After 18 years of juice fasting, I tried a 30-day water fast in March 2012 and based on that profound experience I realized that juice fasting isn’t really fasting, it’s more like a severely restricted diet. Since then I have used 2-4 day water fasts when I needed to release toxins and emotions from life’s trials and tribulations, and connect to my higher self to gain clarity and inspiration.
Water fasting has become a channel for self-healing work with my clients; utilizing journaling, guidance, reflection, Reiki energy and essential oils – to experience deeper healing, self-awareness and communion with Spirit.
Top 7 Reasons Why I Choose Water Over Juice Fasting
- Ketosis happens (body breaks down stored toxins in fat cells)
- Hunger shuts off
- Mind slows down
- Feel your body healing
- Total rest and rejuvenation of all systems
- Process and release stored memories and repressed emotions
- Connect to your heart, higher self, inspiration and intuition

*Water fasting is best in a retreat setting, without work and distractions, where you can quietly rest and take in the nourishment of nature.
