What is Therapeutic Fasting ?
There are many kinds of fasting. But we use therapeutic fasting in nature cure to revive person’s energy conditions so that energy can be utilised effectively in working towards clearing the organism from any diseases at that present moment according to the view point of the body not according to our diagnosis. The body has a very different system of looking onto the functions of the body and the vitality requirements by every organ is priority based segregation and supplementation and not our urgency based supplementation. In order to let the body to take over it own priority route, we have to conserve the vital force which we can effectively do by undergoing a fasting therapy for a few days depending upon the person’s ability and requirement under proper guidance of a qualified nature cure doctor.
Most doctors are very scared of fasting because we are wrongly addicted towards the calorific value of food components. The calorific claim of any food component is technically baseless when we apply it to biological beings like human beings or animals. The calorie calculation cannot match any of our actual life. It is only a physical and chemical or mathematical understanding we can have based on calories. So if you want to do fasting, get the guidance. Do not get scared about the calorie what you may not be able to get. Calorie does not give you health. Only proper nutrition with adequate digestion and frequent fasting can definitely keep your body much more healthy than calculating calories and consuming.
