Why Fasting?

Fasting cleanses our body of  toxins while enabling our metabolic system to switch over to its fat burning mode.  Fasting  facilitates the full use of our body's natural design by forcing it to utilize  its "scarcity mode", an innate system that often goes unused in our culture of caloric excess.

In recent years, fasting has re-emerged as an ancient practice that has captured the attention of the scientific community and the health field. Although fasting has been used for thousands of years as a religious and cultural practice, its popularity has grown in modern times due to a growing body of research supporting its profound health benefits.

Insulin Sensitivity & Weight Loss

Fasting can help improve insulin sensitivity, which is crucial for individuals dealing with conditions such as prediabetes, metabolic syndrome, or type 2 diabetes.

By regulating blood sugar levels and promoting weight loss, fasting can contribute to better metabolic health and weight management.

Hormonal Balance

Hormonal imbalances can cause a range of health issues, including irregular menstrual cycles, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or symptoms associated with menopause.

Fasting has been shown to positively influence hormone levels and balance hormonal function in some cases, offering potential relief for individuals experiencing hormonal issues.

Gut Health & Digestive Disorders

Fasting gives the digestive system a break, allowing it to heal and regenerate.

It can promote a healthy gut environment, balance gut bacteria, and potentially alleviate symptoms associated with digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or acid reflux.
