You'll discover evidence that true cure can and has been achieved without all of the unnatural, inefficient and often ineffective offerings of our drug-based paradigm of so-called healing. As one noted author commented quite astutely, "Illness is not caused by a deficiency in drugs," therefore, drugs cannot be the answer to health. They simply can't be. That's insanity. In other words, no one says, "I just discovered I have a Prozac deficiency, so I need to take Prozac. How absurd is that??? How on earth can putting foreign, unnatural, non-food chemicals in the body restore health. That's just patently absurd.
You'll discover, as thousands of others have, that nature has had her cure waiting for you to have the courage and discipline required to take advantage of it. You'll discover in great detail how the "physiological rest" of fasting allows the body to engage in the pre-wired, pre-coded process of
• losing weight
• dissolving tumors
• eliminating cancer
• curing diabetes,
• mitigating mental illness
• fighting epilepsy
• curing syphilis
• reducing fibroids
• improving eyesight, hearing and smell, and
• reversing the aging process
"To starve is to die. To fast is to live!"
"Fasting is an absolutely different thing from starvation. One is beneficial; the other harmful. One is a valuable therapeutic measure; the other a death-dealing experiment."--Physical Culture, May, 1915 [as quoted in Fast & Grow Young Chap I]
Digestion and assimilation of food are a tax on the vital powers of the organism and increase the work of the stomach, liver, intestines, heart, lungs, kidneys, glands, etc. The more food eaten the more work these already overworked organs are called upon to perform. How can increasing the work of these organs help the sick? If feeding does not prevent sickness how may overfeeding restore health?--Chap X
"On May 18th, 1933, one of the physicians attending Ghandi; during his fast at that time, reported that on that day, the tenth day of his fast, "despite his 64 years, from a physiological point of view, the Indian leader was as healthy as a man of forty."--Chap XV
"Most men can understand eating to get strong," says Dr. Tilden, "but it takes a long time to educate them to stop eating to get strong." --Chap XVI

As insightful and accurate as his insights are, Shelton, like many authors, was limited in certain ways by the worldview of his culture and times. Consequently, certain content in Fast & Grow Young may not pass today's standards of political correctness. However, do not let this deter you from full appreciation of Shelton's work. The reader who can make allowances for and dig beyond the biases of Shelton's time will uncover a premise that is, at its core, unassailable: that in his quest for health and youthful vitality, man is best served by looking to nature for guidance and to experience the restorative and rejuvenative and seemingly miraculous effects that fasting produces, and returning to the coded condition of perfect health, long life and the fountain of youth."--Walt Goodridge
