What Happens to Your Body During a Fast?
When you are fasting, the body goes into rest mode. It there is allowed to focus energy toward all those chemical and mechanical processes which include detoxification, rejuvenation and rebuilding. Blood and energy’s power might are refocused from the digestive systems major employ of energy. That freed power is sent to parts of our body that need repairing or rebuilding entirely with healthy tissues and structures. Your body knows how to clean itself when given the opportunity. [This works more efficient if rest/sleep/meditation and such are added to the fast.] It is optimum healing time.
We cast off toxins in many ways, e.g., lungs, liver, skin, kidneys and colon. When these dirty laundry shots of elimination are clogged up with toxins, our bodies are forced to look for other ways to eliminate the bad stuff from our general system. That is when we notice things like mucous, discharges, sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. When the body finds no way to have elimination or isolation of toxins, blockages appear in our body’s energy flow. Then the toxins will be stored in any tissues in our body, joints, vessels, muscles, organs, etc.
When we are fasting, our physical bodies enter a deep stage of profound body rest. You stop adding toxins. When we are eating, no matter how hard we try to avoid it, there is toxin intakes.
The fast is when autolysis and elimination process fire up. During the fast’s first days of a fasting you cleanse out loads of waste material and digestive residues into blood stream. When this happens you may notice things like cold feet or hand, slight trembling, strong breath, headache, body odour, etc. The tongue usually becomes heavily film coated, but this will be seen to decrease as the fast further cleans.
Then comes the next phase of the cleanse, we experience a diminished hunger for food. While this cleansing proceeds, it removes diseased, dead, and dying cells. At this time we have mucous, excess fat, hardened coating of mucous on intestinal wall, toxins in lymphs, blood, organs and tissues eliminated.
Then comes a surprising event; you will feel magical because you experience an energetic state with no feeling of hunger.
Finally if the fast goes on long enough, you will run into hunger again. That is when the body is starting to eat good muscles and organs. You are starting to enter starvation. You have left fasting. Break correctly the fast as soon as is practicable. You are exceeding the limits of therapeutic fasting. This is on down the line and most never get to this point. But if you do, take note and break-fast, if this second hunger happens.
