Fasting for faster health has many health benefits, but if used incorrectly can produce adverse reactions, especially with the state of our nations health today. Many people are ill, overweight, overloaded with toxicity from junk food and environmental pollutants and under prepared for the fasting process.
If your organs of detoxification are not working efficiently you can have real health challenges from day to day which can be exacerbated by the fasting process and liver damage can occur.

Types of Fasting:
Option A – fast for breakfast & lunch with a light meal in the evening
Option B – 24 hr fast
This fast is best done on a day off from work initially.
Allows the body to catch up on elimination and digestion
Gives the body an opportunity to divert energy into general healing
Helps to detox and clear the mind
A greater appreciation of food and portion sizes

2. Two Day Fast:
Blood sugar management is critical – use bone broth, watered down fresh juices such as carrot or orange so that you cant taste the sweetness.
Do not do any kind of hazardous work until you are familiar with how your body responds.
Can cause significant detoxification response
Can cause the liver to be exposed to dangerous toxins stored in fat if the individual is malnourished.
A deeper rest for organs of digestion

A rest for organs of detoxification/elimination in those with good general health
Helps remove influences of foodstuffs and drinks from the mind allowing better mental clarity, deeper meditation, and can open voyances.

Effective for healing and detoxification, but should be overseen by an experienced health practitioner. Can bring spiritual clarity through visions and voyances.

I would recommend before you start a detox to do a junk food detox – try cutting out all the junk food, alcohol drugs in your diet for 1 week first and see what the reactions are. If you don’t eat junk food and feel healthy then start with the mini fast and see how you go !
Fasting to lose weight as part of a crash diet is not recommended – it will do more harm than good.
You must ensure you don’t have to do any hard manual work, adequate amounts of water to stay hydrated and assist in the detox process – remember the solution to pollution is dilution.
If you are Overweight – must be careful due to the release of excess toxins from the fat stores into the detox organs.
Underweight – You may lack the nutrition to support the detox pathways – as your body is already fasting due to starvation.
Homeostasis ( a balance) should be achieved before commencing
On breaking a fast the body gets hungry avoid eating a large meal rather gradually build up to normal food levels. Soup or salad is a good option as a first meal.
Fasting for Faster Health – Enjoy the process…
