What health benefits can we get from Fasting?

1. Fasting allows us to naturally detoxify our body.  We are what we eat. Avoiding all forms of unneeded and excess foods allow our body to rid itself of unnecessary substances and its metabolic by-products that eventually restores the balance of nutrients.

 2. Fasting help overcome addictions. Sugar addiction is the most common form, followed by smoking, then the rest that includes drugs, and many other vices. Discipline that we achieved is the key to success in beating all these.

3. Helps maintain ideal body weight, normalizes blood sugar, reduces blood pressure, and improves immunity. Self-imposed dietary control saves you from buying expensive diet programs to stay fit. Fasting improves sugar metabolism, while it promotes relaxation that assures reduced blood pressure.

4. Fasting promotes healing. Gastritis, hyperacidity, hypertension and diabetes are commonly aggravated by foods that we take. Avoiding such promotes normalization of physiologic state of our gastro-intestinal tract and cardio vascular system.

5. Fasting relieves mental stress. Putting yourself into a state of “forced relaxation” answers our commonly neglected solution to all stressors of life.

Recommended during SAHUR (meal before the start of fasting)
