Fasting means omitting solid or blended food and consuming only liquids. While fasting, the body does not have to deal with digestion or the waste generated by solid foods. Instead, the body’s energy can concentrate on getting rid of toxins. Known benefits of fasting include, though are not limited to: rest for internal organs, improved digestion and circulation, greater mental and spiritual clarity, increased energy, elimination of drug cravings and food addictions, improved sleep and weight loss. If you are new to fasting, seek guidance from a licensed alternative health care practitioner.
