Autophagy: Fulfilment of Two Of God's Promises To Mankind

in veterans •  6 months ago  (edited)

Two of God's promises to His Creation and not just His followers is His unending love for us and that He is the Great Physician. Anyone who has ever prayed for someone's well being and believed that their plea was in vain may take heart that just praying for someone is a miss-directed understanding of "Great Physician. Don't get me wrong, any and every prayer is important, useful, and I believe heard. However, once you understand autophagy you might look at the need for a greater engagement and sacrifice in healing than a prayer.

Autophagy is the power within every living creature on earth to heal wounds and purge disease from it's body. This ability seems to be in our DNA and passed perfectly down from one generation to the next. Wait a minute! As any evolutionist will tell you NOTHING gets handed down from generation to generation PERFECTLY. Mutations happen. It is not possible that something like autophagy can be handed down perfectly since the beginning of time. But it does to every species on earth. The discretionary brilliance of autophagy never diminishes with each generation of every living creature since the beginning. This simply is not possible unless every living thing is a "new creation" by a loving God. We can hand down disabilities, deformities, and weaknesses to the next generation, but even those unfortunate souls have a perfectly functioning autophagy system. So if everyone has it, everyone can use it. However, here is where Man's wisdom and God's wisdom parts ways once again.

The discretionary brilliance I spoke of is the ability of autophagy to remove trash, disease, and toxins from the body without touching anything vital. Clearly there is a Divine intelligence at work here and embedded in each new living creature on earth. The downside to autophagy is that there is a need for sacrifice to engage it. A little of autophagy is engaged every night when we sleep, but to understand its full power and engage its full potential takes just a little more sacrifice that falling asleep at night. This is where your journey to find out for yourself what this is all about begins. If not for you, maybe a loved one who is facing acute disease or an ongoing health issue that has plagued them for years. The link below is a good starting point.

Quite a journey we are all on :-)

Ok......I'm getting the message. In trying to find the article you recommended, ie. 'Autophagy The Power,' I am getting immersed in your other very interesting articles on fasting and believe I have been guided by God to do so. I'm trying not to think about the 'downside,' meaning the sacrifice, but as I've proven before and as you have obviously already proven, it is well worth the sacrifice @chuck2u32

Today I am starting a new fast. A true water only fast. In all previous fasts I refused to give up my beloved coffee, but it has been irritating my stomach and causing pain. I'm giving a talk tonight to our church board on fasting. The pastor asked us to fast and pray for guidance in our leadership of the church and there was some groaning among the several of us. I'm giving the talk tonight having eaten my last meal last night at supper and without the mental acuity that caffeine gives me. Could be a flop, but I'll have to trust God which is what fasting is all about. Here is a link to the 'power' article: https://steemit.com/islam/@chuck2u32/autophagy-the-power-of-healing-from-within-given-to-each-of-us-and-every-other-living-thing

All the best with your talk......although you've probably already shared your knowledge on the subject by now. The worst that can happen by fasting your regular coffee is headaches which are not very pleasant at all. How long do you expect to be on this fast Chuck?

Thanks for the link. I will look forward to reading that later on today. Blessings.

For some reason last night I felt lead to decline to give the talk. Instead, when the pastor asked if we had any delights in the Lord this past month, I offered that I started out fasting for selfish reasons, but as I lost 70 pounds and rid my body of three "incurable" diseases it became the most spiritual experience in my life. After I said that the pastor said that he will soon set aside time for me to give the talk at a meeting and invite others in the church to attend. If I'd given the talk last night he was going to make it
optional and that board members who were not interested could leave. That is why God wanted me to wait. My testimony last night turned out to be a "tease" and some are now VERY interested in the information.

My fast is open ended. I would like to do at least 7 days, but my wife is not on-board with my fasting life style. She gets more combative with each passing day. I know that it comes from a place of love, but also from ignorance. She refuses to even read or listen to any information on fasting.

Sounds like you gave just enough information to pique a lot of people's interest. You must be looking forward to sharing more of your very positive testimony. It is sad that you don't have your wife's full support at the moment but prayer can change everything. The longer she sees the improvement in your health, the more she will soften in her resistance hopefully.

Have you fasted for seven days before?

I've done 6 days, but not 7 yet. Right now I'm sidelined for fasting. I've injured my stomach lining by taking supplement pills during fasting on an empty stomach. I'll let it heal for a couple months using restricted time eating and low-carb/keto dieting to keep the weght off that I have lost so far.

That's an important fact to consider when fasting Chuck. I'm glad you brought it up. Sounds like a good plan to allow the healing to take place before doing another extended fast. How will you get around that problem if you need the supplements? Would consuming a couple of tablespoons of natural yogurt prior to taking supplements be considered cheating?

There is a formula for maintaining electrolyte balance that is used by tens of thousands of fasters. Its odd name is "snake juice". It was created by a rather bombastic fitness trainer by the name of Cole Robinson. He provides the formula at no charge. He even tells you where to buy the ingredients from local sources. Here it is.
Snake Juice Recipe:
Water=2L
Potassium chloride =1 tsp (No Salt)
Sodium chloride = 1/2 tsp (Himalayan Pink Salt)
Sodium Bicarbonate = 1 tsp (Baking Soda)
Magnesium Sulphate = 1/2 tsp (Food Grade Epsom Salts)

I purchased the No Salt and pink salt at Walmart and the magnesium at Walgreen's pharmacy. Next time I fast, if I experience cramping or any other electrolyte imbalance I'll just take in a glass of snake juice.
