A complete fast is designed to free enzymes normally occupied with digestion. Our objective in a complete fast is to free enzymes so that they can heal the body and repair damaged internal organs.
The term “complete fast” is used here to mean no food except air, sun and water. A complete fast will shut down the digestive system and allow the body to redirect enzymes needed to repair internal organs. This is an amazing experience for the mind, the body and the spirit.
Digestion is a demanding process on the body’s resources. It is further exacerbated by the fact that almost all the foods we ingest are dead and have no live enzymes to facilitate digestion. Therefore your body must use its own enzymes to digest the organic material you have piled into your stomach.
Eating live food such as fresh produce requires no internal body enzymes because whole food is alive and carries its own digestive enzymes. Cooking fresh produce of course kills the enzymes.
When you fast, all the enzymes your body would normally use for digestion are diverted to other more productive activity, like rebuilding your liver cells or removing cancerous materials from your lymphatic system or just slowing down the aging process.
It is in this spirit that BBM will do a three day fast for the MLK weekend and invites all members to join either physically or in spirit. We will begin at 12AM Friday and end 12AM Monday (72 hours).
For those new to fasting we offer the following recommendations:
Blessings to you and yours on this MLK weekend,
