What are Some Fasting Health Victories?



Asthma and Respiratory Problems

Fasting is well documented in literature to answer asthma and other respiratory problems in many, dare I say almost all, people who practice fasting.  This includes allergy based asthma.  


One interesting form of fasting that I noted in researching fasting and lung issues was something called alternative day fasting (ADF).  In this form of a fast the person eats three normal meals in a day.  These are well balanced meals and not gorging ingestions.  Also there are no between meal snacks.  On the next day there is a pure water fast.  By those who are strict adherents, this becomes a lifestyle change.  However it can be done for a specific period of time, maybe a week, month, three months, etc.  


One man reported that he cured his lifelong asthma with ADF.  He does it as a lifestyle now.  His pattern is Monday fast, Tuesday three meals, Wednesday fast, Thursday three meals, Friday fast.  On the weekend he more normally eats like everyone else but in moderation.  Everything starts back up with the evening meal on Sunday.  


Let us say you ate your evening meal at 6 p.m. on day one.  Then you would water fast until at least 6 p.m. on the second day, or the next supper.  Day two is a water fast until the evening meal.  [Notice if you start the fast after supper, you eat supper everyday.]  This pattern is repeated for the duration the ADF. For a little extra benefit you can water fast until breakfast on the third day.  [Of course to fit your lifestyle you can start your water fast on any meal and continue until the next day’s same meal.]


This sounds very similar to the sunrise to sunset fasting which was practiced by the ancient Jews at certain times of the year.  The difference is that it becomes a pattern rather than a seasonal event.  


For any respiratory problems it may be a pleasantly surprising experiment to try fasting, be it intermittent fasting, alternative day fasting, or a long fast.  

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
