Day Eight


1) Lean body mass: A little over 115 lbs

2) Body fat: A little less than 6 %

3) Pulse: 52

4) Body Temperature: 96.0

5) Blood pressure: 113 over 68----120 over 80 is optimal: 160 over 100, is Grade 1 hypertension (mild), etc.

6) Body fluid’s pH display: 5.0 This level of acidity is extremely unhealthy. The reason for a very low pH is this: the two main ingredients needed to keep the body fluids alkaline are calcium and vitamin D. Calcium comes from calcium rich foods and supplementation, like coral calcium, and the main source of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunshine; a poor source is from synthetic supplements. It is literally impossible to get enough vitamin D from food sources, since the majority of natural foods are almost void of natural vitamin D. Acidic body fluids is one of the main reasons for much of the sickness and disease in the world today. So I can understand why my body fluids are so low; I haven’t had any calcium or vitamin D for eight days. I am certain I will survive until the end of my time of prayer and fasting. My pH has always been from 7.0 to 7.5. ------ 7.0 is neutral; any digits below 7.0 is acidic; any digits above 7.0 is alkaline. Most healthy people, especially the young, will usually have readings in the alkaline range, while most older people will have readings in the acidic range--that spells trouble.

7) Weight: 123 lbs. Again, that’s great, I lost just one pound in 24 hours.

8) Mental and emotional conditions: my memory is at times a little foggy. My mental capacity is also slipping a little. Most likely, the reason is that the brain uses more cholesterol than any other organ in the body, and my cholesterol has always been low, and therefore I am feeling its effects.

9) Spiritual experiences: The reason for such little strong faith in the world nowadays is because of our modern, sophisticated lifestyle. Faith in spiritual matters is not needed, since our present-day culture has made it just about obsolete. Therefore, will we have enough faith to overcome this enormous barrier? The only way that will be possible is if that power is given to us by God.

10) Physical condition : I decided to just lay around today, and conserve energy. It feels good to lie down; actually it makes me feel normal.

11) Daily activities: Listened to the New Testament, 5.25 hours. Rest all day, something I have never been able to do before.

How will all the above figures and attitudes continually change my life/our lives in the uncomfortable and extreme conditions of prayer and fasting? Physically, your guess is as good as mine, but spiritually I am extremely optimistic. In the next few weeks, hopefully, we will find out.
