Yes, I only lasted three days, not the five days I had planned. I terminated my grape fast early to ease the overpowering detoxing symptoms. The lethargy and all over tired feeling was too much. I felt unproductive. By the end of the third day all I wanted to do was curl up and sleep. Understanding it was all just a strong detox happening did not make it any easier to deal with. By the end of day three I was tired of being tired so decided to stop the grape fast.
The entire fast was not a waste. The long term benefits from the three days I managed to do have been fantastic. My energy is up and I feel more productive. I was having a pain issue in my knee and leg which has greatly cleared. It was all good. Just a little too good for this girl.
I did this grape fast for two weeks back in 1997 with no ill effects at all. I don’t believe the grape fast caused a lack of B Vitamins as some would suggest. My system needed to do more detoxing and I was not in a place to get past the initial strong detox which often accompanies a good fast. The first few days can leave one sleepy while the body works into the detox mode. I was not in a place to be able to just go back to bed and let the process complete.
Question: Why can’t I use the grape fast to clear my cancer? I understand that grapes are an anti-cancer food.
Answer: It sounds like you are looking for a “silver bullet” against cancer. There really is no such thing. There is no one thing that will clear cancer from the body. Healing is a process of rebuilding the system while cleansing the toxins out.
The grapes do assist in fighting back the cancer but do not assist the body as it clears the waste (die-off) out through the liver and kidneys. (This is done by liver flushing and kidney flushing) The grapes also do not rebuild the degraded systems of the body which are the reason for the cancer in the first place. Healing the body of a major disease is always a matter of “cleanse and feed” Clear out the disease while rebuilding the body so a healthy state can be maintained once the disease is cleared.
Important to understand: Curing cancer is not done with one cleansing herb or procedure. It is a matter of stopping the habits which created your current state of health while juicing and cleansing to heal and rebuild the broken down systems of the body (physical, emotional, & spiritual).
