Fasting for Health Recap
What happens when we fall ill and have symptoms like fever, chills, and other uncomfortable signs of healing? How can fasting help? Well, let’s take a look at our household pets. When a dog or cat gets sick, they usually abstain from eating for a few days. This is an innate intelligence at work. Fasting gives your body a break from having to digest food so it can focus resources for autophagy. Autophagy is your body’s natural way of cleaning out sick and damaged cells, including tumorigenic and pre-cancer cells, and those with free radical damage. Other benefits of fasting include regeneration of new immune cells, blood sugar regulation, hormone regulation, resetting your microbiome, and reducing systemic inflammation.
