Fasting is the worlds most ancient healing mechanism. It triggers a wondrous cleaning process that reaches right down to every cell and tissue in the body. Fasting is one of the best cures for the imbalances and diseases that occur due to our busy modern day lifestyles and diets. A detox is an effective way to deal with illnesses that conventional medicine cannot cure.
Fasting and detoxing is also an excellent preventative method, as most diseases start in our digestive tract and organs. Residues coming from the standard Western diet (meat and dairy, fast food, refined sugars and added salt), alcohol, chemicals and improper breakdown of cooked food are spread through the body and act as blockages. Illnesses are caused by those obstructions.
One of the most important benefits of fasting on this program is that it thoroughly cleans and detoxifies the bloodstream. This leads to an elimination of toxins and waste materials from the whole body. Yoga and massages will also speed up the process of detoxification by stimulating the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid.
