This week for Tyler Talks, I will be discussing how often you should do a water fast.
First up, let me tell you, there can be many discussions that great ancient personalities like Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Pythagoras did with water fasting. There is a bank of new information about water fasting available on the Internet, of which, the documentary called ‘Eat, Fast and Live Longer’ is highly recommended. Scientific research has proved how the brain literally grows and you become more intelligent when you fast. On top of that, recent studies at the University of California Berkeley stated that 3 day water fasts reset your immune system by activating the stem cells and enables you to perform at the optimum level.
Let me tell you first, a little about the theory of sickness. Every day we do a variety of things: breathe air that is not so pure, drink liquids that are not so good, etc., which eventually clogs our body filters, such as the lungs, nose, liver, and kidneys. Over time, our bodies heat up and then the immune system gets knocked down. Fevers actually make the body sweat out toxins and triggers the urge to not eat, a natural fast. Three to four days of water fasting is good in such times. This will help clean out your system.
So should you allow your body to just go through this natural process of getting really sick and going through pain in order to thoroughly cleanse the system? Well, if you are cleaning the filters on a regular basis by doing a water fast, there is no need to get sick.
Another more simpler way than doing a full water fast, is you can also try out intermittent fasting. Essentially what that is, is within a week you do not eat anything for one whole day, and this will allow for the liver and kidneys to detoxify completely and get rid of all the toxins. It is, however, important to really hydrate yourself within that 24-hour span either with lots of water. To help flush out the toxins you can also do a salt flush, an enema, breathing exercises and natural skin cleansing. Diabetic and hypoglycaemic people are often advised not to fast but with the right support it can potentially help their bodies release stem cells, and help repair their bodies.
For an intermittent fast you can start at noon, miss dinner, sleep, miss breakfast and start eating again at noon. This is one of the simpler ways, and if you stay really hydrated, it should not be difficult for you. If you can't do 24 hours, skipping a small meal also helps. I would suggest another way is to drink lots of juices and do a two-day juice fast. For an ultimate cleanse - four extended 10 day water fasts per year is recommended to rebuild, reset hormones and have clear consciousness, energy, and clarity. Following the seasons is a good way to remember.

What’s Hot on Facebook!
Clean the Lymph system
I’m currently working with a few clients that have lymphoma and I thought I would write something out for all of you to follow to whatever degree you choose… By doing this you can avoid so much sickness, low energy, fogginess and potentially disease in the future.
You have more lymphatic fluid in your body than Blood!! We have the circulatory system for building and feeding the tissues and the lymphatic system for all the waste!! So guess what system most people know nothing about? That’s right, well I promise you if you give this system a good “SPRING CLEANING” You will be feeling Great!! Mentally clear, physically strong with more energy and vitality.
#1 The lymphatic system is basically the garbage removal system, so anything the body does not recognize as food or anything foreign to the body (Toxic Chemicals) will move through this system for removal. it’s when this system get’s overloaded that we run into major problems.
So depending on the severity of the Lymph system here is what I recommend
Cut out all artificial colors, sweeteners, oils, process foods and stick to plant based food. Enzymes in Fresh raw plants act like (fresh Fruit, veggies, roots, salads, nuts, seeds, whole soaked grains, smoothies and juices) either raw or gently cooked (Steamed, baked, or lightly sautéed)
Only use personal care products that you could literally eat. Chemicals from even shampoo, deodorant, perfumes and many other items get into the blood stream from the skin. Many of These are known Carcinogens (CANCER CAUSING)
#2 Water- If a pipe has more water than sludge then it can flow… Make sense? So drink enough water to maximize the lymphatic flow. TYLER’s Recommendation (1 liter per 22 kg’s of body weight per day) Drinking more if you Exercise and sweat for close to an hour or are in a hot climate. Adding a Pinch of Salt can help in many ways as well. (Himalayan or Celtic Seasalt are best)
Always start your day with 1 liter of water first (other than oil pulling) and adding Lemon, lime or orange can improve lymphatic flow.
#3 Exercise is going to be your “BEST FREIND” Nothing gets the Lymph system moving as much as Jumping, running, biking, martial arts, sports etc. LIFE IS MOVEMENT!! The more you sweat the better!! This is toxins coming out that the lymph system will no longer have to deal with.
#4 Deep Breathing- This will expand the diaphragm and push the lymphatic fluid through the body. Your circulatory system has the “Heart” as a pump and DEEP BREATHING is the pump for your lymphatic system. Download my 7 rounds of 7 audio and do this 3x a day. Not only will you expel loads of acid and oxygenate your body, but your lymphatic system will be loving you!!
#5 CLEAN YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM!! Most of the accumulation of waste is excess toxins from a backed up colon!! I have developed a 4 day intensive colon cleanse that will do the trick. It has sold around the world for 5+ years with great success and does not use Harsh Herbs that force peristalsis so you won’t be dependent afterward (Just a clean Clacker!!) I will say that for most of you…
You will need to do this 4 day cleanse 3 times to get the results and have it truly work. If you do 4 days each month for 3 months you will know what it’s like for the first time (Maybe in your life) to have a clean digestive system. Did you know after every meal you should have to SHIT within 45 min-1 hour…. and if you don’t this is a clear indication of Constipation!! You will know exactly what I mean after doing this colon cleansing. it’s actually the greatest thing ever to feel a good Pooo coming on 30 min after every meal. This is because the natural signal of eating makes way for the new material to come through. You can purchase it Here:
#6 Sweating in a Steam room or dry sauna. This is a great way to clear the lymphatic system as well. I recommend using eucalyptus oil to improve the lungs and doing breathing exercises while sitting. A good 15 min of sweating will do wonders.
#7 Wear clothes that fit correctly and do not pinch the lymphatic system… Ladies, your bra’s can be a major contributing factor in developing breast cancer and having other lymphatic issues. Pinching the lymph system off is like pinching a hose that is draining a dirty pond, these toxins will accumulate and lead to issues. Pants, belts, bra’s, shoes and even gloves that are to tight can cause issues, especially when worn daily.
#8 Other Therapies: Lymphatic massage with essential oils and draining the lymph physically. Making sure everything is aligned with potentially Chiropractic or Osteopathic adjustments. Acupuncture to make sure the energy systems of the body are flowing as well. Or following my morning Chi exercises used in most Ancient Martial Arts. (I call it my morning shake n bake
#9 Guasha/Skin brushing- So what do you do? Well you used to have to pay $2,000 and come to one of my weekend courses to find out. But here it is for Free!!
Buy the cheapest bottle of triple distiller VODKA and some aluminium free BI-CARB SODA. Mix the 2 in a Jar with a lid till its a putty consistency. Have it next to you the next time you shower. Get in and rinse off. Then turn off the shower and scrub your entire body with this putty (I use a scrub brush or a loofah) I scrub head, face, arms, legs, everywhere.
You might even get an itch in certain spots. I recommend focusing more on those spots and when your done scrubbing. Get back into the shower and rinse off. That's it. Then I recommend getting into the sun for 20-45 min. Depending on how much sun you can handle at first. Then just build up from there. Sun or no your skin will be loving how open and clean it is. Cleaner than it has been in years. This will take the workload off your other organs and keep you healthy and beautiful!!
#9 FASTING: Last But probably the Most Important thing you can do to clean your lymph system is a fast!! This gives the body time to eliminate a lot of stored up toxins and accumulations of plaque. Supported with breathing exercises, enema’s, sunshine and sweating, copious amounts of juices and water will be like putting DRAINO in your Lymphatic system. I recommend 7-21 days on 3 liters of juice and 3-4 liters of water per day depending on the severity of your lymphatic system.
