the healing power of intermittent fasting

The idea behind calorie restriction and fasting is not new in medicine but modern pharmaceuticals may like to protray it as a ‘recent fad’. Science is going ‘back to the future’ in rediscovering the power of intermittent fasting as seen in recent documentaries like the BBC’s Eat, Fast and Live Longer.

Methods of fasting have been used  help the body heal and repair for thousands of years. Think even about how our bodies have evolved from hunter gather society – we were designed with feast/famine in mind.

Initially you might think denying oneself of food might have the oppostie effect to healing. However every time we eat food causes the body to go into a state of low level inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many diseases in the body. Additionally the energy liberated from the digestive process allows the body to go into a deep healing mode. When we are constantly eating the body has no time to repair.

Headaches, poor digestion, allergies, weight issues, anxiety and pain can all be attributed to the body not having time to detox and repair.

There are lots of options to give your body a break. Whilst juice fasting gives more rapid effects it can be a shock for some peoples body, other methods of healthy calorie restricted eating can provide the same benefits they just need to be adhered to for longer periods of time. Ask me to find out the best method for you.

It’s essential though that your diet between calorie restriction/fasting periods is highly nutritious. The body must have a good stock of nutrients to help with the healing process. This is where maintenance programs are just as important as the fast itself. That’s why I’ve included companies in my detox portfolio that offer healthy eating programs outside of your detox should you require their service.

We are often short of time and money – but what better investment is there than in your own health. It’s not just about adding years to your life – it’s about adding quality healthy productive years to your life. To get on the path to health start here!

detox – not just for girls!

Think detox is for girls  – think again!

I know some of my investment banking colleagues use to see detox as a fashion trend for girls – then they met me! I explained to them that detoxing is far from a modern fad. It’s an ancient healing technique that was used frequently in Egyptian times, in Ayruveda, by Hippocrates the father of western medicine and was used frequently until the advent of modern medicine.

As digestion takes up to 70% of our bodies energy when the digestive tract is not at work it can heal and repair and the energy liberated from the digestive process goes into healing tissues in the body. It’s not unusual for old injuries to begin to heal again after a few days into the detox process.

Recently the BBC Horizon program Eat, Fast and Live Longer highlighted the benefits of different fasting techniques on our health – focusing on men in their 40-50’s. You have the choice of going down a path of medications and ill health or watching what you eating and living out more healthy productive years in your life.

Of course it’s not just your blood stats that are going to improve either. Inner health radiates out and I know you guys want a flatter stomach, clearer skin, brighter eyes, increased mental clarity just as much as the rest of us! A lot of men get worried about losing muscle weight but remember there are lots of options out there, including healthy eating plans with more protein designed for highly active individuals. And if you have been doing intensive training a short sharp juice cleanse may be all you need for that tricky fat stripping stage that brings increased definition to your abdominals.

So relax. You’ve come to the right place! So don’t be shy get in contact with me and I can show you the way… click here to start!

 

why detox?

Detoxing is about giving our body a break. Far from being a modern fad, the philosophy of detoxification began thousands of years ago. In Ayurveda detox was an important part of health routines for emotional and physical cleansing. It’s not just about food either. Emotions also have a toxic effect on the body and if not dealt with can be stored. Detoxification is about breaking from the routine of daily life to allow time for the emotional and dietary toxins to be processed.

No matter how healthy your diet the body still needs time to cleanse and repair.  Think for a moment how much work the different organs in our body do daily. For example the liver is responsible for controlling blood sugar levels, synthesising cholesterol, blood cleansing, immune function, and detoxification of chemicals such as waste products of metabolism and breakdown of old hormones! Detoxification is a way to give the body a break and allow the liver and other parts of our digestive system to “catch up”.  In this cleaner state the body functions more efficiently and as such many clients feel energised, have better skin, notice an improvement in mood and their weight normalises.

There are many types of detox plans ranging from juice fasting to raw food to cooked Ayurvedic food and many combinations. Some allow detoxification faster than others, and its important to factor in individual biochemical differences in people as well as lifestyle. It’s essential your body is suitably nourished before the program as the detoxification pathways require specific vitamins and minerals. All the channels of elimination in the body must be functioning at their best as well to deal with the release of toxins. If not eliminated in a timely manner toxins can cause unnecessary ill health.
