Curative fasting is one of the most well-known forms of body cleansing, It is being used by almost all cultures and religions not only for the cleansing of the body, but of the mind as well. Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad, they all fasted. Even Plato and Socrates used to have regular 10-day fasts to achieve a higher state of spiritual understanding. Hippocrates was using fasting as a healing method as early as in the 5th century BC. His opinion was that the food a man eats is used to feed the illness as well, therefore it is necessary first to purge everything from the body that is not needed. Fasting improves your organism’s immunity, accelerates healing of wounds and people are less likely to get infected by a virus. During a fast you feel that not only your body, but also your mind are lighter. You will suddenly see your life and problems from a different angle, you will be able to concentrate better and work longer. The body will automatically focus on areas that are out of order and will start to repair them. For example in case of joint aches it will concentrate on cleansing the sedimented salts and renewing the cartilages, in case of cancer on removing the cancerous cells.
