Prince Albert Health Clinic - Fasting has been used for health purposes for many thousands of years, according to historical records. Greek philosophers Hippocrates, Plato and Socrates have all suggested fasting for health recovery. Mahatma Gandhi completed a 21 day fast to be able to promote respect and compassion between individuals with other religions. According to the Bible, Jesus and Moses fasted for 40 days to attain spiritual rejuvenation. Fasting has been influenced by spiritual purpose and intuition for much of human history. Currently, our knowledge of human physiology confirms the powerful healing effects of fasting.
Many health conditions could benefit from the fasting method. Some of the most common issues can be asthma, chronic headaches, allergies, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, benign tumors, degenerative arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, adult onset diabetes, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, systemic lupus erythematosus and uterine fibroids. Fasting is powerful therapeutic processes that could help people recover from mild to serious health conditions.
The method of fasting provides the body extended rest so that the body processes can devote itself to self healing mechanisms. This method allows both accumulated toxins and other waste products to cleanse from the cells. It enables the body the chance to devote its self healing mechanisms to strengthening damaged organs and repairing itself.
All through fasting, the digestive tract can rest and can work so as to strengthen its mucosal lining. The mucosal lining when healthy is important to prevent leakage of undigested proteins in the bloodstream. This allows the mucosal lining to offer protection against autoimmune conditions. When the body maintains a healthy digestive tract, it also helps to protect the inner organs and blood against a variety of environmental and metabolic toxins.
A fast would allow you to undergo some of the following advantages: elimination of stored toxins, a decrease or elimination of headaches, stabilization of bowel movements, a decrease in anxiety and tension, stabilization of blood pressure, a clean and healthy cardiovascular system, more efficient and stronger digestion, dramatic reduction or complete elimination of aches and pains in muscles and joints, healthier skin, better sleep quality, much more energy, healthier gums and teeth. Autoimmune disorders and several chronic degenerative health issues would see improvements.
The healing and detoxifying processes that occur through a fast are even active when someone is consuming food. It is a helpful method for individuals whose problems are not improving as fast as they would like, or perhaps for individuals who have health conditions which need a concentrated period of healing to happen. Amongst the more important things about a fast is how an individual lives after the fast has been attained. Fasting could provide a rejuvenated foundation upon which you could maintain and build a strong and well-conditioned healthy body by always making healthy food and lifestyle alternatives.
