The Grapes fasting Benefits 

Paracelsus, one of the three fathers of Western medicine, is quoted as saying, "Fasting is the greatest remedy--the physician within." 

Hello my beautiful friends -we are back to the traditional yearly summer detox with  organic grapes, if you don't have organic make sure you rinse them in water and sodium bicarbonates for at least 15 minutes to deactivated the chemicals.

Grapes fasting is simple to follow -all it takes is about 1.5–2 kilos of organic red grapes per day, and water for further hydration.

But first a short explanation on fasting and grapes' healing properties:

Fasting is an ancient healing remedy. The early great philosophers, thinkers, and healers used fasting for health and as healing therapy. Hippocrates, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Galen all praised the healing power of fasting as a tool to rejuvenate the entire body and heal what needs healing.

 Grapes are amongst the highest in alkalinity, hydration, and astringency of any food on the planet!. Since grapes are an alkaline substance, they help to move backed up toxic waste in the lymphatic system and out through the elimination channels, i.e kidneys, skin and colon. Inflammation, pain, skin issues, cancer, fungi, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms are the result of toxins in the body.  Grapes are also powerful at removing old waste from the intestinal tract, as a backed up colon further adds to inflammation and disease. 

It is recommended to carry the fast as long as 10 days, however this time the fast is lasting 3 days and, you are welcome of course to extend it if you wish. 

Gut health 

Our digestive systems are vital to the health of our entire body, as this is where we digest, absorb, utilize, and eliminate our food, especially on something as powerful as grapes, is one of the best ways to detox, regenerate, and heal our digestive systems..

Signs of acidic body

headache, weight gain, numbness, high blood pressure, feeling tired and depressed, bloating, allergies, heaviness in the legs, diminished eye-sight, skin rash, looking old and tired, sluggish blood circulation.

When blood is acidic the blood cells stick together forming agglutination, thus diminishing the surface of proper intake of nutrients and oxygen. This pattern also causes the red blood cells to move slowly creating problems with blood circulation.

the Grapes fasting- Benefits

  • The grapes fast consist of only red grapes with seeds organic if possible. Resveratrol is the key element that according to research is responsible for his healing properties. It also contains potassium which is excellent in lowering acidic levels, as well as blood pressure. Its richness in Flavonoids and antioxidants helps the body fight inflammation as well as improves the immune system.
  • The antioxidants in the grapes protect the skin from the harmful effects of the free radicals and reverse the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. Grapes contain vitamin C that is necessary for the formation of collagen, a fiber-like protein that helps retain skin elasticity and reverses aging.
  • The grapes are rich in Iron which help charge the body with positive energy and improves the blood circulation. it also helps repair cellular damage. The strong acids in the grapes act as antiseptic agents which rejuvenate the gum and keep our teeth healthy. It is said to cure addiction to alcohol and caffeine.

      Low intake of potassium has been linked to increased risks of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke 

How much to eat?

Stock your refrigerator with red grapes 1–1.5 kilo per day.

Have plenty of pure water and lemons available.

Have Sodium bicarbonate powder -you will need it to wash your grapes especially if they are not organic.

It is recommended to have half a kilo three times a day- I eat when I am hungry and drink plenty of water to hydrates my body.

Morning -day 1-2-3 

On rising drink, two glasses of water with lemon and 1/2 spoon of sodium bicarbonate powder -this will help to normalize your PH levels during the detox. Since your body will be flushing acidic residue in access, your kidneys will need the sodium to ensure they are not being overly toxic.

Drink this tonic 1–2 per day.

wait 30 minutes

Eat your Grapes meal

Take Probiotic 1–2 per day to enhance elimination

enjoy a meal every 2–3 hours

Drink lots of water -it is important to hydrate your body for easier detoxification.

Signs you are detoxing

As the poisons are stirred up and eliminated through the various channels of the body (respiratory, skin, urine, bowel movement, eyes) you may first feel an aggravation of the symptoms you already have -including constipation, nausea or dizziness, soreness in the mouth, swelling in various parts of the body, pimples, strange body odor. These symptoms will gradually disappear as your body eliminates the toxins out.

If you are constipated I recommend 1 tsp of Flax seed oil or Olive oil. 

Make sure you drink water with lemon throughout the day. 

Ending the Grapes fast 

you will certainly need here some self-control -do it gradually.

Try drinking a large glass of water with 1/2 spoon of Sodium bicarbonate- it helps alkaline your channels of elimination through the kidneys.

on day 1 add some fruits 1–2 such as papaya or apples

on day 2 add some vegetables preferably 2–3 with lemon and some oil and continue adding each day more food.

The idea is to keep your diet clean and healthy as a lifestyle, not just a short-lived diet. Continue with your fast for as long as you wish- I recommend 5–10 days at a time. however, when coming out of the fast do it gradually. introducing each day a new food. keep it simple and as raw as possible.

My experience -Day 1 2019

My first day seems easy, its already 8 pm and I am really not hungry or craving anything. I am drinking water with lots of lemons and that is for today.

It's strange, but I am feeling that my pants are loose- is that the placebo effect ? well maybe but I certainly feel a slight difference, I am less bloated.

Day 2

I am sensing a slight headache. but overall feeling more energetic than usual. I feel less bloated. So far I have eaten 3 small Grapes meals and drank lots of water.

Day 3

So far doing good- I have a slight headache, but I feel very light and energetic. My bloating went away and my waistline is getting smaller -I love this part very much. There nothing like feeling your stomach bloated ..

Minor pain and aches in my arm (I have an injury there).

Day 4 -5-6

  • Not a great day for me  -got up feeling quite tired , I could not fall asleep at night and kept tossing around. I have done numerous detox in the past so I am quite familiar with the feeling- the body aches and there is this restless feeling.
  • woke up feeling slightly dizzy, and at first, could not read well, once again I am familiar with that experience as- your eyes detox too, and before you see cleared it gets actually worse.
  • had a spoon of oil to get my bowels moving.
  • Need to stay positive so I am meditating more each time my negative feeling are surfacing.
  • Feel lighter — no idea how much weight I lost, will post pictures of before and after Day 8

Day 7- I am feeling hungry but energetic and yes, much lighter.

I know I am detoxing because my eyesight today, in particular, is diminished- I don't see as clear as I usually do- It is one of the reasons why I am continuing my fast despite the difficulties. I know I need to continue.

So my mind is sharper, still feeling slightly constipated, so as I advised earlier a spoon of olive oil or flax seed oil can really help.

DAY 9 -my last day

Still on grapes until 1200 pm, and then, green salad with Tahina spread and plenty of lemons.

The last two days have been difficult. physically but mostly emotionally. I am feeling down and restless- some old feelings are stirring up to the surface, and the worse of all- my minds keeps working and I am having a hard time to quiet it down- even with meditation.

Sleepless, but finally fall asleep at 2 am.

My weight is down by 2 kilos and I am down 1–2 sizes on my pants which feels pretty cool.

Some of my symptoms disappear- I am breathing better and my headache is gone.

My circulation down my legs seems to improve as my digestion is clearing up/ obstruction in the digestion track may cause energy disturbance down towards the extremities (legs), as I am working with Yamuna body rolling balls, I can feel the heat releasing down from my pelvis to the lower legs. the balls are not enough- the fasting cure blockages and stagnation in the intestines- this is my greatest release.

My eyesight is getting worse -I know from experience that I need more detox to clear my vision- this is one of the reasons why I am continuing on a strict vegan diet for few more days, however, at this point, I am speculating that 1–2 weeks more -are needed.

inflammation is down- my gums feel much better.

Blood pressure back to 110/70 my normal range -down from 130/80.

My drink to cure acidic condition- help the kidneys function better and lose weight. In one glass of water place 1 tsp of sodium bicarbonate and juice from one lemon and drink.

This is for now Blessing
