Most people seem to overlook the fact that fasting periodically can help expel the buildup of toxins in the body. In most cases, hunger or a voracious appetite for food takes a front seat in the arena of life. Fasting is, therefore, relegated to the far end of the arena, even though it is considered to be a “must” that contributes to the expulsion of chemicals in the food and water that we consume as well as pollutants in the air that we breathe. Toxins that enter the bloodstream causes the body to experience a “down” cycle that can trigger headaches, diarrhea or depression, as well as a host of other reactions, such as loss of sleep and symptoms of certain illnesses.
Fasting is an accessible avenue to choose and the only feasible way to allow the body to detoxify itself. It can also allow the body the rest that is required in order to recover. Studies have shown that certain illnesses respond favorably to fasting, thus speeding the process of healing by way of giving your organs a rest, while also helping to slow down the cycle of aging.
When toxins are expelled from the body, the progress of their accumulation is retarded. At the same time, the workload of the immune system is appreciably reduced, leading to an increase in oxygenation and the release of chemicals, such as pesticides is accelerated.
Doctors have concluded in their assessment that fasting can help you heal faster than expected, for the reason that it helps cleanse the liver, kidneys and colon, purify the blood, help you lose excess weight, clear the eyes and tongue, as well as cleanse the breath. It is highly recommended that we should fast at least three days a month
