Fasting As A Woman

Melissa believes in the power of fasting and encourages everyone to look at the science behind the benefits. She talks about how it has worked for her and knows what kind of difference it has made.  

Fasting Ages

When it comes to children and teens, it’s not good to fast at those ages. Their bodies are developing and need time to grow into adulthood. After the growth stage, then it is good to start fasting.


Melissa talks about how you should listen to experts behind the benefits of fasting. There is a lot of misinformation about the topic, so it’s best to make sure you are listening to those on the clinical side of things.    

Stress Factors

There are a lot of stress factors that can play a part in overall health. It’s important to make sure that you are healthy in other areas of your life before trying to fast. Eating a whole foods based diet is also important before jumping into fasting.

Run Down

Overall, fasting is good for you. The key is to get your body prepped and healthy to take on fasting.
