thumb fruits22The milder fasting with fruit and herb teas ( fruit fasting ) is the main therapy in Dr Emilova Clinic. The fast includes 1-2 kilograms of fresh seasonal fruit and freshly squeezed juices, intermixed with herb teas with honey. This is all that is eaten in 15-20 days. This type of fast has the same effect as the full water fast but is much more universal and easy to do. The point of this temporary stop of various and complex food is to open the self healing and rejuvenation processes of the body. The program stimulates the function of all cleansing organs, which leads to powerful detoxification. The immune strength of the body is increased. and the nervous system is balanced. Thinking gets calmer and easier and the negative emotions disappear during the fast. The milder fast is a very effective anti depression and anti stress program, which can be done both as a treatment and as a prophylactic. Last but not least the fast helps you lose your extra weight, which is a common problem for us with our modern sedentary lifestyle.

Fasting has an effect not only on the body but also on the soul and spirit. The senses get sharpened and the overall state of one is improved. The many elements of our program which create a balance between activity and rest lead to a complete equilibrium in the system mind/emotions <=> body. Your self-confidence and body tone is strengthened. The milder fasting improves the quality and joy of your life. The fast is a dependable way to get rid of bad habits.

thumb clinic05Why do we feel so good when we fast? Our body is burdened by unhealthy food, stress, lack of physical activity, toxins in the air and the water, electromagnetic exposure and radiation. In time that leads to the accumulation of toxins in our cells. When we fast the cells are cleansed, the toxins get out quickly. The metabolic process is improved and ageing process is slowed down.

Why does it happen? Our body uses its energy predominantly for digestion and for the processing of the consumed nutrients. When we eat too much, move too little, have too much stress our body cannot cope with the toxins and cannot cleans all of them. There is simply no time nor energy left for cleansing. When fasting the body can use almost all its energy for cleansing of the cells and for burning fat. The extraneous substances are neutralized and thrown out of the body. The processes of self healing are natural to our body and they can cure many different diseases, which are the result of intoxication. Unlike the medication treatments, this method does not only get rid of the symptoms, but gets rid of the causes of the illnesses. What is more- during the fast all the health problems are solved simultaneously. Some are treated quicker, others are treated more slowly, according to the state of the disorders and their effect. The improvement of the state of one organ has a positive effect on all others. Our body a super intelligent system which when given time and opportunity, manages to reach a complete state of health on its own.

Bulgaria offers a great variety of fruit. The abundance of valuable nutrients in them makes the healing effect of the mild fast even stronger. It is easily done and excluding some specific diseases, it is suitable for children and adults, for healthier people and for those taking a lot of medicine. Fasting is a unique combination of pleasure and what is useful for the body. One does not feel hunger during the fast, rather feels a nice lightness and vitality and has the desire to play and have fun.

Fasting is the oldest treatment method, which every being instinctively practices when he or she gets ill. He stops eating and sometimes drinking, hides somewhere and after a while gets out out healed. Man noticed this behavior amongst animals and started practicing it himself. The method is called fasting. Nowadays some specialists use the more precise term nutritional therapy.

Healing fasting as a treatment goes back thousand of years in history. The oldest recorded cases date back to ancient Egypt. The method is mentioned often in the writings of ancient scientists from Babylon, Judea, Persia, China, Tibet, Greece and Rome. Amongst the first doctors treating patients with fasting were the fathers of modern medicine- Avicenna and Hypocrites, who said: "If the body is not cleansed, the more we feed it, the more harm we do to it."

Fasting was widely practiced during the Middle Ages and later in Germany, England and Switzerland. The first mention of fasting in Russia is from the 18th century.

Fasting was practiced by Paul Bragg (1895-1976) and Herbert Shelton (1895-1985), honorary doctors of medicine, chiropractor and naturopractor. In 1928 Shelton founded his School of Health, in 1948 he was one of the founders of the American Society of Natural Hygiene. In 1978 he formed a professional association known today as the International Association of Hygiene Medical Practitioners (IAHP). The main purpose of this organization is to publish studies on the fasting treatment result.

emi18In the 20 th century fasting is widespread due to the medical practice based greatly on the natural therapeutic methods. Fasting is scientifically studied in Russia, Germany, the USA, France, Australia and Bulgaria. The works of the German doctor Otto Buchinger got world wide acclaim. His clinics also work today.

Bulgaria's contribution was to develop the softer fasting treatment method. The famous healer Lydia Kovacheva ingeniously decided to add fresh fruit and herb teas with honey to the fast. That is how the current fasting methods was created. It combines the powerfully healing effect of fasting with the easiness and universal suitability of healthy nutritious days.

Dr Emilova tried the method on herself in 1992. She was so impressed with the result that she decided to start a Clinic for treatment with fruit. Her experience in this field shows that fasting with fruit has the same healing effect as the water fast, but it is easier to take by the patients. Dr Emilova develops the method to a higher level, combining it with extensive tests done with the most advanced medical equipment. Thus the treatment without any risk can be applied for the cure of serious illnesses, which until recently was considered impossible. Dr Emilova was awarded the Michail Lomonosov Honour in 2007 for her personal contribution for the good relations between Russia and Bulgaria and for her high achievements in health care.
