Some parts of our World has beautiful Nature, clean air, water, food. And some parts has the opposite : Pollution, contamination, poisons – unfortunately, most of us live in areas, cities, where the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, contain chemicals, toxins and are unnatural.
Yes, we humans are powerful and are our own source of wellness. Yes, our body is intelligent enough to be able to protect, defend, cleanse, purify, heal itself – only if we listen to it, and if we do the necessary to boost our own immune system and healing responses.
Thanks to Ancient Knowledge, and thanks to Modern Technologies, we can now understand and go deeper into detoxing process. Our body gets -and- also eliminates toxins through our kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin. There are various internal cleansing practices that will heal and empower us, physically, mentally and spiritually. The main ones are : Fasting – Exercising – Enema – Sauna. Although practicing these techniques once, can clean up days, months, even years of built-up toxins and unhealthy components, it is wise to live a lifestyle which involves all of these – proper nutrition, physical exercises, rest and cleansing practices.
As our gut is directly linked to our brain, it is wise to take care of it in optimal ways. Even if we take supplements, eat good & nutritious food – but have a clogged and unhealthy gut, we won’t be able to absorb the full nutrients and benefits of these.
So, the key is to get to the root – our lifestyle.
1st STEP : Stop taking in poison.
Let’s stop ingesting, using and putting on ”poison” which are most commonly :
All these poisons enter us through various ways, such as breath, skin, foods, etc – all those act as toxins in our body and are obstacles to our healing process. So, let’s remove or switch to natural alternative.
2nd STEP : Cleansing ourselves internally & externally – Within our body -&- outside our environment.
Let’s Cleanse, detoxify ourselves through various means :
3rd STEP : enhance our defense mechanism, strengthen our immune system, promote our healing responses.
Once all of these steps have been done, you should feel healthier overall.

One of the best videos I know about detoxifying our body and fasting !
Fasting has been practiced since the dawn of Humanity, voluntarily, or involuntarily, for many reasons – physical, emotional, survival, spiritual.
The beauty of fasting is that there are many ways to do it, depending on our intention, the outcome we desire and our overall Life.
Science & Processes of fasting :
In order to survive physically,\, our body & cells needs : Water, Light, Oxygen, Life-Force (Qi) and nutrients.
-We strengthen and develop our receptivity to others sources of Energy :
Water, Light, Oxygen, Life-Force (Qi).
-We cut the main energy supply to cells, bacteria, viruses, thus promoting their switch to survival-mode, or – death. This can lead us to cleanse all kinds of living systems in us (good/bad), but of course, there are limits to what we, physical humans, can endure. Process : our cells, -the weak ones- will die first, and the healthy and strong ones may die – or survive. The key here is to eliminate the old, damaged cells, while maintaining the strong cells (through fasting, our body goes to survival mode, where it recycles nutrients, cleanses waste & toxins (autophagy), uses forms of energy that we store/absorb/create naturally to remain itself alive)- so that when these strong cells receive these essentials again – they will become even healthier and stronger then they were before this process. This allows us to cleanse, and boost our immune system for our optimal health.
I believe we should all follow our body’s call, and fast the way & length we feel is adequate for us.
Through History, Religions, Beliefs & Way of Life, we can see many intentions of fasting :
Health Benefits :
Spirituality : After years of research Dr. Paul Webb and his team published the groundbreaking results of their studies on the human energy balance in the renowned American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Dr. Webb´s work not only exposes the flaws of the Calorie Theory, but implicates that the human body receives energy from an unknown source – “unmeasured energy” – energy from nothing…
And: “The greater the food deficit, the larger was the unmeasured energy”.
Since 1998 mainstream science accepts that only 4.9 percent of the known universe consist of ordinary energy and matter. 26.8 percent consist of Dark Matter and an incredible 68.3 percent consist of Dark Energy. Dark Energy is an invisible and undetectable energy that permeates the whole cosmos and so all our cells. Is it possibly connected to the “unmeasurable energy” that also sustains our body ?
Fasting Methods :
Complete Fast : No liquids, no Solids
Intermittent Fasting : Creating a time window to eat, to fast (generally 8 hours window period to ingest & eat, 14 hours window to digest & rest)
Breatharian Way :
Developing and strengthening our Receptivity to other sources of Energy (mostly cosmic, air and water ) – It’s not about never eating food again, it’s about understanding and energizing our self with cosmic nourishment.
The breatharian concept and an amazing author named Arnold Ehret created a theory that we are “air-gas” machines and we get our energy from the air and the various gases within it and very little from solid foods.
Tips & Suggestions :
Few days, hours prior to – and after- fasting, it is wise to eat a ”fruit and vegetable diet”.
Prior and after the fast are important too. What we have in our body when we go into a fast and what we give our body once we break our fast are essential.
Wisdom & Beliefs :
“Everyone has a physician inside him or her; 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 are sick is to feed your sickness.” – Hippocrates
“Fasting is the first principle of medicine; fast and see the strength of the spirit reveal itself.” – Rumi“
Everyone has a doctor in him; we just have to help him in his work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. …to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.” – Hippocrates
“Fasting is the greatest remedy, the physician within.”- Philippus Paracelsus, one of the three fathers of Western medicine
“Fasting will bring spiritual rebirth to those of you who cleanse and purify your bodies. The light of the world will illuminate within you when you fast and purify yourself. What the eyes are for the outer world, fasts are for the inner.” – Mahatma Gandhi
The body’s wondrous ability to autolyze (or self-digest) and destroy needless tissue such as fat, tumors, blood vessel plaque, and other nonessential and diseased tissues, while conserving essential tissues, gives the fast the ability to restore physiologic youth to the system. By removing or lessening the burden of diseased tissue, including the fatty tissue narrowing the blood vessels, fasting increases the blood flow and subsequent oxygenation and nutrient delivery to vital organs throughout the body- Joel Fuhrman, M.D
“Instead of using medicine, rather, fast a day.”
Shatkarma (Six Actions/Purifying Practices)
The intention of Shatkarma is to cleanse (excess of external poisons, toxins) and balance (physically, mentally, spiritually) our whole physical system.
The intention in this cleansing technique is to cleanse our nasal pathways.
Essential : Dry your nostrils by breathing in and out in quickly and forcefully, starting from one side to the other, and then when your head in centered. This needs to be done as water might have been trapped in sinus cavities.
The intention in this cleansing technique is to cleanse our intestines.
4. Once completed, drink once again 60cl-1 L of the solution.
5. Second Round : Repeat/Perform the same 5 Asanas 8 times each
6. After completing second cycle, drink once more 60cl-1L
7. Repeat/perform for the third and last time the 5 Asanas, 8 times each.
Vaman Dhauti (Regurgitative Cleansing)
Enema is flushing, detoxing our intestines by inserting liquid through our rectum. It flushes out toxins, bacterias, congested foods, stool (feces) that has built up in our bowels. This process helps to cleanse our digestive tracts.
Water and Salt Enemas are advised when beginning.
Do only when you know is needed.
Before and after, drink plenty of fluids, eat liquid foods.
Once you are ready to go further, feel free to check on other liquids that help flush our body.
