Our bodies are constantly processing things that come into them: food, drink, even air. It's a process that is continuous, operating from morning to night, day after day, whether we are asleep or awake. Even our bodies, the "human miracle machines" that they are, need a deep rest from time to time. The Miracle of Fasting: Proven Throughout History for Physical, Mental & Spiritual Rejuvenation, by father-and-daughter team Drs. Paul and Patricia Bragg, guides readers through the process of giving their bodies the much needed rest from the constant processing of food. Fasting allows the person's body to equilibrate, and come down from the effects of stimulating foods like caffeine and sugars, or lower the excess amount of salt and toxins people ingest everyday, according to the authors. It also gives an overloaded digestive system to catch up and rest. The goal of fasting, say the authors, is to allow for the body's own natural processes to self-heal, self-repair, and self-rejuvenate. Done correctly, fasting is not starvation, or even deprivation, according to the authors, who recommend a juice fast, which provides the energy and nutrients for a faster, as a precursor to a water fast, which aids in purification of the body's internal systems. Fasting, they say, can alleviate many conditions, from overweight to joint pains. It normalizes weight for people who have a tendency to overeat, or eat too fast, and, say the Braggs, it can also improve appearance. The book also explores the benefits of fasting on one's health and spirituality -- keys to an overall healthy and vibrant lifestyle. Paul C. Bragg, originator of health stores in America, and his daughter, Patricia, are world-renowned health crusaders. They have changed millions of lives through their books, teachings, lectures and media appearances.… (more)
