How to Do a Spring Equinox Fast
Spring Equinox is a very special time of the year that marks the beginning of the warm season. During this time, the day is split in 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, and people across the globe use Spring Equinox to cleanse their bodies through fasting and prayers. However, many non-Christians decide to cleanse their bodies during the Equinox as well just for the healthís sake. Whatever your reason is, feel free to use these tips for spring cleanse to get rid of any toxins that your body has been accumulating for 6 months.
Make up your mind on the duration
Usually, people fast from 3 to 10 days. However, 10 days is probably way too long for a newbie, so choose the period of 4-6 days if thatís your first time fasting.
Cleanse your bowels
The first thing you want to do is get rid of old toxins. The best way to do that is a good old enema. You can either start with a series of micro-enemas (100-200 ml 2-3 times a day) or make one big enema and forget about it. Warm chamomile potion will do the trick. Thatís a nasty manipulation, but many people prefer enemas to laxatives because they work superfast. However, feel free to take some laxatives instead of enemas.
There are some good and bad news about Equinox Fast: the good news is you can eat whenever you want and as much as you want. The bad news is you are only allowed to eat certain types of fruits and vegetables that arenít very nutritious. Particularly, the day is split in two parts:
- 8 a.m. - 12 a.m. During this period of time, you can eat citruses (lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits), apples, and kiwis. Feel free to eat them fresh or juiced. Besides, you can drink water and herbal teas.
- 12 p.m. Ė 8 p.m. This is a veggie time. You can eat cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, garlic, dandelion leaves, beet, and parsley. Again, you can eat them fresh, juice them, or make salads with some olive oil. Just remember that you shouldnít eat any salt. Feel free to drink water and herbal teas during the day.
Drink laxative teas
They are not too strong and help you get rid of toxins in your colon.
Donít starve for too long
Prolonged fasting can be dangerous, so choose your menu wisely and donít fast longer than 6 days.
Donít fast if you have serious health problems
Consult with your doctor if you are not sure whether or not fasting can do any harm.
Donít dive into fasting without preparation
Itís not a good idea to eat Buffalo wings and drink beer the last day before the Equinox, and then just start starving right off the bat. Start preparing for the trial several days before the Equinox by refusing to certain products and drinking plenty of water. You also want to keep eating healthy and moderately for several days after the Fast is over by slowly adding new products to your menu.
Stay away from restaurants
Try to avoid people eating regularly during the Fast to avoid temptation. Ideally, you want to be with someone whoís stick to the same diet to help and support each other.
Spring Equinox Fast is a great way to cleanse your body, mind, and soul. Alongside with spiritual bliss, you get an amazing feeling of lightness and joy. However, thatís a starvation diet that should be kept wisely. Be extra attentive to your body during the Fast and donít hesitate to stop it if you have any complications. Use our tips to succeed with your trial and feel light and happy.
