The total fast is abstinence from all food. Drink generous amounts of water. A simple herb tea may be included in the total fast. The partial fast includes fresh fruit or a vegetable broth and small amounts of plain, whole grain bread to be taken the regular mealtime. Ending a fast is just as important as the fast itself. Break a fast with simply prepared fruit, vegetable, and whole grain (cereal) foods. Eat no more than two or three varieties of food at a meal. Do not overeat! Use the simple diet for the same number of days that were spent fasting.

What is Ear coning?
This is an ancient Egyptian ritual that has been around for thousands of years. Ear coning is now practiced worldwide as an alternative health choice. A hollowed out cone shaped candle is inserted in the ear canal about ½ inch. The other end of the candle is lit creating heat which softens the ear wax; the vacuum draws it up into the candle.
Ear coning is said to help detoxify the sinuses, lymph congestion, earache, plugged ears, sore throat, allergies, and chronic headaches. It aids in the removal of ear wax, yeast, and fungus; as well as, various debris. Ear candling has been known to help with summer’s ear, some cases of vertigo, ringing in the ears, and TMJ.
Please note that this procedure makes no medical claims and can only be done on healthy ears; which mean, none infected ears, holes in the ear drum, implants within or concerning the ear, tubes in the ear, and any medical contraindication.
