Dec. 21, 2017; by Briana McDonald, Staff Writer- Silver Bulletin e-News Magazine (UtopiaSilver.com) The practice of fasting has been around since the dawn of time. Before we lived in a world of excess, our ancestors would often go days between meals and this was very normal. In many studies, it is proven that fasting animals systematically increased their life span up to 2-3 times. James F. Balch, M.D. Co-Author of “Prescription for Nutritional Healing” states; “By relieving the body of the work of digesting foods, fasting allows the system to rid itself of toxins, while facilitating healing. Fasting regularly gives your organs a rest and helps reverse the ageing process for a longer, healthier life.” With the amazing benefits I have personally received from fasting I wanted to put together a brief beginners guide to fasting that will ensure success with your efforts.
