FOR LONGER DRY FASTS 3+ DAYS (preparation)
As the dry fast progresses urine ph will drop and continue to drop until you break fast. (Ketone bodies are acidic in nature.)
ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS alkalinize urine before and again after TO PROTECT KIDNEYS AND AVOID KIDNEY STONES. This is easily accomplished by drinking 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 8oz water.
*IF you foolishly skip this step don’t cry about getting a kidney stone or having kidney pain in the group as you were STRONGLY WARNED TO ALKALINIZE and dissolve all acid formed crystals in urinary tract before hand.
WHY USE BAKING SODA FOR PREVENTING KIDNEY STONES OR KIDNEY PROBLEMS?
Because it works and fast!
I recommend raising urine ph to an 8 NOT 7 as in study before long dry fasts and once again after.

Conclusions: Bicarbonate therapy remains an attractive option for the treatment of radiolucent kidney stones. The presence of hyperuricaemia or hyperuricosuria appears to influence the success rate. Further prospective randomised studies are needed to identify the most tolerable and effective treatment regime as well as the optimal duration of treatment. Dual-energy CT may hold the key to identifying patients most likely to benefit from treatment.
I recommend “charging” cells with trace minerals via Fulvic acid. Use either Shilajit or Fulvic mineral source. Without electricity you have no energy. WATCH light bulb demo: HERE
I always utilize before hand to jump start the process SUPERTONIC HERBS that activate AMPK and inhibit mTOR and promote autophagy like what’s in Interstellar Blend and Thermogenesis.
The body heats up the longer you go because the cells are incinerating junk via autophagy. Thirst may become intense. I recommend ICE BATHS & ICE SHOWERS to cool down and keep going. You will find this blissfully rejuvenating.
The more informed you are the less fear you will have and the greater resolve to not quit.
Skin tenting purportedly begins at 15% body water loss. At 7 days I had zero skin tenting still. NOBODY in group is in danger of dehydration in 72 hours. Nobody. Unless maybe you are in Death Valley, CA in 120+ degree heat sitting there sweating.
****IF YOU GOT FAT YOU GOT WATER.****
So have ZERO FEAR of going 3 days your first time. Alkalinize and launch!

BLOOD PRESSURE CONCERNS
Be not overly concerned by blood pressure irregularities; the body as it acclimates itself to survival conditions corrects itself the longer you go. It may fluctuate up and down the first 3 days but by day 4 and onward it stabilizes. Blood pressure and resting pulse without fail on all extended dry fasts (beyond 3 days) goes down and this is very positive. Have no fear or worries; perfectly natural process.
BUT WHAT ABOUT GLUCOSE REQUIREMENTS ON A DRY FAST AND THE LOSS OF MUSCLE ???
Won’t my muscles be broken down to create critical glucose required by certain organs and red blood cells (that don’t have mitochondria and can’t run on ketones) through the process of gluconeogenesis? Good question. If you employ THERMOGENESIS which has gluconeogenesis inhibitors in it you will prevent muscle wasting, also glucose CAN also be created from and here’s how it works: HERE
So the real source of energy of the eukaryotic cell is water, so the sacred role of glucose as an energy source now breaks into a thousand pieces. We ended up saying that if the energy source was glucose, diabetic patients would fly.
The human body with four billion years of evolution is far beyond our ability to abstraction, but in origin the body is relatively simple: everything comes, everything is soaked, and everything is governed by photosynthesis, both in plants and in us.
MELANIN THE HUMAN CHLOROPHYLL
“The main source of energy of the eukaryotic cell is water, not ATP. The profound misconception that food, glucose or ATP are the main source of energy has its basis in the lack of knowledge of the hitherto unknown capacity of melanin to split the water molecule . Until today, the fact that human tissues have the capability to take hydrogen from water—the energy carrier by excellence in the whole Universe—arising from the splitting of water, as plants do, was totally unknown before our work.It was unthinkable that an expensive chemical reaction, from the energetic point of view, such as water dissociation, that requires 2000˚C in the laboratory to take place, might occur at room temperature in our body. The sole possibility seemed berserk. However, our studies researching the three main causes of blindness allowed us to detect the hitherto unknown fact that melanin is the “human chlorophyll”. This amazing compound absorbs photonic energy and transforms it into chemical energy.”
GLUCONEOGENESIS FROM FAT
“That sugar can be converted into fatty acids in humans is a well-known fact. The question whether the reverse direction, i.e., gluconeogenesis from fatty acids, is also feasible has been a topic of intense debate since the end of the 19th century. With the discovery of the glyoxylate shunt that allows this conversion in some bacteria, plants, fungi and nematodes it has been considered infeasible in humans since the corresponding enzymes could not be detected. However, by this finding only a single route for gluconeogenesis from fatty acids has been ruled out. To address the question whether there might exist alternative routes in humans we searched for gluconeogenic routes from fatty acids in a metabolic network comprising all reactions known to take place in humans.
****Thus, we were able to identify several pathways showing that this conversion is indeed feasible.****
Analyzing evidence concerning the detected pathways lends support to their importance during times of starvation, fasting, carbohydrate reduced and ketogenic diets and other situations in which the nutrition is low on carbohydrates. Moreover, the energetic investment required for this pathway can help to explain the particular efficiency of carbohydrate reduced and ketogenic diets such as the Atkins diet.”
HEAT ON DRY FASTS
Sauna, hot tub, sun exposure, steam room, intense exercise causing profuse sweating NOT ADVISED on long dry fasts— over 24 hours. Under 24 hours it can be used to speed up ketosis induction.
Worry is misuse of your imagination; a form of self sabotage. Willfully replace all worry with joyous optimism and courage. Say to worry, “And if that perchance happens I will face it too gracefully and skillfully as I have many obstacles and challenges in my life thus far; I have no fear or worry. I am a fighter until the end. Now skedaddle worry! BE GONE FROM MY MIND. “
