"My studies and experiences have led me inevitably to the conclusion that the loss of blood is pathological and that it is in no sense a natural (normal) or necessary part of the physiological process of ovulation...."
"Those of us who go in for sports, exploration and other physically demanding activities, know, that the length of the period usually stands in direct proportion to our physical condition. If the latter is top-notch, as it is apt (likely) to be after systematic training, the menstrual time is shortened and the loss of blood reduced to a minimum. Every so often, under such conditions, the menses disappear altogether, and this disappearance invariably corresponds with our highest peak of health."
Since all the signs of ovulation have returned to me, (oh yeah!) perhaps I'm healthier than I thought I was: my blood-flow (which stopped in 1998 at a highly stressful and unhealthy time) never returned.
Since 1998, however, I have fasted 5 times, with a 9, 13, 16, 22, and 32-day fast (if I remember them correctly.) I had my first (9-day) fast in the year 2000. The 32-day fast was in the spring of 2007 and I was also painting 1-3 drops of magnetized Iodine on my arm.
