How to Conduct a 3 Day, 7 Day & 10 Day Fast To Detox, Repair, Rebuild and Restore Health

A fast of 3 days or longer should be conducted under ideal conditions. You should be able to rest any time you feel the toxins passing out of your body. During this time you might feel some discomfort. You should rest and relax quietly until the toxins have passed out of your body. It’s best to be at peace and alone when possible.

This brief period of discomfort will leave as soon as the loosened toxins have passed out through your kidneys, lungs, skin, etc. During longer fasts don’t tell others you’re fasting. Why not? During a fast you must keep in mind only positive thoughts of the cleansing and the renewing miracles happening in your body. Often others are ignorant and uninformed about fasting and project negative thoughts.

Our fasting is such a very personal and quiet time that many years ago I went into the Santa Monica Mountains in California and bought a tract of land in the wilderness of the Topanga Canyon near Malibu. There I built a retreat cabin, identical to Thoreau’s at Walden Pond. In that natural seclusion, Patricia and I enjoy the quiet and peace for our fasting time. If it’s possible for you to get away to some secluded place and do your fast in Mother Nature’s splendor with fresh air and solitude, you will enjoy better results!

There are also some very fine health spas throughout the world where all the conditions are perfect for a restful fast. Inquire at health stores for any located in your area. Many of the Bragg students who fast regularly tell us that they use their vacation as a period of fasting and purification of body, mind and soul. Often they will go to some beautiful spot to rent accommodations and take their fast in seclusion.

I am not saying it’s necessary to go away to fast. Your home is your castle and hopefully you will be cozy and peaceful there. The Bragg family all regularly fast. When any one is fasting, we have great consideration for them. We have an agreement not to ask each other how we feel during the fast. Fasting is so personal that no one can do anything for you during the fast, so it’s best not to discuss it with others. Relax and be thankful for your miracle cleansing.

  1. Hello! I’m so glad that I came across this website just in time while attempting my 3-day fast at the Olympic Valley area of NorCal. This explained everything that I intuitively knew that you guys have been advocating for decades. Thank you so much for this relevant information as I continue on this journey for continued wellness and self-care. Luckily for me, I bought a Pur water filter in time to be able to drink truly purified water to cleanse me out as I go through this process. Thanks again!
