Nutritional Reset – Food Is My Medicine

Food Is My Medicine

Reviewing My Process

Food Is My Medicine, is the theme of this blog and it is now 14 days in, since my 90-day Radical Self-care Healing Journey began. By completing my radical self-care journal to identify What my intention is? My why? And What I will need? I feel more clued up and prepared for the changes that I am about to implement into my lifestyle.

Goody (Body) Detox and Fasting

Why Detox

Our bodies has its own natural in-built detoxification system. Our liver, kidneys, and lungs are constantly working to remove toxins and waste products. However, due to many reasons such as excess toxins within our goody (bodies,) our detoxification systems can become overwhelmed and in need of support. By using food is my medicine method and other healing techniques, it is my intention to return balance and harmony within my goody (body).

Why Fasting

There are so many different types of fasting techniques such as:

  • Juice and Vegetables Fasting
  • Water Fasting
  • Intermittent Fasting
  • 24-hour Fasting
  • Alternate Day Fasting

Just as there are many different types of fasting, there are many reasons why people would commit to a fasting lifestyle:

  • Improved Gut Health: Fasting may allow your gut to rest and improve the balance of gut bacteria.
  • Increased Energy Levels: Some people find they have more energy after adapting to a fasting routine.
  • Address Health Issues: Some people have found relief from arthritis through fasting.
  • Spiritual Benefits: Fasting is a practice in many religions and cultures, seen as a way to connect with something greater than oneself.
  • Food Is My Medicine: Eating to live is the key here, not living to eat.

Potential Benefits Of A Fasting Lifestyle

  • Weight Loss:  Fasting can be a tool for weight loss by restricting calorie intake. During a fasting window, your body burns stored energy for fuel, which can lead to weight reduction.
  • Improved Blood Sugar Control: Studies suggest fasting may improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar management, potentially benefiting those with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.
  • Cellular Repair and Longevity:  Research suggests fasting may trigger cellular repair mechanisms and promote the growth of new cells, potentially contributing to longevity and a reduced risk of chronic diseases.
  • Reduced Inflammation:  Fasting may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to various health problems like heart disease and arthritis.
  • Improved Mental Clarity:  Some people report experiencing increased focus, concentration, and mental clarity during fasting periods.

My 30-Day Detoxing Program

My detox plan is to address releasing excess toxins, reducing inflammation, restoring healthy gut microbiome and cleansing my blood. My Food Is My Medicine Method will allow me to slowly and naturally address some of my health concerns.
