Fasting, well done and with caution, es el mejor instrumento que tiene nuestro organismo para recuperar la salud.
Since ancient times, many cultures have used fasting as a means of purification., both spiritually and physically.
We have many references in the Bible as well as in the Arab people, of how his prophets have fasted as a means of connecting with God.
In the animal world it is very common to see animals stop eating when they are sick. They look for some herb to purge and only eat again when their body regains balance and health.
Man is the only animal that keeps eating, in the course of an acute illness, even if I'm not hungry.
We do not know how to listen to our body.
The general belief is that when we fast we can lack essential vitamins and nutrients that can lead to death.
It should be noted that fasting consists of not eating any type of food but we must drink water.
Without water, there is no life
Man, like animals, can be fasting for days and weeks thanks to the reserves they have.
Thin people also have significant reserves, even many times more than many obese people, contrary to what it may seem.
Although we fast, the nutrition of our body does not stop at any time.

There is a loss of fat, what we call fat is still accumulated toxemia.
They can go from 30 a 40 days before our body feeds on vital tissues and structures for our survival.
