However, the article does not draw any distinction between "starving" and "fasting" in the production of ketones, which is the usual mistake made by Medicine.
The artificial production/supply of ketones it states is expensive, but fails to disclose they are free of charge in the fasting state, in the absence of any external nourishment except water, and for as long as the fast progresses; which can be as many as 60 days or even more.
While it is true that the Brain can only feed from ketones rather than glucose in water-only fasting, the remainder of the body will "feed" from fatty-acids produced within the Liver and is Natures way of not only prolonging survival, but also her own way of healing and cleansing the body AND the Brain.
The mention of epilepsy within the article has long been known to have been cured with fasting through ketosis, but then the Medical fraternity are oblivious and/or ignorant of its process.......................
"Every case of epilepsy should be given a long fast as the surest and most rapid means of freeing the body of excess food and of its toxic overload. This will also quickly remedy nearly all the common sources of reflex irritation. Since the most common source of irritation is the digestive tract, nothing can more speedily benefit these patients than a properly conducted fast.
It has been shown that excess nitrogen (protein) increases the frequency of paroxysms in epilepsy; whereas, an increase in bases (alkaline salts) reduces them. One egg added to the daily diet of children predisposed to spasmodic affections will give rise to spasms. When the eggs are removed from the diet the child promptly becomes normal".
If Medicine were take off their "blinkers" and "see out of the box" then the needless suffering of the many would be averted............
"The system we endorse and practice is true---in harmony with Nature, in accordance with the laws of the vital organism, correct in science, sound in philosophy, in agreement with commonsense, successful in results, and a blessing to mankind.".........
