The Flow for fasting

The period of Before Fasting
To begin with, you have to prepare your body condition for fasting.
In this period, you have to make an order of your time for meal, and gradually you can reduce the amount of your meal and also make your organ prepared for fasting.
You can make yourself (outside and inside) set for fasting by reducing activities of your organ and its humor.
Soon after you get into fasting, a lot of stomach acid will be secreted, so sudden stop for your meal will harm your organs.
That is why we have to make a period for reduction of meal.
Normally, this period needs three days before fasting, but if your blood sugar level or your blood pressure is high, it can be 4 or 5 days before.
Also if you use medicines, and you cannot stop it suddenly, it takes longer time.
