There are many reasons to consider fasting as a huge benefit to your health.
When you fast and restrict your food intake, the body can rid itself of the toxins that have built up in our fat stores throughout the years.
The digestive system is naturally slowed, which means your body can focus its attention on your immune system, and thus, your body heals itself, repairing all your damaged organs.
Seven days may seem like a very long time to go without food but actually, for the first day or two of a fast, your body uses up the food remaining in your digestive tract from previous meals. For the next day or so, your body uses stored food reserves from your liver. This means that a fast doesn’t really begin until about the fourth day.
Since “fasting” conjures up visions of starvation, it is important to understand that we are talking about JUICE fasting here; not abstinence of any food at all! Freshly made vegetable juices, taken in quantity, are not a beverage. They are a raw, highly digestible, highly nutritious food stuff, which is organic and therefore toxin free. Our bodies find this very easy to digest and convert into the right stuff to fill us up with that vitality we all miss from time to time!
At Amchara Detox, we also supplement our yummy juices with a range of healthy additions, which are safe and effective and are proven to enhance your detox process.
Our additions include Psyllium Husks, which is a natural plant fibre that when mixed with water expands in the stomach, providing a feeling of satiety. The husks are also excellent for cleaning out the colon walls by attaching to the mucous lining of the colon and acting as a vacuum to clear away any old debris, or waste material.
Bentonite is a supplement which acts like a magnet, drawing out toxins from the deep crevices of the colon walls. It works hand in hand with Psyllium, flushing out toxins from the colon.
We also supply a form of digestive enzymes to help you to digest any food currently in your system. As there is an absence of food during fasting, they are also used to eat away at the nasty mucoid plaque that builds up on your colon walls, thus clearing through the layers and layers of impacted matter that have built up on the colon walls over several years.
And finally, at the end of the fast, we provide lacto-bacteria for your post-fast two week supplement course, which will then help your bowel establish a balance of good friendly bacteria and support you on your journey of improved health and vitality.
