Efficacy of Fasting
Efficacy of Fasting
Description
Preface

There is no exaggeration in saying that fasting has established its supremacy over other remedies in the treatment of a disease. All naturopaths corroborate this fact. It is a known fact that Mahatma Gandhi was staunch advocate of fasting.

The occurrence of most diseases is due to improper dietetic habits and excessive eating. Our life is maintained on 25% of what we eat and on the remaining 75% live doctors. Though the statement may appear a bit exaggerated it is nevertheless true. There is no doubt that control over eating and occasional fasting when the need arises help us to maintain good health and help the diseased body to regain health.

In the modern age man has been dazzled by scientific discoveries which give material comforts to mankind. Man now regards luxuries as the sole aim of life. As a consequence he has forgotten the importance of fasting. Nobody dies on account of missing a meal or observing a day’s fast. During the Paryushana festival of the Jains even small children observe a fast of eight days without experiencing any ill effects. There are cases in which people thrown on to an uninhabited island or such other place survived without eating anything for thirty to forty days or more.

There are a number of examples which show that health has improved after observing a fast scientifically. If one observes a fast properly concludes it in a disciplined manner and thereafter resumes taking simple and nutritious diet gradually one is sure to get the benefit of good health.

This book though small in size gives detailed scientific information about fasting and if the reader gets inspiration from it and puts into practice whatever he learns from it with a view to getting better health he is sure to be benefited.

This book has been written keeping in mind modern physiology and it gives complete scientific information about every aspect of fasting. We are confident that it will provide logical and authentic reading material to laymen elites and medical men. Readers are requested to give their contribution to this humble endeavor by sending their views and letting us know the experiences.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
