Day Twelve


1) Lean body mass: 113 lbs

2) Body fat: 5%

3) Pulse: 49

4) Body Temperature: 97.3. Several days ago my temp was 95.0; that is dangerously low. Well, after reading up on hypothermia, I took some action. I turned the heat up in my apartment, put on some extra layers of clothing, put on more bed clothing, and that did the trick. My temperature this morning was hovering in the area of 97.3. I would have had to stop my prayer and fasting is it got below 95.00 because that is in a dangerous area.

5) Blood pressure: 112 over 70. My blood pressure has always been low ----120 over 80 is optimal: 160 over 100, is Grade 1 hypertension (mild), etc.

6) Body fluid’s pH display: 5.5, the same as it has been for some time, seems like it is going to remain this way, and without eating healthy food, I can’t do anything about it, but it still 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 has any calcium or vitamin D for ten 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: 119 lbs I have been losing just one pound per day. That is great.

8) Mental and emotional conditions: my memory is at times a little foggy. My mental capacity is slipping a little. I have a difficult time working on the computer. My thinking has also slowed down. Most likely, the reason is that the brain uses more cholesterol (good fat) than any other organ in the body, and my cholesterol has always been low, and therefore I am feeling its effect.

9) Spiritual experiences: I did much valuable praying last night in bed when there was no sleep in me. I am still extremely optimistic. Repeating, the reason for lack of 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. This world can give us almost everything we need. 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 again, to just lie around and therefore conserve energy. I get a little tipsy at times, and feel lightheaded occasionally. There are times I am energetic and times that I can hardly stand up, but I guess that is expected, since I haven’t eaten for 12 days. I try to drink as much water as possible, but it is difficult. I tried warming the water a bit and sip it as if I was drinking juice or coffee. That seemed to work better.

11) Daily activities: Listen to the New Testament 2.5 for hours. Drove the car to the bank to have a bunch of bank statements shredded. Did more house cleaning. Worked on the computer for an hour or so, to respond to a long comment left on "Day One’ post.

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.

what do you think will happen if your fast works?

Dear Jane, thanks much for your pertinent question. To my knowledge, there is no reason why God is not working genuine miracles and healings in the wide open without limit, in the 21st century. I hope this fast and prayer will make me available for Him to do just that. And if, by some chance, my prayers are not answered, that means, He has a special reason not to take advantage this meager piece of skin and bones. How long this will take, I really don’t know, and still, I will know when it is time to quite by warnings from my vital signs, along with when I am close to being incapacitated. JC
