Fasting for Health and Highness

Title: Fasting for Health and Highness

Ken Albertsen

 

A person‘s body is continually trying to cleanse itself. One of the healthiest things a person can do is to facilitate that process. That‘s what a proper fast does.

You may wonder what the word 'highness' is doing in the book's title. It's a rarely used word that is usually heard in relation to royalty, as in; 'your highness.' Though the analogy could apply to all people in an altruistic way, the word 'highness' in this context refers to 'a higher state of consciousness.' Latter parts of the text will elaborate on aspects of that, and show how 'getting high' need not involve drugs – and a properly done fast will induce a natural high.

Sample Text

1. Evolving

Micro flora and fauna migrate on to and in to our bodies every day. Even after a shower, human skin plays host to millions of micro-organisms. The accumulated net weight of tiny flora and fauna within the body is several pounds. We‘re about seventy percent water, the same percentage as water to land on the surface of the planet - and the water in our bodies has roughly the same degree of salinity as ocean water. Life is interconnected. Most micro-organisms are benign, some are helpful, and some can be harmful – especially if they get out of hand. Pathogenic organisms multiply where they can. They aren‘t nefarious, and they don‘t scheme to infect, they simply increase their numbers wherever conditions allow, and do so as unthinkingly as a rock tumbling down a hill.

A well-functioning immune system has specialized cells that find and disable pathogens. To back up a bit, the first thing immune system does, even during its fetal stage within the womb of its mother, is learn to discern between itself and all else – which we can call 'non-self.' This process can be called ‗self-recognition.‘ Rare abnormalities in that process yield such debilitating ailments as 'auto-immunity disorder' – where a body's immune system attacks its host body, i.e., itself
