Fasting – Words From Gaea

Fasting has existed since the beginning of life of earth.

An ill or injured animal’s first instinct is to abstain from solid food until it is again healthy. They instinctively know that the healing process will be much faster and more effective when it abstains from solid food that will burden its digestive tract. This instinct has always existed within the animal kingdom.

The human body also has this same instinct, for it is common for most people to stop eating when illness strikes. There is a widespread practice of fasting in many religious cultures, both ancient and modern, around the world.

Fasting has been both as a religious ritual and for preventing and curing diseases. Fasting purifies the body of earth’s wide variety of pollutants, thereby improving bodily health and function. Many health advocates today fast several times a year. Fasting improves the body’s capacity and ability to better utilize the food eaten.

The Fasting Process

During a fast, many biochemical processes will take place in the body, resulting in many reactions outside the body as well.

The body’s metabolism is a complicated procedure involving intestinal digestion, nutrient transport through the blood, lymphatics for energy and tissue building and the transport of waste products and toxins to the body’s excretory organs.  The excretory organs, include the large intestine, the kidneys, the bladder, the lungs and the sweat glands/skin.  These metabolic processes will take place whether you supply the body with food or not.

While fasting, the body feeds itself on the most impure and inferior materials and all morbid accumulations of tumors, abscesses, fat deposits and damaged tissue. All of these accumulations cause illness and even death. The body is cleansing itself and other tissues at a cellular level and is dissipating large pockets of clustered proteins and filth and toxic waste into the bloodstream. Care must be taken to make sure that excretory organs are doing their job, by daily enemas, deep exhaling through exercise or routine and cleansing the skin.
