Fasting with only water is the most challenging form of fasting. Fasting, though, is the ancient and traditional way to turn the focus back to your body and its physiological needs. In particular, fasting on only water is the fastest way to detoxify your body and help it restore its functionality.
In recent years, there’s been an increase in media coverage of periodic fasts – how they can increase your life span, help you lose weight, give you more energy, and offer other health benefits. When done right, fasting is a clarifying, interesting journey – but the process can seem intimidating, overwhelming, and downright torturous if you don’t do it correctly and safely.
