The Physical Benefits of Fasting

Articles, Translations, Uncategorized

It protects the body from tumors.

Fasting provides protection against cancerous tumors. Similar to the surgeon’s scalpel, it removes cancerous tumors and damaged or dead cells. The hunger imposed on the body invokes the internal systems to regenerate weak cells in order to adapt to hunger. This presents the body with a golden opportunity to regain its energy and health. Fasting also protects the body from the harm of stones, calcium deposits, adenoids, cysts, and tumors in their early formations.

It protects the body from sugar.

Fasting lowers blood sugar, giving the pancreas a break. Decreasing food intake for ten hours or more means less food in the body, which means less need for insulin released by the pancreas. Thus, the pancreas relaxes, sugar levels balance, and the body regains its health.

It protects against joint pain.

Although joint pain is considered incurable, studies have proven that fasting for at least three consecutive weeks is an effective treatment for joint pain because it rids the body of poisons.
