Fasting For Allergies
Juice Fasting Helps Allergies
Juice fasting is extremely helpful if you have allergies or asthma. Your lungs, as well as your entire respiratory tract are vitally important elimination organs for removing toxins. Fasting often removes many of the irritants and toxins that trigger airway activity.
Allergies from airborne and food usually improve during a fast. This is because of the close connections between allergies and intestinal permeability and liver toxicity.
Fasting gives the digestive tract time to rest and repair. It also helps the liver detoxify. Allergic symptoms are improved and sometimes completely disappear. However, it’s important to be sure that you are not allergic to any of the juices you’ll be consuming. Keep a food dairy while you’re on the fast. Use it to help you avoid any juices that may trigger allergic symptoms or symptoms of asthma. You may have food allergy testing or simply follow the blood-type diet as discussed in the book Eat Right 4 Your Type.
The fasting method I recommend for complete detoxification is juice fasting. For this type of fast, you will need lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and a juicer or heavy duty blender. Juice fasting verses other forms of fasting can provide the nutrients, amino acids and fuel that your liver requires to detoxify. Juice fasting keeps your colon in the game as compared to water fasting which shuts down your colon.
