Physical Effects of Fasting

  • Fasting frees up energy so healing can begin
    • There’s nothing wrong with enjoying our food, but excess food on a continuous basis does create a burden for the body. During fasting, we rest our system from the constant food. Digesting, assimilating, and metabolizing, these activities require a great deal of energy. It is estimated that 65% of the body’s energy must be directed to the digestive organs after a heavy meal.
  • Losing Weight
    • Using fasting to lose weight can create many opportunities to gain insights into your patterns with food and for making changes to your habits and lifestyle much easier to accomplish. Fasting gives you a new perspective on your relationship to food; why and when you eat what you do, what your mental and emotional attachments are, and offer an opportunity for you to heal these issues.
  • Fasting can give you more energy
    • When you’ve progressed past the stage of dealing with detox symptoms, a fast will have you feeling lighter, more energetic, more enthusiastic, and requiring less sleep.

Mental and Emotional Benefits of Fasting

  • Because fasting improves clarity and focus, it can become a tool in your life to give you greater freedom, flexibility, and energy to get done the things and projects that are important to you.

Spiritual Benefits of Fasting

  • Another one of the benefits of fasting is that it promotes we take our attention inward, that we listen, become quiet. And that quiet quality time, will also allow, a greater sense of inner being.
  • Without the continual addition of heavy foods into the system, the body takes on a lighter, less dense, feeling. This helps to create a subtle separation from ordinary physical reality and all its worldly things, and instead you begin to sense the presence and power of things beyond this world.
  • Higher states of meditation or prayer becomes clearer and easier to attain.
