Chronic fatigue is an indication that the body’s ‘batteries’ have run down and resistance is lowered, and thus serves as a warning that disease might strike at any time; it is primarily due to a critical deficiency of active enzymes in the diet and an overabundance of ‘dead’ processed, overcooked foods, in incompatible combinations; such diets, typical of modern times, literally starve cells of nutrition and energy and permit toxic wastes to accumulate in the tissues; consequently, the body is unable to generate and direct energy for work or play; all available energy must be used just to keep the body alive.
Pecans: nature’s most potent source of organic pyridoxine (vitamin B6), which is essential for all nervous functions and plays a key role in utilizing amino acids derived from consumed proteins; since all vital functions are controlled by the nervous system, pecans provide the element required by nerves to transform nutritional ‘essence’ to functional energy and regulate the body; 10-15 raw pecans, or 20-30 pecan halves daily is a therapeutic dose.
Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: this blend provides a potent boost of active enzymes and organic nutrients to the bloodstream, while also alkalizing and cleansing the kidneys, which in turn improves blood quality and helps relieve fatigue; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 1-2 pints daily.
Carrot juice: raw carrot juice is perhaps the best overall therapeutic food in the world; it alkalizes, cleanses, nourishes and stimulates almost every system in the body; as such, it is an effective antidote for the nervous exhaustion caused by diets deficient in vital raw foods; 2-3 pints daily.
The tenth-century AD Sung Dynasty physician Chang Tsung-cheng wrote extensively on the therapeutic benefits of cleansing the colon of accumulated debris and poisons, and he recommended this therapy for all sorts of seemingly unrelated ailments, including indigestion and constipation, breathing problems, headaches and fevers, stiff and painful joints, mental and emotional abnormalities, and so forth. He wrote:
The campaign’s defeat has also exposed our collective weakness, and it points to the need to deepen our organizations, institutions, and reach. The political tide is still at our backs to organize for desperately needed measures like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and a rejection of American militarism. And if we seize those opportunities, we can use those struggles to advance the movement for democratic socialism and build our long-term strength
Here is the correct procedure for applying the abdominal lock during breath retention: when the lungs are full, the diaphragm stretched and the anal lock applied, deliberately draw the lower portion of the abdominal wall (the part below the navel) inward (Figure 3.8b). This will push the abdominal organs inward and upward against the downward and outward pressure caused by the diaphragm and thereby maintain enhanced pressure within the abdominal cavity. Note that contraction of the lower abdominal wall causes a slight distension of the upper abdominal wall, just below the sternum. This is perfectly normal and correct. The upper part of the abdomen is much more rigid than the lower and its slight distension during the abdominal lock does not negate abdominal pressure.
