A Mechanism Inherited from the Evolution of the Living

 

Fasting has been a part of human history for thousands of years, practiced by various religions and cultures for spiritual, physical, and political reasons. But what exactly is fasting, and why are more and more people interested in trying it?

In its simplest definition, fasting means abstaining from food and sometimes liquids for a few hours, a day, or even longer periods. And according to Tyler Tolman, “fasting has been practiced as a ritual and protocol for preventing and healing diseases for thousands of years.” It allows the body to purify itself of accumulated toxins and pollutants, leading to both short-term and long-term health benefits.

Many advocates of fasting practice it several times a year, as it helps to rewire the immune system and taste buds while paving the way for better nutrient absorption. This is because giving the body a break from constantly processing food allows the digestive system to heal and reset, preventing the development of common ailments and chronic diseases.

The concept of fasting is still controversial in some countries, but it’s gaining popularity in places like Germany, Switzerland, and Russia. Fasting offers a unique opportunity for people to pause in their busy lives and undergo a life-changing shift in perspective. It’s a gift that we can give ourselves.

The benefits of fasting vary for everyone but include regeneration of the body by eliminating toxins, healing energy, a stronger immune system, and overall better well-being and health. Fasting requires some preparation, as it’s challenging for the body to suddenly stop all food without decreasing the amount and category of food over a few days prior to starting the fast.

When fasting, the body draws on its reserves and prevails through its own cells, using excess fat cells to protect muscle mass. This helps to eliminate toxins and undesirable substances in the body, promoting a more solid immune system and overall health.

It’s natural to wonder how the body can go without food for days. But fasting comes in different forms, such as with or without water (liquids). Determination and motivation are required, along with a daily check-up, especially when fasting for more than a few days. Everyone is different, and reactions to fasting vary depending on physiological and psychological states. The body still asks for nutrition for the first 2-3 days, and hunger pangs may be felt during this time. But after the third day, hunger sensations disappear, and some people report feeling tired while others report feeling energetic. Fasting isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay.

If you’re looking for a way to reset your health system, especially your digestive system, fasting can be one of the fastest ways to achieve this. Get all the necessary information and feel supported in your fasting journey. Remember that fasting should always be practiced under professional help and support, or by yourself at home with proper research and preparation.
