All about fasting detox
Fasting detox: Fasting has long existed in history. In Buddhism, monks have meals before 11.00 a.m., and refrain from foods in the night. For some Buddhist sects, they have one meal per day. In Islam, Muslims fast during Ramadan from sunrise till sunset. During the Chinese vegetarian festival, they refrain from eating meat.
The natural living of humans and animals are the same. Most wild animals do not regularly have meals. They fast when they are sick. In humans, sickness affects our appetite as well, since the body naturally needs some rest to heal itself.
Normally, we have 3 meals a day. The body has a natural rest or fasting when we sleep. We break fasting with breakfast. However, due to the current lifestyles, most of us have late meals, go to bed late at night, but wake up early. The body has less time to recharge and self-repair. As a result, degeneration occurs more easily as our illnesses are closely associated with our immunity and gastrointestinal tract.
Fasting allows the gastrointestinal tract and metabolism to rest and naturally heal themselves. As the body uses energy in digestion and toxin elimination, the body rests and heals itself during fasting.
In medicine, fasting is a detox method. Research has found that fasting mice live longer. Fasting also stimulates cell division without mutation or cancer cell formation. Fasting stimulates bone marrow Mesenchymal stromal cell formation, and helps lysosome to remove toxins from cells. Fasting detox is another fasting method which anyone can do in accordance with the doctor’s advice to slow down the aging process and improve the metabolism.
