This is the #1 book on my bookshelf and the one I recommend to all of my clients and friends. No other book is as important a resource because, as the title says, fasting can save your life. There is no faster, smarter, safer or cheaper way to recover from most illnesses. For simple health maintenance, fasting is invaluable as well.
This book teaches why and how to fast, and it will give you the confidence you need to do so wisely and with wonderful results. Millions of water fasts have been conducted over the last 200 years at hygienic centers around the world, millions of lives have been saved, and health has been restored in countless cases.
A fast is a complete rest while consuming only water. During a water
fast, the body is able to detoxify, repair cells, clarify the mind, restore its energies
and invigorate its metabolic functions at an accelerated rate. After a
good fast most people overcome disease, feel 20 years younger and
rediscover their joie de vivre.
Dr. Shelton, the greatest health doctor of the 19th century, illuminates the remarkable regenerative power that resides within our bodies. Drawn from 50 years of his clinical experience in helping over 40,000 people save their lives and rejuvenate their health, this masterful book is packed full of self-healing and life-extending facts. Learn about your self-healing power and how to address disease wisely. You can become your own doctor. You'll avoid the traps of remedies and medical drugging, save a ton of money, shed fear of disease and avoid untold suffering. Fasting For Renewal of Life is a must read and a keeper for life!
