Have you ever wondered why that when we get sick, the first thing that happens is we lose our appetite? That is the natural way of our body trying to fast and detox, which means the body stops the digestive process to keep all the energy, in order to purify, heal, repair and rejuvenate.
Fasting is the way to let your body purify tissues, rejuvenate and heal.
The word “fasting” comes from the gothic word Fastan, meaning abstain (onto) observe. Religion suggests fasting as a way of spiritual enlightenment, clarity of thought and improved intuition.
The therapeutic purpose of fasting is to give the body’s organs an opportunity to rest from their daily obligations of digestion, in order to let them purify the tissues, rejuvenate and heal.
The father of medicine, the Greek physician Hippocrates (ca. 460 to 375 B.C.) stated that food is medicine; however, only through fasting are “miraculous healing powers” awoken.
Today, physicians from all over the world have been advocating the powerful effects and benefits of fasting and it is recognized as integrative medicine showing positive results for the prevention of ailments and treatment of chronic diseases.
Recognise the symptoms of toxins of your body.
Normally our body has a natural ability to deal with debris substances, however, nowadays we are being exposed to high levels of harmful substances and sometimes, because of low immunity and bad functions of the body´s system, we start to keep toxins instead of releasing them. Imagine how many years of accumulation our body has been obliged to deal with.
Think of your body as a powerful machine, like a car. At regular intervals you send your car to the garage for a check-up. Sometimes the car looks very clean and shiny from the outside, but inside the oil is very dirty and thick, the filters are completely polluted and at any time the car could stop. Our body is exactly the same. We need to clean our filters and recharge our batteries in order to thrive on the road of life.
When the body is overwhelmed by toxins we may start to experience some kind of symptoms: irritability, stressed, difficult to concentrate, tired, migraines, headache, gas, bloated, constipation, stomach pain, insomnia, seasonal or food allergies, varicose veins, psoriasis, acne, unpleasant body odour and lack of libido.
Cleansing is a very effective way to prevent and heal diseases.
By fasting or consuming a raw food diet, one eases the load that is placed on the digestive system giving the body a rest from its daily tasks, allowing our main detox organ, the liver, to work in a much more efficient way. Once the detoxification starts, we need colon cleansing by way of colema to help to get the toxins out of our body as soon as possible to avoid them re-entering into our bloodstream.
The longer the fast or detox program, the deeper the purification will be. A detox or fast is also an opportunity to have a mental rest, to open a gateway to greater mental clarity. By removing external stimuli during a detox, one can tune into the feelings, emotions and thoughts that come up from within.
