The FASTest Way to a Healthier Life.
When my wife first mentioned that she wanted me to join her at a Fasting Retreat in Taiwan, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical. As all husbands should do, we must, at times, give in to our wife’s request, and take the least line or resistance.
So off to Taiwan it was for my wife and I along with our daughter.
As we landed in Kaohsiung, and started to drive through the green mountainous landscape towards the Retreat, I could not help but feel a sense of tranquility, although the thought of going for 6-7 days with no food, also had me trembling from the fear of the un-known. I was really happy to be going with my family to this beautiful spot, but just how much fun was this going to be. I had major doubts.
Fast forward to day number Seven and we are preparing to depart. (I have purposely left out the details of the seven days of which you will have to find out by yourself)
The days actually went by faster then I thought, and my experience was less painful than I had envisioned. In fact, I am leaving with a renewed sense of self and wellbeing like I have never felt before. I feel empowered, enlightened, renewed, energetic, enthusiastic, healthier and proud of my accomplishment all at the same time. I have found a new direction in my personal life, with new knowledge that empowers me to do what is right for my mind and body.
In addition to looking considerably younger (according to my wife), loosing weight and feeling like a million dollars, I had three amazing instant health results. The first was an ongoing Burning Tongue Syndrome (BTS). This was a problem that was reoccurring for many years and is quite painful. Western Doctors had no solution for me. The second was severe pain in both my elbows, to the point where I could not sleep at night or do normal chores with my arms. The third was my elevated Blood Pressure- this morning it was 120/70, which is not bad for a man approaching 60 years (on no medication). From day I left the resort up to today, almost four months, all these issues are gone from my life, hopefully never to return again.
These miraculous results would be in themselves enough to make this effort well worth the time. But I must tell you of something I left there with that is almost more valuable than these instant health benefits. It is the understanding that I myself hold the keys to my own health and wellbeing. I don’t rely on any western doctor or pharmaceutical companies. Through the knowledge that I received from my time at the Retreat, I learned that most, if not all our health problems can be resolved with natural procedures and exercises available to anyone willing to take the time to learn. Additionally benefits such as improved mental health, improved relationships and overall sense of happiness will all be forever changed for the better.
It is no doubt, and no words need to be exchange between us to fully understand and appreciate that I have made friends for life in Master Su and Su Mama. A day does not pass by that I don’t think of them and how they changed my life. What profound and lasting impact they have had and continue to have in so many people’s lives. They are truly inspired with God’s Love and Blessings, as you will experience for yourself.
If you have not already done so, then encourage you to take this journey for yourself. If you have already taken this path, then I encourage you to do it again, as I plan to do. Knowledge is a cup that is never full, a cup that always has room for more.
I am forever grateful for this unforgettable experience.
