35% of Americans are obese, and 65% are overweight. These astounding statistics are terrifying since obesity should be a rare thing; and actually, up until about 100 years ago, it was. So what has changed in the last century that has made us be so unhealthy, with autoimmune disease percentages increasing every year, cardiovascular disorders killing millions of people, and all kinds of symptoms attacking the population as if it was the normal thing to have headaches, sinus infections, allergies, insomnia, etc.?

People have to start wondering what has changed in the las decades that has provoked such a horrible state of health, especially in this nation. Really, what do you think? I wanna know your opinion! If you are still wondering, I'm going to suggest a couple of things or more:

Fasting is the oldest remedy to cure yourself from diseases, and even better, to prevent yourself from getting sick.
Our bodies retain a fair amount of toxins since we are born, and because we eat all the time, and do other things our bodies need to work on, it cannot focus solely in the process of eliminating those toxins. We can detoxify our bodies through our diet, but even that is not as effective as fasting.
Water fasting, is the process in which a person eats nothing accompanied by drinking a good amount of water throughout the day, at least half your size in ounces, as I mentioned in my last post: "WATER".
For people not used to fasting, I recommend starting to fast twice a month for 24 hours. Then you can start fasting once a week from 24 to 36 hours, and when your body gets used to it, and has cleansed part of your toxins, you can continue fasting once a week and then every two or three months do a 3 to 4 days fasting.
The preparation and closing of the fasting is as important as the fasting itself, because if you don't prepare your body with good foods before starting the fast it won't be as effective, and if you don't break your fast with the right foods your body can get loaded of new toxins and big discomfort can take place instead of peace, relaxation, and the feeling of being clean.

Water is the essential constituent of life, and the primary stuff we are made of. We need water! But how much? The minimum amount we should be drinking a day would be half our weight in ounces, in other words, if I weight 200lbs, then I should be drinking 100 ounces of water a day as the minimum amount.
Without enough water our body reaches a state of dehydration in which one or more physiological functions are sacrificed, therefore we feel fatigue, discomfort, and eventually we become "sick".
Signs of dehydration are not so obvious if we are not used to drink a lot of water. Whenever our mouths are dry is already too late and we are in a more advanced state of dehydration.
