Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

If we are to get these poisons out of our bodies we must fast. By fasting we give our bodies a physiological rest. This rest builds Vital Force. The more Vital Force we have, the more toxins are going to be eliminated from the body to help keep it clean, pure and healthy. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Over30 years ago I bought a copy of Paul Bbragg's The Miracle of Fasting in a Thrift Shop for 25 cents. This was my introduction to fasting which led me to other books on fasting by Dr. Herbert Shelton. Soon after I developed an abcess in a molar that was pretty painful and my face was very swollen

. The next morning I went to my dentist who told me he could not do anything until the swelling disappeared and that I would probably need a root canal. He sent me home just like that, he did not prescribe anti-biotics or anything(for which I am thankful as you will soon see why). On the way to work I started thinking about all the good things I had read about fasting. And I thought " This is a perfect opportunity to see if fasting really works." I figured that I had already fasted about 16 hours since I had no dinner the night before because of the pain. And I said to myself "Today is thursday and I already have a headstart on fasting, why don't I just go home, call in sick and fast friday saturday and sunday and see what happens" Well, by sunday morning the swelling and the pain had disappeared. I was so happy that I decided to continue fasting which I did for 32 days. You may think that I was crazy but remember that I said above that I had read Dr. Herbert Shelton's books on fasting and I knew what signals to look for that would tell me to stop the fasting.

Since that time I have fasted a number of times and I presently fast every thursday.

About 25 years ago I became a vegetarian for humane reasons. I thought I was healthy even though I used alka-seltzer frequently which I thought was normal according to the Tv ads. I began to worry and I did a lot of studying which eventually led me to Raw Food eating and have been so since then.

After reading the last review, I had to speak up on Paul Bragg's behalf. I have spent several years now researching health and healthy living and I have come to the conclusion that this is the only book one needs for vibrant health. It covers not only proper fasting, proper diet, and proper exercise, but also proper breathing, proper posture, proper rest, and proper thinking. Dr. Bragg was writing about healthy living long before anyone else in this country was. His work has stood the test of time and the more science learns, the more it corroborates his work. More importantly, his own life is the most compelling proof of his work. Dr. Bragg died at 96. Unlike most 96 year-olds, who languish in rest homes, Dr. Bragg died in a surfing accident. After the autopsy, doctors said he had the body of an 18 year-old. Don't let the exhortative writing style fool you. This book is as scientifically rigorous as any you will find.

I first bumped into this book as a teenager and now at 45 years old and after working as physician and research chemist and reading a few other books along the way about health and healing, I still find this one to be one of the best.

I know fasting as a source of healing is not exactly the fashion and is not promoted by most modern physicians but let's put things in perspective: In the late 1980's, physicians still printed serious debates in the New England Journal of Medicine about whether or not aerobic exercise was beneficial or not. The big worry was if the exercise would cause hypertrophy of the heart muscle and lead to shortening of the lifespan. Now we know that aerobic exercise does more to prevent heart attack than any diabetes, cholesterol, or high blood pressure pill on the market (from the same New England Journal).

The point is that very simple practices that cause dramatic improvements in health may be slow to proof. There's no big pharmaceutical company to sponsor research on fasting. Research (I now conduct clinical trials) is very expensive and so any real research on fasting would probably need to be sponsored by the NIH. All this to say, don't throw it out just because Blue Cross doesn't pay for it and because there's no slick advertisement on TV....FASTING WORKS.

And...this is the best introduction to fasting on the market.

Warning: don't overdo it. Always check it out with your doctor first (if you have type I diabetes, you could kill yourself with this book). I'd be very slow to undertake the long fasts recommended in the book. If you're of normal weight, one day per month is fine (with maybe a 3 day fast 2 to 4 times a year). If you're obese, you might start with one day per week. Again, I'm not your doctor.

I'm a professional natural hygienist and have fasted several times 7 to 14 days. I've coached many people along this journey and have read just about all the books on fasting...even one by Dr Dewy written in 1900. I'm writing this review to rebuttal what the last person said about Paul Brags book vs. Dr Joel Fuhrman's book. Yes indeed Joel Fuhrman does write a great book and it's very factually based! However, this does NOT mean Paul Bragg's book is not a good choice. Paul's book is geared for the beginner and an excellent place to start when staring on the journey of fasting. As far as Patricia Bragg stating non factual things in the book...that's just not true. Paul Bragg lived to the age of 96 and would have gone longer had he not been in an accident. And he dedicated his life to wellness. He also practiced what he preached which is a lot more that I can say for a lot of authors who write fasting books. When I was the executive director at a wellness retreat I would have people come to the store and ask for the best book in the store. I would unequivocally point them to "The Miracle of Fasting" because it addressed the seven dynamics of wellness giving the person a broader scope of wellness. These 7 dynamics are... rest, exercise, water, air, food, sunshine and of course fasting! So, with this said...please understand that both of these wonderful books have a specific purpose. If someone who read Paul Braggs book wants to get deeper...then I would surely suggest Fuhrman's book!
