Dharma Healing International we do an
'Elimination Fast' which includes taking rehydrated bentonite
clay and our own freshly made “Five Flavor” Herbal Cleansing Formula.
Our herbal cleansing formula is balanced for overcoming addictions,
burning up excess fat, softening, loosening up, cleansing and
eliminating old hardened mucoid plaque, bile, toxic urine and
lymph fluid, yeast and parasites that stay sometimes for years
in the digestive organs and body tissues
a day fasters self-administer a simple colonic irrigation practice
we call “Yogalonics”, where we work with the water while performing
different Yoga breathing techniques, massage and asanas to go
deeper into the colon territory and the relationship with the
body-mind interface. This
is a very practical and life-saving method in which one can take
with them when they leave, perform on themselves at any time for
healing numerous acute and chronic health problems.
people call what we do an enema. An enema is when the water only
goes as far up into the colon as the sigmoid and descending colon.
A colonic is when the water goes throughout the whole colon. One
can do wonders with as little as 2, 3 or 4 liters of water if
they know how to utilize the water to its maximum performance.
And it is possible for some people to feel very successful with
this technique while eliminating a great amount of old toxic material.
colonic solution we use organic coffee grown in Chumpon (a Thai
province North of Suratthani) that we roast and ground ourselves.
The coffee is stored in sealed bags and kept in a cool, dark black
barrel where it is preserved until roasting. Coffee is by far
one of the best colonic solutions for stimulating the peristalsis
of the material in the colon and detoxifying the liver. However
on occasion we will use organic green tea and other herbal teas
and sometimes essential oils on request.
the day fasters sip on a variety of liquids, such as: filtered
RO and UV light water, medicinal herbal teas of the day, lime
water, fresh coconut waters filled with enzymes, vitamins, minerals,
amino acids and fatty acids that are harvested in our neighborhood.
A few times we per week we provide fresh juices. In the evening
we serve a very nutritious veggie broth soup that we make each
day full of minerals and phytonutrients, made with locally grown
fresh veggies, spices and herbs from China, North America, India,
Malaysia and Thailand.
third day as most fasters have experienced some colon cleansing
we begin mildly focusing on stimulating the detoxification of
the liver while providing a tablespoon of Epsom salts in a glass
of water and another special drink called a liver flush. The Epsom
salts relaxes and opens up the bile ducts. Then two hours later
we provide the very tasty liver flush with orange juice, lime
juice, fresh dried chili, ginger, garlic and 4 tablespoons of
extra virgin olive oil. Both flushes simultaneously within a short
time of one another allow old stagnant bile and sometimes gall
and liver stones to be released into the intestinal tract for
to the above intake each person takes a small amount of crystalized
Vitamin C powder per day to promote the all over cleansing process
as well as give oxygen to the cells and thus energy during the
fasters are given a bottle of filtered water mixed with Ionic
Liquid Minerals, Cell Food and Mezotrace Powder to support the
metabolism with enough minerals.
time to time other nourishing and medicinal drinks, herbal and
Vitamin supplements and homeopathic remedies are provided based
on individual need during the program. .
Fasting Program isn’t the quick 7 day
clean me out type of fast. We provide a minimum of the highly
energized above products—just enough to stimulate the body to
cleanse and heal on its own. Our belief is that it isn’t more
is better, it is least is best.
is quite unique, for along with the fasting protocol we include
a complete course of classes taught in a very particular sequence
according to how people look and accept themselves; how they are
motivated to cleanse and let go of the old self, old habits and
attitudes and emotions, and go through transformation.
the week a variety of classes are taught to help fasters work
with the cleansing, fasting process, to guide and support each
and every person while preparing him/her to lead a healthy life
when they leave us.

are given a great deal of individual attention to bring light
to their present state and time in life. One of the best methods
for learning about a person’s health is the Science of Iridology.
Each person is provided one Iridology reading during the week
with a personal explanation of what Iridology is and how to read
a chart. The Irides express a portrait of a person’s all over
health condition and constitution. In addition to the Iridology
reading nutritional, emotional and spiritual counseling is combined.
each week we include two Thai massage treatments with our masseuse
of 20 years, Pon. A one hour session includes a thorough abdominal
massage (if requested), supporting the elimination. Additional
Thai massage is available during the day time on a fee by hour
basis with Pon.
Do We Need to Fast?
If you live in a relatively populated city today
you will find that we human beings have such an extremely broad
selection of foods to choose from, that most people don’t know
how to choose; although to be more accurate, it is that a major
number of people in the modern world are not very in touch with
what nutrition their body needs. We go by flavor, what we grew
up with, the colorful and engaging labels, and the hourly whims
of the mind to decide what we want to eat at any one meal. Most
of us take for granted our short ride to the supermarket where
our imagination is entertained.
few people actually eat for nutrition and even fewer eat only
when they are hungry. Although during ancient time people only
had a few foods available during any one season—there was very
little to choose from. In fact human beings survived on nothing
from time to time where they were forced to fast.
days are long gone as we exist at the far end of the opposite
extreme—most people eat too much and hardly ever experience what
it means to starve.
words, a good majority of people eat for all types of reasons
that are not related to being hungry and can often times not be
related to health. In fact as we proceed on a holistic more spiritual
path through life we need to truly experience what it means to
feel really hungry; hungry for nutrition. And to train the body
and mind to intuitively know what nutrition one needs to eat we
need to fast from time to time.
become very popular over the years. The reasons why narrow down
to that we have consciously and unconsciously subjected our body,
mind and spirit to harmful life-styles, eating habits, and a modern
world packed full of toxic, artificial substances that inhibit
the body's own natural ability to cleanse and protect itself,
while staying healthy throughout life. The digestive organs get
clogged with waste matter that over time becomes a very toxic
sewer. Here is what takes place in detail:
waste matter builds up, the epithelial cells lining the intestinal
tract secrete mucous due to irritation. Built up toxins, stored
in the mucous lining are thus absorbed by the body. Over years
the toxic mucous gets harder and harder, becoming layers of rubberized
matter or “mucoid plague” (and there can be over 20 or more lbs.
in there!) that causes indigestion, prevents the body from absorbing
all the nutrients from food and suppresses or over stimulates
the immune system to do its job properly. At this point all of
the systems in the body work overtime trying to clean up the excess
waste that has accumulated heavily in the lymph system and at
a cellular level. The once good, friendly microbiome (genes and
micro-organisms that live in and on our body) becomes horribly
compromised toward more villainous species who we make, host and
receive from the environment. Thus the milieu of the body is not
healthy; it absolutely not in favor of one’s enlightenment.
same time, compensating for lack of oxygen, the person exhausts
all of his/her alkaline energy reserves to find homeostasis, and
a slow spiral toward an increasingly unhealthy life continues
until effort is made to do some cleansing and make some changes
or go to the doctor to get fixed in some manner or die.
state that many, many people are in can cause everything from
that tired, exhausted feeling, CFS - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
Fibromyalgia, acne, eczema, psoriasis, Candida albicans, asthma,
arthritis, heart disease, high cholesterol, pre-mature aging,
neuro-muscular diseases, obesity, auto-immune disorders, chronic
pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Irritable Bowel Disease (basically
anything wrong in the intestinal track), also PMS, peri-menopause
and menopause symptoms, Diabetes and other diseases of the endocrine
glands such as hypo and hyperthyroidism, adrenal fatigue, infertility,
liver diseases and Cancer.
not every illness is related to this waste overflow the body is
carrying around, causing a clogged digestive system, but as one
well known doctor said, 90% of our illnesses are related (refer
to our quotes). Fasting is a natural healing method, a time to
let the higher intelligence of your body take over. It is the
oldest healing method humankind has known. To cleanse the colon
[large intestine], the liver, the blood and other internal organs
may be the best thing you will ever do for your health.
the Fast properly for the first 10 days
after the fast will help one experience the full benefits of the
fast. To begin the break process we provide a tasty cashew yogurt
we make together in the kitchen raw foods class. Eaten over 3
or 4 days the cashew yogurt reintroduces friendly pro-biotic bacteria
into the intestinal tract, important enzymes for stimulating digestion
and B Vitamins to support the immune system. On day two of breaking
the fast each person begins eating the amazing kimchi we also
make in the in the kitchen class, which is full of pro and pre-biotics
(fiber), enzymes, phytonutrients and sylvestrols.
the fast, it is important to put one's own loving energy into
the food. We encourage all of our fasters to go to the local fresh
food market and buy their own fruits and vegetables a cutting
board, knife and bowl. This simple act of feeding and nurturing
ourselves after a fast supports a physical, mental and spiritual
immune response, toward happiness and wellbeing.
of us is very delicate after a fast and needs to take excellent
care in breaking the fast properly. Once again, I will tell you
that it takes a minimum of at least 10 days of breaking the fast
properly to feel the full physical, mental and spiritual benefits.
That is why we give explicit directions in staying away from a
list of "No Nos" while eating a natural, mostly raw, whole foods
diet. This class is one of the 6 classes we teach during the Break
the Fast workshop.
necessary to watch not only what we eat, how we eat, how much
we eat, who we eat with, who grows and prepares our food, and
also where we eat after a good fast. Restaurant and airline food
may not always be healthy. Many people who eat in restaurants
and who eat airplane food directly after a fast report feeling
awful. We encourage and support fasting on bottled water (you
must ask for it), ordering fruit or carrying healthy foods on
a fast each of us is vibrating at a much higher frequency and
is definitely HUNGRY! Not only that we often become intuitively
awakened to what appropriate nutrition is and what are unwanted
poisons. Thus, we become much more vulnerable and sensitive to
what we eat and have very distinct desires on what to break-fast
with; such as wanting a cucumber, a piece of watermelon, a mango
or an onion! Yes, there are people who are very hungry for an
onion when they break their fast.
who comes here leaves feeling changed, alive vibrant and truly
awakened to their Higher Self! Many people overcome old habits,
attitudes, and addictions. Smoking is not allowed and most people
quit smoking, drinking alcohol, eating sugar, taking recreational
drugs, also medications and eating unhealthy processed fast foods.

are new to the idea of internal cleansing you will be starting
a fantastic education into your body and your health from a very
personal, spiritual experience. As we like to say, you really
get to know YOU.
Eastern and Western religious traditions fasting has been our
primary way toward spiritual inspiration and self-purification,
broadening our inner consciousness and intuitive abilities toward
wellbeing and enlightenment. It is a time to go within, giving
the body a rest from the material world, the mind a superior focus
and the spirit freedom to swim in harmony with the elements of
nature, elements that support one's humanness and ultimate, divine
simplicity to experience life at its most basic existence. It
is the oldest therapeutic method known to human beings. Even before
the advent of the medicine man and the healing arts, human beings
instinctively stopped eating when they felt ill and abstained
from food until health was restored. All of our greatest masters
have fasted. It is without a doubt the absolute best gift a person
can give him or herself and is the

is hidden sweetness in the stomach’s emptiness
We are lutes no more, no less
If the soundbox is stuffed full of anything-no music
If the brain and the belly are burning clean with fasting every
moment a new song comes out of the fire
The fog clears and new energy makes you run up the steps in front
Be emptier and cry like reed instruments cry
Emptier write secrets with the reed pen
When you’re full of food and drink an ugly metal statue
sits where your spirit should be
When you fast good habits gather like friends who want to help
Fasting is Soloman’s Ring
Don’t give it to some illusion and lose your power
But even if you have if you’ve lost all will and control
they come back when you fast
Like soldiers appearing out of the ground
Pennants flying above them
A table descends to your tents
Expect to see it when you fast this table
Spread with other food better than the broth of cabbages
