Why Detox?

Why Detox?

In today’s world it is impossible to avoid exposure to and the consumption of toxins. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat all have a certain amount of harmful chemicals. These toxic materials accumulate in the body tissues. In addition, most of us have a high degree of stress in our lives. Stress inhibits proper digestion of food, which in turn creates a toxic environment in the stomach and digestive organs.

Therefore, a periodic internal cleansing or detox of the body is most beneficial in preventing disease. Fasting gives the body a much-needed rest, eliminates toxic build up and greatly strengthens the immune system, which is our body’s defence against disease.

Some people who have been diagnosed with an incurable disease have healed themselves by fasting. It is an ancient form of healing that has been rediscovered and is now being offered at health retreats around the globe.


The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.  – Thomas Edison


If you bring forth what is within you,

what you bring forth will save you.

If you do not bring forth what is within you,

what you do not bring forth will destroy you.
