Fasting - willfully abstaining from food. For more than five thousand years, fasting has been used as a healthy method of weight loss. It is also a powerful tool for cleaning, flushing, detoxifying , and maintaining the body, and healing illnesses, both minor and major. When we don't eat, all of our body's energy goes toward cleaning house.
Fasts can last anywhere from twenty-four hours to ten day or more. It's all up to you how light, clean, and healthy you want to get. The longer the better, but even just one day one time a month is beneficial.
After two to three days of fasting, the body goes into autolysis, and actually starts digesting it's own cells. With its wisdom, the body selectively decomposes the tissues and cells that are diseased, damaged, old, dead or in excess (fat). The body is literally digesting and expelling poisons, toxins, and bad cells that were already there - and it feels crappy. But this is actually a good thing because the body is finally able to tackle some problems that were lurking within,
During a fast, digestive enzymes are relieved from their usual role, and instead act to cleanse and rejuvenate the body. This rejuvenation process includes the production of new cells. And when more cells are being produced than are dying, the aging process is actually being reversed. This phenomenon occurs during juice or water fasts. Eventually, you'll notice sharpers sense of smell, sight, sound, and taste. You'll feel lighter physically, mentally, and emotionally.
