the cell's protein-making system to make more of themselves. But I suppose they must rely on a certain set of conditions in the host cells for that to work. Maybe fasting throws that off? Concentrates something in the cells?

                            Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition

                              My guess has always been that without having to 'concentrate' on digestion, the body has more energy for fighting off invaders... but that could be bollocks.
