12. The Law Of Conservation
This law is also known as the law of autolysis. Whenever nutritive abstinence is effected, the living organism's reserves are utilized. They are conserved and economized. Living structures are autolyzed in the inverse order of their usefulness while toxic substances are being eliminated in the inverse order of their chronological accumulation.
This law is also known and understood as the fasting principle; and it goes hand-in-hand with the Law of Special Economy to further illustrate the process by which nutritional reserves are utilized and poisons eliminated during a fast. It is important to understand the fasting process as a kind of disease pathology operating in reverse, while fasting the body effects a remission of toxicosis with the least amount of damage to the living organism. At all times the body protects its systemic integrity most advantageously. It is even more important to understand that fasting does not suddenly cause the body to discharge all the toxic and morbid accumulations in one complete action or reaction. Rather, the toxic accumulations are discharged in proportion to the manner and rate at which they were accumulated.
