Fasting & Enemas… For A Clean Body
by Philip G. Jones
A hundred years ago, life was very different here on earth. The
air was cleaner and the earth was rich in nutrients. Then, in
our need to feed our ever-increasing population, we gradually
changed the quality of the air we breathe and our once nutrient
rich soil is now sorely lacking. We now live in world of
chemicals and pollutants in our air, water and food.
Our bodies, amazing as they are, were not designed to handle
this kind of constant onslaught. Is there anything we can do
about it? You Bet! You may feel that you can’t change the
world, but you can minimize the effects all this has on your
Fasting is one of the quickest ways to detox your body and it
can be done safely. A three-day fast can do wonders for your
body. If you are pregnant or have some chronic health problems
then fast only under the supervision of a health care
Our bodies store toxins but wants to rid it self of them. When
you do a fast it releases toxins from the tissues and they go
into the blood stream. We then can experience things like
headaches, fatigue and body aches, smelly stool, etc. Although
this may seem unpleasant to experience, the results you get
from doing the fast has its reward of a cleaner more alert you.
Have you noticed that when you are ill you don’t feel like
eating anything? That’s the body’s way of handling
going on. It naturally fasts. Why? Because when you give the
digestive system a break, the body can get rid of the toxins
and concentrate on immune function, cell growth and cleaning
out your colon.
There is a right and a wrong way to fast. Don’t do just
fast. There seems to be a misconception that you only drink
water to fast. Not so. As well as 8 to 10 glasses of water you
should drink diluted pure juices except for orange or tomato
juice. Fresh lemon squeezed into water is great for helping
detox the liver. Herbal teas a couple of times a day can be
very soothing and satisfying.
As well as doing a fast, it would be very helpful in speeding
up the healing and cleansing process by doing enemas. Getting
rid of old or impacted feces will greatly aid in your health
and well being. A coffee enema works great. Before you put the
coffee grounds in the pot, open up a capsule of slippery elm
bark and aloe vera and add it to the grounds. Make sure you use
purified water, not tap water. Then follow with a lemon cleanse.
Between fasting and colon cleansing, you can detox and cleanse
your body and feel great.
I hope this helps.
