CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - April 05, 2017) - According to its proponents, water fasting provides quick and efficient detox for therapeutic effects. Fasting in general is based on the premise that the body functions optimally when it has periods of rest from digestion. The claims are that fasting can eliminate many medical conditions or simply alleviate symptoms by releasing toxins from the body. Those who partake in water fasting must only consume 1-2 quarts of purified or distilled water each day with no meals or additional drinks. The key, is for the body to go into a state of ketosis (commonly known to low-carb dieters). Ketosis occurs when carbs are eliminated from the diet, thus signaling to the body to burn fat for energy, rather than excess carbs.
Supporters of water fasting are well-aware of the discomfort caused by this state. Emotional issues, hunger pangs, lack of energy, irritability, dizziness, lack of sleep and fatigue are all issues that arise with most fasts, but supporters say these challenges are temporary. The fast is meant to last between 4-5 days or until the return of 'true hunger' which is basically the body crying out for nourishment. Diet Doc, a national leader in the medical weight loss industry advises that consumers proceed with caution when it comes to extreme fasting. Intermittent fasts are often adhered to by obese patients, but this normally occurs in a doctor-supervised environment. Fasting without medical supervision can be dangerous for those with certain medical conditions, and with water fasting in particular, water intoxication is a very serious threat to one's health.
Furthermore, water fasting does not take into account the real reason behind the obesity epidemic, which is emotional eating due to stress. Most likely, if a patient has the discipline to complete a water fast, they will also have the discipline to commit to healthy eating habits. For patients who struggle with emotional eating, failing to complete a very difficult water fast can further damage their self-esteem. Diet Doc tackles emotional eating habits with powerful prescription medications that regulate mood and suppress the appetite. Their customized diet plans ensure that individuals are eating a healthy number of calories each day while producing fast weight loss results.
