Summer time fine...but on the inside?

Do you want to get Summer Solstice Sexy but don't know how? I may have JUST THE THING you need. 👀

Water Fasting. Yes that means not ingesting ANY SOLID FOODS or any liquids that contain a caloric content such as fruit juice or smoothies. 

With the Summer Solstice 🌞 approaching, it is a great time to release what the body mind and spirit no longer needs and take a on a new consciousness. 🌀

Water Fasting is the perfect way to achieve such consciousness. 🌊


We eat three meals a day because… well because everyone else does. And because that’s how we were raised. And because we get hungry if we don’t eat for 4-6 hours. Many of the foods in our modern diet (particularly meat, grains and sugars), combined with eating constantly, has made our bodies lazy and largely turned off their ability to consume themselves. That might sound gross, but it’s a totally natural, healthy and important process.

Why is that you might ask? 

Central to many of these benefits is a process called “autophagy.” Autophagy is the body’s natural process of killing off, eating up, or cleaning out bad cell matter that’s built up in your body. It’s an important system for staving off many diseases, including preventing cancer development.

Not only that, but reduced autophagy (the state that most of our diets leaves us in) leads to accelerated cell aging, which explains why in numerous studies on lab animals from single cells to mice to monkeys, restricting their caloric intake significantly increased their lifespan, even when that restriction was occasional (i.e. fasting every once in a while).

Oh wait? There’s more? Yes! It turns out that autophagy induced through caloric restriction also slows neurodegeneration and is one of the few things that can lead to production of new brain cells. This research suggests that fasting can protect you against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers and Parkinsons. This is also likely why epileptic and autistic people respond very well to fasting.

(During any type of cleanse, especially fasting, it is a prime time for skin to purge toxins via the pores. Exfoliate the face and body 2 times a week, Facial cleansing daily is essential to removing toxins that surface and may cause inflammation as well as doing a deep cleansing mask treatment following exfoliation) 

More benefits to water fasting? 

A Higher frequency, healthier menstruation, better sleep cycles, more discipline, self awareness, connection to nature, healthier body image, clearer skin, healthier gums, better eyesight, non-odorous breath, elevated mood and energy, release of negative impressions, emotional healing, clearer state of mind , heightened creativity, lighter and more flexible body temple, healthier metabolism and digestion as well as a cleaner colon and of course weight loss are just a few of the benefits of doing a prolonged water fast.

DISCLAIMER: Having to go it alone isn't always easy and before you decide to do a water fast much preparation needs to take place. I am not a doctor. If you are considering doing the fast do more research to be sure that it is right for you. Various health conditions and lifestyle choices such as alcoholism and diabetes may not warrant a water fast. If you are sick or have any form of compromised health or your under the care of a medical or naturopathic doctor, seek their approval before beginning a water fast. Good luck.
