What are Some Fasting Health Victories?
Yes that is sex. There is a relationship of sex and fasting. That connection is even seen in the Christian bible in I Corinthians 7:5 (King James Version). If you have sexual issues or just want better sex, fasting may help you. If we take the Bible on this, it is not for one partner to be fasting but both. Although, it appears that if only one is fasting, he or she can have a better sexual experience.
Remember that good sex or the physical ability to have good sex is recognized as a sign of good overall physical health.
When you fast, you are healing your body back to health. That healing would naturally be expected to improve your sex life, better health – better sex.
There are things that happen to your body while fasting that should more directly improve sex. For example, the body starts to cannibalize bad cells first. The abnormal growth of the prostate in men may be helped. Sex is improved if such happens. Fasting tends to bring the body back into hormonal balance. Sex is improved if such happens. This has been noted in women with hormonal imbalances or the major life change, menopause.
Sex during a fast can be better. It maybe the right time for what some write about in sexual healing and optimum sex.
When you eat, energy is directed to your digestive system. We have discussed this before. And that is not an insignificant amount of energy. But in the midst of a fast that energy is available for other purposes. That energy can be called upon for the primary and secondary energy requirements of good sex.
So the optimum time for the best sex maybe sometime after the digestive energy drain has been turned off during a fast. This is especially true if you are in relatively good health and are doing what we, for lack of a better term, might call a maintenance fast.
In the biblical Old Testament the regularly scheduled and commanded fasts were not for individual or specific healing situations. But they appear to be more for maintenance of health as in a seasonal cleansing.
Fasting may help you have better sex.
