Fasting breaks down fat reserves, mobilises and eliminates stored toxins. Fasting results in a slower metabolic rate, more efficient protein production, an improved immune system, and the increased production of hormones. The Human Growth Hormone is released more frequently during a fast, as well as enhanced production of an anti-aging hormone. Basically: We feel rejuvenated and we live longer!
Fasting induces appropriate weight loss - minimal for some and major for others, all with little to no hunger. Stomach size shrinks while fasting therefore after the fast you will be satisfied by less food (but by living longer you get to eat more of it!)
Fasting provides ease or permanent relief from painful chronic symptoms such as asthma, hay fever, allergies, inflammatory symptoms (such as arthritis), chronic back aches, swelling of abdomen or ankles, reduces high blood pressure etc... During detox the body's energy transfers from endless digestion of the latest heavy meal to cleaning and repairing itself, as it is naturally designed to do.
Fasting promotes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Skin, eyes and hair appear bright and shiny. Enthusiasm and positivity regarding life circumstance and decision making is enhanced. Emotional obstacles can be released. This is greatly enhanced through the colonics.
Fasting also promotes a healthy life style by overcoming addictions, and generally moves the whole spectrum of life-style choices towards the more refined end. People regularly give up tobacco and alcohol after Karuna Detox Retreats.
Fasting gives the digestive system a complete rest. Colonics contribute to clearing the colon wall of old accumulations (product of undigested food!) and provide an opportunity to maintain healthy intestinal flora. All of which enhance absorption of nutrients, resulting in improved digestion post-fast!
Fasting increases sensitivity and enthusiasm for wholesome health-promoting life decisions, including which foods to buy and eat (recipes and demonstrations all follow your fast). You will find yourself desiring more organic raw juicy fruit, salads, nuts and seeds and the company of nurturing people!
