Fasting History


Healing chamfered, diet, nutrition, removing At the end of the 19th century chamfering was no longer practiced by most churches and began to disappear in the sinking. Around 1880 the physicians Henry Tanner and Ed Hooker Dewey took up the topic chamfered again and revived it. Tanner accomplished at itself a 42-tägiges chamfered under supervision of further physicians, Dewey represented the therapeutic effect during the observation of numerous chamfering cures.

Thus he was of the opinion that patients, who suffered from feverish infections should not be weakened by too much nutrition under any circumstances further, and the body rather needs a chamfering cure, in order to come again to forces. This thesis was rejected by most orthodox physicians. Dewey was smiled at by most and his findings lacked scientific justification.

Nevertheless the welfare-chamfering could become generally accepted at this time increasingly also under the school physicians. A great supporter of Dewey was the German doctor Siegfried Möller. He saw the practice of fasting as an antidote to penance and physical decay.

Möller also wrote numerous books on the subject of fasting and, during a serious illness, practiced various fasting cures also on himself. At the turn of the century a separation between holistic fasting, which should also treat physical aspects and diseases, but also the mental and psychological components should not be disregarded, and the orthodox medical view. This was above all coined/shaped by numerous in animal-experimental investigations researched realizations over the hunger metabolism.

One tried to fathom the chamfering process exclusively scientifically and weigh for and against each other. At this time of separation, both fronts hardened. Many years later the medical profession and the naturopaths approached again a little bit.

In 1937, the internists Dr. Grote, who mainly used orthodox medical practices, and Alfred Brauchles, who presented nutritional physiological connections, showed that a cooperation of both movements was possible. During the Third Reich, naturopathy and thus also fasting reached a new peak. The reason was the absolute supporters of naturopathy in the regime, who particularly promoted this type of medicine.

Thus the chamfering cure inventor Buchinger was closely connected by the request for the publication of various chamfering books with the term welfare-chamfered and naturopathy. The regime wanted to achieve that chamfered and naturopathy became widespread in Germany and was applied area-wide.

The scientist Bloom made first attempts in 1959 at overweight patients, who underwent a longer chamfering cure.

With very strongly over-weighty patients a chamfering duration of 249 days was reached. The success was very promising, lost the patients thereby a majority of your body weight (chamfered removing). From these attempts resulted the “0 diet” still known today.

The University of Ulm also made numerous attempts on the topic chamfered and examined physiological processes during chamfering. Chamfering cures were accomplished at this time with patients stationarily in the hospital. Accompanying treatments, like intestine cleaning, psychological support etc.

were omitted however. The main attention was on the weight reduction and accordingly removing. As fast the patients could reduce also the body weight, so fast they increased also at the end of the chamfering cure again.

Furthermore numerous circulation-conditioned side effects could be determined. The high costs of the stationary treatment made the hospital operators soon consider to change to an ambulatory treatment. Further studies, which described an excessive protein dismantling during chamfered, reduced the chamfering euphoria.

Physicians strongly advised the administration of proteins during the fasting, regardless of how long the cure lasted. Naturopaths replied that this protein degradation is part of the concept of fasting and tends to accelerate recovery. Again hardened fronts between school medicine and naturopaths arose.The industry recognized its opportunity and produced dietary supplements with protein-containing additives, which were increasingly offered in stores and sold well.

Fasting began to migrate out of the focus of medicine and into pharmacies and supermarkets, where these preparations were increasingly available. Ever more humans practiced chamfered with these aids without medical supervision. In 1978, 60 overweight patients who had undergone a fasting cure with protein substitution without medical supervision died.

Fasting lost its all-healing reputation and fell into oblivion. Even today opponents of the chamfered still quote the incidents from the year 1978. It is correct that the patients did not die from chamfering, but by incorrectly manufactured protein preparations.

Protein seems to be the main criticism of fasting in general. Thus, fasting critics always describe a too high protein loss through fasting combined with the loss of protein-storing muscle fibers. One must not forget that man and animal have successfully survived numerous unwanted periods of fasting in their history.

The chamfering proponents see with this argument the protein loss fear thus as unfounded. Today chamfered is used in a somewhat different form. Natural products, which do not exceed a total calorific value of 500 kcal are recommended to the chamfering patients.

Furthermore, patients are advised to combine the reduced food intake with physical exercise and physiotherapy, naturopathy, psychotherapy and dietary training. The “blessing” of the school medicine led to the fact that chamfered today mostly again as in old times is accomplished. Thus chamfering vacations, moving journeys and courses are offered under the slogan chamfered in the old day.

Often there is a not medical chamfering leader, who does not chamfer even usually also-fast and for questions and for observation each chamfering participant to the side stands. One may not ignore the fact that also today still numerous partly medical institutions found their business with the welfare-chamfered. Thus by tour operators commercial chamfering journeys and moving vacations are offered and used actively.

In addition there are not only numerous food auxiliary means particularly manufactured for chamfering lovers in the pharmacy and in the reform house to buy, but numerous established physicians and hospitals offer partly also a stationary chamfering treatment, which must be financed however not by the health insurance companies and be carried thus by the patient. It is important to note that a medical observation of chamfered is in principle good, a stationarily accompanied chamfering vacation however often unnecessary is. Before a chamfering cure a detailed physical medical examination is important to let accomplish, in order to exclude that the patients suffer from diseases, with which a chamfered should be omitted.

Furthermore the patient should estimate its borders during a chamfering cure correctly. Thus, as described, the feeling of hunger, irritability, dizziness and tiredness is normal at the beginning. If it comes however to strongest swindle and circulation problems should not be also hesitated the chamfering cure to break off.

Strongly overweight people must also consider the following: in the fatty tissue are stored numerous toxins of daily life. By chamfered over long time it comes to a radical melting of the fat masses with a connected release of the poison materials. These toxins can then cause side effects in the body and must be considered.

If a chamfering cure is accomplished for weight reduction with strongly over-weighty patients, one should nevertheless, then today’s medical profession guesses/advises, a minimum quantity of calories to itself to take, in order to contain the partial very strong poison material release. For certain diseases it is medically indicated to abstain from food. In the case of inflammation of the pancreas or various gastrointestinal infections, a temporary diet should be avoided. In this case, however, one does not speak of fasting, but of a food leave.
