Do you know we store emotions too in the body? When you go through emotional experiences, they get stored. Like you were in hospital taking care of someone, some personal experiences that made you upset , fears etc etc. When you fast , it helps to cleanse those emotions too. And you can start fresh again .
If you health conditions do not allow fasting then you can try mono meals, give up alcohol, dairy . Eat simple food. We all have wisdom within us and will tell us exactly what we need to do so follow your own wisdom.
Navratri started and it’s time to fast.
