Why fasting and detoxification works:
When you detox or fasting your attempt is to clean your blood plasma which your red and white blood cell travels in.
The plasma is like the river but it also carries the nutrients that all the different types of cells of your body system needs. Therefore, good nutrients are a necessary condition for platelets. Without the right nutrition your blood can become thin and unable to stop internal bleeding.
When you detox and fasting, your attempt is to flush your system by eliminating most of the bad bacterias, fungus, parasite from your blood plasma so that they stop contaminateting your cells.
The red and white blood cells are always being regenerated. It takes 16 weeks for your body to produce new red blood cells and several weeks to replace all the red cells. The white blood cells takes less time than that.
The RBCs are important because they're the ones that carries oxygen throughout your body tissues and organs.
When you do a detox always make sure you've consumed enough ion because ion deficiency will result into anaemia. When you give blood always make sure you compensate by drinking enough water and taking the necessary ion.
There are millions of your cells that are currently being made and dying every day. If your body could not generate new cells every now and then you would die from toxin much quicker.
Your cells are being made in the bone marrow which produces stem cells. Your body uses these sterm cells to produce different types of blood cells. It is estimated that your body produces two million new red cells every second.
You are not left with the same cells from childhood through adulthood. You are not even left with the same cells 24 hrs from now. But information is passed trough from dying to new cells.
The cells are affected by their environment, precisely the characteristic of the blood plasma. The plasma is like water. This is why professionals refer to it as the river.
The characteristic of the blood plasma is determined by what we eat. The blood plasma can either be the river of life or the river of death, it will all depends on our diet, whether we're exercising or not.
Hence, the more nutritious food we eat the cleaner the river that nourishes our cells, tissues and organs become. So if we're not eating healthy we are doing ourselves a disservice.
When we detox the purpose is to filter this river from parasite, fungus and microbes. When we eat notoriously the purpose is to supply the river with the necessary nutrients to repair cells, tissues and organs.
