The method of starvation in Nikolaev

The method of starvation, developed by Nikolayev, is a classic method of fasting, but it also has some peculiarities.

The basis of medical practice was fasting of medium terms - up to 20-21 day, less often than a longer period. This is due primarily to the fact that the treatment was carried out in a hospital, where longer periods are simply unacceptable for a number of reasons, although the clinic used fasting for longer periods. During such starvation, the patient is under the constant supervision of doctors and in the circle of like-minded people. On the one hand - the constant observation of physicians helps to avoid complications during fasting, on the other - it reduces its own responsibility for its condition. Communication with like-minded people allows you to more closely treat the method of starvation, it is better to understand it and take treatment.

Another feature is a series of additional procedures that enhance the curative effect of starvation:

- daily enemas;

- regular walks in the fresh air for at least several hours a day;

- use of broth of wild rose during fasting;

- physio procedures;

- massage and self-massage;

- water procedures.

All this allows, even using fasting medium-term, to achieve good results in a number of diseases. Here is how the method of fasting and regenerative nutrition describes Yu.S. Mykolayiv:

"Here is a brief summary of what I believe everyone should know, who wants to be treated with dosed starvation, because the first conditions for the success of the method are sufficient awareness of the patient and the absence of fear of this type of therapy ...

At admission the patient first of all undergoes a detailed examination, including a therapist, neuropathologist and a number of other specialists. They make biochemical analyzes of blood, urine, feces, take an electrocardiogram, an electroencephalogram, measure blood pressure, pulse, determine weight, etc. Then the patient is invited for an interview, which, together with him, determines the expected duration of fasting - it depends on the age, characteristics of the disease, survey indicators. The usual course of fasting 25 - 30 days, and only in rare cases 35 - 40 days. In total, for the entire period of fasting, patients lose weight, as we already know, on average 12 - 18% of the initial weight.

So, a decisive step has been taken - the patient psychologically adjusted to starvation. Now physical preparation begins. First of all - an unpleasant procedure for cleansing the intestines with a large dose of bitter salt at lunch hours, and from that time, stopping any food, as well as the use of all medications.

The morning of the first day begins with a cleansing enema. It would seem that the laxative and enema should remove all waste from the stomach and intestines. It turns out, no. During the entire period of fasting, the patient is given an enema every day and removes waste from the body every day. This is usually very surprising to patients, but we already know that from the moment of spontaneous secretion in an organism that has switched to endogenous nutrition, the assimilation of own resources and the formation of feces similar to the original feces of newborns take place.

The following procedures are a bath and massage. The massage is done in a special way, called "pressing", in which skin hyperemia is achieved, especially in the spine, thoracic and cervical regions. Do you remember Pushkin's description of the famous Tiflis baths, where the bathhouse attendant literally "dances" on his client? Something similar happens with a pressing massage.

Massage and bath (or shower) are over, now you can "have breakfast". Patients drink the briar infusion. Then the minutes 20-30 rest and go for a walk. In the winter, they should be very warmly dressed, as during the fasting period there is an increased chilliness. During the walk, patients perform a complex of respiratory exercises. The walk continues until 13-14 hours, then "lunch". This is the same broth of wild rose or just water, and in some cases, "Borjomi". In the summer, when it's hot, the sick usually take a bottle of water with them for a walk, to which from time to time they are "attached." In a day, they usually drink 1,5-2 liters of water, although the amount is not limited.

In a day, patients receive physiotherapy procedures as prescribed by the doctor, taking into account the concomitant chronic somatic diseases (UHF, diathermy, Charcot's shower, pearl baths, etc.).

All free from sleep, procedures and walking time is important to take sick with occupational therapy, reading, board games. Here individual inclinations appear - some enthusiastically play chess, others read, paint, embroider. Evening watches are happily held behind the TV, young people are dancing.

Evening tea is served by the same broth of wild rose. At night, patients again drink, brush their teeth, caress the throat (mouth hygiene is very important in the period of fasting). They sleep as much as possible with maximum ventilation, but the heat is covered. In the last days of fasting, when the chilliness increases, for the night the patients are put warmers.

Such a regime of the day is observed throughout the entire period of fasting, and, what surprises people who are not familiar with the conduct of our treatment, the patients do not weaken, do not seek to lie. On the contrary, by the end of the term they often display more energy than at the beginning of fasting.

Usually in the first 3-5 days of fasting, the appetite disappears in patients, all natural conditioned conditioned reflexes fade. They are no longer irritated by the smell of food, the sound of cymbals. However, memories of food remain constantly, especially if patients are not distracted from thoughts about food. And here the installation of the patient for treatment and the trust in the treating doctor are of great importance.

Doctors help, their assignments are performed by nurses. Vigilant supervision, clarification, constant sympathy, and sometimes just kind advice are very much needed by our patients. Patients fall into unusual conditions - they have to abandon such a customary act as eating. Even pills for insomnia, valerian drops, goodies (sweets, cookies), that is, what is allowed in any hospital, we are not allowed. No matter how much the doctor explains the details of the method to the patient - there may be confusion, misunderstanding, additional questions. And then the nurse comes to the rescue. A great psychotherapeutic importance is also the contact of patients with those who have been helped by starvation treatment, reading books on this issue.

Clinical indicators of the completion of curative fasting are the appearance of appetite and fresh complexion, cleansing of the tongue from plaque, the disappearance of bad breath and almost complete cessation of feces after enema. However, sometimes, for a number of reasons, it is necessary to start feeding patients before the appearance of these indicators. But still the results of treatment remain positive.

No matter how painlessly and successfully the process of starvation proceeded, the transition to restoration is always perceived as a triumphant victory, as a holiday. Juices, fruits, uncomplicated food after fasting seem especially tasty. In the dining room we are always lively, cheerful.

The correctness of carrying out the recovery period has no less, if not more, value than fasting, and here it is necessary to constantly monitor the doctor and a well-developed individual diet therapy.

The way out of starvation is carried out according to the following scheme:

1. Juices (carrot, grape, apple) on 1 day are used diluted in half with water; in 2-th - undiluted; 4-5 day - fruits and carrots - in a grated kind; on 6-7-th day - porridge-porridge - buckwheat, millet, rice, "Hercules" (they are recommended thoroughly and very long chew).

2. The juice should be drunk in small sips; "chew" it, savor it, mixing it with saliva, which is very important.

3. The diet from 10 on 30-th day can be varied depending on the availability of products, adhering to vegetable and milk nutrition with the maximum content of vitamins and mineral salts.

4. In the absence of fresh fruits and vegetables, they can be replaced by an appropriate amount of canned or dried, but they need to be chewed even more carefully. It is advisable to increase walks in the fresh air.

5. Instead of kefir it is permissible to use any lactic acid products.

6. Ingredients of vinaigrette for a portion of 500 g (it is divided into two equal parts): boiled potatoes - 250 g, carrot crude tertaya - 100 g, beetroot cooked - 80 g, cabbage crude - 50 g, vegetable oil - 15 g, onion - 5 in

In a salad it is allowed to add a teaspoon of lemon juice.

In the table below, an approximate diet of the recovery period with RTD is given. This is a general scheme. However, in many cases (depending on the nature of the disease, the condition of the patient, his individual characteristics), it is required to depart from the scheme. Here there are various options. So, for example, if stomach ulcer or 12-duodenal ulcer often begins to recover not from juice, but from liquid, strained, mucous broth of oatmeal, "oatmeal" or buckwheat, gradually, day by day, increasing the concentration (density) of porridge. Sometimes the recovery can begin with whey from under fresh yogurt. Such a modification in some cases is also indicated for patients with allergic diseases - bronchial asthma, eczema, and diabetes mellitus, depending on the severity of the disease.

Use vegetable oil, especially the sick gastritis, with increased or decreased acidity, as well as suffering from ulcerative colitis should be carefully. However, for almost all diseases, it is necessary, if possible, to adhere to a diet with the maximum content of natural plant products. Animal proteins, including dairy, are usually introduced into the diet from the second week.

Cooking salt is completely excluded from food for the entire recovery period, because at this time it can cause exchange disturbances and swelling. It is also absolutely unacceptable to eat meat, meat products, mushrooms, eggs. And, of course, alcohol and smoking, strong tea and coffee are absolutely forbidden. You should avoid roasting. All these crispy brown crusts (fried meat, fish, potatoes, etc.) are delicious, but they are very hard to learn and even more difficult to distinguish. After all, they firmly remind plastic of their firmness, there are no such nutrients in nature, this is the invention of the man of the era of civilization. It is as a result of the abuse of fried, there are blockages of blood vessels, capillaries, varicose veins, and then thrombophlebitis. Some gourmets are so used to roasting everything-porridge, eggs, potatoes, sausages, etc.-that they can not eat simple food any more. These people usually gain considerable excess weight, quickly grow bald, suffer from constipation, high or low blood pressure and other numerous disorders.

For all that is harmful in normal conditions for the body - harmful triple the first months after the course of the RDT. Reserve, dear readers, patience, willpower, if you want to get from RDT only good.

The recovery period continues as long as abstinence from food lasted. Patients are recommended to follow the vegetable-milk diet with the maximum consumption of raw vegetables and fruits and in the future: in addition to the large content of vitamins and mineral salts, it provides the alkaline reaction of blood necessary for normal life of the body.

The daily routine of the patient during the recovery period remains approximately the same (walks, physiotherapy procedures, occupational therapy, active rest). Only in the very first days, some patients experience weakness, they develop an unstable mood, and they spend most of their time in bed. "
