Muslims around the world have experienced the spiritual cleansing of Ramadan for over a thousand years. Whilst the Ramadan fast is ingrained in the fabric of the Islamic way of life, there’s a common worry that fasting over such a long period of time may have negative health effects. If you are one of those worriers, The Gaggler has some encouraging ideas for you…as well as a special treat for you to try at home.
Ramadan is the perfect time to spiritually cleanse yourself and detox your body. By not eating or drinking throughout the day your body has an opportunity to detoxify your digestive system throughout the month. When your body starts eating into its fat reserves to create energy during the daily fast, it will burn away harmful toxins that may be stored in your fat deposits. As the month progresses, you should see and feel positive changes if you maintain a balanced diet after breaking your fast and continue low-impact exercise during the day.
You can also indulge in detoxifying body scrubs to increase your overall state of wellbeing during the month of Ramadan. A favourite of the Gaggler editorial team is the Detoxifying and Purifying Matcha Body Scrub which we want to share with you here in our At-Home DIY Beauty Video Series.
