How do bugs come from rotten food?

Flies become attracted to some rotting material or spoiled food in your home and use that as a breeding ground to lay their eggs which hatch to become maggots.

The “worms” are maggots (larvae of the common house fly). They come from eggs of a fly, when a fly lands and deposits the eggs on the food.

Fasting helps bring harmony inside the body, detoxify and balance the dishes

As we know from June the earth begins its downward journey. This reduces the sunlight in the northern hemisphere. Besides, monsoon leads to the cooling of the earth. The cooling of the earth leads to the slowing of the digestive system. This leads to an increase in Kapha and Vata dosha. Besides the equinox is a time when rain has bid adieu and people can once again begin eating delicious meals. Fasting in a way helps to build the reproductive system of women thereby increasing their childbearing capacity.

Fasting during the day helps in establishing self-control and focus. It is considered to be the perfect way of self-restraint and realization also. Fasting cures the disease of the body and it pures the digest system also. It also corrects you at the every aspect of life and it makes self-discipline and dedication. It is a kind of training given to the body and mind to withstand all hardships and make you strong enough to persist under extreme difficulties.
