Hey everyone! I am so excited to share this video with all of you. Many of you know I LOVE to juice fast and water fast. I’ve done ten day water fasts in the past that have helped me let go of bad habits and addictions.
In the video below I share with all of you what I prefer to drink on my water fast:)
Please note I do NOT promote fasting for extended periods and you should ALWAYS consult your physician prior to doing ANY cleanse:)
1. Cleansing effects
Cleansing is a natural body process of eliminating toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, and skin. During water fasting all the toxins in our body are expelled, creating an ideal environment for healing. This is responsible for a healthier skin, teeth and gums, better functioning of organs and even bones healing from injuries in half the time!
2. A more efficient Immune System
During a water fasting, the energy is diverted away from the digestion of food and instead moves to healing the glandular system and organs of the body! In turn our immune system is able to be restored!
3. Anti aging and extended life expectancy
During a water fast the damaged tissues and many illnesses are repaired thus leaving the body in the optimal state for growth.
4. A sense of peace! A time to relax and go within!
it is vitally important that you rest during a water fast. Undergoing exersize will only create stress on the body and will be counter productive. In order to heal one must se this time as a period of rest and rejuvenation! One on one time with God!
5. Improvement of the skeletal & muscular systems
Fasting induces anti-inflammatory actions on both the skeletal and muscular system. This in turn assists the bodies natural repair process from almost all pains, aches, arthritis in muscles and joints.
6. Weight Loss
Although this should not be the main concern when one undergoes a water fast, it has been proven to be one of the best remedies for obesity.
7. Addictive behaviors especially surrounding food vanish!
For most people not eating for a day is not a big challenge. This being said a planned fast will bring up more “stuff” from childhood than anything else! In order to “let go” we must remember that it is not aha we add into the diet in the way of supplements and food. It is what we leave out that clears the body of degree and clears the mind of confusion! This makes the difference!
8. More energy!
Think I’m lying? I’m not! As the great Gil Jacobs said to me years ago “true health comes from removing the obstructions in the body, not from food”!
Remember…the most taxing activity of the body, in terms of energy expenditure is the digestive process. During the water fasting the same energy is directed towards other activities leaving the body with more energy.
9. An incredible sense of being MORE in tune with ones body
In a fasting state, all the sensations of the body are increased! This in turn creates a deeper sense of awareness of the wonderful God creation of our body. I call this an ORGASMIC connection with sours and self!
10. Increased Spiritual Connection
As one fasts we are humbled. Everything is stripped away from us…even our food. Once we rid of the physical toxins our strongholds are brought to the surface. Our bodily toxins flush out and the emotional wounds come up and out.
To better understand this you must understand that our emotional wounds are stored in the energetic system of the body. In other words “our issues live in our tissues”! Cleansing trough fasting creates a new space for emotional healing and for positive emotions to come in. By quieting the mind we are creating the emotional and mental environment for a deep spiritual connection.
