However, the book does not stop there. In a first, it also explores the complex emotional aspects of fasting. Because food touches all of us so deeply, some of our earliest memories are of being held by our mothers and being fed, fasting inevitably brings up the many associations we have between food and nurturing. The book goes a long way toward helping sort out the complex feelings that arise during fasting, thus helping lessen any tendency to turn fasting into an emotional unkindness to the self.
And finally, The Fasting Path, explores in great detail the physical health benefits from fasting. Citing scores of studies, clinical trials, and physician reports the book shows how fasting has powerful effects on diseases from type 2 diabetes to heart disease. It is perhaps the most effective approach for healing childhood epilepsy for instance and has shown great effects on irritable bowel disease and arthritis.
Stephen Buhner maintains a powerfully supportive voice throughout the text of this book, bringing a welcome addition to books on fasting. The book is not strident, as many are. It is not a diatribe by a true believer, but simply a sharing by someone who has traveled the path that we all travel, from someone who suffers the human condition as we all do.
Whether you want to simply find out more about fasting, fast by yourself at home, engage in a vision quest (fasting in wilderness or desert), or spend your time in a fasting retreat center you will find this book the best there is. I recommend it very highly.
Don't get me wrong, Lemonade Fasting has it's place, but water fasting sounds superior and quicker if done properly. This book also covers Lemonade and Juice Fasting, and not only that, it covers in great depth, all the Spiritual, Emotional and Physical benefits of fasting.
An excellent book that I would highly recommend to anyone that is on a journey of holistic healing.
