Medical starvation

Medical starvation is considered one of effective methods of treatment (contribution to treatment) a number of diseases, including diseases of cardiovascular system, diseases of a respiratory organs, allergic diseases, problems with a gastrointestinal tract and urination. On a thicket medical starvation is used as recreational procedure.

It should be noted that contraindications to medical starvation represent also long list of problems with health at which refusal of food can become the aggravating factor and lead to fast development of an illness.

However the question of indications and contraindications is relative. With the advent of new techniques and if medical starvation is carried out in specialized clinic under continuous control of physicians, the part of contraindications can be quite referred to indications.

Types of medical starvation

As it was already noted, types of medical starvation are in tens. Their essence consists in coercion of an organism to use the stocks which each of us has. Total absence of food mobilizes the hidden resources of a human body that inevitably leads to certain changes in the scheme of its functioning. These changes also allow to recover, or, at least, to achieve positive takes in fight against illnesses about which the speech will go further.

You should not confuse medical starvation to such concept as medical diets. In the latter case reception of any food described in a diet all the same happens. Therefore the principles by which starvation and a medical diet give effect significantly differ.

We are obliged to warn that refusal of food by any method is the most serious stress for an organism therefore it is necessary to prepare for it. You should not choose elaborate techniques from the very beginning, it is the best of all to begin about idle time, but the checked scheme of water starvation and only after it gave positive shifts, and the organism got used to new operating conditions, it is possible to begin experiments.

It is difficult to allocate the most popular types of medical starvation therefore we will list those which are recommended most often by specialists, and enthusiasts use. Certainly the mentioned standard method of starvation is on the first place (which also call complete or water starvation). The alternative to it is made by so-called dry starvation. The three of leaders is closed by the combined look which integrates in itself(himself) a standard method and dry starvation.

Separately It should be noted urinovy starvation which has many admirers. The most popular author of one of techniques is, perhaps, Gennady Malakhov. Also there is an urinovy starvation according to Erofeyev of V.A. Inogd it integrate with a usual method so the mixed starvation turns out.

Indications to medical starvation

We will give the list of those diseases below, successful treatment or decrease in symptoms of which is helped by medical starvation. At once we are said that the full list is much wider than the fact that it will be given, we focus attention on the main problems with health at which temporary and competent refusal of food can be useful.

The main indications to medical starvation it is atherosclerosis (obstruction of arteries aterosklerozny plaques), the problems with arterial pressure (both raised, and lowered), stenocardia of 1-3 classes, a varicosity of legs, an ischemic heart disease, arrhythmia.

The fact that the organism will spend some time without food, but is obligatory with regular intake of liquid, allows to carry out clarification. So after procedure your body will be updated, steady against many diseases and looked younger.

Except physical resources medical starvation stirs up also cerebration, including its creative component. For this reason it is recommended to resort to procedure by that who prepares for delivery of difficult examination, scientific work, literary or the piece of music.

Contraindications to medical starvation

Противопоказания при лечебном голоданииBefore to resort to any method of starvation, it is necessary to address the specialist who will be able to observe you throughout the entire period of procedure first of all. Also professional doctor will prompt what contraindications to medical starvation at you exist, and will not allow any refusal of food if it can lead to negative effects.

All contraindications to medical starvation can be shared into two groups: relative and absolute. Relative contraindications are those diseases at which medical starvation can theoretically give a positive effect, but at the same time the high risk of an aggravation of symptoms of the patient remains. In such cases carrying out procedure in a hospital of specialized clinic or sanatorium where at any time there are professional doctors capable to give help will be the best option. Absolute contraindications – those diseases at which is strictly forbidden to refuse food.

The main relative contraindications to medical starvation:

Once again we will note that it is especially important not to make any decisions concerning use of a method independently: medical starvation has to be made only after survey of the doctor and his positive decision on the matter.

As medical starvation works

Our organism is initially ready to various stressful situations, and hunger is just such case. All of us perfectly know that the person can live without food not one day, but the few think of those processes which happen during this time.

And processes happen the following: medical starvation is a controlled stress, for the adequate answer to which organism is reconstructed. Biochemical processes change to use earlier uninvolved resources of an organism. At the same time the metabolism becomes optimum, the organism itself destroys toxins and takes out them from an organism. As a source of receiving food own fats, proteins and carbohydrates are used. For optimum use of limited resources all processes which happen in fabrics and members of the body become the most effective.

The general rejuvenation, clarification of an organism, increase of immunity and resistance to many diseases is result of such changes. And when the period of starvation comes to the end, the organism still a long time keeps the updated, effective form. However not only medical starvation, but also an exit from it is in this situation especially important.

Food after medical starvation

In the same way as the look and duration of starvation, volume, the list and frequency of food after an exit from starvation, has to be defined by the doctor on the basis of indications. Those changes which were made with an organism by medical starvation mean that else a long time the person will use medical diets.

The specialist always has to specify the list of products and a form of their use, however some common features nevertheless have medical diets after starvation. So, all food needs to be crushed that it was better acquired and to use in the small portions of 4-6 times a day (is defined by the doctor). Besides to the patient fasting days which have to be carried out oh by frequency are appointed.

Basis of dietary food for the period after starvation porridges (buckwheat and pearl-barley) make, black bread of coarse flour, vegetables and vegetable soups, unsweetened fruit, fast meat and fish, fermented milk products (cottage cheese, cheese – it is obligatory with the minimum content of fats).
