Fasting, Nutrition and Diet Therapy

Naturopathy, including all means of cure, gives diet a prominent place in its therapy. “A balanced diet is the strongest shield against degenerative diseases”.

Fasting is the most powerful natural healing method. It is nature’s ancient, universal “remedy” for a wide range of health problems. Therapeutic fasting for health purposes begins with absolute abstinence from food and ends when the elimination of toxic waste and the regeneration of disease tissues has been accomplished as manifested by the return of natural hunger. Fasting is purifying and rejuvenating process of body and mind. During fasting, the energy typically used for digestion is diverted to the removal of toxins.

Nutrition is an important aspect of one’s overall health and development. Better nutrition is attributed to healthier new-born, child and maternal health, stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, a lower risk of noncommunicable diseases (such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease), and longevity.

Diet therapy is a broad word that refers to changing or adopting a diet in order to prevent or treat disease or just maintain good health. In some circumstances, an alternate dietary lifestyle plan to remove particular foods may be designed in order to reclaim health.
