Frederic Patenaude : The Greatest Cure on Earth | 2.3 GB
“I must say in all seriousness that fasting, when combined with a properly selected diet, is the nearest approach to a ‘cure-all’ that is possible to conceive- profoundly simple and simply profound!” John Tilden, M.D.
This 5000-year old practice has been used by hundreds of doctors around the world to eradicate high blood pressure, normalize body weight, lower LDL cholesterol, protect you against heart disease, and possibly combat some cancers.

Imagine if a medical company discovered a single drug that could treat hypertension, eradicate type-2 diabetes, dramatically improve or even cure autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus), a number of skin conditions (such as psoriasis), eliminate migraine headaches (even those that last for years), improve depression symptoms better than anti-depressants.
Imagine if this drug could also increase your lifespan, renew your immune system, reduce all symptoms of inflammation, help you recover from a cold or the flu better than any other home or pharmaceutical remedy.
If on top of it, taking this drug would also lead to the most profound sense of mental clarity, we would be forced to call it a “miracle drug.”
Even better, what if this drug were free?
And best of all: what if there were no adverse long side effects to this therapy?
“Therapeutic fasting accelerates the healing process and allows the body to recover from serious disease in a dramatically short period of time.”
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., in Fasting and Eating for Health
“In 5000 Years, Modern Medicine Has Not Found a Pill Without Side-Effects That Can Match the Benefits That Can Be Obtained By This Powerful, FREE Therapy.”

The practice of fasting has improved my energy, digestion, mood, and mental clarity.
I’m a health journalist and writer who’s been writing on the cutting edge topics of nutrition and natural healing for more than 20 years.
I wrote numerous books including The Raw Secrets, Raw Food Controversies, and The Sunfood Cuisine.
It’s available to you at any time. It’s a power that you already have inside of you.
The power is called self-healing.
The therapy is called fasting.
“My Discovery of Water and Juice Fasting”
I discovered water and juice fasting at the age of 18, and water fasting is one of the health practice that has made the most profound difference in my life.
I came across water fasting by reading the books of Dr. Albert Mosseri (of France), and Dr. Herbert Shelton (of Texas). These two doctors were pioneers in the science of water fasting, and themselves conducted over 10,000 fasts at their respective health clinics.
In reading these accounts of fasting, I was amazed at the stories of people from around the world who treated various types of health condition using this very simple, yet misunderstood therapy.
Common Health Conditions Helped By Fasting
Headaches, and chronic pain
My initial experience with fasting was a revelation. First, I discovered that it was not that difficult to go without food, as long as I knew what to expect. Secondly, I had more energy and experienced a lift in mood that was better than coffee or any other substance!
Over the years, I’ve experimented with different forms of fasting, including:
Many 3-5 days water fasts
A regular practice of fasting 24 to 36 hours once a week, and other forms of intermittent fasting
A 7 day fast
A long, 23-day water fast
Each fast brought me new insights into the incredible powers of fasting. Each fast gave me different benefits.
I found that regular, short fasts were the best tools I had ever found to find balance, increase energy, improve sleep, eliminate the “blues” or depression.
Longer fasts were powerful spiritual tools that enabled me to go deep and experience more than simple health benefits, but a complete change in my outlook and direction in life. After my 23-day water fast, I took my business from a 40K/year pastime to a bigger enterprise that generated 500K in sales. All of that happened just nine months after my fast!
“I often observe in fasting participants that by four days of fasting, concentration seems to improve, creative thinking expands, depression lifts, insomnia stops, anxieties fade, the mind becomes more tranquil, and a natural joy begins to appear. It is my hypothesis that when the physical toxins are cleared from the brain cells, mind-brain function automatically and significantly improves and spiritual capacities expand.”
Gabriel Cousens, MD
“Instead of using medicine, better fast today.”

“The Amazing Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Fasting”
Treatment of borderline hypertension
No natural therapy has a more potent anti-inflammatory effect than fasting. Multiple animal experiments and human studies proved this.
This study, done by James B. Johnson, M.D. (from the department of surgery at Louisiana State University), put nine overweight asthma patients on a program of alternate-day fasting for eight weeks.
Those asthma patients lost 8 percent of their weight, knocked 20 points off their cholesterol, and improved their airflow by 15 percent, due to less inflammation.
Dr. Johnson said: “There’s nothing out there that would work as well as that, other than systemic steroids.”
“The best of all medicines is resting and fasting.”
Fasting Rejuvenates the Immune System in Just 3 Days
There’s so much hype in the natural health world, where words like “rejuvenate” have often been overused.
But in the case of fasting, we can indeed say that fasting leads to a complete reset of the immune system.
That was the conclusion of Dr. Valter Longo, a researcher who investigates aging and longevity. In a recent study, Longo and his colleagues discovered that fasting for three days or longer lowered white blood cell counts, which in turn triggered the immune system to start producing new white blood cells.
Those cells are a key component of your immune system.
Studies have found that fasting leads to:
increased macrophage activity
increased cell-mediated immunity
decreased antigen-antibody complexes
increased immunoglobulin levels
increased neutrophil bactericidal activity
depressed lymphocyte blastogenesis
heightened monocyte killing and bactericidal function
enhanced natural killer cell activity.
