Dont feed sickness – Times of India

When an animal, such as a dog or cat, is sick or unwell, its first natural instinct is to refuse food. Their body automatically cuts down appetite till they recover. They may drink water, but nothing else. This is bodys intelligence taking over to heal and recover.Intuitive eatingHumans arent any different. At least, intuitively. All of us are products of nature and we have been designed the same. When we call in sick, the first thing that happens is that our appetites shut down too. Our taste of mouth changes and our sensitivity to smell and taste is numbed. This is our bodys intelligence and subtle biofeedback trying to tell us that its time we give our body some rest.

This is fasting in a way and has been practised since the longest time across all religions. Fasting is inbuilt in us and is considered medicinal if you actually go back and read its history. It is our bodys uncomplicated way of cleaning and healing. Unfortunately, we have moved too far from nature and our natural instincts. We are constantly eating and munching even when sick, thereby compromising our own immunity and masking the inbuilt mechanism to heal.Take a break
