Benefits of fasting

With all types of fasting, whatever the intention, there are significant benefits to be gained from it. The benefits span from our physical bodies, through our minds and penetrate deep into our spirits. At the core of it all, one is willingly denying and refraining from indulging in food for a period of time for a certain purpose or higher cause. This in itself over a period of time has a profound affect on ones psyche and on ones life. To be able to resist the primal need for food and to deny the urge of consumption is a tremendous achievement, if one can manage that, then many other perceived difficulties which humans psychologically face can be overcome with ease.

Below are a few benefits of fasting though the list could go on and on.
