Effects of Fasting on the Brain
We are a physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual whole. Each
realm influences and is dependent upon the others. It is no surprise,
then, to realize that an effective program that restores physical
health would also have great effects on our emotional, intellectual,
and spiritual selves.
People routinely have a spiritual experience, an awakening, a deeper
spiritual awareness resulting for several days of fasting.
Our intelligence processes are also enhanced. This should not be
surprising, because we know that our brain operates on a chemical
level, too. It needs to be properly fed and oxygenated. It must be
freed of any toxins that have crossed the blood/brain barrier.
All this has a direct bearing upon how
we respond to stimuli with our emotions. We are, after
all, a complex whole.
A juice fast lifts the spirit
It is the common experience of those who
take a juice fast that their spirits are immediately
lifted. They have a clarity of mind, a confidence,
brightness and a lightness of spirit that comes when the
toxic burden begins to lift. They routinely sleep
'better than they have for years,' awaked refreshed with
less time in bed, and have a more optimistic and
positive attitude regarding themselves and others. They
are much nicer people to 'live with.'
They will also be more ambitious, picking up on tasks
that they have long neglected. They will have enthusiasm
and confidence that they haven't shown for a long time.
They will be more energetic and adventurous, more loving
and kind. They will be a much better person as the
burden is lifted from their bodies, minds, hearts and
This is not a surprising phenomenon, because we know
that the body of truth by which we operate is 90%
perception. When our 'perceiving mechanism' is healed,
our view of who we are and what we are about in this
world, and out perception of other people may be
We feel like standing taller and 'looking the world in
the eye,' rather than cowering in misery and defeat.
The burden of illness takes its toll
This can all be brought about because
this 'whole person' has carried the burden of the
illness for a long time and it has taken its toll. Once
you experience this deliverance, you may be encouraged
to push further into realizing the benefits of a juice
fast for a month or more, and as you realize the price
you have paid for your ignorance, you may be inspired to
go deeper into the benefits of assuming a healthier
lifestyle in other ways besides changing your diet.
Fasting is beneficial
Fasting has been beneficial in cases of
paralysis, neuritis, neuralgia, neuroses and mental
illness. Dr. E. A. Moras tells of a woman who fasted for
seven days on strained orange juice. She had been
mentally ill for eight months and treated by eminent
neurologists. Her condition improved to the point of
being cured by the fifth week after the fast.
Medical science faces limitations
Medical science faces tremendous
limitations when it comes to healing the brain. The
complexity of this organ allows only the most basic
intervention. Prescription drugs can have dangerous side
effects because of the brain’s delicate balance. Fasting
may be the most sensible route to healing mental
disorders. It is well known that the brain, if given the
opportunity, has a capacity of healing. Fasting will
intensify the healing. I have seen a mentally deranged
person stabilize in three days of juice fasting. SevereJuice Fasting Weight Loss Resource:
