The masterfast is a complete protocol with pasteurised grapejuice, herbal tintures, windows of daily and weekly dry fast, kidney tea and enemas. The cooked pasteurised juice has no enzymes, does not activate the digestive system and is fully absorbed by the stomach. The digestive system switches off after 3 days and gets a full break. Masterfast is a way to purge in a controlled way a lot of our obstructions.
Grapejuice combined with lemon juice is such a combo. A little orange juice won’t activate digestion. Further than trying to get the science of it, I gave it a try inspired by other people testimonies and enthusiasm, and now I have my own personal experience as a testimony and I am able to share my understanding of it. A raw juice fast (which contains enzymes) won’t have the potency of the cooked grapejuice. It’s not about nutrition but about plasmatic field interactions. All pasteurized (cooked for 9 minutes) juices from dark berries (grapes, pomegrenate, cherry, blueberries, watermelon, cranberries) can be used with ½ lemon per 1,5 liter and ½ orange or grapefruit per 1,5 liter. For more potency, the lemon juice can be cooked too but it’s less pleasant to drink (the more lemons, the stronger). The pasteurization process potentiates the process: the body is given simple sugar (and zero nutrition) so it focuses on integral dumping. It is an acidic experience and acids are breaking down and detaching obstruction from the body. The toxic mucoid plaque in our GI tract made of old dried fecal matter, parasites, pathogens, toxins and emotions is loosened by the cooked grapejuice. It’s recommended to take sips to avoid spiking blood sugar. The dry fasting windows help make the fast even more potent: dry fasting is the highest form of healing and is deeply regenerating on a cellular level. In addition, masterfast assists for the cleanse of the lymphatic system. We carry our mother emotional lineage inherently as we are born with our lymph system containing the same lymph fluid as our mother. As Arnold Ehret’s formula was theorizing: Vitality = Power – Obstruction.
Once a day, I was taking herbal tinctures. At some point of the day and away from other intake, I would have the “pudding” (in form of liquid, solidified jelly, baked or encapsulated), a mixture of bentonite clay, charcoal and psyllium, which takes waste on its way out and makes sure it’s not absorbed into the blood. I would do an enema during the wet window: “your water will be body temperature and ideally filtered water – juice of one lemon per 1.5/2 lt of enema for best mucus pulling effect and anti-candida and parasites – 1 tbsp of bicarb for calming excessive acids – 1 tbsp of chlorella powder for alkalising and calming the bowels – 1 tbsp of Haritaki powder for healing the bowels and deep cleansing – any herbal tea can be used for enema as well – you can also dissolve probiotic capsules into enema water as a quick boost of probiotics, even though ultimately our gut flora balances out and rebuilds as we come back into balance by changing our internal terrain” explains Gino Di Serio, the creator of the method. As you can see, detoxing is a big commitment in terms of time and energy. It became a big part of my daily life.
Year 2018 has been a whole year of ascetism to reconnect to my own energy field and focus on being aware of what’s mine and what isn’t. From end of August to beginning of October 2018, I went through my first long fast, 42 days. It took me more than 3 months to integrate and to feel the benefits of it on physical but also emotional, psychic and multidimensional levels. During this fast, I struggled the most around day 16 – day 22 when I was thinking I wasn’t even halfway and my mind got involved in the process. For a few days, I ate a few dates and even went for a plate of raw zucchini (which was extremely hard to digest, I learned from experience about the required amount of digestive energy for raw vegetables). As my dehydration was coming up to the surface, I was enjoying coconut water after longer weekly dry fasts.
In the beginning, I felt some days were really long. All the time spent for preparing or cleaning the dishes, groceries, digestion or elimination was available for something else. I felt more sovereign over my own time but it sometimes felt too intense and overwhelmingly long. All my senses were heightened.
Soon enough, my nervous system would inform me of traumatic energies very sharply, I would get shaky when a bit of stress (such as driving in the middle of a city or interacting in a mind-controlling yoga center) would cross my way. I felt the need to clear my space and I reviewed all my belongings: about every single object in every room of the house, bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedrooms. I gave away boxes of clothes, books, old objects. I also got overwhelmed by the frequency of some old massive furniture and simplified the space for more energy flow. I bumped into some cheap second hand lovely furniture. I invested in the most organic and natural products I could find for soaps, I threw away useless supplements that were addressing symptoms. I became very sensitive to the frequency of things: creams, shampoos, body soaps and would use a minimum amount on me. I threw away beauty creams that I wasn’t sure about and nail polish. I stopped using nail polish for the nails on my hands and started to use a natural nail oil. For my toes, I opted for Cienna Rose nail polish with long lasting richly pigmented colour formulation that are 12 free (12 elements of toxicity commonly found in nail polish) as a transition before stopping to use nail polish at all.
I broke my fast on a high after a long 43-hour dry fast, almost 2 days! I was shivering from feeling the energy flowing within my body. I wasn’t dreaming about coming back to food. I was also getting quite on the border with some old satisfaction from being really skinny. For 2 days, I would eat mangos and fruits that weren’t organic and it wasn’t tasty at all. Moreover, fruits weren’t really calling me as tomatoes and sprouts would be doing. I discovered an organic farm close (18 minutes) from my home. They have very clean products in there, it felt like a magic cavern, shopping there was already a sensory experience for my sense of smell: I would find green herbs and tasty green leafs grown locally and organically and red peppers. I wanted to nourrish with food that had been grown with love and care, I could literally taste the love. For a while, I prepared my juices with extra care and love. It was a feast and the best party I had been at for a long time. My first vegetable broth was divine after so much sugary intake. For 3 days, everything tasted amazingly great. I made sure I wasn’t doing something else while connecting with food, like reading or watching a video. I was diving back slowly, not mixing many ingredients in one meal, leaving 30 minutes or one hour in between each meal, not mixing too many things at once in my stomach, eating one fruit at the time (one thing I was never able to do before). I was learning about food combination and bloating from mistakes of food combining. I had some cravings for salty things (cheese, chickpeas) but kept away from it, trying to satisfy it with natural salts such as dried tomatoes or seaweeds. I committed to eating mucus free for 2 months which helped for the integration and with my poor digestion. For a full week, I would feel tired with the digestive function being activated again. I noticed I would feel more evidently in my chest when something or someone was out of alignement. It took me a good 3 months to integrate 42 days of fasting and for a decent level of digestion to be attained again.
End of February 2019, I was having my last solid food after a week of allowing myself more freedom into tasting the food without being scared of slowing detox down as I knew I was about to dive deeper again. I dried fast for 40 hours to kickstart the second round of a less radical masterfast (I would have a broth from time to time and it happened I had tomato juice as I was driving for long hours and getting very much in the ether). Between 2 realities as I was travelling away and coming back home, my mind didn’t have the chance to build story and fears about entering the fast. The fridge was empty. Beforehand, there was no compulsive eating (as it happened for 2 weeks prior to the first fast). This fast was easier to navigate. During this fast, I had to do frequent ear candling to avoid for my ears to be clogged up. Black matter would leave through my colon. In the physical realm, I cleaned a part of my basement. At the end of the fast, I stopped at a plant shop and bought a dozen of new plants and redecorated one room of the house.
I went back to food while dealing with being in touch with denial in others around me and it was more complicated than the first time. After 3 weeks of being back to food, I felt unclear and numb. I decided to fast again and it was my first experience of an hybrid masterfast, including fruit meals and some fresh fruit juice. My motivation was different this time: I wanted to understand the emotions, anxiety, fears and triggers of the last weeks and I also wanted to get out of limbo land with old stagnant projects/ideas/content that had been waiting for my attention for months/years. The hybrid lasted 2 weeks and helped me integrate and relaunch digestion gradually. Hydration from fruits helped to make it a more pleasant experience. For a few weeks though, I began to be unable to commit to my dry fasting windows and lost the habit and discipline. It takes years for the body to hydrate itself at the cellular level. Gino explains: “the reason most people feel thirsty is because their bodies are on fire. They are throwing the body out of acid-balance with their toxic and dehydrating diets. The Standard American Diet (SAD) obstructs the body and sucks the hydration and vitality out of the cells. Thus, people feel the need to drink to cool down the acids and dilute the toxicity. However, drinking water does not hydrate the body. If anything, it puts more stress on the kidneys, which have to filter all the extra fluid. Ideally, the kidneys filter excess obstructions in the fluid and expel them out of the body through the urine. However, when the kidneys are obstructed, the blood and lymph become backed-up with obstructions, which may start coming out through the skin (another elimination organ) in the form of pimples, rashes, eczema, psoriasis. This simply means that underneath the skin, the fluid is backed up with obstructions because the kidneys and bowels are blocked. Basically, when the kidneys are blocked, the whole body becomes obstructed. The more sediment we see in the urine, the more obstruction exiting the body allowing free plasmatic field interactions, thus restoring kidney function. Clear urine indicates that the kidneys are not filtering (i.e. blocked kidneys).” After a few weeks of rehabilitation I had sweet potatoes chips (with oil on it) and it was so divine but I could also experience the addictive effect every bite had on me. I also noticed the effects of spices as they are stimulants but indulged a little with them.
Fasting is helping me to be less cut from my body, to reconnect to my numbed senses, to rediscover the pleasure of every bite of food. Cellular detox and fasting help me to let go of the idea of what I look like today. Some days are really unflatering and it doesn’t say tomorrow won’t be a glorious day. There is very rare models around of what health looks like. Fasting is showing me also how to face and process my emotions, watch my thougths from a distance and excavate hidden motives behind every action and thought. It helps me to pacify my relationship with food and realise I didn’t even know how complex this relationship was. Fasting has been the most rewarding decision I have made for myself in a while, simple and clear. It is showing me the way, revealing how I can be ungrounded, how I can be dissociated from my body. I am getting stronger in my psyche, I am getting so clear during these times but my emotional patience decreases as I am getting more overwhelmed by the clarity and the potency of the signals my body is sending me.
From mid-2019 my body would just refuse the grapejuice and I just continued liquid fasting with fresh fruit juice, especially citrus (oranges, lemons and tangerines) and pineapples, apples and kiwis with a bit of distilled water, coconut water and birch sap. I am getting similar impressive results as the masterfast, combined with windows of dry fasting. From the start I also had trouble to swallow the pudding, which I only did during the first long fast yet my body would get rid of a lot of obstruction still. I am an advocate of listening to my own body, not forcing it to follow a protocol that does not fit and especially coming back to my own intuitive guidance which by far exceeed the results I can get on the masterfast only, a movement that is also impregnated with a certain level of shame and guilt and derailing from personal sovereignty but which does obtain good results if followed. There is a time for everything and I am thanking the masterfast to have served me so well, no moving on to new adventures.
