The universe offers me the marvellous opportunity of chatting with Lídia Blánquez, multidisciplinary therapist, specialist in the treatment of illnesses by the little-known instrument of fasting, about which she wrote the book “Del ayuno a la conciencia” (From Fasting to Consciousness).
Lidia is a charismatic woman, sweet, radiant and bursting with energy, despite the fact that she is four days into her latest fast. I can feel the passion she has for her work, for knowing the human body and its evolution, and the potential she makes available in order to help her patients find peace, to take charge of their lives, to heal…
Lídia Blánquez is currently the director of the Lidia Biosalud center in Barcelona. She conceived the “urban fasting” concept, for which she created a set of therapeutic vegetable broths.
Lidia, thank you for being. Here is our chat.
How did you first become involved in natural therapies?
From early childhood I had a special sensibility for many things and other levels of conscience. I struggled to prove to the world that I was not crazy and that what I saw was real. But then I had scoliosis.
And this is when you began to experiment within yourself?
Yes, but first I saw how an eighteen-year-old boy cured my mother. She had a problem with her nervous system, her doctors had no treatment for it. Her legs shivered and moved constantly, she compulsively moved her legs. He looked at her from a distance and told her: "They operated on your uterus and they left you with gangrenous nerve ramifications. But don't worry". Then the boy sat down, held his hand toward her without touching her and said: “From now on you won’t be ill anymore“.
Did he cure her?
Yes! And I was flabbergasted because I could not understand how that boy could possibly know that she had had an operation and what her illness was. It seemed impossible! He was a normal guy, he was not an extraterrestrial! So I told myself: “If he can do it, so can I!”.
You felt capable…
Yes. But then I was diagnosed with scoliosis. I worked hard because physically I was able to correct it in each session through breathing exercises, but I was very tired. I gave up on everything. They wanted to operate on me from top to bottom but I refused. They warned me I would end up in a wheelchair and that I would not be able to have children if I refused the operation… I ran out of the doctor’s office thinking: “It doesn’t matter, I trust something else and I do not want to stay here.” So I began studying: massage, sports massage, therapeutic massage, lymphatic massage, osteopathy, physiotherapy… I was treating patients at a physical and structural level and I greatly enjoyed it. I have always been fanatical about the human body…and I never stopped studying it.
Do you believe it’s important not to trust the diagnosis?
If you are ill and stay in an environment which is also sick, you will stay sick for a long time!
Yes, the most important thing is not to believe it and not to identify with it. My name is Lidia and not scoliosis or cancer…People tend to identify. They come here and the first thing they say is: “I have multiple sclerosis”. They even form social clubs because they believe they will be better understood. But the only thing they are doing is creating a negative feedback loop and negative vibrations. If you are ill and stay in an environment which is also sick, you will stay sick for a long time! Thus, in this way, no one is healed!
We aren’t aware of how important our beliefs are…
No, we’re not. But the “social matrix” is very powerful. I advise them, epigenetically, to take responsibility for their reality. They need to take charge of the situation and to say and do what genuinely gives them peace. If conventional medicine gives them peace, go ahead. But if not, don’t follow that path, because the key to healing is for people to be at peace.

It must be a difficult decision…
Yes, and often the patients can see it clearly, they understand and are open minded when you show them their blood or you explain them the reality of their situation. But then the family is afraid and they cut off relations with the patient. The families are more problematic than the patients.
You need to convince the family as well…
Well, let’s say that the key thing is for the patient to stop any foolishness, for him or her to take responsibility and not to believe anything. I have patients with ELA (Lou Gehrig disease) who refused to believe it and are still running around now. They experience occasional crises but overcome them. They do things and are on their path to finding peace. For me, healing is peace. If you are peaceful in your heart and mind, it doesn’t matter what you do. This is fundamental.
But people must be determined to grab the bull by its horns…
Yes, but this determination needs to stem from the heart, not from the mind. The mind is very powerful, but you must relinquish fear and start to feel the confidence born in your heart. You must live the experience in your heart and not through your mind. The determination you mention is a “vital” force, the force of life and it acts from the heart. You must say: “I don’t care, I have a premonition and I wish to trust this type of medicine and go down this path of treatment”. Usually patients do not make this kind of decision with their mind because it is constantly doubting, it makes them fearful and feel insecure… “Do you mean? Do you mean?” The mind ceaselessly chatters, comes up with possibilities, creates obstacles… That’s the mind’s job! It chatters to be the star, it’s normal. But we must also love the mind.
For me, healing is peace. If you are peaceful in your heart and mind, it doesn’t matter what you do. This is fundamental
It’s hard to learn to follow the heart
Yes, actually we should know the secret code to reach to the heart and to know that what comes from the heart s always true. And everyone has his or her own secret code.
And how do you help your patients to find this secret code?
Well, for example, the other day I had a visit from a patient with multiple sclerosis. For me she is a heroine because she looks after other people. She told me: “I am very cerebral” - “We’re going to find your path… let’s see… where are you? Here? Come! Place your hand on your heart, go ahead! Quiet the mind, tell it to be quiet and now go to your heart. Do you feel your heart? Are you in your heart? Yes?… Now, ask your heart if you want to do it. What do you feel? Does it make you peaceful or not? Honestly…” And she told me: “Yes, I was joyful and saw some colours…!”. Whatever happens in life, we need to follow the path of the heart.
Whatever happens in life, we need to follow the path of the heart
Is it the same as following one’s intuition?
Yes, intuition is a verbal manifestation of the heart’s vibration. Intuition stems from the frontal lobe, the third eye. Unfortunately, our third eye is shut because we do not wish to see, we are too afraid and our mind mistrusts intuition… But when you connect your heart with your intuition, life becomes absolutely magical. You do not need to worry about anything, anything at all! You live the present moment and that’s it!
Is it like suddenly seeing that you are part of a whole?
And you start seeing that things happen… for example synchronicity. This is striking. When you live confidently, good things happen to you. You do not even need to look for them. It’s like when you are afraid you will be late for a meeting and you are impatient because someone is waiting for you. Then you let go of this idea and suddenly you get a message telling you the person you are meeting will be ten minutes late.
Yes, this does happen…
Yes, it happens because everything is perfect, you just need to trust! Trust is the antithesis of fear. Fear is born in the mind, but the heart knows what it is doing. The heart knows what it needs to do in any situation and with the person within which it exists. It knows what the priorities are. Everything else doesn’t matter. This is the eternal present and you must really trust your present moment and what is happening to you… because it is perfect for you.
It seems like we are talking about two worlds: the material and the immaterial or esoteric…where do we find the balance to be able to live with both?
I believe the problem is that we have created the word “esoteric” for things that actually are normal. We flee from what is truly normal. For instance, when someone tells us: “Don’t talk to me about energy!” - I always think: “But your whole body is energy, you are eating energy, the result of your digestive process is energy and all of this is scientific! Do you want to continue ignoring it? Go ahead!”.
... when you connect your heart with your intuition, life becomes absolutely magical. You do not need to worry about anything, anything at all! You live the present moment and that’s it!
We need to see in order to believe
Yes, but you also don’t see a mite and yet it’s right in front of you. There are parallel realities next to us and depending on whether you increase or decrease your vibration, they will show themselves or not. We are the representation of the cosmos and it is sacred. When people in certain cultures greet each other with “Namaste”, they are thanking you for generously allowing them to participate in your presence, which is perfect, and they thank you for sharing it with them. It is your frequency, the stored result of all your previous existences, including your birth, which is already sacred.
Can we speak of a person’s discernment in such a moment?
It’s when you become aware of the whole thing, that is to say that there is a real connection with everything and either you are listening, that is to say, aware of it all, or you are excluded. You decide, but it is ridiculous to refute it, it’s like affirming that life only exists on Earth. It’s like starting to see possibilities. Illness would be the opportunity to go beyond, because it is a teacher of life. It is the teacher that will open the doors to this discernment for you, to the truth of life.
... when someone tells us: “Don’t talk to me about energy!” - I always think: “But your whole body is energy, you are eating energy, the result of your digestive process is energy
And why do you believe we are born ignorant of all of this? I will die and will have to repeat the process of remembering…
I believe that if we were born knowing everything we would go crazy!
Knowledge of all of our lives?
Of course! My teacher used to say that to get to this moment, with this state of consciousness, we have already lived millions of lives. Which one do you want to remember? We already bear the imprints of all of these millions of lives in our selves, in our beings. This life I am living now is the stored result of all the others. What I am experiencing in this life is what I have come to experiment with and is neither good nor bad.
Our physical body as well?
Yes, our physical bodies are the vibrations of all the experiences of millions of previous lives. It is wonderful! That’s why, when I look at a human being I find her beautiful, always! Yes, because beauty is not only within but outside as well. Wow, look at those ears, those eyes! Look at that! What were they like last time? Creation is unbelievable. On the other hand, everything we humans have created with our minds is ridiculous in comparison.
Wow, in the end we always come back to the mind!
Yes, because the mind wants to have all the information, it wants to be strong and powerful. It needs this because it contains our ego and our weakness. The mind is strong and weak at the same time, because it simply accumulates information, it acts according to this information. But if we free our minds and center ourselves in our hearts, we start to live from the source, from our real identity, because truth is in our hearts. The mind is a storage of possibilities but it is human.
We are more than our minds
Yes! I look at cells every day and I see God! I see the galaxy, I see trillions and trillions of bacteria that are working for you. They give their lives and they are beings with their own consciousness. I also get overwhelmed with feelings when I contemplate my patients’ blood. I tell them: “Look, your galaxy! Isn’t it emotionally moving? It’s life! You are seeing your cosmos of which you are the owner and ruler”. - We seek love and recognition outside of ourselves but actually everything is within us. We just need to listen to these cells, how they are working, how they love us and how they give us life. We must honour this and share this happiness. We don’t need to seek it on the beach or in the mountains…
Illness would be the opportunity to go beyond, because it is a teacher of life. It is the teacher that will open the doors to this discernment for you, to the truth of life
Do you always approach it in this manner with your patients?
I simply listen to people’s souls and connect with the heart. In this way I feel their truth. Not everyone generates this type of conversation in the beginning.
What happens when you meet a sceptic?
Red blood cells, white blood cells, membranes, ions…you are living with stress. You have lost all your ions due to excessive acidity, you don’t fit in, you don’t eat, you suffer from hypoxia… Is this what you want to hear? I am here to respect who you are, I am no one.
I look at cells every day and I see God! I see the galaxy, I see trillions and trillions of bacteria that are working for you. They give their lives and they are beings with their own consciousness
Everyone is free to awaken when they wish…
Absolutely, but what is the truth? Are we all awake? What have we awakened from? To other beliefs, have we awakened to conscience? What is conscience? Those that usually consider themselves conscious are really expressing their being. But must we express it or must we be it? It is time to activate being in order for it to continue in this world.
We have a lot of information but we must take action
Yes, a lot of information. My teacher used to tell me: “Don’t read because you will infect your mind with other people’s thoughts and vibrations, you will get lost, you won’t be able to recognise yourself, you won’t know who you are”. And I had spent my life buying books!
In the end, with full consciousness, you receive the information you need
Yes, by trusting.
How does one avoid falling back into worrying and daily problems?
By practicing constantly. By simply living your life. I always say my boss is the universe and it puts me where I need to be and makes me do what I need to do. What needs to be done now? This? Very well then! If I question it or resist it will harm me, so I accept it and am grateful.
You manage to connect by fasting, right?
For me, fasting is a gift because you can be more useful in other dimensions and see that we are much larger. Fasting is a kind of innate tool we humans have. We all have this capacity but few of us use it.
It has been lost in the more industrialised world…
Yes, we have lost our roots, our customs, our habits, the essence, the natural innate wisdom which we had slowly learned over time. My grandmother observed lent. Actually, this was a real medicine, intuitive. It proved its validity by just doing it. In the past, people practiced different things, they did not need to believe in anything. They simply experimented. Nowadays you tell somenone: "Fast" and they reply: "Oh, I don't believe in this". When we were troglodytes, our mind was 10% subconscious and 90% conscious. The conscious part was generated by the work we did every day. That is to say we experienced our own unconsciousness or rather preconsciousness. Now, every time we lose more consciousness and we are more unconscious because we have read about things, they have been explained to us, we have seen them, but we have not experienced them. All of this boils down to a storage room of data which is practically all a lie. In order to know if something is true, we must experience things for ourselves. In the remote past, 90% of our experiences were true because they were based on our own actions and nowadays it’s just the opposite. Just imagine, we live unconsciously! And the worst thing is that children are also not allowed to experiment.
I simply listen to people’s souls and connect with the heart. In this way I feel their truth
Once they have tried fasting, do patients follow more responsible diets afterwards?
Very much so! And I am moved when they tell me that fasting has helped them to quit drinking Coca-cola, eat bread etc. and that they now eat whole grain or organic food. And, as a consequence, the entire family! Fasting is a sort of tool to make people aware of the truth of being a human being. Many people start to open up as a result of fasting. I see them as silkworms that turn into butterflies. It’s very moving! Fasting is an adjustment, an initiation… I don’t know anyone whose life hasn’t been changed by it.
Fasting is a kind of innate tool we humans have. We all have this capacity but few of us use it
Some people talk about sacralising food, the soil, the water the soil receives, the earth, the hands that plant the seeds, the hands of those harvesting food…
Yes. From the beginning of time, we sought our own food and this was what was most important because our survival depended on it. We must honour and respect life.
Potser el dejuni ens fa més agraïts i humils?
Yes, because we stop the mind, we stop the “I want it”, the “I haven’t tried it” or the “all I like is this”… Every day we must work for our body because we have many workers in here who need tools and proper care. We can delight the mind on the weekend with a sort of science fiction cuisine, tastes and all sorts of textures. But not on other days.
It’s a very visual cuisine, isn’t it?
Absolutely. It’s everything the mind can conceive. But the mind must also be nourished and it is therefore important to know when and how. The mind is like an animal which needs to be trained, but you are the one in charge.
What is the first therapy you apply to a patient?
An HLBO test. It’s a blood test I do during the first visit. I draw a drop and analyse it in its dry and liquid forms. In a live drop of blood you can see all the cells, the red blood cells, the white ones as well as the fungus and parasites… these are things conventional medicine denies, but I see them and they are there. They mutate and get stronger. Evolution has overtaken us and this is why there is so much illness, because the parasites and fungi have become stronger.
And you recommend them to fast?
Yes, they need a reset. I especially tell them when I feel it. But I don’t always start with suggesting fasting. Not everyone wants to do it. Therefore I apply other therapies: ortho-molecular medicine, biomagnetism, Chinese medicine, acupuncture… for me, their bodies are like vehicles, I tell them to get out and to let me heal it. It’s a whole and I work with the tools available to me. One of the most advanced therapies we apply relates to the colon. We treat it as if it were a brain and patients get better very quickly. We even get patients from other countries. The changes they experience are incredible. The thing is that we have no idea what the body is, no idea! Very little has been written about it.
Evolution has overtaken us and this is why there is so much illness, because the parasites and fungi have become stronger
And we must keep an open mind because there will be more changes…
Absolutely. I believe the real medicine, that of the future, will be intuitive medicine. I feel like laughing! We will need to feel the patients.
Yes, but professionally, no?
One needs to trust. But I assure you, it’s the medicine of the future, as well as the energy of the future. I work with waves, with chromotherapy…we vibrate, it’s pure physics. It cannot be denied.
I believe the real medicine, that of the future, will be intuitive medicine. I feel like laughing! We will need to feel the patients
Getting back to fasting, you have created some vegetable broths, right?
Yes, they are concoctions containing more than 62% of vegetables. The content for one liter does not fit in a plate. Whilst the vegetables are being cooked we sing mantras, apply chromotherapy, the water is rendered dynamic and mineralized.
These broths contain a lot of consciousness, they are medicine. These are broths that are meant for urban fasting, for city dwellers. In the countryside, people do not need so much help. In the cities, some people need a lot of help, they are lost, infected… I, for example, do water fasts for 10, 12 or 15 days… whilst I am working and everything else. But, I have been doing them for many years. With the broths, people can keep doing sports, go up and down, but with important benefits. For me it’s crucial that fasting be done with water, but the broths have a detox effect. If your food is detox every day you are permanently detoxing.
Thank you very much Lidia for this great talk. One last question: What should we chocolate lovers do?
Do you know what? If you take care of yourself, your body, which is a machine, can manage anything. What harm can a small piece of chocolate do? Repression is much worse, it damages the liver. You are the one who changes food. Enjoy the moment when you are eating chocolate and your mind and consciousness will generate incredible joy!
I shall do so at every meal!
Yes!... Chewing, repolarizing your own food, this already happens. In other words, you eat something dead and by chewing it you transform it into life! If you eat chocolate mindfully and enjoy it…wow! It’s incredible. Therefore free yourself from your mind, be conscious and present and get rid of any judgement.
I am relieved. Thank you very much!
