Fasting is a planned activity that consciously discontinues food intake for health or religious reasons. Fasting and starvation are totally separate and very different. Below I will help you to understand what fasting is.
Regular fasting is one of the few most effective methods of cleansing the body. Every year our body ages and collects more and more sediments and impurities. They mainly accumulate in the bones, joints, muscles, circulatory system and lungs. Not only does our weight increase, but also our energy level lowers.
In my opinion, the best and most natural method of detoxifying the body are short and regular periods of fasting. During fast our body “eats” what bothers it the most: tumour, cysts, cancer cells and toxins to name but a few. We only need 24-36 hours for our body to switch to internal – endogenous feeding.
Please note that when our beloved pets do not feel well, they automatically go to fasting! This is the most natural and healthy reaction for all beings. In the first phase, there is cleansing of what is lingering and disturbing, and only after some time, when the body is ready to nourish we get a signal of hunger. The same happens with our body. During the flu, children like to abstain from eating for ok average 2 to 3 days!
We distinguish between short-term fasting (1-2 days), long-term fasting (3-14) and intermittent fasting (refraining from eating for a certain period of time during the day, e.g. 18 hours). Fasts lasting longer than 48 hours should be characterized by an appropriate process of ending and starting the food intake. In general, it is assumed that the exit from the fast should last as long as you stayed in it. So what this means is that if you fast for 3 days then you should spend 3 days gradually bringing yourself back up to your normal daily food intake.
