The Balance for Life Retreat in Deerfield Beach, Florida, is offering medically supervised fasting retreats in an ideal, oceanfront location.
Historically, animals and humans naturally adapted to challenging conditions when food availability vacillated between periods of abundance and extreme deprivation. With advances in food production, fasting ceased to be a consideration for many, yet research confirms that controlled periods of water-only fasting, also known as a water cleanse, may provide major health benefits.
“Fasting under resting conditions allows the body to redirect its energy and blood supply away from digestion and food use to the work of elimination and repair. The process of detoxification is enhanced as waste products and environmental toxins are more efficiently eliminated,” explains Dr. Frank Sabatino, DC, Ph.D., a leading expert on water-only fasting and director of the Balance for Life program.
The profound natural healing process that occurs during fasting reduces inflammation and pain throughout the entire body, allowing the body and immune system to “reboot and self-correct.” Those that have experienced fasting often report increased energy and overall health improvement, sometimes quite dramatically.
Sabatino explains, “Previous guests have seen remarkable results including reduced insulin dependency, a decrease in bad cholesterol levels, improved blood sugar, elimination of chronic pain, lower blood pressure and more.”
