Our bodies are designed to heal themselves, however fasting helps healing to take place. Hippocrates, the Father of modern medicine, saw fasting a a remedy within. He once stated "Everyone has a doctor in him or her, and we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.
Our food should be our medicine; our medicine should be our food but to eat when you're sick is to feed your sickness." He clearly recognised that our bodies are wired to fight sickeness. If we are sick, it can be worse if we keep feeding the sickness without a pause. We should fast and pause giving our bodies rest.
Juice cleansing is a road to wellness. Many of the foods we eat are toxic, particularly today's modern diet. We eat foods full of artificial ingredients that our bodies were never built to absorb. Some ice-creams contain formaldehyde (HCHO), and widely known to be connected to cancer. Snack foods, from potato chips to soda, contain artificial colors and flavors that are chemically produced. Heart disease, cancer, and a host of other ailments are caused by the food we consume. Dr. Dean Ornish says that after fasting twelve hours toxins leave your bodies. When you fast poisons that are damaging your system can finally be realeased and you are self healing your body. Juice cleansing gives our body a chance to fight back without having to process new toxins. Accoring to Otto Buchinger, M.D., fasting had an incredible success in curing our bodies. He calls it "the operation without surgery" purifying our systems.
As stated by Thomas A. Edison, "the doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." Hopefully we are getting closer to realizing the damages caused by all the processed food we are consuming.
