All people with health challenges should check with their health care professional first. People on medications (e.g. blood sugar, pressure), pregnant/nursing, young children, eating disorders, and very thin people are especially advised to get medical input before fasting. Extreme athletes in season should not fast.

· Eligibility – some people should NOT fast, others check with doctor

· Choose exactly 72 hours or 3 calendar days (more hours)

· Preparation including intermittent fasting short window, low carb, bowels open, consider a 1-day fast as part of the 2-3 week preparation…

· Include mental/emotional preparation and consider not telling others

· Consider using sea salt & an enzyme/probiotic blend (won’t interfere)

· Also consider glutathione that may neutralize oxidative stress from toxins

· Plentiful pure water important – we don’t recommend dry fasting

· Limit exercise during the 3 days but lymphatic movement is important

· Get grounded by walking barefoot in the grass, relax, meditate if desired

· Expect possible symptoms like hunger, sleep disturbed, etc.

· Listen to your body before, during, after the fast – rate energy/sleep…

· Gradual refeeding including protein isolate & intermittent fasting
