Today is Day 5 of my 5 Day water fast! I made it! I will be breaking my fast with soup and crackers.
It was a challenge, but I’m glad I did it. One aspect of fasting that doesn’t get discussed is the mental benefits of fasting.
Here’s my update on the fast:
Many of the foods we eat have a direct impact on our mental health. For example, energy drinks are a stimulant that can have an impact on your brain. In addition, many comfort foods contain high amounts of sugar, which is believed to cause inflammation in the brain, leading to memory difficulties.
By fasting, the brain can create healthy new cells to protect it from many diseases, including Alzheimer’s.
Fasting is a great for body, but it has a positive impact on brain health as well. Many of these are not typically discussed in mainstream media, but the benefits are undeniable.
Fasting isn’t easy, but I believe its on of the best things we can do for our overall health. There are many diet plans available, but by simply not eating, you give your body the ability to heal itself and remove dangerous toxins naturally. if a person is able, I suggest they give fasting a try.
