The Benefits Of Fasting

Aug 17, 2007
Fasting is an effective and safe way to get rid of toxins which build up over time in the body. Fasting can be helpful in any illness by giving the body the rest it needs to recover. The body periodically try to rid it self from toxins and releases them from the tissues. As a result you may suffer from headaches, diarrhea, or depression. With fasting you can help your body to detoxify itself and move thru this cycle with grater speed and fewer symptoms. The energy needed to digest food can be used to support immune function, cell growth, and eliminatory process. By fasting regularly you give all of your organs a rest and this way reverse the aging process and live a longer and healthier life.

Fasting can help you to heal with grate speed, cleanse your liver, kidneys, and colon, purify your blood, help you to loose excess weight and puffiness, flush out toxins, clear the eyes and tongue, and cleanse the breath. Garlic will help to get rid of many types of parasites.

You can accomplish different things depending on the length of the fasting. If you just want to get rid of majority of toxins and to cleanse the blood, a three day-fast will do that. To rebuild the immune system and to start the healing process you would have a five-day fast. By having a ten-day fast many health problems can be taken care of before they arise.

Before fasting eat only raw vegetables and fruits for two days. This way fasting will no be such a shock to your system. During the fast drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of distilled water every day. Have pure juices and up to two cups of herbal tea a day. All juices must be diluted with water. Add 1 part water and 3 parts juice. Orange and tomato juices are not allowed when fasting. Green drinks made of leafy vegetables are great detoxifiers.

If you must eat something when fasting, eat a piece of watermelon by itself with no additional foods. Or try some fresh applesauce made in blender. Don't give up if you have some bad moments. To promote cleansing of the colon take fiber supplements before and after fasting daily, but not during the fast. Wheat bran may irritate the colon. Oat bran, psyllium seed husks and ground flaxseed are excellent sources of fiber.

As toxins are released from your body you may experience symptoms like headache, fatigue, dizziness, irritability, anxiety, bad body odor, diarrhea, dark urine, body aches, insomnia, skin eruptions, scaly skin, nausea, coughing, foul smelling stools, visual and hearing problems, sinus and bronchial mucus discharge and then some. Fasting is rather personal experience what comes to symptoms of detoxifying process. These symptoms are not serious, and will not last long. Daily lemon juice enema should bring some relief. Colonics during a fast will usually keep you almost symptom free. Find a licensed professional to go to.

After the fast you should again follow the two-day diet of raw vegetables and fruits. Try to find pure organic produce. Don't ruin the effects of the fasting by eating cooked food immediately afterward. Eat frequently and small meals for few days, because the size of the stomach and the mount of the secreted digestive juices may have decreased during fasting.

All fasts should be supervised by a doctor. Kevin Trudeau has a Natural Cures website where you can find doctors who are familiar with alternative healthcare. It has taken YEARS for your body to wear down, and it will take time to build it back to its peak condition again. It may take some effort, but it can be done
