Boost Immunity with Fasting

Fasting is a cleansing technique. For good health, we need a balance of cleansing and nourishing. Both cleansing and nourishing require a healthy digestion. Digestion means to separate out the good from the bad, assimilating what is nourishing and eliminating the waste. If someone has good digestion, assimilation and elimination, then fasting isn't indicated.  However, if someone has poor digestion, assimilation and elimination, they could feel undernourished, tired, have food cravings, and be accumulating waste materials in the body. This is when fasting is indicated. Fasting then is a method to promote cleansing of old waste, to re-set the digestion, and to provide for better assimilation, and therefore deep nourishment.

There are counter-indications for fasting. If someone is very young, very old, or very weak, they should not undertake fasting. Also, if someone has a diagnosed illness and is under a doctor's care, they should not undertake fasting on their own.

If you know your constitutional type, please note that vata's should fast the least amount of time, pitta's a moderate amount, and kapha's the greatest amount.
