Top Reasons to Fast / Detox

The highly refined foods that you eat every day, including sugar and white flour, make you susceptible to intestinal problems, and possible diseases. Maintaining a properly functioning, healthy digestive tract is vital to your overall health. That's why fasting is nature's answer, helping to detoxify, cleanse and refresh your body and gently enhancing your body's own natural internal cleansing process.

Top Reasons to Fast

Why Fast?
Fasting is one of the most natural, powerful therapies known to humankind and is used to remove accumulated toxins from the body (therefore “Detox”). Periods of abstinence from solid food - a ritual since ancient times - allow the body to 'cleanse and purify', to remove multitudes of toxins, excess fat, parasites, and the like caused by years of processed or fast food, cigarettes, prescription drugs and alcohol. Add to that work and family-related stress, indigestion, illnesses, constipation and sedentary lifestyles, and you have a recipe for an unhealthy colon. Furthermore, the cells, tissues and organs of your body are given a well-deserved and much needed chance to slow down, rest, and heal.
 
Unfortunately today, most diets are heavily loaded with chemical additives, flavorings, coloring agents, toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other toxic chemicals which overburden our bodies. As this toxic overload accumulates decade after decade, it eventually interferes with normal functioning and our body's elimination becomes impaired. 
 
“The organs of the body can accumulate toxins for years and years without rebelling ... eventually the organs can no longer cope. It is then we experience 'disease'. It is the point of overload, and when it has reached this point it is often a chronic state of ill health, or even an acute condition that we will suffer. So often we ignore the warning signs along the way.”
Dr. Norman Walker 
 
During fasting, large amounts of these accumulated metabolic wastes and poisons are gradually eliminated through the greatly enhanced cleansing ability of all the organs of elimination – liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. 
 
With the addition of Colon Cleansing and self-administered Colemas (a cleansing regime whereby the colon is flushed out with natural solutions, in itself a potent detoxification tool) our Detox Programs offer a safe and transformative, therapeutic process moving you towards much greater states of Health and Well-Being.
 
The Secret to Staying Healthy
Fasting/Detox is a synergy between science and nature, helping to regulate and purify your digestive tract. This easy-to-use cleansing system gently and safely expels dangerous toxins and impacted build-up from your intestinal walls.
Toxic waste build-up in the colon may result in many different types of health problems. Here are some of them:
  • Skin problems 
  • Bad breath/body odor
  • Bloating/gas/ indigestion
  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Digestive problems
  • Fatigue 
  • Low energy 
  • Headaches
  • Weakened immune system
  • Parasites (worms)
  • Weight problems
  • Spastic colon 
  • Abdominal pain 
  • Lower back pain 
  • Cancer 
These are just some of the issues caused by the combination of processed foods, low fiber diets and poor evacuation of waste. When your colon is not functioning regularly or properly, food may stay in the colon for days, weeks, even months, poisoning your entire system. It is especially suited for you if you suffer from:
  • Arthritis 
  • Allergies/Hay fever 
  • Bloating 
  • Bad breath 
  • Body odor 
  • Constipation and/or Diarrhea 
  • Digestive disorders 
  • Excess weight 
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome / Crohn's Disease 
  • Lack of energy 
  • Poor complexion 
  • Migraines 
And it also is recommended to do if you:
  • eat cooked or processed foods 
  • consume meat and dairy products 
  • have a high fat or high sugar diet 
  • smoke cigarettes 
  • regularly drink alcohol 
  • have taken antibiotics 
  • live a stressful lifestyle
Lifestyle Changes
REMEMBER: YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
 
Detoxification is the process of clearing toxins from the body or neutralizing or transforming them, and clearing excess mucus and congestion. Many of these toxins come from your diet, drug use, and environmental exposure. Internally, fats - especially oxidized fats and cholesterol - free radicals and other irritating molecules act as toxins. Poor digestion, colon sluggishness, reduced liver function, and poor elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract, and skin all add to increased toxicity.
 
Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes which reduce intake of toxins and improve elimination. Avoidance of chemicals, from food or other sources, refined foods, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and many drugs helps minimize the toxic load. When detoxifying your colon, it is also important to incorporate Probiotics in your diet to replenish your intestinal flora.
 
Those lifestyle changes are a direct result of choices you make in your life.
 
The toxic Bowel
One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience today is constipation. A constipated system is one in which the transition time of toxic wastes is slow. The longer the 'transit time', the longer the toxic waste matter sits in our bowel, which allows it to putrefy, ferment and possibly be reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste matter putrefying in your colon at all times. 
 
Disease usually begins with a toxic bowel. Those having fewer bowel movements are harboring a potentially fertile breeding ground for a great number of diseases. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movements over an extended period of time may be very hazardous to your health.
 
Mucoid Plaque
A proper Colon Cleansing Program removes the Mucoid Plaque from the Colon. Even a thin layer of mucoid plaque weakens the body. Nature intended mucoid plaque to be sloughed off. But due to stress and diet, most people have many hardened layers of mucoid plaque in the intestinal tract. The healthy colon weighs about 4 pounds. Most colons are choked with many more pounds of impacted mucoid plaque. A proper colon cleanse and detoxification program prepares your body for optimal health by gradually removing the mucoid plaque.
 
Begin transitioning to a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables with very few cooked or processed foods. Regular and easy elimination will be the rule, toxins will not build up further and foods will be fully digested and utilized. It will have been a process of many years to create such conditions. It will also be a process, although faster, to detoxify and get your body pure and back to its highest possible state of health. Optimum nutrition and proper colon health allow rejuvenation and peak vitality.
 
Herbal Colon Cleansing
Herbal colon cleansing using psyllium, internal cleansing herbs and other natural colon cleansing products, is an essential part of a good detoxification program.
 
Colon Cleanse – The beneficial effects of Detoxification
Detoxification has a beneficial effect on most chronic illnesses because it has an impact on almost all systems of the body: cardiovascular, nervous, immune, respiratory, reproductive, gastrointestinal, urinary, skin, musculoskeletal and endocrine. 
  • Improve your energy levels
  • Increase metabolism
  • Enhance weight loss
  • Restore your digestive system
  • Cleanse your liver and colon
  • Balance your hormones
  • Boost your immunity 
“The best detox diet of all is to eat nothing, in other words to fast for a period of three to seven days. Fasting is nature's ultimate cure for all ailments, and nothing cleanses the body more swiftly. When practiced in conjunction with colonic hydrotherapy, the results are even faster, more effective, and often quite dramatic.”
Daniel Reid, author of 'The Tao of Detox'
 
Resting the Digestive System
For perhaps the first time in your entire life, fasting affords a physiological rest to the digestive, assimilative and protective organs of your body. Fresh juices and herbal detox drinks require little digestion, and are quickly assimilated from the upper digestive tract. Therefore, most of the 10% of bodily energy normally involved in your mastication, assimilation, and elimination is freed up. This is another reason you will feel more, not less, energy throughout properly-done fasting.
 
Additionally, these herbal detox drinks and juices all supply excellent energy, minerals, vitamins, live enzymes, and other nutrients necessary to enhance health during the fast. By providing much of the body's daily caloric needs with easily-digested juices and herbal supplements the release of toxins from the fat cells is much more gentle and gradual.
