Fasting is the oldest, most natural, and most powerful way of healing known to Man. There is no better way to cleanse the body of toxins, lose unnecessary weight, strengthen the immune system, and improve the overall functioning of the body, mind and spirit. We only need to look to nature to observe that when animals are ill or have consumed something that is toxic to their system, they immediately fast because they know it is the best way to eliminate what does not belong in the body. As humans, sometimes we get a little far removed from our intuition, and the buildup of toxins over time results in chronic ailments and then eventually, diseases. Not only do we accumulate toxins from the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicines we take, many of us overlook stress and a huge contributor to the toxic overload in the body. Stress is all around us and is something that over time we come to accept, however in reality, it can be seen as the number one cause of an unbalanced system. It can come from a job, a relationship, children, our environment, or any area of our life that is out of sync with our true vibration and purpose. It is also the hardest thing to detox from because often times it’s not as simple as choosing an apple over a cookie.
