Over time, toxins build up in the body as a result of the pollutants in the air we breathe, the chemicals in the food and water we consume, and other means. Fasting is an effective and safe method of helping the body detoxify itself. Fasting gives the body the rest it needs to recover. By fasting, you give all your organs a rest.
During a fast:
* The natural process of toxin excretion continues while the influx of new toxins is reduced.
This results in a reduction of total body toxicity.
* The energy used for digestion is directed to immune function, cell growth, and eliminatory processes.
* Immune system's workload is greatly reduced, and the digestive tract is spared.
* Fat stored chemicals, such as pesticides and drugs, are released.
Due to theses effects of fasting, a fast can help heal you with greater speed, cleanse your liver, kidneys, colon and purify the blood. Depending on the length of the fast, it accomplishes different things. A two-day fast helps rid it of toxins and cleans the blood.
Certain precautions should be taken during fasts. First, do not fast on water alone. An all water fast releases toxins too quickly. Second, whenever you fast, do so under the supervision of a qualified health-care professional. If you have diabetes, hypoglycemia, or another chronic health problem, even short fasts should be supervised.
A final word of advice: It took years to wear your body down, and it will take time to build it back up. But believe that it can be done.
To prepare for the fast, eat only raw vegetables and fruits for 48 hours. This will make the fast less of a shock to your body.
While on the fast, consume at least 8 glasses of distilled water a day, plus pure juices and up to two cups of herbal tea. Do not drink orange or tomato juice, and avoid all juices made with sweeteners or other additives.
The best juice to use during your fast is fresh lemon juice. Add the juice of one lemon to a glass of water. Fresh apple, beet, cabbage, carrot, celery and grapes juices are also good, as are "green Drinks" which are made from green leafy vegetables
Eating cooked foods immediately can ruin the desired effects of the fast. Because both the size of the stomach and the amount of secreted enzymes may decrease during fasting, the first meals should be frequent and small.
Take 2 capsules of garlic twice a day.
