Fasting for Healing

Historical records tell us that fasting has been used to restore health for thousands of years. Hippocrates, Socrates and Plato recommended fasting to restore health.

The Bible tells us that Moses and Jesus fasted for 40 days for spiritual renewal. Mahatma Gandhi fasted for 21 days to promote respect and compassion among people of different religions.

For most of human history, fasting has been guided by spiritual idyll. Today, after thousands of scientific studies and the development of technology, human physiology confirms the powerful healing effect of fasting.

Fasting for healing is a powerful therapeutic process, which can help people recover from mild to severe health problems.

Some of the most common are high blood pressure, asthma, allergies, chronic headaches, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease), irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, eczema, acne, uterine fibroids - benign tumors and systemic lupus erythematosus.

Fasting and Detox

Fasting for healing provides a period of concentrated physiological rest, during which the body can develop self-healing mechanisms to repair and strengthen damaged organs.

The fasting process also allows the body to cleanse accumulated toxins and waste products.

Fasting gives the digestive tract time to rest completely and to strengthen its mucous membrane.

A healthy intestinal mucosa is needed to prevent the leakage of incompletely absorbed proteins into the blood, which offers protection against autoimmune diseases. A healthy digestive tract helps protect the blood and internal organs from various harmful substances in the environment and metabolic toxins.

Proven benefits of healing fasting

Through fasting for healing you can ensure:

• More energy;

It is important to understand that the detoxifying and healing processes that occur during fasting are also active when a person consumes food.

Fasting can be good for people, whose condition is not improving as quickly as they would like, or for people who have health problems who need a concentrated period of treatment.

Fasting can provide a clean and renewed foundation on which you can build and maintain a strong and fit body by consistently eating healthy food and following a healthy lifestyle.

If you can't fast, then regularly cook something tasty and lean like:

- lean stews;

- lean rice;

- lean sweets.

Lean eating facilitates the digestive tract and ultimately leads to better tone and appearance.
