Step by step and with numerous examples, the reader is introduced to the theoretical foundations of BiGu, a fasting technique based on the ancient, original Huang-Lao cultivation teachings. Besides the history of the fasting system and the effects of different diets on the human body, the development of the modern human nutritional requirements and the different phases of degeneration are examined. The comprehensive results of the previous publications enable an intuitive and easy access to the secrets of Ancient China. This volume takes up many familiar concepts again, explores them further, and breathes life into them using various application examples. The detailed explanations of well-known and new principles offer new perspectives on the image of the human body. The volume Fasting in the Dao Cultivation explains the development of diet-related diseases on the energetic level, as well as on the visual level. Furthermore, it describes the fasting system within the context of health promotion and inner cultivation. This book serves as a guide to detect the dangers and risks of incorrect fasting and it connects modern physiological knowledge with the wisdom of ancient texts. Thus, students, persons interested and cultivators alike gain insight into the great world of Bigu.
