to offer, but it is generally accepted that for a

you tried it once, you know why so many people do
believe that many health problems are caused, or made
worse, by un-healthful accumulations within the body.
These accumulations may be in the form of chemical
toxins such as PCB's, Dioxin, pesticide residue, etc,
or normal metabolic products that are present in abnormal
amounts. Which is why fasting is so important
of the most common questions asked is about fasting
and metabolism. The fear is that while fasting, the
metabolism will slow down and afterward there will
be more weight gained than before the fast. Initially,
any calorie reduction will cause a lowering in the
BMR or base metabolic rate. Cleansing will bring health
that will increase metabolic performance and energy
output. In other words, you will eat less and feel
fasting, the body is more efficient. Digestion is
better due to a cleaner colon. The colon walls have
been cleansed of impacted feces, allowing improved
absorption of nutrients. The good news is that greater
efficiency equals enhanced energy. Healthy people
burn more calories. They also eat less because they
are more active and feel better about themselves.
They don't need food as a security blanket.
organs and glands get a much-needed and well-deserved
rest, during which the tissues are purified and rejuvenated
and the functions balanced and regulated. The entire
alimentary canal (stomach, small intestines, large
intestine/colon) is swept clean, and what comes out

colon cleanser/faster sufficiently to make fasting

the most important benefit of fasting is that it thoroughly
cleans and purifies the bloodstream
ancient Greeks fasted for health and longevity, and
were known for their robust physical health. Galen,
Paracelsus and Hippocrates, who are recognized as
the founding fathers of Western medicine, prescribed
and practiced fasting for all serious ailments. Pythagoras
required his students to fast for 40 days to purify
body and mind prior to receiving his highest teachings.
Plato and Aristotle, whose thought forms the very
warp and woof of Western philosophy, fasted regularly
to enhance physical health and stimulate mental powers.

Bible mentions fasting 74 times, and Jesus
himself fasted frequently, sometimes up to
40 days at a time. He recommended fasting
and colon cleansing to restore the body to
health. From The
Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ we quote:
from all the temptations of your body and
your spirit , coming from Satan, withdraw
beneath the shadow of God's heaven. Renew
yourself and fast.
I tell you truly that Satan and his plagues
may only be cast out by fasting and prayer.
And fast till Beelzebub and his evils departs
from and all the angels of our earthy mother
come and serve you. For I tell you truly,
except you fast, you shall never be free from
the power of Satan and from all diseases that
comes from Satan.
further recommends colonics. Quote:
not that it sufficient that the angel of water
embrace you outward only. I tell you truly,
the uncleanness within is greater by much
than the uncleanness without. And he who cleanses
himself without, but within remains unclean
is like tombs that outwards are painted fair,
but are within full of all manners of horrible
uncleanness and abominations. So I tell you
truly, suffer the angels of water to baptize
you also within, that you may become free
from all past sins, and that within likewise
you may become as pure as the river's foam
sporting in the sunlight.
then goes on to describe how to make and do
a gravity colonic. So colon cleansing is not
something new, but has been practiced for
over 2000 years. If diseases were caused by
impurities and toxins 2000 years ago, how
much more vital must it not be to fast and
cleanse today, when we live in a world putrefied
with chemicals and toxins. I saw an article
some time ago in a London newspaper, which
claimed that a person living in London, UK
is exposed to 500 different toxins every day.

American Babies Born Polluted, Study
July 27, 2005
Reporting by Roddy Scheer
to a report released last week by the
nonprofit Environmental Working Group
(EWG), American babies are born with
an average of 287 chemical contaminants
in their bloodstreams. The findings
are based on tests of 10 samples of
umbilical-cord blood taken by the American
Red Cross across the country. The most
prevalent chemicals found in the 10
newborns were mercury, fire retardants,
pesticides and the Teflon chemical PFOA.
Of the 287 chemicals we detected in
umbilical-cord blood, we know that 180
cause cancer in humans or animals, 217
are toxic to the brain and nervous system,
and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal
development in animal tests, the report
These 10 newborn babies... were born
polluted, said House Democrat Louise
Slaughter of New York, who is leading
the charge in Congress to hold chemical
producers more accountable to higher
standards. If ever we had proof that
our nation's pollution laws aren't working,
it's reading the list of industrial
chemicals in the bodies of babies who
have not yet lived outside the womb,
Slaughter also had similar tests done
on her own blood, which she found to
contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
that were banned decades ago as well
as chemicals like Teflon that are currently
under federal investigation. I have
auto exhaust fumes, flame retardant
chemicals, and in all, some 271 harmful
substances pulsing through my veins,

of health I had hoped for, but I've
been living in an industrial society
for more than 70 years.
reading the Gospel of Peace, a copy of which
was given to us by a friend after we had settled
at Moinhos Velhos, I understood why Jesus
had guided us to establish a Fasting
Health Retreat in Portugal. We were living
in Spain in 1991, practicing Holistic Alternative
Therapies, (although Anne Karine was still
peddling back and forth to her part time job
as a Logistic Superintendent on a gas rig
in the North Sea) when during channeled meditation
sittings and use of the Oja board, we were
guided to go to Portugal. For some time we
had been looking for a location to establish
a Health Retreat, where people could stay
to experience the wonderful therapeutic benefits
of the combination of Fasting, Yoga and Meditation,
Alternative Therapies, Sauna, Pool and Nature
walks. Nobody anywhere seem to offer this
powerful combination, our experience with
this we wanted to share with others.
could not find a suitable location in Spain.
Then the messages started coming through to
go to Portugal. When in one sitting we asked
who our Guides were, one was Ervina? from
Estonia, whom we had never heard of, and the
other was Jesus Christ. That surprised us.
I (Frank) asked: You are Jesus Christ from
Nazareth who lived 2000 years ago? The answer
was: Yes. I can still remember
the hair standing up on the back of my neck.
But, I said, I am not a Christian. I do not
believe in organized religion. I am a yogi,
my name is Parameshwara, my mantra
is Om Namah Sivaya. I was truly amazed
that I should be communicating with the spirit
of Jesus Christ.
reading The Gospel of Peace, I could understand
why Jesus was guiding us. What we offer at
Moinhos Velhos is that which he taught 2000
years ago. But the most valuable lesson was
the understanding that the Christ energy has
nothing to do with religion. It is not reserved
for people who follow an established religion
or dogma, but is a divine cosmic energy available
to all of us. Every one of us.
spent six weeks searching for the right location
in Portugal. From the Spanish border in the
East of Algarve to Lagos in the West. We did
not want to be too far away from the airport
as we knew that most of our clients would
come from abroad, and we would have preferred
to find a place not too far from Faro. Our
friends, Sylta and Al, have a lovely Yoga
Retreat. Quinta Da Calma only 15 minutes from
Faro. We explored the possibility of offering
our program with them, but in the end realized
that we had to have our own place.
six weeks we had two locations to choose between.
One was at Funchal, 5 minutes outside of Lagos,
the other was Moinhos Velhos, 13 km inland
from Lagos. Anne Karine fell in love with
Moinhos Velhos right away, but Frank had serious
doubts. The place had been totally neglected
for over three years, sticky blackberry bramble
bushes covered everything, all facilities
would have to be built from scratch, he could
see that it was going to be much work and
costing a lot of money.
quote from The Gospel of Peace:
many unclean and sick followed Jesus' words
and sought the banks of the murmuring streams.
They put of their shoes and their clothing,
they fasted, and they gave up their bodies
to the angels of air, of water, and of sunshine.
And the Earthly mothers angels embraced them,
possessing their bodies both inward and outwards.
And all of them saw
all evils, sins and uncleanness depart in
haste from them.
the terrible fires in 2003 which destroyed
thousands of hectares of forest, devastated
many homes, killed several people and a multitude
of animals, which in our area raged completely
out of control for one week and left everything
around us in black cinder, not one blade of
grass was harmed in our valley...
property at Funchal, on the other hand, was
a doctors former residence and clinic. With
20 000 square meters of walled-in land, 14
rooms for guest and offices, sitting on top
of the ridge with a beautiful view over Lagos
and the sea, it only needed some painting
and cleaning up, and we would be in business.
Moinhos Velhos had some very special energies.
Totally secluded, away from all the popular
tourist areas, a valley of of its own, projecting
a mystical energy. At the time we did not
know what it was, but later discovered that
there are thousands of small quarts crystals
in the ground all around in the valley, and
that Moinhos Velhos is directly on one of
the twelve synchronisety lines, which join
together at only 2 places, one is at Damanhur
in Italy and the other is in Tibet. Later
in meditation we were also informed that Moinhos
Velhos is one of the light centers in the
world, and that we should concentrate on bringing
in The Light.
at the time we were undecided, so we called
our friend Margaret in England. She was living
with a well known clairvoyant, and we asked
for a reading. The reading that came back
declared that financially we would be most
successful with the Funchal location. But
it would attract the wrong kind of people
and energies. Moinhos Velhos on the other
hand, would be like poring money in a hole
for four years. But Moinhos Velhos was for
our spiritual evolution.
as far as we were concerned, then there was
no choice. We purchased Moinhos Velhos. Fortunately
Anne Karine still had her high paid executive
position in the North Sea, and for the next
four years all of her income went to support
day while looking through our notes from some
of the early channeling, we see the word Barragem.
It had actually been spelt out for us that
we should locate the Barragem. But it did
not mean anything to us, Barragem was a foreign
word, and somehow we forgot all about it.
Velhos is located at the Barragem da Bravura.

yogis are famous fasters and colon cleansers.
Gandhi is well known for his extended fasting,
and less remembered from the perspective of
his colon cleansing. We have seen a movie

river into the colon, and the squirting the
water out through the tube.

Sivananda, who was a medical doctor before becoming
a Swami, had this to say about fasting:
By Sri Swami Sivananda
many educated people do not observe fasting
on this sacred day. This is due to the impact
of the dark, vicious, materialistic forces.
When the intellect develops a little, people
begin to enter into arguments and unnecessary
discussions. Intellect is a hindrance on the
spiritual path. They who have not developed
the heart but who have developed their intellect
begin to doubt and question at every step.
They are led astray. They want a why
and a how for everything. They want
scientific explanations for all phenomena.
is beyond proofs and presumptions. One has
to approach religion and the scriptures with
great faith, reverence and purity of heart.
Then only are the secrets of religion revealed
unto him like the apple in the palm of one's
hand. Does anybody ask his mother to prove
who is his father?
controls passion. It checks the emotions.
It controls the senses also. It is a great
penance. It purifies the mind and the heart.
It destroys a multitude of sins. Fasting controls
the tongue in particular which is the deadliest
enemy of man. Fasting overhauls the respiratory,
circulatory, digestive and urinary systems.
It destroys all the impurities of the body
and all sorts of poisons. It eliminates uric
acid deposits. Just as impure gold is rendered
pure by melting it in the crucible again and
again, so also this impure mind is rendered
purer by repeated fasting.
and robust Brahmacharis (celibates) should
observe fasting whenever passion troubles
them. Only then will they have very good meditation,
as the mind will be rendered calm. The chief
object of fasting is to render the system
calm so that one is able to practice meditation
rigorously during that period.
the senses and fix the mind on god. Pray to
god to guide you and to throw a flood of light
on your spiritual path. Say with feeling:
O god, guide me! Protect me, protect me!
I am Thine, I am Thine! Forsake me not!
You will be blessed with purity, light and
strength. Follow this sadhana on the days
that you fast, ekadashi days in particular.
is one of the ten canons of yoga. However,
avoid excessive fasting. It will produce weakness.
Use your common sense. If you cannot fast
for the full twenty-four hours, at least fast
for 10-12 hours and then take some milk and
fruit. Gradually increase your fast to 15
hours and then up to 24 hours. Fasting makes
a man strong, both spiritually and mentally.
his code, the manu smriti, the great Hindu
lawgiver, manu, prescribes fasting for the
removal of the five capital sins. Diseases
that are pronounced incurable by doctors are
cured by fasting. Occasionally, a complete
fast is greatly desirable for all to keep
up good health, to give adequate rest to the
internal organs and maintain celibacy. All
diseases have their origin in overeating and
verily fasting is the only method to cure
traditional Taoist method of cleansing the
colon involved therapeutic fasts combined
with powerful herbal purgatives that dissolved
mucus and dredged debris from the colon. These
methods are mentioned as far back as the third
century BC, in the Yellow Emperor's Classic
of Internal Medicine.
Moinhos Velhos we also use a selection of
herbs to loosen the deposits on the the intestinal
wall, as well as special powders to facilitate
the evacuation of the loosened debris. Then
with colon cleansing using the Clysmatic,
cleansing through the skin, which is our largest
organ, with the Sauna,
our salt water pool and various holistic Therapies
we achieve a total cleanse.

Can Fasting Cure Cancer?
answer to this is both Yes and No. First of
all: Fasting does not cure anything.
It is a process that facilitates the body's
healing mechanisms. It is a gift to an overburdened
body. It is extremely effective in creating
an internal environment where the body can
do what it does best - heal itself. Which
it is always trying to do. During a fast all

food is available to restore the health of
the best known Fasting Program for curing
cancer is the Gerson
Therapy. But this is not a two week program,
but stretches over 18 months and is extremely
demanding with a multitude of organic juices
and enemas every day. However if the establishment
has given you no hope of cure, and maybe only
a short time left to live, then it is worth
it. Beta Bishop in her book A
Time to Heal (Amazon) gives a moving description
of her struggle with cancer, conventional
therapies, surgeons and her experience with
the Gerson program. It is tough, but it cured

with Incurable Arthritis. His future looked
bleak, there was no hope given for a cure,
he was only offered a multitude of pills to

of soon ending up in a wheelchair. Alan refused
to accept the verdict and set about to cure
his arthritis the Natural Way. His rheumatologist
thought this was ridicules. However Alan persevered
and following a program of Fasting,

still in Norway we had also been inspired
and motivated by the work of Alma Nissen,
who had a cure for Rheumatism and Arthritis
based on Fasting, Potato water and fresh
air. Even though very successful with her
program, it was never accepted by the establishment.
Even the chief rheumatologist/surgeon of
Stockholm's main hospital was cured by Alma
Nissen of his rheumatism, but when she asked
him: Now of course you will let the world
know about my treatment, his answer
was: Sorry imam, I have to earn a living.

Treatment Procedures For Arthritis And Other Leaky
early as 1968 a naturopathic physician named
Paavo O. Airola, reported on the results of
some highly successful biological treatment
procedures for curing arthritis in European
clinics. One of the most prominent treatment
centers using this powerful and highly successful
method of treatment is the Brandals Health
Clinic located in Sodertalje near Stockholm,
Miracles at Brandal
Airola provides narrative accounts of many
of the thousands of patients cured of arthritis
at Brandal. Virtually all patients admitted
for treatment at Brandal are remarkable in
that all suffer from severe pain, mild to
profound deformity and many are so crippled
and debilitated that they arrive in wheelchairs
or on stretchers.
cures were based on the work, research and
self experimentation of a courageous and very
determined lady, Alma Nissen, who 25
years earlier had desperately sought relief
from her own severe and debilitating arthritis.
Ms. Nissen relates:
five years ago I was so incapacitated
by arthritis that I was practically
bedridden. After trying all the available
medical treatments, consulting dozens
of doctors, and several fruitless stays
in hospitals I was becoming progressively
worse. My hands and fingers were stiff
and in constant pain. I could not bend
myself, walk, or even turn myself in
bed. In addition, I had a chronic ovary
inflammation and constant migraine.
I was suffering from a bad case of insomnia
with resulting nervous exhaustion. I
also was chronically constipated. .
felt hopeless. Nobody could help me.
I could not see my way out of the indescribable
suffering I had to endure. But my spirit
was strong and wouldn't give up. I was
not willing to accept my lot as a bedridden
invalid for the rest of my life. With
the typical Scandinavian sisu and perseverance
I rebelled against my fate. I wanted
to live, become healthy again. . .
book by a British physician, Sir Robert
McCarrison, gave me new hope and became
the turning point in my life. It opened
my eyes to the relation between nutrition
and health. I started to experiment
with myself. I changed my diet. I fasted.
I drank fresh vegetable juices and broths
made with cooked vegetables. I drank
herb teas. I took enemas and utilized
colonic irrigation to cleanse my intestines
of accumulated toxins and wastes. I
read all I could on the nature-cure
methods and picked up ideas here and
there. I met the famous Danish raw-diet
pioneer Dr. Kristine Nolfi, M.D. and
read and studied her book The Living
Foods. I also took heat treatments and
hydrobaths. I must admit, I didn't have
much faith in much of what I did, but
desperate as I was, I was willing to
my surprise when I started to feel better
and better! The stiffness in my joints
started to disappear. I slept better;
pain gave way, and after just a few
months I was, to my and everybody's
amazement, completely cured!
was 25 years ago and I never had a sick
day since. No traces of arthritis...
Would you like to see how flexible and
elastic my body is?...
when I cured myself I was so overjoyed
with the discoveries I made that I wanted
to share them with others and help as
many as I could. I visited Dr. McCarrison
and he advised me to open a clinic and
help other arthritics regain their health.
by the enthusiastic endorsement of this
great scientist, I transformed my seven-room
apartment in Copenhagen to an arthritis
clinic. Patients came from everywhere.
They were brought in on stretchers;
they came supported on crutches; they
came in wheelchairs. And after four
to eight weeks on my simple regime they
left the clinic on their own feet, without
wheelchairs and crutches. The grateful
patients spread the news of their cures
and a long line of patients were waiting
to come in under my care.
arthritis therapies and extraordinary
results became widely publicized in
the press. The Norwegian Medical Association
invited me to present a lecture on my
therapies before the leading medical
authorities of the country....
fame spread to Sweden and a wealthy
benefactor offered the Brandal, a beautiful
estate with a large villa, for my disposition,
to be used as a rheumatic clinic. I
accepted gratefully. That was 13 years
ago. During these years we have helped
thousands of arthritis sufferers. .

outside you need to cleanse on the inside.
Most of us take much better care of our cars
than our bodies. With the cars we change the
oil regularly, we bring the car in for inspection
and maintenance, and nobody would dream of
putting diesel fuel into a car with a gasoline
engine. But into our bodies and mind we put
all sorts of poisons. Then when we get sick
we hope that some pharmaceutical chemical
will fix the problem. Which it wont, it may
only hide the symptom, and often the side
effect of the prescribed medicine is worse
than the problem it is supposed to cure. Anyone
who has read the Doctors Handbook of the side
effect of most drugs, would be terrified of
subjecting his/her system to such potential
do regular maintenance of the body, do a yearly
fast. Don't wait till you get sick You
can do this at home, but it is much more
effective to do your fast in an environment
like Moinhos Velhos. Fasting is not only for
the body, but equally important for the Mind,
Emotions and Spirit. The settings and the
program at Moinhos Velhos, where you are away
from your daily stress and problems, there
are no TV or newspapers, your cell phone don't
work, there is time for introspection and
revaluation, yoga and meditation, is conducive
to achieve cleansing and healing on all levels.

is full of stress, if you are filled with
anger, frustration or jealousy, if you are
always judging others and want them to change,
if you hate your job or your boss, if you
are in an unsupportive relationship, if you
are always hoping that tomorrow will be better,
if you never take time out for yourself, then
it does not matter how perfect your diet is,
how many supplements you take, how clean your
colon is. Any and all of these negative emotions
will probably make you sick. This is why the
