The human body produces waste products every day that need to be disposed of. A well-planned fasting cure can help to remove all substances from the body. Dehydration is also important.

Whether classic food fasting, juice cures or abstaining from individual foods such as chocolate or alcohol: fasting is a trend that comes in many forms. In ancient times, the Greek physician Hippocrates of Kos had already recognised fasting as a medical therapy. In particularly bad cases, he even recommended drinking only honey water. He saw sloth and gluttony as causes of obesity that should be countered by abstaining.

"This is still true today. Regular cures help the immune system, can alleviate diseases and positively influence eating habits. The human body produces waste products every day that need to be disposed of. In most cases, the organism can take care of this important task on its own. But over time, it can happen that the detoxification organs are overwhelmed with their work and are not able to remove all substances from the body," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte. The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

When this state of overload occurs, so-called slags are formed. These are acid residues neutralised by the body, lime and nano particles, cholesterol compounds or even heavy metals absorbed from the outside burden the body and can even damage it in the worst case. "That is why it is advisable to regularly support the body in its task of ridding itself of waste products in a natural way," advises Frank Felte, referring to the tradition of therapeutic fasting according to the findings of the German doctor Dr Otto Buchinger. As a rule, therapeutic fasting generally involves no solid food for five to a maximum of 35 days. Depending on the fasting model, the fasting person feeds exclusively on vegetable broth, juices, tea and water. According to the theory, this is to activate the body's self-healing powers. Some people also want to lose a few pounds this way.

The results are very presentable: "The positive effects of regular cures have already been impressively proven by a whole series of clinical studies. Neurodermatitis, psoriasis, allergies and asthma can be treated or alleviated just as successfully with regular fasting cures as back pain to rheumatic diseases, headaches and migraines, stomach and intestinal problems, cardiovascular diseases, sleep disorders, diabetes or obesity. Researchers around the world are now even of the opinion that temporarily abstaining from food has lasting benefits for health and prolongs life," emphasises Frank Felte.

He also knows that it can sometimes be very useful to rid the body of excess water while fasting. The balance of water in the body is crucial, because too much water in the tissues poses health risks. Many people have too much water in their tissues, and women are particularly affected. In this case, one speaks of water retention - medically called oedema. This not only looks spongy and unattractive, but also puts a strain on the circulation, drives up blood pressure and damages health in the long run. If you want to counteract these risks, you should dehydrate your body. Natura Vitalis has developed "Aqua GO Strong", special dehydration capsules.
