Mitochondrial Damage and Autophagy

On the back of CURE'S very interesting post regarding mitochondria I thought I'd put up my reply as a post as the subject is so important it needs wider dissemination. I have written on the subject in the past, but the subject needs refreshing on a regular basis:

With regard to cancer the focus is shifting from damaged DNA being causal to damaged mitochondria.

There is an alternative to looking for a supplement to change the dynamic. Why not clear out old and damaged mitochondria? It will cost nothing and is simple to do:

Fast!

Wonderful things happen when you fast, one of which is HGH (human growth hormone) shoots up to protect muscle and the bigger effect is autophagy. Basically a mechanism is initiated whereby damaged and junk DNA, viruses, bacteria etc is sent for recycling.

Lots of information on youtube, but here's a sub 3 minute example.

Further information - research the modern godfather of fasting, Dr. Jason Fung.

I think we have to start to fast once a week as our ansectors used to do. For example : tuesday for Hanuman Ji, Hanuman Ji will solve many problems related to health :) again brihaspativaar for vishnu ji ...both Hanuman Ji and Vishnu Ji will solve the problems jointly :)
