"I fast for greater physical and mental efficiency" - Plato

For Body: Juice fasting is the oldest, fastest and safest (biochemical) method of removing unwanted weight and increases physical well-being , helps you to stay slim, healthy and vital, and is a huge help in the breaking of addictions.

 

For Mind: As the physical body detoxifies, rejuvenates and regenerates, the mind begins to function more efficiently. During the fast, the digestive system has a rest, freeing up energy for other things. This energy is used by the mind - bringing mental clarity. Fasting develops mental will power and increased control over the senses and mind.

 

For Spirit: All the major religions practice fasting in some form or another. Fasting allows the body and mind to become still, and in the stillness, one is more likely to tune into the secrets of Life, and to connect with Spirit.

Why do you need to fast?

Just about everybody benefits from fasting. Even those who live a relatively healthy life-style still have toxins. Due to old and often bad nutritional habits, environmental pollutants, stresses and strains of life situations most of us suffer from toxic deposits throughout the body. With the elimination of these toxins, remarkable and sometimes incredible changes can and have occurred.

Here, at Moinhos Velhos, we have experienced and witnessed the complete reversal of so-called  incurable diseases (like Psoriasis), the cessation of chronic migraines, the elimination of allergies and back problems, and dramatic relief from the discomforts and pains of rheumatic and arthritic sufferers etc. Even if you feel you are relatively healthy, a fast is a wonderful preventative measure against aging and possible future ill-health.

Fasting provides a much-needed rest for the internal organs. The functions of restores and normalizes glandular, metabolic and nervous-system functions; speeding up the elimination of morbid accumulations, toxic wastes and dead cells; accelerating new cell and tissue generation and enhancing cell-oxygenation.

Juice fasting can help to lose surplus weight

The benefits of fasting are on so many levels, and different people choose to do our program for various reasons. A number of people enquire as to whether they will lose weight. If you have weight to lose, you will certainly lose some of it - depending on how long you fast for. It is also an excellent first step to losing weight and changing bad eating habits.

Low calorie and other fad "diets" usually fail because they literally starve the body of much-needed nutrients, causing even greater biochemical imbalance. Thus, when one can no longer stand to continue with the diet because of how heavily the body is craving what is denied, one is usually forced to binge to the point of gaining more weight than was lost, further lowering self-esteem.

During scientific juice-fasting however, the body autolyzes - self-digests its own stored substances, re synthesizing nutrients and eliminating toxins. Additionally, fruit and vegetable juices, alkalinising vegetable broth, and herbal teas all add vitamins, minerals and trace elements to the body, in addition to aiding detoxification.

After the fast, the body is better able to digest food and is better at utilizing nutrients in the food. The organs have a new vitality - any sluggishness will have disappeared. If the body was prone to water-retention, this also disappears.
