The Fountain of Youth World Summit with Dr. Gabriel Cousens, the founder of Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center and author of "Conscious Eating" and "Spiritual Nutrition."

GABRIEL: The reason people don't have energy is the term that Paul Brad coined as "autointoxication."

KEVIN: Okay, explain that.

GABRIEL: What it means is really the toxins, in my opinion, it's primarily bowel toxins.

KEVIN: A-ha.

GABRIEL: Build up in the system, and really cause general weakness in every muscle, and affect your mind, and affect all your organ systems. They poison the system. And most people again, suffer ... from bowel autointoxication. Auto meaning yourself, toxifying yourself.


GABRIEL: Mostly it's through our lifestyle, and also primarily through our food. So when we fast in a good setting, meaning fresh air, fresh water in a kind of relaxed setting, so your body can let go, this is very important principle here. Dr. ...was one a natural doctor, who in the turn of 19th century, talked about and he basically said that you had a buildup and a lot of people are so toxic that they couldn't really respond - the bodies couldn't respond. It was only when they began to detoxify, and then they can build up a kind of a deeper life force energy.

KEVIN: A-ha.

GABRIEL: You see, and so that's what we're talking about. And when we're fasting, we're really feasting. Now, what do I mean by a feast? Well, there are 4 forces of nature that we feast on - air, sunlight, water and earth.


GABRIEL: And when you look at our life today, what we find is that the air is not pure. The sunlight is blocked because the atmosphere is cloudy. Then most people can't see the sky at night, right?

KEVIN: A-ha.

GABRIEL: In the least, we can still see that where we are in Patagonia, but most of people can't see the sky at night. There's you know, tremendous amount of smog, pollution. So suddenly your ability to draw prana with vital life force in the air is greatly diminished.

KEVIN: A-ha.

GABRIEL: Same with the water. Water is all kinds of toxins, and plus chlorine, fluorine in many cases, and so, literally it's a poison to the system. Now, when I say poison, I mean explicitly chlorine and fluorine are explicit poisons. Chlorine specifically blocks our enzyme function in many, many places in the body, and process all kinds of problems. We do not want to get all over into that but at least in the principle. So, water. Now, the air of course we need, the sunlight we need, and the clean water, and then the earth is the food element. And the juices are pure earth and water element. And so, suddenly you're feasting on those elements, and you're being able to pull in the life force or prana from those elements and that rejuvenates you.


GABRIEL: That's a very important thing. So, does that mean you can't fast and say yes you can fast in the city, but it is nowhere near the same result because you're not really being able to pull in those 4 forces of nature which actually activate every body.

KEVIN: Okay, so those 4 aspects of nature are the basic principles of fasting. So say someone is, you know, realizes now after this call that they might have bowel toxicity which as we've established they already do. You know, how would they go about putting some of those together to create something that will help them feel better, look better, live better.

GABRIEL: Right. Well, the first thing is you know if you're going to do fasting and I recommend instead of long fast because it's a lot of time and energy, and if people don't know how to do it, it can a be little depleting, now we use it more as the fast, long faster more is medications, if you follow what I'm saying.


GABRIEL: I'll give you an example of how powerful it can be. There's a lady who is for 5 years hospitalized in a mental hospital, and she's on lots of medications. She was grossly overweight from her stay in the hospital and so forth and so on, and also her medications. When she first got here, she could barely walk 25 yards.

KEVIN: A-ha.

GABRIEL: After 2 weeks of fasting, she was off all her medication and she was beginning to function and she went 85 days. She lost an enormous amount of weight. She became this very beautiful 26-year-old lady, and her depression left her, and she can walk up the mountain. We have a mountain ... high where we are you know after about a month. I mean, it was a total rejuvenation on mind, body and spirit, simply with the fasting focus. I mean, she took our zero point course which is of course a psycho- spiritual course, but it was the fasting that really did it. And she never went back to the hospital.

KEVIN: Wow! And, and what brought her there? For that hope? The hope to be able to do that?

GABRIEL: Yeah, I don't know how she got there. I'm not sure but she was actually from Mexico and her family had sent her to a place in Boston, the very famous mental hospital in Boston, and they put her on medication, and she was just stuck in the hospital. I guess they let her go out in a break and she came.

KEVIN: A-ha. That's great.

GABRIEL: She had learned about us, "The Tree of Life" in the website but that's the point, that's the long term. Now, those are the kinds of things that happen. You know. Now, we're using fasting also medically for high blood pressure and also for diabetes.


GABRIEL: We have what you call 21-day plus diabetic program and literally within 4 days while people are fasting, and this is a medical thing, OK, so you won't do this on your own, we have people off their insulin and other on no medications for days, and pretty much within a few weeks, their blood sugars come to normal.


GABRIEL: So, because we're - this is one of the great things about fasting is it actually after about a week , minimum, it resets your genetic expression and turns on the anti-aging genes, the anti-inflammatory genes, that's one of the reasons that is so good for arthritis, anticancer genes, and antioxidant genes. So, you're really literally upgrading your genetic expression. Literally now, this is experimentally shown. It is not a metaphor.


GABRIEL: So, those are things that I have. So really a 1-week fast twice a year, 4 times a year if you can do it is a really good thing.


GABRIEL: Really good thing because it really supports you in a lot of ways, and it keeps you - your bowel toxicity at a very minimum. And what happens to is people go back in the world, it's like "Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh, this is really hard!" and they start to fall back into old habits although we do a lot of support work in between but it's nevertheless the thing that really works is they come back, and they fast, and they get good. I have a poem here by Rumy, and it really speaks to it. And upon this, there's a hidden sweetness in the stomach's emptiness. We are loots, no more or no less. If the sound box is tough, full of anything, no music. If the brain and belly are burning clean with fasting, every moment a new song comes out of the fire. The fog clears. A new energy makes you run up the steps in front of you. Be emptier and cry like reed instruments cry. Emptier, write secrets with the reed pen. When you are full of food and drink, say dance sets where your spirit should. An ugly mental statue instead of the Kabah. When you fast, good habits gather like friends who want to help. Fasting is all interim. Don't give it to some illusion and lose your power. But easily if you have, if you have lost all will and control and they come back when you fast. Like soldiers appearing out of the ground, pellets flying above them, a table descends to your tense. Jesus' table, expect to see it when you fast. This table spread with other food better than the broth of cabbages. That's really in his poetry book Open Secrets.

KEVIN: Wow. That's great.

GABRIEL: It tells you the whole story right there.
