Benefits of Detoxing, Cleansing, and Fasting
The main benefit of a detox is the restoration of your body’s natural self-healing abilities. During the first 12 hours of a detox, your body stops the process of metabolizing i.e. converting food into energy. The energy that the body would use to process food then gets redirected into self-healing.
The physiological benefits will include disease prevention, reduced symptoms from many different ailments, cleansing the body, giving digestive organs a rest, overall rejuvenation, weight loss, clearer skin, slower aging, increased flexibility, improved fertility and enhanced senses.
The more subtle benefits of detox can include getting in touch with a deeper sense of yourself, by freeing yourself from toxins and allowing the body to utilize the energy from digestion you become more receptive to subtle changes. These can include having a clearer mind, heightened intuition, opening up emotionally and allowing for more positive possibilities to enter our lives.
