Therapeutic starvation in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
Fasting, like no other method is very suitable for the treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. The complete absence of food gives a complete rest to the whole body of digestion. The organism needs to be allocated digestive juices, there is no need to push food through all parts of the intestine, there is no need to spend a lot of energy on dragging, turning, neutralizing and removing all those substances that come to us with food. Now all the forces can be directed to our own recovery, including the restoration of organs involved in digestion. A variety of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, as the rules are very well amenable to the treatment of starvation.
Here is what Yu.S. Nikolaev: “This is especially evident in the treatment of peptic ulcer diseases. Among our patients there were about 100 patients suffering from gastric ulcer or 12 duodenal ulcer. Many examples of the course of this disease could be cited, but I want to limit myself to only very illustrative cases. Before treatment, all of our patients showed a symptom of the so-called "niche" during X-ray examination, i.e. X-ray revealed a deepening of the gastric mucosa or 12 duodenal ulcer due to the presence of an ulcer. X-ray examination after the end of treatment in all cases showed the disappearance of the "niche", that is, it testified to the practical recovery of the patient. The patients tolerated fasting treatment, as a rule, easily, stomach pains usually stopped on the 3-5th day of fasting. On the 15-20th day, all complaints related to peptic ulcer disease disappeared. Positive results can be achieved even in the case of a long history of the disease. We had one patient S., 52 years old. He suffered from a duodenal ulcer for 12 years. For six years in a row he was treated in sanatoriums, but the disease still gave relapses. Over the past year, he was on sick leave for 13 days, of which 120 were in the hospital. For 90 days of medical fasting, the ulcer was completely healed. 15 years have passed - the disease does not recur. "
During therapeutic fasting, the gastric mucosa and duodenal mucosa are normalized and restored. This is manifested by a decrease and complete disappearance of pain syndrome, nausea, heartburn, and vomiting. There is scarring of fresh ulcers and resorption of scar changes in the walls of the stomach and duodenum. “As mentioned above, specialists from the Institute of Gastroenterology in Moscow found that as a result of 12 days of EAD in patients, new cells with light protoplasm appear in the stomach, which after the end of the EAD course are gradually transformed into additional cells within 12-28 days. These cells secrete mucus, substances that protect the stomach from damage. After repeated courses of EAD, even in gastroenterological patients, the stomachs become "tinned", capable of digesting any food. " / Voitovich GA / The mucous membrane of the small and large intestines is also restored. During fasting, independent stool is periodically noted, in which the presence of fecal stones is noted even after 20 days. Even those stuck fecal stones that cannot be cleared by any enemas are removed. During fasting, they gradually move away along with the old mucous membrane. Therefore, it is better not to do enemas during fasting, allowing the large intestine to rest and independently carry out all the necessary restorative procedures. This does not apply to cases when a person is just beginning to master fasting. Here enemas are simply necessary - they help remove deposits of fecal stones and facilitate fasting, reducing intoxication of the body.
Fasting is great for improving liver function. It causes a mild choleretic effect, restores liver cells. Patients with gallstone disease instinctively resort to fasting, which relieves pain and normalizes the liver and gallbladder. There is a natural cleansing baking - removing unnecessary products, dissolving stones.
Good results are observed in the treatment of such a formidable disease as acute pancreatitis: “In the clinic named after Spasokukotsky under the guidance of Academician A.N.Bakulev treated 275 patients with acute pancreatitis by starvation. All of them were discharged in satisfactory condition. Based on this experience, a conclusion was made about the advisability of using fasting in the treatment of pancreatitis, and our method is now widely used in acute and chronic forms of this disease. To obtain a good therapeutic effect, 10-15 days of fasting are usually sufficient. The main principle of treatment for pancreatitis is to relieve painful syndrome, eliminate shock, collapse, ensure functional rest of the pancreas, and eliminate intoxication ”/ Yu. S. Nikolaev /.
In addition to starvation, there is no method in which there is almost no stress on the digestive organs. Therefore, and it is not surprising that it is so effective in a variety of disorders in the work of the gastrointestinal tract. It remains to be surprised at the ignorance of our medicine, which instead of effective, fast, cheap treatment, uses expensive medications, long-term examinations, surgical interventions that not only do not lead to cure, but also make of it a chronic patient, living an inferior life and forever tied to services of doctors. Therefore, take responsibility for your health in your own hands, start starving and you will return a lost appetite, excellent digestion and a good, regular chair.
