Water Fasting Programs

What is Water Fasting?

Fasting has been a common practice in many cultures, employed for physical, mental and spiritual health. It is nature’s way of allowing your body to cleanse and heal itself. Water fasting, also known as a water cleanse, is a type of fasting in which you consume only water for a set period of time.

Your body’s detoxification process mainly depends on drinking water. Oxygen in the water helps your digestive system and triggers your body to eliminate harmful toxins. That’s why water fasting is also known as ‘water cleansing’. During water fasting, you take in zero calories.

The LifeCo Approach to Water Fasting

The LifeCo’s holistic approach to water fasting can help you achieve effective and long term cleanse both physically, mentally and emotionally. Water Fasting Program at The LifeCo consists of MINERAL water, himalayan salt with rich minerals, many natural therapies and treatments that boost your immune system and detoxification.

Water is essential for life. Regular hydration and water intake is important to maintain brain and other bodily functions. Water Fasting Program is designed to boost your energy and physical performance levels in for you to maintain in your daily life. It supports your metabolism and ketosis process. As your body switches to ketosis during water fasting, you start to burn more fat.

”Water is the only cure handed by nature.

Benefits of Water Fasting

Water fasting is a great way to detoxify and rejuvenate your body. During the fasting period, the whole body goes into a resting or recovering state. This is when the body goes into a self regulating machine and starts to eat up damaged cells, tissues, or scars. This process allows the body to go into a serious detoxification mode.

Water Fasting also has a highly positive anti-aging effect. During water fasting, you only consume around 3-4 liters of water per day, so your system has no reason to expend energy on digestion, rather using the energy to heal. Increased water intake helps to carry toxins from the body, leading to restoration of the cells and metabolism thus rejuvenating the body from the inside out.

During water fasting, you are not allowed to eat or drink anything besides water. This means your body can not access to carbohydrates. When body can not get energy from carbohydrates, it uses fats as primary energy source. This is how water fasting helps break down fats and supports weight loss.

Water is very important to maintain a healthy body. Thus, water fasting has tremendous benefits on the body from the inside out. Water fasting helps to maintain brain and other bodily functions. It reduces the risk of chronic diseases by lowering blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol.

Administering this mixture of calcium, magnesium, a complex of vitamin B directly into the blood- stream, providing an immediate therapeutic response by correcting any existing deficiencies, hydrating your system and also helping throughout your detoxification period. The number of Mineral IV’s depend on your body’s response to the program but on average, 2 Mineral IV’s are administered per week especially after 7-10 days.

With Colon Hydrotherapy, your colon will be cleansed with the aid of a professional nurse. This therapy not only helps you to purify the undissolved or undigested food remnants on the intestinal wall but also improves intestinal functions.

Breaking the Fast

“For each week of water-fasting we strongly recommend two days of fast-breaking.”

Fast Breaking Plan

7-day Water Fasting                            +           2-day Fast Breaking

14-day Water Fasting                          +           4-day Fast Breaking

21-day or more Water Fasting           +           6-day Fast Breaking

During the water fast, the body undergoes several biological changes. When you are coming out of a fast, introducing regular foods slowly and strategically will help you break a fast safely, without disrupting your digestive system.

In order to avoid potential problems in the liver and kidneys and ease the digestion process, fast-breaking is highly recommended.

Taking it slow and easy is not only kind to your body, but allows you the opportunity to integrate your new-found clarity on your relationship to food.

We suggest you to start with melons!

As melons have high water content, about 90%, we use and serve them to provide proper hydration during the fast-breaking period. Melons are nutrient-dense and essential for maintaining good nutrition after water fasting. They have high supplies of vitamin A, vitamin 6 and B6 along with amino acids and antioxidants to nourish the body.

Krystle's Water Fasting Experience

The LifeCo Phuket Guest Krystle explains how a simple water fasting diet in the right environment helped her deal with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) in a short amount of time! Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term, progressive, and disabling autoimmune disease.

It causes inflammation, swelling, and pain in and around the joints and other body organs. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) usually affects the hands and feet first, but it can occur in any joint.
