MY 7 DAY RAW LIVING SPIRULINA FAST

My Journey to Trying Raw Living Spirulina

About a month prior to starting this fast I had a conversation with a gentleman named John. John and I were talking on the subject of nutrition and health. He was talking to me about how fit and healthy I looked. I reciprocated to him how healthy he looked. Then he said, “hold on, I want to show you something.” He went to get it, and that something would set into action something I never would have imagined trying.

John went to get a brochure, of sorts, with information about a company I had never heard of before. He handed me this brochure then proceeded to tell me how his life and his families’ lives have forever been changed because of this product. You see John was diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer that left the medical proffessionals to believe John wouldn’t be around for much longer. He and his wife believed if they changed his diet, his health would improve. So that’s exactly what they did, but he says the most important change he made was incorporationg Raw Living Spirulina into his daily diet. At this point the hairs on my body are standing and goosebumps cover my body.

That’s not all though. John goes on to tell me about his son and how he was on the autism spectrum. They changed his diet and incorporated the Raw Living Spirulina as well. Now, his son goes to college, is extremely smart, and is no longer on the autism spectrum. Chills run up my back at this point. To say I’m extremely interested in this product would be an understatement. I left this conversation wanting to know as much about Raw Living Spirulina as I possibly could.

So You’re Probably Wondering What Raw Living Spirulina is?

Raw Living Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is alive. It’s been around for billions of years helping to create the Earth’s atmosphere. Raw Living Spirulina is the worlds first superfood, and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on Earth.

Spirulina became famous after it was successfully used by NASA as a dietary supplement for astronauts on space missions. It has the ability to modulate immune functions and exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the release of histamine by mast cells. Multiple studies investigating the efficacy and the potential clinical applications of Spirulina in treating several diseases have been performed and a few randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews suggest that this algae may improve several symptoms and may even have anticancer, antiviral and antiallergic effects.

Nutritional Profile of Raw Living Spirulina:

Contains every vitamin, except vitamin D (which we get from the sun)

Contains every mineral and trace element our bodies require.

Contains an abundance of antioxidants.

Contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is a complete protein.

Contains omega 3 fatty acids in the form of ALA, EPA, and DHA, making it a powerful food to aid in reducing inflammation, promoting healthy cells, and keeping skin beautiful.

Contains omega 6 fatty acids. Primarily used for energy. Raw Living Spirulina contains the highest GLA known, second only to mothers breast milk. 

Contains Bioactive Enzymes. 

Contains a wealth of powerful living phytonutrients.

Contains Chlorophyl.

Benefits of Raw Living Spirulina:

Spirulina provides a wide range of health benefits almost immediately upon ingestion. 

Works the fastest on an empty stomach because there is no fiber and cellulose in Spirulina. So the body will assimilate the nutrients immediately into the blood through the epicellular wall in the stomach. Raw Living Spirulina bypasses the digestive track to be absorbed instantaneously in the body. 

Raw Living Spirulina is going to take the toxins out of my body and replace it with the nutrients my body needs. It’s a constant cleaning and feeding of the body. 

It provides a near-instantaneous boost to one’s energy, while helping to improve muscle strength and endurance while reducing fatigue. 

It helps improve the immune system, and provides exceptional support for the heart, liver, and kidneys. 

Spirulina is also a natural detoxifier, oxygenating the blood, and helping cleanse the body of toxins and other impurities that may be causing illnesses or other health complications.

Spirulina is also a natural appetite suppressant, and it helps to improve the body’s digestive system. 

It also has very powerful antioxidant properties and it helps to balance the body’s pH, thereby reducing inflammation throughout the body.

Preparing For The 7 Day Raw Living Spirulina Fast.

First, I contacted Mr. Timothy White, owner of the company Raw Living Spirulina for advice to how I should approach this seven day fast with his product. Tim informed me that his company holds these types of fasts yearly around the world and suggested I use some specific biometric devices. He recommended I take daily 16oz (1 jar) of Raw Living Spirulina with fresh coconut water, use a body composition scale and a ketone and blood glucose monitoring system. So I bought the devices he recommended and I also chose to use a sleep monitoring device as well.

The Biometric Devices That I Used 

I used a Body Composition Scale. It provided data for 11 full-body measurements. 

I also used a Ketone and blood glucose monitoring system. The reason I used this device was to monitor blood glucose, but to also see if I was in ketosis. Being in Ketosis is when your body burns fat as fuel rather than using glucose as its source of energy. 

I also used an Oura Ring that monitored calories burned, REM sleep, Deep sleep, sleep quality and body tempurature.

Closing Thoughts

I feel this is a bittersweet ending. While on one hand I’m ready to eat solid foods again, on the other hand I’m going to miss the discipline and dedication it took to fast for an entire week. I truly feel grateful for crossing paths with John and how his story led me on a path to experience spiritual enlightenment and deepen my gratitude, really for life in general.
