Fasting allows the body to cleanse and regenerate itself. However, a fast does not mean your body has to go under duress. Of course, fasting with only pure water and herbal teas is highly beneficial. Nevertheless, I obtained good results by drinking liters of coconut water during some fasts. Naturally extremely sweet, coconut water, not milk, contains lots of electrolytes, which keep the body well hydrated. Moreover, I personally need some salt every day, to avoid getting low blood pressure. Therefore, I use Japanese miso paste to get enough salt. Miso is made with quality sea salt and fermented soya beans, barley or rice. Additionally, miso paste is full of probiotics, a lovely way to help our digestive system.
