The purer your body, the more aware and sensitive you are to things that are harmful. Former habits will be repulsive especially regarding smoking, alcohol, drugs, junk foods, meat, etc. If you become tempted by some former food addiction, think of the results that will occur after partaking in that unHygienic food. After you have fasted, your body will be pure and you will react violently to foods that are unsuited for consumption. Is it worth contaminating your body and feeling sick? No, it is not worth it.
Our natural foods are so delicious in themselves, that soon no other food or drugs will appeal to you. Certainly anyone's sweet tooth can be satisfied by some delicious figs, dates, bananas or any of the other dried and fresh fruits that you may choose from.
According to Dr. Shelton, our poisonous habits are the major cause of kidney impairment. He says that all poisons from decomposed foods as well as the poisons of tobacco, alcohol, tea, coffee, etc., constantly overtax the kidneys and eventually impair them to such an extent as to result in their disintegration. Coffee drinking by itself results in considerable bodily impairment. This is due largely to the caffeine but also to the other toxic substances that it contains., As a result, the stomach, nervous system, heart and kidneys become impaired. This is especially evident in the kidney/s as coffee drinking temporarily increases the amount of urine expelled since the kidneys must get rid of the poisons. The kidneys then eventually become impaired and damaged due to overuse and enervation.
But it is not only the kidneys but all the organs and all the cells of the body that suffer when we indulge in poisonous habits. With this in mind we should avoid all such poisons. Education and knowledge are a great asset in helping to overcome such addictions. A fast will enable us physiologically to overcome these habits but we must also prepare ourselves psychologically. Be determined. Eliminate all negativity and think positively. You do not have to be sick, it is entirely up to you. If you wish to feel great every day with abundant energy and zest for life, you can feel this way. All you have to do is follow the simple requirements for health in regard to proper food and water, exercise, rest, sleep, sunshine, fresh air, and emotional poise.
