Default Fasting and Sunbathing, 1950

Here is an old publication about fasting. It's quite a lengthy book, but quite fascinating when you've got time on your hands or can't sleep. There are some other older and out of print books at this SoilandHealth.org site.

HYGIENIC SYSTEM

By HERBERT M. SHELTON
D.P., N.D., D.C., D.N.T., D.N. Sc., D.N. Ph., D.N. Litt., Ph. D., D. Orthp.

Vol. III
FASTING and SUN BATHING
PUBLISHED BY
DR. SHELTON'S HEALTH SCHOOL
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS


First Edition 1934
Third Revised Edition 1950

WANT OF APPETITE is not always a morbid symptom, nor even a sign of imperfect digestion. Nature may have found it necessary to muster all the energies of our system for some special purpose, momentarily of paramount importance. Organic changes and repairs, teething, pleuritic eruptions, and the external elimination of bad humors (boils, etc.), are often attended with a temporary suspension of the alimentary process. As a rule, it is always the safest plan to give Nature her own way.

--FELIX L. OSWALD

I did get through Chapter 5 on autolysis. Here's a little:

Quote:
. The removal of tumors by autolysis has several advantages over their surgical removal. Surgery is always dangerous; autolysis is a physiological process and carries no danger. Surgery always lowers vitality and thus adds to the metabolic perversion that is back of the tumor. Fasting, by which autolysis of tumors is accelerated, normalizes nutrition and permits the elimination of accumulated toxins, thus helping to remove the cause of the tumor. After surgical removal tumors tend to recur. After their autolytic removal, there is little tendency to recurrence. Tumors often recur in malignant form after their operative removal. The tendency to malignancy is removal by fasting.
