My mind is always open to learn new things. Thanks to the internet we now have access to amazing new technologies, latest scientific discoveries and interviews with top global health experts!
One of the tools I use to improve my skin and health overall is fasting - the most ancient, inexpensive and powerful healing strategy known to mankind.
Fasting is a practice that has been employed for thousands of years for religious and health reasons. It is simply the practice of not consuming food for a period of time, opting instead for nothing or at least non-caloric beverages like water and herbal teas.
I was doing fasting when I was in my 30s. Then I became too busy with life and quit doing it for almost two decades. Big mistake! Because the effect from my regular fasting just one day a week was profound! Well, I am back on track now and have being practicing fasting for the last several years.
What fascinates me the most about fasting is how good I feel AFTER. Calm and grounded, energetic, alive and sharper mental clarity. I also see visible skin improvement, brighter tone and tighter skin. Skin loves fasting! My skin is literally glowing after 5-days of water fasting!
There are numerous health benefits of fasting. Here are some of them:
* Reduces inflammation in the body;
* Resets the entire immune system;
* Stimulates the development of stem cells;
* Improves genetic repair mechanisms;
* Reduces the risk of chronic disease;
* Activates autophagy (cellular clean up of debris) ;
* Takes stress of the digestive system;
* Stimulates fat burning;
* Boosts energy levels;
* Improves insulin sensitivity;
* Enhanced mental health;
* Improves skin conditions.
Fasting is not just another popular / fashionable fad, it is a lifestyle you choose.
There are different ways to incorporate fasting into your life: intermittent fasting, extended fasting, water fasting, green juice fasting and other fasting strategies.
To me fasting is one more proof that human body has a unique ability to unlock your own potential to heal yourself. As a bonus it helps to improve your skin health. It is a powerful anti-aging tool!
You can learn more about safe fasting by listening to the FREE Fasting Transformation Summit which is playing this weekend. I also recommend checking out Dr. David Jockers website here. He is one of the leading experts on fasting. If you have never done fasting before taking baby-steps is very important as much as choosing the right strategy for YOU by working with functional / integrative medical practitioner.
