I’m definitely ready to feel better and think about choices that will help me remain positive and healthy. I’m familiar with the many benefits of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and scored when I discovered that Paul and his daughter, Patricia Bragg wrote, The Miracle of Fasting: Proven throughout History for physical, Mental, Spiritual Rejuvenation book. When I discovered that animals in the wild naturally stop eating when they get sick, I figured, I’m pretty wild, I’m in. Fasting has helped me get over sickness in a day in the past after a 24 hour water fast, but I digress, what does Patricia Bragg have to say.
